Stop Dragon My Heart Around supposed to be a funny read. Yet, I'
Stop Dragon My Heart Around supposed to be a funny read. Yet, I'm so sad that this book failed to meet my expectation. There so many factor that make this second installment from Ms Scott didn't work for me.
First, the appearance of the hero. With a name like Leonidas Ryan, of course first image that come to me is an image of Gerald Butler as King Leonidas in 300. Yet, when she blatantly tell reader that Leo is like Thor, aka Chris Hemsworth, follow with a joke in Australian accent that I don't think it's funny, I feel like someone slams door in front of my face. My friend once said, if you describe your character, do not tell reader that he/she look alike some actress/ actor out there. Oh, we can freely imagine the characters like we please, event fantasy cast them. But when author tell her reader "oh my hero is sooo much like a Thunder God who had a mischievous drool worthy step brother", it annoyed me. It's affect my image of the hero. And I kinda back and forth when imagine Leo. Gerald Butler, Chris Hemsworth, Gerald, Chris, Gerald.. and so on, so on. Not. Helping.
And then, the story in overall. Too simple, imho. Just how Tee, the heroine chase Leo, while Leo try to avoid her because apparently, Tee is not Leo's dragon mate. All that "I love you but I don't want to hurt you" thing that told so many times, make me tired. Add it with Tee personality that somehow annoying. I admit that she's strong, when Leo give his final goodbye to Tee, she want to make him crawl and beg. But duh, when Leo find that Tee is his mate and he finally woo her, she fall. Oh, duh, meh. Big meh, for me. Where is Tee, the strong woman who do not give a damn? She become so easy when Leo declare his love. Somehow that's make no sense to me.
The final part also too simple. No anything big happen. Stop Dragon My Heart Around is like a snack. Simple but not fulfill my appetite for a good read. Sadly, because I really love dragon theme that the author used here. Wish she will explore it more.
