Ok, so this is my 2nd if not 3rd time, reading this book. IMO, Violette Dubrinsky was simply one of the best Romance writers on the market. Forget about genre classifications, because the Chica was just that good.

I use the word "was," because I don't know if she is dead or alive, but I do know this, that this Chick has managed to enthrall her readers with a few superfantastic reads, and then she just closed up shop, by snatching her books from Amazon and other retailers, and not to mention, she

Ramsey, Ramsey, Ramsey!


I liked that this book delved deeper into Ramsey. You do not piss off an alpha male like Ramsey Stone and live to tell about it. *Spoiler Alert* This book was much darker because of the death of his niece and him seeking answers and retribution. I love how he was still showing care and concern for Jezebel and the baby throughout the entire book. I love Violette's use of the phrase, "Never tickle a sleeping dragon..." because it perfectly describes the intensity of how far

What can I say about this book; pure literary genius, that's what! Violette Dubrinsky has producted another genius 5 (plus some) read. The Dragon is a great follow up to the Masseuse. This story has a great plot that grips you from the first page to the last page. The storyline flow is perfect and character interaction is flawless. I went through so many emotions in this book and stayed on the edge of my seat. I could actually see myself as an observer in the background of this tale (movie ...more

This sequel was so good! I just finished it and want to read it again because it is that good. Thank you Ms. Dubrinsky for such great story and beautiful ending. Usually sequels do not measure up to the first but this one did. I would recommend it for anyone who wants a quality story. This not just an interracial love story but a story of a love that we all want with some action and mystery thrown in. Well done

This book starts right after "The Masseuse" leaving no time between which I really liked, becuase it flowed from the last book and it would be easy to jump into the story even if you never read the first novel.

Where the first novel was more about romance I really felt that this story really focused more on the crime aspect and KJRS need for revenge. The mystery/suspect element was not without it's highlights, but overall didn't work for me. There were questions--who was responsible for Lily's de
I'm happy with the ending

Trials and tribulations is all I can say about this sequel. Ramsey and Jezebel needed all of the strength they had in this book. As oppose to the the first book where there only issue was Ramsey traveling a lot. This book is all about patience and understanding.

A lot has gone down with Ram and Jez they're been the brought through the wringer. I'm surprised they still had their love for each other with all of those trials and tribulations. All the betrayal taking place a

The story of Ramsey Stone and Jezebel Carter was a great read in love's saving grace. The book the Dragon was my favoraite of the 2. The twist and turns in this romance story was worth the ride. Ramsey is a man who loves hard and will do what's needed to be done to protect the ones he loves. Jezebel is a strong willed woman who loves the dragon who she fears and loves at the sametime. If you want a great romance to bite your teeth into start with the Masseuse to see how Ramsey and Jezebel find ...more

I loved the first and thought the second would have me just as much. Before I was half way done I was contemplating putting the book down for good. It was lagging and I was so tired of Jez. How could someone supposedly be so smart yet so stupid. You're are asking questions but general question to where no answer answered anything just made more questions. I just wanted to shake her and yell "WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU". I forced myself to finish this because I paid for it. I love when a ...more
This book lost a bit of steam for me coming off of such a high from the first book. I just didn't like all the distance between Ramsey and Jezebel. I understood it was necessary for the plot to seem feasible, but a lot of that fire was missing. Ramsey didn't feel like a mob boss to me. He seemed like he was just playing a roll which he kind of was since he really wasn't into that job. He wanted his life with Jez more, so the whole boss thing wasn't completely believable for me. The outcome was ...more
It seems that a lot of people are gaga for Ramsey Stone. I, unfortunately, am not one of them. I just had a hard time with what he became after (view spoiler). I understand family loyalty but it went a little far for me with (view spoiler). As the book went on, I didn't really understand why Jezebel still loved Ramsey. (view spoiler) ...more

I just read Masseuse and Dragon in one day. Ms. Durbinsky has placed herself solidly on my favorite authors list. I've read other books that she's written but these two are by far my favorite. I don't normally like strong stubborn women, but I found myself drawn to Jezebelle because underneath all that she was still a woman and she made no excuses for being a strong one. I also loved Ramsey, considering he was the head of a crime family, with Jezebelle he remained the same caring, loving man he ...more

It has been a while since I have picked up a book that was not PNR and even longer since I have grabbed a book and did not want to put it down! Dubrinsky has won me over, did I mention that I am not into mobbish/gangsta books?

A few things grated on my nerves, but I could see those things happening though I didn't like it. Great twists and turns. I liked the complexity of Ramsey. I also liked that we were finally able to have all questions answered.

Great adult story, adult situations, adult lan
I don't think I am the intended audience for this one. I do like this author she is a great storyteller. But this book just didn't completely work for me in the end.

The entirety of the book has us all mired in this criminal underworld. It is claustrophobic and for much of the book Jezebel is utterly powerless. She had no agency whatsoever. I could somewhat put up with the story of Ramsey's redemption. But I had to sit through Jezebel's inertia to get there.

Excellent read!

After reading the Masseuse I couldn't wait to download this book. And I'm so happy I did. I couldn't wait to finish reading Jaz and Ramsey's story and to see what happened between them. Both of them tried to push the other away. Jaz tried to push Ramsey away because of who he was and the lies he told. Ramsey tried to push Jaz away to keep her safe but the love they had to one another wouldn't allow for them to be apart. If you have not read the Masseuse or The Dragon you should.

I love Violette Dubrinksy is one of my favorite writers and I love Ramsey and Jez this book is good but different from the first story. This book is more serious and dark we get to know who The Dragon really is and he is lethal we learn more about his family. Ram is sexy in this book but he is so attentive with Jez's pregnancy its cute the questions he asked at the doctors exams were comical . I enjoyed reading this book and I hope I get to read more about this group of characters.

How far will you go to protect your family and loved ones? How far would you go to protect your family from your family? This book answers that question beautifully.

Ramsey is a very determined man who will stop at nothing to protect his family even when it came to protecting his family from his family.

5 delicious stars for a beautiful ending.

This is a 2 book series which was a real page turner. Love conquered all in the end because that is what true love does! Jezebel Carter made Ramsey Stone work for her love and he had to change in order to keep her in his life. Excellent read, would highly recommend this series to anyone who loves, drama, mystery, intrigue, action in their reading!

Ok. I officially like this author!!

This book was a great read. Wasn't too fast paced and not too slow either. Short, but great series. I hope there's a novella or something, that gives us a glimpse in their lives after the dragon....

This makes want to keep reading IRR books. This author is so good at writing them, so I'll keep reading them.
Wow! This book has everything except a dragon! It has family drama, love, romance, gang wars(Double Dragon), murder, kidnapping, betrayal and revenge. The story is interesting and fast paced. The characters are well-developed and engaging. Totally shocking who the real "bad-guy" turned out to be! I really loved this two part series!

Excellent book!

I really really enjoyed this book. It had a little bit of everything. There was mystery,betrayal, murder, heartbreak and romance, all set to an international backdrop.The characters were fully developed, exposed and explored. I didn't want it to end.

In this sequel to The Masseuse, Ms Dubrinsky does it again. The Dragon was a thrill ride from beginning to end. This story has it all, romance, betrayal, and a lot of drama. The chemistry between Ramsey and Jezebel proves that true love, no matter what comes along, will not be denied.

This was just as good as the first book, with a bit more suspense and drama thrown in the mix. And of course, there was a nice amount of steamy love scenes. ;-)

I can not get enough of the characters of this book or any of this authors works. I just purchase the books without reading the synopsis because they are that good.
