You Slay Me

You Slay Me You Slay Me by Katie MacAlister
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The author of The Corset Diaries returns to the realm of the paranormal in this sexy, funny romance that pits Seattle-based Aisling Grey against Drake Vireo, a seriously handsome Parisian dragon in human form. In her job as a courier, Aisling is to deliver a precious demonic artifact to a Mme. Deauxville in Paris, but she finds Madame freshly dead, surrounded by a circle of ash. The artifact is then stolen by the fast-talking Drake, who claims that Aisling is no mere courier but in fact a demon lord and his destined mate. Determined to play detective, Aisling summons up a demon only to find herself saddled with one, in the form of a slobbering Newfoundland who wants to go walkies. Drake wants to show her the way dragons mate, and then bodies seem to pile up all over Paris, making Aisling a corpse magnet and top suspect. It's going to take every screwy new ally she's got to solve this murder and adjust to her new life in a strange new world.

Book Review
The heroine is extremely annoying. I do love a good Dragon story & thank goodness for them as the love interest in this story. The Passion between the 2 main characters in this story was very forced and unbelievable. The fact that the heroine refused to believe what she was or was told after the 100th person told her what she was and what it meant was extremely annoying. While I enjoyed all the other characters presented in the book, the female character, who I assume was supposed to be quirky and cute, was simply annoying. I found not one likable quality about this character.
I just finished listening so I'll clean this up later I'm on to book 2 and I hope that there is some chemistry generated between Drake and the “heroine”. I’ll settle for her being less annoying & less than………. Smart. And hopefully, the heroine will let up on the name calling it was completely unnecessary and didn't add to her quirkiness or cute factor at all It just reeks of immaturity. So I'm assuming that the heroine is early teens fresh out of high school or something I don't recall hearing her age.

The big pros are dragon love & dominance, as well as the supporting characters. The one con-Aisling Grey.
