Yes! New Ilona Andrews book! Burn For Me very similar to the Kate Daniels series with the magical and mundane worlds mixing, a reluctant working class heroine with hidden powers, and an extremely powerful alpha male. The characters and settings are different but the patented Ilona Andrews style is definitely there. While this is classified as paranormal romance, don’t let that scare you away if you’re typically not a fan of romance. While it has more of a romance element to it than the Kate Daniels series, I would still categorize it as closer to urban fantasy with a healthy dose of romance vs the other way around. Andrews is a master of the slow burn so expect a lot of foreplay, both verbal and physical. It reminds me a bit of The Edge series in tone so if you like that series, I think you’ll like this one.

Ever since I read Marine for Hire (Front and Center #1) , I was hoping for a Mac and Kelli book. I was so excited to see that it was coming out that I pre-ordered it. This is big, since I don’t pre-order many books. When the book arrived, I started reading it immediately. I would have read it all night if I hadn’t had an early morning training. As it was, I stayed up too late and then felt like a kid again as I tried sneaking in chapters during the breaks and slows parts of the training. And when I did finally finish reading it, I went back and re-read all my favorite parts.
