Goodreads Synopsis:
Sometimes danger is hard to see... until it’s too late. 

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

My Thoughts:
Black Ice was absolutely riveting. As the author of such a famous YA series as Hush Hush, I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to write something so completely different. We all know that fans are going to compare Black Ice to that series and I beg of you DO NOT go into reading this book thinking that it will be anything like those books because it will not be. 

It is a fantastic thriller that is gripping and edgy. The plot keeps twisting and turning and just when I thought I had it all figured out... well lets just say I did not. Becca throws us for a loop over and over again and will keep you guessing. 

The character dynamics were phenomenal and the backdrop and setting that Becca gives us makes you feel like you are trapped on that mountain with them.  And of course there is a fantastic love story. Just not what you might be expecting. 

Nothing is what it seems in Black Ice
