Publisher's Summary

In the wake of a failed love affair, brainy beauty Jilly Lovitz takes off for Tokyo. She's expecting to cry on her sister Summer's shoulder, then spend a couple months blowing off steam in Japan. Instead, she's snatched away on the back of a motorcycle, narrowly avoiding a grisly execution attempt meant for her sister and brother-in-law.
Her rescuer is Reno, the Committee's most unpredictable agent. They'd met once before and the attraction was odd - tattooed Yakuza punk meets leggy California egghead - but electric. Now Reno and Jilly are pawns in a deadly tangle of assassination attempts, kidnappings, and prisoner swaps that could put their steamy partnership on ice.

It was Fire and Ice...

The Fire - The book offered a lot of action! It was almost non-stop. It made for a good read on my commute. The storyline was the standard "I refuse to love you but I can't figure out how to stop it from happening" but there was enough action around the inevitable love story to keep you interested.

The Ice - The narrator was both good and marginal. The Japanese was great. It think this part of the narration added to the story. However, the narration was sometimes painful belabored (and that really does not describe it well). I wanted to have a crush on Reno but I couldn't because he oftentimes sounded so foolish in the narration. Even in that, I do not think another narrator would have added as much to the book.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. I have listened to it twice already. It was fast-paced and I felt myself cheering for the main characters both in battle and in love. I even enjoyed hearing some of the elements of Japanese culture coming through in the storyline. Good read!
