Review : Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

“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? ”

well, that was better than expected. this book had so many bad reviews that i was a bit scared when i decided to read it. I didn’t read the Hush Hush series, so i did not know much about the writer.
Overall, i found this book to be entertaining. It kept me guessing and wondering. The plot was predictable, you kinda knew from the start how it would all end, but i was still surprised by some aspects. Not knowing if we could trust the characters was enjoyable and made the book much more interesting. The main character was a bit annoying and she made some stupid choices. Her best friend was awful, i wanted her to stop talking. how could Britt be friend with her?
The setting was great. loved the “stuck on the mountain in the middle of a snow storm” vibe. It adds a lot to the plot. The story was okay. There were a few slow parts that i wanted to skipped. All those flashbacks of her love story with Calvin were a bit boring. I found the ending a little bit to cliché for my taste but it could’ve been worst.

Black Ice was a fun ride, not flawless, but still interesting to read.

Black Ice : 3.5/5
