Series: Slater Brothers (#3.5)
Author: L.A. Casey
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, New Adult, Romantic Comedy
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.
“Alec offered to have sex with me to help me go into labour.”
Keela snorted. “I’ll have sex with you if it’ll help you go into labour.”
“Me too, I’ll happily do it,” Bronagh chirped.
“You will happily do what?”
We looked to the doorway when Nico and Kane walked into the kitchen. Bronagh grinned knowingly at her boyfriend.
“Me self and Keela are offerin’ to have sex with Aideen to help her go into labour.”
I heard a high-pitched scream come from the hallway.
I stared wide-eyed as Alec skidded into the kitchen, barrelling into his brothers like they were pins and he was a bowling ball.
“Accept the proposition, Aideen,” he pleaded as he tried to remain on his feet. “I’ve dreamt of shit like this for years!”
“I’m going to fucking kick your ass when I get up!” Nico growled from the floor.
Alec turned and kicked him in the stomach. “Shut up and let them think about this! This is important.”
I laughed at Alec and looked to the girls who were shaking their heads. I decided to play with him and his brothers simply because I could use the entertainment.
“Fine, go get the dildos.”
“Oh, my God.” Alec placed his hands on either side of his face. “This is the best day of my life.”
Keela bit down on her lower lip. “What do you want me to do to them?”
His eyes welled up. “It’s finally happening.”
Bronagh covered her mouth with her hand when she couldn’t control the giggle that erupted from her. Alec’s attention zoned in on her and her mouth.
“You … you’re playing … aren’t you?” he whispered, legit tears falling from his eyes.
Keela laughed then, too.
“That was cruel, Aideen,” Alec whispered and wiped his tear stained cheeks. “So fucking cruel. Don’t ever talk to me again. I don’t like any of you anymore.”
