Book Review: Cowboy Dragon (Texas Dragons #1)
I found a new-to-me author while searching KU for my next read, as this book kept catching my eye. The premise (to me) was totally over the top that I figured this story would be great, or it’d be a flop. However, Bolryder has written over 40 shifter reality books, and while I love a good shifter romance, this one did not go well. The cowboy dragon shifter idea ended up being too far-fetched for me to wrap my head around, and the writing seemed like one cliché after another.
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.
