Synopsis via Goodreads:
Have You Been Chosen?
Sawyer Smith is preparing to take on the world, and with his graduate degree only days away, he’s hoping to convince his gorgeous best friend and neighbor to come along for the ride. There’s only one problem; Draco has a secret, a big scaly secret, and it’s about to change Sawyer’s life forever.
When three mysterious men move into the new mansion across the street, Sawyer is plunged into a fantastical world he never knew existed. Discovering that Draco is a dragon shifter and a guardian of The Chosen One–a creature sent by the Goddess to restore the realm’s broken magic–is only the tip of the paranormal iceberg.
Being drawn into this strange new world is challenging enough, but then Sawyer finds himself attracted to all The Chosen One’s guardians: not only Draco, but also quiet and fierce vampire Andvari, sweet mage Henry, and ruthlessly smart griffin Eduard.
And, oh yeah, it turns out not all magical creatures are friendly. Forces aligned against The Chosen One are out to destroy the guardians so the prophecy can never be fulfilled.
The biggest problem of all, though, is that once The Chosen One is found, Sawyer will have to return to his boring human life… alone.
But in the paranormal world, there are no half measures. As danger mounts, Sawyer must choose between walking away from the men he’s grown to care for or risking it all for a chance at a future together.
Review: This was not what I expected. I have been craving some good paranormal books, vampires, shifters, whatever. This had everything it seemed so I thought I’d give it a shot. I gotta say though, I’m still fairly … confused. I got more out of the summary than I did out of the book – which is about 275 pages. The cause for this? Likely because once everyone got acquainted and some clothes fell off…. they rarely went back on. And when you have five guys as MCs? That’s a lot of sexy times. A LOT. Some of which is quite hot, some is…. cringeworthy as is the dialogue at times. I mean, I love a good sex scene as much as the next person, but there is very little plot in this one. I got kinda bored and had to put it down and read a couple in the middle of it. *shrugs*
But my interest is piqued though. I want to know more about the guardians, who are all magical creatures, and what Sawyer, as a regular human, will do to end up likely saving the world. I mean, we have dragons, vampires, mages, griffons, evil attack birds, and more. I want to know what battles they will endure and how many more creatures/beings will we meet?
I’m going to check out the next one and hope I learn more about this group and their journey. To do this though? They need to keep their pants on for more than five minutes. =D
