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!

action packed!

this is a fun listen. i laughed and i cried. i loved the slow burn of romance between rogan and nevada. i loved that she is a tough cookie. only feedback was the narrators choice for rogans voice. it made him sound like a two bit trucker. but it wasnt enough to ruin the story. overall great fun

Not in love with Rogan's voice but that life. . .

Renee Raudman's narration gave me that way to hear the book and be sent on a journey while doing everything else that I have to do. The transportation to another world that was more fantastical and adventurous than the one I live in. I love listen to this even though I did not like Rogan's voice. It just felt off and did not match the picture in my head of him or what he would sound like.

I knew when I began book one that there was something very, very special about Nevada. She did not think so, much. She was an untamed, untapped source with no connections and no family power beyond their meager little PI business. Well, let us just say that as we navigate book two in this series we find that there’s a lot more to Nevada that meets the eye and there are others that want what she has.

Unique. Entangled. Embroiled. Intense. Another outstanding Ilona Andrews production. There are monsters, mages, bad people, good people, family, cohorts, and some you just can’t quite classify. Here you find a world that has romance, action, drama, fantasy, Rogan, Nevada, and some secrets come out. Pick it up. Read it. Read it again.

I never had a doubt that I would not love this one. The first one drew me in with its slow moderate pacing. This second one hooked me all the way in and had me panting with anticipation of book three, Wildfire, in this series. I have loved each book that I have read by the duo authors, Ilona Andrews. With each new series they create, I find new worlds and new adventures that captivate me and inspire me onward. Their slick, sweet, sensual combination of action, drama, romance and urban fantasy brings an edge that intensifies the read and makes for a very enriching reading adventure.

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.
