Aideen Collins is a free spirit. She is outspoken and tough as nails, but she has to be after growing up in a house full of men. Family means everything to Aideen. Her family consists of her four brothers, her father, and her group of wild friends. Aideen is protective of her family, there is not a lot she wouldn’t do to keep them safe.

Kane Slater is a tortured soul. Literally. He is misunderstood by people, even feared by them thanks to the scars that mar his face and body. He relishes in their fear because people who fear you, won’t want to know you. He likes his circle limited to his brothers and their girlfriends, but a thorn from an Irish rose is dug deep into Kane’s side, and her name is Aideen Collins.

Aideen and Kane don’t get along… at all. Aideen is the only woman who stands up to Kane and throws his bullshit back at him without fear of hurting him. Kane is the only man who can see right through Aideen’s tough exterior. He knows her deepest, and darkest secrets. They can’t stand each other, but they want each other. Badly. They hide their need behind arguments, and banter, but when Kane drops his guard for all to see, and succumbs to an illness within his body, it’s Aideen who steps up to the plate to take care of him.

An illness is the least of their worries when a devil from Kane’s past comes back to play with him. Everybody in Kane’s life is threatened, and with his body fighting against him, he doesn’t know if the luck of the Irish is enough to keep his family safe and his demons at bay.

Kane needs Aideen, and what Kane needs, Kane takes.


Firstly I need to get off my chest, the ending sucked big time, I am so disappointed I want to cry, I  needed full closure for Aideen and Kane and without giving away too much, I needed to see the end result.  I was so in the frame of mind this is one really great read, loved the fire scene and was really looking forward to their future and then BAM the ending happens and I am left shattered and really unhappy.  I have gotten it off my chest now so I need to share what I simply loved and adored.

Love  the Slater boys and the dynamic group of girls who surround this family, they all have their issues and I really enjoyed the feisty nature of Kane and Aideen.  We all love people differently and our needs in a relationship can form many levels and I really enjoyed seeing their relationship change, mature and find happiness in so many different forms and stages.  Kane is alpha and Aideen is the centre of his world, yes it takes them time to realise this but I love the comedy banter that surrounds this group and how these two eventually find their way.

Finally, I hope Kane and Aideens journey is continued in the next brothers story as I do not want to miss out on anything to do with these two, I really hope it is explained with all the joy, love and excitement it should have been in this book.
