I Married a Dragon (Para-mates)

3heart

Synopsis
Chrissy Taylor doesn’t believe in a lot of things. Her life, and her career as a supernatural myth-buster, are ruled by logic and skepticism. Love at first sight? Forget it—until she’s swept off her feet by Mr. Tall, Dark and Mysterious.

The next thing she knows, she’s done the most illogical thing imaginable: run off to Vegas for a quickie marriage. And Mr. TD&M’s insatiable hunger for her body is starting to feel suspiciously like an attempt to make her the one thing she fears most. Pregnant.

Even though Kaine sets Chrissy’s world on fire—literally—she can’t resist embarking on her toughest debunking mission yet. She must unearth the truth about her new husband before desire consumes the last of her reason.

Kaine Delcaluca is withholding the fact that he’s a dragon, but time is of the essence. He desperately needs an heir to save his dynasty. Plus, he has an even bigger problem. The Scepter of Fire, the only weapon powerful enough to kill a dragon, has gone missing. If he fails to find it—and knock up his new bride—within the next few days, his people are doomed…

Warning: Sizzles with graphic language, set-the-sheets-on-fire sex, and snarky personal assistant machines.

Opinion
The pace of the story was so fast. Chrissy meets Kaine and it is love at first sight. After meeting him and learning his name, it seems that they run off to Vegas to get married.

Chrissy and Kaine’s whirlwind romance meant that they did not discuss any of the important topics that could be deal breakers. A few days into their honeymoon, Kaine is telling her that he is trying to get her pregnant.

In Kaine’s defense, he did try to tell Chrissy some things but she thought he was not being serious.

The story was told from the POV of Chrissy. She was mildly annoying to me. I thought that Chrissy could have taken to heart the adage “curiosity killed the cat” because she got herself into some sticky situations because she was too inquisitive and impulsive. It is okay to ask questions but think before leaping!

As a side point, I keep saying that I don’t prefer first POV, but it seems authors love writing in that style. I wish that they would say in the blurb so that I could mentally prepare myself ahead of time.

Overall, it was a mostly fun story and everything gets resolved.

The Best Man for a reason

The Best Man ♥♥♥

Synopsis

Colin is a trouble making best man at his brother’s wedding. Usually the epitome of a quiet English gentleman, the reason for his out-of-character behavior is that he was once dating the bride. She dumped him for his brother, but in a crazy, dysfunctional way, he was guilted into not only being in the wedding but being the best man.

Beth is a wedding planner with her personal goal to be named partner in the business. She needs for the wedding to go on without a hitch. In this case, it means dealing with Colin’s antics so that he does not ruin his brother’s big day.

Opinion

The story premise was original enough. However, Colin fell in love too quickly for me.

Even with that, I thought Colin was such a sweet cutie with a sense of humor. He was too nice and let his family railroad him when they should have been more understanding. For that one point on its own, he deserved a happy ending.

In the beginning I agreed with Beth when she questioned the relationship. But after a while, I started to get annoyed. Since falling in love did not fit into her plan, she keeps trying to minimize what Colin and she have. Beth was, at times, a grumpy killjoy when it came to love, and then would be despondent that she might be missing out on something.

Overall, the story was cute. I liked Colin and he deserved all the hugs and kisses. But this is how I felt about Beth.

Should you buy? Yea it was cute enough to have in your Kindle collection. This is one of those light romances with a feel good hero.

This is who I imagine will play Colin in the movie version of this book.
