Dominic

Synopsis

WARNING: If you don’t like a leading male that is a possessive pr**k, Dominic is NOT for you. If you don’t like a leading female that is a stubborn bi**h, Dominic is NOT for you. If you don’t like over the top drama and characters who have bad tempers, Dominic is NOT for you. Most of all, if you don’t like characters who CURSE A LOT and say EXACTLY what they feel and are thinking without sugar coating it then Dominic is REALLY NOT for you.

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.

Review

Dominic is not your typical fighter story. Fighting is a small part of this story with the main focus being on unraveling the secrets of the Slater brothers. Bronagh is a spunky heroine who seems to enjoy pissing off the very temperamental Dominic “Nico” Slater.  Nico is a stick of dynamite just waiting for a flame. L.A. Casey was not kidding about the over the top drama and bad tempers. Nico’s temper isn’t bad, it’s beastly. His possessive nature mixed with Bronagh’s determination to ignore Nico’s demands, results in an explosive relationship.

Since this is the first book in the series there was a lot of history to cover and relationships to develop.  However, I felt like the story took a while to pick up. When I reached the last third or so of the book things really started moving along in the storyline and my attention was captured by the unique and complicated situation the brothers found themselves in. I wish more of the book had focused on this part of the story because I really wanted to see all the details play out.

To be honest, I think I am more interested in some of the other Slater brothers. They are all different in such subtle ways that reading about them in Dominic’s story wasn’t enough. I am sufficiently intrigued and I will definitely read the rest of the series to hear their stories. This book wasn’t what I expected, outside of the author’s warning, because it was definitely all of those things. 😉 L.A. Casey has created a distinctive family dynamic and has given the brothers an exciting jumping off point for the rest of their journey. I’m interested to see where this crazy family will go next.
