Vivian Blue had always been a little different. She had no idea how different until Hatch Lancaster, a wealthy, handsome, and mysterious man, enters her life on a secret mission. Within a short time, Hatch becomes her boss, her friend, and the man who haunts her heart and her dreams. With Hatch's help, Blue begins to uncover truths about herself and her past, and soon discovers that nothing in her life is as it appears to be.
Surrounded by subterfuge and unidentified danger, Blue is left with Hatch as her only protection and defense. As she turns to Hatch for protection, however, she begins to wonder whether the danger comes from the secrets in her past or from Hatch himself.
A truly powerful dragon, Hatch is torn between his growing attraction to Blue, his responsibilities to his homeland, and perhaps most importantly, the future of dragonkind.
The debut novel by author Acaica Awai, Scales is a new and modern take on the legend of dragons and dragonkind, reinventing the mythology surrounding these fantastic creatures.

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
While the setting is beautiful and bought back some memories of Maui, it made the story enjoyable. However, the story was very slow moving and the ending didn't resolve anything. We still don't know to what extent Blue is a dragon and if she will be able to master her abilities. We have an idea who wants her dead/captured but not for sure or what their agenda is. In other words we were left hanging with a lot of unanswered questions.
I am not sure if I will invest in the sequel if there is to be one. Hatch and Blue were very likeable characters but I am not that invested in their resolution at this point.
I brought the audible version because I could listen to it in the car. I can't drive and read at the same time. lol.
Yes I listened it in the car and then took my ipod inside and listened to the end of it when doing housework. Loved the story and even looked online to see if the author had any other books published either in ebook or audible book format. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
"Intriguing but unfinished"
I will probably listen again in case I missed anything as I am often listening whilst doing something else. Its well read and easy to follow.
I was disappointed with the ending, as to me there was no ending, it just stopped and the credits were being read. I fully understand the need to keep fans eager for me, but I felt it could have been handled better and wound down a little more.
Overall it was slow to start to with but once all the characters had been introduced it rolled along quite nicely.
I did not listen to other books whilst listening to this one, however I had to fit listening around other things. A bulk was heard in the car.
