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,” I murmured.
He glanced down at me. “Hmm?”
“Do you still think Matt Bomer is hot?”
He snorted. “Yeah, why?”
I shrugged. “I thought Keela might block out all the good looking dick holders of the world.”
Alec burst out into laughter, and even Kane – who was close to us – laughed.
“I’m not blind, darling, just too in love to notice anyone else.”
My heart melted.
“You’re strictly a female worshipper now?”
“I’m strictly a Keela worshipper now.”
I smiled. “When did you know you were bi?”
“I’ve always known.”
“I was never straight and I was never gay, I have always been bi-sexual. I just happened to have slept with more men than woman. I mean, it’s not like I flipped a switch and decided its dick o’clock for the next six hours then it’s pussy time. I liked who I liked, regardless of gender.”
Alec’s brothers laughed, but I was too into the conversation to crack a smile.
“And now?” I questioned.
“And now I don’t see anyone but Keela. No man, no woman, just her.”
I beamed. “That’s so sweet.”
Kane chortled. “Alec isn’t sweet.”
“I beg to differ,” I shot back. “He is very sweet.”
Alec pounded his closed fist against his chest. “Don’t hate, bro, embrace that your girl thinks I’m so… sweet.”
Kane tried to get up so he could hit Alec, but I held Kane in place with my legs and sprawled over the sweet human as I stopped the impending fight.
“Leave him be!” I shouted.
“He is referring to something sexual!”
I rolled my eyes. “How do you know that?”
“Because he is my brother and I know him.”
I leaned my head back and looked up to Alec. “Are you tryin’ to piss him off?”
Alec shrugged, a knowing grin playing on his lips. “I’m bored, baiting him amuses me.”
