Book Blurb: 

Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile case. Nevada isn’t sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.

Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run or surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.

Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.

| Book Review |

Burn for Me (or the book that made me kick myself in the ass for not picking up the Kate Daniels series sooner, as I like to call it,) was a fun ride. I think I enjoyed it even better the second time around. I would like to point out (just to avoid disappointment in advance,) that at no point does Mad Rogan gallivant around Houston sans shirt. He is, in fact, quite logical and clothed unless fury or injury is involved. And holy Hannah – I forgot how sexy Mad Rogan is. How could I forget how sexy he is? The tension in this book was off the charts, and while Mad and Nevada never quite fall between the sheets, the build up in this book is stellar and has me salivating for White Hot. I do love that with the two series I’ve read so far, there isn’t instant gratification for the reader as far as sex goes. And I still get a chuckle out of the fact that while Mad and Nevada spend quite a bit of time together in this book teamed up to catch the bad guys, she never stops referring to him, even in her head, as Mad Rogan. No matter how familiar they are with each other. Speaking of Nevada, she is a badass protagonist. She’s the breadwinner for her family, and she takes her role very seriously. I love how dedicated she is to her family and her job, and how honest she is with herself. I love everything about her, especially her fangirling over one of the local celebrities. This woman who gets shaken up over nothing gets giddy when she meets a female legend. Hilarious.

If you’ve been waiting to jump on the Ilona Andrews bandwagon, now is the time. Burn for Me was an excellent read, and with the next two releases of this finite series on the horizon, you’re sure to get closure soon! Just be prepared – you’ll want to consume their backlist.

  1. Ok, I think you’ve got me convinced. I just got this one (well, five copies of it) in my Avon Addicts package and I wasn’t sure it would be for me. You’re making me reconsider that. Great review!


  2. I’ve been working my way through their books and am getting set to start The Edge series next, but I can’t wait for these ones. I don’t think they’ve written a dud yet.
    Fun review, Angie!


  3. I just love everything Ilona Andrews does. I thought that I liked the book even more the second time through as well. The build up between this pair is intense.


  4. I have got to get to reading this series. Love them and even have these but…time. *flails*


  5. Oh, my gosh! I love this series sooooo much! I’m posting my review for White Hot on Friday so I’ll come check out yours after, but now I can’t wait for Wildfire. Ilona Andrews just can’t do any wrong IMO! So happy you’re loving this, too, Angie! Fab review! 🙂
