We've reached the halfway mark with L.A Casey! I adore this woman minions, no joke she's straight up awesome. I don't think I'll ever introduce an author I don't love obsessively to be honest. I fell in love with Dominic on the spot, it was so different from the usual NA reads, and the characters were hard to resist.
Now this was another recommendation from Amazon I ignored...for a while people....there comes a time where you just click on it and Goodreads that ish. Not only is it one of the Jungle's best reads, but L.A blew me away with her amazing characters. It's one of those books where I loved all the characters, and was excited for them to get their own story. I'll be honest I was nervous about the high school thing, I just didn't see the characters being all that...obviously I was wrong *blushes*. I adored Dominic and Bronagh, like to the extent I question why they're not in my life for real, 'cause I genuinely believe we could be homies. There were too many time to count when I wanted to punch Dominic, and I just did not see how he was ever going to win Bronagh around, but somehow he breaks through with not just her but us too minions. I can't tell you how much I loved Bronagh, she's the unconventional kickass heroine we all look for. Lee does an amazing job of illustrating the issues of bullying, resentment, jealousy and lust in high school wonderfully. There were many times I was like 'Damn Lee you so get me'. But more than that I like how she breaks away from the stereotypical alpha hero story line, there was drama, suspense, passion, amusement and just great book awesomeness people. The writing style's not for everyone, but she worked it well and had me 1-Clicking from reading page one. For her first novel I think she kicked it outta the park, and she's got me anxiously waiting for the Slater borthers to get their stories. I've never been so invested in almost every singel character, so that right there speaks volumes minions, you need to own this badboy plain and simple.
Yes I know what's coming, 'Another short review Alii?'. Yup I'm still running behind, and with the holidays approaching I am all over the place. But rest assured my long reviews are coming, don't you doubt it people. The link to said review will be on the Reviews page HERE, as well as on Goodreads so don't worry about it. So until that link goes live, I have the luscious cover and synopsis below, with buy links of course!
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.
