Wildfire by Ilona Andrews

From Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author, the thrilling conclusion to her Hidden Legacy series, as Nevada and Rogan grapple with a power beyond even their imagination…

Nevada Baylor can’t decide which is more frustrating—harnessing her truthseeker abilities or dealing with Connor “Mad” Rogan and their evolving relationship. Yes, the billionaire Prime is helping her navigate the complex magical world in which she’s become a crucial player—and sometimes a pawn—but she also has to deal with his ex-fiancée, whose husband has disappeared, and whose damsel-in-distress act is wearing very, very thin.

Rogan faces his own challenges, too, as Nevada’s magical rank has made her a desirable match for other Primes. Controlling his immense powers is child’s play next to controlling his conflicting emotions. And now he and Nevada are confronted by a new threat within her own family. Can they face this together? Or is their world about to go up in smoke?

Book #3 and some great stuff happens here! While the action slowed down a tad in this book, I still couldn't get enough of Nevada and Connor (aka Mad Rogan). Their chemistry is off the charts hot and Nevada always gives Connor a run for his money by not bending every time he expects her to! Their push and pull is perfection!

Connor's ex-fiancée, Rynda, comes to Nevada's firm because her husband is kidnapped. After Rynda's mother was found to be one of the co-conspirators in the treachery surrounding the Primes, Rynda is left in a magical exile. No one will touch her or her problems. Nevada is her last chance to find her husband, hopefully safe. Of course, as things become clear about Rynda's husband and his playing both sides, Rynda makes her play to get Connor back. This adds a nice edge of jealousy to the mix and I loved Nevada's inner thoughts and emotions playing out in the story. All the while the Baylor family is trying to make themselves into a Prime House and the trials, along with the alignments of other houses and politics of magic, this book gets into the thick of the hierarchy of the magic families and their alliances. We delve into the hidden talents of Nevada's sisters and cousins as they have to show their magical abilities. I'm really enjoying the world building and the characters emerging as friend or foe. Classic Andrews style!! Bring me #4!!

I’ve been hooked on this series from the start and I devoured this third story in a single sitting as soon as it hit my Kindle. I love Nevada more and more with each book. In this third book, Nevada is calculated, fearless, and a little bit ruthless. Nevada grew into her powers in book two, and this time she is confident and poised as a Head of House making difficult decisions to keep her family safe.

I really enjoyed watching Nevada and Connor Rogan’s relationship develop in this story. Nevada establishes herself as Connor’s equal in the second book but in this story the two work to establish a balance between them and boundaries that allow Nevada her independence while satisfying Connor’s need to protect her. Connor’s gorgeous ex-girlfriend adds an interesting twist here and I loved the way Nevada dealt with the situation.

Nevada’s family might be my favourite part of these books. Before, we’ve seen glimpses of the magic powers her sisters and cousins possess but as the application to become a House progresses, we get to see them in action. I love the huge personalities in Nevada’s family and I really enjoy their underdog status. We get more of Nevada’s paternal family history in this book and both of Nevada’s grandmothers continue to entertain.

I don’t want to spoil anything so I’m going to end my review here. This series just keeps getting better and it is becoming one of my all time favourite Urban Fantasy series. (I just wish they could sort out the covers). I love these books so much and I can’t wait for the next one.

I seriously hope we get more Nevada and Connor. I absolutely LOVE this couple. They quickly became not just one of my favorite paranormal couples, but my number one favorite couple. I love how strong they are individually, yet how much they put on the line when it comes to love and family. There is so much about this couple and their adventures that just snags me and drags me in each and every time I pick up one of their stories. The way they banter is hilarious and heartwarming at the same time. They couldn't be more perfectly matched. Connor breaks my heart because of what he's dealt with and how hard it has made him, but he simply melts for Nevada. I love it. Did I say that yet? I do. FAVORITE COUPLE.

Now let's not forget the super action-packed plot and the handful of sexy scenes. However, and this is shocking, the sexy scenes really only made me fall in love with them more because they are so lovable already it's fun getting that little peek into such private moments between such a power couple.

Nevada has grown so much through the series that at the end of this one you can't help but want to jump up and shout in support for her as she steps up and truly becomes the head of her house and faces the hard decisions. And then there is Connor, big, mean, Connor who is willing to tear his own heart out because he feels it is what is best for her. *melt*

See. I just can't put into words how much I've loved this series and these characters. Heck, even the secondary characters were amazing!

I have enjoyed every book I've picked up from this author and especially the Hidden Legacy trilogy, which I'm obsessed with. Andrews keeps you in suspense and continues to crank up the heat with her characters, which is why we all can't get enough of Connor and Nevada. This author duo has a way of drawing you in and keeping you hooked to the very last page!

In Andrews' third installment, Nevada and Connor once again combine forces in order to navigate their way around messy House politics and find a way to help Rynda, Connor's ex fiancée, discover who might be behind her husband's kidnapping before it's too late.

Wildfire, book #3, was just as addictive as the previous two books and I could not put it down. I feel like book #3 has given me so many answers to all those burning questions I've had about Nevada's family history, but I still wanna know more. I hope Andrews' publisher might take pity on us and give us some more books because I could even live with a spin-off – I'm just not quite ready to say goodbye to all these phenomenal characters and the world of Primes! I've come to adore the whole Baylor family and I've really enjoyed seeing how Nevada has grown into her abilities. Although the Hidden Legacy series is only contracted for three books I will continue to hold out hope for more!

Another 5-star read for Ilona Andrews' Hidden Legacy series.
