Viking Raid (Replay #1) by Nia Farrell

This is a quick, hot read. I would place it more in the erotica genre than erotic romance, as it lacked development of any credible relationship between Gunner and Brianna. However it was steamy, easy to read and entertaining enough in a bubble-gum and candy-floss way, sweet and flavoursome at the time but not long lasting. I wasn’t convinced as to why a virgin would choose a public play scene with a man she really didn’t know as the place to lose said virginity.


If the author had explored Brianna’s decision more, which on paper felt like a very impulsive choice that didn’t hold water, this would have improved the story. I got the impression that losing her virginity in public would not have been her ideal choice. So why did she? The reason given within the story was one that would quickly have been reversed in real life. Exploring the decision and Brianna’s feelings would have not only strengthened the plot, but would also have given this book real depth.


99 pages just isn’t long enough to do more than give the bare bones of a tale. A novella has to sacrifice something, and in this case it was getting to truly know our hero and heroine, so that instead we could have several very hot and heavy scenes. If you go in not expecting anything more than to be lightly entertained, then you will enjoy this. I got it free in A Taste of Submission, by Pandora Spock, so it was a win-win all round for me.
