BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY - Alec (Slater Brothers #2) by L.A. Casey

Alec by L.A. Casey 
(Slater Brothers #2) 
Publication date: August 17th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


Keela Daley is the black sheep of her family. She has always come second to her younger cousin Micah. Even in the eyes of her mother, Micah shone bright, and Keela faded to black. Now, in adulthood, Micah is a bride-to-be and the spotlight is solely on her. Keela is a low priority…or so she thinks.

Alec Slater is a bachelor, never one to bed the same woman, or man, twice. He is a free agent who does what he pleases and answers to no one; that is until a fiery Irish redhead with a temper to match her hair colour knocks him on his arse. Literally.

She hates to admit it, but Keela needs a favour from the cocky Slater brother, a huge favour. She needs him to not only escort her to Micah’s wedding, but to also pose as her boyfriend. Alec agrees to help Keela, but has certain conditions for her to abide by. He wants her body and plans to have it before anyone can say I do.

What he doesn’t plan on is losing his heart as well as the possibility of losing his family when someone from his past threatens his future.

Alec owns Keela, and what Alec owns, Alec keeps.

The Slater Brothers:



L.A. Casey was born, raised and currently resides in Dublin, Ireland. She is a twenty two year old stay at home mother to an almost two year old German Shepherd named Storm and of course, her four and half year old (the half is apparently vital) beautiful little hellion/angel depending on the hour of the day.

Her first novel, Dominic, was released on March 17th, 2014, and on March 21st, 2014, it became an international Amazon bestseller.

For the love of Pete, why?!?! Even though this is a fictional story, quite a few characters from this book need to be on an episode of Jerry Springer. 

I loved the chemistry between Keela and Alec; actually, all of the Slater Brothers have great chemistry, regardless of who they are interacting with. Keela's family is the stuff that nightmares come from; although Alec's parents weren't any better; but at least he had his brothers with him growing up, poor Keela is an only child, and still not good enough in her own mother's eyes. I did enjoy watching the relationship develop between Alec and Keela.

I really loved Dominic's story, and even the Bronagh novella (to an extent, but that's a review for another day). And trust me, I was all into Alec's story...all the way up to close to the end....when the pivotal scene happened. I'm sorry, it just pissed me off. But once the real truth came out, it was surprising the lengths people go through to achieve a particular goal. Even after all of that, Keela's mother still takes the prize for being the biggest douchetwat.

So that's my review, without giving away too much. I really am looking forward to reading about the rest of the brothers, especially when we finally get to Damien's story.

  1. This sounds like a fun read and very character driven too! And I love how much chemistry all the characters seem to have that's always a big plus! Great review, Nicole!
