A lot of personality fit into a short book

Dakota is a witch, looking for her mate on the MatchMater app – she hooks up with Achilles the dragon shifter and both of them realise that they may have met their true mates, despite their commitment issues and reservations.

It’s a great premise with two strong characters – a woman who isn’t afraid to go after what she wants and a man who’d rather make sacrifices in the short term to avoid heartbreak further down the line. I love this story for its happily ever after and the idea of a supernatural Tinder. There’s a lot of personality fit into a short book and it speaks highly of the author ability as a writer.

Hannah Somerville was the perfect fit for this book as the narrator, her voice brought the characters to life and really sounded the way I would imagine Dakota to be, in my head. She elevates the entire story to something even more enjoyable and I’m already cracking into the next book in the series to hear where she takes it!

Lighthearted and Sweet

I really like the idea of this series. I think it’s kind of unique for shifters to have their own dating app, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this before. This book had humor and was sweet and lighthearted. Dakota and Achilles meet through the app and they have to decide if they want to accept the mate bond or not. Achilles’ grandmother was my favorite character and I loved her personality.
Hannah did a great job with this narration. I liked that she really brought Dakota’s personality to life and felt like a great fit. I’ll be looking for more of her narrations in the future!

Disappointed

Hard to listen to as the narrator goes to fast. Story and characters lacked depth.

Reluctant Dragon Mate

Finding your mate through an online dating service is definitely a new plot for me and I have to say I enjoyed it very much. I am looking forward to more in this series.

Dragon's treasure

I loved this book, it was an entertaining short read, full of romance, heartbreak and happy ending. Dakota and her familiar were both fun to read about, Achilles was frustrating and his grandmother a hoot! I will definitely be following this series, and can't wait to see who gets matched next!

Trusting fate

A dating app from supernaturals. When finding your true mate is the only lasting connection you can make it makes dating hard. Dakota wants a little fun and is using a dating app to make it happen. After her night with a dragon shifter she can’t get him out of her head. The Reluctant dragon mate is about believing in love and taking a risk.

I’ve listened to a few books narrated by Hannah Somerville. She has a quick speaking, clear voice and good vocal range.

This is a quick read with a couple to root for.

ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Cute little novella

Really cute little novella, I love the idea of having a dating app, it gave it a PNR/contemporary feel, but it could have done with a bit more conflict for me really

A swipe towards love

Dakota swipes right on Achilles on a dating app they hit it off but the feelings they have for each other are more they have found their mates in each other. Reluctant because of past hurts and a prediction made makes them reluctant to accept the fact. Their attraction keeps them coming back to each other and to that HEA.

Fun, Sexy, and Witty

This is a hilarious story about Dakota and Achilles, a witch and a dragon shifter. They both have been trying to use MatchMater to possibly find their mates. Achilles is terrified to find his mate, but Dakota is excited and trying to find hers. They are matched one night, and they both make a crazy choice to meet up. The rest of the story focuses on the mayhem and the stubbornness that ensues after.

This is another fun story from Laura Greenwood! She is a great writer! Hannah Somerville is a great narrator who kept me involved! I would definitely listen to another story narrated by Hannah Somerville!

Reluctant Dragon Mate

After a hook up from a supernatural dating app. They must come to terms with the fact that they are mates even though they are different supernaturals

Paranormal Dating Fun

I love the idea of a paranormal dating app. It makes for such a fun addition to the Paranormal Council Universe, which I always enjoy coming back to. I love the characters and their reactions when they realized who their one night stand was.

Hannah Somerville was a great narrator and was pleasant to listen to.

SO good

Dakota'she swipes yes to a dragon shifter on MatchMater the one and only app for Supes, then finds out the Dragon is her mate lol. Achilles doesn't want to be a mate to his one night stand. Now he has to make the next step if he wants his mate to be his. BTW I loved little Rhi.

Will they or won't they

When supernaturals of two different species meet, will they mate in spite of a risk of forsaking their true mates? Would they recognize a mate if it fell in their lap?

This was a pretty quick little story and was enjoyable.
