A Golden Kingdom Novel
The heart remembers.
When Aidan Bishop staggers out of the woods, naked and suffering from amnesia, he needs to relearn who he is and where he fits in the world.
His boss, nearly five-hundred-year-old dragon Nassim, head of a successful tech company, hurries to claim his wayward assistant and guide him back into the life he disappeared from. As they get to know each other again, Aidan wonders if their relationship went deeper than employer and employee. But Nassim isn’t telling, and Aidan has a secret of his own… even if he doesn’t know it yet.
Jenn Burke is one of my go-to paranormal/ fantasy authors and she did not disappoint with this one!
Like the first book in the series, it wasn’t stereotypical of most shifter books. The author gave us twists and turns and crumbs to find out the truth in a world that was well fleshed out. I love the work atmosphere that this took place in. Keeping Aidan in a familiar place in the hopes he regains his memory and with no other family to help him his boss, Nassim steps in to help and care for him. The secondary characters were fun and helped move the story along which is something I need in books with extra people outside the main characters.
The story built up with unexpected events and suspense which I loved. The pacing and writing were great as well and were spot on to what I expected from reading this author's previous work.
I do wish there was more romance or passion between the characters when the time came but overall I loved them together and how Aidan had this innate knowledge of Nassim. I liked that we were never quite sure if Nassim was who he said he was to Aidan. It is a fated mate story but not one that was rushed and since it took place it stages there was always a choice for them to stay or go.
This was a great book and I can’t wait to see what’s next! If you haven’t read book 1, The Gryphon King’s Consort you should because it’s just as good, if not better than this one!
