How far is Cody willing to go to keep his dragon?

Kirit is lonely and he’s sick of coming home from the king’s assignments to a cold, empty cave. After searching for years for a mate, Kirit decides it’s time to try a new approach. Against the advice of all his friends, he heads for the human side of the world. There he finds Cody, and the man is everything he could ever want. It takes a little bit of persuasion, but he manages to talk Cody into coming back with him to Faerie.

Within a week of arriving, Cody is beginning to rethink his impulsive decision. He’s trekked across more terrain than he would care to remember, been summoned to meet a king, and flown on a dragon—not an experience he’s willing to repeat anytime soon. Kirit’s growly possessiveness is starting to wear on his nerves, and the unexpected hostility he encounters at the palace is almost enough to make him give up.

But Cody is stubborn. He may not be willing to admit it out loud, but Kirit has got under his skin. He may even, shockingly enough, love the big guy.

Now Cody has to decide what he’s willing to do to keep the man of his dreams.

 Excerpt

I enjoyed this book.  Kirit is lonely and is convinced that he may have luck finding a mate in the human world since he has been unable to in Faerie.  Cody is a rent boy and his starting to become discontent with his life.  When these two meet up there is a world of miscommunication and Kirit keeps his life secret from Cody.  Cody has his life turned upside down when he is told that Kirit has claimed him as his mate.

This is a nice read.  The writing is good.  I love the descriptions used by the writer.  The characters are intriguing and vivid.  I love the grumpiness and general standoff behavior of the dragons.  The plot line gives us just enough to stay interested in the characters and their situations.

The bad of the read was the plot.  Though it does give you that interest that is about it.  The plot was shallow and just too mysterious.  I know this is the first in a series but I couldn’t understand Seamus or the court.  Even the background for the dragons wasn’t very well done.  We are given bits and pieces that make no sense.  The one big bad guy is WAY too easily taken care of.  I think it could have been a better read if there was some sense of where the mystery plot was going and if the world was built a little more.

Still I did have fun reading this one.  It is a definite feel good book and makes me smile to think of Cody and his dragon.  I will read the next to see where this one will go.
