The Boss by Abigail Owen is a dragon shifter romance book. It is my first book like this and I found it to be really Interesting. I really enjoyed Delaneys strong and feisty personality. I loved how she actively pursued Finn even when he was fighting off his attractions and not wanting to just go with it. Overall I really liked the writing style and flow of the book. It was really easy to get lost in. All in all I would definitely read others by this author. 4 star rating.
The Boss (Fire’s Edge #1)
By Abigail Owen
Rated 5 stars!!
Wowzer! Wow! Wow! I LoVe this story and did you see that cover?!! This book is outstanding! It has it all! Dragons( of course I had to mention them first), danger, love, fear, hate and a strong sassy woman. These dragons (all 10 of them) who work as enforcers are all very different. I loved learning about each of them. The colors, the shift, the man and beast. How can they be scary when they are so darn adorable! They all have different personalities but they have one thing in common…..they view each other as family.
Did I love Finn? YES! His story drew me in. I couldn’t get enough of him and his commanding voice. (Well he is the “Boss”. ) He has had a rough past and that is leading him to be cautious of any future. Delaney…..Delaney….Delaney! You are a favorite! It’s not too often i have a favorite girl. But Dang you are so sassy and strong! I love your attitude! You blended in so nicely with the guys..it was kinda fun to watch (read). When you stood on that mountain and said—-those “words” to Finn I was so proud of you and all that you have overcome. Simply wonderful!
My only issue (and it’s pretty tiny) is the traitor and the Rogue. Both of these were briefly touched upon but then really nothing else was mentioned. I am going to assume it’s for setting up one of the next books. Don’t let this deter you from this book. The story is still amazing because of the connections all the characters have with each other. On a side note I enjoyed meeting Lindi (Drake’s Sister) and her “boys”.
This is my first book by this author and it will not be the last! I am looking forward to (and can hardly wait)reading about all these dragon shifters in the future (hint hint). The writing flows so nicely. I made connections to this crew without even trying. Even though it’s a large cast I didn’t feel overwhelmed by meeting “the guys” all at once. That tells me how engaging the writing is. The story was different but yet something I am familiar with and the character development was very good. The characters have a nice structure among them. The fun and bantering is what makes a great book to read.
When is the next one??
I love finding into and falling Paranormal books that have a good taste of Romance. I had the ability of reading The Boss by Abigail Owens, and let’s just say that I can’t believe all that it offered me, as the reader.
I fell in love with the characters, as well as the story development. I couldn’t believe that the author was able to manage such a feat – building the world that she did, full of magic that was of it’s own kind. This was most definitely considered a 4 Star Book for me!

The Boss by Abigail Owen is a paranormal story about Dragon shifters. I have to say that I love stories that have mythical creatures and even better when they are human/mythical creatures. This story is a fast pace read. If you start this story you will be pulled into the story and will be hard pressed to put it down until the very last word. Abigail Owen does an amazing job keeping the story moving but having a great amount of detail. Finn is a dragon shifter, who has only one mate for life. Finn has had his mate but has lost her and vows never to get so close to anyone else. Well then there is Delaney who is a spit fire. She is a woman who know what she wants and will go after it. She does have a great personality and Finn is trying to keep his distance. Will Delaney get Finn to lower his shield around his heart? I cannot wait to see what comes next.
The Boss, by Abigail Owen, is the first book in the Fire’s Edge series. This paranormal romantic suspense novel features dragon shifters and fire abounds! I liked how the author set the stage for the story and how events unfolded. The introduction of the main and supporting characters was thorough and not overwhelming, fitting seamlessly in. Finn and Delaney were perfect, from their personalities, to how they met and the sparks that were sizzling – it was amazing. The drama that is introduced into this story to set up the series was well thought out and laid out in the book. Abigail Owen immediately drew me into this story, garnering my interest and maintaining to the extent that I enjoyed it and I look forward to reading what’s coming next in this series!

The Boss is an amazing opening to Abigail Owen’s Fire’s Edge series! It is the very first book I have read by this writer and I cannot wait for getting my hands on the next one in the series! I fell in love with her writing style from page one – with such few and selected words, she took me there, I could feel Finn’s pain and his heart turning into a stone.
The Boss is the story of enforcer dragon shifters team leader, THE BOSS, Finn Conleth and Delaney Hamilton who keeps starting those freaky fires! What a flaming nightmare, literally and figuratively! I love dragon stories and I loved how different Abigail Owen’s dragon world is, it is a totally different take on it – dragons who are firefighters! At the same time, why not? They will be putting out fires and keep the secret of dragons getting out!
I loved the characters, their romance and their struggle with their past, their kink … the action, the suspense, the fight between the dragons and the baddies and the fire … oh my, the fire! I am looking forward to picking up the next one in the series and I am sure the writer will bring even more heat as this is supposedly the prequel!
The Boss was a great 5 star read and book 1 in the Fire’s Edge series.
Finn is the leader of a group of dragon shifters. We get a glimpse into a very heartbreaking scene with Finn that shows us why he’s against finding a new mate. But when he meets Delaney there is something that draws him in, the need to protect her.
Delaney has tried to flee her stalker and unexplained fires by moving across country. When another fire starts at the winery she is working on, she is terrified. There is something about Finn that she feels like she can finally open up to someone without feeling like she’s crazy.
Will Finn and the team understand? Can they help her?
When they find out who/what is really after Finn things take a twist.
There is so much more to this great read. Finn and Delaney end up giving into their attraction and it’s very steamy or should I say fire starting. There is danger, suspense, mystery, and so much more. I loved Delaney’s sassiness and strength. All of the secondary characters were great and the dragons sounded really hot and were just like a huge family. I can’t wait to read more from this series and I wouldn’t mind some more from Finn and Delaney as well.
This is my first read from Abigail Owen and I was pleasantly surprised. I was pulled right in and didn’t want to stop until I was done.

The Boss by Abigail Owen is book One in the Fire’s Edge series is an addicting start to this paranormal romance series! It is a fast paced steamy shifter story that is well written and flows nicely. I mean who doesn’t like a good dragon shifter, alpha males, sexy firefighters story that you can sink your teeth into and come away needing more. Abigail has a series where the plot that is as thrilling as it is exciting and engaging and she ended with a mystery for you to ponder on. I really enjoyed this story that has a bit of everything, twists and turns, mystery and hope, fear and love. I can see the makings of some interesting stories to come. I am so looking forward to read more from Abigail. Can’t wait to read book two.

I loved this story. The love between Delaney and Finn was undeniable. I love how protective of her he instantly was and how much she obvious leaned to him. I felt for Delaney also becuase of all the weird horrible things that were happening to her. I can’t imgaine going through what she did and also doing so all alone. This was a very well written story that had lots of meat to it. It wasn’t a simple story, there were many different layers to it and I enjoyed every single one of them. I definitely will continue the series and read more from this author.
The Boss is the first exciting story in the Fire’s Edge series by Abigail Owen. If this book is anything to go by, this series is not only off to an amazing start, but is also set to be phenomenal. This is a dragon shifter story with a difference- it has its own original and unique spin on dragon shifters that makes this story stand apart from others in the same genre. This is a wonderful paranormal romance, that also has an action-packed, sexy and suspenseful story woven through it. The story pulled me in right from the beginning and I became completely invested in the characters and the outcome of their story. I couldn’t have put it down, even if I had wanted to- my need to find out how everything played out had me devouring the whole book in one afternoon- and I absolutely loved it!!! This may be my first read from Ms. Owen, but it most certainly won’t be my last, as I have already gone back to one-click more of her works for me to enjoy. I really can’t wait to see where this series goes and discover more about these brilliant characters!!
Delaney Hamilton has moved across the country hoping for a fresh start, finding a great job co-managing a beautiful vineyard/winery and a place to stay. But her hopes of leaving the past behind are shattered when the fires that were plaguing her in Vermont start up again. She contemplates moving again, but decides that she’s done running, as it didn’t seem to work, anyway. Waking up with a fire burning all around her is a scary and confusing situation to find herself in. and what she doesn’t realise is when the sexy firefighters arrive to douse the fire, her world as she knew it is about to change, forever!
Finn Conleth and his crew were working in the area when they get alerted to a fire burning at the winery. They arrive on scene to put out the flames but find so much more than they bargained for. Finn is haunted by a traumatic experience, losing his mate in the process. This hardened his heart and made him vow never to take another mate, as he couldn’t endure any more pain. He is the leader of the Huracán’s – who are a crack team Enforcers who tackle any trouble caused by dragons, especially fires. The last thing that Finn expects when they arrive at the latest fire is to find someone who not only threatens his heart, but who also sparks his protective nature. He knows there is much more to her story and what has been happening to her- and he’s determined to get to the bottom of it all. But danger is stalking Delaney which soon threatens everything he values. Will he get to the bottom of it all? Can he keep them all safe? Will Delaney help him regain the part of himself he’d lost all those years ago? What does the future hold for these two?
This story was so much more than what I was expecting- from the incredible storytelling and wonderfully written tale, to the complex and lovingly crafted characters, then there were more than a few heart-in-my-mouth moments that had me scrambling to get answers, as well as some incredibly sexy and smokin’ hot scenes that left sizzle marks on the pages- making this book everything I could ask for and more! It’s emotional, touching, romantic, sweet, and HOT- a ‘Must Read’!!
I highly recommend this book and Ms. Owen! I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of this series!!!
Thank you, Ms. Owen!!
