I liked the direction this story took. It is my first time reading one of Mackenzie's books so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Who knew there is a dragon shifter union-so to speak. Then they are mostly friendly and living among humans. I personally love dragons. Just ask the 40 or so that live on my shelves. This is part of a series and I hope I can find out that Grayson and Cate get to fix up their difficulties. If you like dragons you should add this book to your collection.Was this review helpful?

This novella is short, but it is packed with action and drama. I liked that the leads were already married. They met fell in love, and now they are dealing with the aftermath of his lack of control over his Dragon. This book is a set up for a series of novella’, and while there is a lingering mystery the ending is not a cliffhanger. I liked Cate and that after a year of dealing with a Dragon when Grayson didn’t seem to be truly remorseful she didn’t take his crap. I look forward to the next installment but to be honest because of the length I won’t be reading it until two or three more stories are released. This would’ve been so much better if it was a “bundle” of three novella’s.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book provided by NetGalley for an honest review.
There are only a few instances where I read a novella and I am blown away by the story. I was pleasantly surprised to be absolutely blown away by To Have & To Hold. The story, the characters, the plot, and the ongoing conflict fully immersed me in the story. To Have & To Hold felt like a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
Grayson and Cate's struggles were palpable and I appreciated the intricate level of detail Lucas provided in getting them over their struggles. The story was not rushed but contained a natural, fluid, and realistic progression. The scene where Grayson confronted his opponent gave me goose bumps. He and his dragon knew that they needed to protect Cate at all costs so his struggle to reign his dragon in was worth it in the end when he, via his dragon, exercised control to do just that.
I give Ms. Lucas much credit for crafting a vivid compelling story from beginning to end.
