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 …
A couple of months ago, I read Burn For Me by Ilona Andrews and I liked it. I didn’t fall hard in love with it like so many of my friends did, but I did like it. I liked Nevada and Mad Rogan a lot, and they were the biggest reason that I decided to go ahead and pick up White Hot.
With this second book, I’m feeling much the same. I like Nevada and Mad Rogan so much. I love Nevada for her badassery and for how down-to-earth and almost normal she seems, and I love Mad Rogan for how he is just the opposite. They make a great team and they have chemistry that won’t stop. (I thought I would DIE if they didn’t finally kiss in this book. DIE, I tell you.)
But I think the story and world are okay. I think that-for me-the hype around these books made me expect something more than they can give. I’ve definitely set my expectations very high for books by Ilona Andrews. I’m 3/3 now in feeling this exact way.
I’m certainly continuing with Wildfire, and instead of continuing mainly for Nevada and Mad Rogan: I’m now also in it for Nevada’s awesome family. I’ve fallen pretty hard for Nevada’s sisters, her mother, and her grandmother. And Bug! I adore him! (Although I know he isn’t technically family.)
But I’m adjusting my expectations going into the next book. I’ll see if that makes me love it instead of just liking it a lot. I think that’s fair.
