Dragon's Lair

Dragon's Lair➥ [Epub] ➟ Dragon's Lair By Chantal Fernando ➯ – Oaklandjobs.co.uk The first in a new sexy romance series from bestselling author Chantal Fernando about the bad boys of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and the women who fall in love with them When I found my boyfrien The first in a new sexy romance series from bestselling author Chantal Fernando about the bad boys of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and the women who fall in love with them When I found my boyfriend cheating on me I did something stupid Or should I say someone Because of that mistake I’m now stuck in a world I don’t belong in I’m a law student They’re criminals He’s the vice president of a motorcycle club I’m a good girl with a strict upbringing He’s my ex boyfriend’s brother And I’m screwed. I'm going to do a lot of uoting here my friends because I want to use specific lines as evidence for my feelings There were some things that disappointed me greatly about this story but there was that I truly enjoyedAs far as an MC books goes this was somewhat sub par What initially caught my eye was the blurbWhen I found my boyfriend cheating on me I did something stupidOr should I say someone?Because of that mistake I’m now stuck in a world I don’t belong inI’m a law student They’re criminalsHe’s the Vice President of a MC I’m a good girl with a strict upbringingHe’s my ex boyfriend’s brotherAnd I’m screwed Sounds awesome right? And since I'm all about a worthless epic grovel and a kick ass take that revenge I thought I'd love this book Plus I do love a good MC book but I literally feel nauseous having to read about complete misogynists disrespecting women and treating them as lower beings with convenient holes You can be a badass without hitting cheating name calling etc Even so there's a fine line to ride there especially when the men around you are looking at you for guidance You can't look weak and from my standpoint I don't want a man who will let me push him around eitherIt's called compromise peopleSo the fact that this was touted as an MC light book really caught my attention seeing as how I've recently discovered the awesomeness that is Susan Fanetti's Signal Bend series I was ALL IN for this readIt started out okay The writing itself feels a tiny bit choppy and just didn't feel polished It was when I got to the first sex scene that I was greatly disappointed To put it mildly the sex in this book is lame Lame and boring and over so fast I thought I had missed a page or three If you're gonna write a biker book please work on your sensuality and sex Make it rough make it gentle just make it something other than this His eyes darken Leaning over me he gently pushes me back on the bed He kisses my lips with no preamble his tongue exploring my mouth He knows what he's doing just how to turn me on I moan into his mouth as his finger slides into me He makes a sound deep in his throat a growling sound I'm than ready for him as he slides himself into me with one smooth thrust His patience clearly over he thrusts deeply a curse leaving his lips His body shows me just how much I've been missing out on his skilled moves giving me pleasure than I've ever experienced before I come once twice before he finishes himself He kisses me on my forehead once before he pulls outThat's the revenge fck That's it WHAT? And then this line same page that had me head scratchingLast night had me feeling off kilter Did I imagine the connection between us? Last night wasn't fucking It was meant to be but it didn't feel like it I don't know what to thinkMe neither sweetheart I'm a bit lost at this point and ready to DNF this bookHOWEVER I stuck with it and I'm so glad that I did Once I suspended my need for whatever it was that I failed to get I got some big surprises in the form of laugh out loud one liners from our heroine Faye and hero Dex Over and over I giggled and laughed and I slowly got sucked into their world and the MC boys camaraderie with Faye A few examples♦♦♦ You got revenge on my brother isn't that what you wanted? A taste of wild?And what did you get Dex? I ask tilting my head to the sideHe grins wolfishly I got to fuck a fairy♦♦♦ Condoms aren't a hundred percent you know he reminds me calmly My mind flashes to a certain episode of Friends and I suddenly feel like yelling out that they should put that on the outside of the box♦♦♦ Now he laughs at meDon't laugh Since I apparently got pregnant on purpose to keep you because you know you're such a catch At least you come with a credit card though I jokeI watch as his smile drops from his face What did you say?I blink I don't remember♦♦♦ I'd rather you call me fairy than baby mamaBaby mama it is he says♦♦♦ Fifty Shades of RakeCracked me the hell up If there's one thing I loved about this book it's the humor I also loved how Faye flat out just held her own while in the clubhouse She was a mouthy little thing and thank goodness that she was under Dex' protection and that she endeared herself to the other boys There were a few other things that kept my rating down Some pretty noticeable editing issues a lack of atmosphere and details of the characters and setting minor things that bugged me The setting was in Australia which is really cool for a change up but the only way I knew that fact is because she mentions Melbourne and because she says things like holiday and petrol and vegemite What the hell is the deal with vegemite? And check it outit's made by Kraft That just strikes me as funny When will the rest of the world catch up with Australia and stock this shit? Minus one star for those and one for the lack of decent sex and I'm left with three stars Would I read the next in the series? You bet I did enjoy this book and I think if readers go into it expecting a fairly tame contemporary with some sweet bikers that occasionally act edgy and mean then they'll really enjoy this One uote because I want to leave this review on a high note D♦♦♦ There is no what happens on the road stays on the road with us I let my expression tell him how serious I am about thisHave you been watching Sons of Anarchy again? he asks Third re read 15082019 It's still uite good and interesting I recommend it to everyone who like a woman who doesn't take shit is smart and witty and a hot sexy guy who protects what is his I'm glad I re read this one again It's fun and I love the chosen family ⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱Still awesome⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱ Second re read 15012018 Anyone who hasn't read this book seriously needs to do that Even after reading this for the third time I still adore it Love it even though it's not perfect; hench the stars Dexter ‘Dex’ ‘Sin’ Black 28 is hot as fuck and Faye ‘Fairy’ Connor 23 is a absolutely perfect female character She's funny sassy independent and strong I love her She still reminds me of Taryn from Feral Sins which is still a damn good complement as she is one of the best characters in the world Overall I'm looking forward to re read this one again in the future Though I'm not sure why I still haven't read any other book in the series Perhaps it's because it reminds me of Feral Sins that I can't make myself continue as I hated book #2 in that series Dexter Black doesn’t know it yet but one day he’s going to be mine uick basic factsGenre New AdultAdult?

You have no need to be scared or wary around me babe Faye has had a crush on Dex for years but she never thought she stood a chance with him Now when the opportunity presents itself and Dex makes it clear he's interested in her as well she starts to hope that maybe there might be a future in store for them after all Still Dex has a few secrets of his own and his position as the vice president of the Wind Dragons MC doesn't exactly make it easy for him to tie himself down When I come to you I need to know that I can give you everything you deserve Faye was a very sassy independent heroine with a uirky side and I really liked the fact that she didn't let herself be pulled down by all the misfortune she had in her life Dex was supposed to be this big scary biker but he's actually really sweet and I loved how he took care of Faye and protected her when she needed him The only problem I had with the story was that it felt a bit rushed at times There was a little too much going on at the same time view spoilerbaby mama drama cheating ex hard to get rid of ex wife violence and war with a rival MC Dex having to go to prison trouble with her parents Jim and Mary dying hide spoiler SONS OF ANARCHY MADE ME DO IT So I totally blame all the awfulness of this book on the Sons not really Charlie Hunnam is always ❤️ Read exactly like fanfiction except not as good or as fun Or as sexy or as anything reallySo despite not being a mental illness book there are at least five personalities inside this one MC The inconsistency is just too staggering to dissect Suffice it to say that her character is as believable as me conversing in German Yeah since I don’t speak any German But you get the pictureI can’t take this book seriously I just cannotThe romance is weird at best Everything else is just not believable at all perpetually shaking my headPS I MISS JAX TELLER 375 Stars image error NICE NEW COVER REVEAL I lost everything in one night Over one mistake 475 Sin stars♡♥After finding her long time boyfriend in bed with another woman it's only right to get even right?One night One night of passion changes everythingNow whisked away from her clean and pristine life dreams of becoming a lawyer seem far awayEspecially when you're involved with the VP of the Wind Dragons the brother of your ex and your secret crush for many yearsWhat's a girl to do? Especially when new challenges arise old flames present themselves limits are tested and trouble is brewing between rival MC's? My thoughts Huh what a different twist for an MC read It was still a bit gritty rough tragic and sexy and yet I found myself feeling light and cracking up with the female heroine Faye She was a totally different breed of a strong empowered woman and actually had backbone and not in the annoying type of wayI thought that her chemistry with Dex “Sin” was uite on even ground as both have known each other since childhood and are stubborn passionate individuals On a side note though brace yourselves for some heartbreak I was so sad when a certain event took place that I was contemplating grabbing a pitchfork and hunting down the author for writing such an event in the storyI really hope Ms Fernando does make this MC a series as I would really LOVE an Arrow book and then a Tracker x Allie book as well as Rake and Vinnie And oh Can we have an Eric x Renee clarification or something? I know that Eric isn't part of the Wind Dragons MC but I'm so curious as to know what their deal isGosh I am so so excited I'm already hooked on these characters and am in love with the “Daye”pairing I hope to see from them I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review Thank you SO MUCH Ticked all the right boxes for meI have to say that I loved this book I knew from the blurb that something had to be seriously wrong for me not to enjoy this I've previously read 'Maybe This Time' by this author and I enjoyed that so it wasn't a complete leap to think I'd like this as wellFaye's catches her longtime boyfriend Eric cheating on her and after pulling herself together she goes out to have a bit of fun and she does but the fun she finds is her childhood crush and Eric's older brother Dex Now Faye's always been a good girl and despite the fact that she's got s parents she is a well rounded if stubborn and mouthy individualI really liked everything about this book I liked that Faye is a strong character she knows her mind she's not afraid to say what she's thinking and at no time does she consider going back to the cheating scum that is her ex boyfriend I loved Dex who wouldn't he tries to make the best out of the situation I loved the club the rest of the guys like I said everything Now this is a softer MC book than a lot out there and I must admit I usually prefer mine a bit grittier but that said I liked this just the way it wasIf I had to pick fault with anything it would be that it maybe seemed a bit rushed in places and was maybe a little too neat but not enough for me to deduct even half a star I've just re read this and while I really enjoyed it again I'm changing my rating to 4 which seems fairer Well hot damn Chantal releasing a biker book? 5 STARSI loved it This is the best MC book I have read in months I was a little nervous when I started reading this coz I'm very picky and bitchy when it comes to my MC booksDragon Lair is or maybe not your typical biker books and what I mean by that is it's not gritty or earth shattering that I used to read Dragon Lair is a lighter side of grittiness but well written and has some twist that hit me in the right spot And what's better than a hot biker story? Well how about we add an ex boyfriend brother? Genius isn't it? Chapter One captured my attention it kept me engaged and held my interest until the end And that's a lot because my bar is set pretty damn high in this particular genreOne of the things that makes a story much enjoyable for me is when I truly like both main characters DEX is a hard assed domineering hot biker sex on a stick He's probably your typical MC hero or maybe not? because even though he's alpha he didn't come off as a jerk He's demanding but he has this ability to be sweet and tender Now that's probably not the best words to describe a biker hero but sorry I can't help it he'll say something sweet like finding your double chin and swollen feet sexy? ahh he's such adorable in a rough sexy way “I lost everything in one night Over one mistake”FAYE is a likeable heroine I'm into doormat heroines so it was a surprised that my connection with Faye kept growing over the course of the book I enjoyed her as the leading character Faye has a strong personality but not too strong that she overpowered Dex Dex and Faye? I felt their connection throughout the book I liked the whole idea of ex boyfriend brother and throw in aview spoiler pregnant heroine in the story? I know typical but it worked and I loved it hide spoiler
