This was definitely a different and interesting take on alien love/ soul mates. Jarek the Preor Dragon spends a long life with no mate; thinking he'd never get a mate until he lays eyes on human Melissa. Unfortunately, Melissa isn't exactly willing to be a mate. I loved the concept of "the knowing" It's like Love at first site means having the internet in your head. My issue with this one is that Jarek spends 90% of the novel hurt and unable to do anything. However he redeems himself at the end. I look forward to seeing what happens next as the Dragons of Preor were left in a very precarious situation at the end of the story.
Even though there was an omniscient voice, there were two different narrators. I think it was a good idea. It added more dimension to the story. Todd and Mandy both gave great performances.

Celia Kyle is a favorite of mine. I enjoy her novels and this is another decent listen. I don't want the 3.5 stars to dissuade you from checking it out, it didn't get 5 stars based on technicalities. The story is good but it's not overly original. Let's face it, though, we don't always pick up a romance story because we're looking for something innovative. Sometimes you just want a good alpha male in whatever fantasy form you prefer - wolf, bear, alien, dragon, or in this case both an alien and a dragon. Jarek is a good alpha male. My bigger problem is that it was super short. I felt like I wanted to dig deeper and get more out of the novel. I wanted more tension and conflict as well as better explanations for some of the things going on.
The narration was good. There are two narrators and they alternate chapters. It is good in the sense that you don't ever really zone out on the book, a change in voice brings you back. I think I would have preferred, however, if they would have each read all of the male or female lines in one voice.
Overall, decent but not groundbreaking. I just would have liked a little more meat to the story.
