The Dragon’s Lover by Emilia Hartley #review #dragons #paranormal
Posted by brriske
She already had a mate… why couldn’t she take her eyes off this man?
Perhaps the mate bond didn’t affect her as it did her aunt. At least, that’s what she figured when the life long passion she was promised, suddenly fizzled out a few months after the bond formed. Maybe she was broken? She didn’t know. Nonetheless, she was mated, why did this dragon man intrigue her so much?
When he first spotted Quinn, Isaac knew something was strange. He could tell by the hunger in her eyes that she wanted him as badly as he wanted her. But no matter how much his dragon begged, he couldn’t have her. He wouldn’t dare fiddle with her existing mate bond. No self-respecting dragon would. But he couldn’t just let this woman steal his heart, could he?
This is book 2 in the Elemental Dragons series. A spin off of Emilia’s Fated Dragons series, however it can be read as a standalone.
Warning: This series contains lots of sexy shifter action, irresistible mates and steamy love scenes. Tons of mouth watering Paranormal Romance bonus content included!
Book 2 of the Elemental Dragon’s series. Human Quinn wants to assist her dragon family find a new place to live where they will be safe from the GEO. She and her believed mate Kenji seek the assistance of the American Territories dragons where she meets Isaac. She’s always questioned her bond with Kenji and now she knows what a real mating bond feels like. In efforts to help save some captured dragons from GEO, Isaac and Quinn team up. This strengthens their bond and shows them that they truly were fated. The good; I liked both these main characters, they were interesting and complex. The scenes at the bar and while they were hiding from her pack looking for them I felt were descriptive and interesting. Same with the fight scenes. The frustrating; this book left me with a lot of questions of “why?”. Possibly because it is book 2 in the series and I’ve not read the first. The preview stated it could be read as a stand-alone, but not well. Second, (spoiler alert) I felt that the mission to save the other dragons was pointless. I never completely understood why it was so important to Quinn to save them and when they find them, sadly Ruby ends up killed and Casper deceived them, so again I found it a somewhat anticlimactic. What’s the point of being hero’s if you don’t have a hero event. I also thought, that if Isaac’s element is electricity and the storms search for him, why couldn’t he use the electricity in the storms? it didn’t have to be bad. Finally, I felt like complete conversations or sub-stories of the book were completely glanced over. Like how did we jump to Quinn going under cover. Hopefully that’ll be explained in the next story. I rate this story 3..5 Hearts.
