ARC Book Review: The Seducer by Elin Peer

Does a curse only work if you believe it does? 

Chosen to be a priestess from childhood, Athena knows everything about aligning her energy with the universe and spreading hope, healing, and wisdom to people. But her inner balance is disturbed when Finn shows up on her doorstep.

The large, annoyingly flirtatious man kept her imprisoned in the past and now demands she lift the spell she cast on him. Rather than explain to him that the spell wasn’t real, Athena sees her chance of teaching him a lesson in karma and makes demands of her own. Finn will allow her full power over him for five full days or live with the curse forever.

The Seducer is the fourth installment in Elin Peer’s wildly popular series Men of the North. Like all her other books it offers humor, a fast pace, and an emotional roller-coaster that will leave you breathless.

First off.. doesn’t the cover model kind of remind you of Selena’s husband in the movie where Jennifer Lopez plays Selena?


It’s like he hit the gym a million times and grew a bunch of facial hair…

I like it.

The book itself was pretty good. I really do enjoy Elin Peer’s writing and it seems to improve each time I read the next book in the series. Some of the issues I had with the first couple novels aren’t present in these later ones and it definitely makes the books more enjoyable. Not that it lacked any enjoyment before.

I love where the story arc is going and I’m looking forward to seeing the two cultures intermingle even more.

The only thing that I wasn’t crazy about with this novel was Finn himself. I did find him to be quite immature. I mean, he’s supposed to be a doctor and I didn’t get that vibe from him at all. But I absolutely loved Athena. Looking past the fact that she’s named after one of my favorite Greek goddesses (thank Annabeth for that), she was just a very awesome, strong character.

Overall, I think this was an excellent addition to this series and I’m looking forward to reading the next book!
