[Blog Tour + Review] Damien by L.A. Casey

Series: Slater Brothers
Author: L.A. Casey
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, New Adult, Romantic Comedy

What Damien values…

…Damien fights for.

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.”
“Little 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.”


5 Stars from Renee!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, lots of secrets, pain, betrayal, and heartbreak. 

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading them first:
Dominic (Slater Brothers, #1)
Bronagh (Slater Brothers, #1.5) 
Alec (Slater Brothers, #2)
Keela (Slater Brothers #2.5)
Kane (Slater Brothers #3)
Aideen (Slater Brothers, #3.5)
Ryder (Slater Brothers #4)
Branna (Slater Brothers #4.5)

This is Alannah and Damien’s story. Alannah and Damien used to be friends until one night together changed everything. He fled but before he left her he told her he didn’t want to keep her. Damien has a lot of guilt in his life as he blames himself for everything his brothers and their woman have been through. After all if he never made the decision to shoot a gun his family would have had different lives. Now he is back hoping to finally get his woman he left behind. Does Alannah want him still or has she moved on? Alannah is dealing with her own family issues can she handle more from Damien? Does she want to? What happens when she finally lets him back in? Will he give her everything? Or will he hold back all his secrets? What happens when the entire truth of all the brothers comes out? Will he lose Alannah forever? Will they all lose her? 

I loved all these characters in this series. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read. 

I highly recommend this book, this series and this author.


5 Stars from Brianna!

L.A. Casey is dynamite with this series. I fell hard and fast from book one, Dominic (he's totally still my fave Slater boy!) and I haven't stopped loving this family since. Ups. Downs. Complications. Revelations. Finding love. We've seen them go through so much and now Damien is finally getting his book (eeeeeeeeeek!!) and y'all it was so  epic! And since this is the fifth in a series, you should really start at the beginning.

Damien just needs...a second chance. First though he'll have to break down Alannah's walls.

Damien and Alannah gave me an sexy, emotional, intense, twisted journey that captivated me before I even read the first word. This second chance romance was brilliantly written and beautifully told. Undeniable chemistry. Longing feelings. Sizzling attraction. Unforgettable moments. Secrets exposed. Life changing revelations. Forgiveness given. Damien and Alannah certainly lived up to their build up throughout this series and I can't wait for HER novella.

These Slater boys are completely and undeniably irresistible.

I highly recommend this book.
