I was not sure what to expect when I read BLACK ICE by Becca Fitzpatrick. This standalone promised to be quite the departure from her Hush, Hush series. And it was. And it was fan-freaking-tastic.
It was suspenseful and chilling and kept me guessing about certain things that I will not reveal. And it was action-packed and exciting, and there were even moments that were romantic and sexy as heck.
I would have loved to tease a passage that captured some of those more chilling moments – as they were my most favorite. But every time I grabbed one to post, I realized it would have spoiled that portion of the story. And so I chose this one…
My Favorite Quote
“It started out like this,” I said in that same hushed voice. With me. Under you.
He wiped a strand of hair off my cheek. He held his hand there a moment, debating. An unfathomable look flickered in his brown eyes, and I had no idea what he was thinking, or what his next move would be. – Britt Pfieffer
The author did a fantastic job of creating nail-biting suspense in her novel. And I would have loved to share just one of those jaw-dropping, horror-inducing moments. But they are best left discovered in the story.
Instead I chose just a portion of a very sexy exchange between Britt and another character, who I shall not name, as it, too, is one of my most favorite aspects to BLACK ICE. Becca Fitzpatrick knows just how to create those perfect, swoony-worthy scenes and she brought that skill to her latest novel.
If I were to share a longer excerpt from this particular part of the book, you’d probably need a fan. Because it gets pretty hot.
But it was that first line, the quote from Britt with the two short sentences unsaid, that grabbed me immediately. It made my breath catch. It laser-focused my attention. Because I knew that what followed would sizzle.
And it definitely did.
So while the shocking lines that set this book apart from the author’s other series were among my most favorite, it was this moment, this quote and short passage, that brought a new dimension to this story. A story I absolutely loved.

Have you read it already and found it to be as awesome as you’d hoped it would be? And if you have, what were some of your most favorite aspects to the story?
Was it the nail-biting suspense? Was it the danger? Was it the excitement of trying to guess who was guilty? Was it not knowing who to trust?
And was there a quote or passage that you loved that was different from the one I chose, or was it this particular sizzling scene that you bookmarked as a favorite?
