Evelyn I love mystery books. It is one of my favorite genres. Even though the scary books keep me up at night I do enjoy a good scare.

"Dominic is set in Ireland; most of the characters are Irish, and the Irish have a dialect that is completely different from any other dialect in the world. We tend to break words down when speaking and jumble them….."

"I want to make it clear that when you see an Irish character in Dominic say the word “me” where “my” should be, that is supposed to be written that way. Everything is “me” here in Ireland and rarely “my”… "

I’m so in hate with this novel, there won’t be any pretty graphics to make my review sweeter.

I just couldn’t do it anymore. It was horrible brainwashing disaster that left me feeling confused and very angry. The characters were dumb, childish and very unlikeable, the plot was boring and not original at all and I simp

What the hell was that???? Seriously when I started reading this book I was hoping for your typical alpha male, with alpha male tendencies, and the typical heroine who's an absolute doormat. So basically what I wanted was the hero to swoop in and wham! bham! it's over!

What I got was:
1. An OTT hormonal alpha male teenage boy (who I loved!)
2. A foul mouthed heroine (who reminded me of myself)
3. A shit ton of sexual tension and teenage angst

DOMINIC is set in Ireland; most of the characters are Irish, and the Irish have a dialect that is completely different from any other dialect in the world. We tend to break words down when speaking and jumble them up; we're weird like that.

I want to make it clear that when you see an Irish (Dublin) character in DOMINIC and the rest of the Slater Brothers series know that they are based on my accent and how I speak, when

I'm not really even sure where to start with this book. I read the warning attached to the book claiming there is abundance of cursing, alpha behavior, and OTT drama. However, Ms. Casey fails to inform the reader there is bullying, slut shaming, gratuitous violence, and an emotionally abusive relationship. Oh yes, no matter how many times you giggle during this book, the relationship between the MCs is abusive.

Similar to Beautiful Disaster in the set up-bad boy who illegally fights and is us

If you're a prude, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK.
If you can't handle a hero and heroine who are batshit crazy, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK.
If you can't handle swearing, violence and a bunch of random stuff been thrown at the hero's head, SERIOUSLY, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK.
If you DON'T heed the author's warning and go ahead and read the book KNOWING you will hate what is in the warnings then you my friend, are a special kind of stupid.

Stopped at 38%

Firstly, this book is filled with cuss! That didn't thrill me at all to continue my reading. But I don't think that Irish girl cuss that much daily! Plus that temper was not sitting well.

Secondly, it was kind annoying to see those two banter with each other. I felt like sewing her mouth. Way too much of drama!! Nothing that was interesting!

Lastly, few hot tattooed boys and a fighter in it, nothing seems appealing.

Hence, I am out for here!

So I'll admit that this started off a little rough!

If you're not a fan of assholes with no limits to what they can and can't do, can and can't say then don't read this. You'll cringe. But I'm the kind of girl that really loves an ASSHOLE ALPHA and I freaking loveeeedddd this. There was just so much juiciness. Yes, they're a little immature but they're in high school!!! There's a lot of dirty language but again it didn't bother me in the slightest. I got more annoyed at the slap happiness at one

I read this a while ago and needed to get my head together for a decent review.

As you can tell by the rating, I wasn't a fan. It had nothing to do with the Irish dialogue. I've never read such angry people before. I swear they spent most of the book beating on each other. I never connected with Dominic. He wanted her so bad but yet tormented her left and right in ways that were borderline sexual assault. I could deal with the language but I shit you not every 3r

Listen I not a picky reader. Most things that annoy my friends in books I can overlook and still find some enjoyment in it. After sleeping on it and rethinking this I've revised my rating to two stars.

My main issue with this book was:


I try to keep my life and reads drama free. I love me some angst and emotional reads but this was just too, too much...


Issue Number #2: The constant fighting. Someone was always hitting or beating on another for childish, silly reasons.

Well, it’s safe to say that this book is a complete RIOT! It’s totally not what I was expecting. When I first saw that cover and read the blurb, I was expecting a romance in a similar style to Katy Evans’ Real but this is very different from that. In fact, when I first realised that the two main protagonists are actually in High School, I was initially a little put off, but there’s something about this book that really kind of captivated me and I was pretty much sucked in.

Fighting, bickering, jealousy, love-hate, funny goodness!

This book was quite a ride from beginning to end. Bronagh is an Irish girl who lost her parents at a young age and lives with her older sister. She decided when she lost her parents that she wouldn’t form any other relationships because it hurt too much to lose them. So she keeps completely to herself in school and in her life aside from her sister.

When Americans Dominic and Damien start at her school, Dominic is immediately intrigued by t

BLURB: Orphaned at a young age, eighteen year old Bronagh is used to keeping people at a distance, afraid to let anyone in and eventually get hurt. That all changes the day the hot American Dominic walks into her school and is constantly in her face. Everywhere she turns, he's there, annoying the fuck out of her. Of course, that can only mean one thing...

RATING: DNF @ 58% :(

Dominic just isn’t for me. I can’t connect with the characters nor can I respect them. I realize the blurb warns about all the possible reasons why someone would not like the story but there is a limit. I was expecting a little bit of everything mentioned in the blurb, and I made my peace with all that BEFORE starting, but what I can’t condone is violence, no matter how bad a temper someone has. The heroine has a bad temper - fine. She hits the hero on multiple occasions - NO

The book centers around Bronagh ‘Bee’ Jane Murphy (17, turns 18) and Dominic ‘Nico’ Slater (18). Dominic is new to Bronagh's school and they immediately clash. Already having a bully after her, Bronagh doesn't need another. Specially not one who calls her his own.. Overall I didn't like it. The re-read was a complete bust and I really regret starting it. I wanted to quit straight away, but I kept saying to myself; ‘‘maybe there will be some character gro

This is easily the hardest review I’ve written simply because I want to do this book justice. But here goes.

Dominic is more than a story about love and loss, but also a story about trust and letting go.

Bronagh lost her parents when she was nine, leaving her sister Branna as her guardian and the only person she loves and trusts. At 18, Bronagh has built a barrier around herself and her heart that no one has been able to break through. At least until Dominic, an American prick, comes into this sp
This is the definition of huge disappointment. I was so ready for a good contemporary romance but I didn't get that. What I got was a huge disappointment!

I didn't too much care for Bronagh but my biggest problem with this story was Dominic. Anyone who thinks he's book boyfriend material has a problem.

I know now days most books have an "alpha male" and yes I like some of those alpha males. But Dominic isn't an alpha male he's a douchelord!

First off he's a bully. He does stuff on purpose just to p
This book is honestly not for everyone. When I read a bunch of reviews I was very hesitant about giving it a try. I will admit that this book kept me interested...I am a bit embarrassed by that considering it was more like a drama filled soap opera. I obviously still have some part of me that enjoys the drama filled life of others!!! Seeing as this is not real and just a story, I was able to sit back and just enjoy.

The Slater brothers are definitely as alpha as they come. They have moved to Irel

I read Ryder first before I read Dominic. Listening to this book is like walking on a memory lane in my high school. The banter between Dominic and Bronagh is cute. Really cute. I love Dominic. He is such a tease and smart mouth. Usually the heroine is the sassy mouth, but on Dominic, the hero is the sassy mouth.

Dominic is my favorite hero on this series so far. On the other hand, Bronagh... I have problem with her. She is sheltered. When the story progresses, she became needy, stupid and immat

Based in Dublin, Ireland - Dominic is centred around 18 year old Bronagh.

Bronagh's a sharp tongued, no holds, honest to god ballzy MC.
She lives with her older sister Brenna, whom also takes on the role of the parent, as theirs were killed many years ago.

Ever since then, Bronaghs distant herself from the human population,

I don't know where I got my long patience and manage to finish this book. I picked this up out on a whim because I'm in the mood for angsty read. However, I didn't expect to deal with incredibly annoying characters and their over the fucking top drama. I've encountered books with bullies/jerk heroes like Jared Trent (Bully), Reed Royal (Paper Princess), Caine Carraway (Hero) etc.. They have reasons why they're acting like assholes.

I really wanted to know what was gonna happen. That's a good thing, no?

Where is my banner of feminism and gender equality?

Why did I enjoy this book so much? There were so many things that normally turn me off like –

1. The Heroine (Bronagh) was bullied by the Hero (Dominic)
2. The Heroine threw tantrums and had emotional issues
3. The Hero was the stereotypical good looking, strong, can’t nobody beat him male
4. The Heroine hid behind the Hero and had him fight her battles
5. The Heroine would run her mouth, but couldn’t back up her words
