Review: The Dragon Tale by Jaydn Chase


Book Description

As a reporter, Sandra thought she just turned in the most important story of her life.

Now relishing in her latest triumph, she has just caught wind of a huge story she’s being told to stay away from.

She should have listened.

Malick is an enforcer with a dark secret that he shares with the rest in his clan.

Between work, and trying to live with the beast within, he’s sure that he’ll never be able to fall in love and lead a normal life.

When they are finally thrust together, they quickly come to realize that the world wants to tear them apart.

Will everything come crashing down?

Or can their love conquer all?

The Dragon Tale is a stand-alone short story with a guaranteed HEA, no cheating and steamy scenes intended for a mature audience.

My Review

Hearing tidbits about dragon sightings has Sandra looking deeper into the story even though she knows that it can't be dragons. But being a reporter, she can't let it go. 

Malick works as an enforcer for his father and they're dragon shifters. His father might have a real estate business but he's no straight laced businessman. 

Sandra drives to where people have spotted dragons and right away she spots one flying off. Instead of driving off and staying safe, she goes into the building and gets caught. Malick's father and the others there want to kill her so he gets her out of there. Later he finds her at her apartment and the lust takes over and they fall into bed together. They fall for each other really fast. 

Since this was a really short novella I wasn't expecting there to be a lot of story but I expected there to be more than there was. It ended fine but I really think the story needed just a few more pages so we could see how Malick smoothed things over with his father or if he did. I just would have liked a little more story. 

I give this book 2 out of 5 stars.
