    One thought on “Dragon Actually”

    1. ☠ Impromptu buddy reread with my MacHalo Freaks ☠And the moral of this reread is: yes, dragons still do it better. And no, nothing beats bloodthirsty, batshit crazy warrior princesses. Nothing. Well Kate Daniels probably does, but she doesn't count. It wouldn't be fair on her fellow fictional characters. Anyway, I've decided that if I can't be Kate Daniels or Shanti when I grow up, I'll be Annwyl the Bloody. Why? Because this:“Do you not listen to our daily meetings about the state of your [...]

    2. It's so embarrassingly delightful when a book I've mentally marked as nothing but porn manages to completely stun and amaze me. Make no mistake, Dragon Actually is mostly fictional porn. But it's also a sweet, funny, and lovable story about a grumpy alpha dragon and his vicious yet vulnerable mate. And since it's been ages since I've made a list-review, allow me to make one now.Dragon Actually managed to catch me off-guard by:1. Making me laugh-out-loud (for real) after every other scene, which [...]

    3. This series, this seriesI love Annwyl!!! Just LOVE her. She is so crazy, stubborn, snarky and fearless. She has no brain-to-mouth filter, something that I find very attractie to my heroines. She is such a badass and she keeps getting crazier as the books progress.Fearghus is good as well. All hot and powerful but Annwyl steals the show IMO.Found this pic somewhereThis book is awesome, at least I believe it is. Full of funny moments and action, without any angst and turmoil and all that boring st [...]

    4. 3.25 starsAs cringe-worthy as that cover is, it does a good job of depicting what this book contains. Chesticles. Male chesticles. Male DRAGON chesticles. All up in this mofo. Because dragons are allergic to clothing. I somehow missed that this book contains two totally different story lines. The first 60% focuses on one couple, and then BOOM, a second couple is introduced. Whereas the first couple have an actual story arc (which is filled with hilarity as well as hawt schmex), the second couple [...]

    5. This book is funny. Like beware of reading it in public because you will look crazy by cracking up out loud- funny.Nobody wants to look that crazyWe have Annwyl the Bloody as our heroine. She meets the dragon, Fearghus the Destroyer, as she is lopping off heads of the enemy soldiers and dying herself. Fearghus saves Annwyl's life and she is living in his cave while she recuperates. Apparently, it's a nice cave, as far as cave's go. Feargus even sets her up with a bedroom, and there's an indoor c [...]

    6. GA Aiken is a big name in paranormal romances, both under this cognomen and also as Shelly Laurenston. This was my first time reading her, and I had a positive experience.What I liked right away about this story was the nice flow of the narrative. I was in a big reading slump where it seemed like it was harder to read books and get sucked in, and I liked how easy it was to fall into the world of this book. Aiken has some very good humor, and not afraid to make it involve some physical interactio [...]

    7. Meet Annwyl The Bloody Her past times include chopping off people's heads.And reading books“Not everything can involve bloodshed, Annwyl.” “Can’t you come get me when there is bloodshed? Otherwise just leave me alone to read.”Bloodshed, books, or nothing! Finally a heroine with guts, wits, morals, and brains!! She is so crazy, stubborn, snarky, fearless!And she definitely speaks her mind “Fearghus didn’t say anything. He wanted to see her reaction. She didn’t speak for several mo [...]

    8. Buddy read *more like buddy torture =p * with lovely Orient and CraigThis is the book that made me fall in love with PNR. It is a light and funny read with a nice plot. Books get way more funny and a bit more complex plotwise as the series progress.I'll gloat talk more after buddies finish their reading =p

    9. DNF at page 156. A dare so kindly provided by an amazing GR friend of mine: Edge of Bubble :) Luv ya sis, but one day you’ll be the death of me :D To begin with, I’m a terrible reader when it comes to romance. There was a time when I breathed with historical romance, until it was an overload and I ran for UF and thrillers for recovery. But the romance I read was nothing compared to “Dragon Actually”. I must give credit to the beginning of this book, it started good, with a fight, a kick- [...]

    10. Clearly I am a fool for waiting so long to start this series. The first book in the series is actually two stories in one. So here are my thoughts on each:DRAGON ACTUALLY – 5 starsAnnwyl the Bloody is a warrior chick who simply does as she pleases. Though a mere human, she is a force, igniting passion and determination in her battalion as she leads them into possible death. Her greatest enemy is her own brother, Lorcan. A sadistic brother who gets off on suffering, Annwyl must do everything in [...]

    11. 3.5 stars, but rounded up.Review also found at:theparanormalpaladin.wordpresSo, reading and writing this review has given me another an opportunity to Google Jason Momoa pictures, since he reminds me of the male lead character, Fearghus (who is a SEXY dragon shifter).On one hand, this was a pretty typical fantasy romance, but it also had some high points that put it above your average, tropey love story. Annwyl is a 21 year old virgin, but she grew up with an abusive father and brother and spent [...]

    12. I am soo disappointed with this book. It really is 2 short stories, or 1 almost-novel length story, and 1 short story. I read the first, and refused to read anymore, so it's on the DNF shelf.A warrior named Annwyl has spent the past 2 years trying to defeat her cruel evil brother, gaining her the nickname Annwyl the Bloody. She is almost killed in front of a dragon's lairFearghus the Destroyer, but he is fascinated by her, and as she heals, she falls for him. By day, a knight comes to her to hel [...]

    13. This rating and review is based solely on the first story in the book, Dragon Actually and will be updated when I read the second story, Chains & Flames.Dragon Actually, the first book in the Dragon Kin series, is my first G.A. Aiken/Shelly Laurenston read and so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from this author. To be honest, I thought the first half of the story was OK. There was a lot of humor, but not much depth to the plot or characters at all and, truth be told, I don’t think [...]

    14. If I were to write a review in Annwyl's words, it would be this: Oi! This book is bloody brilliant!Wow this book is a definite fave! Love Fearghus and Annwyll and their magical world of dragons and fierce battles. Not to mention the secondary characters are great too and I look forward to getting to know them better in the following books.I haven't had a good laugh in a while and this book, had me giggling like an idiot! Superb!

    15. Ohhh eeee! Grab a glass of water and sit down with "Dragon Actually" by GA Aiken (AKA Shelly Laurenston) and you'll laugh out loud when you're not fanning yourself. This book actually contains two related stories. I'm tagging this as erotica because of the frank descriptions and plethora of sex in the book. And boy is it good!Annwyl the Bloody isn't really sure she likes her nickname. All she really wants to do is kill her brother the wacko, blood-thirsty king and get back to living without look [...]

    16. This one surprised the hell out of me. It was pushed on me by Abby because she likes to torture me is the greatest friend ever.I would have never read this book. The cover is ridiculous and I was told it was dragon porn. Sorry, not my cuppa. But then the some of the other MacHalo ladies got in on the conversation and if you don't already know, they like their stories a little smutty sometimes. Just for the record, this is more of a shifter PNR, not at all monster porn as I was led to believe, an [...]

    17. Dragon Actually: 5 starsI really enjoyed reading about Annwyl the Bloody and Fearghus the Destroyer. She's a slightly insane warrior chick (think a beheading hardcore Xena) who has only her fellow soldiers as sort of friends. They're all mainly terrified of her, and no love in her life. Fearghus is a cranky hermit dragon who likes no one, barely one or two of his siblings. Annwyl ends up at F's cave, he nurses her back to health & thus their friendship begins. It's lovely to see these two "t [...]

    18. Thoroughly entertaining diversion from the sh!t show that is our world Series: YepSexy times: Yes but nothing out of the ordinary. Everything felt normal and silly. Plan on reading more by the author: YES!Synopsis: This is actually two stories / novellas in one - Annwyl and Fearghus - I love his name. So perfectly dragon. And Rhiannon and Bercelak, who just happen to be Fearghus' parents. Basically, Annwyl's brother is a very evil toddler of a man who is out to kill his sister who happens to be [...]

    19. 4.5 starsI see from the other reviews that this seems to be a Love It or Hate It kind of book. I'm firmly in the Love It camp. I guess it depends on what you were expecting from the novel? I was personally hoping for nothing more than brain candy, and I certainly wasn't the least bit disappointed in that regard. I thought Dragon Actually was humorous and entertaining, and the bonus story Chains and Flames a wonderful add-on to the overall experience.

    20. OK now I'm kicking myself for not reading this series earlier!I really enjoy Shelley Laurenston aka G.A. Aiken's writing. This book did not disappoint.I loved the 'time' or 'era' that this story takes place in. I like that Annwyl (The Bloody) is very 'crass' and has no etiquette whatsoever. She has been raised by men, had to fight like a man to survive, and has to kill her only brother in order to restore justice to her kingdom.Fearghus (the Dragon) The Destroyer is also just as crass, and stubb [...]

    21. A buddy re-read with the MacHalo Freaks Because life is all about the DRAGONS!" “Lorcan rubbed his head. “Am I asking too much to want the little bitch dead? Am I?” It seemed Hefaidd-Hen learned long ago not to answer certain questions. “All I want is for her to suffer a painful, horrifying death. And for her head to be on a spike in front of my castle. That’s all I want.”― G.A. Aiken, Dragon Actually "This is a wonderful, funny, sexy and bloody book, and OoooOO JOY, it is just the [...]

    22. I saw this book in the bookstore and picked it up on a whim. I am so glad that I did. This book was hilarious! As I started reading it I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get into it. Annwyl's personality kind of rubbed me the wrong way at first. She grew on me eventually though.I thought Fearghus was pretty adorable. He tried so hard to be cranky and antisocial but couldn't get past the urge to hang out with Annwyl. I thought it was funny when he ended up being jealous of himself. He end [...]

    23. kitabisevda/2012/Gerçekten harika bir kitaptı. Çok eğlenceli, komik, aşk dolu, biraz vahşiKitap bir arkadaşımın tavsiyesi, onun okuması ile listeme girdi. Tabii türkiyede de çevrilmesinin büyük etkisis oldu. Her ne kadar içinde bir kadın ve erkeğin aşkını beklesemde bu kadar komik olacağını ummamıştım. İçindeki kardeş kavgalarını okuması gerçekten çok zevkli.Vahşi derken Ejderhaların insanları kızartıp yemesi ve Kanlı Annwyl'ın adını haketmesi gibi olay [...]

    24. This is actually 2 novellas.Dragon Actually The better of the two. This had a more likable hero and heroine. I found the dialogue immature and irritating at times, but overall it was a decent story filled with good paced action, love and conflict. What I didn't like was how the heroine had no problem screwing the knight, when she loved the dragon. Ok even if it is they were the one in the same, she didn't know that so I lost respect for her. She also was too over the top bloodthirsty and complet [...]

    25. Dragon Actually technically is two stories in one book, you have the first story which revolves around Annwyl and Fearghus, while the second half of the book revolves around Rhiannon and Bercelak. I absolutely loved both stories. Annwyl is a tough warrior princess trying to lead the rebellion against her sadistic brother. Annwyl has had a seriously rough life that includes abuse and poverty, however that hasn't tainted who she is. She's extremely loyal and caring, she only wants to help people a [...]

    26. Kate said: " One of the best dragon books. It's funny, violent, and smexy times. "And Aileene was like:Would Kate and this book turn skeptical Aileene into a dragon-book whore?Or would it leave her unimpressed again and in return incinerate Kate's dragon-smut lovin' derrière?Stay tuned.Reading commences sometime soon.

    27. Rating: 3 starsNot bad. Not bad at all. Fun though no surprises storyline. Loads of PWP. Kick-butt heroine. A sweet & grumpy hero.Predictable villains.Awesome supporting female characters.Sexy male supporting characters.And most importantly. Dragons. And swords.A decent and humorous read overall.

    28. Buddy read with AlyYou know how you sometimes need a palate cleanser? Something that is just going to be light hearted, funny and if we're completely honest a little on the ridiculous side? Well that's exactly what you're going to get if you pick up a copy of Dragon Actually, the first book in G.A. Aiken (AKA Shelly Laurenston) 's Dragon Kin series. It's full of sexy (and incredibly horny) dragons and kick ass warrior women who aren't afraid to take what they want. There are no blushing virgins [...]
