Wickedly Dangerous by Deborah Blake

5 out of 5 stars

I have been eyeing this book for a very long time. A beautiful woman in leather and a pitbull?! How could I say no?!

I got drawn into this book right away. I loved the story line and I love the Russian folklore in this. I also love the fact that there is a dragon in here.
Overall I feel like the main conflict didn't completely draw me in. It was interesting and everything but I felt like a lot of it was filler-y.
It was fine with me because I loved the filler but it did I did enjoy it.
I feel like the author really made me feel and see what was going on, which was a big plus for me. By page 120 I still didn't quite feel into the main conflict, but I still couldn't put it down.
I love the writing of the author. Deborah Blake does an amazing job at weaving in detail and humor in her stories and I am really regretting not picking this up sooner!

Character wise I love it! Everyone is fine, and normally had me actually smiling as I was reading this book. I wasn't even 100 pages in before I went and got the other book so I could start it right away.
I feel like there should be a long series about these characters and I want to get to know them better.
Lets talk about them here. There may be some spoilers:
Talking-dragon-pitbull. That's right, a dragon in the form of a pitbull who talks and you know what else he does? Get people beer from the fridge!
Liam, our sexy hero. Liam is one of my favorite-sh hero's. I wasn't always a fan of his internal dialogue but  I did feel for him and I was totally rooting for them to get together!
A gang of Russian bikers- How can that go wrong?
Baba, our sexy, funny and all over fun heroine. I personally loved this main character and am reallllly hoping I get to read more about her!

I guess my issue with this book was the actual romance. Some of the terms used to describe the attraction between Baba and Leon made me cringe.

To me, this book felt like it should have had a little more back story- like maybe a previse book but it wasn't something I had a hard time understanding. I ate this book up. I stayed up all night to read it, I put off my responsibilities to read it, hell I put off my own writing to read it!

I highly recommend this book for a light read that isn't quite the same as every other light read out there.
