Evelyn Foxe's life has hit rock bottom. Her mother's gambling habits has put in the sights of a loan shark with no chance of her ever being able to pay back the debt. When all options fail, she takes drastic measure th ...more
Fury of Obsession by Coreene Callahan is the 5th book in the Dragonfury series. It took me awhile to get into this one. There are several plot lines running concurrently and it’s not until around the halfway point that things start to gain a cohesive focus. There are several main characters. On one hand we follow Gage, who is imprisoned and being tortured. On another is Ivar and his plot to infect an entire town with a deadly virus. Then there is Venom who is struggling to overcome lone ...more
Too much inner dialogue.
Venom seemed like he was not picky who would be in his bed or that he would be able to love and touch so I did not feel any connection between him and Evelyn.
This could have been good but the author should have cut half of the information in the book. I did not need every characters' thoughts about everything.

You know what I find amazing? Coreene Callahan has only written FIVE Dragonfury books (and one novella). I was astounded when I realized that this series really only had five books. It is such an epic series, larger than life that I keep thinking there were many more books. The good news is, there will be! *grins*

Well, what to say about this one...
I'll start with what I liked - Venom and Evelyn. I loved both characters. Venom is the perfect combination of sweet and dominant. And let me add hot and sexy. Evelyn is the perfect combination of sweet and sassy. They are so good for each other. More of what I liked is the story of what is going on in the Dragonkind world. That's all I'll say about that- don't want to give anything away.

I loved Venom’s story! I originally found this series on The Kindle Prime Lending Library and read the first couple books free and then bought them because I became addicted and wanted to keep them. Coreene Callahan’s Dragonfury Series is incredible! It’s packed full of action, danger and smoking hot romance. Fur ...more
Venom secretly longed for a relationship. Seeing his brothers in arms had opened up his eyes to what he needs. Someone he can call his own. But being a toxic dragon that he is, he never thought it was possible…until the night he goes AWOL.
Pushed into desperate time, Evelyn Foxe has to find a way for quick money. But what does a very smart, top notch, out-of-luck accountant do? Yup, you guessed it. Go and work with the city’s top Madame. She has no choice. A lady does what she has to do right ...more

Dragon-warrior Venom is alone in the midst of all his coupled-up brothers. His loneliness is exacerbated by the fact that his longing for a mate of his own cannot be fulfilled because, due to his genetic makeup he is toxic (literally) and cannot spend a lot of time with a female without making her sick or even causing her death. He is reduced to short-term interludes that only intensify his longing for a mate. Until he encounters Evelyn Foxe. Evelyn is the perfect fit for Venom but sh ...more
Evelyn’s life has went to hell lately and only seems to be getting worse until during a desperate attempt at fixing one thing she meets Venom and he has her hoping that things might turn for the better. The reader can’t help but get caught up in the story of these strong compelli ...more

This was a fun read, I wouldn't recommend this as a stand alone. I'm actually going to go back & purchase the books prior in this series. The world seems interesting & the writing was good. However I think I would have enjoyed the book much more if I'd been familiar with some basics prior to reading it. I aim to remedy that. =)
I really wanted to enjoy this. It's rare that you find a story with a black female love interest. Alas, the love part of this love story was minimal. As someone else stated, though Evie was described as being a super intelligent and witty female, all we saw her do was have sex. Little if any contribution to the plot or pack. Oh well. Plus, I found myself skipping over much of the other stories. They just didn't hold my interest.
I loved Venom and Evie's story. I am a big fan of this entire series. I gave this story 3 stars because I didn't like reading what the characters were thinking instead of actual conversation. There was no real flow because the character would spend so much time describing what they saw, how they felt but in their mind (sometimes during a supposed conversation) through a majority of the book.
Evelyn has fallen on hard times, she's lost her job, and her mother died recently leaving her to handle the huge gambling debt she owes the Russian mob. She finds herself in a dire situation with, in her mind, only one option left. Sell the only thing she has left to sell, herself.

Every time I pick up a book from this series I think to myself that I surely I can't love it more than the last one. And so far with every book in the series I've been proven wrong.
I like Venom in the other books, sure, but he kind of was a jerk at times, even though he made me laugh. So I was slightly apprehensive about his story.
Of course none of that needed to be. He was more than awesome! I felt for him from the start and I really wanted him to have happiness! I thought I am in a ...more

I loved Venom. After Wick he is my favourite Nightfury dragon. All Venom wanted was a woman of his own, one that could withstand his toxic nature. I loved how sweet he was towards Evelyn, and how he wanted to woo her, instead of just forcing her to go with him.

What did I like?
I couldn't wait to finish this book. I love that Venom tried to meet her halfway, rather than just kidnap her like all the others. Can't wait for the confrontation with Rodin, hope they kill the son and Rodin too. Speculating that some of the HE females that Ivar has stashed are mates to the other Nightfuries or perhaps Azrad and his crew.
