Keela Daley is stressed out with nightmares and memories from her past, they are haunting her. She has no time to dwell on them as she is moving out of her dog box sized apartment and into her first house with her fiancé. Moving house is a dreaded task, and Keela would love nothing more than for things to go quietly and smoothly, but when you’re engaged to a Slater brother, nothing goes quietly or smoothly. Nothing.
Alec Slater loves his woman. He also loves playing games and surprising her. Picking moving day to do both, turns out to be a failure of epic proportions. Alec wants to make it up to Keela for his mistakes, but as the day goes on, and things go from bad to worse, he doesn’t know if living with him is something she wants anymore.
What started out as a simple day of packing and moving house turns into the day from Hell. Unwanted house guests. Business propositions. Alcohol. Pregnancy tests. Panic attacks. Fighting. Arguing. Sex, and everything else that is crazy and represents the name Slater. Keela has a choice to make, and not one she will make lightly.
Keela adores Alec, and what Keela adores, Keela cherishes.
Alec's lip quirked before he shook his head and looked down to the kitchen drawers. “Are you eating and then packing or packing then eating?”
Was that a serious question?
“Eatin' first... duh,” I replied.
Alec blew out an extra amount of air as he smiled. “Sit down then, I'll make you something.”
I shook my head. “Thanks for the offer, but I'm just goin' to have some yogurt and fruit.”
Alec raised an eyebrow. “Why?”
I deadpanned, “I've been talkin' the past week about dietin'.”
Did he listen to anything I say?
Alec glanced down at my body then back up to my head. “It's working, you look great.”
He was so full of it.
“Oh, bite me!” I grunted. “I haven't lost any weight yet, you lick arse. Stop lookin' to get some extra points with your silly compliments.”
Alec grinned. “I'm not fishin' for points, I was just pointing out that you look great. Even if you lose a little bit of weight you will still look great. What does that tell you?” he asked.
I shrugged my shoulders. “That you're a chubby chaser?”
Alec laughed. “No, smartass. It means you look great as is. Nothing you do can improve how beautiful you are, Kitten. You're naturally stunning.”
I stared at Alec and snorted.
“I'm not having sex with you today.”
“You say that everyday and guess what? We still have sex everyday... twice yesterday if I recall, three times if you include last night.”
“I get it,” I growled. “I have a weakness for your cock. No need to rub it in me face.”
“There is always a need to rub my cock in your face.”
4 Reality Check Stars
Keela is book
#2.5 in the Slater Brothers Series, I was lucky enough to be gifted a copy of
this book in exchange for an honest review.
Here is a link to the reading order for the Slater Brothers series so far and my reviews.
I adore Alec and I
miss him in this book, it truly is the Keela show and Alec is just ripped and
beautiful background scenery.
I actually love
that Keela has doubts; it’s normal and real and made he so much more relatable.
This family are
hilarious and even though it was the most serious of the books in the series so
far there was still enough of the banter and hijinks that make this series
I love this whole
family and I’m so looking forward to the next books in the series.
Alec and Keela
are obviously destined to be together but their relationship has flaws. I did have a small moment of panic over Keela
but I’m so glad it all worked out in the end.
I love it when
all of the girls conspire and play with the boys.
Both books Alec
and Keela feel like they have dragged this series a few steps closer to the
dark side and I kind of love it but I really hope the future books don’t lose
the sense of joviality and family.
This novella is short
but ultimately sweet.
Keela gets 4
stars from me.

As the title of my blog gives away I read a lot!!! I love the escapism of a good book and sometimes I even enjoy the release I get from moaning about a rubbish book.
Im not sure anyone will ever read my reviews but I'm going to do them anyway.... sometimes I read so much and so quickly that I can completely forget what ive read or the reasons I loved them so this way I can gain a little perspective.
I have a facebook page and I would love it if anyone who reads any of my reviews pops over to FB and gives me a quick like.
Also im constantly looking for recommendations so if you've read something you think I would enjoy please comment and let me know.
