Lucas just wanted to be a normal human being, but normal is highly over-rated. 

Lucas Speck had been just some guy who worked at an office supply store and house-sat for his snowbird parents. He was nobody special. Or that’s what he thought before the headaches start and weird things start to happen to him. When people start chasing him his whole life gets turned upside down. 

Bennett Somerset is a dragon shifter, who likes his quiet life in his quiet town. He isn’t looking for complications. He already has a family that defines the words, weird and crazy, to perfection. Good thing they live in a small town where nothing ever happens. That is until he smells the most delicious thing in the world and realizes it’s his mate. His little witch of a mate just made things way more complicated. 

Leave it All by April Kelley is in a word HOT. Ladies, it is a fun hot ride full of dragons and other shifters but the boys are not for you. These boys like other boys. Lucas is just a normal guy, or so he thought. Thinking he was just a loser until strange things started happening. Magical things. “You’re a witch, Lucas.” Someone should have told him that sooner rather later in life when vampires want to kidnap him. Life on the run sends him into a town full of shifters of all kinds of animals. That’s where we meet Bennett, a dragon. I want one but he won’t be my next BBF his eyes are for Lucas only.

I want to say something negative but I can’t.  Okay so there is one section that had a conflict of the mates being parted and the rescue seemed to happen way too quickly. I think that could have been drawn out to make the climax of his return even bigger. This is a series that I can get behind. Pun not intended but that was funny. Shifters fighting vamps. A sweet romance. Fun family dynamics that made me laugh and were realistic. Betrayal and new friend ships forged.  Action packed the whole way through and non-stop. Yes, in every way you are thinking right now.
