After a car accident killed her parents when she was a child, Bronagh Murphy chose to box herself off from people in an effort to keep herself from future hurt. If she doesn’t befriend people, talk to them or acknowledge them in any way they leave her alone just like she wants.
When Dominic Slater enters her life, ignoring him is all she has to do to get his attention. Dominic is used to attention, and when he and his brothers move to Dublin, Ireland for family business, he gets nothing but attention. Attention from everyone except the beautiful brunette with a sharp tongue.
Dominic wants Bronagh and the only way he can get to her, is by dragging her from the boxed off corner she has herself trapped in the only way he knows how… by force.
Dominic wants her, and what Dominic wants, Dominic gets.
Worldbuilding: This story takes place in Dublin, Ireland! I love this entire series and a lot of it has to do with it being set in a different place than America!
Characters: The main characters in this novel are Dominic Slater and Bronagh Murphy. Bronagh is not who people would call sociable and for good reason. She leaves others alone and in return is left alone, for the most part. That is until a certain American lad comes to town. Dominic Slater is the most arrogant and annoying boy Bronagh has ever met and she can honestly say she hates his guts. Unfortunately, Dominic cannot get enough of Bronagh and loves tormenting her. But what starts out as tormenting soon turns to lust and then love, can Dominic convince Bronagh to take a chance on his alpha male self? Or will their fighting and bickering show Bronagh how incompatible they are?
Plot: This is a love/hate romance between Dominic and Bronagh as well as a story of family and redemption!
Writing: This novel is written in first person point of view of Bronagh. It is the first novel in the Slater Brothers series but can be read as a standalone.
Curb Appeal: I love this cover, it relates back to the story and embodies Dominic!! The blurb focuses on Bronagh and her backstory more than what their story will entail. But does a good job of setting the scene.
Ultimately: This is an over the top angst filled new adult story! Even though the main characters were borderline abusive to each other I still loved them together. All in all, if you are in the mood for hero who just wants his girl to give him the time of day and a heroine who isn’t afraid to stand her ground then come check out Dominic!!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
