A dating app from supernaturals. When finding your true mate is the only lasting connection you can make it makes dating hard. Dakota wants a little fun and is using a dating app to make it happen. After her night with a dragon shifter she can’t get him out of her head. The Reluctant dragon mate is about believing in love and taking a risk.

I’ve listened to a few books narrated by Hannah Somerville. She has a quick speaking, clear voice and good vocal range.

This is a quick read with a couple to

It's not that strange that I don't feel like reading big books right now. I just wanna distract myself and read something light that makes me laugh. So, when I was looking through all the dragon e-books I had gathered during the last few months, I found this one and knew right away that this was the right book. I mean, what can go wrong with a Laura Greenwood? I haven't read one that disappointed me and didn't read a heavy one either.

And this book was exactly what I had thought it would be. I st

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. Dak

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 favourite

After another encounter, Achilles leaves for a week. Dakota believes that they are mates but will not chase him if he doesn't want to found. Will Achilles realize his mistake and make things work between them?

Sweet, fun, and a dragon!!!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review, and loved it so much I bought it.

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!

This is a quick little love story. Boy meets girl, they tumble in the sheets, boy is an idiot and turns away. Boy realizes he’s an idiot and well , will he win the girl? Read to find out.

Cute little paranormal romance. The characters meet on a dating app, have a one night stand and then can’t stop thinking about each other. Of course the male pushes her away until the end but it all works out in the end.

Reluctant Dragon Mate () the first in the “MatchMater Paranormal Dating App” series (say that three times fast (laugh)) by Laura Greenwood and is a fun read.

Oddly enough Achilles is my favorite character in this story and I think it is because of his relationship with his grandmother. (Yeah, everyone go “awwww” now. I’m a sucker for that storyline.) I think their relationship is great and it showcases Achilles personality perfectly. I will admit to being avidly curious as to what he looks like

This is a hilarious story about Dakota and Achilles, a witch and a dragon shifter. They both have been trying to use MatchMater to possibly find their mates. Achilles is terrified to find his mate, but Dakota is excited and trying to find hers. They are matched one night, and they both make a crazy choice to meet up. The rest of the story focuses on the mayhem and the stubbornness that ensues after.

This is another fun story from Laura Greenwood! She is a great writer! For the audiobook: Hannah

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.

I loved this book, it was an entertaining short read, full of romance, heartbreak and happy ending. Dakota and her familiar were both fun to read about, Achilles was frustrating and his grandmother a hoot! I will definitely be following this series, and can't wait to see who gets matched next!

I love the idea of a paranormal dating app. It makes for such a fun addition to the Paranormal Council Universe, which I always enjoy coming back to. I love the characters and their reactions when they realized who their one night stand was.

This was cute, light hearted and quick to read. Cotton candy for your romance loving needs.

Not sure what else to say as its pretty standard fare in terms of paranormal romances, with some banter and fade to black sexiness (this is a PG-13 at most).

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 he ...more

I enjoyed this short story by Laura Greenwood. The concept was adorable (matefinder apps) and Dakota was awesome (so was her familiar!!). Achilles needed to get his out of his butt, which thankfully he finally did. I especially liked his grandmother who had to knock some sense into his head.

The narration was good, especially Hannah's portrayal of his grandma. I did put the speed up a little because she was a little too slow for me. I did think her laughter was perfect when it specifically calle

She sees Achilles profile and swipes right and sends him a message. He sends one back and he ends up coming over to Dakota's house. Achilles has feelings for Dakota that he has never had for anyone before. He is reluctant to even think of her as his mate because of something that was said to him years ago. He can't s ...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!!

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
