First off, before you start reading this book, make sure you have a nice big cold beverage ready. This story is HOT!
Margot and Thor couldn’t be more opposites if they tried. Margot is a professor from the University of Ohio researching Iceland’s reputation for being the most feminist country in the world and how the country’s hookup culture intersects with those feminist values. Thor owns Hotel Viking, known for fulfilling people’s sexual fantasies. Margot has no desire for a relationship and doesn’t want or need a man in her life. Thor is everything Margot disliked about men. When Margot is waiting to interview Thor, she finds herself stranded at the hotel during a snow storm. When Margot spends the night with Thor, all in the name of an experiment, Margot discovers a side of herself she never knew she had. Once the weekend is over and Margot and Thor go back to their normal lives, they can’t seem to stop thinking about each other.
This book took me on a journey to a place I ever would have thought of going. Iceland. I never knew anything about the country or culture, so this was a learning experience for me. At first I wasn’t sure how the story would actually turn out with all of the intimate scenes in the beginning of the book, but I found myself really getting into it. Margot and Thor both had interesting backgrounds that helped form their characters and the story. The dialogue was a bit brainy for me as I had to look up a couple words, but I understand that was because Margot was so intelligent. The wording fit her character. Thor was an interesting character too and I really liked learning more about him. Overall, this is a fun book to read, but only if you are open to a very passionate story.
Thank you to Harlequin and NetGalley for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
