I have to start of by saying that I have passed over this book multiple times in the last couple of years because of the cover. Don't make the same mistake I did.
Ilona Andrews is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. If you have listened to at least one of her Kate Daniels books then you know what I am talking about.
This series is delicious and I am a bit sad that she only has this one book out so far!
The story starts off by explaining how the world works. In short, the more magic, the more powerful and wealthy.
The heroine Nevada is a small time private detective, handling small time cases like fraud or cheating spouse situations. It is a family-run business with a mom, grandma, and a couple to teenage kids. It is not a "normal" family..hint, grandma does not knit or bake cookies like a normal grandma. While the business is run by the family, it is owned by a corporation.
Nevada is forced into a bounty-hunter gig that eventually leads her to meeting Rogan. Rogan, is as dangerous as they come. He has some scary powers and is the last person Nevada would want to tangle with. Their first encounter is memorable.... it ends with Nevada getting kidnapped, chained to the floor and her brain almost being crushed. As the story develops, they learn that they need each other. Rogan offer Nevada the possibility of surviving this case and saving her family from complete destruction, while, Rogan needs Nevada for her rare gift, her skills that coming in handy as a partner and also to be the voice of reason.
There is not a dull moment that I can point out. The book is engaging. It has humor, action, suspense and slow burning romance. I love Renee Raudman, so I am biased when it comes to her narration. I think she does a wonderful job in this book and I hope she narrates all three books in this series!
Worth a credit: Yes! Let's just say that had I known this book was going to this good, I would have bought it even if I did not have a credit to use!

I've been a fan of Ilona Andrews since the first time I read a Kate Daniels book five years ago. I have also read all of the Edge series, which I loved, but not quite as much as Kate Daniels.
I expected phenomenal world building, eccentric characters, and an intriguing story. Andrews delivered, and then some. I was pulled into Nevada and Rogan's world and the twist at the end gives me high hopes for the continuation of the series.
Burn for Me is my new favorite Ilona Andrews novel, and the Hidden Legacy series has gone to the top of my "Must Read" series list. I can't wait for #2!!!!

nice book, well written and readed , the plot is really nice and new and as i said i really liked the female caracter ,strong, she knows Her limation but i can't say the same about the male One.. he is Just too mutch self assorbed and help doesn't show how mutch he cares about Her offline not through object..i Hope he develope in the next book ...
This story was gripping throughout and had me invested in the characters from the outset.
It has a well balanced mix of action, magic, sexual tension and wonder and I loved it!
The narrator does a great job and easily identifies each character at all times.
Burn for me is raw and powerful story of Nevada and Mad Rogan. i loved this book it's a story of a simple repo girl who is trying to make a decent living to be able to support her family, but ending up working with mad rogan, a prime mage that is powerful beyond belief. Renee Raudman's narrative is excellent, her portrayal of all the characters is incredibly realistic ans emotion filled.
The narration was entertaining I am waitin impatiently to find out how mad rogan gets the girl
