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 by Becca Fitzpatrick was full of suspense and action. I figured out who was bad pretty early on, but the story was told so well that it didn't put a damper on my enjoyment of the story one bit. The characters are in the mountains, in a remote area, in the middle of a snowstorm. So, they have many challenges to survive, not to mention each other. There was a bit of romance thrown in the mix to amp it up, I'm not sure why I waited so long to read this. It definitely didn't disappoint. Just like Hush, Hush, Becca Fitzpatrick knows how to tell an addictive and engaging story that doesn't let you put it down.
