What happens when a beast of a dragon meets his feisty mate?

Riley Strickland didn’t know much about the dragons rising out of the Louisiana Bayou. Very few people knew. She only found out when her jet fighter team got scrambled to shoot those fire-breathing lizards down before they laid waste to New Orleans. The mission doesn’t go according to the plan though, and it’s

I received this book for free and am giving my honest and voluntary review.

Victor, a genuinely honest and fair man, stands in line to become the next leader of the Prometheus Crest, an order of chemically changed people called the New Breed. He becomes involved with a Navy pilot, Riley Strickland, and saves her life as she becomes New Breed after an encounter with Victor and his New Breed dragons.

Welcome to a new shifter world
Victor (Anarock Shifters Book 1) by Romi Hart is a well written introduction to her new paranormal series full of a variety of shifters. While the main focus appears to be dragons, Romi has created a complete community of amazing and diverse beings.
Victor is an absolute alpha and in line to inherit the role of leader. Riley is extremely smart, resourceful and a force to be reckoned with. Once these two get passed their self-inflicted antagonism, their bond becomes

This was a decent book. I'm not really into shifter books but I do enjoy this author. Riley is in the military and she is taking part in taking out the dragons. Which have been taking over. However, it isn't until she crashes that she finds out this whole thing is lot more complicated than she thought. Especially, after she meets Victor. Needless to say, he turns her world upside down.

Interesting New Shifter World
I like the premise of this story quite a bit, and the tension between Navy pilot Riley and dragon shifter Victor is absolutely palpable whether they're fighting with each other or giving in to their fates. They're both intelligent, brave, and stubborn as mules. But they sure come from different worlds.

The pace was great, and kept me going to see what could possibly happen next with this crazy bunch of creatures and the military men/women they fought. The only thing I

Steamy, tumultuous, dangerous, explosive and that’s just their relationship :-)
This is the first of at least three paranormal stories which take place in Anarock, a hideaway for New Breed shifters who have been turned by contaminated water. The only problem I had with this story was that it made our military the bad guys. I would have felt better if Ms. Hart had mercenaries be the army of bad guys. After all our military takes orders, not commits crimes just because…

Raging! Romi blows through like a thief in the night, blazing a path so luscious and thrilling, running rampant, riding roughshod with such unbridled gusto, mixing it up and propelling this little gem to life beautifully. Seizing the moment, traversing the trials and tribulations, revving up a bounty of plot twists and sleek turns, fusing this baby together flawlessly.

I just had a total binge-fest (yes, including an all-nighter; my sweetie is very annoyed with me) reading Victor, Bryce and Elliot, the first three books of Romi Hart’s Anarock Shifters series. I’ve read (lots and lots of) romances by this author which I’ve always enjoyed. It was great seeing her expand into the paranormal, and even better that these books featured dragon shifters, a particular favorite of mine. Gotta day that she did a fantastic job with the world-building and paranormal ...more

Riley is a navy jet pilot she is supposed to take the dragons out before anyone outside the military knows about their existence. When her team starts losing Riley ejects from her jet and lands in the toxic stuff and tries to get out of it. But the dragons find her before she can get free and take her back to where they came from because she is changing from what she was into something else. What will Riley do now that she isn't normal anymore? What will this mean for her and Victor?

Victor and Riley’s story is interesting. Riley is a military pilot and is supposed to get rid of the shifters. Her plane gets shot down and she ejects and goes into the bayou.

Victor saves her. His clan is against it. Riley doesn’t understand what the water she drank in the bayou has done to her. She has now become a shifter herself.

Can Riley learn to live like them? Will she find love with Victor? Will she help destroy them all or help save them? You will have to read to find out.

Falling For Family Love:
By Korkoi -

Wow! That was a really intense and thrilling story, that kept me hesitant of where the story was taking me, but I still wanted more intrigue and just couldn’t stop reading. The chemistry between Victor and Riley was like a thunder strike coursing though a human body and mesmerised me. The way they fought like cat and dogs, but still couldn’t keep their hands off each other, should have given them a hint of what was in store for their future. This book should

I could not set this one down

Riley, an Air Force fighter pilot, encounters Victor, a dragon mutant, in a Louisiana swamp. As the story progresses unexpected changes occur, a choice has to be made, and living with the consequences could be dangerous. Romi Hart’s foray into the paranormal could not get much better. There are relatable characters, realistic and easily envisioned settings, and the action she sets throughout the book is quite the ride and I could not set this one down.

This is a well written book with strong characters and an interesting and adventurous story line. The author does a great job bringing the story to life with her descriptive scenes and pulls you in with an action packed story filled with twists and turns and had me glued to the pages reading. It's the first book in the series and has me looking forward to what comes next.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. All opinions in this review are my own and freely given.

Excellent and unique paranormal romance. I’m not use to reading such paranormal stories by Ms. Hart. There were times I felt the story dragging but it took time for Victor and Riley to come to understand their connection. At first I didn’t like Victor but over time learned why he felt the way he did. I received a complementary copy of this book and chose to write a review. I look forward to reading future books by Ms. Hart.

They hated each other through the whole book!

This was awful! They literally hated each other through this whole story! And they weren't shy about shouting it out to each other in front of anyone. I like sex in my romances but the descriptions during the scenes were so crude- her sauce, his tool, the 'c' word, and it got worse! And there was crazy plot mentions. Supposedly, it all happened because of a toxic leak but then at one point it says something about it going on for a hundred years!

The main female character is Riley, a pilot for the army. Her life completely changes after an accident and she meets Victor, a dragon shifter, and other mutants. The whole story is an adventure and a journey for Riley who has to adapt to this new life and make some hard choices. Her relationship with Victor is explosive and draws us in. Great characters, great story.
ARC review for honest review.

Good read

This was a thrilling story, my only problem was some of the wording. It made me think either a teen or an elder person wrote it. Example : stick, prick, package we all no what it refers to. Everyone I read that it through me off there were other words to but that is a bit childish.

They have a love hate relationship going on. She's a pilot and he's a dragon. This action packed story draws you in. Riley was suppose to bring Victor down but ends up along side the dragons. As their time together lengthens, so does their feelings. Will there be a happily ever after for these two? I voluntarily agreed to receive an ARC of this book for an honest review.

Great start to a new series. Riley is an Air Force pilot and when she is sent out to shoot down the dragons, she is shot down instead and saved by Victor. Can two enemies work together to save the world? Fast-paced read with great characters and lots of drama. I liked it.
