She was the kind of person who would see a pot overflowing on the stove and come and tell you about it, instead of picking it up and moving it off the burner. And then she would be proud of herself for acting quickly in a crisis.
“You’re wasting my time,” I said. “Just say everyone I know and love is dead. It’s more efficient.”
He laughed quietly. “You’re mouthy.”
“And you’re a psychopath.”
“You say it like it’s a bad thing. It’s practically a requirement for people in our position.”
“Yes, well, David Howling did it better.”
“Rogan won’t always be there to do your dirty work.”
“Rogan didn’t kill David. I did. He fought me for his life and lost. The next time we meet I’ll pull every dirty secret out of your mind and lay them out in the open. When I’m done, you’ll curl into a ball and weep, just like all the others. That’s how you threaten, Vincent.”
“Could you get me some coffee?”
“No,” Bug said.
“I’m a surveillance specialist, not a waiter,” Bug said, his diction 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.”
I leaned forward to look at his face. The dragon was out in all his terrifying glory. I grinned. “What are you thinking about?”
“You can’t kill Garen Shaffer.”
“Technically, I can. I choose not to. And I wasn’t thinking of killing him.”
“If you go over to his place and break his arms in five places, it would look bad. People will be afraid to do business with me.”
“I wasn’t thinking of breaking his arms either. I was thinking of hamstringing his corporation, ripping it apart, and selling it piece by piece while he watched.”
Mad Rogan, the Scourge of Mexico. A civilized and considerate enemy. “You can’t ruin every man who
“Yes, I can. Besides, I would only have to ruin the first couple and the rest will get the hint..."

ALL THE STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I loved this book! This series is MIND-BLOWING and FANTASTIC and now one of my favorites FOREVER. I can’t recommend it enough!
POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD
With Nevada’s powerful paternal grandmother, Victoria Tremaine, knowing about their existence, the only way to keep the Baylor family safe is to petition to become a House of their own, and with three potential Prime’s in their family it might just be possible and their only hope. But Victoria, who might just be evil, isn’t willing to make things so easy for them.
Then there’s Rogan’s ex-fiancé, Rynda Sherwood, who needs Nevada’s help in finding her missing husband. But the more Nevada and Rogan finds out about his kidnapping the more it seems to be part of a more sinister plot.
He was mine. My Connor.
I love how this author continues to build on the storyline and seeing Nevada grow in her powers was so great. Nevada is definitely my kind of heroine. I love how smart, tough, loyal and feisty she is. She might be a bit vulnerable when it comes to Rogan, but that was just perfect because he was the same with her.
“If someone threatens you, I’ll kill them. If you’re not there to stop me, I’ll torture them first.”
And Rogan…. *sigh* He’s so sexy. I love that he isn’t the perfect ‘hero’. He has darkness in him, violence that could destroy the world, but he’s accepted who he is, a man who would torture and kill those who threaten the safety of the people he loves. And that just makes me love him even more.
“You’re mine,” he said, his voice rough. “I’m not letting you go.”
“I’m glad we cleared that up.”
“Do you understand me, Nevada? I’m not walking away. I thought I could, but I can’t and I don’t want to.”
I brushed his cheek with my fingertips. “What makes you think I would let you go?”
Rogan and Nevada’s relationship really shined in this book. I love how much he loves her, how scared he was of losing her, thinking once she realises just how powerful she is, what kind of future she could have, she might just choose one without him. Luckily Nevada is smart and she knows that love is all that matters. I love how much she loves Rogan, how she fights for him, accepts him just like he is and how she keeps his darkness at bay. Their romance is so beautiful and passionate and I adored it!
The main focus of this book was Nevada and her family and the choices they were about to make. We finally find out what magic her sisters and her cousin Leon has and it was AWESOME!!! I also loved that Cornelius joined their family agency and I would really like my own Zeus too ;-) As always there were many humorous moments because of Nevada’s family, who I love and who were so kick-ass in this book, and it was excellent that the men and women who works for Rogan played such a big part in this book. I loved how they meddled in their relationship, worried that Rynda was causing problems for them. It was so cute :-D And Sergeant Teddy was so wonderful!!
Even though there were less explosions, gunfights and magic fights, the plot was still so captivating. The threat from Victoria and the kidnapping of Rynda’s husband added much suspense and I couldn’t read fast enough to find out what would happen. Rynda was definitely a piece of work, so weak and clingy and had me rolling my eyes so many times. Of course she tried to cause trouble for Nevada and Rogan and I just laughed at her stupidity thinking she could ever succeed. The last half of the book was very action-packed and the final fight so freaking awesome. I just love Nevada’s grandmother and her tank Romeo.
“You’re like spring, Nevada. My spring.”
I loved everything about this book and this series. IT’S SO AMAZING! And I can’t wait to re-read it again. With that ending I’m not sure if there will be more books to this series I hope there will be because I’m definitely not ready to say goodbye to this FANTASTIC world and its characters.
Ilona Andrews is one of the best authors out there. You can’t go wrong with their amazing world-building, fantastically written characters and plot, and wonderful romance. If you haven’t read them yet, you need to get out from under that rock you live and READ THEIR BOOKS. Highly recommended to EVERYONE.
