ARC Review: Falling for the Ice Queen by Cynthia Eden
Memphis Camden isn’t a nice guy. He’s big, dangerous, and has an extremely low tolerance for BS. A former bounty hunter, Memphis now has a deadly new target…a serial killer. Memphis has been tracking the guy for months, and he may just have found the way to drag the monster into the light. In order to accomplish his mission, he’s going to need help from an unlikely ally…
She’s elegant, poised, and a beautiful society queen.
Eliza Robinson doesn’t talk about her past. She tried going to the cops—long ago—but they never caught the man responsible for her abduction, and her powerful family made sure to bury every detail about that night. Now, she spends her days dodging the stiff guards her family keeps sending her way. Until someone very unusual steps into her path.
He’s not like the others. He’s fierce, ruggedly sexy, and more than a little uncivilized…
At first, Eliza thinks that Memphis is a new bodyguard. The attraction she feels for him is white-hot, stunning in its intensity, and it completely disrupts her carefully ordered life. But Memphis isn’t suddenly close to her because he’s on her parents’ payroll.
Memphis belongs to a group of cold case solvers called the Ice Breakers, and for his latest mission? He’s hunting the man who once turned Eliza’s world into a nightmare. Memphis wants her help because she is the only one who ever escaped from the monster. What Memphis doesn’t know…is that the monster has been stalking Eliza ever since she fled from him…
They are complete opposites.
The only rules that Memphis follows are the ones that he makes. He hits life full-force, with no apologies. Eliza is reserved, careful in all that she does, and always on her guard. They shouldn’t want each other so badly, but they do. Their attraction won’t be denied, and their sudden, forced proximity just throws them closer to the edge of desire.
Eliza is determined to help Memphis, and she’ll take any risk to end the nightmare that has haunted her. But with every moment that passes, the danger deepens around her, and soon Memphis realizes that closing the latest case isn’t his top priority. Protecting Eliza, making sure that she’s safe—that is his only goal. Because the refined and cautious Eliza may have just stolen his heart…
As with all of Cynthia Eden's books, I enjoyed Falling for the Ice Queen. It has a very 'knight in shining armor' feel to it. Happily, for Eliza, she does have a knight to come and help her figure out what happened to her all those years ago.
Memphis is one of those people that is a dog with a bone. Once he's locked onto something there is no stopping him.
I think that's one of the things I like most about him. He's not someone that will give up when the going gets bad. Eliza needs someone like that in her corner. She's been through hell and back only to have no one really believe her other than her father and brother. That is until Memphis came into her life. He not only believes her, but he also wants to help her figure out what happened to her and stop the person from killing people.
I very much enjoyed Eliza and Memphis' story. They are good together. Eliza is a really nice person that needs someone in her corner that will always be there for her no matter what or who tries to get in their way.
In the same way that Eliza needs someone on her side, Memphis needs someone to just love him. I think before Eliza Memphis only really lived for the hunt. He lost himself in a world that was full of bad people and darkness but Eliza brings the light into his life.
They both are a good balance of light and dark. They will bring what the other needs to their relationship. They are stronger for being with each other. Falling for the Ice Queen is non-stop action with tons of romance. You won't want to put it down until you know who's doing what. You'll also enjoy meeting Memphis' brothers whose story is coming soon.
Great story and always I want more from her. Have any of you read her? It's best to read this series in order because it will help you understand parts of this story better and give it depth. Not to worry there is only one book before this one.
