For me, Burn for Me was an id reading kind of book. This novel taps into some of my favorite tropes and I had a hell of a blast reading it...The action comes fast and furious for much of this book. It’s not a thoughtful and contemplative read but it sure is exciting... It was so entertaining, almost pure fun.

Synopsis

#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.

In the end, I really enjoyed Burn for Me. Although I found it a bit slow moving at the start, the book found its pace and came together beautifully long before the end. I enjoyed the mystery of the artifact and chase after Adam, even with my own confusion over the artifact pieces. The overall conspiracy is impressive...

I love the fact that Nevada wasn't written to cower to anyone, especially Rogan. She's focused on her family, she enjoys her job, she's not about to go down without a fight, and she won't allow anyone to tell her what to do even after being kidnapped, chained, and magically tortured for information.
