Book Review: The Dragon King's Mate by Harlow Blaze


Book Description

Who’s more dangerous, her stalker or her king?


Dancing in a rowdy nightclub isn’t most girls’ career plan, but Ava makes it work. Bump, grind, flirt—easy as pie.

Her life shatters when she’s marked. A human that can have dragon shifter babies is a prize worth killing for, and her stalker is ready to be a dad.

When her apartment burns down, Ava learns a fun fact. Stalkers don’t like being rejected. And hers will stop at nothing to claim her as his own.

One man can help her.

Baz—King of the Seattle dragon shifters and definitely not a gangster. Despite the warnings to stay away from him, his protection is her only hope.

But Ava has a problem. Powerful and sexy as hell, Baz sets her soul on fire.



Baz doesn’t have time to help humans. His sister has a target on her back, and family always comes first.

Everything changes when a dancer crashes into his lap, desperate for his protection.

Ava’s sweet scent and feisty temper drives his inner beast wild. The need to mate is irresistible, but his pretty, new roommate is already running from one dragon. Seducing her for himself is, at best, morally gray.

But Baz has always been a bad boy, and rules don’t apply to the king.

At first, having her in his penthouse is delicious torture. But the longer Ava is around, the more Baz starts to soften.

And when you’re king, being soft isn’t an option.

My Review

Baz and Ava are so fun together. They meet at the club she works at but once Baz meets her, it's hard for him to just leave her alone because she's been dragon marked, which means she can mate with a dragon shifter if she finds one she likes. Since there are more male dragon shifters than females, the males will fight over the female humans who have been marked. 

Ava seems to have a stalker as well so when her home burns down, Baz brings her back to her place where she'll be safe. But in keeping her safe, they spend a lot of time together and before Baz can sort his feelings out for her, his little sister let's the other male dragon's know that she's around. It's the kick in the pants that Baz needed in order to realize that he wants her for himself. But she's still in danger from her stalker and I liked watching as the stalker got closer and finally came out to get his prize, Ava. 

Ava is no shrinking violet and she's smart. So when she finds herself in danger she acts smart until Baz can help. I really liked the ending and seeing how things turned out for them and knowing that there's yet another dragon marked female that's going to need help. I can't wait to find out who it is and who her Dragon will be. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
