Review of "About a Dragon" (Dragon Kin, #2) by G. A. Aiken (aka Shelly Laurensten)

About a Dragon - G.A. Aiken

Overall, a quick fun read with snarky, spunky heroine. Tried too hard for the spunkiness or humor in parts; bit too much dwelling on male sex organs.

With the exception of the male love interest, I liked the characters and was glad to see how the new queen was getting along. I just never warmed up to Briec. He was an arrogant dick start to finish and even the good things he did -- like rescuing her from an angry mob -- were in expectation of gratitude or reward. Instantly adapting to sort of stepfatherhood towards the end came out of the blue and out of character.

I'm sure I would have enjoyed this much more if I could have warmed up to the male lead in the paranormal romance.
