    2.75 uh...well the writing was good, and I kind of like the reverse of the ole Mars Needs Women trope, but all in all I could not get into this. I mean- would this be considered a double standard here? I guess I'm confused about the message- are we meant to see men being sold and breed like live stock as a good thing for them? Especially with how the h's brother is found(view spoiler)[ He doesn't really even seem to care he's been abducted and is enjoying himself as 'master of a harem'- and happil 2.75 uh...well the writing was good, and I kind of like the reverse of the ole Mars Needs Women trope, but all in all I could not get into this.

Especially with how the h's brother is found(view spoiler)[ He doesn't really even seem to care he's been abducted and is enjoying himself as 'master of a harem'- and happily tying them all up and being grossly smug about it. Yeah that scene made me give it a stank face because it skeeved me out. Especially with the rounding up of the girls who were hiding from him part. I mean-Woo he's happy?- but he was stolen from his family, didn't send word he was okay, and didn't think at all about how his old tribe might have needed trade that came from a legal "trading"- just said fuck em. Eh whatever. (hide spoiler)] Nor did I like the women's reactions. Jumping on the H, basically trying to rape him, and then shouting vulgarities like "OoOh I'll ride him! Give him to me!" or the h (joking or not) saying that she'll trade him out for a good fur. Yikes bikes. Did not like.

The more I thought about it, it was his briefly introduced character that really ruined the book for me. Nalle puts herself in serious danger in a desperate hope that she could rescue her little brother and save her village. When she finally finds him he turns out to be “perfectly happy and he definitely appeared to be in control.” Then he casually introduces her to his "naughty little harem" Nope. Especially when they then helped him hunt down the women that were hiding from him. What the everloving fuck?! Big fucking nope! Then, to rub dirt in the wound, Halki gives her brother gold as a bride price for her which she finds “cute.” Why should her brother get anything considering he is a POS who totally fucked over his old tribe/family in favor for his own self interest. Yeah, he was initially kidnapped but he obviously had the authority to send word to his old tribe that he was at least ok. Maybe he could have even traded with them or made a treaty to help both tribes. He had to know that his absence put them in a dangerous place. But no, he just tied up all the women in the new tribe and with dubious consent he fucked them all. 2) Halki's weird dick. "From his tip, two feathery protrusions, not unlike moth antennae, emerge." Sorry, what now? Then, when are getting steamy, the reader gets more descriptive phrases like "the little moth-penis-feathers," "oil glands," and "hot dragon sackjuice" to really set the mood. Hmmm, no thanks. Maybe it is just me but an oily, mothlike, dick with antennae doesn't really get me going. 3) Eating the satyrs. One minute they are "yelling vulgarities"(so they can speak) and the next they are being eaten and used for their hide. I get a dragon being fine eating something that would talk, but why is Nalle so cool with it? This makes me wonder about the moral guidelines in their world if humans are fine eating sentient creatures but not rabbits?

    Wow this was super short. Or it felt that way. I was surprised when it ended. This is book 2 in the Veny’s Needs Men series. Halki was not only more accepting of his human mate than the last book, he actually felt a connection to her when they were children. I loved that little part of the story, a small dragon stalking a little girl eating the rabbits she set free, thinking that she caught them for him. It was so cute.

Something I loved about this book that really bothered me about the first book was that Halki could change back into his dragon form. He didn’t lose his dragon once she touched him. I sort of hated that aspect of the last book, and find it interesting that this wasn’t a detail the authors all decided on together. But I really enjoyed this little snippet into Halki and Nalle’s life. Halki had an innocent quality to him that made him very loveable.

    3.5 Stars This was an ok read, definelty not my favorite from this author. The book itself was super short and felt rushed making everything very surface-lacking depth. I did enjoy the contrast in the story of men being the hot commodity rather than women. I would almost be scared to be a man in their worried, unless I was the heroines brother of course. That man has no problem being the only (literal) stud in town. It was just a really weird story-which given what I’ve read before is shocking.

    Read it! Do it now!!! This is a great short read. I love a story that can make me laugh and this one did. I highly recommended. My favorite part is when Nalle finds out her mate can "lactate" and the crazy women of the tribe....goodness, I couldn't tell who was more crazed the dragons or humans!

    This was a quick read. I felt no romance between the hero and heroine. Basically he saw her as a kid, his parents kept them apart, and then she accidentally enters his dragon cave. It was pretty hilarious because there were very few men so every time he appeared in camp with the heroine there were vulgar comments.

    Calinka

    Nope. Love the idea, hate the book. The attitude of the women in this book was disgusting. They practically abuse men. They literally attack them. While they say that men are valuable, they degrade them as only being sex objects. Didn’t really enjoy any aspect of this book which was disappointing cause I was looking forward to this book.

    Another great book So this is the second book I believe that's been released in this series (and the second one I've read) and it was great.

Which in a lot of ways makes since since our heroine and her dragonman are from a different region than the first couple. This is obviously romance (both hot & sweet) but it still has those elements of adventure and suspense to it as well. It also had some hilarious moments that had me laughing my but off. I freaking loved Halki (the Dragon man) he was hot, funny, and unique in a lot of pleasant ways ( and while he was a dragon man I appreciated that he was kept unique and different and not just a bland/average human type conversion but had pieces of both really well blended). Balls was strong, and quirky, relatable but still unique in her own ways. This is just a great book and series and I can't wait to see what's next; would recommend.

Loved the snarky humor between the characters, and Nalle’s coming to the realization just how much that strong, dominant dragon means to her. Took me to the end of the book to get the A.K.A. Dragon Hooker reference in the title. I must be slow or have a mind in the gutter! All around a perfect read. Thank you Amanda Milo for giving me some great hours of down time!

    I kind of misinterpreted the blurb here. I was expecting a kind of Mad max style, “dragon actually” mash up. Which I was really excited for. But this was pretty short, lacked the humor of a G. A Aiken book as well as the desperation of Mad Max. Overall there just wasn’t a lot to it.

    Venys needs dragonmen! What a joy to read this story of Nalle and Halki, her Great Crested Merlin shifter! Her North Plains tribe has many ongoing problems: Hooking up with Halki proves to be just what they need. It’s a well-told tale, seasoned with a hefty dose of humor. I loved every minute of it!

    Fun, pleasant, short. Its good. I guess I'm just used to the longer stories from her Alien series that I love. So there wasn't a lot of growth in this one. But it was fun and steamy! Her brother was weird; still trying to wrap my head around that one.

Halki's pride in his castings (and how he wants them stored in their home, as close to Nalle [his greatest treasure] as possible) gives me the best mental picture and I am so here for that. Anyway. Enough about Halki and his nudity and vomit-bricks. We also have Nalle (who, for the record, is not a nudist). She's mainly determined to snag a dragon to help her rescue her brother from another tribe. While she certainly does that, she doesn't expect said dragon to be the aforementioned clothing-adverse individual who barfs up treasure-bricks for their home. MAN, the more I think about these two, the more I like them. And since Halki has plenty of brothers (some of whom we got to meet here)...well, I can only hope we get to meet more of these eccentric dragons. -Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal

If that makes any sense. I could very easily be losing my mind, but I kept getting taken from the story when I noticed her referencing something that didn't seem to fit with the whole Tribal Primitive perspective we are given. I kept imagining modern day folks (and part dragonesque folks) play-rolling at a primitive reenactment fair or something; somewhere where the peoples mindsets just fit better in modern times rather than keeping with the time and lifestyle the book suggests. Does that even make sense...eh oh well. Just wondered if anyone else noticed anything like that. Even so, it was an enjoyable read and another fun addition to what is quickly becoming a series I am GOBBLING up. 3.5 I-hope-I-never-have-to-hear-the-word-secretions-ever again stars

It just ... wasn't for me. It got too ridiculous - a little was fun and ok, but then it was just repetitive and too OTT? It's hard to explain. Because it was also slow and dragging.

    Nalle Hooks her Dragon. This is a funny, action packed, steamy and sweet story. In a world that lacks males, Nalle was told by an elder on how to hook a dragon with a small hook and she was told the dragon was also small. Well she hooked herself a big dragon that she didn't realize followed her as a child and he was a small dragon at that time. Halki would do anything for Nalle and he did help her find her brother and also Halki brought his dragon brothers to the tribe for the other females. She Nalle Hooks her Dragon.

    Doesn't Fit With the Other Books I hoped that each book in this shared world would at least have kept the dragon lore the same throughout. But this is completely different. I don't like how men are treated, because rape is rape and shouldn't be joked about. The scene with her brother was completely out of left field and didn't do any thing good for the book. And his brothers were treated even worse. The more I write this review, the more I find myself getting disgusted by this book.

I enjoy a book that makes me cry, laugh at the same time and has adventure, action, drama, humor, love, and steamy hot romance with awesome characters. You won't be disappointed in any way and definitely a must buy.

    Fun First thing that comes to mind is that this is just a short fun read. It's a stand alone with no cliff hangers. You won't find the meaning of life between the covers but if you just want a break from reality then this is the book for you.
