Quinn was ready for some changes to her small-town life… but this tall dark and mysterious man with the dragon tattoo is about to turn it upside down…

Quinn has been in Greendale her whole life. She has always felt there had to be more to life than what was apparent on the surface and had opened a yoga studio with the hope that maybe some of the people in her town would open their minds too. So far it wasn’t working. She’s gone from bad relationship to bad relationship and is pretty much ready to give up.

Apollo isn’t interested in the town, and he is definitely not interested in any woman. At least that was what he had thought. He just knew he had a mission, and he could not fail. But when the pressure gets too much and he decides he needs to hit the gym…well fate has put the two of them on a crash course…

Although they were each the last thing the other was looking for, it soon becomes apparent that they might be exactly what each other needs…As Apollo seeks to solve a mystery and find a doorway to a lost world, he will need every ally he can muster. Of course, he will first have to keep the Alpha Wolf from Stonybrooke and the Bear from Oak Mountain from killing each other.

Will this unlikely pair learn to trust each other before it’s too late? With the literal fate of the planet on the line, can they learn to function as a team? And will the surprise arrival of his daughter derail the entire operation?

My Rating:  4 stars

Damaged Daddy Dragon‘ begins the ‘Shifter League‘ series with an intriguing tale of shifters searching for hidden portals to their original home worlds in order to stop those who would destroy everything in sight entrance to any of their worlds, this one included.

While I frankly don’t see this as a series for me, one that I would follow faithfully, it is still an enjoyable story with interesting twists and a very nasty female in the mix just to make things interesting.  Quinn and Apollo seem an unlikely couple on the surface yet this woman is his mate, even if he no longer believes in fated mates after his daughter’s mother took off without a glance back.  Trying to figure out his attraction to Quinn and complete his mission is complicated, especially when his daughter enters the picture and the danger ratchets up for everyone.  And when his past makes an appearance – nothing and no one is safe.

Without giving away spoilers to the series, I did get a chuckle from near the ending as Apollo and the men, a bear shifter, and a wolf shifter, who were also assigned to find the portal make an amusing discovery and declare themselves by a new team name.  I chuckled out loud right then.  I enjoyed the story, I don’t usually follow along on the ‘shifters are aliens from another planet’ plotlines – that’s simply not my Shifter reading enjoyment.  So when I say I’ll pick up the books over time, it’s not because the story isn’t good, it is – but because it’s not in my usual reading/story zone.

Damaged Daddy Dragon‘ is an interesting introduction to the series, some world building but naturally as dialogue or part of the narrative.  If you enjoy Shifter Romance then give this story a try, you’ll never know until you read the first one.
