Review for Twinkle, Twinkle, Sassy Little Star by Julia Mills - 4 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
Back to the swamp. Back to the wolves. Back to her…
From the moment Grey laid eyes on Star he knew beyond all doubt she was the woman for him, but the sassy little she-wolf wouldn’t even give him the time of day and then he was called home and all hopes of claiming his mate was gone. Now, he’s been called back to the sweltering heat of the Florida wetlands and this time she will be his.
Fight the rogues. Fight the wizards. Fight the attraction she has for him…
Star thought the problems with her love life had flown out the window the day she watched Grey fly off into the sunset, but now the sexy dragon is back and looking better than a man has a right to. Not only is he tall, dark and handsome, but he makes her wolf roll over and beg to be taken. What’s a girl to do when her happily ever after is staring her in the face but she’s not sure she deserves it?
The Florida Swamps have never been hotter. The wolves are under attack, the full moon is only days away and as if that wasn’t enough, out-of-control wildfires are closing in on all around them. Praying for a miracle won’t work. Fate and Destiny can’t help this time. Only the white-hot magic created by a dragon and his one true mate can save the day and Grey has no intention of taking no for an answer.
“Twinkle, twinkle, my sassy little Star. This dragon knows exactly who you are. And baby, I’m coming for you…”
After all, Fate Will Not Be Denied….or will it?
MY REVIEW -
I really enjoy this series! The books in this series are quick, light reads with sweet romances. This can be read as a standalone, but some storylines and characters are from previous books, so I'd recommend read the previous books, but it's not totally necessary. I actually loved everything about this story, but what the story didn't have is why I ended up going with a 4 star. I felt the story was missing scenes that would've added to the meat of this story. Everything felt too easy; there wasn't really any conflict, and so the story didn't feel quite complete. I would've loved more suspense scenes, and to see the characters growing more together. I loved the setting of the Florida wetlands, and I loved both Grey and Star. They are both strong characters, and the romance between the two is wonderful. I love any type of shifter romance, and I enjoyed that Grey is a dragon and Star is a wolf shifter, so there were scenes with both groups, and I love how the dragons band together to help each other out. So, in the end, I just would've like a bit more content to the story, but I really enjoyed the whole book. I'll definitely continue to read more books by Julia Mills!
