My Thoughts:

I read it on a stormy night. It was hullava big mistake!! Unfortunately it didn't come with a sexy Sean and a jacuzzi. Damn! Maybe I should contact Madam Eve, too. V, you lucky witch!!

I really liked this book and it grabbed me from the very beginning. Thunder felt like a sequel to Lightning merely because Sean is Campbell's brother, who is the protagonist in Lightning, and Sean mentiones Lily and Campbell a few times, and Camp even makes an "appearance" in this one. Only a few lines and they're on the phone, but still it was an entertaining dialogue. Little fun, little serious.

I will not talk about the story, because anything I'd say would be spoiler and could ruin your reading experiences with this book. I can tell you that I liked the twist, how Veronica and Sean ended up together (they would have end up together, eventually). The paranormal element is that Veronica is a witch, and even though only once she tooks advantage of it, she's being a witch does affect the story. I guess we could call it the complication of the story, because in some way, that's what leads her into the man's arms.

The Man: Sean Jones. I loved the parts from his point of view. He is definitely my type. First, he is cold, distant, most of the times confident about himself but not cocky, okay, just a little, but that's somehow entertaining, because he has a GREAT sense of humor along with his cockyness. But when/if he lets you in you can see how caring he is. And he sure as hell knows how to show the girl a good time ;)

Now.. on to the best part. The scenes y'all can't wait to read. No no, don't deny it!
There are two types of those hot scenes in this book. Fantasy and Reality just like in your life, right. The first one is at the beginning of the book, where Sean's imagination takes over. He has a pretty good and detailed one, I must say. Of cource his are hotter than Vero's, just a little bit. The actual or "reality" sex scenes are at the very end of the book, but worry not, the story will keep you awake until you get there. And it'll definitely worth the wait.

I loved the ending. Although it was a bit like if someone would have said "CUT" in the middle of a movie, it was a perfect ending. Weird, I know, but it was. I think it was really funny and touchy at once. I guess I love Sean's "romantic" speaches.

There was one little thing that kept a bit annoying me. The one thing, that I said a hundred times that I love about 1NS stories. The title being present in the story. That's always creative. It is this time too and has meaning, but I had to read "Thunder" too many (5) times. Yes, it felt a little bit pushy for me.

I give this "only" four stars, because of my problem with the word repeating I mentioned above, and because while it was a good book and entertaining enough, it didn't completely sucked me in. You know, I didn't said "I WANT MORE" at the end. It was great while it lasted, but that's the end and it feels right. Which is not a complete bad thing.

Oh, one more thing. As being a total cover-whore. I LOVE the cover! I love when a cover represents the story and this one does. Great colors too. Although I don't really like the font with the "1NS" is written, because while it's a nice font, it completely stands out of the setting. I know that's the official "mark" of the series, but still...
