Fire In Her Eyes by Ruby Dixon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Dragons like fashion too!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 😪😵😑🥺
The heroine: Teva – she is a dragon who came to Earth through a rift in the sky which came from some other world. When they came through the rift, the smells and sounds of all the humans and animals in the world drove them crazy, a few of the male dragons were able to get their minds right when they found their mates. Teva wants Gabe but the way a female dragon shows she wants a mate is to challenge the male to a fight.
The Hero: Gabe – appeared in some of the previous books, he has had a red dragon (female dragon) following him for a while. He often goes out with his trusty dog scooter and has been friendly with some of the main characters from prior books. He was one of the victims of the plague that went through a fort in a prior book and had been cured with a blood transfusion from a male dragon.
The Story: The human plague victims who got transfusions from a dragon have changed a bit, Gabe more so than some of the others. He can now hear thoughts of some of the dragons, so much so that he knows who Teva is and that she is somehow attracted to him and searches out her scent. He also knows how scattered and crazy her thoughts are.
This was the one book in the series that has the female being a dragon and the male human (or somewhat human). I didn’t really want to read this one, because I like the male to be the paranormal one for some reason. I like it when the male is the alien, the dragon, the vampire and the female is the puny human. I don’t know why. Though I really enjoyed this series, so I thought I would give it a try.
I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. This is my favorite series from Ruby Dixon and I hope she keeps adding to it. I really liked Gabe, he was a strong guy and a genuinely nice guy. He was a paramedic in the before (before the rift).
“How am I supposed to dick a woman until her brain falls in line?”
The book was told in dual points of view in dual narration, where the male narrator does all the voices in the chapters that are told in the male point of view and the female narrator does all the voices in the female point of view. The narrators were Noelle Bridges and Jeremy York and both did a great job. I like Jeremy’s clear voice and he speaks with a nice cadence. Noelle has a nice voice as well.
The stories in this series are getting better and better. In this one Gabe goes back to the old place he and his friends used to live to get all the stray cats for Charlie thinks of as pets. He finds himself thinking of Teva more and more. He somehow knows she won’t kill him even though she isn’t in her right mind.
Though I liked the story, I didn’t really like Teva. Granted she has been in the form of an animal for quite a while so it makes sense she would be more apt to yield to her baser instincts but she is too forward for my tastes and I like intelligence over sultriness in a heroine. I wanted her to understand things and figure things out on her own, like the fact that since Gabe is human they may have different customs.
