Wildfire (Hidden Legacy, #3)

1

I was a little hesitant going into this book. I wasn’t sure if this was one of those series that is best enjoyed with breaks in-between or if there was a possibility of burning out on this series.. But let me reassure you, this series has proven to be absolutely captivating. Wildfire is a page turner that you don’t want to put down. I really hope the fourth book doesn’t take long to publish!

Synopsis:
Just when Nevada Baylor has finally come to accept the depths of her magical powers, she also realizes she’s fallen in love. Connor “Mad” Rogan is in many ways her equal when it comes to magic, but she’s completely out of her elements when it comes to her feelings for him. To make matters more complicated, an old flame comes back into Rogan’s life…

Rogan knows there’s nothing between him and his ex-fiance, Rynda Sherwood. But as Nevada begins to learn more about her past, her power, and her potential future, he knows she will be faced with choices she never dreamed of and the promise of a life spent without him.

As Nevada and Rogan race to discover the whereabouts of Rynda’s kidnapped husband and are forced to confront Nevada’s grandmother, who may or may not have evil motives, these two people must decide if they can trust in each other or allow everything to go up in smoke.

Review:
This book starts on a heavy note – Nevada has to inform her family that not only is her grandma trying to either kill her or use her, her family’s only hope is to expose themselves and form their own House. But before Nevada can even contemplate how to begin to have that conversation, Rynda Charles walks back into Nevada’s life. Not only is she Rogan’s ex-fiancée, she is also the daughter of Olivia Charles. In case you don’t remember from book two, Olivia Charles is the woman who killed Cornelius’s wife and later ended up being eaten alive by a swarm of rats. 

Rynda is a prime empath and keeping your emotions from her is impossible. She is also a dangerous woman, especially to Nevada. Not only is she beautiful and rich, but she plays a convincible damsel in distress, looking for someone to save her. And it doesn’t take her long to begin looking in Rogan’s direction. 

The dynamic between Rogan, Nevada, and Rynda is the perfect storm of jealousy and fear. On the one hand, there’s the uncertainty that is in every new relationship. That voice in the back of your mind always doubting the others feelings or if this relationship will last. Then throw in an attractive ex who is constantly throwing herself at your man. Perfect storm. I love how Nevada is always trying to take the high rode, trying not to read into things and truly trying to have faith that her and Rogan will make it through this hump. Andrews nailed this dynamic perfectly and I absolutely love it. 

One of my favorite passage:

She (Rynda) fell silent, then glanced at Bug. “Could you get me some coffee?”
“No” Bug said.
She blinked
“I’m a surveillance specialist, not a waiter,” Bugsaid, his dictation perfect, his voice flat. “The coffee is on the kitchen counter over there. Help yourself.”
She opened her mouth and closed it.
“Nevada?” Bug said.
Don’t do it, don’t do it…
“Would you like some coffee?”
“No thanks.” Ass
“Because I’ll totally get it for you.” 

Honestly the entire scene is amazing. This scene is just one example of Nevada taking the high road.

 I’ve read a few books by Andrews and all the heroines within her books have a similar yet unique voice. They are all strong, feisty, determined individuals. But they aren’t perfect, they make mistakes. They are all human and that’s the key. Andrews characters are easily relatable. You can see parts of yourself, your insecurities, in each of her books. Looking at Nevada’s character, she is everything listed above but she’s vulnerable, especially when it comes to Rogan. She tries hiding it but there’s no denying that it’s there. And I think this is part of what makes Andrews books so addicting. That and she’s a very gifted writer.

Here’s another quote I love:
“Come to dinner with me tonight and I’ll consider it.” Yes! “No, I don’t negotiate with terrorists.” “If you don’t go to dinner with me, I’ll have to do something drastic like stand by your window with a boom box blasting some idiotically sappy song.”

One of the things Ilona Andrews does best is character development. She doesn’t just create a surface character. No, she creates a character with such depth that there is no doubt you will either love or hate them with everything you’ve got. One of my favorite side characters is Grandma Frida. She is so feisty and protective of her family. I can’t help but think that everyone needs at least one person like Grandma Friday in their lives. 

Victoria, Nevada’s paternal grandmother, is savage and cruel. She can easily break anyone’s mind and leave them in pieces. She is feared and known as a monster. But things aren’t as cut and dry with Victoria. And honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about her. Yes, she is scary but I think she did what she thought she had to do. Was it right, no. But I think there is another side of her that we will see in the next book. Or at least I hope so.. 

One of the complicated issues that came up in this book is the sacrifice one makes when choosing love over the possibility of genetic incapability. When marring for love, you run the high risk that your genetics will create a child with sub-par to no abilities. Having a child with sub-par magical ability is devastating to any House. But having a child who doesn’t manifest any magical ability can destroy any house’s future. Rogan continues to bring this concern up with Nevada, insisting she will care if their children are less than Primes. This is just one of the many ways Rogan continues to try and protect Nevada. It takes a strong man to say and the very thing that will (in his mind) inevitably make the person he loves walk away from him.  

“He (Rogan) viewed this as the beginning of our end, but he came anyway.”

I just love Rogan’s character! The end of the book is, as expected, action packed and marvelous! And I’m pretty sure I know who Caesar is. Ilona Andrews didn’t spell it out for you but if you’re paying attention, I think it’s easy to connect the dots. Don’t worry, I’m not going to ruin anything by giving away spoilers.  

Overall, I really enjoyed the book. I can’t wait for the next one to come out!

Burn for Me (Hidden Legacy, #1)

1

First off, Ilona Andrews is a very gifted writer and once again she has written a magnificent book! If this is the first you have heard of this author, then you have a lot of catching up to do.  This is actually the second time reading this book. After the first time reading this book, I looked down at my notes and realized I didn’t have any.

Synopsis:
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.


Review:
Rogan, aka Mad Rogan, is exceptionally powerful. His power is dangerous because in one moment he can make if feel as though he’s slowly caressing your skin, bringing you seconds away from one of the best orgasms you have ever felt. And then the next moment you are dead; all the while Rogan hasn’t moved a muscle. Talk about bad boy attraction. 

As Andrews was describing Connor, I was melting over every detail. The combination of sexy and danger is mouthwatering delicious! I loved Connors character! And his entrance in the book, not talking about the prologue, was fantastic. 

Nevada is a private investigator who has been working for the family business since she was a teenager. She also has the unique power to tell when someone is lying but shh, it’s a secret. I loved Nevada’s character!! She is strong, devoted to her family, and so completely lost. She has no idea how amazing she is or just how absent her life has been. One of the things I loved about Navada was even though she would be scared out of her mind, her hands/voice would be trembling, she would still stand strong. Definitely something to admire.  

Augustine is a prime (highest ranking) illusionist and owns the mortgage to Nevada’s family business. For the first time in five years he has an assignment for Nevada, apprehend Adam Pierce. Who is he? Adam Pierce is another bad boy type full of brooding sexuality. He is also a prime pyrokinetic, which makes him just as dangerous as Connor. Adam in many ways resembles both a sociopath and a spoiled brat who never matured past his moody teen years. Either way, he is the hot crazy type that you might admire from afar but get close and it’ll be the last thing you do.  

Nevada and Connors relationship is complicated. In the beginning, Nevada struggles between fighting her attraction and butting heads with Connor. That is until Adam makes a move that is unforgivable in Nevada’s eyes and she is pushed into partnering with Connor. Although Connor is the sexiest thing Nevada has ever seen, she realizes he is also the most dangerous and scariest person she knows. Throughout the book, she is fighting her attraction with every realization of what Conner is capable of.

I love the scene of Nevada and Connor stuck under the building. The twist and turns in this book keep these two in a perpetual state of a love-hate relationship. And when Connor has breakfast with Nevada and her family, I was chuckling and couldn’t get enough. It was the perfect combination of normal and bizarre. And I can’t even begin to describe the carnation scene. Let’s leave it as Conner is both complex and surprising. 

This is one of those books you don’t want to put down. Although the world building wasn’t as detailed as you normally get from Ilona Andrews, the plot is beyond captivating. This book has the right amount of action, flirtatious banter, and a realistic slightly flawed heroine. Perfect combination!

I have really enjoyed this series! For me, it was one of those hidden gems. And I’ll be honest, my review of this book is not an in-depth one.  I started reading the book and next thing I knew, I was at the end and all I wrote were 3 sentences. That’s how captivating this book is!!

Synopsis:
In a pursuit that has spanned continents, Iolanthe, Titus, and their friends have always managed to remain one step ahead of the forces of Atlantis. But now the Bane, the monstrous tyrant who bestrides the entire mage world, has issued his ultimatum: Titus must hand over Iolanthe, or watch as his entire realm is destroyed in a deadly rampage. Running out of time and options, Iolanthe and Titus must act decisively to deliver a final blow to the Bane, ending his reign of terror for good.

However, getting to the Bane means accomplishing the impossible—finding a way to infiltrate his crypt in the deepest recesses of the most ferociously guarded fortress in Atlantis. And everything is only made more difficult when new prophecies come to light, foretelling a doomed effort…

Iolanthe and Titus will put their love and their lives on the line. But will it be enough?

Review:
This book doesn’t miss a beat and picks up exactly where the second one left off. And if you struggle remembering all the details from the previous book, no worries because the author does a fantastic job of reminding you. As normal, the writing style took me a little bit to get used to. But once I did, the book flowed effortlessly.

The heartache Titus and Iolanthe go through is hard to imagine. I wonder how painful it would be to know your loved one will die but not know how to stop it from happening. I’m impressed Thomas followed through and killed some of our most loved characters. Not every author is strong enough to do this. Although when I was reading the book, I was saddened by the loss, I do respect the author for making such a difficult decision. 

 The plot was fantastic, full of romance, black magic, and best yet it was unpredictable. You are going through the book believing one thing to only find out it was something completely different. 

It’s difficult to remember Titus is so young. His character comes off as such a romantic and someone who has experienced a lot in life. As much as his character has grown, Iolanthe as grown that much more. Starting this series as a scared girl, she has transformed into this strong, independent woman.

The ending wasn’t my favorite but overall I found it satisfying. I would recommend this series to anyone who loves Young Adult/Fantasy books.

Wild Hunger (Heirs of Chicagoland, #1)

As of today, there are 102 days before this book is released. And I know, it’s not fair but I promise the wait is well worth it! You are going to love this series!

1.2

I was surprised, albeit happily surprised, with how often Ethan and Merits characters showed up in this book. It was a little weird having Ethan and Merit be side characters, being able to hear their words without their thoughts. I almost felt left out, like I was missing something. But I guess that’s how it is with all spinoffs. It’s a good thing I loved Elisa’s character! Otherwise, I think it would be difficult to stick with the series.

Synopsis:
As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she’s a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he’s prince of the Pack and its future king.

When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.


Review:
First off, do not go into this book expecting a miniature Merit. Although Elisa has aspects of her parents, she is no Merit. She is more and so different. And as a side note, I love the parents Ethan and Merit turned out to be.

“My smart and kind and beautiful girl. He (Ethan) liked to say that, had been saying that for years, and had always put ‘beautiful’ last. Whether it was true or not, he’d tell me it was the least important of the three. “You are smart,” he’d say. “You should be kind. And if you are, you’ll always be beautiful.” 

I love this quote because it says so much about their character and values. And again, it shows what kind of parents Ethan and Merit are. I do wish Elisa would have felt like she could have told them her secret. I can’t imagine the weight of having to carry that around with you, not being able to talk to anyone about it.

The prologue was really fun to read. Chloe Neill did a great job at capturing the innocents of a child and the love/hate relationship between two young kids. If you haven’t read Chicagoland Vampire series, then I don’t think you would fully be able to picture the scene described here. Neill doesn’t go into too much description with the characters. For example, you don’t really get the sense of just how big/dominating Gabriel and Ethan presence would be, especially to two young kids. I do love how Elisa refers to Connor as ‘Connor Stupid Keene’.

Elisa’s character is complex. She is 23 and although she is a vampire, she continues to age. Elisa is heroic but at times can become reckless. And although she thinks she has discovered herself in Paris, she still has no idea who she is in Chicago. But no matter where she is, she is unbelievably brave.  Knowing she has to do something, even if it means hurting the ones she loves most because it’s to save the innocent, doesn’t hurt any less. I love the innocence of Elisa’s character. Although She is able to step up to a fight, she is still affected by the loss of death.

The phrase ‘I’m an immortal’ has come from Elisa throughout the entire book. I’m not sure why it sticks out to me, but it does. I can’t help but wonder how and if this might come into play later.

Connor is just as gorgeous as he is cocky. The naked scene was far too short and such a tease. God I loved it!! I love the dominant side of him and I like how he’s honest with Elisa. Even when it’s hard, he tells her not what she wants but what she needs to hear. I like Connor’s take on Elisa’s ‘monster’. I don’t think I would have looked at it that way, but it makes sense.

Connor and Elisa have a very complicated relationship. On the one hand there’s old childhood resentment, then there is their life’s dream – for Elisa it’s being anonymous, earning her way. For Connor it’s being leader of the pack. – and finally, it’s the connection between them, discovering who they have grown to be. But even as the sparks fly between them, the rules are clear and choices will eventually have to be made.

The banter between Connor and Elisa is fantastic but there is definitely a love/hate, are we friends or more, kind of thing going on here.  Some of the scenes between Connor and Elisa are not only intense but they are seductive! Who would have thought having someone grab your hand to prevent you from turning could be so sensual?!?! Chloe Neill does such an amazing job with building sexual tension between the two characters!! She is such a gifted writer and Wild Hunger is no exception.

The side characters are fun to read. I love LuLu’s hidden hobby of running. Finally, a girl that speaks my heart! I love the little details Chloe Neill adds into her books. They make her characters, no matter how minor, seem more real and relatable. Even the side characters are written in such a  personal way, it’s easy to connect with them.

The plot is fun, exciting, and similar to Chicagoland Vampires series yet much more. Elisa has been away from Chicago, developing control, and is returning to support the houses in hosting peace talks amongst the other supernaturals in the world. And as you can imagine, those talks don’t exactly go as expected. One of the things I found interesting is how Cadogan house struck a deal with the mayor to not get involved in supernatural crimes. And part of me gets it – when supernaturals get involved, the city tends to get destroyed. But another part of me recognizes the injustice that is put upon a single race. I can’t help but make a comparison with today’s world and how we look, respond, and treat those of different races.  I’m not sure if that was Neill’s intention or not and it wasn’t like it was an overwhelming theme. Just something I noticed.

Okay, I promise I won’t say more about the plot and characters, don’t want to give too much away 🙂

The end of the book is fantastic! I’m surprised with how much Connor and Elisa’s relationship changes. Connor is going to have his hands full with her! And that darn prophecy! Ah, I love it. This is a book you will want to read. I’ve had it on pre-order from the very beginning and even though I was given an advanced copy, I can’t wait for the book to come. This will be a book I will read again and a new series I am looking forward to starting.


I would love to hear your thoughts about the review and if you are planning on reading this book. Until next time, Happy Reading 🙂

Blade Bound (Chicagoland Vampires, #13)

For the most part, I’m not going to give a normal review of this book. I love this series and there are plenty of people out there writing reviews and giving away all the exciting details. I’m not going to do that. Besides, if you’ve come this far in the series then you already know how great and bittersweet this book is going to be.

Other Books in this Series I have Reviewed:
Midnight Marked (Chicagoland Vampires, #12)
Phantom Kiss (Chicagoland Vampires, 12.5)

Synopsis:
Since the night of her brutal attack and unwilling transformation to vampire, Merit’s stood as Sentinel and protector of Chicago’s Cadogan House. She’s saved the Windy City from the forces of darkness time and again with her liege and lover, Ethan Sullivan, by her side.

When the House is infiltrated and Merit is attacked by a vampire seemingly under the sway of dark magic, Merit and Ethan realize the danger is closer than they could have ever imagined. As a malign sorcery spreads throughout the city, Merit must go to war against supernatural powers beyond her comprehension. It’s her last chance to save everything—and everyone—she loves.

Review:
The book opens up to the day before Merit and Ethan get married. But as this magical day unfolds, unease fills the air as Gabriel prophesy unfolds. In case you are wondering, this is the prophesy of Ethan and Merit having a child. The author has been teasing us about this prophesy almost since the beginning of the series and it’s finally here!! 

I will admit, I have been waiting for a long time to hear more about this prophecy. And now that it’s finally come and gone, I’m left with a little disappointment but mostly content. There were parts of this book that I though were a little over the top but overall I am really pleased with how Chloe Neil ended the series. 

Ethan and Merit really came into themselves in this book. Throughout all her adventures, Merit has struggled with who she is. And Ethan has been a big part of that struggle, until now. I absolutely love the chemistry and the dynamic between Ethan and Merit. This series is one of my all time favorites!

This book gives the reader everything you want- closure, love, and amazing action. Acceptance and overcoming fear is a huge theme of this book. And I can’t wait for the spinoff. If you haven’t read the first book in this series, I honestly don’t know what you’re waiting for!

Synopsis:
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best- but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option—even if the task is impossible.

Because this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.

The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other—and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt does not destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just might. For when archangels play, mortals break.

Review:
If you are like me and you base whether or not you read a book based on the cover, well I’m telling you now this book is the exception. The cover of this book just doesn’t do it any justice. This book is about power, strength, determination, and romance. I don’t know about you but I didn’t get any of that by looking at the cover of the book.

Anyway, this book starts out fast, so be ready! The author takes an interesting twist on angels and vampires. Archangels are actually the creators of vampires and our main character, Elena, is tasked to tracking down the ones that run away. You see being turned into a vampire comes at a cost. That cost is high and not everyone wants to pay the price. Those who don’t, run. Elena is one of the best hunters out there. But even her abilities are put to the test when archangel Raphael hires her to locate someone. Unfortunately, drawing Raphael’s attention and curiosity is the last thing she wants.

Elena’s character is awesome. She is tough, resilient, and doesn’t let anyone push her around. I think the thing that I like the most is how her character isn’t this far fetched hero. She is human with human flaws. She doesn’t have all the answers and she doesn’t always make the right choses. But she tries her best and she’s a good friend.   

To fully understand Raphael, I feel like I need to add context of what Angles represent. Nalini Singh took this idea of angels and added some dark and sinister elements. Angles in this world are out of touch with humanity, yet they are at the top of the hierarchy. They are carnal, sexual beings who are worshiped and adored but also feared. They have complete power over their realm. But power always comes at a cost. And Raphael sees just how big of a cost this is. Raphael is one of the most powerful among his kind. He is utterly ruthless and at times has no compassion for others. Raphael knows just how powerful he is and he isn’t afraid to use that power to get what he wants. He doesn’t follow human law, he follows a set of laws created by himself and the other Cadre, a group of ten archangels who rule over the world. Raphael is the kind of character that is both disturbing and sexy. He has this masculine appeal that draws you in and it is easy to forget exactly how dangerous he is.  Several times throughout the book he thought about killing Elena because her life, mortal life, has no value to him. Can you see why Elena doesn’t want to draw his attention?

But she does and her journey is not easy. Raphael is not easy to deal with but somehow she slips past his armor and what Raphael wants with Elena isn’t just a business relationship. While Elena turns him down at every advance, he becomes more determined to have her. The cat and mouse game Raphael and Elena play is fantastic! I am always a sucker for this kind of thing and this book is no exception.

The last 2/3rd of the book I was so entranced with the plot, I didn’t stop and take notes like I usually do. I was surprised with how vivid the murders were in this book. I felt like I could easily picture what was unfolding in the book. I found it easy to get invested in this story. I wanted to know more about Raphael and Elena’s relationship. If you love paranormal romance, strong characters with unlimited flirtations banter, you will enjoy this book. 

The Baller: A Down and Dirty Football Novel

This was a fantastic book, full of witty remarks and sexy dialogue banter. The chemistry between Brody and Delilah is addicting and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. This is one of those books you don’t want to put down.

Synopsis:
The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room. It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster. The famed quarterback decided to bare all. And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets. No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera. The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me. When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me. But I don’t date players.  And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football. I’d date an athlete.  It’s the other kind of player I don’t date. You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.

Brody Easton was the ultimate player. Every woman wanted to be the one to change him. But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for. Turned out, I was that girl. Simple right? Let’s face it. It never is. There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after… And this one is ours.

Review:
Delilah has worked hard to get where she is. A sports journalist in a male dominated profession, to say she puts up with a lot is an understatement. A sexist jerk for a boss and a sports legend for a Dad, talking to cocky football players should be a breeze. But it is anything but when interviewing Brody.

Brody is an arrogant football player. He knows how exactly how good looking he is and isn’t afraid to use his ‘assets’ to his advantage. I thought with his unruly behavior and comments, I would start this book hating Brody’s character. But in fact, I’m already rooting for him after just reading two chapters. There is something about his confidence that is extremely entertaining and sexy to read. 

I LOVED the interactions between Brody and Delilah!! The verbal banter was exciting, full of innuendo and flirtation. At first I thought Brody and Delilah had similar backstories. And Although Delilah’s past is trying to stay behind her, I quickly realized Brody’s never quite ended. And the heartache of Brody’s past is so sad. Reading about Willow from his perspective, the reader gets the perfect image of young love. But the author takes it further by wrapping hope and second chances around it. And then to read what happens next, let’s say it really touched my heart. 

I wish I could give you more detail but I don’t want to give too much away. My recommendation is to read the book. The plot is funny, sexy, and a fun read. The author has a way with words and it doesn’t take much before you are sucked in. I’ve read a couple books by this author and she is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Check out the book, you are sure to laugh, smile, and read a sexy story that is difficult to put down.
