Can a dragon shifter give more than just hot sex?

After Brent’s New Year’s fling with his friends Fletcher and Tor—and Tor’s mate Louisa—Brent is determined to find his own mate. His dragon wants him to find their mate, too, and if Brent doesn’t find a way to locate her soon, his dragon will take matters into his own talons. And that could spell trouble.

Wolf shifter Carissa has no desire to live up to her wild musician mother and artistic father’s vision of free love and sex parties. She’s buried her sexual desires and focused on building up her aromatherapy store, Scentify, no distractions allowed. Until she meets Brent. The sexy dragon shifter makes her burn with suppressed need. The only problem? His dragon wants Carissa, too. And pursuing the dominant dragon would be playing with fire.

Giving in to his dragon saps Brent of his focus and energy. Things are turning ugly—dragon ugly. How can he bond with his mate when his dragon only wants sex?

A dragon and a wolf walk into a bar… sounds like the start to a great paranormal joke but it’s a great plot for this book. I loved the idea of a town for paranormals where they can be safe to be who they really are.

I loved Brent, the dragon shifter. He’s compassionate, sexy and ready and willing to do anything for his mate, even wait to mate her, even if waiting is killing him.

Carissa is a wolf shifter, who is definitely a lone wolf when it comes to her life. All she has time for her is her shop, Scentify, and building it up. So watching her be thrown off track by her instant attraction to Brent was highly entertaining.

Brent and Carissa are meant for each other and the chemistry is off the charts. Brent brings out all the crazy repressed sexual feelings that Carissa has been hiding for so long. There is even a scene with one of Brent’s friends that is very sexy and worked for the story.

I definitely recommend this story for fans of unique shifter stories that are definitely on high end of the sex-o-meter.

    I don’t normally like shifter books but this review has me wanting to give this book a chance!

  2. I am definitely adding this one to my TBR! Shifters are my favorite type of PNRs. 🙂
    The mate angle gets me every time.
    Great review, Lisianthus!
