For a thousand years, Chace has searched for a way to break the curse placed on him by a jilted lover. He’s a dragon shifter, one who can’t control when the magic will force him into a different form. He’s already lost everyone he ever cared about a few times over and doesn’t know how much longer he’s meant to suffer.
At his wit’s end, he makes a deal with a mysterious figure that offers him what he wants most – an end to his misery – in exchange for everything that’s his: His life, his power. His heart.
The next day, he meets Skylar, a modern day dragon slayer whose mission is to cage him – or kill him. Sexy, witty and brave, she is the yin to his yang, the woman destined to break the curse, balance his magic and make his broken heart whole.
Except it’s too late. Not only has he sealed his fate, but an innocent one-night-stand with Skylar has dragged her into the middle of a deal with the devil, one she won’t escape, if he can’t convince her that dragon shifters aren’t her enemies.
4 out of 5
I loved it! The characters are headstrong and well developed. Despite being a story about "fated" love neither of the main characters quite believes in it. They both refuse to think their destined mate/lover is someone they've just met. It's a wonderful change to the typical wham bam "we are meant to be together and totally accepting this" shifter type novel. Skylar is a slightly annoying - being unable to acknowledge when she's wrong which in turn leads to unnecessary fumbling/rescuing. Chace has an irritable tendency to have massive pity parties when usually it was his own damn fault. But even those quirks don't stop this book from being worthy of 4 star love. The plot of shifter slayers was interesting and the unexpected twist made it even more so. Be warned there is a mild cliffhanger but I don't mind because I'm excited to see where Ford takes us next in Charred Tears!

Thank you to NetGalley, Lizzy Ford and Indie Inked for the copy.
