"In the wake of a failed love affair, brainy beauty Jilly Lovitz takes off for Tokyo. She's expecting to cry on her sister Summer's shoulder, then spend a couple months blowing off steam in Japan. Instead, she's snatched away on the back of a motorcycle, narrowly avoiding a grisly execution attempt meant for her sister and brother-in-law. Her rescuer is Reno, the Committee's most unpredictable agent. They'd met once before and the attraction was odd-- tattooed Yakuza punk meets leggy California egghead-- but electric. Now Reno and Jilly are pawns in a deadly tangle of assassination attempts, kidnappings and prisoner swaps that could put their steamy partnership on ice" -- p. [4] of cover.… (mer)

Fire and Ice
3 Stars

Jilly Lovitz arrives in Japan to visit her sister and becomes the target of Russian assassins and Japanese Yakuza who want to use her as bait in a mafia turf war. Sent in to protect her, Committee agent, Reno, must deal not only with Jilly’s distrust of his motives, but his increasing attraction to a woman who is definitely “hands off”.

Not one of the better installments in Anne Stuart’s Ice series. The plot is paper thin and the romance is unrealistic.

The mutual attraction between Jilly and Reno began two years earlier when they first set eyes on each other. Jilly’s adolescent crush has not matured and she comes across as a lovestruck teenager making excuses for a man who treats her like dirt. Reno is not much better and his degrading and condescending attitude is not appealing in a hero. The fact that they cannot spend two minutes in each other’s company without hurling insults does not make for a promising romance and the eventual “I love you's” are not believable.

The kidnapping assassins plot and internal struggle within a Yakuza family lacks foundation and is not fleshed out well. There is never any real threat from the villain and the last few chapters are completely superfluous.

All in all, Stuart’s ice cold heroes are starting to wear thin. Its a good thing that there is only one more book in the series. Hopefully it will end on a high note.

Another great entry in the "Ice" series. ( )

Very fast paced up to the very end. I loved reading Jilly an Reno's story. I wanted to learn more about Reno's past and personality and this book really gave so much insight. ( )

This started out with exciting action but that soon got repetitive with main characters constantly denying their attraction. The heroine was foolish and everyone spent too much time thinking about things so I started skimming but did finish. Jilly goes to Tokyo to visit her sister, gets caught in a deadly battle when Reno comes to her rescue.
