Book Review: Black Ice - Becca Fitzpatrick


Title: Black Ice
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick

Synopsis from Goodreads:   
Danger is hard to resist in this sexy thriller from Becca Fitzpatrick, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hush, Hush saga.

Brit Pheiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn't prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants;but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage.

Britt is forced to guide the men off the mountain, and knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. The task is made even more complicated when Britt finds chilling evidence of a series of murders that have taken place there and in uncovering this, she may become the killer's next target.

But nothing is as it seems, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt. Is he an enemy? Or an ally?

Black Ice is New York Times bestselling author Becca Fitzpatrick's riveting romantic thriller set against the treacherous backdrop of the mountains of Wyoming. Falling in love should never be this dangerous.

My Review:
Black Ice was a wonderful YA Suspense novel.  I was entranced with this book from the very start, and was getting irritable because I wasn’t finding time to finish it (my poor husband can attest to this).  Although I found the “mystery” of the novel easy to predict, the journey was the entertainment of the book.  I enjoyed how Britt was viewed differently by each person she did life with; and feel that this is a testament to her being whoever she needed to be to fit the scenario, however I found it ironic that the person she was when she was lost in the woods with Mason was probably the best interpretation of who she is when she is allowed to reach her full potential.   On one hand, this book was way different from the Hush, Hush series Becca Fitzpatrick wrote previously, however the elements of the ‘bad-boy’ guys she writes are definitely still present in this book!

Rated:  PG-13, Some violence, mild cussing
Genre: Young Adult - Romance, Suspense
Rating:  5 Stars

Sometimes life gets in the way of my reading time also. I suspect this happens to all readers. We so like to escape into a good book.

I read the whole hush hush series in a 2 days. I just couldn't stop. I might pick this up. I have to say that hush hush was pretty predictable as well, but I still enjoyed them.

I started the Hush, Hush series way back when it first came out, but it got lost on my TBR list over the years. I started listening to the audio say the same time as I picked up this book - I've been waiting for the audio of Credendo for what seems like forever now. :P
