Alannah Ryan had always suffered in silence, until that silence became so deafening she spilled secrets that she never intended to. At one point in her life, she yearned for adventure, a nail biting journey … something other than the mundane life she led. Her pleas were answered in the form of a tall, handsome heart breaker with a mop of white hair.
Alannah’s dreams for an exciting twist in her life were shattered because of a teenage mistake. One that has haunted her for over five years, and left her in pieces.
Damien Slater was the reason for every bad thing in the lives of those he loved most. A decision he made when he was just fifteen destroyed his brothers’ lives, and there was nothing he could do to change the things they had endured. Ruining them hurt, but ruining the only woman who wanted him for more than one night hurt a hell of a lot more.
Running away helped Damien heal, and returning to Ireland only caused Alannah more pain. Pain he intended to eradicate and replace with the passion he knew they both shared. Breaking down her walls was not the only challenge Damien faced. Another had plans of his own, and his intentions weren’t for physical vengeance, but something far worse.
Damien values Alannah above all else, and what Damien values, Damien fights for.
5 massive star read.
This is part of a series of interconnected characters. Could it be read as a standalone?, Yes probably but you won't get the full experience that this book deserves. Should it be read as a standalone?, NO NO definatly not. This is one of my favourite series ever and it really needs to all be read from the start to full appreciate the brilliance of this authors work. You will not be disappointed.
As I've said before I've loved this series from book 1 when I first stumbled across Dominic. I can't remember how I actually came about starting this series, but I do know when I first picked up Dominic I didn't realise how invested I would become in this author and this series. I think like most other follows of this series Damien has been the one brother everybody has been waiting for, so of course he was the last one to get his book. We've got to see glimpses of his and Alannah's relationship through the whole series which build up the story even more for me.
Damien's book is a lot lighter in some ways then the others, there's not as much drama as you may expect after reading others in this series, yet its still pact with emotion and so much laughter. But after reading all of it you come to realize that this is how Damien's book is suppose to be with him been the last Slater brother it didn't need anymore drama to it. I will say that I won't be saying anything about Damien and Alannah's relationship or their characters, you need to read that for yourself. What I will say is that yet again I got completly dragged into the Slater's world. I found myself nearly wetting myself at the stuff they got up to, and then nearly crying at other stuff. Just a real emotional journey that I loved every second of.
Thankyou to the author for another brilliant read and for bringing the Slater brother's into my reading world, I can't wait for the next one. Even though there's no Slater brother's left there is those Collins brothers who I know have big stories in them too.
