Book Review: Wicked

Wicked (A Wicked Saga #1) 
By Jennifer L Armentrout 

Wicked (A Wicked Saga, #1)Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

Review
Something Wicked comes to New Orleans, 
The secret Order must do everything to protect the humans from otherworldly supernaturals but when the numbers of death within the Order increase it becomes a concern. 

Ivy wished she was a normal girl but she's not, she must fight to protect but would a new member of the Order drive her to distraction?
The clock is ticking, Ivy and Ren must quick be on their feet, find the gates and stop it from getting it open and they might have to face a few Faes and Ancients here and there.

I truly LOVE this book! There was a lot of Holy CATNIP moments in that book which means JLA have done her job right.

Can you hear me PURR really loud?
SassyCat's Books Review gives Wicked a PURRRFECT MEOWY  book


MEOW . . .  MEOW . . . MEOW 
This is the first book that I've read of 2015! and I'm glad I picked Wicked, holy catnip I'm almost done with it in two days! 

Ivy Morgan wishes that she was just an average college girl but she's not, she a part of an secret society call the Order. They protect the humans from supernatural beings nd hunt down the supernatural. Ivy been doing this for a few years now but the truth is her past still haunts her.

Ivy's night shift should have been just a regular stake and go but the Fae that she ran into wasn't an ordinary Fae, completely taken aback she knew that she was in more danger right at that very moment even when the Fae pulled a gun at her and was ready to shoot. Trying to get back to the Order before she bled out seems to be an impossible task but then before slipping into unconsciousness she saw the most beautiful green eyes she's ever saw.

Meet Ren Owens, the sexy green eyes guy that just transfer to New Orleans Order to help solve why so many members of the orders are being killed and what is stirring in New Orleans. Turns out Ren has his own little secrets to why he would be in New Orleans and what he's searching for. But the one thing he knows is that Ivy drive him madly crazy in love and he's willing to do anything to get that little taste of sweetness.

What I LOVE about Wicked is that both Ivy and Ren have the hots for each other right in the very beginning, there was that instant chemstriy. I love Ren's references in Disney girls although its a little odd that an young adult guy watches Disney movies and find all the princesses equally attractive.

Also Ren falls under my newly book boyfriend categories PUUURRRRR. 

Tink is another favorite of mine, I sort of want one but I would have to password protect everything and make sure that he doesn't hack into every account I own. I might get him to cut down on the sugar since he's too hyper anyway.

The characters are quite refreshing! And I love the fact that Wicked is NA which makes me a little bit more willing to dive into NA books but I'm still working on reading more NA.

So I'm ready for some more Wicked things to happen in New Orleans and especially after that little cliffhanger JLA have left us in the end of Wicked.  I wonder what will happen in TORN, will that little Cliffhanger be reveal or will something much darker come thy way into New Orleans.

  1. I heard a lot of great things about this book, might have to add it to my to-read pile, it's been a while since I last read a JLA book. Although I can't help feeling confused by that cover every time, as I keep thinking it has somethign to dow ith water or the sea, instead of fae. And everyone mentions Tink in their reviews, I am really curious about him.
    I think NA can be a bit of a hit or miss, there are some really good books in the age category, but also soem rpedictable ones which all sort of follow the same plot. I do like seeing different genres NA being published more nowadays and not only contemporary romances.

    1. JLA have said to her publisher that she wanted an underwater cover for awhile now, and yes even though it has nothing to do with Fae or what the book is truly about its still pretty. OH when you do get a chance to read Wicked you will love Tink :-)
