Silver (Date-A-Dragon Book 2)

Synopsis
Adrien is the Silver dragon. He hates humans, especially women. Before he was put to sleep, he was at the top of the food chain. Now, he is relegated to trying to find his mate among the throngs of women who are grabby and do not take no for an answer.

Kelsey has had a hard life, but seems to pick herself up time and time again. She has learned that depending on others means getting taken advantage of. So she tries to stay to herself as the best protection. That is why when Adrien comes to her rescue she is immediately suspicious.

Opinion
I admit that I was curious to read about the woman would succeed in thawing the heart of the Silver dragon. Adrien’s disdain for humans was so pronounced, that I figured that he would not meet his mate through a date. Citrine had the hardest time trying to get him to cooperate. Added to his disgust was the fact that women would be so aggressive because of his good looks.

He is so handsome, he must want to be touched. Right? Wrong. Consent is consent, no matter the gender.

Then Kelsey comes along, proving all of Adrien’s assumptions about humans wrong. As much as he hates humans, his mate might be one?

Coming to terms with that unleashes a charming side of the Silver dragon that no one thought existed. I was in love! When he put his mind to winning his mate, he took notes and made a plan of action. That first date ended with a bang!

This book is funny but highlights a societal issue that is very rarely discussed: homelessness among women. It is a real issue and I wish men like Silver were really out there to beat up the bad guys.

I am hoping that Citrine will be next but I think it will be Sever (Platinum). I am stoked either way.

Fire Lord’s Assistant #scfi #romance

Fire Lord’s Assistant

Synopsis
The Grotesquerie is a circus with alien performers. People think the acts are staged, not realizing that the aliens’ abilities allow them to do amazing feats. Kerr has an act as a Fire Lord, but in reality he is a dragon shifter.

Lauren is a government agent working undercover as Kerr’s assistant. She is part of the investigation to discover who is the real culprit behind a crime Kerr’s brother was arrested for committing. The crime was selling illegal alien technology and Kerr is determined to prove that his brother was innocent.

Opinion
Genre wise, I would consider this more of a short mystery instead of a romance. The romance piece was more about their physical attraction to one another. It seemed it was more lust than something that could blossom into love. Because the story was short, there wasn’t a lot of time to develop their relationship. They gave into their seeming attraction after a few stolen kisses.

Kerr had a mate before and I was not sure if he was really over her. He knew Lauren was his mate but he was persistent in fighting the attraction. That got old very quickly.

I gave the story extra points because the mystery aspect had me guessing right up until the moment the villain revealed himself. Even after he confessed, I was still unsure of his motives at first.

I also liked the fact that the aliens used a circus to be among humans, while not technically hiding their true nature.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
Borrow. The story was not anything exceptional, but it was entertaining.

When Time Stops: Dragon Shifter Surprise Pregnancy Romance

4heart

Synopsis
Aeon is a time dragon living in France. His brothers tricked him out of protecting the family’s lair and treasure for the year. He decides he will use the time to travel. At his first stop, he visits on of the family’s many night clubs. He meets Isobel and they have a one night stand.

Isobel is on her honeymoon vacation minus the groom. He left her at the altar. She is determined to have some fun. The hot and heavy attraction with Aeon fits the bill. After their night of fun, Isobel is kidnapped and made the prize in a dragon tournament.

Aeon usually avoids these tournaments because he thinks they are too barbaric for modern times, but he enters because he feels that he owes it to Isobel to win her freedom.

Opinion
This book brought the dragon heat early! From the moment they saw each other in the night club, I could feel the intensity of their connection radiate off the page.

Image result for girl got it goin on
I still don’t understand how a time dragon can bend time, but it worked for the story.
Isobel held her own despite everything her narcissistic mother, philandering fiance, and the whole kidnapping ordeal with a lot of horny dragons drooling over her.

Image result for you do you boo
All the dragon fighting brought a medieval vibe to the story even though it happened in modern era. Throughout the different challenges, nothing goes totally as expected. There were even a few plot twists that threw me for a loop.

Like WHAAA?

I am talking about things in addition to the surprise pregnancy. It is too cute when she tells him that she is pregnant. That makes me smile just thinking about it.

Alien General’s Wife #alieninvasion #romance #dragonshifter #BWWM

Alien General’s Wife

3heart

Synopsis
Indigo entered her name years ago in to a Draconian mating lottery to be mated with an alien dragon shifter. She was never matched, so she went to college and continued with her life.

Meanwhile a violent alien race called the Mulgor has invaded earth and killed a lot of people in the major US cities. Sadly after slaughtering her family, Indigo received notification that she has been matched with a Draconian mate. Having nothing left to lose, she goes to check in and be matched.

Vlosh is a high-ranking officer in the Draconian military and thinks that being matched with a mate is a waste of time. He has bigger problems, namely dealing with eradicating the Mulgor. However, once his dragon sees Indigo’s picture, there is a countdown to complete the mating or go insane. There are no other options.

Opinion
Once Indigo and Vlosh get together, their story was nice. I felt like Indigo experienced a lot of trauma leading up to their meeting. Afterwards, she seemed to be level-headed and made good sense decisions.

Reading the easy relationship she had with her parents was emotionally awkward considering the fact that I knew from the blurb that they would die soon. I tried to imagine they died painlessly, but doubt that was the case.

Image result for sad face meme

Indigo was a strong woman, which was what her husband needed since he was the general. There was a lot of pressure on her to mate because the entire military operation was under his command. If he went crazy, that would have been bad for everyone. When it came down to the actual mating, I did not feel that she felt forced to do something she did not want to do.

Image result for lets get it on meme

I could tell that Vlosh was a no-nonsense type of guy, but had enough wherewithal to concede to his mate when need be. Who cares about aesthetics? Saying that he was blunt would be an understatement. He saw no need to sugarcoat his words, but that did not mean he didn’t care. It is good that Indigo had a strong personality, otherwise I don’t think their relationship would be as successful.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. I liked Indigo and Vlosh individually and as a couple. Vlosh was a really considerate guy, even though he did not really think he had time for a relationship. Indigo had her stuff well enough together to be able to cope with tragedy and be open minded to entertain being an alien’s mate.

Terry Bolryder & Awakened #Dragon series #romance #shifters

You might have guessed that one of my favorite authors is Terry Bolryder. Well friends, she has a new series out called Awakened Dragon series.

Verdict is in: I love all of them!

4heart

It is hard for me to even sit still to write the review about each book because, I love them all. Every time I think about the stories, I want to reread the books. I am seriously addicted to these characters.

Image result for hes my crush meme

Opinion
Each dragon has his power that is not really understood by the rest because dragons used to be loners before they were put to sleep. Now in modern times, they have to stick together to fight a common enemy. They understand that the oracle knows best but they do not always approve of her methods. If they find their mates, they can have full access to their powers. It should be simple, but they did not count on the women having minds of their own.

These stories are fun and creative. I love dragon shifter romances and have enjoyed this series immensely. I think it is because they have personalities that are all various ranges of the amoral scale. It is not that they are bad, but they never really had to care about humanity. They did their own thing, benefiting from their status and power, but not completely understanding how to care to make a positive impact in the world.

Then they each meet their mate, and their world changes drastically.

I cannot wait to read Aegis’ (Emerald dragon) story.

Image result for i'm so excited meme

I think he might end up being the most complex of them all. I am dancing in expectation of reading his story. At the beginning of the series, I thought I hated him. But as more of his story is revealed, I realize that he is another conflicted hero in the making.
