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.
As good as Kate Daniel? Eh, no. And seriously, this cover, I hate this cover! I saw an earlier version and that was amazing! But this screams PNR. Ok nothing wrong with PNR, but this is not PNR. I hope they get a better cover for book 2.
The world was cool. Magic, Houses that rule, all interesting. Nevada was pretty kick-ass (even if she was way too distracted by a sexy guy, come on girl!)
Mad Rogan was, omg yes fine, HOT! He was just so freaking insane, and I might have a weakness for sociopaths it seems.
I did have a problem with their relationship though. He kidnaps her. And this is not a nice kidnapping (like they could be nice). No, it's BAD. And still after it, she is all, well he is hot. Really? I do get why she works with him even after that, he is powerful and she needs his help. And she does stay away. This is not a romance. They kiss once or twice?, and that is it. But she thinks about him a lot. In the end I forgive it, cos he is...ahem, hot ;) But I do feel like the kidnapping could have been done differently. Now it's more Stockholm's syndrome.
Was I hyped for more? Definitely. It gets like that when everyone tells you it is AMAZEBALLS. I would not say it was that. It was good. Nothing more nothing less.
I hate it
