Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

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.

This book was a thrilling ride right from the start. No sooner are Britt and Korbie, two high school seniors, driving to a cabin in the woods when they are unexpectedly stranded by a blizzard. Trying to find shelter, they come across a cabin and what they first thought was salvation. It turns out that it’s actually two strangely acting convicts on the run from the law. Britt is soon taken hostage and forced to lead the men to the nearest main road. 

The reader (and Britt) must then try to figure out if one of the guys friendliness is just an act. Just when you think you have it all figured out, another twist is thrown into the story. The book is very well written in that the action just flows. The only bump for me was the epilogue – the ending was just a little too perfect. It reminded me of a teen/youth romance novel. Regardless, make sure you start reading the book early enough so you are not up all night trying to finish it!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
