Charred Heart by Lizzy Ford

 For a thousand years, Chace has searched for a way to break the curse placed on him by a jilted lover. He’s a dragon shifter, one who can’t control when the magic will force him into a different form. He’s already lost everyone he ever cared about a few times over and doesn’t know how much longer he’s meant to suffer.

At his wit’s end, he makes a deal with a mysterious figure that offers him what he wants most – an end to his misery – in exchange for everything that’s his: His life, his power. His heart.

The next day, he meets Skylar, a modern day dragon slayer whose mission is to cage him – or kill him. Sexy, witty and brave, she is the yin to his yang, the woman destined to break the curse, balance his magic and make his broken heart whole.

Except it’s too late. Not only has he sealed his fate, but an innocent one-night-stand with Skylar has dragged her into the middle of a deal with the devil, one she won’t escape, if he can’t convince her that dragon shifters aren’t her enemies.

This was a book that actually caught me off guard with how much I enjoyed it. I was intrigued by the blurb of the book, and honestly when I first started it I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it. But as the story progressed, I started to enjoy it quite a bit.
It was really interesting the twists that happened during the course of the story. And honestly, it felt like there were too many twists that happened. But they were still revealed in very good ways. There actually weren’t any questions that I had during the course of reading the story that I had, that were left unanswered. The only downfall to that is that I don’t really have a strong feeling to read the next book in the series. While I still probably will, to me personally it doesn’t feel like if I don’t read it right now, I will be missing out.
I did enjoy the fact that this was about dragon shifters. I think that by having the book about a shifter that isn’t as common as the others was a really smart move for the author because it added something more to the story.
I thought that the characters were really well written, to the point where I wasn’t left wondering about anything having to do with them. It did feel as though in the beginning there were a lot of characters to have to keep track of, but thankfully as the story went on, it was easier to follow who was who, and what they were there for.
Overall, I did enjoy the story, and I will more than likely read the next book in the series.
