What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
On the outside, Ruby’s a normal college student.
On the inside?
She’s something else completely.
Magic runs through her veins, tempting her to use it, but Ruby isn’t sure how to control her new powers…until Ty, a dangerously handsome man from another world, spots her and identifies her as a witch. He offers some answers, but they come with a cost.
Not only does using her powers make her a target to others trying to steal her magic and slay her pet dragon, but each act of magic must be balanced—and magic takes whatever it wants.
Is all the chaos caused by casting a few spells to ruin her ex-boyfriend’s perfect skin worth it?
You’ll love this new adult urban fantasy series because it has everything you want to read about: magic, witches, dragons, romance, and a bit of good old-fashioned mischief.
Thoughts on Dragon’s are a Girl’s Best Friend
There is so much potential wrapped up in this narrative – a glimmer of an idea that could truly be phenomenal. A woman with witch blood, an invisible dragon, new life experiences and hidden realms. It’s all there!!!!
But it still stumbled a bit with its presentation, falling into the emotional angst any 18 year old is bound to feel…. especially when confronted with the mind altering situations Ruby is facing.
I get it, I do, but with such a set up – I wanted something more? Perhaps book 2 will offer that growth and actually flesh out the characters.
- Great potential!
- Not so sure about Ty….
- Felt flat and fell flat.
- The characters are uninteresting and underdeveloped.
- Ruby is more invested in her ex than her present situation.
- Doesn’t live up to the build up.
- Romance revelation felt forced and rushed.
First Person, Single POV
This has SOOO much potential, and while Book 1 falls flat, perhaps Book 2 will pick up the pace and find its footing. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
