Charred Heart by Lizzy Ford

Book Description:

A modern day retelling of “Beauty and the Beast”
***Recommended for ages 18+ due to multiple, creative, detailed, steamy, sexy-time adult situations.***
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.

My Thoughts:
I liked this book.  Chace is a shifter, a dragon shifter to be exact.  He is old and tired of losing everyone.  Making a deal with Mr. Unknown is the best solution he has, except none of his friends are on board with it.  Add to that, someone is killing his kind and their numbers are quickly dwindling.  Then he meets Skylar.  She is a dragon shifter hunter.  It is her job to capture him and return him to her employers but their meeting isn't what either of them expected and leads to things neither ever expected.
I liked Chace.  He could be moody (as Skylar loves to point out) but he is generally a good guy.  He doesn't always think through his decisions but for the most part just wants everyone to be ok.  Skylar's dreams intrigued me from the start and I loved learning what those really were.  The plot was good, the 'meetings' between Chance and Skylar were hot and steamy.
I rate this a 4/5.  I will absolutely read more of this series.
Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
