Book Review: Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Synopsis from GoodReads:

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.

My Review:

No matter how much I enjoyed this book, which I really did, because I never really enjoy books with the main focal point being the Fae. But I knew from the start how this was going to end, even without spoilers. It was very common sense.
Yet I would still re-read this book again because I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn’t put it down!

Ivy I absolutely love, she’s so brave and fierce, and I love that according to Ren she looks like Merida! But I like that she’s been through hell and back, lost everyone that means something to her, had things hidden from her knowledge and now the while bomb has been dropped in her life. The poor girl is all I can say.

Ren on the other hand I didn’t know whether I wanted to punch it hug at times. Though his swearing didn’t fit him very well and I just wanted to crawl into the book and give him a whack over the head for it. But I love how he treats Ivy, with respect and passion. In spite of the swearing, men should take note!

Tink. I want a Tink! He can bake, loves Harry Potter and lives on Amazon! Not to mention he’s like an adorable, yet sassy little cherub!

I would recommend this book; the story flows really well, lots of twists, turns and secrets falling left, right and centre. There is a lovely slow building romance, and probably what some would call a bombshell at the end. (Except me since I kept saying out loud to myself what was going to happen!)
I look forward to reading Torn; I want to see how this pans out with Ren now!

My Rating:

***** 5/5 stars
