Blaine (Dragon Elements #1)
I awakened my soulmate after a hundred years of imprisonment. It was love at first sight with Blaine. I knew he was the one when I freed him and his dragon brothers. The way I crave his touch is unlike anything I’ve ever wanted. Blaine makes me whole. But he’s got enemies that are after my life now. I saved him once. Now, he wouldn’t let anyone lay a finger on me. I’m his to protect… and his to claim. This is a steamy paranormal shifter fantasy romance series with a HEA and no cliffhangers. Fans of Terry Bolryder, T.S. Joyce, Candace Ayers, Zoe Chant and Harmony Raines will like this shifter series.

    This book had unrealistic dialogue and it just ruined it for me. It caused the whole book to feel even more unnatural and unrealistic. In addition, the relationship between the characters wasn't developed enough. 1.5 stars/

What she had inadvertently done was break the curse on the dragon brother imprisoned in the cave. The werewolves had used their magic to curse the brothers. When Blaine awoke, he smelt the blood of his mate. He found her and got to know her. Most of the bar was in love with her especially Sam's son, Jason. He took his affections a little too far! Can Blaine protect Gail from Sam? What happens when the wolves realize the dragons are awake? Can Blaine protect Gail from the wolves? Good story. Nice beginning to a series. Exciting courtship. Will Blaine convince Gail, she's his mate? I received an ARC from Booksprout for a review.

    I received an ARC edition of this book from the author.I think this is an interesting setup for a new story. There is a decent amount of world-building with the dragons and the wolves to help setup how the series will progress. The romance in this story relies very heavily on the fated-mate trope, but I thought it worked well with the characters. I liked that Gail had such a connection to the caves for so many years, it helped build the connection between her and Blaine.

It was interesting to see Blaine's brothers and I'll be interested to see each of them find their mates in the future. Already other factors about the spell that sealed them away is coming to light, so hopefully we'll see more of that magic in future books.

    Cursed Dragon, curious womanThere will be spoilers When Gail cut her hand she triggered the release of centuries old curse and released the dragons. Blaine knows she is his fated mate and sets out to win her affections. When an old enemy uses Gail to once again trap Villain and his brothers off seems all hope is lost. Great book. Wonderful plot.

    Good story but characters are one dimensionalWhile I enjoyed the story and would happily follow the storyline for all of the dragon brothers, I’ll unlikely do it. Characters are extremely one dimensional and the dialogue is stilted. In part, that’s due to the absence of normal conversational tone, using “you are” rather than “you’re,” for example. Certainly, someone who makes an effort to write a story deserves credit for their work. That’s only one part of the equation, however.

She hurts her had enough to draw blood the last time she is there. She goes home to take care of it, But something surprising happens because of that.
