Refreshingly Intelligent, Heartfelt, Sexy, & Giggle Inducing...
Reviewed in the United States on September 24, 2019
I read so many intensely dark romance books that I am rarely surprised anymore. So, imagine my shock when the sweet, contemporary romance that is "Thunder Thighs" not only surprised the hell out of me, but made me an instant fan of the author, Evie Mitchell!
Mitchell describes this BBW short as being an "over-the-top piece of fluff inspired by big thighs and sexy Vikings..." The description alone made me grin and led me to buy the book. I'm an old fashion Norse girl after all and always enjoy some sexy Viking in my day. However, what Mitchell failed to mention was how charmingly funny this story is in addition to being deliciously sexy.
Oh. My. Goodness. What a wonderful way to end my weekend!
This story is light-hearted, and deeply sentimental. It tugs at your sense of home and gives you the feels in all the right places. Ella and Gunnar are smart, sophisticated, and emotionally complex, a refreshing change from the normally shallow characters so often found in shorts like this. Mitchell gloriously writes Ella as a strong, independent business woman; intelligent and secure in her own skin and place in the world. Gunnar is every bit Ella's equal, co-owner of his family's ship building company; a towering specimen of Norse alpha male, strong, intelligent, and rooted in family. Both looking for their human "home". Gunnar and Ella are perfect for each other, and the God of Thunder and the universe are inclined to agree. Both plotting the course needed for the two of them to cross paths. And what follows is heartfelt, sexy, and giggle inducing.
I could honestly read a dozen books on these two characters alone (**hint, hint Evie Mitchell =D). It would also make my month to see an expanded, full novel length, version of this book. It would make my year to see this book and all the characters within turned into a full-fledged series, with Ella and Gunnar as the catalysts, then moving onto Eric, and so on, and so on, and so on...
THAT'S how much I enjoyed this story!
I am now a huge Evie Mitchell fan! :)
