Would you consider the audio edition of White Hot to be better than the print version?
No, I read the first book and wish I'd read the second one. I had a hard time with the narrator, I thought she did a good job but her voice was way too mature for the character. At several points I thought she sounded in her late 50's which didn't make sense for a 20 something main character. I found her male voice for Mad Rogan to be a little silly, he sounded a bit like an aging cowboy.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved the quirkiness of all the characters and the world building. Ilona Andrews never disappoints with a full cast of unique and interesting characters with a solid world. The house system was well developed, the fight scenes had great pacing and the intimate scenes caused some good blushing!
What does Renee Raudman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I have a hard time leaving a bad review because I genuinely think Renee is a good narrator, just not for this book. I don't want to nitpick, my main thought is just that her voice is too matronly for a 20 something character. A few times when Nevada exclaimed or gasped aloud (rather than us hearing her internal dialog) she had a bit more of a higher, more breathy voice which I thought was a little more realistic.

Let me start by saying I love everything Ilona Andrews writes. Any of their series you pick up will be amazing. This series is no different. Nevada is snarky, loyal, fierce and can shoot her enemies with precision or break their minds with her magic. Mad Rogan got his nickname because he will do anything he has to to win, and his enemies shudder at his name. Love can make you vulnerable, and neither Nevada nor Rogan do vulnerable very well. When an enemy kills Rohan's people and leaves Nevada's client a widower and a single father they will stop at nothing to avenge the fallen. It means working together and dealing with their own issues. It means realizing they can't live without each other, even if they constantly drive each other mad.
As always Renee Raudman does an incredible job narrating this book. I look forward to hearing her voice Ilona Andrew's amazing characters flawlessly. She is insanely talented. She is one of my absolute favorite narrators. You will not be disappointed!

Enjoyed the first book of the series, but absolutely loved this one.
Story is fantastic and keeps you wanting to listen more.
Brilliant narration as always ❤️
I am an Ilona Andrews fan and will always try anything written by this partnership. I don't think I've yet found a book I don't like, though some series are better than others. The magic in the Hidden Legacy series is vague, rather illogical and lacks depth, unlike in the Kate Daniels world but still creates an interesting setting. I found the plot overcomplicated and the sex scenes so tedious I skipread but really enjoyed the characters, their development and the elements of humour in the book. Renee Raudman is a brilliant narrator and perfect for the Andrews series.
What made the experience of listening to White Hot the most enjoyable?
I am yet to meet a book by Ilona Andrews that I didn't love. They are experts at creating dynamic characters, intricate world building and action filled plot lines. To top it off, they throw in just enough romance to get readers emotionally invested in the protagonists, but not so much that it distracts from the other elements of the plot. As usual, Renee Raudman managed to bring the whole lot to life with fantastic narration

Love this series! As usual Ilona Andrews writes action with a bit of romace. This series is as good as Kate Daniels, maybe even better.
