DragonRider (DragonKin Book 1) by S. Rodman

A steamy MMM urban fantasy romance, DragonRider, kicks off a new series from S. Rodman.

From the blurb:

Dragons are real. I should not be so distracted by the men riding them.

I’ve found myself in a hidden world of dragons and nightly battles to protect Earth, but while the dragons are magnificent magical creatures, and bonding with Ri and learning to fly is an exhilarating joy, other dragon riders are taking too much of my attention.

Mordecai is haunting my dreams and thoughts. He is a strikingly good looking man. Tall and lean with long blond hair and blue eyes that change shade with his emotions. But he is cruel, mocking and aloof. He lets no one close. I should leave him well alone.

Harlen is far nicer. He is friendly, takes an interest in me and smiles. His broad muscles and bronzed skin, together with his dark curls and copper eyes, give me butterflies.

When our bonded dragons mate, I know it affects us. A dragon’s passion is impossible to resist. But I’m shocked to discover which man is more dominant. And I’m awed by the awakening of my pleasure. Dragons aren’t the only things that are new to me. Exploring this side of my nature is divine.

But I can’t help hoping it is more than that.

In this strange new world of dragons, magic and desire, can I find my place? And can I find love?

Dragonrider is set in our modern world, one where dragons fly every night, you just can’t see them. It contains a gay 'Why choose' love triangle, with high steam, high stakes, high angst & a happy for now ending.

Jacquie's Review:

DragonRider is the start of a new series by S. Rodman and works as a standalone, though it is loosely connected to their greater world from other books.

Kirby finds himself bonded to a dragon and thrown into a world where he is affected by the moons pull thanks to his horny dragon.

I loved the bond that Kirby and Ri had. There was genuine love there with a few chats between the pair. Almost as soon as they met they had this close bond that was just the sweetest, even with Kirby's fear over the moon's pull.

Cai is a complicated character, and I can't wait to get to know him better over the series. His D/s sort of relationship with Harlan really transforms when Kirby makes them a trio. I think that neither of them were truly happy before Kirby came into their lives, he makes them work by being the glue that keeps them together. He makes them communicate and see how much they love each other. Luckily, there's plenty of love in there for Kirby.

Thanks to the moon (you'll get it when you read it) there are more than a few steamy scenes but also some action as they take to the skies to protect earth.

After how this one ends, I really can't wait for more.

Angel's Review:

I have not read a dragon book similar to this one before. This book is completely unique and sets itself apart from other books that are out there. 

Kirby is a mage who's been hired to set up wards around a castle, or so he thinks. When he arrives at the castle he quickly learns that things are not as they seem, and that dragons do actually exist. 

Harlen and Cai have been dragon riders for years, they got chosen by their dragons long ago. They need 13 more riders in order for Ri to pick his rider, so they ask Kirby to fill in the 13th spot, they never expected for the dragon to actually pick the mage. 

I adored the connection and bond that S. Rodman created between the riders and their dragons, that was so special and unique and I've never read a book that has had that aspect be apart of it. The sheer amount of detail and world building is exquisite! I started reading this book and could not put it down! I  got drawn into this magical world with these incredible characters and I did not want to leave this world that the author crafted. 

I'm so looking forward to the next books within this series cause this book did leave us with some unanswered questions, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants answers.

Overall a really enjoyable read that you should definitely get for yourself!
