The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.
Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.
Monalisa Devlin is a Will O' The Wisp, a rare and potentially dangerous creature. Unfortunately, her greedy father makes sure she lives up to that potential. Monalisa is magically compelled to obey her father's evil commands - until he finally agrees to free her in exchange for one last mission: travel to Nocturne Falls and use her powers to force Ivan Tsvetkov back into the ring.
Once a champion on the supernatural MMA circuit, Ivan "The Hammer" Tsvetkov retired after a devastating injury that left him unable to shift into his dragon form. Wounded and embittered, Ivan wants nothing more than to be left alone. Until an infuriating, stubborn, delicately beautiful stranger shows up on his doorstep and demands that he rebuild his life.
Posing as a rehab therapist seemed like the easiest way to get close to the smoldering recluse, but Monalisa quickly realizes that nothing about this mission is going to be easy. To gain his trust, she shares more of herself than she ever has before, and as their connection deepens, so does the weight of her secrets. She thought she was willing to do whatever it took to win her independence...but when her deception blows up in her face, will Monalisa discover that the loss of Ivan's heart is too high a price to pay? Or will their love rise from the ashes to burn stronger than ever?

IVAN "THE HAMMER" MEETS HIS MATCH!!
The publisher summary is spot on, and this newest addition is among one of my favorites in the series. I LOVED Ivan, the dragon 🐉 aka "The Hammer"! He was big, looked dangerous, but underneath all his tough exterior, he really was a fun loving person. I've listened to several dragon shifter stories lately, and they were all different but the one thing they all had in common was the dragon's hoard! I love how authors own their characters, put their special spin on them, but still stick to traditions.
Monalisa's character may have been small compared to the dragon, but her supernatural power made her dangerous in her own way; however, the control her father held over her was unforgivable. I liked how Ivan and the rest of the NF characters gave her the strength to finally stand up to her father and get her coin.
These stories are totally PG, but Kristen Painter does an amazing job creating plots that are always fun, clean, sweet, and low on angst. The world building is fantastic, and filled with a wide variety of characters, and I love how each book introduces new characters, while managing to always include our favorites to help the H/h along the way. While some stories may be better than others, each plot is fresh, delivers HEA, and could easily be a stand alone, but I do recommend listening to them in order.
BJ Harrison delivers another outstanding performance! He does such an amazing job with all the characters, accents, emotions and really makes it easy to identify who is speaking just from his character's voices.
For any NF's fan, this one's a must! For anyone new to the series, I highly recommend it, especially if you like paranormal stories fun, sweet and on the clean side.

I really like the fact that they were flirty with each other. But I found that most of the story was rushed mainly the ending and it was very obvious as to what was going to happen next
