FLOVED!!! S.T. has a way with Norse mythology, and writing in a way that really pulls you in. You instantly love Mia - she's strong and independent. A very strong and great companion for Tyr out charismatic God of War. I loved the Elsker saga so much I felt like I was cheating on the old crew with the new, but really they are both amazing. I really am hoping that S.T. gives us a cross over novel (hint hint) Mia is neurotic, loves her life to have order, to be rational, to make sense; to have Perfekt Order! She is a strong likable character that I enjoyed getting to know. Tyr starts off as a hot jerk, you want to like him and really hope that he turns around cuz he comes off very hot and cold. But trust in S.T. and her magical story telling. I felt like I was experiencing what it means to be the Tyr; to be the God of War; and to have experienced tragic loss. Brynn and Henrik are amazing supporting characters and cannot wait for more to their stories. Brynn is the best friend that everyone wants - happy and upbeat; exactly what you need her to be. Henrik - he's great, ungodly smart, and great comedic relief in some situations. You cannot help but fall in love with this crew - if you love Norse mythology, swoon worthy Gods, and a kick butt strong fem-fatal, you will LOVE this book (and the series I'm sure) Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book in exchange for a honest review.

OH WOW!!! S.T. Bende hit it out of the park with this book! The Norse mythology pulled me in to the characters world. Mia believes that everything must be in order, doesnt like change and certainly doesnt like surprises. Her life is all planned out. I quickly fell in love with Mia. Tyr, OH MY, one hot God of War, stubborn and certainly doesnt have time for a 17 year old human girl. Well fate has a different idea..... The book from the start will transporting you into the characters world,they become your friends LOVED IT!!!!!!

I was given an ARC for an honest review of Perfekt Order. I always love reading S.t. Bende books. She does an amazing job capturing what I would call an old fashioned romance, perfectly. I love her spin on Norse mythology and her way of making you fall for and drool over these Gods she writes about. In Perfekt Order, we meet Mia Ahlstrom. Dont let her beauty and brains fool you into thinking shes all looks. She's got mad skills! She's good in the kitchen, with a gun and a fishing pole. Lets not get into how good of a skier she is. Mia arrives in California to attend college and right away the adventure begins. On a morning run through the woods, Mia is attacked by something, and someone she swears she saw comes to her rescue. At least thats what she thinks happened but when she wakes up there's no evidence of an attack and her roommate Brynn has found her passed out in the woods. Chalking it up to low blood sugar mixed with exercise, Mia pushes it aside but doesnt forget. At a party with her house mates, Mia meets Brynns gorgeous friends Tyr Fredriksen and Henrik Andersson. Mia and Tyr strike up a conversation getting to know each other. Mia seems to feel the sparks but Tyr leaves without asking her out. If she only knew, she wasnt the only one who felt those sparks but there is a reason Tyr didnt ask her out. Tyr comes with a lot of baggage because of his dangerous job, but when you're the Norse God of War, Im sure danger doesn't just exsist at work. The more Mia hangs out with Brynn, Henrik and Tyr, the more she realizes what actually happened in the woods and that there's more to everything than she knew. *Dies* I love a good ole hottie hunky man!! Gods bless S.t. for bringing us these awesome stories that whisk us away from everyday life. She is very good at spinning a tale that makes our hearts swell and melt.
