Adorably naive and shockingly brilliant Harrison Lessardi only needs two things in life: his pet iguana, Steve, and his undying love of science. That is until he witnesses his best friend lay eggs, and a third must-have strolls into his apartment—the sardonic and mischievous Everard Drake.

Everard Drake, celebrated doctor of the tremendously wealthy Drake family, has one

Reread: 6th August 2019

This was my favorite book when I read it and it’s still my favorite in the series when I did a reread by listening. Michael Ferraiuolo added a whole new depth to my favorite Dragon Mpreg book. Just spectacular! 😍

Original review: Edited version

I loved Nate and Alistair’s love story but I knew that I’d fall head over heels in love with Harry’s story. 😁 I mean the inquisitive, innocent and quirky Harry and his pet iguana Steve! And a snarky, impatient but super handsome Drag

Reread for the pure joy of just re-reading it. If possible, I loved it even more this second time.
This was my original review -

All you need to know is....
1. I gave 5* to book 1. This is better.
2. Everard and Harry have already headed up my 2019 Favourite Couples List.
3. Everard’s endearments and quick wit were total winners for me.
4. Harry! O.M.G. Harry!!!!
5. No rotten eggs in Harry’s nest, or even scrambled eggs for brains (but Everard could be pretty hardboiled at times), I just wan

Audio – 5 +++ Star! Masterful performance by Michael Ferraiuolo!!
Story – 4.5 omega-beta stars!! Round up for Harry

Harry gets all the stars!! OMG! Talk about a genius who is beyond adorable and clueless. He'll drive you crazy, but at the same time, he’s irresistibly loveable! He's side kick, Steve, gets the love too.

This story was fluff at it’s best!!

To my Bestie, Lorraine, your deal breaker threat is null and void! I agree, BEST EVER!!! :-*
Well, well, well. I thought Everard was kind of douchey in book 1. I hated how he talked to Alistair or about him. So color me surprised when he won me over and I actually wanted him to fall for Harry his little crumpet, pot pie, lamb chop, creme brulee, sweet pea 😂. His names for Harry cracked me up.

Harry, oh sweet, naive Harry. No filter Harry. Adorable reptile loving Harry. What else can I say...he was the main reason I even picked this one up. I wanted him to get his egg and his eggy daddy.

Generally as I read a series I am always hopeful that each book improves as you go along. Often it's more of a bumpy ride, yet at times you get lucky. This is one of those times. I gave "Clutch" book one of this series 5 stars cuz it deserved it. This one gets 5 stars as well, but the authors have outdone themselves and created perfection! I had HUGE hopes for book two simply because one of its two main characters is Harry, who we met and I fell in love with not just because the authors did such ...more

Audiobook August 2019: 5 Stars for the narration!!! 4.5 Stars for the story!! And all the stars for #TeamSteve !!! I LOVED IT WAY MORE LISTENING TO THIS! Beware, lamb chop, this WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH OUT LOUD!!! I also love that we have an MC on the grey-ace spectrum (Harry)!!

Original review: Jan 2019–

I love this series!!

This dragon-shifter egg-preg romance parallels the story in book 1. Here we get to see Harry and Ev's story and it's delightful. And it's funny as hell!!

HARRY! <3 <3 <3 Harry is actually a cinnamon roll, no question about it. And I love him, will fight for him, and want to give him a big hug!

I’ve loved Ev and Harry since they were first introduced, so getting their full story has been just perfect. Harry is obsessed with all things dragon - after all, his studies are in reptiles. He’s full of questions and is very scientific in his approach to things. He’s delighted when he finds out that Everard is kidnapping him, and then when he gets to babys

Audio Review 31Dec2019: After listening to the last one I thought having Michael F narrating was a great choice. Listening to this one? It's a positively inspired decision. He gives Ev's scathing cuts the perfect amount of derision & makes his food-based nicknames for Harry even more adorable. Still loving Harry & Steve...and I want some of those outfits for my doggie!

Original Rating 02Mar2019: That extra star is all for Harry. I loved him. And Steve. OMG Steve. Adorable. Also, for Science.
Harry for President of the Draconian race!!

I’m really in love with this series, the story and narration are perfect and I am goo on the floor over Dragon babies 😭😭😭. Also second book is hilarious and I lived for what food Everard would call Harry because it seems he’s an encyclopedia of foodie endearments (my heart).

While I like certain aspects of this series, there is one thing that prevents me from really liking it, and that’s that I hate the dragon world/rules.

I hate how these dragons think having millions is being poor, and how they have to be billionaires to be able to have a mate and children. And I get that this has been the dragon council’s way of thinking for centuries, but I never felt as if the rest of the characters disagreed with them.

I noticed several times that Everard told people that he ha

OMG Everard's food related pet names for Harry are the best thing ever

I loved book one but this one was even better, this is six stars on my chart.

Harry is such a singularly beautiful character, he's innocent and adorable and frighteningly intelligent and scientifically minded.

Ev was the perfect mate for him and seeing him slowly be fascinated and drawn under Harry's spell was brilliant.

I'm also loving where this world building is going and eggs and whelps are the cutest things ever.

This is really a fun series and I am doing my damnedest to not take it seriously.

But Everard does not make it easy. He was hard to like in Clutch and I had a hard time shaking that feeling. He is much better in this one but he still bugs me and I can’t exactly figure out what it is.

Everyone seems to love Harry and yeah, I can totally see why. He just didn’t knock my socks off. He was really cute and he made me smile but he just seemed so freaking naïve to everything and I wonder how he has survi

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.25 stars

Bond is the second book in the Forbidden Desires series, following the really enjoyable Clutch. This book actually overlaps the timeline of that story almost completely, beginning when Nate lays his eggs and continuing until shortly after he gives birth. Some of the same events are touched upon, only from Harry or Everard’s POV, like when Harry witnesses Perry’s eggs hatch, but there is a lot of new story here as well. So I definitely think you will benefit from

How this author came up with so many different food endearments was entertaining. I was waiting for each new one thinking she was going to run out...she didn't lol
I really liked this one better than the previous. Harry is really sweet, quite naive and so endearing. Everard was a nice surprise. He was kind of a jerk in book 1 but his relationship with Harry really changed him, well at least to Harry. Let's not forget Steve and his awesome t-shirts. I lo

Well this was fun! I liked Harry and Ev's quirky relationship a lot better than Nate and Alister's. Also, Ev's endearment terms for Harry definitely gave me the munchies. LOL

This book was so much fun and I demand that Harry appear in every book in this series! He is possibly the sweetest, smartest yet most naïve, man I've read, but his willingness and joy at the thought of being eaten by a dragon for SCIENCE!? His stream of consciousness questioning of the world he stumbles into? He got me every time he opened his mouth. Everard's ridiculous yet hysterical series of pet names for Harry and his initial annoyance contrasted with the reverence with which he m

First and foremost this book was funny as hell, 6% in and I was laughing my was off. Harrison is such an innocent delight he really makes the book. And Everand's pets name for Harrison was ingenious.These two ladies put just the right mix of humor, sex and storyline to keep the pages turning. I am so ready for book 3 Mate Ian and Geoffrey. Let's see how the Drake clan deals with that love affair.

OMG ! This books was a gift 💝! I tell you !
I mean, I loved the book 1, and Nate with Alistair give me life, you know ? But Harrison is my son and Ev’ is the in-law I wanna slap and hug at the same time ! 🤷🏻‍♀️
So this book was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and I will not say it was my favorite of the two, because I think it was different and not the same too. See what I mean ? (Not me... 🤦🏻‍♀️)

What did I like?

Yes, yes, I know that's a komodo dragon but let's just pretend for a minute that it's actually an iguana. Steve, in particular.

Bond was a great follow-up and I loved getting to know more about Everard. Throughout Clutch, he always entertained me when he would pop up at the most inopportune times. He didn't disappoint me in this book, either! Although, I did get a little tired of the food nicknames. But it made it all the more special when he did use Harry's real name, which I think, is the poi

What a delighfully weird book. lol. I mean, of course it is expected to be a bit weird, it's about dragons and mpreg with thte emphasis on the eg(g). (view spoiler) And for that matter, whenever I have read other mm books with asexual/demisexual books, it is rarely very steamy, but this one totally was. And then there is Ev and his endless supply of nicknames. It was appallingly funny. ...more
