Aideen Collins is fed up. She is at her wits’ end with her eon long pregnancy, her new-found paranoia, but mostly she is fed up with her boyfriend’s constant hovering and nit-picking.
Kane Slater is happier than ever. He is about to become a father for the first time with the woman he loves. Little does he know that Aideen is both literally and figuratively a ticking time bomb. He just has to survive a few more weeks of murderous hormonal outbursts, and all will be well… or so he hopes.
They’re both caught up with the expected arrival of their little one, but in the back of their minds is a shadow that won’t fade away. Neither of them talk about it, but the shadow’s lingering presence casts doubt over their relationship.
Big Phil worked his way into their minds many weeks ago and rooted himself as the haunting figure. Without even trying, he ruins things and causes problems. He watches them from afar, hoping he can break their family.
Aideen’s instincts to protect her own are stronger than ever. If Big Phil wants to hurt those dearest to her, he is going to have one hell of a fight on his hands.
Aideen worships Kane, and what Aideen worships, Aideen shelters.

This was just brilliant I think I must of laugh out loads at least 5 time I just luv Alec's humour he is so funny the the Bronagh an Alannah moment was just a classic I just really enjoyed it I can't get enough of this series it just keeps getting better xxx
☆ I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆
With the upending birth of the first baby Slater, Kane and Aideen find themselves still on the fence with Big Phil still on the loose and gunning to make them pay with blood.
I have to say though, with these factors in the midst, Aideen was a lot more mellow than I had anticipated. I mean, compared to the rest of the series, for once, I felt like I could let low and breathe and just enjoy the Slater guys and gals and all of their craziness.
I was really excited for this novel, and while I can’t go into the deets about the baby and all, I will divulge that it was priceless, very family oriented, and gave off an endless amount of laughs!
!Not to mention, we do get peaks at a certain Blonde Slater and Alannah, as well as, the first two chapters of Ryder and Branna’s book! *screams*!
Be prepared ladies, a new Slater is about to be born in the mix, and with it, a whole lot of mayhem and chaos in its wake!! #One-clickNOW!#
Aideen is a grand example of why I love L.A. Casey's writing!
First of all, I have been a fan of this series from the start not only because of its hot men, but mostly because of the funny parts. Reading AIDEEN was a validation of those reasons. It was an amazing experience because the plot is unpredictable. It's unique and at this point, I definitely don't know what's going to happen next.
Kane and Aideen's relationship sure have grown, but so did all of the other couples. I just love how they all interacted with one another here. They have soooo many hilarious scenes, but what struck me most are their heartfelt moments. I just love when the boys show just how much they care for each other.
I'm so happy for most of them, but I'm still very uneasy when it comes to Ryder and Branna. Oh my.. L.A. Casey better have a good explanation about what's happening to them!! Haha! But I do trust the author, so my worries are sort of unnecessary.
I am definitely looking forward to KANE's book!!! I'm sooo excited to know what happens next!! Reading this book is one heck of a tease for the next one! ;)
An ARC was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
Before i start writing my review, i want to emphasize that the novels between the books are very important to be read for the development of all the stories... Be sure and read them with the right order!!!!
“How can you be scared of her? She’s tiny with a pregnant belly.” Nico belly laughed. Kane lowered his voice. “I’m not scared of her. I’m scared of the hormones.” Nico matched his voice to Kane’s in volume. “Why are you talking about them like they’re a separate being?” “They are a separate being,” Kane stated. “They’re pure fucking evil. Do you understand me? Evil.” Damien snickered. “Hormones don’t go away, you know? Women are always hormonal, it just triples during pregnancy.” “Exactly, I just have to survive the next few weeks, then things will go back to the way they normally were.” Ryder guffawed. “You mean when Aideen spat curse words whenever she saw you?” “Ahhh,” Kane sighed. “The good ol’ days.”
Well, i enjoyed and this novel very much!!! And this one, even small, it made me cry a little bit... I was very emotional, i think!!! After the latest developments, Aideen is coming closer to the big date, even though that in the back of her mind is still present Big Phil and his antics... She is very happy for her baby, but she is very scared of what will happen when Big Phil will return to take his revenge from Kane and the ones he loves...
Aideen was absolutely gorgeous and in here and Kane was so protective of his girl and his unborn child... Their lives are connecting forever and they will do everything in their power, nobody to overshadow their happiness...
“I'm getting your name inked on my left wrist and our child's on my right. Wrists are a lethal part of the body to be cut; any laceration could potientially be fatal. Without you and our baby I might as well be dead, I'm putting you both in plain view so I never lose sight of that.” I touched my chest as a lump formed in my throat. “That was oddly disturbin’ and insanely beautiful at the same time.”
In here, we also realized how bad the things have become between Branna and Ryder and I'm dying to read everything about them in the next book!!!
Una stellina è anche troppo per questo ammasso incoerente di pagine... La trama fa acqua da tutte le parti, i personaggi sono pessimi, il linguaggio è volgare e scurrile, lo stile... Non c'è stile! La scena del parto è agghiacciante, mi sono cadute le braccia e non le ho ancora ritrovate. Le ragazze sono delle rincitrullite che pensano solo al sesso e all'alcool I ragazzi sono i soliti gorilloni senza cervello che non pensano ad altro che a battersi il petto e dichiarare "Tu sei mia, cazzo!" Non ricordavo Alec così piagnucolone, Nico così pesante e Kane così stupido... Non voglio neanche parlare del finale, che mi viene l'ulcera. Bleah!
I didn't even mean to finish this in a little bit over an hour but once I started I couldn't stop reading and now I'm even more excited to read Ryder and Damien's books. Very addictive writing, that's for sure!
5 "I love this family" stars --------- 5 "eu amo essa família" estrelas
Ah! Que delicia de livro! Graças não teve TANTA tensão como nos outros. Ai, você termina o livro bem e fica feliz que leu mais uma história gostosa da família Slater. E pensa tantas coisas legais sobre a autora.
Mas... ai você "vira" a página. E tem o primeiro capítulo do livro do Ryder. E tem vontade de matar o Ryder. E tem vontade de xingar a autora, porque o livro dele só vai sair em fevereiro de 2016!!!! Como assim??? Ahhhh nem!!! Devia ter parado na Aideen (mentira! eu não ia aguentar! hahah)
Bom, sobre AIDEEN... SE VOCÊ NÂO LEU TODOS OS LIVROS ANTERIORES NÂO CONTINUE!!! PARE AGORA!!! NÂAAAAOOOOOOOOO!!! TO AVISANDO HEIN! OLHAAAA LÁ... DEPOIS NÃO ME XINGA.... TEM CERTEZA?
Tão tá bom. . . . . . . . .. Como nos outros livros, AIDEEN começa onde KANE parou. No KANE eu tinha ficado muito empolgada quando o Damien apareceu. Gritei "finalmente!!! Ele voltou!!! uhuuuu", mas ai o livro termina. haaha E em AIDEEN pude rir da reação dos irmãos encontrando o Slater mais novo que estava sumido demais. Gente! Desde o primeiro livro o Damien era meu amado. (O Kane em segundo! Que homem!!! *milhões de coraçõezinhos saindo pelos olhos*)
As briguinhas estão de volta, mas em dose menor. A autora aqui focou na diversão. E eu ri. Eu amoooooo a interação desses personagens. A gente já conhece eles dos outros livros então já espera certas coisas deles e, mesmo assim, não deixa de ser engraçado. Foi muito bom!
Se eu recomendo? Tem gente que não gosta dessa série, né. Então eu indico para aqueles que, como eu, AMAM o estilo de escrever da L.A Casey, e seus personagens e suas histórias. Valeu cada risada! E agora é aguardar o livro do RYDER que COM CERTEZA vai ter sofrimento. Aiiiii!
The story of Aideen and Kane picks after 8 weeks of what happened with Aideen at the school. She's tired and irritated of everyone babying her! But thanks to the awesome family she has there is happiness even if some or the other member of the family is 'Off' the track.
This was everything i hoped for and more.. Where there is HEA for Kane and Aideen, there is the start of Ryder and Branna's..
I laughed out loud so many times that my cheeks were hurting. I had tears from laughing so hard.. There was a place i might have sobbed too but that was entirely because of Kane... :(
Another great book by LA that was romantic, funny, sexy, and hearbreaking (for Ryder and Branna)
***ARC provided in exchange for an honest review - Sanne / Scandalous Book Blog***
An L.A. Casey original! She writes stories like nobodies business and still makes it fresh and original each and every time.
In this novella you really see the development of her writing process from great to epic.
This story was mature yet contained all the humor you’d expect from her.
Aideen and Kane are a force to be reckoned with... Kane’s alpha tendencies and Aideen’s big mouth make for one hell of a story which will have you entertained throughout and go all warm and fuzzy at the same time.
All of our favorite characters come to show again and will have you laugh, cry and yell... A lot! So make sure to be inside and alone or you’ll get funny looks thrown at you. I know I had that happening to me.
“That was oddly disturbin’ and insanely beautiful at the same time.”
Whatever would that mean? It sure is crazy, beautiful! ;-)
“Can you imagine little Irish versions of Slater women? Fuck, too terrifying to even think about.”
Ah our pregnant Aideen.... Girl or boy? Whatever the outcome that’ll be it’ll cause some hilarious moments.
“You counted the seconds it took for me to come?” “Of course.” “Is that a lad thing?” “Probably just a me thing.” Aideen & Kane
Some schmexy time between Aideen and Kane. Which will not come as easy as you might think. (Quote above and beneath)
“I can’t believe it took so long for me to successfully seduce you. Usually I just have to look at you the right way and you’re game.” “I was worried about the little one.” Aideen & Kane
“Don’t call me Bronagh or pretty girl anymore.” “What will I call you if not Bronagh or my pretty girl?” “From th-this moment onwards I shall be know as MC Hammered.” Bronagh & Dominic
Now, at this point I was in stitches. This chapter is beyond hilarious and you should read this novella for that particular part alone!
“What’s the worst that could happen?”
We know life ain’t sunshine and butterflies all the time so what’ll happen when darkness comes rearing it’s ugly head again?
I dare you to read and find out... Really I dare you! ;-)
L.A Casey delivers once again another great Slater related book and Aideen fits in well with the rest of the gang (a nutter lol ) its bold , its funny , its romantic everything you want in a Slater brothers girl and a Slater himself that's for sure I cannot wait for Ryder ! I don't like to give spoilers so I will say this if you love the slaters you need this book , if you have not read any shame on you ! lol but really you need these men in your life , would Aideen be my book girlfriend ? hell yes and if ya wanna throw in Kane I'm down with that !
I was laughing so much when I read it. In the "Kane" book there were some funny moments and of course drama but this book was hilarious and not only with Aideen&Kane but also with the other characters too.I can't pick which was my favorite scene! BUT I loved Dominic and Alec!!!They were so damn FUNNY...
"I've never seen him move so fast in my life. It's like he caught a glimse of Magic Mike cast and took off after them."
So Aideen&Kane were really sweet and funny together.They were arguing about the gender of the baby...in the end the boys won... They were some intense moments between them but true love won! But for the most part there were some very funny scenes...
"You shouldn't lie like that,not about threesomes. It's hurtful."-Nico "It's hurtful becausethiw is a threesome that isn't comin' true and it's killin' all of you." "This doesn't make it any less evil to lie about it. You got poor Alec's hopes up."-Kane "Just Alec's?" "Mine and Dominic's too."-Kane "Damn right."-Nico "You're all to easy to play with." "You made Alec cry."
One of the funniest scenes between the brothers was when Aideen was in labor...I was laughing so hard with Alec...
"Stop pushing?" "Squeeze your cheeks together and keep that little Slater up there until Kane gets here."-Alec "It doesn't work like that, Alec.Honey, you're doing beautifully." "She can't do beautifully because Kane isn;t here! He needs to be here for this."-Alec "Tell the baby that." "Stop your journey down the vaginal canal,we're not ready for you yet.Your daddy is at the gym pumping iron,have some respect and wait for him."
And then Nico tried to change baby's diaper and Alec wanted to help... You know that meant disaster...right...?
If you want an easy reading and to laugh a lot this is the book for you!xxx
First off - some may wonder about the book cover, why is it not a picture perfect image of a woman in the late stages of pregnancy - well its because it reflects the character the story is about. And lets face it - MOST women's belly's look like this when they're pregnant (Mine did)
So I have loved these characters since I first read DOMINIC
In this Novella we have Aideen and Kane, now Aideen is fed up. She is at her wits’ end with her eon long pregnancy, OH how I remember that feeling!
Now Kane is my favourite #SlaterBrother and he is happy, he has Aideen, a baby on the way.
The Slater's are all focused on the arrival of Baby He/She... but there is still a threat lurking in the background, but It was nice that we got to just hang with the guys and see the next generation of the #Slaters being born. Big Phil is still a threat, I am sure that in the next book we may see what his next move might be.
Aideen worships Kane, but it was nice to see that Aideen has not lost her sass or hardheadedness and she puts her foot down when she needs to.
Thoughts on Adieen...
Adieen is a hilarious book in many ways, Ms Casey cracks me up with her down to earth Irish humour which comes across so well in the books. Memories of my pregnancies pop up as I read the ARC, the reactions of the Slater Men as Adieen progressed and went on to have the baby. There are plenty of moments in the book that will have you spitting what ever drink you are drinking at the time out all over - I have warned you! (Yes this happened to me)
Thanks for a great read L.A. Casey, I loved being back amongst the Slater family again - Bring on RYDER PS you get a sneak peak of the beginning of Ryder which hopefully will bring Branna and Ryders troubles to a close * fingers crossed for a HEA
LA Casey is a comedic genius! Aideen is a firecracker with a heart of gold, and as always, I ate this book up! The Slater Brothers series is one of my all time favorites, and it just keeps getting better and better!
Aideen and Kane are anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby Slater, and you can imagine the emotions that are spilling out of these two, let alone the whole gang. Still reeling from the aftershocks of the fire, and Aideen being injured, Kane is in his alpha glory, which makes for some hilarious yet absolute tender loving moments.
Damien, the long lost Slater brother is back as well, which makes the family complete, and I will never get tired of the love and support these brothers show each other, it’s awe inspiring to say the least. With all families, we still see the secrets and lies being hidden in the background, and the effects it has on everyone involved.
One of the most hilarious moments throughout the whole series for me is when Aideen is trying to convince Kane to have some sexy time with her. Will she succeed or fail? We can only hope for the best, god knows the girl is in need!
Another hit out of the ball bark for LA Casey, and just one sentence at the end of this book being “What’s the worst that could happen?” has me uber excited for the next book in this brilliant series, which will be Ryder’s story. CANNOT WAIT!
[Editado] Com sua gravidez bem avançada, Aideen tem que lidar com as consequências de sua quase morte (livro anterior, KANE), quando ela sofreu um ataque na escola em que trabalhava por causa de um ajuste de contas de Big Phil contra Kane. Além disso, há toda a dinâmica da familia muito barulhenta dos irmãos Slater, e o retorno de Damien, que havia passado um longo tempo nos Estados Unidos exorcizando seus fantasmas. 4 estrelas _____________
Like every book in the series numbered x,5, this one with Aindeen's POV brings the end of her pregnancy with Kane.
After discovering Kane's health problem, the Slater family now prepare for the arrival of a new member; but at the same time, though no one talk about it, still hanging over them fear the appearance of Big Phil. Since the accident that took Aideen to the hospital, the siblings look for the bad guy. Furthermore, their past still causes some problems, such as Ryder and Branna which undergo a crisis in their relationship, and so it reaches Ado and Kane's relationship.
Several funny scenes are the highlight of the story. More good news on the way, and a not so good to the family. As usual when I just finish to read it, I'm eager to next one.
Aideen is book #3.5 in the Slater Brothers series, I was lucky enough to be gifted an ARC of the book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
I loved this little novella, it was only short but it really managed to pack loads in and as i read it straight after Kane it just felt like an extension of the story.
OK now I get that this family are close but I’m really not sure how I feel about the brothers being there at the business end whilst Aideen was giving birth!!!
This novella was mainly the family reconnecting and being a bit silly and I loved that. But when Aideen was threatening Kane I kind of felt like she was being a bit of a bitch!!! I get why she was upset but yeah MEAN!!!
I love this couple, Kane absolutely adores Aideen and it was evident even when they were arguing.
I so glad that the next book in the series is going to be Ryder’s I’m desperate to know what going on with him. I’m hoping it’s not as dodgy as it appears. But regardless with Ryder and Branna you know it’s going to be an emotional rollercoaster.
Aideen is a great little Slater Brothers nugget and gets 4 stars from me.
LA Casey has done it again written another must read .. You really bring the reader into the story making us feel like we are standing right there witnessing it all. You are still my no 1 author and I know that will never change. Your my one click no matter what you write :) This book had me in stitches I loved every second of it . We get to see the gang and what their all up to wether it be good all bad I'm not telling you cus you have to read it, but this by far was the one that had me in hysterics the most .. My fav scene would have to be the girls drunk in the elevator and the boys changing a diaper I'm not writing names so I don't give anything away lol If you haven't read the slater brothers series I suggest you go and read them all you will love love all of them .. Cannot wait for the next one . Now off to buy this in paperback for my collection
I love how easy it is to slip back in to the Slater family world in just a few pages.... and bam it's like you have never been away....
I was so excited for this book and to finally meet baby Slater.... as always I laughed, I cried, I screamed and I smiled as Aideen and Kane prepared for the arrival of the little one.....
As the whole Slater clan are back together.... I devoured this little novella in one go and was left with a sneak peak of Ryder which makes me need this book like yesterday as I'm left with tears on my face....
This series simply keeps getting better and better..... as does Ms Casey writing.... I'm so excited to see what comes next from her.....
