Dragon shifter Edra has always lived to serve and protect—in ages past, as a knight, and in the modern world as a mytho liaison to the San Francisco PD. Behind the scenes he safeguards the mythos community from scandal—and further human hatred. When the eggs of a rare greater dragon are stolen, Edra must find and return them before the mother razes the city.

Edra’s partner, Jordan, has just been promoted, and he’s on the trail of several stolen mythos artifacts. Together, they track the eggs to a colony of mermaids living in the bay near Alcatraz Island.

But trying to separate a mermaid from her treasure is asking for trouble.

As Edra and Jordan grow closer, they test the bounds of human-mythos relationships. But Jordan isn’t ready to mate for life, and Edra won’t pretend to be human for Jordan’s friends. With the hills on fire and a storm brewing in the bay—and in their bed—something’s got to give.

 ** I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR MY READING PLEASURE **
 POV: 3rd person, dual POV
 
 I absolutely LOVED this!
 Greed and Other Dangers is an incredible continuation of the story begun in Lust and Other Drugs. The Mythos series is shaping up to be another fantastic story from T.J. Nichol's imagination. Full of magic, mystery, and desire, it's a combination of all great things in the paranormal world.

 The book begins with the same Prologue as Book 1 – setting up the world for anyone who has spent some time since reading the first book. It also gives a Previously chapter, which lets readers catch up, before delving back into this complex and clever worldbuilding. I loved that they were included, but I didn't require either as I binged straight from Book 1 into Book 2.

 After book 1, I was already madly in love with Jordan and Edra, but this book cemented them in my heart. Their adventures within the Mythos community, and their budding relationship with each other, were nothing short of engaging and endearing. Their sizzling relationship offered constant twists and turns, at times sweet and at times sinful, it's everything you could hope for.

 I was surprised to see Carly's prejudices, but unsurprised by Ardel's caution and wariness. The continuation of the mermaid plot and the reminder of the satyr plotline from Book 1 both made sure that this felt like a true continuation. The exploration of the greater dragons was a really nice touch, as was Sinner's change of attitude. I have to admit, I'm intrigued if Lyo survived the collapse afterall, as it would be perfect timing for him to pop-up again now that Edra is mated again. I can't wait to see how that part of their lives pans out and whether Lyo's memory (or the dragon himself) will appear later.

 The exploration of Jordan's addiction to Bliss was excellently handled. The conflict, the stress, and the way that it potentially compromised his relationship with Edra was so nicely explored that I never felt off-footed or disinterested. I loved seeing them fight their way through the problem, try to find solutions, and actually talk about their problems. So many books use the miscommunication or misunderstanding aspect as a way to separate a couple or offer angst, but this book kept to the character's personalities and made sure they showed the maturity and care for their relationship that brought them together to talk it out. They both tried to find solutions, at every way through their relationship, even before there was one.

 I love that the two books can be binge read and feel like one solid book, rather than various issues of the same series. Not many authors can manage to do that, but T.J. Nichols proved themselves capable of this when I first read the Studies in Demonology series. I'm now secure in knowing that I can pick up any of their books and never fail to be engaged and captivated.

 Though each book contains a complete storyline, I love that each and every one is connected and continues on from the next, crafting a true series. And I'm beyond thrilled that there is another book to come. I can't wait to read more from Jordan and Edra.

 Greed and Other Dangers is a five-star riot of magic, mystery, and romance that gets your pulse racing, your hands sweating, and leaves you craving more. Like Bliss it creeps under your skin and brings nothing but pleasure. I can't wait for the next book, and to get these in paperback, to join the Studies in Demonology trilogy already on my shelf.

 Favourite Quotes

 “Edra was still looking straight ahead, as though he couldn’t bear to even glance at Jordan. His heart was filled with broken glass, and every beat cut and bled.”

 “He was fracturing, and great crevasses were opening up as his world, the one he’d made for himself, was destroyed.”
