Blog Tour & Giveaway ~ Dragon's Lair by Chantal Fernando

Title: Dragon's Lair
Author: Chantal Fernando
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: May 19th 2014

When I found my boyfriend cheating on me, I did something stupid.

Or should I say, someone?

Because of that mistake, I’m now stuck in a world I don’t belong in.

I’m a law student. They’re criminals.
He’s the Vice President of a MC. I’m a good girl with a strict upbringing. 

He’s my ex-boyfriend’s brother.
And I’m screwed.

**** 4 ½ Badass Stars ****

I lost everything in one night. Over one mistake.
Get inside Faye,” he says, turning around without looking back.
Do I really have a choice?
Fuck,” I mutter under my breath.
Then I follow the Dragon into his lair.

That. Was. WICKED!! I do love me a badass MC book, and though this one was a lot tamer than what I normally read, I still loved it. Sooo many wonderfully wicked, badass, smartass,sexy & hilarious characters- I was always jumping between laughing, drooling, and scowling. Plenty of angst and drama to go around with a smattering of sexy time, but at the heart of this book was family-an unconventional family to be sure, but family all the same. These guys may be badass criminal man-whores, but they are loyal and always have each others back and when they love, they love hard-core and the women they love are brought into the fold and protected like one of their own by everyone.

he looks intimidating. Unattainable. Breathtaking. I suddenly feel angry. This isn't me. Sitting here, being so out of control. I let my parents have control of me my entire life, now that I'm free of their hold, I don't need another. Even if it comes in the form of a sexy as sin, badass biker.

Faye thought her life was just about perfect. Attending college to become a Lawyer, she has a boyfriend, Eric, that she has been in love with for several years and they have their future all planned out....til she walks in on him nailing one of her only female friends, that brings their plans to an abrupt halt. Faye is completely heartbroken and and makes a mistake that will take her life down a path she never foresaw. Revenge sex....with her ex's brother. Now due to circumstances beyond her control, her one-night stand is a permanent fixture in her life whether she likes it or not, even though she in no way fits into his world. She is the good girl, he is a bad-bay. She is the pre-law student, he is the VP of the Wind Dragons MC. She may have had a crush on Dex when she was younger, but adult Dex is not the same boy she used to know and it makes her wonder how much she really knew him at all. The question she is asking herself now-what the hell has she gotten herself into?!

She doesn't think Sin wants her, thought it'd do her good to see him fighting over her.”
That's where he was wrong.
He wasn't fight over me, Faye Connor.
He was fighting over his possession.
The difference in those two things is astromical.

This book jumps right into the action from page one, with a few flashback to let us know how we got to where we are. I am normally not a big fan of the flashback thing, only because it can cause some confusion if not done right, but it is pulled beautifully here so no complaints. There really wasn't much I didn't like in this book- watching Faye adjust to her new life was kinda comical, though I will admit Dex frustrated me a few times with his 'deal with it' attitude. But she comes into her own and it was wondrous watch- the other guys in the MC didn't always make it easy on her, and the club whores were a challenge, but Faye pulls her big girl panties on and takes care of business. In the end, it was quite an enjoyable read full of characters I can't wait to see more from in the future.

You're strong, you know that? Who would have thought that you-walking into the clubhouse with no clue, wearing cupcake pajamas and staring at us all wide-eyed like you had no idea what to do with us...”
He laughs and shakes his head. “You turned out to be the best thing to happen to Dex, and you're more than old lady material. You son't just take care of Dex...”
“Hey love the man love the club right?”
