BCT-REVIEW-BURNED BY DARKNESS-ALEXANDRA IVY
WELCOME BOOK LOVERS
This week on BCT, we are back to reviewing a book together so, without further ado:
The Dragons of Eternity were once creatures of myth and legend. Now they’ve returned to the world, prepared to claim what’s rightfully theirs…
Tayla is desperate for a place to call home. After years on the run, the young imp impulsively buys a teahouse and is determined to build a new life. Unfortunately, she’s barely opened the doors when she’s tracked down by the dragon who purchased her from troll slave-traders. He demands she pay off her debts…in his harem.
Baine has devoted a quarter of a century to tracking down his beautiful concubine. And now that he has her in his grasp, he’s not about to let her go. But it’s soon apparent that he isn’t the only demon hunting her. He must uncover her secrets or risk losing her forever.

MY TWO CENTS
First off, I can't say how fair my review will be, because I just felt lost, or more precisely like I was missing something. When I looked at some other reviews, I saw that many people commented that they felt this was an extension of her previous Guardians of Eternity series, rather than a completely new one.
It is noted that have read Ms. Ivy before, just not any of the Guardian books.
Overall I thought this book was okay I guess. I enjoyed the characters, especially Char.
While I wasn't a fan of the whole kidnapping/save you from yourself theme, I didn't mind the insta- love between Tayla and Baine(this is a novella). However, I can't help feel a love scene or two felt a bit over the top (not in a good way).
All that aside, I would read another book in this series.
