~ Under the Covers
I have had a soft soft for Ms. MacAlister dragon’s ever since I picked up You Slay Me years ago. I can’t say I’ve followed along ALL the spin offs but I have read quite a few of them. This is now the Black Dragons and someone that if you’ve read the previous you are familiar with. Kostya.
I’m not usually the biggest fan of the main characters in these stories, they’re always ok to bring the story forward but not ones I’ll fall for in the long run. Aoife and Kostya have an instant attraction and although their romance was fun, I think the connection wasn’t quite as developed, relying more on the mate bond. Which is fine for me as well in my paranormal romance books.
If you haven’t read any books in the collection of dragons by Ms. MacAlister just know that each books stands alone quite well, although since there are cameos you will enjoy seeing them or appreciate them more if you follow along with the collection. You can expect them to be filled with stubborn dragon males and fiery heroines, kick ass sidekicks, and facing over the top scenarios. But most importantly they will make you laugh!
A big part of my enjoyment in these books comes from the sidekicks. In this case we get to see Jim, the demon dog, again. I’ve said this before but I would buy a book of simply Jim quotes. He’s amazing!!! I cannot tell you how much I love Jim’s character, he’s a breath of fresh air and always has the best lines! This book wouldn’t have been the same without him.
The formula works out almost the same so I like that I know what I’m getting into when I pick one of these up. They’re set usually somewhere in Europe, there’s dragons fighting, and somehow the heroine always ends up being a key player in their storylines. I will be looking out for the next book in the series for sure!

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
