Product Description

Britt Pfeiffer has never been that adventurous, but that's about to change. Wanting to impress her ex-boyfriend, Britt convinces best friend, Korbie, to take a trekking trip with her. But when a freak storm leaves the girls stranded they seek shelter in a cabin, where they find two knights in shining armour. Or so they think.
Britt quickly realises that the girls need to get off the mountain, fast. In exchange for her life, she is forced to guide the boys down, and as they set out on a harrowing journey through the cold and snow, Britt realises the only way to escape with her life is to pretend she is on their side. But is gorgeous, sexy Mason an enemy or an ally? Tension mounts, and it's only a matter of time before things turn deadly . . .
Dark and adrenaline-filled, Black Ice will have you on the edge of your seat right until the final twist.

This book was really intense and I loved it! Brit and her best friend decides to go to the mountains for their spring break but gets stuck in the snowstorm. When they decided to seek out a cabin to wait for the storm to blow over, they come upon a cabin occupied with two young men. This is where the real story begins.

It was dark and very realistic in her writing. There were unexpected twists throughout the book that kept you on the edge of the seat. The heroine was brave and was fast at adapting to different situations. This is one my first books by Becca Fitzpatrick and I must say I really enjoyed her writing. At first I felt that the beginning was going a little slow but then as the pace picks up and the actions just keeps coming right till This book was really intense and I loved it!

This is the first I have read of Becca Fitzpatrick even though I have her Hush Hush series sitting in my TBR pile. I can go either way on this book.
Let me write my review in tandem of good and not so good – that’s not to say it was bad – these are just things I made note of as I was reading as they irked me slightly.
Good: The suspense is good. The characters kept me guessing. As much as they were a predictable, the story line kept coming from left field and that made it really interesting.
Not So Good: Guessed how it was going to pan out but kept reading to confirm if my thoughts were correct.
Good: Scene setting. I was able to visualise all the locations which really helped with the suspense building.
Not So Good: The frenemy relationship between Britt and Korbie. Why they are friends is beyond me.
Not So Good: The pining for her ex- Calvin. It started to get annoying and made me start to think of Britt in an unfriendly light of ‘honey – do you need a vowel? He doesn’t want you! Solve the puzzle!’
Overall: if you put the relationships in a place of ‘they are young – that’s what frenemy and broken relationships are like and how they cause people to react. The suspense was great. In between dealing with real life things, I was keen to get back to the book to see what would transpire.
A good young adult read, concerns me though when authors write about toxic relationships that are then idolised. This book tends to lean towards that trap.

I was kindly provided with a free copy of this book from Net Galley to provide an honest review. Receiving this book for free did not influence my opinion nor review.

Black Ice just gave me the chills.

I haven't read many suspense/thriller books before. I just haven't really come across one or gone out of my way to read one. I know of quite a few YA suspense books but I just haven't really been motivated enough to pick one up.

Really though, I read this in less than a day. An afternoon even. I wasn't rushing through it or anything, it's just one of those books where you can sit yourself down and watch the story unfurl in front of your eyes.

I genuinely had no idea which of the three guys did it. I suspected each them at one point. Just when I was like 'Aha! I knew it was you!' one of the other two guys would do something suspicious or something guilty about their past would be revealed. Although, I did have more trust in Mason more than the other two.

The main thing that attracted me to Black Ice would have been the author. Unlike a few other book bloggers I know, I am a fan of Becca Fitzpatrick's 'Hush, Hush' series and I was pretty sure I would like this one. My expectations weren't huge, but they were at around a four star review. I think this is actually a little better than I expected, even if this is actually a four star review. So I'd say it surpassed my expectations.

I'm just going to say that I wasn't a huge fan of the relationship between the main character and any of the guys. Whether it was the one between her and her ex-boyfriend or the one between her and Mason. I just wasn't sold.

Another problem I had was that I struggled with the idea that the main character and her best friend just went into a house with two strange older boys that hadn't (really) previously met. I mean, haven't you heard of 'stranger danger' and all that?

This review contains spoilers. It would be almost impossible for me to get my thoughts across without delving into the story a bit, so read on at your own risk. Also there is not a whole lot of order to what I say. It was just getting thoughts out and being done with this book unfortunately.

I think that Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush Hush series would be one of my favourite series ever. I loved it. You only have to mention the name Patch and it sends me into a self induced swoony haze. When I saw that she was releasing a new book, I was pumped with excitement. The synopsis sounded amazing. Absolutely amazing. And that cover!! I don't mind admitting that I can be swayed to read a book by the cover alone, and this one was stunning. I was all in on this one. I couldn't get it in my hands quick enough.

Unfortunately, that's where my love ends. I found Black Ice to be one of the hardest books to get through this year. It took me two weeks to read it, and almost every page was hard work. Once again, it was my complete lack of care of the characters. I couldn't relate to any of them, on any level whatsoever. They frustrated me, they made me cringe, and they made me groan. There were many, many occasions where I was ready to give up, but I had people telling me to keep reading, because it would get better and that everything would come together. So forge ahead I did.

The premise of the story was actually pretty good. A girl held captive by two criminals, and to save her life she agrees to help them navigate their way off the mountain in blizzard conditions. It sounds awesome right? Unfortunately for me, it had some pretty big holes.
