Summary

Ilias is the youngest of the dragons and is fed up with being treated like a child. He seems to get sicker by the day and knows he must find his mate. When fate crosses their paths, she’s neither trilled nor trusting. But when she gets kidnapped, Ilias must prove to her that they belong together.

Andrea thinks a trip home will allow her to escape all of her problems. She couldn’t be more wrong. In a matter of weeks, she gets attacked by a troll and kidnapped by a psycho dragon. Battling a drug addiction and depression - there’s only so much she can take before she breaks.

Will Ilias be able to save her, or will she run herself into the ground?

Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, and piles of sexy shifters. Intended for mature audiences only.

Paranormal romance with some substance

Sarah J Stone has an interesting style. This is the shorter book but she somehow manages to touch on serious topics, in this case drug addiction and abuse, without compromising the romantic and sexy aspects of the story. She manages to write paranormal romances with substance.

That said, the two protagonists are young and that is evident in their interaction and the choices they make. To be honest they are a little younger than I normally enjoy reading but I still liked the story and look forward to the remainder of the series. In the larger picture of the series, the dragons are shifting from being a group of directionless, damanged bachelors to becoming a family and clan. I am sure as they become more cohesive, there will be more opportunities to address their personal issues and their enemies.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Enjoyable

Ilias follows on from the first book, these should probably be read in order, there are major spoilers for book one and I think you need to have read book one for this book to make sense.

I wasn't really sure about this series after book one, i was hoping that it would develop more in the second book but that didn't happen for me. It was enjoyable but it wasn't gripping.

The main relationship between Ilias and Andrea is a bit dysfunctional, they're both trying to protect themselves and test the other person and they just never seemed to mesh for me, it left me thinking that they aren't suited. They seemed to go from "I'm not sure about you even though we are 'fated'" to "OMG I love you" in the space of a chapter.

I like the concept, I'm just not sold on the execution.

The narrator did a good job, i liked the character voices and the overall delivery was good.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Another great dragon story

This is another great addition to the series of dragon shifters. This time, it’s about Aris’ younger brother who hates being treated like a kid. He needs a mate and a cure, too. So, Ilias goes away and gets hit by a car of the woman he’d never thought he’d fallen in love with.

Ilias and Andrea

Ilias and Andrea are great together. Even though Andrea is going through so much like her depression and drug addiction, she tries to get over it and Ilias could be one of her reason to stay sober. I love this story.
