    I have to say I absolutely love these MateMatch Outcast Books. Ragtown is such a gritty place but it needs love too. These broken Shifters are so much better after receiving Florence’s help. Callen needed to be loved and he needed a clan. His mate provided both.

    This is an OK shifter romance, but it was too short to have as much character development as I like. I wanted more backstory on both Callan and April. This one gets 3 stars from me. Callan was a bit hard to like at first. He thought he was dying, but was too proud to talk about it, so he ended up being standoffish and rude to his friends. He did get better after he decided to rescue April, but he was still too proud to share his problems for a while. I liked April, and thought it was great that sh This is an OK shifter romance, but it was too short to have as much character development as I like. I wanted more backstory on both Callan and April.

He did get better after he decided to rescue April, but he was still too proud to share his problems for a while. I liked April, and thought it was great that she figured out how to help Callan save his dragon and himself. I was glad when they found their HEA. I thought the ending to this story was a bit of a surprise, but I won't give spoilers. My rating system is below. 1 star -- Hated it, or did not finish. I usually only give this rating if some of the content is truly objectionable to me, like if one of the main characters does something really awful, and gets away with it. 2 stars -- Didn't like it. This rating usually means that I thought the writing wasn't very good, the editing was terrible, I didn't like the characters, or it had other major flaws. 3 stars -- I liked it, but had some minor issues with it. This rating means that there were minor editing issues, the story needed more character development, it was just too unrealistic, or had some other fairly minor issue. The majority of books I read get this rating – I do not consider it a bad rating. 4 stars -- I liked it a lot. This is a high rating for me, and I rarely give a higher one. 5 stars -- I loved it, and will probably read it again. Very few books are good enough to get this rating from me. The ones that do are usually classics.

    The books in this series just keep getting better and better. I absolutely love the Ragtown gang, complete with all the trouble they seem to get themselves into. You have to love Ms. Florence and her mate matching talents when it comes to all of the oddball shifters that flock to Ragtown for one reason or another. Ms. Hawkes certainly knows how to tell a tale, full of excitement, painful experiences and of course, lots of love.

Ms. Hawkes certainly knows how to tell a tale, full of excitement, painful experiences and of course, lots of love. In this episode, Callan, a broken dragon of regal heritage, is deemed the winner of the mate match. But is he too broken to take up the challenge of not only finding her, but rescuing her? April prays for her knight in shining armor to reach and rescue her every day. She's been kept in what feels like the tower of doom for over six months now. Will he ever come? So much excitement and energy. An awesome read. I am looking forward to the next in this great series. I was gifted a copy of this book and am voluntarily giving my honest opinion.

    I’ve read the entire series and enjoyed them as the stories they are but this book was disappointing. It lacked depth, it’s generally very patchy with things just feeling very random and misplaced. The plot in itself could have been a great read if it had been done well but it read more like one of those games you play in an English language class where everyone writes a paragraph including those that are clearly going to fail the class.

A lot of things were added in last minute that were never mentioned earlier in the book leaving me with more questions and irritation. Honestly the whole thing was clearly rushed perhaps that’s because there was time crunch etc but as a reader I’d prefer to wait for a well written and thought out book than something slapped together.

    I loved this book it was absolutely amazing. I was unable to put the book down till I had read every single page from the very first page all the way through to the very last page. Callan is a big, strong, sexy alpha dragon shifter whose dragon is dying. April is a beautiful, feisty librarian that is desperately in need of rescue. When these two meet you will be totally amazed at what happens next.

    Another intense story Callan has lost his clan, his home and his will to live. April, his mate, has been kidnapped by a clan of dragons searching for their Alpha.

    Wow I think this was the best book in this series. This story had more action. April has been kidnapped by a group of rogue dragons. Florence, Ragtown's resident matchmaker has located Callen's mate. Guess what, you got it, it's April. He has to rescue her. Wonderful story Callen is struggling with his dragon, after the battle that took his family and his clan he has become weaker, and weaker. This should be a happy time for him, he has a mate but will she except him. He is a pitiful, sad, broken Wow I think this was the best book in this series. This story had more action.

    Ok at best - just nothing great. Callan goes from not ever wanting a mate to all in on a human mate with no explanations. April was a boring human librarian who was really no match for a powerful dragon shifter; her "help" for Callan was laughable throughout the supposed drama of the story. I just didn't buy the match or story at all. Story not worth $.99 much less $2.99; for free it might be ok if anyone really wants to read the entire series.

    I really liked this book. It made me laugh through most of it. The story was funny as it poked fun at Dragons and their stereotypes while giving a good story for Callan, a dragon shifter from Ragtown, his mate. I have to say I loved April. Not only does April need to be rescued, but so too does Callan in the end. I well written amusing story.

    Ahh yes, Ariana Hawkes had me at fated romance and a dragon prince. Luckily she then kept me thanks to a story in Dragon Mate: Dragon Shifter Romance (MateMatch Outcasts Book 5 that was really quite wonderful, lead by two perfectly crafted characters in April and Callan and a story as exciting as it is romantic - and it’s very, very romantic. Also very, very recommended.

    Broken Wings A beautifully written story. I'm enjoying this series. Our hero has problems he's been hurt in a fight that cost him his family and almost his life. He can't shift like he should and he needs to save his mate. Plenty of action and very little sexual content. Reads fairly quickly. Broken Wings A beautifully written story. I'm enjoying this series.

    This one was my least favorite of the series so far. Not that it was bad but I just didn't connect with the characters as much as others. Callan is a dragon shifter who for the most part has lost the ability to shift. April is his mate who is a librarian trapped by a dragon clan. I just really wished more had been developed between these two. This one was my least favorite of the series so far.
