Spend some more time with Aisling Grey.

It's hard to find a really entertaining & funny book. That it is unseriously sexy makes it all the better. Great character narration.
There is nothing better than a good book!
I have been a faithful Katie Macalister fan from day 1.... Before I joined Audible-I READ every series she has out and in doing so, my mind had created it's own opinion of all the character's voices, traits, etc... So, when I purchased and began listening to the Audible versions- narrated by Barbara Rosenblat, I admit I was a bit worried it wouldn't do them justice.... Her voice is very distinct- BUT... Oh, how I was SOOOO wrong!!!! Barbara's unique vocal ranges and absolutely superb variations on the characters accents BLEW ME AWAY!!! There really is no other narrator who could pull it off so flawlessly! Bravo Katie, and BRAVO Barbara!!!!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun romp and I like most of the characters. Even if the mystery wasn't all that surprising I still had fun. I was slightly annoyed at Aisling because she whined too much, but the story had me frequently laughing out loud so I gave her some leeway. Again Drake was slightly overbearing, but I think he's learning. I will defiantly be getting the next book. Recommend starting with You Slay Me first. Narrator was much better this time around. Same narrator but without the smacking and swallowing that was the biggest complaint of the last book. Other authors I recommend if you like this series is Janet Evanovich, Jennifer Crusie, and Molly Harper.
I really like how this series is developing. In the first book, I was mildly put off with Drake but, while still aggravating, he is aggravating in a good way. He is slowly evolving from a total control freak to one who is willing to compromise with his mate, Ashling. However, he leaves no doubt that he is THE head dragon and in control.
Jem is becoming a wisecracking and loyal sidekick. He adds much to the storyline. I like that Kate is increasing his involvement. Can't wait to see where she takes him.
While for the most part, Ashling is still clueless but she is gaining knowledge even if it is earned by trial and error.
I find these books to be extremely enjoyable and I have moved directly on to the third book. And I have actually laughed out loud. I'm half way through and some suspicions concerning characters have been are being confirmed.
If you are on the fence about this series, jump off and spend the credits. You won't have any regrets and will have many hours of enjoyment.
Captivating, Funny, Sweet
When Drake agreed to give up the sept to save Aisling and admitted he loved her.
If I had to pick one, I would choose Jim. You have to love the character, even if it sometimes can make you want to send it to "Abaddon." I also loved Drake because I am half Hungarian and love his voice and mannerisms.
The title suits the dragon theme. Leave it alone.
Love the series. I hope there are more books that include Drake and Aisling.
Katie MacAlister has written a great romp. I love the humor and fun. Barbara Rosenblat does a wonderful job with the different voices. She really helps the book come to life. I wish more of this author's work was available.
I just cannot get past the narration. This performance doesn't suffer from constant spit swilling like the last one did but I still don't by the narrator for this role. Every time the story mentions Aisling's age I am shocked Ms. Rosenblat does not have the voice of a 31 year old, she sounds like a past middle aged pack a day smoker recovering from laryngitis. Her voice is jarring and she sounds like she talks out of the side of her mouth. I can't imagine the circumstances in which she was cast for this series. The voice and the story just doing compliment each other. I did enjoy the story but it was very very similar to the first novel. There was not a lot of character or plot development but I did enjoy listening.
Yes. It is a great story and I love the series.
The narrator had too old of a voice for the character. Her voice was also to raspy for what is supposed to be a young character. Her actual performance was great but just wrong for the character.
Yes! It's a great book you can read again and again.
Jim! He's hilarious and says it like it is.
When the succubus came into her room and Jim was all nonchalant about it and the following scene where she goes to drake's room and one of the twins answers the door.
It made me laugh like crazy, I did gasp a couple of times (especially at the ending).
Get it - get the whole series you will not regret it.
In the second book of the Green Dragon series by Katie MacAlister we get tossed back into another mystery with Aisling Grey and her lovable pet Jim. This book is funny and entertaining. I would recommend to anyone who like funny paranormal books but is ready for a change from vampires and werewolves.
