New Release Review (ARC) - Never Deal with Dragons (DRACIM #1) by Lorenda Christensen @LorendaC

Never Deal with Dragons
by Lorenda Christensen

Goodreads blurb:  Consoling a sobbing dragon and serving pig buffets are just part of the job for Myrna Banks. Working for a mediation firm, it’s her job to get humans compensated for damages caused by the dragons who now rule. But her “typical” day is interrupted by Trian Chobardan, an old flame who sneaked out of her bed two years ago, taking her heart and a handful of classified documents with him.

Myrna would love to show Trian the door, but he’s been sent by North America’s reigning dragon lord for help negotiating a truce with a powerful rival to avert war. Myrna agrees to help, even though she’ll be stuck with Trian as a partner.

As the two work together, Myrna finds Trian to be surprisingly supportive—and still irresistibly attractive. Though her brain tells her not to forget his betrayal, her body feels differently. When they learn the enemy dragon lord is planning something no one could have imagined, Myrna has to learn who she can trust before she loses not only her heart, but her life. (84,000 words)

About the Author:  A native of Eastern Oklahoma, Lorenda lives with her husband and two sons in a house that feels far too small during the stay-inside winter months. Lorenda loves chocolate, hates snakes, and despite living two years in Bangalore next-door to a native preparer of Indian cuisine, cannot cook anything but ground beef. She is a recovering nail biter, and is currently celebrating five years bite-free.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it!
**Received ARC ebook from Carina Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

First, yes the cover is awesome and isn’t he just WOW and loving his tat :)

Okay, I really liked this book and think it sets up this new world fabulously.  There were a few slow pieces, but I usually expect it in the first book in a series.  The author’s writing style makes it easy to love the characters.  She also has a twist on dragons that I have never read before in their creation which is cool.  I think Myrna rocks because she is this five foot nothing woman who stands up to dragons what is not to love.  She is kind & caring, but will not be pushed around, and I love her integrity.  Then there is her ex-boyfriend Trian who brings all sorts of tension to the story.  There are all sorts of secrets, plots, drama, attacks, and so much more.  There are some things that I could see coming in this book, but there were also some things that came to light that I was holding my breath saying NO it can’t be!!  I love when authors surprise even if I don’t like the surprise (sigh), but you have to read it because I refuse to ruin this journey for you.  I can’t wait for the next book to see what happens next, and I secretly hope that Myrna & Trian continue to be the main characters because I love them.

I recommend this book to all my dragon lovers & paranormal fans because it was a great read, and you will enjoy it!
