An enjoyable conclusion to the events and multiple subplots of the series - though I do hope she writes more of this character. After the baby, I'm sure.

Aisling and Drake are trying to get married but something always seems to go wrong. Proscribed, Bael is hounding Aisling to give him his sacrifices, Drake goes missing in Tibet, Fiat uses Aisling to support his call for war against the Green Dragons, and it's all just one big mess that her family is in London to witness. Fortunately, she finds U

This was good without being fantastic, solid without being incredible.

I think the moments of pure what-the-fuckery are probably what kept me interested in this series, which completely contradicts why I didn't like it.

Let me explain.

The dialog is consistently unnatural, stilted and over-expository. There were too many "OMFG SHUT UP JIM/AISLING" moments for my liking. As for the plot, it often felt forced and cheesy with unfortunate frequency.

Despite all my gripes, this book is downrigh
1.5 stars!

Surprisingly, my favorite character is Fiat. He's calculated, vindictive, ruthless, and composed. The type of personality one loves to hate. The only reason I dislike Fiat is because he was the root of many problems for Aisling and Drake regarding mates and the like. However, I don't really like Aisling, Drake, or Jim, so the Fiat problem was only an irritation - nothing to really get mad about.

Although Aisling and Drake have somewhat improved, I still can't believe that she is in her

Yeah, yeah. Okay. The last two books in the series lessened my irritation with the second book in this (so far) four book series. This is still just fluff reading, but the fourth book was fun, and actually had me wishing there were more books in the series after reading the ending.

It seems weird throughout this series to vaguely elude to how much more powerful Aising is than she should be at this phase in her Guardian-ness, but there's never an explanation, never a back story about her family a

Reviewed by Jen

Holy Smokes is the fourth and final book following the life and love of Aisling Grey (although I understand she and Drake will be pretty prominent characters in Katie MacAlister's new Silver Dragons series). This is a series of books you have to read in order for them to make any sort of sense. So, here's the order: You Slay Me, Fire Me Up, Light My Fire.

In this installment, Aisling and Drake are finally getting married, but as the book opens, Drake isn't showing up for the ceremo

Gave it a 5 'cause of the hilarity, action, suspense, but my fave book out of the series is still the 2nd one (Fire Me Up). More mysteries unravel in this book, what with Aisling confirming she is indeed breeding, Drake is more protective than ever, and I really liked Uncle Damian's character, he reminded me of Robert De Niro in "Meet the Parents". Although this is the last book in the series, there are new characters and surprising events which lead to more questions. I give credit to Katie Mac ...more

Best book of the series! I really liked this series, and I liked the ending. I liked seeing all the characters grow, and I appreciated that not everyone one-dimensional. Loved seeing Uncle Damian in this one, too! :)

My only major qualm, in the end was that the books were too short and had too many editing errors to cost the price they cost for Kindle. If you are going to charge $7+ for a Kindle version of a book, it had better be longer than 400 page and be immaculate when it comes to editing, i
Disappointing ending to the series. Seemed like the author didn't have any direction and just wrote for the sake of finishing. Drake is still fire engine hot though!!

I'd like a little closure with some of these books. I enjoy the characters even though Jim is annoying and Aisling is helpless and airheaded at times, but I wish more would be resolved. Hardly anything happened in this book to further the plot. There was danger, people were running around after people, nothing was getting explained to Aisling (and therefore us), and then more issues were presented, with no resolution. I've had about enough of books that keep building and building with no end in ...more

The good: Characterization of certain endearing characters (i.e. Jim) remains consistent with the rest of the series.

The bad: Characterization of certain one dimensional hackneyed characters (i.e. Drake) remains consistent with the rest of the series. There is very little character growth through this series.
The same stale jokes are constantly recycled.
The world building, which was weak to start off with, doesn't improve with the addition of a second, third or fourth book.

2nd Read- May 29, 2014- Still 4 Stars

My second time through reading this series and then reading my review from the first time, and basically, I still feel the same. Though, I think I was a bit too in to rereading these and just devoured all 4 books in a row. I think my only wisdom to myself would be to 'next time', if there is one... Don't do that. Don't read them in all one lump. Space them out and savor the quirky brilliance of Katie MacAlister. The snarky, witty humor, wacky characters, cr
In the fourth book in the Aisling-Gray-Series Aisling and Drake try to get married – with the emphasis on try – only to be interrupted every time they stand before the altar what was getting old and annoying when it happened the third time. There were as many problems for Aisling to solve as in the previous books, some new characters were added to Aislings team like her demon steward Traci, Drakes brother and her uncle Damian. I liked him and his gruffly way setting Aislings head straight again ...more

My ratings system is as follows. One star is GOOD. The book is entertaining, easy to read and you don't want to stop reading because something about the book is compelling you not to. Two stars is GREAT! This time the story is not only entertaining, but highly creative, unique, easy to read and hard to put down. Three stars is EXCELLENT. Here the book has all aspects of one and two stars, but now the book is thought and emotionally provoking. Four is AWESOME. This is the read that is not only cr ...more

It is up to her usual standards, in this novel several plots that have been floating around get resolved. It almost felt like the finale of the series, but I won't know that until or if another book gets back.

As usual, she puts Aisling the main character and her love Drake through hoops. She has all kinds of things happen to her most of her hijinks relate to the two of them trying to get married and having crises coming up which prevent said nuptials to take place. Reminds me a bit of Betsy fro

I tried and tried to finish this book, I just could not. It wasn't a horrible book or series, I just could not read another line of Aisling. Really what is the point of having all that power if you cannot use it for something. And Drake was like a rigid stick in cement. He got on my nerves as well. They couldn't even hold a conversation without trying to jump each other bones. This book just wasn't very enjoyable.

Drake he worries about his woman but he does it in a macho, alpha sort of way, “where are you? Where have you been? Why have you not answered my calls?” Drake growled. “Rene and your uncle said you just disappeared on the street. Have you been harmed?” You would think Drake would learn by now that to get what he wants he needs to give his woman what she wants, “I would be perfectly happy to let you make wild, passionate, steamy dragon love to me, but first you have to answer a couple of question
Fun Fun Fun. Love the Aisling Grey, Guardian series. This is the 4th book in the series and Aisling and Drake are TRYING to get married. One thing after another gets in the way.

I feel like a few loose ends were wrapped up in this book - enough that I wonder if there will be another? I hope so. I feel like Aisling had too many pots on the fire - and it was hard as a reader to keep up with all the trouble she was in from so many directions.

Definetly a great series to read and I really love her t

And so with this 4th installment comes a somewhat ending. The last of the story is not really deep or anything, just like its predecessors. However I did find it to be an amusing light paranormal romance read! Even with Aisling being somewhat air-headed at times, she really comes through and gets what she needs done! In this one she is attempting to marry her smouldering wyvern while holding a lot of stuff together! The likes of which include her nutty step mom, uncle Damian, Bael, getting rid o ...more

This was a nice wrap up to this series - sort leaves a few to many things unsaid with the dragons, but ties up all the guardian stuff. Maybe it ties into one of her other series? Aisling using the "sweetie" thing every other time she talks to Drake bugged the heck out of me, but the humor is consistant. The plot thickens in this book between the dragons and becomes more of the story. I really like this author and will definately check out some of her other books.

I love this series. I love the laughter and entertainment they bring to my life.The moment I finished this book I had my nose plant in the first book of Silver Dragons. I just can't get enough of this world and characters.

This book was good about half way and I was enjoying it as I did the previous books. But it totally got ruined after that. My biggest problem was Fiat. Throughout the series Fiat is cold and calculated villain, maybe little psychotic but defin
Humor, chaos and a lot of boinking. That's three words that can describe any book about Aisling Grey. If you need light and funny paranormal romance, this is always a good choice.

I would be sorry that the series ended, but I have the next series about Silver dragons and Gabriel to keep me entertained.

What a fun book. I wouldn't say it was a definite drop everything and go get it...but it was humorous, witty and definitely different. A library patron mentioned she was listening to it...I picked it up on my Kindle and really couldn't put it down.

Aisling Grey just wants to marry Drake Vireo but things and obstacles seem to be getting in the way of this happening. Fiat still claims Aisling as mate even knowing that Aisling loves Drake unconditionally. Aisling is challenged for venediger position and has to accept the challenge. Lord Bael demands that Aisling pay homage to him six days from now. Aisling is still proscripted which upsets her greatly. Aisling struggles with the fact that Drake doesn't seem to trust her with sept business. Dr ...more

Wow, after reading some negative reviews I did not think this last book would be to my liking. But I did like the third and the fourth books, they were fun. After finishing the series I actually think I might read the series again sometime, that's quite something after I thought more than once about stopping while reading the first and second book.
And don't let the blurb mislead you. The story is not about him standing her up (they have four weddings in total), or him disappearing. There are sev

A new Aisling Grey, Guardian, novel from the author of The Last of the Red-Hot Vampires

Drake Vireo, the green dragon of Aisling's dreams, is finally ready to make an honest woman of her-if she can ever get him to the altar. Being stood up cools Aisling's jets, but not her passion, which is a good thing when Drake disappears and it's up to Aisling to find him. At least her doggie demon Jim is always at her side. Just call him a Guardian's best friend.

This book was better than the previous one.
I actually wanted to read a bit more about her family but only her uncle was apparently worth writing about.

In the previous books I had nothing for Drake but now he kind of grows on me. It's not that I want him for myself (god no!) .... well.... maybe his body.... yeah, that would be all right but not the person himself.

Fiat is a really good bad guy. But sometimes I liked him more than Drake.... that's not good.
