These were cute stories; light and fluffy for the most part. The series (I can tell) is going to suffer heavily from the 'formulaic romance' issue but regardless, they were funny at times so I will continue on.

My only real complaint was that the transition between basic plot and steamy moments was really abrupt. So much so that the feel of the story's narrative style shifted gears and turned a corner. One minute, you were enjoying learning about the characters and a bit about the dragon 'world', the next you were being inundated with really coarse phrasing and gutter language. It had the feel of young teen boys trying out their 'hey baby' lines. Very juvenile leaps and a lot of 'f'-bomb dropping...was meant to be sexy but just is NOT.

Cute idea but I can't give it more than 2 stars.
