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.

Damien! I cannot conceal how long I've been waiting and waiting and waiting for this book ever since the Slater Bro series' first novel. We've all known that Alannah has always had it bad the the blonde Slater ever since their high school days but fate was not on her side that time. After one beautiful night together turned nightmare, Alannah has given up on that earth shattering love.... That is.... until he who broke her heart returns and is now determined than ever to right his wrongs and ...more

What. A. Disappointment.

I was so excited for this book. So freaking excited. I’ve waited years for Damian. And this is what I get. Some generic sob story.

First of all, I hated Alannah. Casey ruined her character.
If the author didn’t have the balls to write about her heroine being in a physical relationship with someone other then the hero then she shouldn’t have wrote it. Why make a complete utter mess out of it.
So the character alannah has a fuckbuddy Dante. Which is totally cool,

Damien is the dark horse of the bunch!

The Slater brothers had been in Ireland working off a debt for a mobster. Damien’s past has messed him up emotionally and three only way he can find comfort is through sex, but he never gets involved with any girl, it is just one and done.

Alannah fell for Damien the first moment she saw him in class and does not want to be one his one hit list. However, one night out drinking and dancing at a club and she can’t resist. He knows she isn’t the kind of girl who

I was being a big 'ol scaredy cat and kept putting off reading this book because I just was not ready for this series to end. I've been invested in the Slater brothers since I started the series back in 2014 and I'm not sure how to deal with them being over. But I'm glad I finally found the my lady-balls and decided to read Damien because I loved it.

I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from Damien and Alannah but I knew whatever it was was going to make one fan

This was a nice reading! Damien was a hottie and I wanted his book since I finished Dominic, and he had to be the last Slater Brother, of course! I was quite obsessed with him and how his story with Alannah would unfold. Damien took a while to get his great ass in my hands, that's for sur

I've been dying for this book in forever. Damien is the one that I 've dying for from the start. He is so different to his brothers even his twin. I know all the brothers have there own personality and dufferent. But there is just something about Damien that I love. He is so sexy I love his white hair and grey eyes. I can't pick which brother I love the most cause they are all brilliant. The woman are just has crazy as the brother. But Alan

Damien was probably one of my most anticipated reads this year. Hell its been one of my most anticipated reads for years if I’m honest. The last slater brothers story to be told and in my opinion the best one and that’s saying a lot because I have loved this series from the beginning.

Damien for me was the story I wanted, no needed the most. His past is painful and so sad and it’s the one that broken my heart.

Alannah she for me is the innocent one out of all of the women in this series. She has

Damien was the fifth book in the Slater Brothers series by LA Casey. I have loved everything about this series and I have been anxiously waiting Damien’s story for several years.

Damien Slater was the youngest Slater brother and the twin to Dominic (book one). As with his brothers, he was tall and gorgeous. When we first met him he was the funny and light hearted one, but we learned over the series, it was a mask. He left for awhile and had been back a year or so when the book began.

Alannah Ryan
Arrrrghhhhh! Well.... I didn't hate it, but I didn't like it either. This book felt like it lacked something compared to the others. I felt like since there were snippets here and there with Alannah and Damien in previous books that all was left for them to do was talk and be together and then DONE. And that is exactly what this book was. Also, too much of the book was taken over with other stuff that I didn't feel like we got any of Alannah and Damien.

Also, Alannah was the only one who didn't

What a waste of time. Okay maybe that’s a little mean but I am just disappointed - I had such high expectations for this book and feel really let down. There was nothing “new” to this book - Very repetitive version of the previous books. The first 50% of the book felt like the author just wanted her word count up - why else would she have the heroine tell each family member THE SAME STORY OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I was so over it - like we read what went down between Damien and Alannah and how they ...more

I've been a bad, bad, bad girl.

I've been neglecting my responsibilities and putting off reading Damien, because - I'm a pussy and have this tiny little problem that follows me everywhere I go called "AFRAID OF DISAPPOINTMENT I'D RATHER LIVE UNDER A ROCK".

I've waited for this book a looooooong time, since I was 17-ish.
So my tastes were completely different and, I can now certainly state, out of control. As in, I needed help (same seventeen

This is not what I was expecting for Damien's book. First, we never get a chapter in his view. The entire series we've not seen inside his head, shouldn't we have in his own book?
Alannah, she was depressing. Complete Debbie Downer. I wanted backbone and strength! She let everyone walk over her to the very end.
Very little was out in to building a connection between them, we spent way to much time reading about a cat, a kid, or art.

I love this entire series and I was so looking forward to this one! I think a lot of fans were!

This one had a little less drama than the others, but still had a good dose of drama! The fear and pain Alana felt for her mother I felt too! But with me it's from my experience with my mom. (Still not accepting..)

I really enjoyed this one, it was a great read! With lots of interactions with the brothers and sisters! It was so good to "see" them all again!!

Since when I read DOMINIC I was in love with Damien. His book was the most wanted and I remember I was sad when I discovered that it would be one of the last. My love for him was huge. But you guys understand, right? DAMIEN was not only my most anticipated book in the series, but pretty much everyone who is a Slater fan. It was with my heart pounding that I began to read and it was with a smile on my face that I finished it. The book was a lot lighter than I expected

I can't believe that I've finally read Damien and Alannah's book! And I really can't believe that it was everything that I could've hoped for, and more!

I remember when I first started this series in 2014 and I felt like I would die waiting for this book. This book has been a very anticipated read for me and a part of me worried that once I finally read it, that it wouldn't meet my expectations. I mean, when you wait four years to read about a couple you have some very HIGH expectatio

Damien is the fifth book in the Slater Brothers Series, it's a interconnecting series so i would recommend reading in order to get the full experience of this great series. For any L.A. Casey fan this is the book we've all been waiting for since book one!! And what a read we have been given in Damien's book.

Alannah and Damien's journey to HEA is full of up's and down's, emotion's are all up in the air. With secrets revealed can redemption and forgiveness be given??

Damien was everything i hoped

26% that's how far I made it into this book before I cried! so emotional at the beginning but before the end I was in stitches laughing it was crazy good, another brilliant addition to the Slater Series Damien does not disappoint ladies he is everything I hoped for and more.
Alannah is quirkier than I thought from the other books but she's is very likeable but I want her man so it's ok if I hate her a bit right?
Awesome Read cannot wait for what comes next from this author.

So.....There were a lot of funny and crazy moments with Slater Brothers and their ladies but.. ughh. I enjoyed it , it was a good book but not a great one not by long shot. This is not what I was expecting for Damien's book like at all. If i'm being honest I had quite a few issues with this one.

This story is about Damien and Alannah finding their way back to one another. For those who don't know what happened: the two of them had a sexual encounter six years ago, after which Damien left. And by

The story could be amazing but is flat and boring. I was expecting characters richer in personality and the story built differently. I’m actually disappointed with the characters because they were forced to look funny but most times it was unnecessary for the story itself. Besides, the ending was so anticlimax. Not a bad book but definitely not the best of this series which is sad because Damien seemed to be the best character. I thought Alannah was going to be the best female from this series b ...more

Alannah is the innocent one and she has a heart of gold and will basically do anything for her friends and family. Damien is damien, lol.

* ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review*

At this point I think it is impossible not to have a crush on one of these brothers. if you've read all the books in this series you should already know who Damien Slater is. But you are wrong because you only know a part of him. you remember him as that tormented adolescent and heartbreaker. But Damien Slater is much more than the Damien teenager. It is true he has broken the heart of the very docile Alannah. And he took away a piece of it.

Nooooooooooo ! Considerin this was the last book in the series , I was thinkin that we would be going out with a bang ... and god honest truth , I was expectin a lot more from Damien and Alannah's book coz I've been waiting a really long time to read about them . But nooooooooooooooooooooooooo .....
This was just ok . Alannah really pissed me off to no end . Her behavior was outright immature and childish . And Damien , Damien was a little too bland in my opinion .
