*This ARC was sent to me by Goodreads and Simon and Schuster for an honest review.*
Sometimes danger is hard to see... until it’s too late.
Pfeiffer 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.
In exchange for
her life, Britt agrees to guide the men off the mountain. As they set
off, Britt 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.
nothing is as it seems in the mountains, 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…
I really really liked this! I went in without knowing anything about it. Yes I must have read the summary when I entered the Goodreads contest, but that was months ago and I had forgotten. I was hooked from the very beginning. Reading about Lauren had me sick to my stomach because what happened to her in that cabin might as well have been ripped from my nightmares. I needed to know who did that to her and that kept me reading to figure it out. After meeting Britt I immediately knew she was going to suffer a similar fate and was even more enthralled. I did guess most of the major points (I watch too much Criminal Minds to be fooled), but I thoroughly enjoyed this regardless.
I loved Britt. She went from being a spoiled, ex-loving chick to a fight-until-her-last-breath woman. She did everything she could to survive. I respected her for that. Korbie on the other hand was just a bitch. She had her place in the story, an important place, but I still couldn't stand her. I don't think very many people will be able to. Jude <3 That's all I'll say. He made some seriously messed up choices, but <3 .
I think that if you like suspenseful books than you'll love this. It was ale to hold my attention from page one. If you don't usually like suspense, still give this a try because I think most readers will like it.
