Review: Luck of The Dragon


Luck of the Dragon
Luciana de Luca has a PhD in sass and gemology—and a problem. Her twin brother’s gambling debts have gotten out of hand, and a mob enforcer is blackmailing her to rob the latest, greatest mega-casino on the Strip. Although Lucy has worked her whole life to get away from her family’s grifter past, to save her brother, she dons three-inch heels and a sluts-r-us dress and struts into Alec’s Gerald’s casino, determined to put her long-forgotten thieving ways to the test again.
Alec Gerald, a shape-shifting dragon, has built the Crown Jewel casino to provide sanctuary for his people amongst the flash and awe of Las Vegas. Unfortunately, the sexy little thief trying to steal his largest diamond exhibit turns out to be his mate, and he must woo her before he loses his dragon form forever. But before he can handcuff her to his bed and explain the details of a mating ceremony, an enemy attacks and threatens to destroy his casino, his people, and his newfound mate.

My Thoughts:

Luck of the Dragon is an interesting and fun addition to the romantic genre.This book features a mythological character not dealt with often i.e. dragons . I for one found the shape shifting dragon part of the story to be pretty unique.

The female protagonist is in a tight spot and agrees to help case a joint for a heist. If you're expecting an Ocean's Eleven type book I suggest you look elsewhere because this book's main focus is the romance and the story doesn't focus on the planned heist as much as the trust issues of the characters and the guilt. 

I enjoyed reading this novel because it was quick,light and fun. It also had an interesting heroine and does explore a little bit of the paranormal history of the characters which is something that I didn't find in many other covet books.

Overall, if you're looking for a romance which has hints of but not a complicated or elaborate  paranormal backstory and deals with shape shifters or dragons look no further.
