Review of Nordic Lessons by Christine Edwards
Nordic Lessons by Christine Edwards
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was really excited about the prospect of reading this book. I’ve read dozens of MC books, but they have all been US-based, so I found the idea of a non-American MC club intriguing. Don’t think I am so naïve as to believe that motorcycle clubs are a strictly American phenomena, because I don’t. I’ve just never encountered an MC book set anywhere other than in the US and I must admit that Norway never crossed my mind as a potential setting. And this is where I make the even more embarrassing admission that I failed to put two and two together to realize that an MC club in Norway meant … VIKING BIKERS!!!!! OH! MY! GOD!!!!!!
If you think bikers are hot, wait until you meet Mikkel. Freaking heck, I was in heaven reading this book. There is not a thing about it that I didn’t like. Mikkel alone makes Nordic Lessons a 5-star read for me, but then Ms. Edwards makes the book a complete reading pleasure with every other element. I adore Elora. She is sweet and after getting over her initial shock of encountering a modern-day warrior, she sees past Mikkel’s exterior to the man within. She is as drawn to him as he is to her. They complement one another beautifully and this makes for some seriously hot sex scenes, especially as Mikkel teaches Elora to tap into her submissive nature.
Add to the beauty that is Mikkel, Ms. Edwards includes a great cast of characters – including one uncomfortably realistic bad guy. There is just the right amount of drama between Elora and her brother. And while THE incident that occurs is remedied rather quickly, that nature of it called for a quick resolution and the author delivered it without the scene feeling rushed. I found Nordic Lessons to be an extremely enjoyable read, and while not as gritty as some of the other MC books I have read, in no way did it feel less than. This is a definite re-read for me and I intend to add the first book in the series, Naughty in Norway, to my reading list and cannot wait for the next book in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
