I dont have a lot to say about this, but I will say that I loved Alrik and Cal. Alrik was very sweet and demanding, Cal was very funny and candid. And the story was original and interesting. But dont judge this book by its cover. The hot torso may lead you to believe that it is a hot and sexy read when it fact it is not. There is zero sex in this book. There is a lot of angst and romance, but no sex. Although there is some sexual dialogue, so I would recommend this to all but the youngest and mo ...more

Pretty cute and at times silly. 3.5

This was my first Kristen Painter novel, and let me tell you, it won't be my last :)

The premise caught my eye immediately -- who hasn't wished for a genie of sorts to grant three magical changes in our lives? Add to that the fact that the "genie" isn't a genie at all, but is, in fact, a hunka hunka burning Viking and well, I'm fangirling all over that!

One thing that stood out to me the most with this book was the humor. There were definitely serious themes, and possibly even a hint of a parable
3 stars.
It was a really quick and enjoyable read for me. This was one of those books that you read just to unwind. I loved our viking he was really hot and very protective even when he thought that he just was attracted to our heroine. The chemistry between them was sizzling and I couldn't get enough of them both.
What bothered me a bit is that both of them are guarded from past relationships and broken hearts and it should've been harder for the to let go their doubts and start something. But I

Loved this book! It starts out with a vicious murder making vengeance a must for Alrik. I was completed enthralled with just the first chapter. I loved the main heroine as well, which usually doesn't happen. Calleigh's name, family, demeanor, humor, everything was wonderful. The betrayals were a great addition to the paranormal romance. I was still laughing even 3/4 of the way through, and literally I couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting. I hadn't read anything by Kristen Painter befor ...more

I enjoyed this book, especially the hero, Alrik. He had been betrayed and yet he was open and honest and I found that I liked everything about him. Calleigh was funny and very considerate but in some parts of the book, she irritated by by the decision she made or how she treated Alrick. Overall, it was a very enjoyable book that I would recommend to any romance reader!

This was fun and original. There are a lot of Viking books out there, but a Viking in contemporary times? I fell in love with Alrik and truly could identify with the protagonist and the decisions she had to face.

I totally had a Cinnabon craving after reading this book! This was a fun read, and I unexpectedly enjoyed it! I won the ARC, so I might not have normally picked it up cause I prefer historical romance. But this was a really good story!

This is one of the very few romance novels I've read more than once. The main female is a bit weak for my taste but I love the concept of the Phoenix working for Freya. I sincerely hope there is another Phoenix character in a future book.

All Fired Up was okay, bits of it were funny and other very sweet but Calliegh was really annoying, her three changes were just such obviously terrible decisions. I really couldn't get over the annoyance I felt at her.

A quick and enoyable read. I was hoping for more of this series but I can't find that any more were published.

I gave this 5 stars because it was so entertaining and fun to read. I couldn't put it down!! If I can't have Alrick I want a Viking Phoenix of my very own.
