Blog Tour: Alec 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.

I knew Alec's story was going to be a bit of a wild ride just based on his past. As an escort, Alec rendered his services to both men and women alike. His past his dark and twisted. But, I am a firm believer that anyone can redeem themselves from their past and move on to better futures. Keela breathes a breath of fresh air back into his life. Yet, he allows his past to creep into his future. A threat leads to probably the hardest scene in a book that I've ever read. 

If you've read the reviews on Goodreads, I'm sure most of you know that there is a particular scene about 85% percent of the way through the book that's a serious game changer. For some, it was a breaking point. For others like me, while the turn of events angered me, I went forward to finish the book. While I was rooting for her to walk away a la Ana in Fifty Shades, she caves and forgives him for his trespasses.  

All in all, I liked Alec. Of course like many others, the aforementioned scene was hard to stomach and understand. But as I said, his past was never going to be easy to move on from. This book definitely plays on your emotions and senses. It may not be for everyone, but I hope you give it a try. 

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.
