Story Overview:
He spent more than a thousand years imprisoned in hell…

Drake is an ancient dragon shifter, one of the most powerful beings in existence, but a millennium trapped in utter darkness has left him ill-equipped for modern society. If it wasn’t for Victoria, the sweet female brave enough to befriend him, he’d be lost. She’s smart and gorgeous and everything he never dared dream of during his years of agonizing loneliness. He may not have anything to offer her, but one thing he knows for sure: he’d die to keep her safe.

Only to fall into the heaven of her touch.

Victoria is a wolf shifter, healer of the Stavros pack. She’s seen a lot, but she’s never met anybody quite like Drake, the fiery, fascinating shifter who can blaze through the skies unseen by mere mortals. He’s lost, dangerous, and the last male she should fall in love with, but the more time she spends helping him navigate modern life, the deeper—and hotter—their connection becomes. She’s thrilled when they finally locate his family, but reuniting with his people plunges them both into unimaginable danger. It’s a race against the clock trying to figure out who wants them dead and who they can trust, especially when the threat is closer than they ever imagined.

My Review:
Overall: 4.5
Performance: 4.75
Story: 4.25

Drake's story is just one of those that's perfect for a hero that you absolutely fall head over heels in love with. Sent to hell at the age of 12, he's spent the last 1500 years there. He knows virtually nothing of the world or dragon shifters (which he is one of). He has no memory of how he got there or what happened before being sent there. It's obvious he's been traumatized by the time spent there...did you catch that...1500 years?!?!?

So, yeah, he's a little bit messed up. But from the moment he sees Victoria, he knows that she's his. It doesn't matter that she's a wolf shifter. He's connected to her. 

But the best thing about Drake is that he's this vulnerable, wounded guy at the same time he's seriously tough and alpha and so much...just sexy male. Yum! I loved him and watching him love Victoria...yeah, it just made me happy.

I'm really loving this series and love that there's so many books of it out. I need to go grab book #3 now and download it onto my iPod because I adore Katie Reus's shifters. She writes some sexy shifters and I'm quickly falling in love with all of them. 

BTW, you can read any of these books as stand-alones.
