    This is one book that I had a hard time with. There were parts that I liked and parts that really frustrated me. I liked the storyline. The whole adventure aspect of finding the Eye of the Dragon was really a good plot. I also liked what the Eye could do to those that came near. It was unique and what kept me reading till the end when I wanted to stop 30 pages in. What I really got frustrated with in regards to the story was all the sex scenes. Don't get me wrong. I like a little spice in my books This is one book that I had a hard time with. There were parts that I liked and parts that really frustrated me. I liked the storyline.

I like a little spice in my books. It just seemed like you would read five pages of sex for every one or two of none. It was making it so that the book was boring. I would have loved a lot more storyline. I did finish the story though. I can't say that I won't try another book by the author either. I think I would. I am just hoping that it doesn't go quite the same way.

    I was only able to get through the first sixty pages. All this book has to offer is sex, broken up by one or two lines of bad dialogue followed by more sex. Not my idea of a good read. This is my second attempt at trying to enjoy/finish this book, and while I did get further this time around, I just can't continue with it, I'd end up hurting myself. Eye of the Dragon gets moved to the abandoned bookshelf. I was only able to get through the first sixty pages.

Cameron Davis has an arcane project resulting from years of research, a find of such huge potential that he doesn’t want to share it. M. Poe, known simply as Poe, is drawn to this beautiful younger man and thinks he can help him – and possibly profit from it, too. As our two heroes make their way into the rocky wastes of the high Utah desert, they are joined by two other couples, one linked to Poe by an old friendship, the other tied by blood and tradition to the very treasure Cameron is hunting. None of them fully understand the power of what they’re dealing with, and it will take all of their wits to survive. It’s a good plot, and B.A. Tortuga knows how to write both romance and fast-paced adventure. I really liked all of her characters. Poe should be suspect, but in fact the author draws him in such a way that you know he’s a man of integrity. Cameron is all sweet, scholarly innocence, caught up in the romance of his adventure without understanding where research gives way to danger. Max, Poe’s favorite ex and longtime friend, brings his blythe little boyfriend, Morgan, whose uncanny knowledge of obscure things never ceases to amaze him. Both of them worry that Poe has gotten into something dangerous – and they’re not wrong. Finally, Thom and Simon, the slender Chinese man and the big loud Scottish redhead – lovers and lifelong friends, each of them tied in a different way to the Eye of the Dragon. As the story unfolds, we get snippets of the background story that drives the novel: an eccentric Scottish lordling with ambitions in America, and a mysterious beauty named Wang Jin, “the king’s jewel.” But what was Wang Jin actually, and what sort of power does she still hold more than a century after she and her entourage disappeared in the Utah desert? And this is the problem: the book felt like it was fifty percent sex – between the three pairs of lovers, at every drop of a hat. It makes sense at the start, when Poe is seducing the willing Cameron. Thereafter, however, the sex scenes become increasingly distracting and actually intrusive. Just as the author has tantalized us with some eerie detail about the caravan that carried Wang Jin through the mountains, all the forward action stops so that some of the boys can get busy with each other. The end result, for me, was that I couldn’t really settle into the spooky, paranormal part of the story, which should have been given far greater importance in the writing and not used as a backdrop to an erotic romance. The power of the paranormal story is diluted, and the impact of the great characters – each of whom is important to all of the others – is diminished as well. I think of a novel like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and imagine what that would have been like if everyone in the book stopped every other chapter to have extended scenes of physical intimacy that were unrelated to the plot. Not helpful. The Eye of the Dragon is a wonderful, creepy story idea, but its impact was all left to the last twenty pages. It didn’t get the long, careful buildup of tension that it deserved. I understand that part of the m/m market demands a lot of sex; but sometimes that demand does a disservice to talented writers like B.A. Tortuga.

    I have mixed emotions about this book. The premise was good, the blurb was intriguing, I liked the idea of the adventure and mystery and I liked the characters. For me, it was just oo much sex. Don't get me wrong I like some sex in my stories and I love this author's style of writing it, but I would have like lots more story and the actual explicit sex toned down a little. A few scenes would have been plenty. I also recommend you read Oil and Water or get the set and read that one first so you kno I have mixed emotions about this book.

A few scenes would have been plenty. I also recommend you read Oil and Water or get the set and read that one first so you know who Poe is and later in the book, Max and Morga who become kinda important. There are also two other characters, Simon and Thom, whom it seems I should have already known but couldn't place. You do get a little of their backstory as the book goes on but, I would have liked more of that in place of some of the heavy sex scenes. Then we have the bits about the thing they are searching for that seem to be other characters, then later voices and dreams and it got a little confusing to me... now having said all this I did read through because #1 I love this author and her stories and just knew it would be good and I wasn't disappointed. #2 It was unusual with a touch of supernatural twist that intrigued me. #3 I had to know what they were looking for and what happens with Cam. If you like a good romance, adventure, a touch of supernatural, and lots of hot man-sex this is for you.
