Audiobook Review: Dragon’s Need Love, Too (I Like Big Dragons, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dragons Need Love, Too by Lani Lynn Vale

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Nikolai Vassago has a plan.

His day starts out fairly normal. Get up, kick some ass, fondle his beard, take some names.

One second he’s participating in a normal every day mission, and the next he’s saving the one woman that fate has promised him for the rest of his life from the grips of a criminal mastermind.

Nikolai can’t say he’s altogether displeased with what he’s given, though. Not with that gorgeous brunette that would soon be warming his bed.

The same can’t be said for Brooklyn.

Living in a commune most of her life meant she wasn’t exposed to all of life’s craziness. The moment she turned eighteen, she was off and running, experiencing all of what life had to give.

That means she sometimes jumps in feet first, not thinking about consequences until the deed is already done.
Nikolai rescues her from a fate worse than hell, throwing her on the back of his dragon and flying off into the night.
He’s a go-with-the-flow kind of man. Brooklyn, however, is not.

Having been caged for the first eighteen years of her life, she wants nothing more than to be free to do what she pleases, consequences be damned.

Nikolai, however, has different ideas, and he’s not above using his masculine will to prove to her that she’s exactly where she needs to be.

The Hero: Nikolai – he is a dragon rider who bonded to his dragon, Perdita, when he was nineteen. He is immortal, like his dragon and he has some of the dragons powers, such as the ability to manipulate peoples minds by showing them illusions, telepathy, telekinesis, ability control heat and body temperature. He is also able make zones of protection around himself and channel another dragon or dragon riders powers when touching another dragon or rider.

The heroine: Brooklyn – she grew up in an Amish community but hated it. When she was sixteen years old, she left for Rumspringa and had herself declared emancipated. She stole some money from her father when she left and her father blamed her uncle for it. Recently her uncle kidnapped her and tortured her.

The Story: Nikolai was in charge of the mission to rescue Brooklyn, who is best friends with Blythe from I Like Big Dragons and I Cannot Lie. He brought her back to the dragon sanctuary and she was in a coma for weeks. He knew from the start that she was his mate and tattoos appeared on both of them when their bond formed. Brooklyn was now immortal as well and has some of the same abilities that Nikolai.

Brooklyn’s uncle had put a tracker inside her and tracked them down since the dragon riders didn’t find the tracker for a few days after they brought her to the sanctuary. Everyone in else had cleared out of the sanctuary to be safe.

This book was kind of fun and was definitely different than your standard dragon shifter romance books. Though the world wasn’t really explained all that well. For instance, what is the purpose of the dragon riders? They seemed like some sort of police or military force when they were rescuing Brooklyn but it never really explained it very well and I didn’t read the first book, so maybe it was all explained in that one.

This book was told in two points of view via dual narration. It was narrated by Mason Lloyd and Kendall Taylor. I have listened to many books narrated by Mason Lloyd, he is a terrific narrator who always adjusts his voice to the character. Kendall Taylor was good with a youthful sounding voice which matched Brooklyn very well.
