Review: Dragon's Lair by Chantal Fernando


DRAGON'S LAIR (Wind Dragons MC series, #1)
by Chantal Fernando
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance


When I found my boyfriend cheating on me, I did something stupid. 

Or should I say, someone? 

Because of that mistake, I’m now stuck in a world I don’t belong in. 

I’m a law student. They’re criminals. He’s the vice president of a motorcycle club. I’m a good girl with a strict upbringing. He’s my ex-boyfriend’s brother. 

And I’m screwed.

REVIEW

"He's not the boss of me. Yes, he's a badass, sexy man with whom I had one night of hot, passionate sex, but that doesn't mean he gets to tell me what to do. I might have liked him bossy in bed, but this right here is a different story."

Here we go again.... I thought I should give another biker book a chance but it was kind of a let down. I noticed especially if it's the first book in a series I'm not very much impressed - not by the characters, the plot, or the writing.  Dragon's Lair is no exception. To sum it up the story and characters were predictable, the plot had the same old cliches, and the ending, well the ending wasn't a surpsise at all.

Dexter is your typical bad boy and the future president of the Wind Dragons MC. He has alpha traits and definitly knows how to kick ass but that's about it. His character didn't make me swoon nor did the sex scenes. 

The book has the typical fight between two clubs and the cocky bikers doing their thing: sex, drinking, and claiming a woman who is not your typical club-bunny, while the two main characters try to develope a relationship.

What bothered me the most was that the love between Dexter and Faye, if you can call it like that. There was no slow build up, it was just there, as a matter of course. 
It didn't make sense AT ALL. Yes she's knocked up but does this mean all of a sudden these two experience the love of their lives? Mmmh, odd. Both haven't seen each other for years and now she had to move in with him because she's his woman? Sorry, not buying it here. 

To sum it up: the plot was predictable and boring, the characters one-dimensonal, and the writing is lacking on depths (it was shallow). What makes it a three star rating for me was some of the humor in it; the secondary characters definitely saved this book. If I'll read the second book in the series? I'm not sure. I read a snippet of it and the female main character didn't impress me at all - but let's see.
