Goodreads URL: HERE
Plot:   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 force.

Dominic wants her, and what Dominic wants, Dominic gets.

**Due to the strong language and sexual content in this book, it is recommended for readers aged 18 and up**


Holy fuc#%in sh*t this book was not what I had expected!

~And why yes Kat, “Blonde Twin is Amazing!” F*#k, I LOVED Damien!


Dominc was a nice interlude to kick off the stories of the Slater brothers, all FIVE of them, and their relationships with their women and trying to take hold of their pasts.

Dominic tells the story of two individuals at a crossroads with life.

Set in the lavish suburbs of Ireland, we meet one feisty Irish gal and one American underground fighter looking to have a fresh start.

Bronagh (pronounced “Bro-nah” my fellow non-Irish friends) Murphy, lost her parents at a very young age which left big sister Branna as her guardian and rock for all extents and purposes. Due to this loss, Bronagh closes herself off and won’t let anyone get close to her with the exception of big sis.

She meets American transfer students (yes, they are still in high school!) Dominic “Nico” Slater and his twin Damien, and her world is forever shifted upside down. And no, there is no love triangle between her and the two bro’s. There’s other suitor’s vying for the attentions of Bronagh and Nico but no love triangles! Thank god!

Now faced with the only person who can bring her outside of her shell will she succumb to Dominic’s iron will and give him and life a chance? And will Dominic ever win over the girl that is so different from the others and challenges him at every turn?


But with a secret dwindling down that threatens to tear apart everything and could mean deadly consequences, how will everything turn out?

My verdict: An awesome beginning of what’s to come!

Dominic, is filled with everything from: love, renewal, anguish, deceit, letting go and giving into second chances!

I wished that book two would have been on Damien, the “nice” twin that Brongah always refers to but sadly his story won’t be till last! How did I know?! Always save the most anticipated stories to the end!


Instead, book two will focus on Alec, one of Dominic and Damien’s older brothers and it looks to be an interesting one!! Especially because Alec is a ******(no spoiler!)!

Then after we have Kane, Ryder, and lastly Damien.

I really hope that for Ryder’s story that there isn’t additional drama to his and (*I’m not spoiling)’s story! I thought they were awesome together in Dominic and so if there’s any unnecessary developments that lead to a break up, cheating, or moving on to others I will throw a serious tantrum and turn into a Bronagh and whack some people in the head!

And that brings me to another thing! Do all Irish have tempers?! Bronagh and her sister were such a riot and were always quick to flare up and mob someone! Woah. But in another sense, I have to admit that it was kind of funny and entertaining.

As for Dominic, he too had a temper but nothing like Bronagh. His overprotective and possessive as well as alpha male tendencies were tremendous factors as to his character and his love/hate relationship with Bronagh. I swear, they were 99% of the book bickering and Bronagh was always delivering some kind of physical blow to his body.

And let’s not forget their nicknames for each other: Bronagh=”Pretty girl” or “Fat-Arse” and Dominic is “F*#k Face”. Such lovely endearments! Lol


In conclusion: I DEFINITELY recommend this to you girls who dig dominant strong men! I will caution that like I was warned by the author, the main girl is quite the b*tch and the main guy is a prick.

HOWEVER, it still didn’t defer me from loving it all the way and reading this book straight in two sessions! I was that addicted!  L.A. Casey sure writes quite an explosive beginning to the start of something great!

Gosh, I want book two already!!
