Title: I Like Big Dragons and I Cannot Lie Series: The Dragon Series #1
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Okay, so for quite a while, I had seen fellow readers and friends talk all about LLV's books, and how amazing they are- and I was always a bit curious. But, I could never seem to find the time to fit it into my blog schedule to start one of her many series- just to see what all of the fuss was about. Then I saw this blurb- and I made the freaking time. I finally know what the fuss is about- and it is about A LOT. This woman can write. And she does it well- very well.
Keifer and Blythe are definitely some of my new favorites, whether it be the PNR aspect or what, I'm not sure- but I was drawn into their story from the very beginning. When I first read the synopsis, I was thinking Keifer was a dragon shifter- but no, he actually RIDES the freaking dragon!! How damn cool is that??? And I must say, his dragon is hilariously amazing as well. He is just as big and important a character as Keifer is, and one that I cannot imagine not having in the story. He is the perfect counterpart to Keifer's ways- he can put the man into his place like no other. Well, no other than Blythe it seems.
That woman is her own little brand of magic, even if she technically isn't born with any. She holds more sway over the way of Keifer's world than one could have ever imagined. Being his true mate, it was to be expected, but to see this large and in charge man brought to his knees by this little woman- breathtaking.
There is certainly an underlying element of good vs. evil to the story, and it plays out incredibly. The battle scenes are spectacularly written, and LLV does a great job giving you the illusion of actually being in the scene yourself.
Although I haven't read any of her other books YET (trust me, I am starting VERY SOON), if they are even a tenth as good as this one is- I will be hooked on this woman, and immediately devour everything that I can get my hands on by her. I cannot wait to get the next book in this series, because I am already addicted to it. These dragon riders are men that you definitely do NOT want to miss out on, so if you were hesitating at all on getting this book- DON'T!! You will not be disappointed, I can assure you. You are gonna love Keifer and Blythe!!
