Book Review: Dead Sexy Dragon by Lolita Lopez

Dead Sexy Dragon is the paranormal romance novel by Lolita Lopez that begins her new  Dragon Heat series. It is a novella length novel that could be considered erotica. Stig Wyvern is a dragon shifter entering his mating phase, a dangerous time under normal conditions.When his dead friend’s kid sister Cora Cardenas shows up on his doorstep things can only get worse. Stig has lusted after her for years, and she shares his desire. Sharing an isolated house when he can barely control himself, or his shifting, is a recipe for disaster. But Cora has nowhere else to go, she is in serious trouble with some really nasty people and Stig is the only one who can protect her. It is not long before Cora notices that Stig is hiding something from her, and she intends to figure it out.

Dead Sexy Dragon is short, around 25000 words, and I really did not expect a great deal of characterization of plot. Thankfully, Stig had a good back story and changed as the plot moved onward, so was a three dimension character and well formed. Cora was lacking a bit in the back story department, but like Stig does grow and change through the story. There is plenty of sex, and for the most part that is very well done. There is not a whole lot of 'romance', mainly because of Stig's hormone issues and the fact that they pair have wanted to get together since they have known each other and just never crossed that line. I will admit that there was a few times when Cora's words for her body, and Stig's ability to whisper in Cora's ear at moment I thought to be physically impossible distracted me- but for the most part I was satisfied with the story. Being the first book in the series, there is a primer of background information about the dragon history and the Knights trying to kill them all, which of course plays into this story, providing some danger and action along the way. We also get to met some of the dragons that expect to have their own stories in the books to follow.

I would recommend Dead Sexy Dragon to readers that what a quick, hot read. It was not a really stand out in erotica or romance for me, but does offer a satisfying read. The second book in the series, Red Hot Dragon, is scheduled for release on October 1st 2013. I will probably be reading that volume as well, because I did like the set up about the dragon species and have hopes that the series will get even better.
