Everyone deserves a second chance at life.

I am voluntarily reviewing this audiobook copy.

This is a very short but and jam packed audiobook. This story follows Sophie and Aris. The first meeting was very out there. Aris is a dragon shifter who is sick and dying. He does not understand what is happening to him nor his brothers. All he knows is that he needs to save himself and his brothers because he knows that he is meant for more. Sophie on the other hand has been repeatedly abused since she was 15. Her mother is worthless. That sounds harsh but she is. The fact that she allows a man to come into their home and abused her daughter screams Child Protective Services to come over and take Sophie out of that house.

Their love story is very short and very instantaneous. I did not understand what Sarah J. Stone is talking about when it comes to Sophie being abused by her stepfather. Aris and Sophie's relationship takes place over a course of two months and is intense from start to end.

The story itself was really interesting. I loved all of the male dragons that live in the house. I loved Aris as an individual and as the king. Sophie is a really good character. Even though she has been through hell and back she is still strong and very independent. She knows what she wants and she's not afraid to go after it. Like any person who has been abused in life there are moments where she doubts herself but then she realizes that, "Hell yeah I'm awesome!"

I cannot wait to see what ends up happening with the guys. Also how the hell did Ron end up finding Sophie? That is one question that I need answered and Sarah did not answer that question in this book. Hopefully she ends up answering the question and later books however I doubt it.

Connor Brown did a very good job narrating the story. The only issue that I had was that the male dragons don't have a different voice. They all sounded the same and unless the name of the dragon was given prior or after a sentence I had no idea who was talking. Just a little bit of a subtle voice change would have made such a difference. I really did enjoy the fact that it felt as though he enjoyed what he was reading as well.

Dragon shifters

I have both versions audio and e-book.
This is the first book I've read/listened of Sarah Stone's but it won't be the last. This was a great start to a series. I don't like spoilers so I won't tell more, like I started to. I must say it's nice to be able too go back and forth between versions.
The narrator brings the story to life.

Loved it!

Loved this listen! I really enjoy Sarah J. Stone’s writing and it’s so nice to be able to listen to her books. Great characters and story, Sophie goes through so much and really comes into herself. Awesome narrator, he really captured the emotion in the story. Can’t wait to listen to the other books in the series.

wasn't for me

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The narrator was good, but the story was just...ok, for me. The story left a lot of questions and felt underdeveloped to me. There was also more sex than romance/plot.

Shows potential...

I enjoyed reading this book but I felt like it could have been better. There's so much that isn't explained, and perhaps it will be in future books, but the reason half-breed dragons are killed is unclear and this is a key plot point.

I felt like the characters were under developed, they didn't feel complete or like I could meet them walking down the street. The whole thing just seemed rushed, I wish the book had been had as long again and used the extra length on world building and character building.

The narrator did a good job with the character voices and the delivery, it had a natural rhythum and was enjoyable to listen to.

Short but enjoyable

I hadn't noticed the length of the book before starting to listen, so it was surprising when it ended. I expected a little more story and world developing. This felt more like an introduction than anything. The writing style is fine but there just wasn't enough meat on the bone to chew on for me to be satisfied with this book. Perhaps if I read the other books in the series.

There is a small introduction to the Shifters's world at first and how they do not get along with the other races, this left me with more question then answer which this book does not address.

Cliff Notes at Best

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

Honestly, it starts out like cliff notes, or “just the facts, ma’am.” too much handed to me without any believable reason. Especially when Sophie become psychic. Or was that brought on by head trauma? Don’t know because I don’t know the extent of her abuse.

Connor did a great narration job, though.

Halfling Dragons Desperate to Find Mates

Considered abominations because of their mixed parentage, these young dragon males have banded together, to watch out for each other. When Aris finally rescues Sophie and is able to bond with her, he keeps his inner black dragon, but his inner gold dragon migrates to her because they’re both female. Sophie’s gold dragon guides her into acting more like a queen, watching over her flock of young dragons.
I really enjoyed the voice of Connor Brown handling the narration. I’ll have to check out some of his modern romance work.
