String heroine but work/thriller plot took priority over romance which was draaaagged out.

A SMOKING HOT, gripping ride that shows no signs of slowin' down!

I LOVE THIS STORY. This is one of the few books I've read, knowing it's part of a trilogy. I usually avoid them, but I just knew a book written by this awesome duo would be worth hanging on for!

And I was RIGHT!!!

The story begins with an incredibly heart-tugging event that had me wondering how the story would play out. I was given a big hint at the beginning, and once I caught on to where this arrangement was heading, I couldn't wai

This is the first book that I have read by Liza Street but I have read plenty of Keira Blackwood, so I knew I was going to like this book too. Bonus is that it is a RH, my favorite genre right now. I really enjoyed the fact that this was not a insta-love story line. Some may get upset that there is not a instant relationship between Airiana and the guys, but others may appreciate the fact that the relationships evolve naturally. I can not wait to see what is in store for the next book in the ser ...more

When the talents of two remarkable authors are combined to bring us a trilogy like Shattered Souls you should expect something amazing. I’ve followed both Keira Blackwood and Liza Street for some time now. Both bring well defined stories, interesting characters and sizzling sexy moments to their readers through their various series. I’ll be frank and say that I hesitated before picking up Dragon Shattered. I am not a reverse harem fan. I’ll be quite honest about that, ev
This book was so, so good. The characters and their relationships with each other were amazing, and the plot was fun and exciting. I really recommend it.

Dealing with the inexplicable

Dragon Shattered is billed as a reverse harem dragon fantasy romance. Author Keira Blackwood certainly knows how to write some very steamy, sexy scenes involving some delicious dragon shifters, and her tale of loss and second-chance romance times three is touching, tender, and hot. She even manages to make perfect sense of the heroine's attraction to not just one, but three brave, smart, and strong dragon shifters. (No more deets - no spoilers!) However, there's a lo

Ariana is a dragon shifter, 25 years ago she lost her mate Marc, in the Lotus War. She never thought her heart could care let alone love anyone else. She created Whitesong Security, it was Marc's dream, and they are one of the best. They do more than security they donate to good causes. With the business growing, and a new client that is demanding more security for the huge auction he just hired her for, Ari may finally need to hire a partner. When her assistant and friend Maisie, sets up three ...more

My first reverse harem and I'm enthralled! There is sadness and pain of course, there must be for healing to take place. Ariana is a strong woman and will persevere through her trials - but not without a measure of sorrow plus confusion over the three shifters who have become her partners in her security business. Slade, Quenton and Taylor present themselves as they vie for the partnership and ultimately, for Ariana's affection/love. In the midst of all this, they are hired to protect the relics ...more

This is a great read. Ariana lost her mate 25 years ago in the Lotus War. It was Marc's desire to fight to keep those that couldn't fight for themselves safe. Ariana has been doing that through her company, Whitesong Security. She has taken on the client from hell, who is holding an auction of extremely rare items from the Lotus War. She decides it's finally time to hire a partner to help with the company. Her best friend and assistant, Maisie, is in charge of finding candidates. I loved Maisie, ...more

This is a different kind of Reverse Harem and I like it! Oh, there are three guys. Three hot guys. Three really hot guys. One gorgeous, professional, lonely woman. Her mate was killed in a war years ago. She has lost herself in her business to honor him with the charities the security company supports. She finds herself overwhelmed and needs help with all of the decisions. The three hotties all interview for the position. Ariana is now overwhelmed with the desires she feels for--all three of the ...more

Dragon Shattered by Keira Blackwood and Lisa Street is their first book in the Spellbound Souls series. It is a reverse harem dragon fantasy romance.

I devoured this story in not even 8 hours and need the next book ASAP! this is my first book by Keira Blackwood but she is now permanently on my radar. her writing style flowed incredibly well. The story grabs you and pulls you in to the point you dont want to let go. You get to learn more about each character and see different aspect through each characters eyes.

First let me state, I received an Advance Reader Copy, (ARC), but this in no way influences my review. I always leave an honest review. Also, this is my first time with these authors, and hopefully it won't be my last.

Holy shiznet!!! This story was gr8. I cried at the prologue. Ariana is strong woman. To lose her mate should have killed her, but she carried on. Her BFF, Maisie, is awesome. She's a perfect friend and assistant for Ari. Taylor, Slide, & Quentin are all perfect for her. I love

2.5 stars. I understood the premise for this book but I ended up feeling dissatisfied. This does not have my HEA I want at the end. Though I liked the descriptive writing I didn’t feel any real connection between Ariana and the men. I also couldn’t understand Ariana being with them individually and not all together. I thought this was a ménage romance.
The business side of the story was hit and miss as there is no explanation of why something is happening.

This is a solid 3.5 star read,
Being the first book in the series I am going to take it that some of the loose ends from the book will be carried over and hopefully resolved. I really loved how everything was so descriptive, you really got to know most the characters well apart from well Ariana you got the gist of how she feels torn about wanting all the guys and still thinking of her past and if she is ready to move on, but you don't get to really see her build the connection with the guys like

I am a big fan of both of these authors so I was excited to read this collaboration. I am happy to say that it was everything I expected it to be. The story is a lot more than just a RH. There is an interesting UF plot that I hope gets filled out more, but I am looking forward to following it to its conclusion. There are plenty of smokin" scenes, and the romance is easy to accept and become invested in, but this is a series so there isn't a true HEA ending. The ending was a comfortable place to ...more

Hot Damn.

Supernatural. Rh. 3 Dragon shifters. Mate bond. Strong, fierce, giving, bad ass heroine. Ari lost her mate in a territory war. Since she has no interest in males at all, not untill she meet three dragon shifters applying for partnership at her security firm. This story goes on a bit more than it should with the plot but it makes up with bonding time with the guys. Its like it wants to UF and romance but its needs more structure. I LOVED the guys brotherhood bond that they have. I'll be

This story is filled with such gripping emotion, including grief, humor, and even the new stirrings of love as four Dragon shifters come together and learn to work together, as well as entrancing their lives with no jealousy in sight. There is action and enough drama to keep the story going strong. It draws you in and holds you like a lover on a Saturday night. I look forward to the next book in this series....

Dragons are my favorite type of shifter and I usually read anything I can get my hands on about them. This is a brilliant book. I loved how these 3 dragon men came together (you'll love how that happens) not really knowing why but being okay with loving the same woman. Ariana has had a broken heart for years since her mate died and being attracted to three at once is quite confusing. I love the characters and world building in this series and can't wait for the next book!

I loved how the beginning and the very end connect in this story. The end was great and now I can’t wait for book two to see how things will go. One woman who lost her soulmate twenty five years ago. But now she is falling for three men and is torn on how to feel about it. And since they all are dragon shifters anything is possible. Add in some bad guys and the detective work that must be done and you have an exciting and very romantic story.

As I started to read this book the did a great job of incorporating real world and fantasy. Even though I received this as a free copy via Booksprout & am voluntarily leaving a review. Since this is a book of dragon might I add smoking hot ones pun intended. The genre is right up my literature heart, so if dragon sifters are what you like to read. Do you like fast,steady romance that starts right away and just builds till the very end. Choose this book.
