Review: Her Fiery Viking by AJ Tipton

The heat is on when a cursed Viking clashes with the woman of his dreams. 

Over a thousand years ago, a witch hexed a family of Viking warriors, each with one of the four elements. They live with these curses today, doomed to suffer for their past crimes forever. 

Mikkel might just be too hot to handle. Working as a well-muscled demolitions specialist, he must do everything he can to stay in control. If he allows himself to grow angry, his curse kicks in, making Mikkel burst into an uncontrollable ball of fire. After centuries of tragedy, he fears the fury within him will endanger anyone he lets get too close. 

When Joanna--a smart, sexy engineer angry at the world--explodes into his life, Mikkel can’t resist her smoldering allure. Has the time finally come to let someone in to embrace his fire? Or will they both be scorched by a fiery passion? 

This mature romance includes incendiary bar room shenanigans, high-speed car escapades, and a blazing romance that beats all odds. 

This STANDALONE novella is part of the "Her Elemental Viking" series which can be read in any order. There are no cliffhangers, and each short ends as it should: happily ever after.

There’s an important saying in the literary world… show don’t tell. 
That saying right there is why this is a lower rated review. I wanted to love this story, but sadly I found it hard to finish. With all that was happening I still was unable to lose myself and see the story playing out with beautiful description and depth. The characters were also lacking and because of that I found it hard to love them which for me is what makes a great story. I have to love the characters and I just didn’t care about Mikkel or Joanna. As a lover of all forms of paranormal and romance I should have been pulled into a story about an immortal Viking. Because yeah, yum, right? Not the case here. Not to mention that Joanna came off a little Schizophrenic (tasering a co-worker on her first day at the job) 
The good thing I can say is that with a little work I think the author could create a stellar world that would pull at the imagination and paint a very vivid story line, had she shown us more rather than telling us everything.
So with that I unfortunately I have to give this short Novella a 2.5-3 star rating .
