White Hot by Ilona Andrews


The Hidden Legacy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews continues as Nevada and Rogan navigate a world where magic is the norm…and their relationship burns hot

Nevada Baylor has a unique and secret skill—she knows when people are lying—and she's used that magic (along with plain, hard work) to keep her colorful and close-knit family's detective agency afloat. But her new case pits her against the shadowy forces that almost destroyed the city of Houston once before, bringing Nevada back into contact with Connor "Mad" Rogan.

Rogan is a billionaire Prime—the highest rank of magic user—and as unreadable as ever, despite Nevada’s “talent.” But there’s no hiding the sparks between them. Now that the stakes are even higher, both professionally and personally, and their foes are unimaginably powerful, Rogan and Nevada will find that nothing burns like ice …

Do you have it yet? I'm waiting to see if the library will get the e-audio. They have the ebook now but I want the audio.

I'm thinking of doing a re-listen on this one. I'm not sure I remember it all... I keep thinking the plot applies to another book I read.

Shouldn't you be reading The Fifteenth Minute (The Ivy Years, #5) by Sarina Bowen ? ;)
I don't blame you though, I'm itching to start this one!


message 26: by ShoSho , Moderator (new) - rated it 5 stars

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments lol
I needed audio and White Hot is on audio but the other one is an ebook! So....
I was going to start them at the same time but the problem is that both are in first POV and it makes it harder.

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments Instead of reading The Fifteenth Minute (The Ivy Years, #5) by Sarina Bowen I'm reading my ebook if white hot from thw beginning!

Yes, there were scenes that were pure Kate. However, I still enjoyed it.

Not far at all...still not at the end of Chapter 2. I had a volunteer job that I was working on (should have put my audio on, but I was trying to concentrate...LOL!) and then got sidetracked by cleaning house for company that was coming.... who never showed! **shakes head**

I'll get back to it tomorrow, though.


message 44: by Lara (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lara | 2335 comments I read this at the beginning of the month and then forgot about posting here. I agree that Cornelius is an interesting character. Katarina's talent was also a surprise. I think something happened in the past that made them realize how scary it could be. They referred to a situation when she had to be rescued.

As for Lian's magic, that was odd as I wasn't sure how it was different from a short term precog. He was predicting rather than knowing?

I think I also gave it 4.5 stars. I felt that Rogan is a grittier character than Curran and the relationship he has with Nevada has more questionable behaviors. While he is in some ways an alphahole, he is also incredibly damaged while Curran had an "adopted" father and strong set of friends that gave him balance. Rogan is more a law unto himself and that means he pushes into unacceptable territory in his interactions with Nevada. And he doesn't really see it unless called on it, and even then he doesn't necessarily understand why it's a problem.


message 45: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 5 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments I agree that Rogan is "a law unto himself". He's also mentally at war with the world and in survival mode. The only reason he cooperates with Lenora Jordan is because he sees her as an ally. While Curran wouldn't fight Jim unless Jim attacked him first, Rogan would kill Agustine in a heartbeat if he saw him as an enemy and potential threat.

anjuli (pintobean) | 25 comments I need to re-read WH again. I read it fast and tried to absorb everything. I feel there were some things I could understand better. I cannot wait for Wildfire. So excited.


message 50: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Loved this book. Loved Rogan more in this one, if that's possible. LOL!
