Publisher's Summary

The Hidden Legacy series by New York Times best-selling author Ilona Andrews continues as Nevada and Rogan navigate a world where magic is the norm...and their relationship burns hot.

Nevada Baylor has a unique and secret skill - she knows when people are lying - and she's used that magic (along with plain hard work) to keep her colorful and close-knit family's detective agency afloat. But her new case pits her against the shadowy forces that almost destroyed the city of Houston once before, bringing Nevada back into contact with Connor "Mad" Rogan.

Rogan is a billionaire Prime - the highest rank of magic user - and as unreadable as ever, despite Nevada's talent. But there's no hiding the sparks between them. Now that the stakes are even higher, both professionally and personally, and their foes are unimaginably powerful, Rogan and Nevada will find that nothing burns like ice.

Amazing

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

What other book might you compare White Hot to, and why?

Kate Daniels series.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

All of them?

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nevada and Rogan have great chemistry and engage in a lot of witty banter which made me chuckle

Love it!

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.

As Fabulous As All Their Other Books.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, and I already have recommended it on. The characters and story just hook you in that you can't put it down until you know what happens.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love all the characters in this book. I love we get the meet and expand on alot of characters we only got to see a little in the first book like Nevada's sisters and cousins and find out more about their magic.

What about Renee Raudman’s performance did you like?

She always is very good at distinguishing characters voices. You don't feel like you're listening to a woman put on a man's voice, that becomes their voice. She's also consistent between books so the characters sound the same

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Definitely had an emotional reaction. You connect so much with the characters. I cried when you experience the loss that one of them suffers, felt happy at the Rogan and Nevada scenes, cheered when they made headway with the case.

Any additional comments?

Ilona Andrews never miss! I've read almost all their books and I can't say that any of them are bad. As soon as a book is released I've got it and enjoy it as fast as I possibly can!

Super entertaining, unsure on narrator!

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.

Better than the first

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!
Happy listening!

Original, riveting, and thrilling!

The second book in a series usually struggles, but not White Hot! Ilona Andrews ups the stakes, ups the pace, and delivers an incredible and unique story in a wildly original urban fantasy world. Renee Raudman delivers her usual excellent performance and is the perfect person to make this book even more exciting and dynamic. I can't wait to start the next one!

I am conflicted

This should be a great series, but it does not do it for me. I am sure many others will think it is great, but I simply could not get excited by the book. The characters are all very well written, especially Nevada, the heroine. The plot is excellent, but it just does not come together well for me. The chemistry between Nevada and rogan is not what I wished it to be. I returned the first book, but had already purchased the other two. to them all now and I am still conflicted. I will say that the third book is the best of the three and the authors were starting to hit their stride.

Worth waiting for...

I had to wait over two years for this book. It. Was. Worth. The. Wait! Connor "Mad" Rogan is definitely on my list of Top Book Boyfriends. Nevada Baylor is on my list of heroines I most want to do a Girl's Night Out with. Just sayin'. This is just as true now, on a relisten to the book.

The world-building continues to create a perfect backdrop and the authors are masters when it comes to the rules of magic. All of the characters are nuanced, layered, and have a reason for popping up on the page. The sexual chemistry between Rogan and Nevada is incendiary. The action is packed. The plot perfectly paced.

Renee Raudman is on my list of Top Ten Narrators as well.

Oh, and I totally want to be adopted by Nevada's family. Any grandmother who names a tank Romeo (and knows not only how to drive but fire him) is my kind of relative! #UrbanFantasy #Romance #FemaleProtagonist #MagicAndMayhem #BookBoyfriendHero #Tagsgiving #Sweepstakes

Fantastic storyline again! Mediocre Narrator

The Ilona Andrews duo has done it again, with an exciting, interesting, unique storyline! Once again, however, the narration leaves much to be desired. I'm sure Renee Raudman is a nice person, but she makes every character sound like a decrepit old lady. It can get quite distracting. When she does the heroine's "power choice", it's so preposterous that I actually burst out laughing every time. It really takes you out of the story. This series, read by a different narrator, would be absolute DYNAMITE.

Amazing, Exciting and Unmissable

The story is a great follow up to Burn For Me...this series is action packed, keeps you guessing and also romantic. The authors can't seem to write anything but total page turner....I've read the book and listened to audio...the narrator is excellent, makes each voice so individual you don't think it's the same person...she was also used for all the Kate Daniels series and was just as amazing....please try this book because you will not be disappointed....

A little too convoluted at times

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.

Keeps getting better!

Having thoroughly enjoyed the first book I couldn't wait to listen to the second instalment and it didn't disappoint!

The story seems to intensify in this book and flowed seamlessly from book 1.

Plenty of magic, power, passion, twists and turns. Exactly what I hoped for in this book.

Download it now, you won't regret it. :)

Since I loved the first book so much I was worried how this would match up. Thankfully, there was nothing to worry about. Fast paced and unpredictable, just as I like them.

Good book but not as good as previous from author

I am a huge fan of this author and was ready to download the book when it was released. It is a good book, however it is closer to erotica than previous books and to me that did not fit with the series.
I am ok with that genre but feel like the line of flirtatious fantacy is far superiour and made this author stand out above the rest. Hope they find it again in future books.
