I listened to the audiobook of this on in celebration of JLA getting a movie deal for it!

Though her Warden books remain my favorite, Wicked is a classic New Adult JLA story. Fast paced, fun, and sexy. I love anything set in New Orleans as well as anything involving the Fae, so Wicked promised to be something I would like. Ivy and Ren made for a great team and a lot of angst. While Ivy was a bit naive for my tastes, I have no doubt she will develop into even more of a capable character in the next books. Lots of action coupled with smoldering romance, I enjoyed the first book in this series and am especially looking forward to its film adaptation.

GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: 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 losteverythingat 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.
