Unfortunately, I was only able to read the first book in this box set. And even that was a struggle. Kira, the female lead, finds out she is destined to become the next Black Dragon and save the world when four men show up and claim they are her fated mates. They now have to travel to each elemental domain (fire, air, water, and earth) and mate with Kira so they can become their elemental dragon they were chosen to be by the Gods. And so begins the boring, awkward, painful (as in to read) journey. The first book is 45 chapters, the span of 10 days, where they only get to the fire domain. When a scene started to build up with action it quickly dissolved into nothing. There was more stopping for sleep and food than development of characters and story. The author wasted time on the mundane things nobody cares about.
One of the biggest reasons I had such a hard time reading this book was because there was such a lack of emotion in the dialogue. The dialogue was just a continuation of the narrative. It felt so structured and I didn't feel a connection between any of them. There was no excitement and no drama. Two of the men didn't really want to be there. I'm sorry but I prefer the men to want to woman right from the start. I want that immediate connection showing no doubt that she was meant for them. Kira would get upset about something, storm off like a child, and then return with some reasonable explanation for everything that's happening. No internal struggle. Just boring and reasonable. No growth for the characters in the first book.
As far as steam goes, I would classify this as it IS your mother's romance. Actually, I think this would insult my mom because she reads books with way more steam. The one sex scene the book has is awkward because they know they have to mate in order for the man to become his chosen dragon. Sorry not romantic or sexy.
I would recommend passing on this one.
