REVIEW:As a huge fan of Katie MacAlisters dragon series, I’m always on the look out for another dragon story that hooks me right at the start. Finally I found one that I couldn’t put down, it has suspenseful plot and two destined characters that had to figure out their complex lives to be together.
Luck of the Dragon follows Luciana de Luca, a smart woman with a PhD and well-known gemologist. She is the best of the best and is chosen to look over the new jewel exhibit in the Crown Jewel Casino. But this job is a little different since she is asked to steal from the casino owner to pay back her brothers debt to a dangerous man. What Luciana doesn’t know the owner Alec Gerald, a shape-shifting dragon, isn’t going to let her out of his sight too easily. He wants her and knows that she’s his destined mate and will do anything to be with her and save his dragon.
Lucy is a smart girl but makes all the wrong decisions when it comes to helping her brother. His selfish ways always seem to put her in a tough spot and could even cost her, her reputation. I thought it was sweet the way she always stood by her brother, even through all his mistakes. I just wished she let him learn from his mistakes and let her have a life. Overall I enjoyed every scene Lucy and Alec were in together, the pages were on fire and the chemistry was undeniable. There is a lot of tension between the two, which made for some entertaining scenes, to intense and worrisome scenes. In the end I felt like she really grew up and became a stronger woman.
Alec Gerald is one smoking hot shifter. His dragon is different than most as he is the leader of his kind. The main focus of the shifters is that their kind is rare, they need to find their mate to continue their lineage. It’s a romantic story that brings a lot of danger for Luce, she is pulled into a war and Alec’s world abruptly and unknowing to what is out there. He is a big charmer and I adored how much he pampered her and wanted to just be happy. The best parts were getting some background into the shifters and how the dragons live their lives.
Overall this was a great debut from Susannah Scott, I can’t wait to read more from her and I hope for more dragons! Her writing and character development was spot on for this genre, I always love that spark of romance and two character who are just meant to be. I however didn’t like Lucy’s brother and felt his presences was hurting Lucy’s strong character. The villain was interesting and sneaky, adding some complicated moments for Luce and Alec. Even the secondary character caught my interest and I hope to learn more about Lil. Nonetheless I have defiantly become a fan of Scott and love to see what happens next for Alec and Lucy, as well as the rest of the dragons.
RECOMMENDATION:This is an adult novel with sexual content meant for mature readers. Fans of Katie MacAlister’s Aisling Grey series and Deborah Cooke’s Dragonfire Novels will love Luck of the Dragon by Susannah Scott.
