*I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*
I really wanted to like this. It has an intriguing premise–a dragon shifter thousands of years old falling in love with a human–but it did not work on paper. The main characters were not believable as three dimensional characters, and the narrative was off. Characters’ reactions felt stilted, and there was too much telling going on and not enough showing. Don’t even get me started on the villains (the first one introduced was described as a black man; I mean, really?).
