Ilona Andrews - Wildfire

Just when Nevada Baylor has finally come to accept the depths of her magical powers, she also realizes she’s fallen in love. Connor “Mad” Rogan is in many ways her equal when it comes to magic, but she’s completely out of her elements when it comes to her feelings for him. To make matters more complicated, an old flame comes back into Rogan’s life…
Rogan knows there’s nothing between him and his ex-fiance, Rynda Sherwood. But as Nevada begins to learn more about her past, her power, and her potential future, he knows she will be faced with choices she never dreamed of and the promise of a life spent without him.
As Nevada and Rogan race to discover the whereabouts of Rynda’s kidnapped husband and are forced to confront Nevada’s grandmother, who may or may not have evil motives, these two people must decide if they can trust in each other or allow everything to go up in smoke.

Comment: This will be a short comment because I don't have much more to say besides "this is perfection", which sort of makes it difficult to keep writing and writing about what can be summarized with the word "perfection" like I said.

This the third installment in the Hidden legacy series, (well at least I hope it's a series and not just the so far trilogy) and in this book Nevada finally faces the reality and makes the request to start a House with her family. She is also tasked with finding her boyfriend's ex fiancé's husband and she needs to deal with the fact her paternal grandmother is after her and her family because of their magic. Thankfully, Nevada is smart, resourceful and she has people and family with her...

This is an excellent addition to the series. I know I already said so, but this felt perfect to em, especially when it comes to plot structure and details intertwined together so well it just feels and seems so easy when countless not so good books out there proof it isn't so.
The authors must have a great technique when it comes to communicate what they want to achieve, what details to use and can grab the reader's attention the best.
The thing is, the books by these authors all feel they could only go the way they do and each little detail, every sentence, even the ones used to portray a comedy scene are chosen to better highlight the story. It really feels that way. 

One could say there lots of details, especially related to some character's powers or other more domestic situations not directly related to the main plot that are irrelevant but honestly, it feels that is the reason why the books seem so vibrant and the characters alive. It just paints a picture that is so easy to imagine and wonder what it would be like to be part of.

As for the main plot, I think it followed the expected path, the characters keep surprising us and I loved how we get glimpses of everyone, and that makes them more realistic to us.
I think the end isn't as definite as it could, so I hope more books will come. I loved how some details in several scenes only made me more curious about the characters and what they go do in the future. I just love this world and how everything is expected to work out. Some of the best hours I've spent reading!
Grade: 10/10
