Publisher's Summary

Chloe Ellis' decision to celebrate the end of a turbulent relationship sends her off for a weekend of hiking and bonding with Mother Nature. When a rainstorm strikes during a spontaneous mountain climb, she has no choice but to seek shelter - and become hopelessly lost within a dank and dismal cave system. There's one more problem: her golden-eyed, incredibly sexy rescuer isn't the average hiker. He's also a dragon.

    "5 Super Sexy Stars"

    What's not to love about a sexy man who can rescue you AND find you a haunch of venison to roast over the campfire? Oh, and who happens to turn into a dragon while you're sleeping after being so totally sated by fabulous sex?

    Saul is a beta sweetie and I had to stop myself from making plans to go off rock climbing to let a dragon shifter find and rescue me!

    This book is well written, the pace moves well, and the sex scenes are scorching hot. I love that Chloe gets to be the teacher for Saul, and that he is such a fast learner. Rawr.

    The performance by Shoshanna Franck was impeccable. She treated each character with great depth to tell each of them apart, clearly, and her accents and inflections were spot on. I also very much enjoyed her renditions of the sex scenes. Very convincing. :-)

    "Omg loved this book. I loved the narrator."

    Chloe heart is broken yet again by her ex. She decides to go for a hike and when a rain storm hits Chloe is left soaking wet with a broke ankle stuck in a cave. Sol is a dragon shifter who doesn't really care that much for human woman but when he spots Chloe in his cave he feels an instant attraction. He heals her ankle then as the night goes on they can't resist each other and he ends up claiming her but she doesn't understand what that means. When she gets ready to go he is heart broken and she doesn't understand why she misses him so much. Chloe goes on a journey to find her strange dragon man. Will they be able to get past this? Can they make it work. Absolutely wonderful I loved this book.

    "Safe, loved, and protected"

    I was given this audio for an honest review. WOW!!! There is so much that goes into making a great audio and I think Vivienne Savage has done just that. Not only did Vivienne do such an amazing job on writing a great story she picked out the perfect narrator for this book. Shashana Franck done such an amazing job. You could hear the right emotion being added in her voice when needed. It helped pull you into the book.

    I loved the characters in this book. Chloe was one that was used to men being jerks. Men she dated seem to have a way treating her so poorly. So she had to be surprised when she met a man that was a gentleman and truly care what she thought and felt. One thing she was not expecting was for her to go to sleep with this hunk of a man and wake up to a dragon. Though a lot of us might tease that it would be our fantasy, I assure you if it truly happen to us we would freak out just like Chloe did or might even handle it worse. Chloe was frighten, almost felt betrayed in a way. Saul never mentioned he could shift into a dragon and now here she is waking up to a new reality.

    Gees, Saul makes you want a dragon shifter of your own. He is this hot, sexy, rich, gentle, protective, and passionate man. He had never met anyone that appealed to him like Chloe did. Saul had such an innocents to him. There was so much he did not know, but so much he was ready to learn. My heart broke for Saul. The rejection he felt when Chloe reacted to his dragon. She had promised that she was his just that night and now her she was telling him it was just talk. That must of ripped his heart out so much. He must of felt like a monster and so unloved.

    I loved Marcy in this book. She was such an amazing friend. Marcy put her friend’s feelings first. She truly showed true friendship when needed. Want to know how. Well read the book to find out.

    I have recently been introduced to dragon shifters and are really warming up to them..lol If you have read anything from this author then you already know that you are in for a treat.

    "Great book!"
    Would you listen to Saved by the Dragon again? Why?

    I would listen to it over again any time,


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I was hooked by Chloe from the start. She is a smart sassy woman who has chosen the wrong men for most of her life.
    While on a seemingly simple day rock climbing adventure she hits a snag, and his name is Saul. He seems too good to be true and she is looking for the bad that lies underneath his awesomeness.
    LOVE that Chloe knows what she wants and is not afraid to verbalize it both in and out of bed. There are some very hot love making scenes in this story too.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    If I made a film of this the tag line would be "Can you handle the dragon?"


    Any additional comments?

    Vivienne Savage is superb at crafting a story, drawing you in and keeping you hooked until the end.

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    "Disappointing..."

    2-2.5 stars

    **Fair warning, this review is a bit spoilerish**

    What can i say...this was kind of disappointing. Chloe wasn't a heroine that I really liked and Saul came off as stiff and formal and I just couldn't get into him as the hero. This is the first story I've read by this author and based on this, I'm doubtful I'll try more of her work in the future.

    First, I have to say I hope I never run into another book where the word "snatch" is used for a woman's privates. I usually don't have issues with various names for that area but snatch was used in this one and it just grated on my nerves. :S

    Chloe is a paralegal that likes outdoor sports (like mountain climbing) in her spare time. She has a father that lives in their home town and was sick recently. Chloe doesn't have good luck with men and had a boyfriend for 4 years that cheated on her and then her next one, Freddie, wasn't much better. She's currently on and off with Freddie and doesn't take him along on her vacation when she goes climbing in the wilderness.

    Saul is a dragon shifter that's over 400 years old and owns a movie studio. He's rich and handsome and talks extremely formally and seems kind of stiff outside of the bedroom (and even in the bedroom a bit). He's been looking for his mate and had just about given up on meeting her when he encounters Chloe.

    So Chloe is climbing on er own and it starts raining. She finds an area to find shelter from the storm under but ends up slipping and falling, messing up her ankle during the fall. Chloe's all alone and can't walk with no cell reception when Saul shows up (with no shirt) and rescues her, carrying her off to his campsite to get her warm and safe. Of course they end up sleeping together and in the morning when Chloe wakes up to find Saul is a dragon (surprise, surprise) she freaks. Saul doesn't seem to understand why she would freak so when she does, he sadly leaves.

    Chloe goes back home and promptly gets back with Freddie long enough to have a really bad sexual encounter (which made me cringe to read) and then break up with him again....for good this time... So things go kind of bad and good for Chloe and while I didn't really like her that much, I did appreciate how she handled the whole job situation (to a point, I thought her conclusion of that drama to be rather lame). There's a reunion between Chloe and Saul and it doesn't take long for them to be back together and trying to work things out. The story ends with them tentatively starting a HEA together.

    While I thought some parts of this story were alright, overall I was pretty much disappointed with this. The writing was alright at best and felt a bit childish to me at times. The plot had points I definitely didn't like and with Chloe being somewhat annoying and Saul being stiff and formal I just couldn't get into the story. Pretty much I ended this story with a feeling of disappointment and indifference about it.

    "Returning!"
    Any additional comments?

    Sorry, but even at $5 I can't keep this book. It was so poorly written and the dialog was ridiculous! The woman gets lost and sprains her ankle, ends up in a cave with a Fabio-want-to-be, and within a page or two she is rubbing up against him naked. There was just no character development--at all. I've read other "dragon/man" books, so it's not that I can't get behind the concept, but this one reminds me of the hobby-authors on a lot of the fanfiction websites. I'm really sorry to say, it just wasn't worth the money. Nora Roberts has a few books for $5, maybe I'll try one of those instead, until my credits come in next week.

    "Boy A Billionaire Dragon"

    This quick story was fun. I liked how Chloe chose to end an ugly relationship by going cave hoping alone. She is not afraid of her rescuer until she awakens the next morning in the arms of a dragon.
    This story moved a little fast but that is to be expected. When she realizes that her dragon is actually her salvation she is forced to take step to mend her relationship with him and helps him to know what he has been missing all of his long life. You have to wonder how you would react when you go to bed in the arm of a perfect stranger and wake up in the arm of a dragon. Would you run away?

    Story
    "Not great, glad this was on sale."

    Characters were not believable in the roles that they portrayed. A 400 year old would not be so ignorant of the world and why would this woman be chosen as a the heroine by an author, I was not a fan of hers? She whined and cried at first then goes and has sex with her ex after having sex with Saul. Very paper thin characters, but admittedly I did not have high expectations for a two and a half hour audio. One of my biggest pet peeves with romances is when a guy says a condom is not needed and the heroine believes it. Narrator is okay, better than the story is.
