Burn for Me (Hidden Legacy #1) by Ilona Andrews - Review

#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.

The first book of the year I finished is Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews. After reading the Kate Daniels series I could not wait to begin another Ilona Andrews book. However, after reading it, I jumped straight on google/goodreads to find out when the next one would be out... 2017? Really guys? You hooked me into this great book and world, and are now testing my patience (which I lack). 

Okay, slight rant over.

Anyway, Ilona Andrews does not disappoint in this first instalment of her new series. I'm not going to lie but I like this book much better than the Kate Daniels series - don't ask me why, I don't know... But this first book was kick-ass!

Nevada is similar yet different to Kate in many ways. She's an investigator, but mostly she's a loyal and loving daughter and provider for her family, taking over after her father. Nevada is used to ousting cheating spouses, so when she's ordered by her Boss to bring in a homicidal, psychopathic pyrokinetic, it's slightly out of her league. She joins up forces with Mad Rogan, who is after his younger cousin, an accomplice to the pyrokinetic.

Mad Rogan. Sigh. This guy is just so incredibly badass, and regardless of what Nevada says, he's a good guy deep down. He's loyal. Helpful. Charming. This guy is just incredibly swoon-worthy (and now I have to wait two years to get my next fill... Boo, that sucks!)

This book is just full of action, slight romance and just general badassness. This book rocks. You guys need to go read this if you haven't already!
