Grimbold Drake, influential patriarch of the Drake family, revels in his solitary life of order—a life which is thrown into chaos when his son pays him an unexpected visit, bringing with him a broken but gorgeous young man more than a millennium Grimbold’s junior. A man Grimbold instantly finds himself yearning to fix, to protect, and to claim.

Meek, subservient, and eager to please, Wally Brand doesn’t doubt the tales he’s been told of the cruel and deceitful Amethyst clan, so when he’s forcibly taken from his home and entrusted to Grimbold Drake—the most powerful Amethyst dragon of all—he knows he won’t be long for this world. Only there’s a gleam in Grimbold’s eyes when he looks Wally’s way and a tenderness to his touch that Wally can’t understand.

All he knows is one thing: whether Grimbold means him harm or not, if he can be good to his dragon captor, maybe, just maybe, he’ll get out of this mess alive.

My review:

I'm crying. 

Because I was so so happy when i found out that Grimbold...i mean GRIMBOLD got his book and HEA. I couldn't breath when i got the ARC of this book. Really, i was over the moon! Not kidding about the breathing issue, lol. 

Let's take a look back at my last review, and see what my last words were : "And i NEED Grimbold's book! I am the only one? I want to see that old dragon find love and his mate again! And to see Geoffrey and the others faces when Grimbold'll have baby dragons again lol. My imagination is endless lol. " - review about Mate - 

So I can say my dream come true?! ... Mostly.

And this is the other reason why i'm crying.

Because it was Grimbold's book, but not the story I was hoping for. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but i didn't felt that amazing and right feeling which I felt with the others. And definitley not happy at the ending... spoiler - no baby dragons.

I was happy reading the book, and I loved it very much, until not so much. It was so short and everything was in a hurry. And I hate when the ending is hurried and we don't get the deepness of the story and of the love. I was so sad. So while i got Grimbold, i didn't got the story I was hoping for. Sad story, but I can get over it...after a while.

Swallow is a 30,000 word steamy omegaverse mpreg-ish romance set following the events of the Forbidden Desires series. It contains a broken young man who badly needs love, a curmudgeonly dragon with a heart of gold, new nicknames, familiar faces, and the sweetest dog known to dragonkind. For maximum enjoyment, Swallow is best read as a companion piece to the Forbidden Desires series.
