Urban Fantasy Early Review: Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews

Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews (Hidden Legacy #1)

review copy courtesy of Avon

Synopsis from Goodreads
#1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews launches a brand new Hidden Legacy series, in which one woman must place her trust in a seductive, dangerous man who sets off an even more dangerous desire…

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.

 Pure awesomesauce with a cherry on top! That's all I'm saying, folks.

“One school of thought says that the best way to handle an issue like this is exposure therapy," Mad Rogan said. "For example, if you're terrified of snakes, repeated handling of them will cure it."
Aha. "I'm not handling your snake.” 

Short review:

GO AND BUY IT. *see first sentence*

Long review:

If you are suffering from withdrawal after Magic Breaks, this will fix you. Burn For Me is almost as awesome as Kate Daniels series, which means it's more awesome than Clean Sweep and leaves On The Edge series way behind. It keeps you high like Silver Shark, but it's entirely unique, yet familiar with Ilona and Gordon Andrews' own brand of one kick ass main heroine plus one manlicious alpha hero multiplied by non-stop action and crazily good world-building.

I know Avon created a cover that makes you think of paranormal romance, but don't be misled - this is pure urban fantasy!

Nevada is a small fish, a quiet private detective, whose life changes when the corporation which owns her business's debt forces her to take on a case bigger than her resources would allow and potentially deadly - bring an unhinged magic user back to his family. Pierce is a Prime (a highest magic user there is) and his element is fire, so Nevada will have to face a notorious criminal arsonist and try not to burn to a crisp.

While she starts luring Pierce towards tentative cooperation with her, she clashes with another Prime whose reputation as a homicidal maniac precedes him and at some point made him an urban legend, - Mad Rogan.

How can I describe Mad Rogan and Nevada's pairing? Delicious, sparkly, gorgeous, hilarious and sexy! These two, my dear readers, are so razor edge sharp, wily and funny, the comparison with another famous Andrews' power couple comes to mind straight away.

I loved it, and you couldn't drag me away from the book until the very end even if you tried. It's addictive, wonderful, strong urban fantasy which will make you laugh (mostly snicker) and cheer for its wonderful characters. Just wait until you meet Nevada's fabulous family. They are incorrigible!

So, what are you waiting for? GO AND BUY IT.

Короче говоря, мои  дорогие, читать НАДО. Особенно, если у вас ломка после последней Кейт Дэниэлс.

Гори для Меня почти также офигительна как Кейт Дэниэлс и ещё более офигительна, чем все остальные серии авторов. Может только Серебрянная Акула может сравниться с этой книгой.

Ожидайте характерный для Эндрюсов расклад - бой-баба с большим экцентричным семейством - Невада (там одна бабуля милейшая, которая чинит танки) плюс один психопат маньяк, восхитительный альфа-мужик с легендарной репутацией - Мад Роган, умноженные на нон-стоп экшн с шикарным построением уникального мира.

Несмотря на типичную для паранормальных романов обложку от издательства, это чистейшее городское фэнтези.

Невада владеет маленьким детективным агенством, и всё у неё хорошо, пока корпорация, что держит у себя долги её бизнеса не требует, чтобы она нашла знаменитого криминала-мага высшего разряда, Пирса, и вернула его семье. Невада понимает, что она просто козёл отпущения, и что шансы высоки, что она умрёт, пытаясь вернуть анархиста-мага домой, однако она начинает закидывать удочку и ловит того на крючок.

Но планы её сталкиваются с аналогичными планами ещё одного мага высшего разряда, легендарного Безумного Рогана. Ну тут, как говорится, нашла коса на камень, и эта парочка сразу же наводит на мыль о Кейт и Курране. Оба хитрющие, хладнокровные, своевольные, резкие на язык характеры, и искры между ними так и сыпятся. Я проржала большую часть книги с их диалогов, а о самом их партнёрстве читать было одним удовольствием.

В общем, читать обязательно. К гадалке ходить не надо, чтобы предсказать, что серия эта будет офигительно прекрасной!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
