Branna Murphy is broken. For months now she has been a part of a one-sided relationship to a man she loves more than life itself. She prayed for a miracle, and hoped something would change, but found that was wishful thinking.

Talking didn’t work. Shouting didn’t work. Crying didn’t work. Nothing bloody worked.

Ryder Slater is furious. For months now he has been lying to a woman he would take a bullet for in order to protect her. He is involved in something that goes deeper than his old past, and if he strays off target, people will start to die. People he loves.

He couldn’t talk. He couldn’t slip up. He couldn’t lose focus. He couldn’t do a damn thing.

Things between Ryder and Branna are at rock bottom, and Ryder knows it. Not only will he be taking on a force that could destroy his whole family, but he will be battling tooth and nail to save his relationship and keep the love of his life by his side.

Ryder targeted Branna from the first moment he saw her, and what Ryder targets, Ryder dominates.



I love LA Casey’s work since a friend recommend it for me. An fresh easy reading series, funny, sizzling and entertaining. I was curious about this book because he’s different from his brothers. Ryder was so mysterious and he less exposed. But after finished Branna’s POV here, sorry LA Casey I will become rain in your parade.

  • So much angst. This book dominated with how miserable Branna because of Ryder and her escape to the workplace. I liked new character Ash, he becomes the sunshine in this book. I almost lost a big portion of fresh jokes from LA Casey in here.
  • Couldn’t connect with the main characters. A little difficult to enjoyed the first person POV if I can’t bonding with the narrator. I liked Branna’s protective and maturity over the years. But her character portrayed inconsistent and different than her image from the first book. She has contradictory tendency and confusing because it keeps changing.
  • Too much flashback. I liked the last flashback because it was a new scene and very fit into Branna’s condition. But the repetition of their first meet and how hot their early relationship didn’t appeal to me. It has been already told in Dominic’s book. I prefer to read more heart-melting scene Ryder to get his second chance.
  • Too much conflict. This book didn’t focus on Ryder-Branna’s relationship but everyone’s problem. I felt emptiness towards the story so it must be stuffed with various content.
  • Anti climax. The secret that become main problem in here didn’t surprised me at all and way too simple. The conclusion from their relationship and Ryder’s struggle to get his second chance too rushed. It has to be deeper than that.

The ending was romantic, but so predictable. Lucky there is no cliffhanger but may be more appropriate for the final book of this series. So far Alec still my favorite Slater brothers for me.

“Just tellin’ you like it is,” I smirked. “Kid.”

Ash growled. “You have five-seconds.”

Oh, shit.

I stood up and quickly scurried around to the other side of our work counter, and placed my hands in front of my chest.

“Ash,” I warned, my voice low. “Don’t even think about it.”

He rounded the station and advanced on me, a smirk playing on his lips.

“Don’t!” I said firmly, hoping my no-bullshit-demeanour would give him reason to stop.

It didn’t, if anything, it only fuelled the freak to come at me faster.

“No!” I shrieked and made a move to dive behind the counter but Ash was too fast, and caught me mid-air.

He set me down, and full on assaulted my sides with his fingertips as he tickled me. I laughed, shrieked some more, and did the strangest moves known to man as I made my bid to escape the terror.

“Mercy!” I laughed. “For the love of God, mercy!”

Ash pulled back on his tickling but kept hold of me as I steadied myself and came down from my laughing high. I was about to playfully sucker punch him and make a run for the break room when I heard my name being… bellowed.
