Shifters ruined his life. How can he be falling in love with one?
Growing up the only human in a shifter town, Joel has been an outcast his entire life – not even his own family let him forget how weak humans are. Running away was his only chance at a normal life, and he’s been avoiding shifters ever since. But when his job working in a coffee shop puts him in a room full of shifters, he has to confront his worst fears. He’s just not sure if he should be alarmed or happy that the hottest guy he’s ever met is determined to talk to him. After all, everyone knows shifters aren’t attracted to humans.
Dragon shifter Thomas Rollins thought nothing could be more difficult than resolving arguments between the shifters in his district. But when he meets his fated mate Joel, he has no clue how to get the suspicious human to talk to him for more than five minutes, never mind go out on a date. When he learns about Joel’s past, he’s determined to prove shifters and humans can get along very well.
Just as Joel is starting to let his guard down, his family finds him and forces him to come back to a place he refuses to call home. Can the trust Joel and Thomas have started to build survive the ultimate test?
Protector Dragon is a m/m paranormal dragon shifter/human romance with a HEA and no cliffhangers
So I read this book after book 2 because I’d enjoyed that one and hoped for more of the same.
Well, in a way I got that, for sure. This is a bit more angsty – although it really isn’t. This is a bit more silly than the first one, IMHO and a bit more drama for drama’s sake.
There is some world building and in general, while I appreciated that, the overall story was less than book 2.
You do not need to have read these in order or at all to enjoy the series.
