Finn Conleth is a dragon shifter enforcer/firefighter known
as THE BOSS to his men. He keeps them alive and treats them
like family. They do fight fires but their real job is to
protect their kind from each other and from humans and
protect humans from their kind. Finn has no desire to ever
find a mate, he went down that path, thought he was right
and found his perfect match only to have her die horribly in
his arms. Never again will he let his heart go there, but
when he meets Delaney who is central to the investigation of
a fire caused by a dragon, his heart begins to beat again,
but he refuses to take a chance.
Delaney Hamilton has been plagued by some freaky happenings,
blackouts and fires. She also has a stalker so moving cross
country wasn't hard for her to do, but the fire happens
again. Her rescuer from the latest fire catches her
attention, but she doesn't have time for romance, especially
since he doesn't seem inclined at all. When all seems lost,
Finn moves Delaney into the "house" with him and the boys
and a strange family begins. Where better to protect a
possible mate than in the midst of other dragons?
THE BOSS is phenomenal. It is filled with a lot of awesome
characters from the men in the Huracan Enforcers (Levi,
Rivin, Keighan, Aidan, Hall, Drake, Kanta and Titus); a
dragon sister Lyndi who comes in to explain a few things to
the bewildered Delaney; a rogue dragon, Rune (that doesn't
seem like a bad guy, just one not happy with the system);
and a California State Fire Marshal named Deep, who is...
yep ... a dragon. As a sucker for books with men who are
teammates and/or family THE BOSS is filled with all that I
love: the ribbing, teasing, joking have each others backs no
matter what, and manage to fight like brothers to knock off
the tension. Added to the mix is some intrigue that might
involve one of Finn's own men, hints of danger to come, and
surprises in the mates that could be found.
The romance between Finn and Delaney is a tough one, he's
not going to go there but turns into a - well - growly
dragon when he isn't with her. Delaney's had a lot of hard
knocks and not sure she is up to a romance, but doesn't like
the push-pull that Finn is doing either. She understands
after hearing about her loss but is more determined than
ever. She is smart, quick on the uptake and determined to
win the man's heart so she goes about and does what she must.
If you love dragons then you are really going to love THE
BOSS with its sexy dragons, a romance that will keep you on
your toes (and theirs), an intriguing storyline, bad guys
that need taken down as only dragon's can, intermixed with
humor and camaraderie. This is going in the to read again
shelf as I wait for more by Ms. Owen.
Finn Conleth leads his team of enforcer dragon shifters with
an iron fist and a cold heart. Every dragon seeks his
destined mate, but the process to turn the woman he once
thought was his killed her and devastated him. He will never
risk his heart again. His team is his family now. When his
body eventually gives out, heâ€™ll leave, living his last days
Delaney Hamilton moved across the country to escape the
freak fires that plague her. But when another suspicious
fire erupts and rapidly escalates around her, her hopes for
a new life go up in smoke. She has no choice but to turn to
the mysterious men who come to her aid.
Finn knows the fire is dragon-caused, which puts Delaneyâ€™s
problems directly in his jurisdiction. No matter how her
wounded grey eyes call to every part of him, he refuses to
risk her life in the mating process.
Until another dragon threatens to claim Delaney for his own,
and Finn has to sacrifice everything to keep her aliveâ€¦
