An Erotic Paranormal Romance Mature Audience

Cess Lamil is determined to get her college degree with honors and start her career. Her plans change quickly, when the new neighbors moves in down the street. Draken, the controlling and obnoxious neighbor, is all she can think about.
Despite her initial dislike, Cess feels strangely drawn to the mysterious, handsome Draken, but she soon learns that Draken has dark secrets.
Draken Draglen is in town to get the family business in order. He lives by one rule: only sleep with women of his own kind. When Cess walks down the street to introduce herself, Draken fears he is going to break his rule. He is determined to stay away from her, fearing his dark secret may be revealed, but his need for Cess is too strong. Draken makes a decision that could change not only his life, but that of his family as well.

This book kept me up. Dragons, Dragons, Dragons...Mmm!! Invited to her new neighbors for a party, Cess has no idea she's the chosen "Giver" to Draken, and their one night stand will leave a mark on her soul that no shower can remove. Author Solease Barner, has written a fast paced, sexy modern fairy tale with one of the most seductive animals out there, Dragons. Draken knows who his "Giver" is and only wants her for that role. When his animal sets his heart on this human woman, Draken will have to reveal his true identity, his family and his world. If he can just keep control of his animal, literally, when they're together and not scare her away. A great read that will keep you up all night. Sexy, sweet, and satisfying. Excited for Book II, Cora Blu- Author.

Beta Reader- I read all genres of books, and I would put this book up there with the best sellers I've read. Draken Draglon is AMAZING! Draken and Cess keep you turning pages for more. Top notch, Hot and Steamy!!!!

I wanted to love this book, I really did. Four Dragon Shifters brothers, what is there not to like? Unfortunately, there is something missing from this book for me. I just couldn't lose myself in it like I love to do with all books that I read. The story itself was okay - girl meets dragon shifter, they are attracted but don't want to acknowledge it, story moves on. The trouble for me was that there were parts of the story that I felt were repeated over and over and just irritated me more and more everytime I read them. We know she's rich but it gets repeated so often that I almost felt like I was choking on her name and riches! She also "needs to pee" a lot and I do mean A LOT!!!! The conversation between Draken and Cess sometimes seemed stilted and forced. There is passion between them but I didn't really feel the love. Also, there was no real build up to them being together. He says "Get off my lawn", she says "I don't like you", the brothers invite her to a party that is just her (and she is okay with dancing in front of 4 strangers), Draken appears and they go to the bedroom. There are also places where the writing itself is disjointed.  *WARNING - SPOILER*  At the end of the book in the wedding ceremony:- "The music changes and she is at the end with her father. I swallow, she looks amazing. I can't wait to have her in my arms. The decor looks great. I see my Princess and I'm captivated by her beauty..." Hold on a minute, this is the WEDDING and he has just seen his bride-to-be for the first time and after he thinks she looks amazing, he thinks about the decor before going back to her. What?? I'm sorry but that really jolted for me. If you can ignore the editing issues and can get on with the style of writing, then this just may be the book you've been waiting for. For me though, I won't be reading any more in this series although I may still read something else by this author.

The Draglen Brothers - Draken was a truly wonderful read.  The author did an amazing job of building and describing the characters. There was great creativity in Draken, Cess, and the Draglen brothers.  This book could not have gotten any hotter.  I liked the way Draken was possessive, but kind, loving and nurturing...oh and way to sexy.  His brothers all had unique personalities, funny, honest and brooding. I can't wait to read the next book. I definitely recommend this book and if you like reading about shifters you will love this one.

This ended up being a great book! I was a little skeptical at first but once you got in to it, it was fabulous. Can't wait to read Showkens story and all the rest.

This is the first book that I have read Solease. It was also the first dragon shifter book I have ever read. I am glad it was my first. I love the connection Cess had with Draken. The sex was even amazing. Made me want to go out and find my own dragon shifter. I am actually glad to have read about a female with money. Most books I read the woman is average and falls for a billionaire. So this was a nice change. Cess - What can I say about her. She is strong. She comes from a family of money. She is in her final year of college. She loves to dance but is afraid to make it a career for her family's sake. She meets the new neighbor where Draken is not so friendly. But later find herself in his arms. The sex is OMG...She ended up finding out about Drakens secret. She is afraid. But she finds in herself that she is in love with him. When she finds out that he is about to kill himself she goes with Showken back to their home so stop him. She agrees to Marry him. But she is kidnapped by Draken's ex-fiance's mother. She uses the ring Draken gave her to protect her from the fire. But Velca helps saves her and Cess makes sure Draken does not punish her. In the end they have their weddings. Draken - Damn he is yummy from the beginning to the end. He knows he has to stay away from Cess but he has this pull to her that he can't shake. He has become possessive of her. He even knocked Scott 15 feet in the air for a small touch. Which also brought Cess to know his secret. When he learns Cess might not be able to be with him he plans on killing himself. But to his amazement she shows up. He proposes she accepts. Once inside their room she is sleeping. Draken speaks with Showken and realizes that there is a dragon in their home. Draken turns around and Cess is gone. He goes in a rampage. Even his sister goes and saves them. When Cess is save Draken loves her forever. My favorite part of the book is the part where Cess is next to Draken after Draken was hurt and she blows Showken a kiss and Draken watched Showken catch the kiss. Solease Barner did a fantastic job. This is definitely a five star read.

This review is from: The Draglen Brothers - DRAKEN (BK 1) I finished reading Draken last night or should I say this morning around 2am my eyes were burning and I was tired as hell lol but my brain did not care it just wanted more and more. I loved Cess she was such strong beautiful educated and smart character. She didnt was such a hot Alpha Male. I would love to have my own Real life Draken Please! This book was so well written it engaged your imagination and pulled you in making you feel apart of the story and allowing you to almost see it in your head. The secondary characters are awesome and I hope they all get their own books! I absolutely loved this book and can not wait for Snowken's story!!!! If you have not read this book seriously go get it NOW you will not be disappointed!! Thank you Author Solease M Barner for writing such a awesome story!!
