Review: Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Wicked (Wicked Trilogy,#1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: YA/NA Paranormal Romance


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.

"Since you asked nicely, I won't do it again, but you can call me whatever you want."
"Are you hitting on me?" Shocked, I shook my head. "Are you for real?"
"My momma probably thinks I'm real.  (...) You're also sitting on me, and sweetness, if you slide about an inch or so down, things are going to get real awkward."
Holy shit.. "Or fun,"

YES!! Ladies, meet Ren Owens my new wicked addiction from the Armentrout-factory!
I don't know what she's doing or how, whether it's now Ren, Roth, Zayne or my favorite alien ever, Daemon, she's making me fall FAST and HARD for them. You've to know I'm normally not a big fan of YA romance and rarely pick up a book that states YA. But with Jennifer's YA paranormal books, I have no idea what it is, but I can't read them fast enough. I adore her young, sassy and very charismatic characters combined with an intriguing story.

Her female characters are not weak, they've spunk and say what's up; so does Ivy Morgan. She's no quiet mouse, she's a fighter who stands her ground even when smexy Ren Owen makes her inside squirm with his delicious dimples, smile and body. 
She vowed her life to work for the Order - as have her parents before - fighting against otherwordly enemies, the faes. All went well until one night when she gets badly hurt by an ancient fae and Ren, the new one in the Order, finds her bleeding on the steps. 

Ren is on a special mission and he's not exactly working for the Order but he's definitely working on something....when denying gets harder by the minute because Ren and Ivy spend a lot of 'work' time together, working to get in Ivy's pants and vise versa is as well on the agenda LOL.

"And why do you've have to be so grabby? Jesus."
"I like the way you feel against me," he said.

"You're going to have to get to know me better before you taste my cake."
"Was that an invitation? Because I'm willing to get to know you in any way possible if that means I gt to taste your cake."

Uhm yeah... what was I about to write? 
Oh yeah, I enjoyed this book tremendously. I liked the lighthearted humor, the snarky back and forth comments, the supernatural story-line, and of course the characters themselves. This is a fun page-turner with a sweet love story developing on the side and with Jennifer's famous plot twists and turns. I didn't see the ending coming and can honestly say the first thing I'll click this summer is TORN, book 2 in the series. 

If you enjoy YA paranormal romance with less drama, but some steamy scenes, great surprises in the plot, a plot that is more than a page turner then I highly suggest this new PNR series.
Oh and before I forget, hands down, TINK is by far my favorite side-character ever! I laughed so hard I had tears....such a funny little fellow - you will love him!

"Tell me yes," he ordered huskily. "Tell me yes and I'll do whatever you want. Anything you want. Just let me do this."
