Jayce Fierro is part of a legendary Boston firefighting family of phoenix shifters. Hiding his true form makes being in a relationship rather difficult. Meeting the beautiful Lieutenant Kristine Scott of the New York City Fire Department and knowing he can't have her only makes things worse.
Dragon shifter Kristine can't stop thinking about fun, flirty Jayce and his teasing smile. A relationship could never work-not with the distance between them, and definitely not with her shifter secret. But when Kristine lands herself in a blaze of trouble and secrets are revealed, Jayce will do whatever it takes to help-whether or not the feisty, stubborn New Yorker wants him to.

Never Dare a DragonWho wouldn't love the idea of some flaming passion between a Phoenix and a Dragon? NEVER DARE A DRAGON by Ashlyn Chase takes us back to Boston, the mecca of the paranormal and frequent hang out for Mother Nature, who by the way is learning to have a sense of humor…
Jayce is a phoenix shifter, so it was only natural that he would follow in his family’s footsteps and become a firefighter for the BFD. It does make dating seriously a little tough, though, I mean what if his human partner wasn’t into feathers and flames? Enter dragon shifter, Kristine of the New York Fire Department. Before their romance can really get off the ground, it may go up in flames, because everyone knows long distance relationships rarely work and Kristine has her own life, her own dreams and her mother in New York while Jayce has his life in Boston. It may take a bonfire of trouble for Christine and Jayce’s attempt to help out going up in flames to make them each realize what is more important to them both.

It’s important to me to believe and live the story I am reading and for some reason, I just couldn’t fall into this one completely. I just felt there were times when this tale got too wordy, a bit scattered and that just maybe some of the characters were a little flat. There were some cute moments, but not enough to make me believe that these two were a match made for each other. The heated passion just wasn’t there and when you are talking a phoenix and a dragon, wouldn’t you think it would be a given?

NOT a bad read, but it just failed to "get off the ground" or soar with the eagles of fantasy for me.

I received an ARC edition from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for my honest review.
