Midnight (Nightmare Dragons Book 1

Synopsis
Nathan Lancaster. Elusive billionaire. World-wide philanthropist. Monster.

From the moment he was born, Nathan knew he couldn’t let anyone know who, or what, he was, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to make his way in the world. And he’s fine alone, seriously. Until a curvy, persistent reporter steps up and turns his whole world upside down. She’s lighting up all the corners of his darkness and endangering the secrets he has always held so dear. So why can’t he imagine ever letting her go?

When journalist Lillian Goss discovers that the world’s most eligible bachelor might be a criminal, she isn’t afraid to get the scoop at all costs. Unlike the rest of the world, she isn’t dazzled by Nathan’s easy smile, scorching blue gaze, or notable philanthropy. She’s determined to expose his dark side, until she manages to get up close and finds Nathan altogether different than she thought. He’s even willing to grant an exclusive, if Lillian is willing to walk into the shadows that surround his life and heart.

The more Lillian gets to know Nathan, the more complicated her feelings get for a man who’s much lonelier than anyone knows. Yes, he has secrets, but he also is braver, and kinder, than she ever imagined. But as attraction burns hot between them, and an unknown stalker enters the picture, one questions arises for Lillian above all… Where does Nathan go after Midnight?

Midnight is the first book in the Nightmare Dragons series. These books contain intense themes, some dramatic violence, and tortured shifter heroes who might just make some people afraid of the dark.

Opinion
When this was released I was so stoked that Terry Bolyryder had a new book !!!!

I got an advanced copy to read and I am giving an honest review.

First, let me say that this book is darker than any in her previous series. Nathan has a monster in him. He is the thing that nightmares are made of. At midnight, he is compelled to change into the monster and “feed”. Sounds ominous.

I didn’t know if I was going to be rooting for him or not. His sweet side won me over. Plus, he does all he can to help people.

Lillian is a journalist who is determined to find the dirt about Nathan. She was so sure that he is evil that she is doggedly persistent in trying to find out more about him so she can write the investigative story of her career.

Nathan is trying to balance dealing with the monster inside of him and his budding feelings for Lillian. I could understand why Nathan was not more forthcoming. He did not exactly have the most nurturing upbringing. There was no point of reference for him to know what was love or family or even happiness. I felt sad for him because he did not have any hope of his situation getting any better. He was so drawn to Lillian that he chose to love, knowing that he would eventually lose her once she knew his secret.

At the same time, Lillian is dealing with the fact that she is a woman who does not like keeping secrets, but she is hugely attracted to man who has this secret life after midnight! Even with all that, Lillian seemed to be too bitter for me. But considering her past, I made allowances for her behavior. I am glad that she gave Nathan a chance because he deserved to be loved.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?

#Review: Dazzled (Dragon Mates Book 1) #romance #whattoread #bookaddict

Dazzled (Dragon Mates Book 1)

Synopsis
Sebastian is a dragon shifter and art collector. He has been searching for the remainder of his treasure that was stolen from his family.

Lacey is lead curator for Sebastian’s art collection exhibit. She is aware of their chemistry and attraction but she does not want to act on it because she works for him.

Opinion
It seems the story begins in the middle of their romance. Sebastian and Lacey have been working together for some time. I don’t know how I feel about Sebastian being so flirty because I think that he was probably a borderline sexual harassment case waiting to happen.

It’s a good thing she was actually into him and playing hard to get. I won’t even begin to imagine would have happen had she NOT wanted a relationship with him. Hopefully, her “NO” would have meant no to him.

Other than that potential awkwardness, the story was your standard man-chases-woman-until-he-gets-her story. Their chemistry was good. Then a misunderstanding and a little subterfuge almost tears them apart. Sebastian realizes his mistake but it’s almost too late.

Despite the fact that they knew each other for a while, I still rate this as an insta-lust to love story.

Gold (Date-A-Dragon Book 1) #romance #whattoread #bookaddict #review

Gold (Date-A-Dragon Book 1)

Synopsis
Dante is the Gold dragon. He is collared and the oracle said the only way to fully access his powers is to mate a human. He has been trying to figure out how that is going to happen because he does not want to be mated. Then he meets Ella. After acting like a total jerk, he realizes he wants to do whatever he can to win her.

Ella just wants a fake fiancé. No romance. No touching. Nothing. Setting boundaries is about her controlling what happens to her. She has some secrets that she would rather leave untold. Plus, she has low self-esteem because of childhood bullying.

Opinion
I love Terry Bolryder’s dragon shifter books. She has them divided into categories. First, were the Awakened Dragons who were precious stones. Then the Rent-A-Dragon series who were metals. And now, we have the precious metal dragons in the Date-A-Dragon series!

Image result for excited meme

I am so surprised that Terry Bolryder has not run out of ideas!!! I have read so many of her books and they have such different plots. This one was no different. He seems to be like Diamond dragon (from the Awakened Dragon series) in a way because he is so arrogant. But then he has a little bit more concern for humans, though not by much.

I think Dante has to woo Ella more than other dragons with their mates because of her history. I felt sympathetic to her situation. She is strong in her own way, because she has found a way to cope in a bad situation. And then there were some unexpected twists. It made for a great story. I think this is my new favorite.

I CANNOT wait for the next books. I am hoping that Citrine will be next.

Kiss Of Fire (BBW Dragon Shifter Paranormal Romance): Dragon Shifter Romance 

2heart


Synopsis
Ross Cameron was cursed to become a dragon by a witch because he refused her sexual advances. Years, later, he is able to have the witch killed but the magic that turned him into a dragon remained.

When Arianna comes to his castle to do research about the legend of a dragon in the area, he falls for her. However, he does not know if she will stay once she learns his secrets.

Opinion
I thought the story was a little sad because of all that Ross suffered. He was basically a slave for hundreds of year. Some of the things that Ross was forced to do while under the witch’s spell were depressing.
I felt like they jumped into bed with each other too quickly and the whole story seemed choppy.

I was not sure how each detail flowed with the rest or if some of the characters mentioned were important to the plot.
Plus, I did not understand why the author had Arianna look so much like Ross’ dead girlfriend.

What was the point? 

As much as he protested (it was mentioned A LOT), I still think a part of him was attracted to her because she looked so much like his dead girlfriend.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BORROW. After reading, I did not finish this book with a satisfied feeling of happy-ever-after. I felt sad in a hope-they-make-it kind of way. If you like dragon shifter romances, you might like this because the storyline was different than many other from the same genre.

Review: Fire by Tiffany Flowers #dragonshifter #paranormalromance @Authortflowers

Title: Fire
Series: A Dragon’s Novel #1
Author: Tiffany Flowers
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Dragons are not supposed to exist. They are just fairy tale creatures in stories used to get children to sleep. Now faced with a living breathing Dragon, Jade Teal has no choice but to believe. And with this newfound knowledge, danger arrives at every turn.

Alex Sparks is the leader of the Drac Dragon Clan. He doesn’t want a mate, ever. Sent out on a rescue mission to save a human female, he comes face to face with someone that he did not expect. To protect her, his world will be set on fire.

~~~TOW Review~~~

4heartWhen Alex and Jade meet, Jade finds out that everything that she heard about the legends and stories she had been told as a child was true. If that was not mind blowing enough, she also finds out that Alex thinks she should be his mate.
I think that the author did a very good job of making Jade very realistic for the situation she was in. She could not understand if it was her body’s attraction to Alex that was drawing her to him or if they really had a connection to be together.
I loved this story so much that I could not put it down. I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride and all I could do was hold on as tightly as possible. I felt for both Jade and Alex because they had aspects of their personality which they deemed themselves unlovable.
In the end, they both have to come to terms with learning how to love themselves before they could recognize the truth about love they found in each other. It was so much more than a simple connection shared between the dragon and his mate.
TOW Opinion: Should you buy, borrow or pass?
BUY!!! You will not be disappointed. The story flows well with characters that come to life.

~~I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review~~
