Tee is Vegas's favorite casino hostess, ready to grant her high rollers their every quirky wish. But when her own wish to financially help her Paiute Tribe finally comes true, she decides to double-down with lady luck and go for a hot hook-up with her sexy boss, Leo. Unfortunately, Tees about to find out why their romance is such a long shot—Leo is a shape-shifting dragon.

Leo needs a proper dragon mate to save his waning dragon form, and despite their magnetic sexual attraction, he knows Tee is anything but proper—or a dragon. But when threats arise from Tee's tribe, Leos protective instincts kick in. Can he give up his dragon form for the woman he loves—even if it means shortening his life? Or has Tee finally had enough of having her heart dragged around?

Tee has a pretty neat job. She works at the casino as hostess. Her clients can be a little weird but she enjoys what she does. She makes good money but she is currently helping the tribe out financially and staying with some of her coworkers to save money.  From day one her boss Leo has had a pull on her and no matter what she does he doesn't seem to 'take the bait'. Leo is close to losing his dragon if he doesn't find his dragon mate soon. Tee is just the kind of woman he wants but she doesn't have his dragon mark and has refused to get involved with her. He doesn't understand the huge pull and protectiveness he feels for her either.

For some reason, the story behind STOP DRAGON MY HEART AROUND didn't feel as involved as LUCK OF THE DRAGON did. I still enjoyed it, the story just felt shorter. I found Tee to be pretty stubborn and I hated her initial reaction to finding out what Leo was. I am glad it didn't last long but it kinda put me off her character for a bit. Leo was also a pretty stubborn person. When he decided he wanted Tee even though it might mean losing his dragon for good my heart melted for him. I really enjoyed getting to know some of the secondary characters while watching the newest love match form.

The world that the Las Vegas Dragons live in is pretty neat. I like that they have a territory right out in the open yet no one knows they are there. I love the alpha-ness the male characters get towards their women. Both stories in the series have been fast paced, full of sexual tension, and fun. I look forward to seeing who's love story comes next.

I gave it 3.5 /5 stars
