Dragon’s Fated MateDate: Shifters MateDate Agency by Serena Meadows
I’m a dragon shifter with a secret.
I’m madly in love with Jemma and she has no idea.
Keeping my feelings from her is tough.
But it’s tougher to know that she was abused by her father.
The same father who has an evil plan for her.
He wants to get her married.
For his own selfish reasons, of course.
Jemma’s marriage would mean that he gets control of her mother’s money.
And so, Jemma approached a dating agency so she could get fake married.
I’d protect her from all the creepy men.
Make sure she’s still mine.
But nothing went according to plan.
I confessed my love to her.
Told her that she belonged to me.
And then vowed to save her from the man who raised her.

I’ve not read the first two in this series, and didn’t feel like I’d missed the books. But further in the story apparently a few previous characters get a role in this book. If I hadn’t looked for the previous two books, I wouldn’t have known they were part of the series.
Theo is a fifth grade teacher, and in love with his best friend. He’s often thought about telling Jemma how he feels about her, but is too scared…. what if she didn’t feel the same way? He’d lose his best friend, so Theo has come to terms with loving his friend in secret.
Jemma thought she’d found someone to move forward in life, they shared the same interests, laughed at the same stuff, only problem….. he’s gay!!
So rather than lose her friend, Jemma has convinced herself to love him from a distance.
Friday night is the highlight of both the MC’s, they get to spend time with the one they love (only it’s a secret love neither know about) but this Friday night will be different for a lot of reasons, a phone call puts paid to Theo finally telling Jemma how he feels about her! It’s her father, and he’s calling her home. Theo isn’t about to let her face this alone, so off to Scotland for a family reunion. Only it’s not a reunion, it’s more like a bidders market, men are there to woo Jemma!!
Coming home from the nightmare weekend at her parents home, Jemma has no choice, she needs to escape, and a fake marriage might be the answer!
So she tries dating agency, except the dates Jemma goes on just don’t work for her (deep down I expect she doesn’t want anyone else but Theo)
A fake wedding is still the way forward, and Theo volunteers, he can’t stand the thought of anyone else marrying Jemma. And he also realises that he needs to tell her the truth about his feelings for her.
And now they are married, happy that any misunderstandings have been sorted, but will that stop her father? He’s becoming desperate, and desperate men are dangerous!!
Loved the characters in this book, a little unrequited love that gets sorted in the end. Don’t you just love a misunderstanding that gets solved. And a bad guy gets his reward for being the bad guy😉
I’ve read a lot of this authors work, and I’ve liked some more than others.
And I was a little confused with the title of the book, dragon? When everyone says Theo was a fox shifter! But read the story and all will become clear.
A shortish story with the usual angst, maybe a little twist and a happy ending, what more could you want?
