You know those stories that are about family dynamics and really character driven? Fire in his Eyes is that kind of book but with added in elements of dragons, succubi's, Pleasure clubs, Queens, Kings and Sea monkeys!
Before beginning this book I actually thought i wouldn't like it since Dragon's have never been my thing, How can you like a giant scaley stinky breathed fire breathing creature?
How wrong i was! Char has had to hide with other dragons for hundreds of years from the King of the Fire demons who had order all dragons whatever their element be killed. So Along with Kael who is a water Dragon (Love him! but i'll get to him later) Spiria, Keegan both earth Dragons, and Perrin the baby of the group another fire Dragon all live in a castle/mansion/giant house type building together never mingling with anyone else incase they're discovered by demons.
So Dragons and Demons no likey each other since the war, they will get all stabbity killy if faced with the other....
Until Char Dragon fell in love with Alcyone Demon. And it was then that i forgot i actually didn't like to read about dragons because watching thses two characters fall in love and ache to be with each other was so lovely, it kept me reading right to the very last word. Stella and Audra Price wrote a simple sweet and endearing romance, it was quite a surprise actually, since i expected something similar to another book of theirs "Of Crimson and Collars" but what i got was a sexy love story, character driven with splashes of humour, sadness and a family struggling to stay together.
I adore family dynamics, i love to see characters just talking in a scene, there was alot of that in this book. As the Hero i felt for Char, you could feel his lonliness, his passion to be with the women he'd fallen in love with from afar. How he watched her through the flickering of her candles flame i thought was a nice touch, but what i found most surprising about him was how i loved him when he was in his dragon form. My hat goes off to the Sisters Price for turning my opinion of Dragons around, im usually a stubborn bitch once my mind is made up...
OHH!! and a scene i found so erotic and sexy you just have to look out for, is when Char brands Alcyone with his mating mark...Holy fuck...HAWT!
All the love scenes were hot, nothing kinky or anything to make you blush or scream WTF! Just normal all comsuming hot sex with a sexy guy who when he looks at his girl it makes YOUR knees weak to see his passion. Yes, the love scenes have the Bear stamp of approval =D"I love you too." he whispered watching his brand take form over her hips. It was
a scrolling red and yellow dragon that snaked around her waist like a belt, his tail
ringing round her belly button. It looked like a beautifully detailed tattoo, which
stared out at him with ruby eyes. "Perfect." he proclaimed.
There's a few stand out parts of the book i had to mention, One is when i bawled my eyes out, It was so unexpected since i assumed the scene (which i wont spoil and say exactly what it is, but you'll know once you read it) would go in another direction, so in between this sweet romance story i was blubbing like a baby :P The other part is Kael is given Sea Monkeys as a gift, being a water dragon he loves anything water related, and just to see this dude who scowls and snarks most of the time being dad like to sea creatures was both funny and get all out cute!
"but you'll have to feed the sea monkeys and I'll warn you they’re all
named, I'll know if you kill any."
I loved the banter that was between Kael and Alcyone, she could see past his pissed off attitude to the nice guy underneath, and their banter carried on right until the epilogue. It's Kael's story next Deep Water. Can't wait to see him again and his sea monkeys! (review of that will follow too soon as i've read it)
A couple things irritated me a little. Camion the Succubus Queen was in a word a Brat. I wanted to shake her several times for throwing "i want my own way and i want it NOW" tantrums. Seriously, you're the Queen, you have everything already, no need to stamp your feet. Besides that i liked her lol
And the other was the Heroine herself. Not being a born succubus demon, she'd bargained herself to Camions to be made beautiful, and i just felt she whined a little of "oh poor me i used to be an ugly duckling no man ever would sex me good until i was beautiful" I understood her way of thinking totally, but i felt she didn't need to explain to everyone in every conversation how she used to be ugly and plain and dull, you have a fire breathin' panting for your body guy under you forget about how you used to be woman! lol. Other than that little niggle she was a sweet character, so empathetic and compassionate, and i was so cheering her on when she stood up to Camion for wanting to bump hips with Char.
So final verdict for Fire in his Eyes by Stella and Audra Price: A must read for anyone who enjoys a romance with a demony twist. And i can finally say i actually quite like dragons!
I give Fire in his Eyes: 4 Sparkles out of 5!
