Title: How to Drive a Dragon Crazy
Author: G.A. Aiken
Publication: September 4, 2012
Publisher: Kensington
Rating: 2.5 out 5

Synopsis: Some things never go away, like vile enemies, bad ale, and annoying kin. Honestly, though, I thought I was finished with the one dragon I'd have done anything for: Éibhear the Blue, a big, gorgeous, blue-haired beast who thinks the world belongs to him. The world and, apparently, me.

If Éibhear wants to play the caring hero and travel into the most forsaken of Gods forsaken lands to protect the one woman who doesn't need it -- namely me -- I'll let him. Because while I'm trying to fulfill a ridiculous quest for a pushy god, I'm going to draw this overconfident warlord much too close, rekindle his fires, and enjoy every minute of his delicious defeat...

Review: This book is the final installment of the Dragon Kin series. It's 470 pages of... meh. This is the sixth book and I was super excited, it took 1 year for the author to write it. It's finally the youngest of the kin -- Éibhear the Blue -- and his niece (not by blood), Izzy. It's the same writing as the other books: vulger words, fighting in every scene, and drama drama drama. I really hoped this book was different, but it was the same thing. Guy likes girls fighting spirit, they both argue all the time, they get hot and steamy because they like each other arguing. The characters developed a little bit which was interesting, but it was still repetitive.


Also, there was about 5 different storylines within this book and it got really confusing. In one paragraph the character was doing something, then it switched over to another couple with a completely different story, then back again... very choppy and thrown together. It was like a whiplash that wouldn't go away. The steamy scenes scenes were also very quick, nothing that leaves the reader wanting more. I like romance in my books, not something quick and done so fast you didn't know they even started.

Éibhear and Izzy just didn't seem like a good match. There was no chemistry that really got me involved; I felt like it was forced in some parts. The plot can be "meh" to me, but if the characters don't live up to the plot, then it's not appealing. Sadly, the characters were not appealing and I ended up not caring about them. Same with the other characters from the previous books. It's all around tiring, and I'm throwing in the towel with this series.

It's a good book if you want to know the ending of the previous books, but not something you should start if you haven't gotten into the series already. I suggest the first few books, but this last one didn't do it for me.
