A laugh out loud funny read at times.
A snarky greeting card designer, a risk-taking fireman with a secret, a vicious female shifter in heat, and a spate of unexplained fires breaking out all over town will keep you turning the pages.
What job could one of the last dragon shifters do in the modern world? He’s got the perfect job. He’s a fireman and a sexy one too. His shifted form is impervious to fire and heat and he uses this to his advantage. The only problem is he can’t resist taking what others who don’t know about his dual nature consider unnecessary risks. He’s already in hot water with his captain when he lets a beautiful woman talk him into going back into her burning apartment…for her laptop!
He’s feeling the pressure to continue his species and clan even though he is very attracted to the laptop owner. He does what others do and goes looking for a dragon mate. Unfortunately he finds her. She’s not exactly what he envisioned or what he had in mind, even if she is one of the rare female dragon shifters left. Regrettably, she thinks he would make a great mating partner, and she will stop at nothing to get him to mate with her. This includes getting rid of any obstacles like snarky human greeting card designers.
Read as things heat up between the human and dragon shifter while the fireman tries to put out the female dragon’s flames of desire for him.
Ashlyn Chase’s paranormal characters and worlds are different because she doesn’t just stick to the usual vampires, werewolves, and typical shifters – although she does those well too. She usually includes a multitude of paranormal species in her books which make things interesting. Very funny things happen when the paranormals and supernaturals try to coexist with the humans without the humans being aware of their existence. Ms. Chase is also very good at making each of the stories in her series standalone while featuring characters from the previous books as secondary characters.
Fans of MaryJanice Davidson, Kerrelyn Sparks, and Katie MacAlister will adore Ashlyn Chase’s paranormal romance.

Bliss was an entertaining heroine. She always as a sarcastic reply ready and her wit made this book fun to read. She was an okay character. I disagreed with how she acted sometimes. For example, she got very upset at Drake for going on a failed date with a woman while he was still looking for her, before they started dating. I thought that was unfair. They hadn't even officially met and they hadn't started dating, and it was just a date with some chick. I could understand if she was a little annoyed, but she acted as if he had betrayed her. But, they hadn't even really met at that point. He didn't even touch the other woman, just went out to dinner with her. And, I also didn't understand her decision at the end of the book. She was a fine heroine, but she wasn't my favorite by any means.
Drake was much better for me. I thought he was sweet and very adorable. He was the best part of the book. I really liked him and I thought he was great.
The romance was good. It was very sweet. Bliss and Drake were adorable together. And there was a sprinkle of spice as well. I thought they were a sweet couple.
The plot was okay. I was kept interested the entire way through, but I wasn't completely hooked. I enjoyed the story and the ending was okay, though, again, I don't understand the decision that Bliss made about a job offer. It just didn't seem realistic to me. Overall, though, I enjoyed the story.
How to Date a Dragon was a good read. I can't say that I loved it, but I did enjoy reading it. I'm not sure if I would recommend it, but if you want a light read with tons of magic and romance, you might want to check this book out.

If you like dragon shifter books...skip this one. The story was average and the female antagonist was the most interesting character in the whole book. Can’t figure out why the author would write about dragon shifters only to have the powers-that-be in the story work towards their extinction. Wish I could get my money back :(
