Review: Norseman's Deception (The Norsemen Sagas Book 2) by Gianna Simone


I've been in a book slump for months, so I'm trying to get back into reading something aside from work stuff by volunteering as a reviewer.  This book was provided by the Author through the BDSM group on Goodreads in return for an honest review.

Norseman's Deception by Gianna Simone
Published: Jan. 02, 2016
Words: 80,280
ISBN: 9781311966506
 
Norseman's Deception is a classic bodice ripper, with oodles of forced sex that becomes consensual as the story matures.  I haven't read a story like this since dipping into my mum's Mills and Boon novels, so it was pleasantly familiar.

The plot is pretty straightforward, with the feisty, beautiful Thora running away from a forced marriage to the evil Hersir being rescued by Ari, a rugged handsome hero who's got problems of his own after being falsely accused. No spoilers but you can guess how it comes together.

Norseman’s Deception is exactly what you’d expect from the cover. The attraction in books like these lies in their genre. All the glances are hot, all the heroines toss their hair, and it's adjectives galore.  I enjoyed it. You sink into a book like this to relax, and Gianna Simone delivers exactly what’s promised.

It's charmingly written, and where the old books used to rely on kisses and sighs, this one gets right into it, with lots of sweaty, heaving, I-hate-loving-you passion. The wolves Kati and Kata added a nice touch too, letting us see Ari’s warm side throughout.

It's a fun, fast read.
