I enjoyed every minute of this book and finished it within a day. I look forward to the second installment.
Genre: Romance, Fantasy
Type: Series, can be stand alone but is part of the Brothers of Ash and Fire Series.
Recommendation: Meh, this was just OK for me. Not super entertaining but not unpleasant either.
Summary: +unique characters -mediocre alpha -cheesy dialogue +well written -weak antagonist
The first thing I noticed about Grigori is the cover. Not overly sexy, it feels understated and I really dig simplicity. The colors are awesome and the pictures are well put together. In combination with the blurb, I really had high hopes for this story and the fierce dragon shifter goodness it promises. Unfortunately, this was a little bit of a let down. It feels rushed, superficial and provides minimal details about what could have been a beautifully described world. It an attempt not to reveal any spoilers, I am not going to every single thing that kept me from loving Grigori and Madelyn but there are a few things I want to mention.
1.There wasn’t a strong alpha male factor with Grigori. Yes, he is rich, strong and determined to protect his family but his character wasn’t intimidating at all. There was no swoon factor for me. I like my alpha’s strong, sexy and able to handle whatever is thrown at them, not mediocre and unsure of themselves.
2. There wasn’t a whole lot of actual chemistry between mains. Madelyn and Grigori go through the motions and say all the right things but it didn’t translate into reality for me. I didn’t get attached to them at all and wasn’t invested in their relationship.
3. The antagonist is not complex, well-built or even remotely fear inducing. He came across like a jealous child wanting to steal someone’s toys. Plus, he was completely predictable.
4. The dialogue is pretty cheesy in certain parts, not to mention this whole “she smells of a virgin” thing kind of skeeved me out. The sex scenes are pretty well written but with the lack of chemistry I felt with both characters, I just couldn’t get into them.
I really do like the dragon theme and even though the ending was rushed and completely silly, I was able to finish the book in only a few hours. I won’t deny that I was entertained but this definitely won’t be a book I read again and I probably won’t read any other books in this series. All in all, I wouldn’t recommend this unless the aforementioned things don’t make or break it for you.
I obtained a free copy of this book and volunteered to give an honest review. Thank you NetGalley!
