The Last Slayer by Nadia Lee - 18 +

From Carina Press:
Ashera del Cid is a talented demon hunter, but when she kills a demigod's pet dragon, the hunter becomes the hunted. Her only potential ally is Ramiel, a sexy-as-hell demon. Now the two must work together to battle dragons and demigods...and the chemistry crackling between them.
Ramiel has his own reasons for offering Ashera his protection. He knows her true identity and the real reason the demigods want her dead. What he can't predict is how she'll react when she discovers he knew who she was all along...
Ashera is shocked to discover that she is the only daughter of the last slayer. To claim her destiny, she and Ramiel must join forces to face down danger and outwit their enemies. Only then will she be able to truly accept her legacy...

The Bad:
I did not find Ashera to be a good heroine.  I did not really care about her or her situation until late in the book.  I thought the world of demi-gods and dragons could have been more fleshed out.  I also needed more of an explanation of how Ashera is who she is - or is destined to be. 

The Good:
Hot demi-gods and dragons?  Who doesn't enjoy a story like that.  The story was interesting and I wanted to understand more about the Ashera's world.  According to Nadia Lee's website, The Last Slayer is the first in a trilogy, so I am hopeful that the next book will give more answers.
