This happens to be a bwwm love story but without actually using race as a label. The story is part of the series of stories about the rolay family of dragons. The writing is funny, snarky & colorful. The eroctia scene are not too crass & the drama is well place.. G.A. Aiken (Shelly L) is one of the most gifted & entertaining writers around. The characters range in different personallities, skin tone, cultures and gender roles. Any story by this author is a wise decision.. I will continue following the series & any other stories this author writes.

Would you try another book from G. A. Aiken and/or Hollie Jackson?
I have read all the Laurenston/Aiken books multiple times. She is a fabulous writer if you like quick, dry wit, great dialogue and funny stories and characters. Sadly- she has not had any luck with her idiot publishers finding a narrator that can 1) pronounce the names( when in doubt-ASK! They really aren't hard, you just have to ask. Or Google!) 2) parlay her excellent writing with good pacing and voices. And Hollly REALLY misses this mark. This is just frustrating. Her voices are terrible and it just makes this awesome read so difficult to listen to.
What did you like best about this story?
The story is excellent!
What didn’t you like about Hollie Jackson’s performance?
Poor interpretation of the dialogue, wrong pronunciation of the names, and while this story is witty- she just says the lines flatly. I hope they didn't pay her a lot of money to do this, it was wasted. And it is the publisher's fault- people don't realize that the author doesn't have control over who they get to read her book. Sadly, Shelly doesn't deserve her wonderful writing to be so poorly interpreted..
What character would you cut from About a Dragon?
The narrator- the book is fine as written.
Any additional comments?
What are the publishers thinking? How hard it is to find a good narrator?
