Bliss Russo thought nothing exciting ever happened in her life. Until her building caught on fire and she had to be carried out of the flames in the arms of a gorgeous fireman. Sure, her apartment is now in shambles and she’ll have to start her huge work project completely from scratch. But at least her love life is finally looking up…if only she can find her red-hot rescuer again.

Dragon shapeshifter Drake Cameron is the last of his clan, and the loneliness is starting to claw at him. He’s met only one woman who might be able to stand the shock of his true nature. After all, she barely batted an eyelash when her home burned down. And feeling her curves against him was just as hot as the inferno. Just when he thinks he’ll never track her down, she walks into his firehouse—with no idea what she’s about to get herself into…

 

Review: Bliss is a woman that has a weird sense of humor and it shows in the cards she makes. She just keeps you laughing all the way through the book. Sometimes people get her humor and sometimes they don’t. This is what I like the most about her. She will always tell you what she is thinking and if you don’t like it, she really doesn’t care. I hate that everything bad seems to happen to her. Everywhere she lives ends up catching on fire and she has to move in with her parents every time. I can completely understand her not wanting to live at home. Sometimes her mom treats her like a child and others she is trying to get her married.

Drake is the fireman of every woman’s dreams. It’s hard for him to date because he is a dragon shape-shifter and that is usually too much for some women to take. The way the author describes him is just so sexy. I would love to see a man’s hair like that. I could sit and stare at it for days at a time. When he rescues Bliss from a fire at her apartment and he goes back in to save her laptop and gets suspended, you would think he wouldn’t want anything to do with her. He just can’t stop thinking about her and he needs to find her. What is sad for him is he finds a female shape-shifter who wants to have babies with him and is ready to kill anyone who is in her way.

The guy on the cover didn’t really go along with Drake’s image and he was a little scary to look at. Once I got passed that and just got into the book I didn’t care about that anymore. This book was funny and had suspense and hot sex with a dragon. There were some other paranormal beings in this book and you would never know about them being different. We even had gods in this book. So I really got my paranormal fix in. There were some characters that you just wanted to leave because they had major problems. When I meet Bliss’ brothers I just wanted to run away with her and tell her that I understood where she was coming from.

I liked the plot in the story and just lost myself in it. Before I knew it I had reached the last page and I couldn’t believe I had already finished the book. I would love to meet some of these characters in real life. I could see going to this bar and just hanging with them. With Bliss’ humor we could really have a blast. I wonder if there will be a revisit to some of these characters because I could really see a storyline for them in there and I would read it in a heartbeat. I will just say if you love paranormal books that have even going on, then this is the book for you. I will be going and hoping I never find some of the crazy women in here.
