#BookReview: Dragonfall (The Dragon Scales Trilogy #1) by @LR_Lam

Synopsis: The first in an epic fantasy trilogy from Sunday Times bestselling author L.R. Lam.

Long ago, humans betrayed dragons, stealing their magic and banishing them to a dying world. Centuries later, their descendants worship dragons as gods. But the 'gods' remember, and they do not forgive.

Thief Arcady scrapes a living on the streets of Vatra. Desperate, Arcady steals a powerful artifact from the bones of the Plaguebringer, the most hated person in Lumet history. Only Arcady knows the artifact's magic holds the key to a new life among the nobles at court and a chance for revenge.

The spell connects to Everen, the last male dragon foretold to save his kind, dragging him through the Veil. Disguised as a human, Everen soon learns that to regain his true power and form and fulfil his destiny, he only needs to convince one little thief to trust him enough to bond completely–body, mind, and soul–and then kill them.

Yet the closer the two become, the greater the risk both their worlds will shatter.

This title will be released on May 2, 2023.

#BookReview: Practice Makes Perfect (When in Rome #2) by Sarah Adams

Synopsis: When the owner of the local flower shop in Rome, Kentucky, makes a questionable agreement with a tattooed bad boy, a delightful friends to lovers romance begins to bloom--from the author of When in Rome and The Cheat Sheet.

Annie Walker is on a quest to find her perfect match-someone who nicely compliments her happy, quiet life running her flower shop in Rome, Kentucky. Unfortunately, she worries her goal might be too far out of reach when she overhears her date saying she is "sounbelievably boring." Is it too late to become flirtatious and fun like the leading ladies in her favorite romance movies? Maybe she only needs a little practice...and Annie has the perfect person in mind to become her tutor: Will Griffin.

Will--the flirtatious, tattooed, and absolutely gorgeous bodyguard--is temporarily back in Rome, providing security for Amelia Rose as excitement grows for her upcoming marriage to Noah Walker. He has one personal objective during his time in town: stay away from Annie Walker. But no sooner than he gets settled, Will soon finds himself not only breaking his rule, but tasked with far more than simply providing security.

Will wants no part in changing the sweet and lovely Annie, but he can't bring himself to say no to her request, so he officially agrees to teach her how to be the next leading lady of Rome, Kentucky, and find the love of her life-even if he doesn't believe in love himself. Between faking a relationship so the meddling town doesn't catch on to what's really happening on their practice dates, and tutoring lessons that convince Annie to add passion to her list of must-haves in a mate, it doesn't take long for the lines of their friendship to blur...

Jaci was the love of my life back in high school. We were going to conquer the world together. And then her family up and moved, and she was gone. No goodbye, no warning… nothing. It took a lot of booze and drugs to numb the pain and get me to the point where I could move on. And I did… move on, that is. Until one fateful night I screw up and my mission for the club goes horribly wrong, causing a lot of irrevocable damage.

The Soulless Kings’ issue me an ultimatum: go to rehab or have my patch removed. Neither is an option I’m interested in, but rehab is the lesser of two evils. Or so I thought… until I walk in to meet with the counselor and it’s a woman I thought I’d never see again. Now that she’s back, can I get clean or will I burn the world down just to avoid her?

My parents ripped me from the only life I knew and the boy I loved. All because, in their eyes, I committed the ultimate sin. But they made sure it was taken care of, and I walked away missing everything that made me a woman. I’ve always tried to look on the bright side,and this was no different. I used my pain to finally stand up for myself against my parents and make something of myself.

As a drug and alcohol counselor, I’ve helped a lot of people. I’ve also missed the mark with more than a few, but I learn from those clients and do better the next time. Until the next time is him, the boy I loved who is now a man with a coke habit. Once we both get over the shock of seeing each other again, all of my old feelings come rushing back. I loved him in high school, and I love him still. But can we get over all the hurt and pick up where we left off, or will we remain bitter and become angrier because of the two people who caused the most havoc?

A wounded bird, caught in a trap not of her own making, she posed no risk to me.
My obsessive desire to possess her was the real problem.
For both of us.
But now that I've seen her, tasted her lips, I can't let her go.
Whether she likes it or not, she needs my protection.

I'm doing this for her own good, yet she fights me at every turn.
Refusing the luxury I offer, desperately trying to escape my grasp.
I need to teach her to obey before the dark rumors of my past reach her.
Ruin her.

She cannot find out what I've done, not before I make her mine.
