Charred Heart

Modern day retelling of “Beauty and the Beast”

***Recommended for ages 18+ due to multiple, creative, detailed, steamy, sexy-time adult situations.***

For a thousand years, Chace has searched for a way to break the curse placed on him by a jilted lover. He’s a dragon shifter, one who can’t control when the magic will force him into a different form. He’s already lost everyone he ever cared about a few times over and doesn’t know how much longer he’s meant to suffer.

At his wit’s end, he makes a deal with a mysterious figure that offers him what he wants most – an end to his misery – in exchange for everything that’s his: His life, his power. His heart.

The next day, he meets Skylar, a modern day dragon slayer whose mission is to cage him – or kill him. Sexy, witty and brave, she is the yin to his yang, the woman destined to break the curse, balance his magic and make his broken heart whole.

Except it’s too late. Not only has he sealed his fate, but an innocent one-night-stand with Skylar has dragged her into the middle of a deal with the devil, one she won’t escape, if he can’t convince her that dragon shifters aren’t her enemies.

Ugh! I have severely mixed feelings here. The characters seemed flat. However, the story line was great, but weighed down with, what I felt was, too frequent sex scenes. Or maybe I didn’t agree with the tone of the scenes? I’m truly not sure what bothered me there, but I can say that the “twists” didn’t shock me but the cliffhanger did. ONLY because my kindle was telling me I had 20% to go. I’m too frustrated to continue in this world.

Good, even w/o HEA

Rather good story, but not complete; it appears there are 2 more novels before it's finished. Wish I'd known that before starting it. If I could afford the continuations I would finish, but I'm not willing to give up the $.I waffled btwn 3-4 stars, and ultimately decided to be generous. Would benefit from a good copy editor, though.

What would you do if your friends were disappearing and you could save them? Could you put others above yourself and learn from past mistakes? Or would you sell out the one who means everything to you to get to be able to pass away. Join the journey and find out.

This story was intense. I cried and smiled. I just hope this ends happy. I want this to end happy I will be reading the next book.

I liked the story. It was kind of mysterious and a bit suspenseful. It certainly left me wanting to read the next book!

Magic lassos, but no invisible planes

This book was interesting, not my favorite of Ford's books/series but still good for a quick and interesting read. I wish I had the second book to start right after I finished this one since it ends on a sort of cliff hanger, but I should be used to that and Lizzy Ford books that are part of a series, lol.The concept of dragons, shifters, and slayers/protectors was fascinating to read about, but it seemed more like a sketch of a world. I’m sure it will be fleshed out in further installments of the series. The identity and relationship of Mr. Nothing, Skyler, and Chase was a bit predictable to me. I wasn’t expecting the twist about her ex-boyfriend however.
