I finally finished my reread. It was taking too long! I'm glad I finally just gave in just read this straight through the past couple of days. I alternated between the Kindle version and my paperback, which is a little more beat up than it was when I started. Purses are not the best habitat for books, but what can a bookworm do?

My thoughts this time around:

*Reno, you are such a brat, and how I love you. You sexy thang! Why did it take you so long to admit you were crazy about Jilly. You were a

Anne Stuart delivers another winner with Fire and Ice, the fifth installment in Ice series!

This was such an engaging read, a great mix of suspense, action, and romance. I found myself unable to stop turning page after page in anticipation of what would happen next. This is Anne Stuart’s book, of course, I expected plenty of nail-biting and heart-pounding moments, and I can tell you what I got was totally off the charts! I could barely catch my breath with excitement throughout the entire r

This is the 5th book in the Ice Series by Anne Stuart, one of my favorite romance/suspense authors and it’s all about Reno, Takashi O’Brien’s younger Japanese punk cousin, first introduced in Ice Blue. I fell in love with his character right then and even more so in Ice Storm and hoped that we would have his own story one day. And yes,

He’s the total opposite to the other heroes in this series – he’s young, video-games crazy, tattooed, with waist-length bright red hair, teardrops tattooed on his
5 stars – Romantic Suspense

I’ve read/reviewed the previous four books in the ‘Ice’ series, and just like those, “Fire and Ice” totally delivers on all counts for hot romantic suspense and is a gripping, action-packed, thrill-ride. Only this time around instead of fighting global terrorists bent on some master end-of-the-world plan, reluctant ‘Ice’ hero and total bad boy Reno battles Russian mercenaries and Japanese yakuza in order to keep young and impetuous heroine Jilly alive.

It’s still got St

Definitely, NOT a light, feel-good romance with wonderful characters and those "ahhh" moments. No way. It was, however, a good suspense with a touch of romance--at the very, very end.

As it typical with this series, the hero (Reno) was very mean to the heroine (Jilly). So, don't start reading this if are looking for a nice romance. There is a lot of action, killing, running, hiding and a lot of it takes place in Japan and focuses on the Yakuzza Crime Family, though the author admits--in her Ackno
5++++ stars

To steal a phrase from Reno:

Holy motherfucker!

That was good!

Meet Reno:


He's the Committee's newest recruit. While he's not as encased in Ice as his predecessors there's no doubt he's one ruthless badass mo-fo and while he's waiting around for his first official assignment and learning how to "blend-in" (or rather not learning - he's pretty attached to his flame red hair after all!) he's steadily working his way through the entire female population of London. He is NOT thinking about Ji

This book was excellent! Well worth the wait--as grueling as it was at times! It is such a fast read that you suddenly realize you’re more than half way through the book and the pages just keep flying by. It’s action packed with tons of sexual tension from the get-go right up to the end. There are lots of tear jerker emotional parts and the steamy scenes that come on quite suddenly have just the right amount of satisfying sizzle.

Jillian is a great heroine who can hold her own but she still shows

Jilly and Reno finally got their story! After the heated looks and withheld longing during Taka's book, I was really looking forward to this one.

Reno, Reno...what can I say? He's always been the bad boy. Well, now he's the BAD A$$ boy, and I fell in instant lust. Long, red tipped hair, leather and a motorcycle (a Harley, not one of those puny crotch rockets), and last but not least, his bad-itude. He knows how awesome he is. He's not boastful, but he IS arrogant. He's also Japanese, which is dif

This wonderful bit of nonsense features beloved characters from book 3, Ice Blue -- my favorite in the series, so far, starring Taka and Summer. The heroine of this book is Summer's sister, Jillian (Jilly), and the hero is Taka's kick-ass cousin Reno, newest operative for the Committee, and another ice-cold anti-hero, but not quite as gamma as Peter Bastien, from Book 1. Jilly is 20 and Reno about 28, I think (discrepancy with book 3), so they both seem less mature than the other couples in the ...more
