Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews
Hidden Legacy #1

#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 case. 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 or 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.

I absolutely love Ilona Andrew's books, so when I saw she was writing a new series, I have to admit there might have been a bit of fan girl excitement. Of course, a part of me was wondering if lightning would strike twice and this series could be as good as the Kate Daniels series. Well let me just say that BURN FOR ME was every bit as good as any Kate book, and dare I say... possibly even better. You can really tell that this author duo is only getting better at their craft, and it showed in BURN FOR ME.

It's a toss up at to whether the world, characters, or the romance enthralled me the most, so I'll briefly talk about each without spoiling. The world behind the story was fascinating, and unlike anything I've read before. It felt like a mix between a dystopian and a normal urban fantasy, which I loved as it was anything but predictable. Now onto the characters. I absolutely loved Nevada. She's so fierce and devoted, but don't worry, she's definitely not Kate 2.0. She generally tries to avoid danger, and thinks before she leaps, and I enjoyed seeing the sensible aspects about her. The rest of the characters are every bit as well fleshed out, making for a really interesting cast.  Lastly onto the romance. While things were more of a set up rather than an actual romance, lordy can I tell that things will explosive. Oh my goodness is the attraction between Mad Rogan and Nevada incredible. I can't wait to see how this plays out!

BURN FOR ME is an utter treat. From the amazing world, to the incredible cast of characters, and enthralling plot, this book should be at the very top of any urban fantasy fan's TBR pile. I simply cannot praise this new series enough and will be counting down the months impatiently until the next release.
