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.
L.A. Casey strikes again with the magnificent Kane! I can't begin to tell you how amazing this book is! Casey always manages to find a perfect balance between romance/comedy and bad ass in her books and Kane is no exception her books just keep getting better.
Kane is such a sweetheart and everything he has been through completely broke my heart. However, his relationship with Aideen was utterly breathtaking and everything about them as a couple was perfection.
Casey's writing style it spectacular and she has completely outdone herself one again as she brings this soul destroying story to life.
Aideen is a wonderful heroine and her strength and humour is absolutely amazing. She has one of the more difficult storylines in the Slater Brothers series because in this book her life will seriously change and she handles all the changes magnificently and with a charming grace that had me falling in love with her and how she interacts with my favourite Slater.
I can't recommend this book enough it is one of my favourite books of the year and I can not wait for the next instalment.
