Paranormal romance was never quite as fun as in this tale of a girl in a dragon's body and her online paramour, a man cursed with a lust for dragon slaying

Things start to go wrong almost immediately when Zeke announces he is an investigator hired to locate Theresa as she's inherited a serious amount of money. Now suddenly someone is trying to kill her and she's been framed for murder. Could it get any worse...? Yep, her computer lover Zeke turns out to be an ex dragon slayer, his old slayer buddies want her dead and she faces eternity in the Chamber of Unspeakable Horrors for handing Mona over to Satan; who is now using said Goblet as a bargaining tool in his quest to gain more souls.
SR's highly recommended sequel to "Date Me Baby, One More Time" is as complex, funny and romantic as I anticipated. Her characters are richly drawn with plenty of eccentricities, including the charming and utterly evil Satan, his prized Rivka Becca Gibb; a reluctant minion under his complete control and ex-Guardian Iris, a woman killed by Satan's betrayal but who just can't shake her feelings for the Ruler of Hell . I now eagerly await Stephanie Rowe's next paperback release "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Hot" in May 07, in which the wonderful Becca Gibb takes a lead role. Nothing is ever simple though in the wacky world SR creates and yet again two total opposites are paired together when the most infamous of Satan's minions finds herself attracted to Nick Rawlings; the last of the Markku (legendary fighters) determined to permanently take down Satan.
I liked the characters we met, even the villain cause he was amusing to read! The story kept me entertained all the way through and I love the fact that Zeke and Theresa are supposed to be enemies considering she's a Dragon and he's a Dragon Slayer. I especially love what their natural weaknesses around each other are and how they have to fight not only attraction in the beginning but also their instincts which scream at them to kill each other!
I like how it ended and would be interested in picking up the rest of the series too.

Do people know what Slayers are and that they've lived a long time? They live and work in the real world some as real slayers and the hero as an excellent missing person detective who has given up slaying. Then there is the heroine, the dragon who because of her dragon form hasn't been able to live in the "real" world for over 200 years, but she knows what a computer is and has had cyber sex with the hero for over six month.
I never really understand what size the dragon is. She lives in condos apparently quite comfortably and has managed to come by clothes, that as a dragon she wears.
One scene she has Zeke, the hero, go to her condo to pick up some clothes for her. This is after she's in human form and she's gone out and bought other clothes. He brings back clothes that he remembers as being part of their cyber sex. Shouldn't those clothes be too large for the woman she's become now?
There are many things like this that, for me, take away from the story. I did like Zeke and Theresa (T), when there was a connection between the two of them it was very nice. The connection wasn't always there. I didn't really understand T's place in the world and her association with all the other active and mentioned characters. She was more one dimensional for me. No matter how much of a background she was given and that the whole story surrounded her and what people wanted from her. I just didn't seem to see anything deeper in her.
The ending lesson in this book was how T learned to ask for help. Well, throughout the entire book she asked others for help. It may have been more like demand or just take help, but she didn't do any of this alone. So I guess it was her inability to ask Zeke for help? Which I didn't really see as an issue either. I don't know. It was a stupid lesson. Her growing up and taking responsibility for her actions was a much better lesson that was overshadowed by the getting help lesson.
This book is not a standalone book. I had not read the first book and am trying to decide if I should go and read the first book. There was a lot of references to the first book that as a reader who hadn't read the first book you knew you were missing something, but it could be overlooked. But it was an irritation to realize there was something that you were missing. As a reader I don't want the first book replayed, but I do want the references better explained and not in the words of the first book, but from the experience of the characters in the book I'm reading.
Despite all this irritation, the book is lite and fluffy and has some nice moments. It's a fast read. The writer needs to get a better hold on the world and determine what the rules are. The writer had to have better transitions for the characters and the scenes.
Bottom line: Borrow the book from the library unless you're into the series. If you're in the series chances are you'll have to refer to other books to better understand what's going on.
Very funny an a great read, hard to put down.
