Review: Dragons Prefer Blondes by Candace Havens

dragonsFrom the back of the book:

The four Caruthers sisters are heiresses with privilege, wealth, beauty, and brains. But these party girls have something extra as well. As the Guardian Keys, possessors of an ancient family secret, they also hold the fate of the world in their hands – between cocktails.

Alex Caruthers knows a thing or two about partying – she owns nightclubs all over the world. But this sassy socialite also knows when it’s time to take off her dancing shoes and kick some serous dragon booty. Finding a balance between running her clubs and keeping the dragons in their own dimension is hard to do, especially since Ginjin – the dragon warrior who’s tried to kill her many times – just chose her to be his mate.

But Alex isn’t about to marry a dragon, no matter how smokin’ he looks without a shirt. Instead she asks Jake – head of the Caruthers’ security team and a total hottie in a suit – to pose as her boyfriend. Their relationship might be fake, but Alex can’t deny that one touch from Jake makes her burn hotter than any dragon could. Now she just has to convince him to turn their pretend relationship into reality, and save the world from the big bad, one dragon at a time…

DRAGONS PREFER BLONDES is the second book in the Caruthers’ sisters novels. This book is about Alex, the sister in charge of the dragons. She is one tough lady who doesn’t like the scaly dragons and especially doesn’t like Ginjin, the leader of the dragons. She is shocked and repulsed when Ginjin asks her to be his mate so that he doesn’t have to mate with the dragon picked out for him. To avoid this she asks Jake, the head of Caruthers’ security to be her pretend boyfriend. Next, her ditsy friend decides to “allow” Alex to plan her wedding in a month. There is more evil trying to take over the world and Alex just doesn’t have time for everything. Jake is an extremely well written character. His feelings for Alex are very evident, but also not something he is happy about dealing with. These two coming together was inevitable, but they have obstacles to overcome. Candace Havens writes with such a witty tone that even the emotional scenes have a fun element. I found myself laughing aloud several times and at other times I was holding my breath hoping that Alex would be okay. I loved DRAGONS PREFER BLONDES and can’t wait for the next Caruthers sister’s novel.

the book girl gives DRAGONS PREFER BLONDES 4/5:)
