Review - Ancient Enforcer by Katie Reus

Ancient Enforcer
by Katie Reus
Series: Ancients Rising, #3
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: January 26, 2021

An ancient dragon warrior determined to protect what’s his…

Former general Mikael lost his clan, his family, everything, thousands of years ago. Now he’s awakened in a new world that’s trying to rebuild. He and his brothers are ordered to live with Avery, a human female, and her younger brothers. Avery is nothing he should want. She’s too soft, too sweet…too happy. But he can’t stop his growing obsession with her.

The human female who threatens his jaded heart…

House flipper Avery is no stranger to heartbreak, and knows that the ones you love most can stab you in the back the quickest. When she’s asked to shelter a bunch of dragon shifters, her instinct is to say no. Until she meets the ragtag group of males who are struggling to adjust to the new world. Against her better judgment, she agrees to take them in. Even if the gruff Mikael has heartbreak written all over him, she can’t help but fall for the sexy dragon a little more every day. But when a threat from her past emerges, promising to tear her world apart, things suddenly change between them. As they race against the clock to save her family, Mikael must risk everything and claim her before it’s too late.

Author note: Though part of a series, this book may be read as a stand-alone, complete with HEA.

Another wonderful book in this series! I am totally loving the world the Katie Reus has created and can’t get enough of these stories and characters.

Avery is strong, fierce, and in charge, but guards her heart. Mikael is an ancient dragon shifter who knows what he wants – and that would be Avery…except he knows if he pushes too hard, too fast, she’ll run. These two seemed like an unlikely pairing to me at first, but watching them form such a strong bond, first as friends (even though Mikael knows she is his!) and then as more, it was easy to see how well they fit together - even if Avery is in just a wee bit of denial about how deep her feelings were! And once Mikael finally acts on his feelings, I love how he was so candid about what he wanted and loved watching Avery’s startled reactions!
“I’m probably just going to head upstairs.”

“Alone? Or would you like me to join you?”

She swallowed hard. “Join me in my room?”

“In your bed. Or your shower. Or up against your wall.” Where didn’t matter to him. Only being with her did. “Just as long as we’re naked and my mouth is on you.”

“Mikael, you can’t just say stuff like that.”

“Why not? I believe I have been too quiet in my desire for you.”
I loved the family dynamic that existed between Avery and her two brothers, who are human, and Mikael and his brothers, who are ancient dragon shifters. They have all suffered loss and seem to quickly form a family bond, which, when danger comes at them, only brings them closer together and stronger.

I absolutely love this world that Katie Reus has created. There are so many different types of supernaturals and I love how she weaves them all together to create this new world that is being rebuilt. I love when previous characters show up, and I love how the core group of characters in this series keeps expanding and becoming even more interesting. And I can’t forget to mention the dragonlings - I just love them!!

This is a book and series that I would highly recommend! Looking forward to the next one!!

I received an advance reader copy from the author which I voluntarily reviewed
