Avid Reader☆☆☆☆
M/F Romance – some power exchange

Thor is a hotelier who is known for his sexual prowess. Despite being known for his sexual exploits, he realizes that he has never truly been in a relationship that was give on both sides.

Margot is a professor who is doing research and in doing that, she goes to Thor's hotel to explore the whys and hows of people's sexual appetites.

This story is not super well-developed. It's more about analyzing the attraction that Thor and Margot have with each other. They have some very intense and steamy scenes, but the overall story is mainly snippets between their sexual exploits.

I think that this would have been a five-star story for me if there had been more about their individual selves. However, I enjoyed the dynamic between them too. Each was able to be a better self with each other in their lives.

American professor Margot Cavendish is in Iceland to learn the sexual culture, but she was not ready to be taught the things about herself that Thor teaches her.

Thor Ragnarsson runs the Hotel Viking in Reykjavik, where all you fantasies of the flesh can come true. When he gets around Margot, he wants his own fantasies to become real.

These two are total opposites and they work hard at not wanting the other. Margot doesn't think love is worth it and Thor knew after one night that he was in love, but he needed to prove to her that love was worth it.

I love the heat and passion between these two but would have like more story development, more background, or more future, I don't know, just something more. It seemed all about her research and not them most of the time.

Anyway, if you are looking for a quick, steamy story, then bring along something cool to drink, sit in front of the A/C or a fan, and read this one. It is a really good story.

This is such a hot read that I am surprised the Icelandic glaciers haven't all melted! Thor and Margot are such unlikely bedfellows, yet from an interview which is extended due to a snow storm, they burn up the sheets.

Margot is intellectual and inexperienced, whereas Thor is world-weary and very cynical. She may research sexual issues but has very little practical knowledge. Thor most certainly has the knowledge, but as a recreational act... so when feelings get involved, they are both thrown!

This is a super sexy read because it does engage both the brain and the heart... have a cold drink to hand (at least!).

It took me a while to get into this book, but when I did it was a pretty hot read.

Straight-laced professor Margot Cavendish is in Iceland doing research on the sexual cultures and feminism. That's what brings her to Hotel Viking, where she meets Thor Ragnarsson.

The couple couldn't be more different; however, when they get to the bedroom, the sparks start to fly.

Like I said, the book is pretty hot and an easy read. I would have liked a little more character development.

Overall a three-star read for me.
