After I finished Red Hot Dragon I found myself a little disappointed with the outcome of the novel. Perhaps it is because I enjoyed the pre novella Dead Sexy Dragon so much. Whatever the reason I didn't find Red Hot Dragon to be as enjoyable as I thought. The novel is written well, the sex scenes are hot but the characters are slightly missing the chemistry that I expected. The novel itself is very fast paced and I think certain aspects of the plot could have gone into more detail.
This novel is no means by a bad read! I enjoyed it for the most part and I would recommend reading the Heat Series by Loilta Lopez. The competition is steadily high for dragon novels and I have become such a huge fan of these shape shifting novels. Each author has their own take, but I have to confess that I have enjoyed Lopez's series the most.
