About the Author
"Ilona Andrews" is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.) They have co-authored two New York Times and USA Today bestselling series—the urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and the romantic urban fantasy of The Edge—and are working on the next volumes for both. They live in Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats.

The characters in the novel are refreshingly real, dynamic, and believable. I understand the anxiety of Nevada's mom, the elation that Bern (Nevada's cousin) feels when he gets the latest and greatest computer, and the frustration that Nevada feels when she is trying to talk her assignment into coming in. Andrews nails the characters well enough that you almost expect to run into one of them on the street.
As for plot, I love the story line. There is an overarching story that continues in book 2, but the plot here is complete, funny, and engaging all by itself.
Overall, this is a 5 out of 5 star book.
Nevada is a strong female character who is shows love for her family, struggles with her attraction to Mad Rogan -- the dangerous war hero, and has a snarky sense of humor. She is a heroine as likely to rescue the hero as to be rescued by him. This first book lays an excellent foundation for the series. Oh -- and that title? It doesn't mean what you think it means -- but you have to read the book to find out the real implication.
It's a good thing I did decide to continue because the pace, the dialogue, and the entire tone of the story changed from there and became so much better that I wanted to know what would happen next. It was no longer just 'meh'. It became freaking awesome! Following Nevada Baylor, the heroine of the book, was a wonderful experience that made me enjoy everything that followed the prologue and now I'm hooked. I want to see who had been behind Adam Pierce's diabolical scheme of trying to burn Houston to the ground. I want to see each step of the chase and how Connor 'Mad' Rogan will finally get Nevada into his bed. Will it be through fair means or foul? I'm about to find out!
Loved the love-hate sizzling chemistry and dialogue between Nevada and Rogan and other characters! I love that in the Ilona Andrews books (like many others, I'm also invested in the Kate Daniels series) the females are as strong and competent as their male counterparts, their skills, reasoning, and passions complementary vs the same.
I look forward to seeing how Connor deals with his nut job cousin who plays the "damsel in distress", starting this growing snowball of action, suspense, intrigue, and romance in a different kind of world. This new world plays on an old concept: the "haves" vs "the have nots".
And now on to book 2 of this trilogy!
Actually to be realistic there was no real romance in this story, but you never notice because the plot is so fast paced. There is longing and lust, but that's it. Mad Rogan and Nevada were racing against time to stop a mad man, or men from burning Houston down. Of course, they did in the nick of time. So, I can't wait for the second book to see what will happen between these two. Like I said, brilliant.
