Review: The Boss by Abigail Owen

Book Blurb

Finn Conleth leads his team of enforcer dragon shifters with an iron fist and a cold heart. Every dragon seeks his destined mate, but the process to turn the woman he once thought was his killed her and devastated him. He will never risk his heart again. His team is his family now. When his body eventually gives out, he’ll leave, living his last days alone.

Delaney Hamilton moved across the country to escape the freak fires that plague her. But when another suspicious fire erupts and rapidly escalates around her, her hopes for a new life go up in smoke. She has no choice but to turn to the mysterious men who come to her aid.

Finn knows the fire is dragon-caused, which puts Delaney’s problems directly in his jurisdiction. No matter how her wounded grey eyes call to every part of him, he refuses to risk her life in the mating process.

Until another dragon threatens to claim Delaney for his own, and Finn has to sacrifice everything to keep her alive...

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

I like stories about dragon shifters and this intrigued me.  Boss, the main character, is the leader of a team of enforcers.  This team is made up of a dragon from each of the clans.  One of their own has turned against them and gone rogue.  So, the betrayal is heavy among the team.
Boss is also dealing with the guilt of killing a potential mate because he mistakenly thought she was his, since the council said she was.  Mates and the council are the reason Rune left.  So, Boss claims he will never have a mate.  He could not bare to be wrong again.  Of course, he uses his time training with his team and being a firefighter.
Things definitely change when Delaney enters the picture.  She is a mysterious but great character.  Strange fires are starting around her, and she can’t remember anything about it.  I like how the author makes you think she could be at fault.  There is an instant attraction between Boss and Delaney.  Delaney is scared to trust anyone, and her reason is a stalker, so she thinks.  Her story wraps around Boss and his team.

The chase is on to find the stalker and keep Delaney safe.  Boss fights the attraction he feels for her as long as he can.  I love the battle he wages with himself.  I liked this story from the beginning to the end, learning all the characters and seeing how they come together.  There is also a rogue in the group, but you aren’t sure who it is.  It keeps you guessing.  I give this book a 4 out of 5.
