Grigori, A Royal Dragon Romance, Lauren Smith

Grigori: A Royal Dragon Romance (Brothers of Ash and Fire) by [Smith, Lauren]

Genre:  Romance

I liked the sound of this but though I enjoyed it, I found it a bit light and fluffy, a little too predictable.
Not sure I’ll continue with the series but first books do have  a hard ask, telling a story, introducing characters and a new world so maybe I’m just a bit harsh…

Madelyn, she’s a professor but….doesn’t seem to have too much common sense, or self preservation. “ok this guy says he’s a dragon and…well, I’ve always had an interest in dragons and he won’t hurt me…” She doesn’t know him but not only does she fall into insta-lust with him but she trusts him incredibly quickly.
Grigori, two thousand years old, (or possibly three – both ages get a mention) but makes some stupid mistake that made me wonder how in earth he’d survived that long.

He wants the book back, seemed a pretty poor hiding place to me. I know there’s the “hidden in plain sight” thing but so much of it was out of his control there, given it was so crucial not to let humans see it. Still, he’s ready to seduce it out of Madelyn. Except he doesn’t need to do much in the way of that….
I had high hopes for his secretary, I do love those vengeful, jealous characters but it came to nothing really in this book, maybe the next one 😉

It’s a good storyline, but was all a bit too quick, too neat as to problems and solutions, and too simple/light for me to rate higher than 3.
Maybe the next books will get a bit more solid, bit more depth but of course there will be readers who love this just as it is.

Stars: Three, a read that’s easy to get in to, but just too light for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
