Book Review: Dead Sexy Dragon by Lolita Lopez

The last thing dragon shifter Stig Wyvern needs is his dead friend’s kid sister showing up on his doorstep. He’s just minutes away from entering a mating phase. Sharing his isolated house with the young woman he’s desperately lusted after for quite some time is a recipe for disaster.

But Cora Cardenas has nowhere else to go. She’s in deep trouble with some really nasty people and Stig is the only one who can protect her. That he’s deliciously sexy and makes her tingle with the simplest of smiles is just a bonus.

Cora quickly realizes Stig is hiding something from her. To make matters worse, she’s plagued with breathtakingly naughty dreams starring a shadowed lover who bears a startling resemblance to her host. And just what the hell is going on down in the basement at night?  Stig needs to get Cora out of his house but his inner beast has other ideas. He’s found his mate and she’s not going anywhere

Received in ebook format from netgalley.com and read on an ipad using kindle software.

Warning: this book is not for the easily offended, prudish or embarrassed so if you are i suggest you stop reading right about now!

This is a fairly short story and therefore easily consumed in a day.  For something this short, external characterisation and plots have had to be discarded – there is no time to fall in love, fall out, then spend several chapters moping around as they look at finding each other again.

Good use is made of what is left, and a reasonable scenario is set up, but perfection is hard in something so short (how the Knights found Cora, set her up and were dealt with subsequently are all extraneous to this story for instance). Some scenes are explicitly sexual, and this might offend some.
