Story Overview:
Fire Mate, Book One
Life isn’t easy for a modern-day dragon shifter. Unlike those wuss werewolves, dragons can’t just shift and go for a run through the nearest forest. They can’t go flying on a whim. Forget about scared villagers slinging arrows; these days it’s Neighborhood Watch zealots with AK-47s. Then there’s the whole sex issue. Try telling the little cutie at the local Starbucks that a soul-shattering orgasm might end in bed flambé.
No, being a dragon shifter kinda sucks. And for Tyson, it’s even worse—because he’s suddenly in heat. Bad news for the stranger he spies running along Bondi Beach. Ty instantly recognizes Sera as his mate. Now he has to convince her, while also dodging the psychopathic dragon hunter on his tail. Scorching sexual persuasion should do the trick. Hopefully. Because if Ty doesn’t join with his Fire Mate before his heat cycle finishes, bad things will happen. Lots of bad things.

My Review:
This was a book I picked up after I read an excerpt from the author on a blog (HERE's the link to Lexxie's blog and she has the excerpt posted). I am soooo glad that I got it and read it (actually, I have read this twice already....yes, it is that good!) This is a short little book...I am not sure on the word count, but I would guess somewhere around 35,000, so it doesn't take too long to read. But what is there is so awesome and so creative. I really love the premise of this book and the entire series.
Ty is a dragon shifter. He is shocked that, while sitting in a pizza joint eating, he is suddenly overcome by his Fire Mate Heat. It is caused by a random girl out running on the boardwalk whom he has never seen before. The issue with Fire Mate Heat is that he only has 12 hours to claim her as his mate before his dragon takes over completely...not long to convince a girl who has never seen you before to have sex...LOL. Oh and the entire time, he is fighting a raging, burning erection and the undeniable need to shift into his dragon form. It's a seriously HOT book. Ty is adorable in that he knows how crazy it is to be a dragon in the contemporary world and to expect this stranger to believe him. Sera was awesome in that she trusted her instincts and this crazy guy driving her to the sexual brink.
There are some interesting twists and turns that simply made this book. The entire book covers only about a 12 hour span of time, but Lexxie totally makes it work. The chemistry is there and undeniable. Simply a great premise for one HOT little book. I can't wait to see where she takes this series from here....
