#Review : Lead Dragon (Dragon Guard of Drakkaris) #dragonshifter #bookaddict #newrelease

Lead Dragon

Synopsis
Lead, captain of the dragon guard of Drakkaris, is about to embark on the most difficult mission he’s ever undertaken: trying not to fall in love with the cute, curvy woman he and his team saved and are now tasked with protecting.

Brittany didn’t expect six tall, ridiculously hot dragons to rescue her after she was captured by wolves. But there’s one dragon, with bright golden eyes, long brown hair and the composure of a warrior that she can’t seem to stop thinking about. And while she’s living just a few doors away from him, Brittany’s not sure her own self-control will be able to hold out.

Opinion
I have read all of the books in Terry’s series and I love the world she has created. I thought she ran out of dragon shifters but then she introduced an alien planet full of tall, hunky dragon men who are all looking for that special woman.

At the end of the last book, I felt sorry for Lead because he was a good man who moved out of the way for the sake of true love. Now he has his own book!!!

When Lead meets Brittney, he tries to keep his attraction under wrap so that he does not act on it. But his desire to claim his mate makes him irritable and confusing as he is sending mixed signals.

I know that Brittney was in an enviable position to have all these hot men at her beck and call. She was good not to play with their emotions though. It was funny that she projected her thoughts so “loudly” that the other dragons knew who she really wanted.

In the end, I liked the way they got together. They were a good fit for each other.

I CANNOT WAIT for the rest of the books in this series!!!!!!

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?

#Review : Silver (Date-A-Dragon Book 2) #romance #whattoread #bookaddict

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.

#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.

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.

Image result for annoyed meme

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.
