Summary from Goodreads:
The author of The Corset Diaries returns to the realm of the paranormal in this sexy, funny romance that pits Seattle-based Aisling Grey against Drake Vireo, a seriously handsome Parisian dragon in human form. In her job as courier, Aisling is to deliver a precious demonic artifact to a Mme. Deauxville in Paris, but she finds Madame freshly dead, surrounded by a circle of ash. The artifact is then stolen by the fast-talking Drake, who claims that Aisling is no mere courier but in fact a demon lord and his destined mate. Determined to play detective, Aisling summons up a demon only to find herself saddled with one, in the form of a slobbering Newfoundland who wants to go walkies. Drake wants to show her the way dragons mate, and then bodies seem to pile up all over Paris, making Aisling a corpse magnet and top suspect. It’s going to take every screwy new ally she’s got to solve this murder and adjust to her new life in a strange new world.
*Weekend Quickie is a brand new feature here at Got Fiction. Over the last year, I realized that when there are so many books to be read and reviewed, it becomes VERY difficult to write full reviews all the time. So, Weekend Quickies are shorter reviews that express thoughts and opinions on a book read, but not in as much detail as a full review. Most often, these reviews will be from books off my personal TBR shelf, audiobooks, or novellas.*
Book Savvy Babe’s Quickie Review:
You Slay Me is a light, funny, overall fun read. However, I found Aisling making not-so-smart choices and kind of annoying at times. Cheesy is a word that comes to mind when thinking about this book. But, I have to hand it to Katie MacAlister, this book was fun to read. Aisling gets into all kinds of trouble and mischief. Drake is pretty sexy, but I don’t understand why he doesn’t really pursue Aisling more. They are supposed to be mates, and Drake is supposed to be super powerful. But, Drake is lets Aisling do her own thing and she even escapes him pretty easily, more than once.
As I said, You Slay Me is a light-hearted read, and sometimes, that’s just what is needed. I am likely to read more books from this series, but they aren’t at the top of my to-read list. Paranormal readers, if you are in need of a really light-hearted read, this may be just the book for you.
