All I ever wanted was someone to love. Now my best friend is knocked up by the only hunky alien-dragon available and I can't tell anyone how totally jealous I am. The handful of humans who survived our ship's crash are locked in a struggle to live in sweltering heat with dwindling supplies.
The others are tak ...more
I really wanted to like these books, the series, but, I have a lot of problems with some of the basics. First, the female character(s), not likable, and give new meaning to, too stupid to live. They are at the mercy of a dangerous planet. They have no self defense skills, and yet continue to make stupid choices that not only endanger their lives, but other lives too. Over, and over again. Gee, I have nothing to offer in way of protection skills, but I'm going to insist on going into danger wi ...more
I’ve found a new crack obsession. My definition of crack is a crazy premise, an alien hero (different color and/or unusual appendages are a MUST), a tried and true romance formula and a fascinating ‘verse that captures my interest. Boy, has the Dragons of Tajss delivered. Does it have its flaws? Yep. Do I give a flying zemjla? Nope, not even a little bit.
A mishmash of different fantasy/sci-fi components that we’ve seen in shows from Dr. Who to Beetlejuice, this is a series that goes ...more
Like, she's supposed to be smart and she is supportive of Callie for the most part, but she's also kind of anti-social and, as a scientist, I felt like she should have understood the ramifications of not ...more

HOLD ON TO YOUR DRAGONS AND GET READY FOR A WALK THROUGH THE DESERT OF TAJSS!!!!
This is the second book in the Red Planet Dragons of Tajass series by Miranda Martin and Juno Wells. I didn’t get to read this book as an ARC so I had to buy it. Which I didn’t mind because I love this series and Miranda Martin and Juno Wells are very good writers/authors. I l ...more
This planet is not an enjoyable setting at all, but I like how it brings all these couples together in the fight for survival and love. Jolie is an interesting character because her personality is happy and hopeful. No matter what, she's pretty chipper. She makes it easy for the reader to be in her head. That being said, some things didn't make too much sense, like:
1: Why would Jolie go by herself to check on some box outside the city when s ...more
I also found Jolie to be a bit annoying at the beginning. She complains about her best friend's happiness so much and talks about her jealousy so much that it makes you question whether its Sverre that she loves or if she would have loved any old alien dragon man that came along becau ...more
So I thought the author had made a serious mess up on her timeline in the preview I read at the end of book one for this book but turns out I was wrong so anyways this book was pretty much the same as the first Jolie gets saved by the alien man who is infatuated with her and they end up falling in love and getting pregnant...I found myself skimming through a good bit of the book reading only the parts where they were actually talking because I ...more

Was Jolie a bit too gung ho about marching into danger? Maybe, but I enjoyed her confidence and willingness to back up her man. An insta-love story with a lot of action and intrigue. This was a well-developed story li ...more
3 & 1/2 stars rounded up.
This held my attention, but there were a few hiccups in the story that kind of hurt the enjoyment factor for me. Jolie and Sverre are an odd pair, compared to the couple in book 1. I wanted to like Jolie but she was just so convinced that she needed an alien man to be happy, that I felt like she would just settle for any alien man or the first one that comes along, so I instantly didn't like her for that reason. It also made the relationship be ...more
This is the first book I’ve read of this series and probably the last. I like the concept, if she hadn’t “ended ( and I use the term loosely)” the book like she did, I may have been tempted to read more. If you can deal with a stunted ending, this is a good book. But she literally built you up for a fight and then instead of the fight she writes a sex scene. She cleared the way for several storylines but she just built up this one and dropped the ball like a lead balloon.
On a rugged alien planet it's all about survival. The crashed humans have been led to the alien city and while several struggle to get the old but more advanced technology running again one lone female braves the outside. She stumbles into another dragon based alien in her dehydrated state and he whisks her away. He has knowledge they need back in the city, she doesn't know if he will help though.
The first one was awesome and adventurous. This one dragged on and for a leader he seems ignorant. I felt like I was slow moving and I wanted to get to the point. By the time the book was 3/4 read I felt like finally we are getting somewhere. Jolie is self centered and ridiculous and I'm surprised she is even friends with Calista. But hey y hat is another story. Overall this was ok
Trying to rebuild the city, hunt for food and find a way to grow food in this hot almost barren land is first priority.
Jolie's rescuer is another dragon man, they don't speak each others language, but find ways to communicate. More danger in on the horizon as slaves land on this planet.
I would have given 5 stars except for editing. ...more
This 2nd book in this series is Jolie's story. She decides to do 2 life treating things. First she doesn't take the epis and second she leaves the city alone and doesn't tell anyone she's leaving. This could have been the end if not for Sverre finding and saving her from herself. Good read.
This is Jolie and Sverre’s book. They face the same challenges as the characters in the first book. I enjoyed it but was wanting something a little different in this one. The shock from the first book (the wreck, dragon aliens and different body parts)was completely missing from this one.
