White Heat Review

Filed Under: Book Related

I had the hardest time getting into White Heat.[1]

I don’t know if it was Novak’s voice or if it was just me being all weird because I’m in such a funk right now. Maybe I just wasn’t ready to switch gears to something that wasn’t YA?


After the first few pages, I was hooked.

The book was so freakin’ fast paced I kept turning the page.

Here’s the synopsis cause you know I’m not good at that:

White Heat is the first book in Brenda Novak’s new Department 6 Hired Guns trilogy.

Nate Ferrentino and Rachel Jessop are operatives for Department 6, a private security company, and they’re going undercover to expose a new and dangerous cult.

This group has taken up residence in the Arizona desert, in a ghost town called Paradise. Members worship at the feet—and in the bed–of its charismatic leader, Ethan Wycliff. On his orders, they tried to stone a woman to death. And they’re implicated in the disappearance of a teenage girl.

To expose the Church of the Covenant, with its arcane rituals and debauched practices, Nate and Rachel must pretend to be married. That’s the only way they can get in—but being Nate’s “wife” is the last thing Rachel wants. She and Nate have a one-night history that’s just an embarrassment to her now. But they don’t have a choice. Wycliff has to be stopped.

Was it a good book? Yeah it was a good book.

Was it a bit complicated with the two different view points between Rachel and Nate? Maybe.

But I liked it. It was a fast read. It was a good plot. Yeah. I liked it.

I’m ready for the second one…and the third one.
