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

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

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.

I absolutely LOVED Harry!! I loved Ev too but holy shit he was so rude to poor Al. The two of them together was adorable and heartwarming; and the nick names!!! I liked this book so much better than the first one and couldn’t put it down. The secondary characters were fun to read about and I never got bored. In conclusion is was utterly and adorably perfect

Reread 6/21
Ahhh loved as much as the first time!!! Was Ev a bit rude? Yes but I think that’s just siblings for you. I know I’m a duck to my l

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

ETA: Felt like having a re-read of this and chose the audio this time around, and I just love it just as much. Maybe more, listening to it again. Harry's voice is just beyond precious and I love how Michael narrates him.

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 thi

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

Ha! What fun!

And I liked the slightly more ‘serious’ feel to Harry and Ev’s story.
Saying that, this is still very humorous and on the light side of reading.

Ev’s habit of using food vocabulary for addressing people is hilarious (‘lettuce leaf’ is one of my top favourites, the author must have had a ball with this!), and it’s even funnier when he’s using them for terms of endearment.
Harry’s endless rambling of questions (not unlike a toddler) might have been a tad much for me to start with, but I

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

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.

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

I love them even more 😭😭😭

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).

Tenderloin, pork chop, crumpet...

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

A Joyfully Jay review.

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

Same rating as before. I just love Harry and Ev's dynamic, its so cute and nerdy haha.


Still the same as before Harry is such a sweet innocent character that you just wanna squeeze!

Can’t wait to read about Perry now that the audiobook is out!

I enjoyed this I think more than the first Harry is such a sweet and innocent character you just want nothing bad to happen to him.

This timeline is almost parallel to the first book, you see some of the same major even

I don’t know what I was expecting from this, but Everard turned out to be such a sweetheart, and definitely perfect for Harry. Can’t wait to see how their hypothesis will be proven in Geoffrey’s book 😊😊

The fun continues in this, the second installment of the dragons version of The Young and the Restless. So many distinct alpha males in the Amethyst family. So many stories yet to be told. Here we have Everard, the doctor. I will say Everard didn't pull me as much as Alistair in the first book. He's a little too cocky, and mean to his brother Alistair. You can let go of the shitty commentary at this point Dear Author, we get it. Alistair was the runt of the litter. Move on. Everard loves Harry t ...more

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

This second installment makes me howl with laughter. I have never read such a clueless and naive person like Harry. Omg. How did he even survived for so long in this world is a mystery.
The timeline in Bond is almost parallel to Clutch, so we get to see what happened between Harry and Everard while Nate was nesting with his eggs.
Prior to reading this, I thought Harry's behavior is too OTT, he seems too enthusiastic about everything dragon and his verbal diarrhea can be tiring. As for Everard, I
Everard slowly grew on me...he's a tad abrasive but his food-based nicknames for Harry won me over (clementine, pork-pie, tenderloin, crumpet, pot-sticker, dumpling...etc).

It was cute how he would get offended when people thought his dragon was pink.

Harry is just adorable with his un-tainted view on the world. He was pretty much asexual until he met Ev and is so blunt with all his questions.

I liked how the events overlap with book 1

Piper Scott debuted as a trio of authors looking to write together for fun. Their collaboration led to three novella-length books (Love Me, Save Me, and Keep Me,) before life sent them in different directions, leaving just one author with an omegaverse plot bunny that wouldn’t leave her alone. Obey was born several months later… but the plot bunny never left—it multiplied.
