Dragon’s Forbidden Mate: (Dragons Secret Society) book 2 by Serena Meadows
I never asked to be the second son. The good, humble, dependable one. In other words, the schmuck left at home to work two jobs while my brother studies abroad. I finally get to take a much-deserved vacation. Rest, relaxation… until she walks back into my life. Now my family is caught in a dangerous dance, and it’s time to focus, support my kin and protect those I love … including her.
Mischievous. Fiery. Seductive. A single instant gazing into her deep jade eyes is enough to trap me like a fire breathing beast in a snare. I want her, but there is a secret I am forbidden to tell her. Love cannot be built on lies.
But Vivian has a secret mission. One that doubles as a ticking time bomb, at least for my family. I should tell her the truth. I should walk away. Instead I find myself caught in a web of lust and lies that have me making one disastrous choice after another.
But life is short, and even the deadliest bombs can be diffused. Right?

This is the second book in the four book series and it’s Adams turn.
Reading the first book (Dragon’s First Shift) we meet Adam. He’s the second son, nothing much was ever expected of him, that was all his brother’s job (Daniel has his story in the first book) so when a holiday appears, Adam is all over that idea, he just needs to get away just for a little while.
Now Adam knew Daniel was his brother, but Daniel didn’t (confused? then I advise you to read the first book)
You really do need to read the first book in this series, the family dynamics at first are a little confusing….
Quick catch up….. Daniel was unaware that his family wasn’t actually his family, and his friends are his real family! And he’s a dragon shifter!
Vivian is taking photos for her brothers wedding. (Her real brother, and now she’s got her head around that confusing piece of information) She’s loving the day, well that is until a blast from her past rears it’s ugly head……
Adam is attending Daniel’s wedding to Natasha. Not really paying much attention to his surroundings, until Daniel spots the photographer taking family photos, there is something that tickles his mind…… Vivian and Adam were childhood friends, but like most kids, they grew up and grew apart. Vivian might have been close Adam once, but she never realised the family were dragons!
Adam is going to chase Vivian, she might be Daniel’s blood sister now, but there are no familial ties between Adam and her. But bringing her into the family at the moment could be dangerous. But love doesn’t always run to a timetable.
The more time they spend together, the harder it is to keep what he is away from Vivian. And he knows she’s suspicious, she’s not silly, maybe she would understand?
We also have the council that are more of a hinderance than a help! They don’t think humans and shifters should be together!
And don’t forget Lucas Davenport he’s still trying to his bring evil plans to fruition!
This was better than the first book. More content. But I do think you’ll need to read the first book.
