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.
What I liked: I love starting a new series with an author I know I can count on to get me completely involved in a story and the characters. I was not disappointed at all! A first book in a series has so many expectations from readers. I can't even imagine the pressure an author feels. The Andrews always seem to step up to the plate and hit it out of the park.
As expected, the writing is smooth, the pacing is even and the storyline builds, as does the tension with the two main characters. I liked Nevada. I'm not in love with her yet but I'm close. "Mad" Rogan....hmmm, He has no boundaries, and isn't afraid to break down other's shields. His only loyalty we can currently "see" is to his House. He's confident, overbearing and of course, yummy. Nevada has boundaries, loves her family and is currently coasting along.
I enjoyed seeing the world building the Andrews bring to the table. It's a bit complicated, believable and I got lost in the characters and the story. What more can a reader ask for. I was really a bit apprehensive about reading Burn For Me because I love the Kate Daniels series so much. I didn't want the same characters in a different setting. No worries. While Kate and Nevada might have a few things in common, they are nothing alike in most aspects. Nevada's whole home situation is heartwarming and funny.
Speaking of funny...the humor you love from this writing duo is not absent at all. I found myself chuckling so many times, my family thought I was nuts. Humor in a book will get me every time, at least it will if it fits the story. The humor in Burn For Me is fitting and added to my enjoyment.
What I didn't like: Sorry, nothing from me in this area. Was it my all time favorite book, well no but it's a complete book and the ending will lead right into the next.
Yep, another series I will be reading and trying to fit into my "reading time". Believe me, this isn't author "awe" helping write this review. If I have reservations about a book or recommending it, you will hear it loud and clear.
