From the Publisher:
Arthur MacArthur needs a job, and not just for the money. Before he dropped out of school to support his younger sister, he loved being a research assistant at the university. But working for a dragon, one of the rarest and least understood magical beings, has unforeseen complications. While Arthur may be the only applicant who isn’t afraid of Philbert Jones in his dragon form, the instant attraction he feels for his new employer is beyond disconcerting.
Bertie is a brilliant historian, but he can’t find his own notes without help—his house is a hoard of books and antiques, hence the need for an assistant. Setting the mess to rights is a dream come true for Arthur, who once aspired to be an archivist. But making sense of Bertie’s interest in him is another matter. After all, dragons collect treasure, and Arthur is anything but extraordinary.
I really enjoyed this story about Bertie, a dragon and Arthur, an academic with major OCD. They are thrown together so Arthur can help Bertie sort out his life and be able to write. The beginning was rather slow, but it does pick up speed by the middle of the book. These two are perfect for each other and it’s a genuinely sweet story that will blow you away. I spent the entire book aching for one of them to make the first move. When they did, wow! I really enjoyed how this book was unlike other romance books. This was written at a slower, sexier pace, rather than having them simply jump into bed together. The author allows these two to gradually get to know each other and fall in love, before they fall into bed. Don’t let the cover (which is very deceiving) fool you this is a sweet and beautiful love story about a boy and his dragon meeting and falling in love. A definite must read!
The narrator was a pleasure to listen to though there was nothing that made them standout. With that said I would still listen to another book that they had narrated.
I would like to thank Dreamspinner for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
