Opinion
This is one of those books that I think I read just to fill my time.
The premise of the story was OK, but I think something about it just fell flat for me. There was nothing about the characters that made them stand out.

I do not usually mind when the stories are INSTAlove, but maybe I was tired and wanted something with more substance.

Plus, the book was so SHORT! I did not realize when I got it that it was only 40 pages.

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.
