Review of Burn For Me (Hidden Legacy) by Ilona Andrews

I am big fan of  Ilona Andrews, her Kate Daniels and Edge series were phenomenal  and when I heard that she was releasing a new work. I just had to read it. “Burn for Me”  is the first in the series and it was one fabulous beginning. I maybe partial to her work, but I am  fan, What can I do. “Burn for Me” is an  urban fantasy and the Romance is  slow burning, toe curling and sizzling hot.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews launches a brand-new Hidden Legacy series, in which one woman must place her trust in a seductive, dangerous man who sets off an even more dangerous desire . . .
Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile situation. Nevada isn't sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.

Then she's kidnapped by Connor "Mad" Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run and wanting to surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.

Rogan's after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she's getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.

 First of all the fact that the one we usually peg as the villain was the hero was a surprise for me, a good one too. Nevada and Connor are on the two extremes of the spectrum. The chemistry between them is like burning embers, a small whisper of wind can produce everburning flames.

A major fact I admire in Ilona’s work is the fact that there is always a  story, which moves independent to the romance. So, even if you remove the romance and write it as a murder mystery , it can stand on it’s own.

One problem I had with the story were the description. But that is personal, since, I am not a fan of descriptions or much detail

The story progresses quite smoothly and I loved the twist at the end. That was unexpected. So how much would I rate this story.....

Rating : 4.5/5

I recommend  this book not because I am a fan but because it’s a pretty good one. Being a Fan means you will expect a higher standard of quality from the author’s work and this author delivers. I am eagerly waiting for it’s second part.
