The first half of the book kept me turning pages like a mad-woman. I loved the characters and their hang-ups were as original as their individual plights. Since I'm not an erotic reader, I will say that I was disappointed to see graphic sex within the first few chapters of the book. Consenting adults and all that, but I take my personal moral code with me where ever I go. Although the use of the "f-word" I don't like was sparing, the book would have been more enjoyable (for me) without it.
I love dragons. The spin Ms. Gold put on her dragons was new to me. I liked that they weren't carnivores and that their nature had a duality (with the dragon aspect becoming stronger as they aged). The "daddy" issues that both characters had served the story and character development arcs quite well. Although there wasn't really any dull spots, I did get bogged down on the island. Even in hindsight, I feel like most of what happened there didn't serve to further the overall story.
I predicted from the reading of the blurb how the story would end. It was the way it had to end, and it was a happy ending, so who's complaining? If you don't mind erotic scenes (and I could have been happier without the dominance-submission but can see how that was a part of the characters' personas), and like dragons and happy endings, you should pick up this book at your earliest opportunity.
I liked the 3D secondary characters and the effect they had on Elaina as well as what they revealed about their boss, Alex's, personality - James the driver, George (I hope you get a tall dark and handsome one, George! I loved loved the climax - how all the mysteries from early on were revealed. I often skip descriptions in narrative to get to the action, but the descriptions in this story all flowed so nicely, even when there was a lot of detail, that I didn't have the urge to jump ahead.
The relationship between Alex and Elaina was, in my opinion, perfect. Love is only part of it - committment, respect, friendship, trust... yep, that's key stuff right there. And that's where paranormal romance meets reality, because it doesn't really matter if you are a dragon and a billionaire - or just plain folks - real romance is about these core things. About romance...
Um... the romance was, well, Hot. Like it made little old lady married me blush. :) I usually read things that I would classify as more PG-13, but this novel would get an "R", I think. At least MY mental movie version of that story did!
Fans of Michelle Pillow, Cynthia Eden, and Harmony Raines will love this book.
