YOU FLIRT WITH FIRE...For Aoife Dakar, seeing is believing-and she's seen some extraordinary things. It's too bad no one else believes that she witnessed a supernatural murder at an outdoor fair. Returning to the scene for proof, Aoife encounters a wise-cracking demon dog-and a gloriously naked man who can shift into a dragon and kiss like a god. Now thrust into a fantastical world that's both exhilarating and terrifying, Aoife is about to learn just how hot a dragon's fire burns.
WHEN YOU DATE A DRAGON...Kostya has no time for a human woman with endless questions, no matter how gorgeous or tempting she is. He must break the curse that has splintered the dragon clans before more of his kind die. But his powerful attraction to Aoife runs much deeper than the physical-and there may be more to her than even his sharp dragon eyes can see. To survive the coming battle for the fate of his race, he needs a mate of true heart and soul . . .
At A Glance
Started out great, then bleh.
Dragonshifters!!!! I loved how Dragon Fall started. Aoife witnesses a dragonshifter fight and possible murder. So she does what any sane person would, she calls the cops. Then gets thrown in the loony bin for her trouble. For TWO YEARS! Man, I would be pissed! When she gets out, all she wants to do is live a normal life, except the damn dragons show up again!
I really felt bad for Aoife. It’s so not fair all the crap she goes through. She gets dragged into dragonshifter politics and a world she never knew existed. She handles everything pretty well though. Aoife was a fun, goofy character that helped me follow the story easily. Kostya was accidentally hilarious because he didn’t understand a lot of human phrases or customs so it made for a good time. He had his endearing moments.
Despite the few smiles this book gave me, it was really hard for me to finish. It was slow in a lot of parts and the plot dragged on and on. Aoife had this odd way of cussing with silly phrases and it irritated the crap out of me. I mean, I want to bang my head against the wall kind of irritated. It just didn’t feel natural.
Aoife and Kostya were tolerable sometimes, but for the most part I couldn’t stand them. Aoife was too childish and Kostya was like watching white paint dry. They had no chemistry and I didn’t want to root for them as a couple at all.
The ending was completely open-ended. The couple gets a wrap-up but the story gets no conclusion at all. I turned the last page and thought, “What was the point to all that shit?”
I didn’t even care about the sex. I know, I know, shocking.
It was not for me. I only gave it 2 stars because I would say the first quarter was pretty entertaining. But it went downhill from there. Not recommended.
