Karen’s Review

Dragon’s Lair by Chantal Fernando, starts out strong; with a little girl sitting on her front porch, the older neighbor boy comes up and shares a snickers candy bar with her, the have a small  conversation, and I was immediately sucked into the story.  At first I thought the little girl didn’t want to go into the home because it was an abusive one, but no that isn’t the case; it is just a home where the young girl just doesn’t measure up.  It isn’t because she isn’t good enough, it’s because she has a mother who would not be happy with a saint for a child.  The father is passive, and does not even interact with his daughter.

The book jumps to the young girl, Faye, all grown up and getting ready to graduate from law school.  The synopsis pretty much lays out what happens at the start of the book, and because of one chance encounter, Faye’s life is forever changed.  If I went into much detail about this it could ruin the story so just go with the synopsis.

The book was a fun read, but some plot point that were introduced were not expanded on: which made me wonder why they were introduced in the first place.  Faye’s relationship with her boyfriend was supposed to have been almost idyllic, they lived next door; did she not wonder about his comings and goings.  It seemed like the two of them were in a comfortable rut. If he was her best friend, then why would he treat her so horridly? His personality as first formed by the author was in total opposition of what we find out as the book progresses.

Faye is too passive with her parents, and not at all passive with scary biker dudes.  This doesn’t make sense from my perspective.

Dexter the motorcycle bad boy, is of course an alpha male; and is intent on getting his own way in things.  He is a pretty stand up guy.  Again some plot points that revolve around him and his life prior to Faye, seems to have been added just for the mouth drop factor, as they never developed beyond the shock value.

I also would have like for the author to have at least given me a location for the book to be taking place in.  Something to pinpoint the location of where the book was taking place.

I liked the book, but it could have used more of the characters emotions when dealing with their life and how they react to each other.  Faye going from a law student to being involved with a motorcycle club vice president and not having major moral issues, stymied me.  Why was she becoming a lawyer?  I never got that she had a passion for the law.

It was a quick read, but it wasn’t a story that is going to stay with me as a reader.
