The rating is more of 3.5. I enjoyed the premise, seriously who wouldn't like sexy Gaelic men and dragons. The plot is entertaining enough and the writing is good. My main gripes with the story are the somewhat immature behavior of several females, unbelievable cluelessness, and disjointed leaps or inconsistency in character. Also, I have a pet peeve about romance books that reference romance books in any manner; nothing yanks me out of a story quicker than that. It's not funny or clever and while I know several authors do it-- I wish they didn't. My favorite part of the story was the relationship between Mabel and Eve. It is perfect and all alone is a good reason to read the book.
