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.
“Little bastard,” Alec said, breaking the silence.
Everyone looked at him.
“What?” Damien asked.
“You’re a little bastard,” Alec repeated.
Damien looked at Dominic, then back to Alec and said, “Not understanding why I’m a bastard.”
Damien’s lips twitched at Alec’s correction.
“Sorry, I don’t understand why you’re calling me a little bastard.”
Alec scowled. “Isn’t it obvious?”
“No,” everyone said in unison.
“Unbelievable,” Alec said with a shake of his head. “You’re a little bastard because you bought the woman a star. A fucking star. How the hell can we compete with that?”
The question was put to Kane.
“Buy your girl two stars?” he suggested.
Alec scoffed. “It wouldn’t be impressive since buying a star has been already been done by the little bastard.”
“You could buy me a black hole,” Keela suggested. “I get sucked into one whenever you start talkin’ so it’d be perfect.”
AMIE'S 4 STAR REVIEW
Been waiting for this forever !! We have known about Damien and Alannah's situation all along and because of that you feel for them both now that they are face to face again. I hate that Damien was home for so long before things came to a head but at least we didn't have to read all that avoidance !! Alannah has A LOT going on in her life at this point and it is a bit scary to think she may not have the time to invest in Damien. Of course he is relentless after all these years he wants his girl and he will do whatever to make her see that. They have a super hot chemistry and despite any girls attempts the SLater brothers DO NOT KNOW SLOW !! I give him credit he tried BUT honestly he made himself so irresistible Alannah just couldn't keep her own word !! As always it is nice to catch up with the gang and see how everyone's relationships have progressed. I love seeing the guys as dads and still so in love with their women !! I think I always mention how I love the fiery chicks these men have found AND the dialogue still makes me giggle !! Looking forward to more and then the spin offs too !!
