Freeing abused men from a sex slave ring is the right thing to do and Austin Lung is more than willing to help when called by his friend Gabriel. What he doesn’t expect is for one of the men, Garreck, to ask to come home with him or for another, Dante, to tag along.

Life hasn’t been easy for Garreck. He’s lived as a slave since a young child and now only wants to be with someone who will make him feel protected. Dante has watched over Garreck for several years and he’s done many reprehensible things to keep the man he loves safe.

Three men who don’t really know each other suddenly living together as mates leads to misunderstandings, pain, hurt and even a few broken promises. If they don’t learn how to communicate with each other, express what they’re feeling and talk about the past, they don’t have a chance at a future together.

Their Dragon is release three in Joyee Flynn’s North American Dragon series and like the previous release, this one is fast paced and action packed. In this one Austin…the dragon…has poor communication skills, which put him and his new mates at odds almost from the beginning. He doesn’t talk, they jump to conclusions and complications arise that could destroy their relationship before it gets started. There are a few creative twists that arise from this and it’s interesting to see Austin try to fix what he messed up…but he does grovel well.

The story is of a rather limited length but both Garreck and Dante just escaped from years of living as sex slaves. There is barely any time before they’d jumped into bed with each other and the mating had taken place and to me, it feels a little rushed but that doesn’t mean it’s not intense and sizzling hot. The personalities of the three are pretty well rounded, especially Dante and Austin, but the author nicely uses Garreck to pull the trio together.

There are a few secondary characters but the best is Kelley, Austin’s right-hand woman and the person who runs the house and takes care of everyone. She’s the best and helps to hold everyone together when things fall apart. She definitely saved the day more than once and is a great personality to add to the ongoing plotline. Read and enjoy. I look forward to the next release in this unique series.
