{NA Paranormal Romance eARC Review} Wicked Dark Dragon (Dragon Heat #3) by Lolita Lopez

Wicked Dark Dragon (Dragon Heat, #3)

Wicked Dark Dragon (Dragon Heat #3) by

Adopted a few weeks after birth, Ivy Morales suspects that she might not be totally human. Fully aware that one whisper of such insanity would land her in a mental institution, she keeps the outlandish thought to herself. But there's no ignoring the increasingly vivid and stunningly powerful dreams of an ancient blood feud that plague her nightly—or the darkly erotic turn those dreams have recently taken.

Drawn to Mexico for Spring Break, Ivy unwittingly stumbles right into the path of the same evil presence from her mysterious dreams. Kidnapped and held hostage, she has only one chance to survive. She reaches out to the wickedly sexy man from her dreams and prays he'll answer her call for help.

Welsh dragon shifter Ian Madoc struggles to understand the strange dream connection he shares with this unknown woman. In all his centuries of life, he's never experienced anything like it—and it unsettles him. When the dreams turn to pleas for help, Mad rushes off in the middle of the night, hell-bent on saving the young woman he fears may be his mate.

But rescuing Ivy from the clutches of the Knights is only the beginning of Mad's problems. When Ivy's true identity is revealed, old secrets and a close friend's betrayal put him at odds with the rest of the Brotherhood. Protecting the dragon species is no longer his top priority. He'll do anything to keep Ivy safe, even if it means walking away from the only life he's ever known. (Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!

"Cold and hungry, Ivy Morales blinked away the tears clouding her vision." (page 1, line 1)
The theme of Wicked Dark Dragon in one sentence: What would you do to save someone you love?

Poor Ivy. Abducted, starved, dehydrated, mentally and physically tortured. She's so strong and selfless; whatever they do to her they can't break her. The drive to protect strangers is stronger than her own pain.

Ian Madoc. Mad. He's an honorable protector, devoted, respectful. He's a little too stupid to live, not bringing an army with him, or at least telling his family what was going on, but he was so desperate to get to her I suppose it's excusable.

Ivy and Mad's love story is an interesting one, full of sacrifice and love growing in the most unromantic of settings and in circumstances that forge an unbreakable bond.
