Wicked by Jennifer Armentrout

Goodreads Summary:
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:
YES! Armentrout wrote a book about the Fae!! Ivy is your average Fae killing college girl. She hasn't had a normal life. Her family was killed by the creatures she is sworn to kill. Fae are not easy opponents either. Her life is on the line every time she is hunting. Especially now when Ivy is faced with an adversary so dangerous, she doesn't stand a chance. Their is a group of the Order in New Orleans who she has friends in. Even though you aren't suppose to get that close due to the fact that people die young. So sad! Then she meets the super sexy and suave Ren. He is the definition of distraction. Which in that kind of life is not a good thing. Especially after losing the love of her life once already. Can Ivy's heart stand another go around? Can the evil that has now been unleashed be stopped or are they all destined to die?

I would have to say that my favorite character was Tink. Seriously, where can I get one of him! He was funny and awesome and therefore wins favorite character. Especially, when he tries to protect Ivy when Ren breaks in. LOVE HIM!

Ivy hasn't had it easy in her love life. After the heart break she has suffered she is not sure she will recover from it. I don't blame her. You first love always leaves a mark. She just has a bigger scar then most of us. Ren does respect that too. To an extent. It is incredibly hard for Ivy too. She is insanely attracted to Ren. I don't blame her he is like oozing sex and I'm not sure how she can keep her hands off him! They do have some pretty hot moments...well...insanely hot. I loved reading about their relationship! 

I really enjoyed this book. Armentrout has such a wide variety of books out there. This was just another great start to yet another series. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. If your a fan of the Fae then this one is for you!
