    One thought on “Smolder”

    1. OMG I need book 2 right now!!!!The plot and world building was amazing. Where can you go wrong with DRAGONS who turn into hot men??? And the dragon Council with the Court and all made for a very interesting backdrop. Although I am still a little confused, are wild dragons wild people? Or dragons who never turn into people? Marina for me wavered between really brave to really annoying. She seemed to throw a lot of temper tantrums and be a complete flirt which bothered me a bit. She was supposed t [...]

    2. Okay this was a horrible read---if you were to judge by the amount of missing words, missing letters, misspelled words, misplaced words, and grammatical errors. This book was filled with them. It was disturbing.The beginning of the story really didn't make any sense. In fact, it never actually cleared that up. It was just kind of like slams you into the middle of a bunch of shit and doesn't explain it fully. But it's like, if the book moves on fast enough, maybe the reader will forget all about [...]

    3. oh penelope! its an on going love affair with your books why do you beat me so boldly and then let me heal to only be beaten again!!!its like gringer bread crumbs! Always so full of detail. i know your plotting schemes!!! (lol good laugh) i know youre up to devilish things with this scenes. i can see many tracks now! Oh Marina! her character is strong yet young, i know she still has lots to learn about love and how you will test her with be the greatest journey. she trusts so openning. i worry f [...]

    4. ”Oi! Penelope!” I have a headache from the tons of spelling, grammatical, ”and writing and writing” errors <=== done on purpose, its done in this book several times. I can usually ignore small typos but the errors in this book were distracting! I had to re-read passages and sometimes it took a moment to figure out she meant ”past” and not really ”passed”. I got the book for free so I know I must sound ungrateful, but it's frustrating! What a shame too because I really got into [...]

    5. Okay.ed this one in a few short hours! Let me start off by saying I am a huge Penelope fan. Love her writing and her Rae Wilder Series. Since this one is not considered YA I was super excited to read it. Anyways on with the review Its a story about a girl who while confronted with a less than ordinary life, must learn to come to terms with and overcome panic attacks, and of late her mother's death. If that isn't enough she stumbles upon not one, but three dragons(hot, hot, and did I say hot?) wh [...]

    6. FANTASTIC!!! Best book yet. I've read all of Penelope's novels so far. And I am blown away, to a point fanatical. inspired. She is an incredible writer. Please look past the grammatical errors. We can not all be perfect. I loved the Rae novels but as a writer, she has progressed in Smolder; this is by far her best novel yet. I love the characters. I laughed out loud, (to the point my husband thinks I am legally insane and pretty sure he wants to confinscate my Nook), cried and want to kill some [...]

    7. If you care at all about grammar and all that extra stuff don't read this, because you won't like it. Now if you don't really care like me, then you might slightly enjoy this. It's raw and new; doesn't really have that polished put together feel others have. I think that if the author had taken a little more time to work on this it would have flourished like a very pretty flower. Characters just popped out of nowhere, but I can overlook that. I actually liked that. I liked it, it was good. Somet [...]

    8. 3.5/5; 4 stars; B+This was a pretty good dragon shape shifter fantasy. Some of the plot development seemed too slow but the world building was interesting enough to make up for it. My only complaint is it ended rather abruptly at, what I thought, was an inconvenient place in the story. The next book was supposed to be out a few months ago so hopefully it will be available soon. I an definitely interested in seeing how things go with Marina and Koen and the Aver!

    9. There was DUMB. Other than that, I enjoyed it! There were lots of cute and touching moments and I liked the characters.

    10. Real rating: 2.5 stars UGH. IT WAS SO GOOD WHILE IT LASTED. I loved Marina-she was a really headstrong and kickass character. BUT THEN cut to pg 319 of 423 of the book (on ibooks app) and she just loses her mind. She no longer has control over her emotions and becomes an annoying ass whiny bitch. 1st moment- (view spoiler)[ She sees Koen talking to Katya and gets mad that "he's talking to her without glowering". FACE PALM. She was already told multiple times he has to be fair and not show prefer [...]

    11. “He held up his hand and spread his fingers. "Today I stared at my hand for an hour. Then I turned into a dragon and stared at my claw. Do you know why?""You have gone insane?""Marina's fingers fit perfectly between the fingers of my hand when I am a man. When I was a dragon she would snuggle up to my talons, fit herself into my claw and kiss it sweetly, as if one wrong move wouldn't disembowel her." He smiled at Daniil when he rolled his eyes. "She is terrified of losing me. I didn't realize [...]

    12. ~~~~~~~~Purchased August, 2015CLIFFHANGER WARNING!A pretty good story, plagued withTypos- more than an excusable amountSlow parts - I skimmed some through the training stuffI like Ms Fletcher's writing in 'Venomous', so I thought I would try this one out. I still like her descriptive style and the world-building that she does. But, I felt the dragons' society was more complicated than necessary, and what sane, wealthy Earth girl in their right mind would want to stay there, even for love?I also [...]

    13. Ha! I like the blurb!Wounded, a dragon drops from the sky to crash in front of Marina in an explosion of fire. She does the only reasonable thing a woman can do – she saves his life.The reasonable thing to do is save its life!? It's a friggin' dragon! What if it eats you!? And it dropped in an explosion of fire! So it's on fire, it's a dragon, and the chick approaches it!?Oh well. Maybe that's just me. But it sounds intriguing, so I will give it a go.

    14. So much potential for this one. Dragons are so much better than puny werewolves and shapeshifters.I really hope the sequel will be as entertaining. I dont mind a typo or two, but in this case, I had to re-read a sentence to be able to comprehend. I just hated that. I would have given this more stars.

    15. I'm not rating this because, there was no way I could've finish the entire book. DNF'd it @ 28%First of all Marina was beyond annoying for me. She is 21 but acts like a 13 year old, no thank you. No way I could listen to her for long. And then there were soo soo many typos. And insta-love in one day, when he is in dragon formThe idea behind it was great but the execution not so much.

    16. I was interested in the story itself, I think the concept was rather good and if presented correctly could have made for a great book. But the characters, dear god, the characters, they were completely unappealing to me and turned the whole reading process into a chore. The way Marina reacted to things was absolutely unrealistic. I mean, I'm glad that she's taking everything well and that she did not turn into a blabbering idiot, but for a person who just found a motherfucking dragon on her prop [...]

    17. This books is proof of the ridiculousness of "insta-love" plots. Koen Raad, King of Dragons, falls wounded to earth and is rescued by Marina. It turns out Marina is a high princess in Koen's kingdom but was brought to earth by her mom who abandoned her husband. Koen and Marina experience an insta-connection but Koen doesn't want to bring Marina to his kingdom because he can only be mated to someone who can defeat other fierce females in a competition called Aver and defeat him in battle and he d [...]

    18. I really wanted to like this book, it had so much potential! Now then, I read Penelope Fletcher's Venomous and I really really liked it and I expected this book to be up to par Unfortunately I developed a strong hatred towards the female MC from the get-go: she is bratty, bitchy, whiny, and her emotions were way too rollercoaster-y for my taste.I don't know if I got a pre-proofread print, but the typo mistakes were abundant and blunders with character names (ex: Daniil is speaking but suddenly t [...]

    19. This story was so cringe and eye rolling. "Oh look a big dragon fell down the sky. Let me get closer. It's not like it could eat me or burn me to ashes. That's crazy talk""OMG! It's a dragon! I thought I was dreaming. It's so beautiful I think I'm in love!""I am so going on a trip with this dragon. It's hurt and I must be by it's side to heal him. My friend wont believe this!""Wow! The dragon turned into a handsome man! I'm more in love now.""What!? D; some evil women are trying to kill my man? [...]

    20. As a fantasy book it's good.On the romance front not so much.I remember likinig a previous book by this author so I think I was expecting more from her.The development is fast and slow - romance somewhat fast between them, and in other points the plot is somewhat slow (like her training) but it does add to the fantasy parts instead.What more is the dynamic between the two main characters annoyed me since it was the same on repeat. (sorry but it's the same over and over)I'll have to consider weth [...]

    21. This book started out really nice. A dragon falling out of the sky - go figure. Everything went to shit during and after the sex scene. I mean, who has sex with a crazy stranger you just met? Then afterward, she regrets - typical. This book was not cutting it for me. I struggled to read this book and I haven't even finished reading it yet. I just can't!

    22. Rating: 3.5/5 StarsI don’t mind reading indie novels. I know some people don’t read them just on principle. If you’re like me and can for the most part pass over spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and missing words, you can give this one a try. As soon as I read the word dragons, I had to read it. I love me some dragons. This was a high fantasy romance with dragons and a competition for the right to mate him. I read the first two of the series Smolder being the first and Burn the secon [...]

    23. I got this ebook because it was free - I'm not usually a fan of dragon shifter novels (not all that sure why, actually) but decided to get it anyway as I hadn't come across the author before and wanted to give her a try.I agree with other reviewers on here - while I don't care about the odd spelling or grammatical error, there were a few times when an error made me pause and really notice, which was mildly irritating.The start of the book threw me a bit. I had no idea what was going on at first [...]

    24. Penelope Fletcher's Smolder is an entertaining read if you are willing to suspend any expectation of realistic behaviour (and I don't just mean because it is fantasy). Marina and Koen are another stunning example of insta-love, granted it's also a case of instant hate too. The whole scenario is made more ridiculous by the fact that she is COMPLETELY unfazed by the fact that he is a dragon. This is where my sense of realism is stretched beyond it's brink. Marina isn't afraid of anything. (view sp [...]

    25. Review of Smolder by FletcherI sometimes wonder why authors publish their earlier works… especially unedited works. There is no way that at the time of publication Fletcher didn’t know that it needed waaaaay more editing (and not just for the typos and the grammatical kind). It read like a first draft. Seriously. It was like the author was trying to find the purpose and theme of the story and just left it there. This story had potential (as most stories do), but it was really messy. There is [...]

    26. **May contain spoilers, depending on what you think is a spoiler. Read at your own risk.***Smolder starts out in our lame human world and shows the main character, Marina, watching something fall from the sky. Her fear is practically nonexistent thanks to her mother tirelessly pushing Marina into situations that had helped her overcome any fear and getting rid of her panic attacks. She discovers that there be dragons, though not from the human world. I liked Marina's naivety and her bold outlook [...]

    27. At first it took some time to get into the story and understand the background of the dragons and the history. But I was immediately in love with Marina and her sometimes potty mouth. The mood swings of her were a bit annoying but overall I loved the story so much, I bought book 2 in the middle of it. I'm really curious how she will master the Aver and I wonder about the love triangle between Marina, Koen and Daniil.The story itself was well written and since English is my second language, I can [...]

    28. I initially rated this 4 stars but hadn't read the 2nd book and couldn't work out why so I gave it a re-read with the intention of reading the other book too. I'm not entirely sure why I gave it 4 stars. I loved the concept. And though the pacing was off, I liked the writing - once I managed to get over the many (many) spelling and grammar issues. But, honestly, I don't think I've ever disliked a heroine more. She's a bitch. Her best friend calls her 'Selfish, self-absorbed, proud, stubborn' and [...]
