Release Day Review ~ Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

Black IceTitle: Black Ice
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Genre: YA Romantic Thriller
Published: October 7th 2014






Sometimes danger is hard to see... until it’s too late.

Britt 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.

But 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 have read and enjoyed Becca’s Hush, Hush series, so when I saw this romantic thriller, I just had to get it! I wanted to see if she could sweep me away in a new world and keep me on the edge of my seat. I can tell you she did a fantastic job with Black Ice and I was certainly glued to the pages (My hubby even got annoyed because I was still reading at 11.45 at night… I just had to get to the end!!).

Britt has planned a camping/hiking trip with her best friend Korbie since her boyfriend, Calvin, split up with her eight months ago. Calvin is Korbie’s older brother, and Britt has crushed on him since they were kids, so she thought that this would bring them back together. The girls become lost when the blizzard comes in and land on the doorstep of a cabin with two guys they don’t know.

Britt is a character you would want to be your friend. She doesn’t just think about herself and made plans to protect her friend. On this journey she showed courage and stood up when needed. She realised that she isn’t a scared girl and doesn’t need to rely on a guy. Seeing her grow throughout this book was amazing, especially when she pushed herself.

When I was finished this book, I sat back and contemplated about it. I thought that it was very well done and felt that I picked up the clues along the way. I had my suspects early on and even by the time I figured it out, it didn’t take anything away from me enjoying the book. Becca Fitzpatrick blew me away with this story, with well fleshed out characters and a gripping plot. If you enjoy Beccas books or a good suspenseful read you should give this standalone a try!

  8. This book has been blowing up the blogopshere as of late, and I have yet to read a single negative review for it which is definitely a good sign. And, double-yay for stand-alones! I'll be bumping Becca Fitzpatrick to the top of my TBR pile asap.

    Great review as always, you know I freaking love your reviews and you absolutely kill my TBR lol. So I'm really glad I got to read this one, I've heard of this book and wondered how it would be. I didn't particularly enjoy Becca's Hush Hush series, I got through the second book and couldn't continue, I think it wasn't developed properly and it just didn't do it for me but I know it's very popular and has a strong following.
