Eoin Grant hasn’t encountered a female of his race in decades, and this crazy person’s scent declares her unmated. Fate set her in his path, and he won’t let this opportunity slip through his claws.

Not His Dragon is book one in the Not This series by Annie Nicholas.

It’s fun, cute, and silly. I enjoyed the town with it’s shifters. I liked that the shifters live opening amongst the humans. I liked how our hero and heroine first meet and I had fun with their romance.

Eoin is yummy. I do so love dragon shifters. I had fun with his relationship with Angie and how it grew. I also liked Angie, her business, and how she interacted with Eoin.

I did feel that their where things that could have been f

So so much potential but not fleshed out enough for me.

I wish there'd been more about her shop, and all the bad luck she had,
And more about the wolves... she tells us that the alpha wolf is into her but we don't see it. The omega wolf we're told is her bestie, but IMO they come off as work acquaintances at best. The H and h's relationship went from almost 0 to the ILY's in the blink of an eye.
The bits about the vampire seemed almost random because it's like we get bits and pieces of info but w

I was really excited to read this based on the blurb and the adorable cover, but the world/character building seemed to unravel and it was hard to maintain that initial excitement throughout

"she took off like a lone gazelle at a lion convention" - this made me bust out a laugh and I was feeling really good about this story

"an app that would beep when he clapped" - fabulous idea! how has someone not made this already????

"Nice tat. What does it say?"
"What? Why?" - Hyena-Level LOL

Loved it!

I don't read shifter romances as much as I used to, so this was a nice treat. Eoin is absolutely yummy, and I loved watching his relationship with Angie grow. I also loved learning about how this society works, with shifters living openly amongst humans, and thought the idea of Angie having a back scratching business for shifters was pretty clever. Hope there are more stories set in this world of dragons and shifters and vampires for me to read! I'd love to learn more about Victor and R

3.5 stars
This story was different in a good way. I was hesitant to read a "dragon romance". This story makes you stretch your imagination. there are a few holes but the story is still easy to follow. I liked the characters and some of the scenes made me laugh.I liked how Eoin was fierce and then shy at times. Angie was fierce but had the worst luck at times. Not bad for a first book in the series. I liked the mystery of who Angie was and enjoyed their road to HEA.

Not his Dragon by Annie Nicholas
Not my first book by this writer which I really enjoy before. Only thing that worried me was the number of pages.
Sometimes a book with this many pages ends up dragging and I got bored through parts.
Eoin is a isolated dragon and has been away from his clan for many years.
Angie own her own business and has always been a little different but doesn't smell like shifter so everyone believes she's human. That's is until she meets Eoin and he tells her she smells like

A fun and enjoyable read if very light. So thin plot, shallow word building and shallower characterization.

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

I don't read paranormal books as often as i used too, however this was a really nice refreshing dip into the waters again, which has tempted me to read them again more often. Why did i put them down in the first place?!

The book is full of wit and sarcasm that just had me smiling and Eion's determination to get Angie once he had seen her was certainly strong. However he portrayed that alpha male, i must look after m

A good start to a series. I liked the characters and the concept, could have been more detailed. Parts of it were rushed and it left me feeling like I missed something.

This is set in a world where shifters are known to the general public, there's all kinds of kinds (Dragons, werewolves, big cats, vampires, etc). Angie runs a back scratch clinic (think along the lines of a massage therapist) and Eoin is the local dragon. She was raised human but there's obviously something more to her. After one

This is a delightful book! The author has created a unique shifter universe with this amusing story., I didn't want to put it down. There is something for everyone to enjoy. Enjoyed getting to know these characters and found them amusing, feisty, and strong. I look forward to reading more from this author.

I nearly dnf'd this very early on - some of the words used seemed clunky and just not right - (tits - as thought by a woman) but I decided it might be a cultural thing and skimmed past the rather 'ugly' writing there.

It took a while to get into the story but I read to the end and enjoyed it a(as the first in a series) A mix of serious stuff and froth. I liked the characters and it was very refreshing not to have the usual 'billionaire' shapeshifter ;)

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I loved this book! It was exactly what I needed. It was light hearted, funny, sarcastic, and sweet. I laughed out loud a few times and enjoyed all the banter between the characters. Eoin was scary and intimidated everyone he encountered but when it came to Angie he was super sweet. Angie was independent and a strong female even though she felt she didn't belong in any certain group. She had many insecurities but didn't let those sto

A Romp of a Read

A lighthearted dragon romance filled with everyday sorts of charm. The book is a little light on plot, but the characters' raw emotional qualities help sell the little girl lost romance between Angie and her reclusive dragon artist. I liked the back and forth challenge between Angie and Eoin. I did wish there had been a more detailed work up of the relationship--I imagine frenzy only gets you so far in building a bond. But, the writer did do a good job of humanising the lonelines

Angie Weldon was startled by the piercing blast of a fire siren which caused her to spill her coffee down her clean work clothes, shattering the mug on the floor! Smoke poured out of her second-hand toaster (whose timer and eject spring were broken), and her charcoal flaming toast dropped on last week’s newspaper. Of course the newspaper immediately burst into flames and she smashed the toast with a wet dishtowel – oops, not a dishtowel, but her yoga pants! She grabbed her ringing cell phone to ...more

Right from the start we get a clear picture of the scattered Angie. Being flustered right at the start makes for an amazing meet-cute with the dark and severely annoyed Eoin. When Eoin "mistakes" her for a dragon encroaching on his territory he unwittingly opens the door to Angie's past, one she has no clue exists. Angie's scratching business is finally starting to see success and there's no way she'll let an egotistical crazy man, even one who may or may not be incredibly attractive and compell ...more

I really enjoyed this book, & I totally love the covers for all three books in this series. I couldn't put this down, stayed up way too late to finish it, too. I like that it's a bit different than the normal shifter type of book writing. The characters (Angie and Eoin) are very likable, & I appreciated that it wasn't instant love as is the case with so many shifter books (it's still a bit fast, but not instant for either of them, more developed as a relationship over a few weeks). Eoin ...more

Angie Weldon has just started to get her business off the ground. A shifter ancestor left her sharp nails, perfect for scratching shifters in their shifted form. With the support of the local werewolf pack, it looks like her life might take a turn for the better. When Eoin Grant, male dragon and artist, bumps into her, sparks fly. She has no interest in a romantic relationship - she learned her lesson in dating shifters - but he's convinced she's a dragon - and perfect for him.

3.5 stars rounded up because of the characters.

Angie is a human among shifters. At least she thinks she’s human, but one unfortunate interaction with the town’s lone dragon, Eoin, has her and everyone around her thinking otherwise.

I liked the characters. Eoin was a bit of a jerk at first, but he quickly turns it around and is all about pursuing Angie and getting her to realize they’re meant to mate. Angie was the furthest thing from a doormat heroine. She was stubborn and insistent on being inde

Overall I liked this book a lot. It was kind of quirky, light hearted and fast paced with a whole slew of characters I enjoyed reading about.

I do think some things got a bit shortchanged - mostly in Angie's sudden acceptance. I think the talk of instinct was supposed to tell us this is why she seemed to abruptly change her mind, but so much was made about her ability to shove down those parts of herself that it felt more superficial than anything else.

The reveal was also kind of anticlimactic. T

Warning: there’s a minor spoiler here so avoid this review if even minor ones throw you off.

I don’t think it’s too much of a spoiler to note that the leading lady in Not His Dragon (Not This Series, Book 1) does end up as a dragon. I am sooo jealous. I really want to be a dragon shapeshifter. It’s no fair that, so far at least, there are no signs of it. That’s why I’m both hopeful (if it can happen to her why not to me) and envious (why does it happen to her and not to me) as a result of what h

First I have to say - I love the covers on this series. And that's before I noticed (just now) that the reflections of the shifters on all the covers show them in their human forms.

I really like Angie and Eoin, and want to be friends with them. I had major problems putting this book down and definitely stayed up way too late reading, because I HAD TO KNOW what happened next. Will Angie figure out what was blocking her? What's going on with all the bad luck at Angie's shop? Will Angie finally gi

Not His Dragon is the first book in the Not This series by Annie Nicholas. New Port is lucky to have a dragon living nearby. Tourists love snapping pictures and while others love collecting his artwork. But for Eoin Grant, things have gone stale. His castle is a bit run down and his art is lacking emotion, but no one will say anything to him because if he really wanted to, he could eat them. It isn't until he literally runs into Angie Weldon that his world is shaken to its core. For Angie, she i ...more
