The first time I read BURN FOR ME, I had concerns about literally Mad Rogan. I mean, yeah, he was effing hot, but when Nevada had to explain to him, over and over again, why he shouldn't (b/c yes, brat, we all know you can) kill people just b/c they annoy you . . . I repeat, I was concerned.
In WHITE HOT those concerns were answered, and HOO BOY, if I'd thought he was hot before . . . *chants* Tactile, tactile, tactile . . .
Nevada Baylor has a rare gift in a world that pr ...more
4.75 Come Into My Lair Stars
I keep thinking that I'm going to write you guys a better review of this. But no matter what I say it will not be as awesome as the words in the book and the fantastic blend of humor, sexual tension and action.
This was one of my favorite descriptions in the book.
he had thunder on his brow and lightning in his eye. I never understood what that phrase meant until Rogan’s face demonstrated it for me.
Yes I know it is just release day but it is al ...more
Let's talk expectations. .. As all of us devoted readers know expectations can be the worst kind of plague. They make you excited and often a little bit manic and most of the time they lead to you wanting very specific things. Obviously the authors not being a mind readers can't deliver exactly what your overzealous imagination has come up with for their characters. And even if they could read minds, yours is probably not the only ove ...more
Review now posted 4/6/17
Was this worth the wait? Hell fucking YEAH!
Did I love Nevada and Rogan? Hell fucking YEAH!
Did I love the plot? Hell fucking YEAH!
You see where this is going right?!
This book made me wanna roar!!
(See what I did there? Bit of Curran! (wink,wink)
The covers might be atrocious (and I really blame Avon for it) but don't let that stop you from picking up another winning series by these fantastic authors. They might not be everyone's cup of tea but they sure ...more
Better than the first. I'm here for the witty banter. Not so much for Rogan and his alpha douchiness. I'm also super over the hating on women not related to this female lead.
This is the type of series that draws you in from the get-go, grips you the whole way, then spits you out all chewed up, wanting to claw your hair out while you wait for the next installment.
If you look at the GR page for White Hot, it's a slew of five-star reviews from obsessed readers who have considered selling their souls to Ilona Andrews in exchange for book 3.
So what makes Hidden Legacy so addictive? I'll give my 3 biggest reasons real quick.
1. The world, my god, ...more
I don't know.
All I do know was it took me a couple of weeks to finish it.
But don't get me wrong, it's not bad!
I like the characters well enough, I like the plot, and I like the world they live in, so I'm not sure what the problem was.
Other than that cover...
Anyway, I'm glad I read it and I'm looking forward to the conclusion of this trilogy in the next book.
Honestly, I expected this to be good, but not *this good.* Burn for Me was great, but this takes things to a whole other level. I'm putting it up there with the best of the Kate Daniels books (#3, #6, and #9 for me personally).
This picks up a few months after the first one ended. Rogan has disappeared from Nevada's life and she thinks he has moved on. Silly woman. Of course, their paths cross again when they get mixed up in the s ...more
Note: this review contains some spoilers for the first book in this series, Burn for Me.
In White Hot (2017), the second book in Ilona Andrews’ HIDDEN LEGACY urban fantasy series, we return to a magical version of Houston, Texas, where some people (typically the rich and powerful) have inheritable magical powers. Nevada Baylor is from a not-particularly wealthy family that runs a private investigation firm, ...more
When I met the writing duo at RT this year and got a SIGNED PAPERBACK (meep!!), I just about died. I was saving the book for a special time because I LOVED Burn for Me with a passion and I knew White Hot would be a winner. So when I sort of hit a reading slump this week, I picked up that glorious paperback and got to work.
AND I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN.
I stayed up until 3:48 am finishing it! This is not a drill!
Okay, I'll admit the book ...more
Update: This is it? The cover redesign is a magical greenish background and a weird font? Did the publishers decide to drive us crazy? All I ca ...more
♥ Ilona Andrews can do no wrong. No, I don't know them. No, I don't have any stake in their writing career. I'm just a simple fan-girl sitting in front of a computer asking them to keep writing.
♥ The main characters, Nevada and Rogan, are awesome. Their chemistry is amazing.
Maybe I should roll down the window to let some of the sexual tension out. We needed a distraction, or I’d end up pulling over and we’d end up in the back seat, doing . . . ...more
Putting my intense hate aside for just a moment, I do need to clarify that I loved the actual text of this book. I've gotten through all of the Kate Daniels series and the Innkeeper stuff, but I really ought to spell this out... I think I am in love with this series and it's even better than the others.
Sheesh. It's really a case of misleading expectations thanks to that damn cover. I mean, technically, it has a strong romance plot through it, but for the most p ...more

THIS IS AWESOMENESS BOOKIFIED!
Reading felt like drinking this.
It promised a lot and OMG, did it deliver! It went right up to my head and made me feel fabulous. :)
Ilona & Gordon just went and did it again: reducing me to tears / laughter while making me hold my breath till the end and then of course serious deprivation, book hangover and the feeling of "IWANTTHENEXTBOOKRIGHTAWAY" set in. *SIGHandSTAREw ...more

I received this ARC copy of White Hot from Avon in exchanged for a honest and voluntary review. This book is set for publication May 30, 2017.

God, I love this series. Especially that terrible cover. If it's depicting what I think it's depicting in this book then lawlz, because ain't no time for sexings when you're about to be dead. I'm not going to say anymore on that because spoilers, but seriously, L-O-L.
When I finished BURN FOR ME and found out the sequel wasn't out yet, there were tantrums. This is precisely why I avoid new series. I have zero patience. If I like a book, I wa ...more

This is a book I'll be definitely re-reading every time I need to go back to a comfortable, soothing, familiar place.
I honestly have no words to describe just how much I love Ilona Andrews' simple writing and colorful characters. Coming back to any world they created always felt close to coming back home and meeting with old and beloved friends. White Hot was no exception.
Okay, let's take a second to properly loathe and virtually burn the trashy cover that doesn' ...more
Rogan basically got me like this
However, back to the book. Nevada and Rogan are very similar to Kate and Curran in the Kate Daniels series but set in a very different world where magic is the norm, Mages belong to Houses and fighting between them happens all the time. Rogan is just wonderful, one of the most powerful , he is de ...more
Re-reading because nothing fixes a book slump better than this series ;-)
This series is now my favorite IA series written and these books are part of the best books I've read this year. I can't recommend it enough. READ IT!
Nevada Baylor has a rare magic. As a truthseeker she can tell if someone is lying but she can also seek the truth in other ways. She’s always kept her magic a secret, but ever since she was hired to find Adam Pierce it’s become more difficult to keep others from finding...more
This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.
I loved this book so much! I really wish that I could give it more than 5 stars because it has an extra layer of awesome that you don't often find. I have been wanting to get my hands on this book ever since I finished Burn for Me back in 2014 and it turns out that it was worth the wait. I have already read this book twice and I know that I will be reading it many more times in the future. It is really that good.

“I can be a good dragon, when the occasion requires it.”
The first book was my favorite read of 2015. To say I was excited for the two sequels to be released in 2017 is an understatement. I couldn’t wait to get back to Rogan and Nevada’s adventures and romance, Ilona Andrews fun and inventive worldbuilding, and see what the author duo had in store for their appreciative readers. They’re definitely favorite authors of mine.
This book opens up with two different openings – the prologue s ...more
