Not only is Nik gorgeous, he protects her from a bully, lets a would-be boyfriend know she’s not available, and kisses like she’s never before been kissed. People are not always what they seem, however, and Cara soon finds herself caught up in a conspiracy that could cause Cara her life.

Don't let the slow build fool you. Once the action hits in this book, it hits hard and fast and keeps building to the end. Love romance? You'll love watching Cara and Nik dance around their feelings for each other. Will they find their happy-ever-after? No spoilers here :-) Enjoy intrigue? Stolen jewels, international thieves, and kitchen implement torture play a big part of this story. But, underlying all of the romance and intrigue and action, is the story of a girl learning how to deal with a tragic loss. Not only how to deal with it, but how to move forward and be the strong, confident girl she was before her life was turned upside down. Finding Thor is a read that will please across many genres.
After I read the description I knew I had to get my hands on this book. Cara is a character I liked from the very start. She's very dynamic, and I found myself rooting for her immediately. She's baffled by Nik and the feelings he makes her have. The two are drawn to each other, but that means trouble for Cara. Her connection to Nik puts her life in danger. Enter the a royal princess and a mystery involving stolen jewels. I loved this plot because it really has a little of everything. The action was steady, and I was dying to see how the mystery of the stolen jewels would play out. There are even a few twists along the way. One of my favorite things about Cara is that despite her feelings for Nik she asserts she won't be the girl who needs a guy in her life. She really stands on her own two feet, which I think is something teen girls need to understand and believe about themselves. A great blend of romance, mystery, and action, Finding Thor is a must read.
