Nikolai Vassago has a plan.
His day starts out fairly normal. Get up, kick some ass, fondle his beard, take some names.
One second he’s participating in a normal every day mission, and the next he’s saving the one woman that fate has promised him for the rest of his life from the grips of a criminal mastermind.
Nikolai can’t say he’s altogether displeased with what he’s given, though. Not with that gorgeous brunette that would soon be warming his bed.
The same can’t be said for Brooklyn.
Living in a commune most of her life meant she wasn’t exposed to all of life’s craziness. The moment she turned eighteen, she was off and running, experiencing all of what life had to give.
That means she sometimes jumps in feet first, not thinking about consequences until the deed is already done.
Nikolai rescues her from a fate worse than hell, throwing her on the back of his dragon and flying off into the night.
He’s a go-with-the-flow kind of man. Brooklyn, however, is not.
Having been caged for the first eighteen years of her life, she wants nothing more than to be free to do what she pleases, consequences be damned.
Nikolai, however, has different ideas, and he’s not above using his masculine will to prove to her that she’s exactly where she needs to be.
“This is an all action paranormal romance with lots of dangerous family drama. One family is over protective the other is full of dangerous killers. Add in dragon magic and hot sex , you get a book you can't put down.” ~Warrior Woman Winmill
“...this series is just so different. It’s a breath of fresh air, and it draws the reader in right from the start. I can’t recommend this book and this new series from Ms. Vale highly enough.” ~Red Cheeks Reads
“This book was witty, entertaining, serious, and funny all at the same time.” ~Swoon Worthy Books
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
I couldn't wait to read Dragons Need Love, Too after that ending in I Like Big Dragons and I Cannot Lie! I was also very excited that it was Nikolai and Brooklyn's time to be heard. This was such a fantabulous book and I think I love it even more than the first one!
In addition to Nikolai having one of my favorite names, I also loved the man himself! Nik is sweet, patient, understanding, and supportive, for the most part anyway. You might want to knock him on the head a time or two, but I'm sure he'll charm and win you just like he did with Brooklyn and me. Nikolai tugged on my heart, he melted it, stole it and I think it's safe to say he's my favorite out of this brother trio!
Wow, my impression of Brooklyn or at least how I remembered her from the first book was that she was kind of shy and quiet and soft-natured, but boy was I in for a surprise in this book! Brooklyn is a fiery, passionate woman and she doesn't hold back. She's tough, brave, and isn't afraid to tell it like it is or stand up for herself or others. Brooklyn is beyond awesome and I positively looooooved her!
I usually love my sexy stories, but I think my favorite thing about Dragons Need Love, Too was that it focused more on Nikolai and Brooklyn's non-physical relationship their relationships with the other characters as well. Now, we still get our steamy moments, but this book was so full of action, excitement, and wonder that I could've cared less about what was happening in the bedroom. Dragons Need Love, Too was absolutely wonderful, it is definitely my favorite in the series, and I can't wait to read more about these characters (especially Ian, I really hope that Ms. Vale has a book planned for him somewhere down the line)!
Dragons Need Love, Too is the second book in the I Like Big Dragons series and I think you can read it as a standalone, but you might enjoy it more if you read it after the first book. It's told from Nikolai and Brooklyn's POV and they do have a happy ending.
