Review: Never Dare a Dragon (Boston Dragons #3) by Ashlyn Chase 

One New York Dragon + One Boston Phoenix = Scorching heat
Jayce Fierro is part of a legendary Boston firefighting family of phoenix shifters. Hiding his true form makes being in a relationship rather difficult. Meeting the beautiful Lieutenant Kristine Scott of the New York City Fire Department and knowing he can't have her only makes things worse.
Dragon shifter Kristine can't stop thinking about fun, flirty Jayce and his teasing smile. A relationship could never work-not with the distance between them, and definitely not with her shifter secret. But when Kristine lands herself in a blaze of trouble and secrets are revealed, Jayce will do whatever it takes to help-whether or not the feisty, stubborn New Yorker wants him to.

The blurb to Never Dare a Dragon and the title itself sounded very promising. A phoenix shifter and dragon shifter is an unusual pairing.

Jayce is a phoenix shifter and works as a firefighter in Boston.  He meets Kristine, also a firefighter but in New York, and she is a dragon shifter.  I enjoyed their banter in the beginning.  Their flirting was great and I felt they had something starting.  Kristine is in New York, though,  and Jayce is in Boston. Unfortunately, their romance never really got off the ground.

Long distance relationships are hard. Jayce does go to NY to see if there is anything to this “thing”. While there, there are all sorts of drama that takes center stage away from this couple’s romance.  Because of that, I never got invested in them, and their romance doesn’t gain any traction. I didn’t feel any real chemistry either. There was never a OMG they need to be together type of feeling for me. For the types of shifters that each were, you would have thought they would have had some type of heated intensity that I felt was missing.

That’s not to say it wasn’t a good read.  It just wasn’t great. At times it lulled and seemed to have too much explanation that I just tuned it out and started to skim. Maybe you will see it differently, but when everything went down and the ending was here, I was left wanting more.
