Series: Sons of Beasts #3
Rating: 5 Stars
Official Blurb:Deep in a high security shifter prison dwells the most dangerous shifter in the world. Vyr Daye is the Red Dragon, alpha to the Sons of Beasts Crew, loner, watcher, fire-breather…and he’s also completely misunderstood. The media has dragged him through the mud, his reputation is shot, and his own father helped to put him in prison for a one-year sentence. Only this prison isn’t what it seems and he’s fighting to keep his dragon alive. All he needs to do is keep steady for six more months and then he can live his life as quietly as possible with his crew, but one sexy, fast-talking prison counselor saunters in and wrecks his focus. Riyah isn’t what she seems, but no one can sense her powers besides Vyr. He’ll keep her secrets if she keeps his. And as the dragon inside of him starts losing his battle, he’ll need her help to gather his crew and pull him from the brink before it’s too late. And the more he gets to know the beguiling woman, the more he thinks she’s here for more important reasons than even he understands.
Riyah Mercer has been hired to infiltrate the shifter prison and watch Vyr’s back. He doesn’t trust her, but he doesn’t realize she is his only friend here. She can see him struggling, and can see the dragon fading. As she starts falling hard for the stoic man, she becomes determined to do anything to save him. But saving the dragon means unleashing his fire on the world, and that’s not the only danger Riyah is in. There are eyes everywhere in the prison and they are creating something monstrous down in the cell where they keep the Red Dragon. If she is caught helping the man she’s falling in love with, it could mean the end for them both.
Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.
Review: So, I’m not even lying when I say that I didn’t even read this blurb, after finishing book 2. Nope, I just immediately went and one clicked because I was ready for the Red Dragon!
I have been patiently waiting on Vyr’s book, since the beginning of the series. Now don’t get me wrong, I did adore the other books, but this one is just AMAZING in every way. I literally didn’t move from the time I sat down, until the very last page. I was so consumed with Vyr and Riyah. I knew it was going to take a strong woman to tame the beast within, and Riyah is just the lady that Vyr needed.
Vyr is trapped in shifter prison. He just needs to do his one year sentence, and get out of there, but the facility has other plans. They want his dragon, but Riyah was hired to help him. At first, he doesn’t trust her. I mean why would he because everyone else has lied to him. He keeps his guard up, until he realizes what Riyah is and how much alike they really are. Now, Vyr and Riyah are developing strong feelings for each other, but can she really save him from losing the Red Dragon?
The chemistry and passion play such a huge role in this book. It was sweet, sassy, and of course very, very sexy. I adored the connection that Vyr and Riyah had, and of course the connection that Vyr had with his crew. This book wraps up everything in a pretty little bow. Well, a pretty fiery little red bow, but still it’s so good. Fingers crossed for at least a short novella on all the couples. I would love to have more because this series is awesome.
