**** I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy ****

This is such a great short story. Reluctant Dragon Mate follows Dakota and Achilles on their mating bond. who would have thought of a dating app for paranormals. Yes, you get the sense during the book how paranormals are looking for their mates. What could happen if they deny their bond, or if they choose someone who lengthwise mate to later find them. The struggle that paranormals go through and the pressure out on themselves.

Reluctant Dragon Mate is a fabulous, fun and flirty addition to Laura Greenwood’s Paranormal Council Universe.

Dakota’s life changes after after swiping right while searching for a new date on the app - MatchMater. But things change quickly when she realises that she’s actually met her mate.

Will a witch and a dragon be a good match?’ll just have to read it to see what happens.

This stand-alone paranormal story with a dash of contemporary, is definitely a must read and a new

Sweet, fun, and a dragon!!!

I really enjoyed this sweet tale of a dragon meeting, and fearing the pull of, his mate. The characters were good, the plot was fun, and I see myself rereading this one!

Dakota pulled out her phone and looked for the Matchmater App. She had been stood up, so she was going to go back to using this App and see if she could find someone. Something seemed to be spurring her on to find a certain someone special. She found a dragon shifter who had disheveled black hair and a mischievous grin – not her type but without a second thought, she swiped right and was instantly matched! He typed in complete sentences, which impressed her; and he flirted back and forth with ...more

This was a very easy to read book! The main characters were so likeable!! I love witch stories, and this did not disappoint. I love the idea of fated mates and of course dragon shifters are so interesting! Achilles was a bit blind to his fate but given the fact that he strived so hard to avoid his precog, that's not surprising at all. The grandmother was a very nice addition to this!! I confess to being confused... I thought that Achilles knew she was situated so close to him because she was ...more

Fighting Mated Feelings
by Korkoi

Dakota was looking for her mate but had only been meeting duds, until she met Achilles for a booty-call. Unfortunately, even though they each believed they were fated mates, their stubbornness and misunderstandings, nearly caused them to miss out on their happily ever after. There is a bit of drama, some partying and the wisdom of a wise old lady, that makes the story quite interesting. What I took away from this story, is that not everything is what it appears to

Lauren really nailed this baby 100% on point with all of the blazing emotions melding this baby together piece by piece. An awesome storyline and gripping plot kicks this baby up a few steps on the hot charts.

I really liked the idea of shifters using a dating app to try to find their mate. It is the age of technology after all and even dragons have to keep up with the times! The personalities of Dakota and Achilles really came through in the book and I felt like they were individuals I could encounter during the course of a regular day. So glad Dakota kept her strong, confident persona all the way to the end and that Achilles was able to overcome his past and learn to trust his feelings for her. The ...more

This is a great beginning to a new series by Ms. Greenwood. Dakota is a witch that does not do well in the dating game. After being stood up, she decides to go for a hookup. Achilles is a dragon shifter that does not do "relationships". When they meet there is a spark that neither one recognizes. I loved how close Achilles is with his grandmother and how she is his voice of reason. This is such a fun and touching love story. Laura Greenwood has done it again with a fantastic romance story.

“Reluctant Dragon Mate” is a light, easy Saturday paranormal fantasy read. I love that it’s not the usual fated mates' story and it wasn’t a smooth road. Grandma was the star of this book, we all need that sage advice sometimes. Dakota and Achilles were likable, independent and interesting characters. Laura Greenwood has given us a well-crafted, light-hearted, enjoyable storyline with a heroine who is independent and knows her worth and a mate who is smart enough to realize it before it’s too ...more

This is such a sweet story about two people over-coming their own issues to start their mated relationship. The story starts off with Dakota being stood up and ends with her meeting the mate of her dreams. I quite enjoyed the short story and eagerly cheered Dakota on the entire way.

fun quirky and romantic

Loved this book from the feisty witch to the doting granny I couldn't put it down. Very well written with a terrified hero, a feisty " take no nonsense " heroine and dragon granny to steer them through the murky waters of mating ( after all it is her fault the waters are murky in the first place ) An easy read that is perfect for a romance story without too much drama or excessive "heat "

This is another great book I have read by Laura Greenwood and it is amazing! The storyline was engaging and kept my interest as well as the drama, twists, mistakes and emotional turmoil that created tension for the couple. Dakota and Achilles are both strong characters and that made for a well balanced couple. Meeting through a Matchmater App for paranormal, the attraction between the two simmered along nice as they engaged in a chemistry that was steamy and hot.

This story was quick and easy to read. An entertaining dragon shifter and witch romance. Achilles and Dakota meet off of a mate matching website. After their night together, she realizes that they are mates. But her dragon mate is extremely reluctant to believe it because of some precog's prophecy about Achilles and his fated mate. Well, thank goodness, the problem is resolved in a happy ever after ending.

Dakota is a witch, and has been looking for her mate on a dating app. When she swipes yes to Achilles, and he comes and spends the night, she knows there is something there - but he denies the connection because of a prophecy given to his Grandmother centuries ago.
But fate wont be beaten - and with his Grandmother's help, he works to convince Dakota that he is sorry and ready to accept that he is her mate. A gorgeous story, with a beautiful ending!

Reluctant Dragon Mate by Laura Greenwood is a shifter romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Hannah Somerville.

I just love Laura’s Books! They always leave me begging for more. I cannot wait until the second book in the series Bewitched Incubus Mate is released on audible. The MatchMater Paranormal Dating Agency App series can be read as a stand-alone and our part of the Paranormal Council Universe.

Hannah did a great job on the narration. I can’t wait to listen to more projects that
