Frozen was those book you MUST pick up if you love Mel and her Blue Bloods series. In Frozen, she's teaming up with her husband to deliver a thrilling, riveting, and action - packed novel. She's back and Frozen was amazing!
In Frozen we meet kick ass, blackjack dealer Natasha Kestal with dreams of going into the Blue. The Blue means a rich life, one where she doesn't have to live on a day to day basis earning money with blackjack. But she's also hiding a deep secret one she doesn't even know herself. I really loved Nat! She was so assertive and moving you really get into her character and I liked watching her grow throughout the novel. She also meets no good Ryan Wesson whom she has to trust to go to the Blue. The romance aspect of Frozen was great. It wasn't that mushy love stuff, but it was great seeing that tension between them.
The action action action and action! The action part of the book was great. Mel finally grows aways from her vampires and does some kick ass scenes throught the book. I loved seeing them come alive in my head! It was the perfect balance of Mel's writing with her husband's more mature writing. Having good writing = strong characters and plot line, which was what made Frozen shined. The cast of characters are great with different personalities you get the gist of what's more to come :)
Fist pump and claps
I have to say this was my second time atempting Frozen and I made it through! The first time around I was honeslty second guessing Mel and the book, but the second time I really want to like it and I did! I cannot wait to see how Mel writes the next book in this series and I'm crossing my fingers for it to be better than the first.
I was like what again?
Frozen is a MUST READ for any fan of Mel, Blue Blood series, or looking for something to spice up their current reads. I really liked it and I cannot wait for anything else Mel has in store!
