    Sexy with interesting characters, and stellar descriptions, Thunder was an enjoyable story. Unfortunately I found I couldn’t get into it the way I wanted. The plot seemed to come up a little short and I couldn’t follow the fast track path to love. I think there was too much time spent on the antagonistic behavior, between the two leads because it left a bitter taste in my mouth long after we’d moved forward in the story. That being said, I’m the kind who can on occasion hold a grudge, so please don’t let that stop you. There was plenty about this story to love.

    Veronica Hadwicke is a young, widowed witch who’s built walls so high people don’t think anything exists beyond them. Wealthy, haughty, and dare I say it, uppity, she rubbed me the wrong way from the first page. Then the curtain fell, and I saw the “Wizard.” Scared out of her mind by the mysterious noises that come in the night she’s clinging to Sean for company and safety. The attractive man presses all her buttons. But since he’s made his disdain known she turns to Madame Eve’s at One Night Stand.

    Her contractor happens to be Sean, a womanizer who refuses to give his heart. Renovating the old mansion for Veronica he’s developed an inexplicable crush. She’s a hot number, but cold as ice, or so he thinks until a late night phone call changes everything.

    Overall this is a pretty well written story.  It was sexy and sweet with compelling characters that I wanted to get to know even better.  This book is part of Decadent Publishing’s 1Night Stand series, but also the second of the Sleepy Hollow series by Taryn Kincaid specifically.  I’ve read the first one, but thankfully you don’t need to have done so to understand the context of Thunder.

    I do have some issues though.  While the characters were compelling, I wasn’t fully invested in their outcome, making the whole thing feel a little shallow emotionally.  The witch thing felt pretty irrelevant entirely, and I failed to notice any significance of the title.  The first one had a clear correlation, but this just didn’t have that which was a little disappointing.

    The love scenes are sexy, but I think what really makes this story is the sweetness between the two once they get over their hesitation and frustrations.  Despite Sean’s playboy nature, he wants to treat Veronica right.  Plus it may sound silly, but my favorite part was actually the end where Sean takes care of Veronica’s mystery sound.

    A nice balance of tender and hot, Thunder is a nice little quickie read before bed.  Don’t miss out on a fun little novella!
