Not His Dragon turn out to be a comedy at times, emotional at others, but also an interesting story with a few unanswered questions.

When a crazy lady with the scent runs into Eoin Grant, he immediately thinks a dragon shifting couple have moved in on the territory he claims as his own. See female dragon shifters are rare that they are mated almost as soon as they are old enough. Right away, Eoin is on guard and yelling at the crazy lady only to have her pepper spray him in the face, the one thing dragons have no good defense against.

Angie Weldon is finally putting her long, unexplained nails to good use in a scratching business for shifters. The wolf shifters especially love her and have taken her in for protection. Maybe if she works hard, she will hit green instead of red and all her troubles will be memories. But there are a few problems she can’t seem to get past, like the alpha wolf she used to date, doesn’t want to let her go and her receptionist thinks she is helping with luck charms.

Eoin isn’t going to let Angie go, but when he finds out she isn’t mated and doesn’t know she is a dragon he hires her for a job only a dragon can do, thus keeping her nearby for a week. Eoin now must court the only female dragon he knows unmated, figure out what’s causing her to not know her dragon side and teacher the history of his kind….all while trying to make a better impression than the first one.

I really liked these characters! Eoin is a grumpy recluse that creates art that is only selling because he is a dragon. He just wants to paint and be left alone, but now he has to figure out how to put more emotion into his paintings. Only when he goes into a rage, he creates a metal mass that his curator loves! He isn’t a sculpture, and it doesn’t bring him joy.

Angie comes in the middle of all this and their talks often bring logic where Eoin only feels. Angie for her part doesn’t believe she is a dragon and she’s a strong female. Her “parents” were killed in a crash, leaving Angie with no one to love or answers to why she has some weird quirks. As Eoin starts to unravel her story, she relies on her inner strength to figure things out.

Honestly, at first I wasn’t so sure this was going to work, but the author took characters so flawed and dug deep to show that maybe they aren’t as flawed as we think. With an unmated dragon around, it does draw some interest and so the book becomes fast paced to find a resolution to all the problems. An interesting look into dragon romance.

I loved stepping out of my comfort zone and getting a little comedy out of it.

I am not a huge fan of dragon stories, but I found this one to be a cute, but also interesting romance.

I started chuckling when you mentioned the pepper spray and the courting. This sounds fun. Thanks for introducing it to me. 🙂

This sounds good, at first I thought Shair’s is reviewing an MG book? But then I realized the silhouette was of a women not a girl. I do love dragons and I am glad the author dug deep and made this work 🙂

It is definitely an adult romance, lol. I haven’t read many dragon shifter books, but I really like this one.
