I Dream of Dragons by Ashlyn Chase

review - i dream of Dragons

When Rory Arish and his two fiery dragon siblings are run out of their ancestral Irish home, it seems their luck has run out-until they arrive in Boston and find a paranormal-friendly apartment building. Finally, Rory has a place to call home. There’s only one problem: Rory’s new lair has simultaneously been rented to an infuriating woman who is as stubborn as she is beautiful and will not leave ‘her’ apartment matter how steamed he may be…

Amber McNally is a down-on-her-luck flight attendant. She needs this apartment, and not even a fire-breathing dragon with his Irish charm and scorching good looks is going to scare her away. Holing up in their respective corners, a battle of wills ensues. Who will be the first to blink…or give in to their off-the-charts chemistry and decide to make this unorthodox living arrangement a little more permanent?

I feel as though a good one got away with this story because everything in the blurb aligned for me to love it – I enjoy the genre, it was the first in a series, comedic elements Irish characters – but I just didn’t. I really tried to love it, though. But, in the end, I just couldn’t connect. Although it was the first in a series, I think I was reading in a world that had already been created. There were a lot of characters, and all seemed to have backstories that had already been explored, or that is the impression I got, at least. There was romance present in the book, and a sex scene but, for me, the hero and heroine lacked chemistry. I didn’t have a great sense of sexual tension or attraction between them so I didn’t find the progression in their relationship very credible. I also found the Irish characters to be a little too stereotyped for me.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
