Book Review: Cowboy Dragon By Terry Bolryder

Cowboy Dragon
(Texas Dragons #1)
By Terry Bolryder


Save a horse, ride a dragon...

Marian West has nothing left to her name but her car (which is currently broken down), an old coin in her pocket, and the legend of a man named Harrison, who she's currently looking for. But instead of finding the last person that can help her, she gets a pack of hungry coyotes instead. By either good or bad luck, she's rescued by a tall, gorgeous stranger with eyes bluer than a Texas sky. His dominant presence is matched only by the mystery that surrounds him and his sprawling, rugged land.

Harrison didn't expect to find the curvy, stubborn woman so interesting. After saving her from coyotes and more, the experienced cowboy boss of Dragonclaw Ranch knows he owes Marian for a favor her father did for him a long time ago. But his dragon says "mate" every time he looks at her, and even though he's going to help the determined woman, it will be difficult to keep the monster inside him from wanting to make her his own.

Marian thinks Harrison is avoiding her. And she would be right. But the growly, hot cowboy with a shockingly kind heart is making all her senses come alive. Unexpected kisses lead quickly to scorching nights beneath the full Texas moon. Danger and secrets lurk around every corner, but anything that threatens a Texas dragon's mate will quickly learn that everything is bigger in Texas. Even a dragon's love.

My Review:

This was a quick and fun story! Though, personally, I would have liked there to have been a more prominent plot somewhere in between all the witty banter, friendships, and romance. For what this was it a fun story that passed the time well.

Marian was a headstrong woman who stood up for herself and anyone around her that needed help. I liked her right off the bat. I would have preferred there to have been more of a buildup between her and Harrison. What I will say is that their chemistry was off the charts!

Harrison was a closed-off mountain of a man... ahem dragon. After he protects her from unwanted advances they hit it off. After that, he does open up but he's still doing his best to not get emotionally invested. This is a romance novel so you can assume that it backfires but eventually rights itself.

The second half of the novel was fine but I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the other shoe drop in the form of another plot point that was vaguely mentioned only to be left stranded. Had that come to fruition this would have been a 4-star review. Here's hoping the author continues to weave that storyline into the next books in this series because I'm very interested in other character's stories!

My Favorite Quotes:

Audio Book Review: Warrior Fae Trapped By K.F. Breene

Warrior Fae Trapped
(Warrior Fae #1)
By K.F. Breene

Narrator: Nicole Poole
Length: 9 hours and 21 minutes

The truce between the vampires and the shifters is long over. So when the two factions stumble upon a lost fae warrior who has no idea what she is, all hell breaks loose.

Charity hasn't had it easy. Growing up in a bad part of Chicago, left by her mother at 16, she's a survivor. So when she gets a scholarship to a good college out in California, she thinks all her dreams have come true.

Instead she falls head first into a nightmare.

At a posh party she doesn't belong, she gets the shock of her life: vampires and shifters are real! Magic is real. And she is anything but a mundane poor kid just trying to make it.

Warrior runs in her blood. If only she knew how to use it.

Suddenly, she is trapped between two magical super powers - a cunning elder vampire who wishes to use her for her blood ties and maybe tie her to the bed, and a sexy alpha shifter who will protect her at all costs.

Her life of surviving never could've prepared her for this. And if she doesn't learn to harness the fae magic running through her blood, she'll be imprisoned forever.

Action, humor, and romance - we're going back to the DDVN World!

My Review:

I wish I could be as enamored, as so many other people are, with this series/universe that author has been fleshing out for quite a few books, but that's simply not the case. The concepts are so interesting but the characters just don't do it for me. The writing also doesn't pull me in. My battle with books by this author is becoming frustrating.

Charity walked the very fine line of being annoying throughout the story. I understood her hangups on gifts and money, to a degree, but how you rationalize and then proceed to get angry for receiving something that you're going to be employed for is beyond my capabilities as a human being. Her untrained and untamed magic being all-powerful and being able to almost defeat the big-bad (that no one else that was present could defeat) was disheartening. 

Devon was a really nice guy but was always wearing his a**hole persona. He proved time and time again that he was caring and sweet but they fought like cats and dogs. His pack was great until Yasmin came along. She was a disturbance that no one needed and she did nothing for the story overall.

The ending was left open for the next book in the series and I'm not sure if I want to continue on. Maybe when I get desperate for something to listen to I may break down and get to it. Until that time comes I'll be moving onto other books!

The Audio Book:

The narration was great because I adore Nicole Poole's narrations! Though it still sounds strangely muffled. I've definitely heard her sound better in audio books in the past, but that's not on her.  It also isn't my headphones either because I got a new set a few weeks ago. Otherwise, the different tones in male and female voices were fantastic!

Monthly Recap: April 2021

April!

How is April over already?! Everything passed in a blur this month. I finished rereading a monster of a beautiful book this month so that took up quite some time. I also discovered that there's such a thing as a Mood Rereader™. I'm one of them and I'm already sick of it. Why won't my brain let me read my 2 current huge 500+ paged monster of a book(s) in peace? I'll get to rereading that specific book right after I'm done with these two. I SWEAR!

On a more peaceful note, I finished 4 whole books this month. Considering everything that's going on that's still a win in my book. As much as I would love to hit 100 books read this year it isn't something I want to stress over. If it happens, fantastic! If it doesn't I have the next few decades to reach that milestone again C;

Until next month!
Happy reading!

Books I Read & Listened
To In April

| Audio Book | Audio Book | Audio Book |
  • A Kingdom Of Flesh And Fire By Jennifer L. ArmentroutRe-Read On April 2021: Just as good the second time around! URGH. I'm just angry that I miscalculated the time it would take to re-read this series so far because now I still have 12 days to wait for the next book! Is there a Cliffhangers Anonymous™ group because I need to cry and share my feelings about this with someone! 😭 (My review is live!) 
  • Haunted By Shadows By Kel CarpenterI think the magic that I saw in book one has fizzled out after I finished this one. There isn't much I can say in terms of where the story went without giving away massive spoilers so I'll have to leave it at that. (My review coming soon!)
  • Wolf Girl By Leia StoneThis book was going to get a 4-star review before that ending. After that ending, it's getting a 3-star review. (My review coming soon!)
| eBook |
  • Rancher Dragon By Terry Bolryder - This book passed the time really well! It was a great in-between book while I was anxiously awaiting 2 big books to be released. It was quick, sweet, and to the point. (My review coming soon!)
