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 ...more
It's about secret goal of the Elite. They hunt down halflings - potential parents of "apocalyptic babies", but why in hell nobody suggested to make halflings sterile?? Modern medicine can do this!I know it's cruel, but not that cruel as just killing them I hoped that maybe Ivy thinks about this and then Ren gives her some answer why it's impossible.. But it seems to me that nobody really even suggested this (hide spoiler)]
B-But…I usually love Jennifer L. Armentrout’s work! Her characters always feel like they could just jump off the page and stand before you, and her writing always flows perfectly with the story and pacing. Yet, this did not work for me. I had déjà vu sensations at many points into the novel, as if I’ve read this kind of story many times before, NA and its oh-so-imminent aspects aside. It actually felt like the author inspired some of her story’s constituents from The Hollows, Fever and the Nig ...more
Where does she come up with this stuff?? I need to dive into her mind for a day to steal some plots, seriously.
I've read a lot of fae stories and even written one myself, but Jen's take on the fae? So fun. Just awesome.
And Tink might be my favorite character ever, hands down - I got the crazy giggles in some of his scenes.
So good! I need the sequel now!!
Wicked is a hot romance set in a world where supernatural creatures exist, and the lovers must put their lives on the line to keep the people of New Orleans safe. The setting is vivid, the characters endearing, and there is a perfect balance of danger and beauty.
“You gave Tink a scarf. Tink is free!" He flew out into the hallway like a little cracked-out fairy, screeching, "Tink is freeeeee!”
Ivy Morgan is a red headed Fae hunter who lives in New Orleans. She is a member of The Order protecting us humans from the lurking Fae. Ivy meets Ren Owens who is new to the area and this chapter of The Order from Colorado. They slowly fall in love all the while they are working together trying to figure out what is going on with Ancients and their plan to use the gateways to enter our world.
The writing just didn’t measure up to the Lux Series ...more
“I'm a lot of things, but today I'm your fucking saving grace.”
This one was a nice surprise! After seeing a handful of negative reviews on this one, I went into it with lowered expectations. I came out of this reading experience a very happy girl! And after 2 previous books I DNF'd, I need this gem of a story.
First off, this book is very much New Adult genre, so don't go into it thinking it's YA. The fact that in Chapter 1 the MC is discussing getting laid and orgasms is ...more
Really reminded me of what the shadowhunters do but in this case they're hunting Fae and ancients.. not demons, in my opinion they're both evil creatures that give people headaches.
The entire story was fascinating and just overall kickass awesome which made it very hard for me to set it down.
As expected, Ivy and Ren are amazing and I'm already shipping them but my other favorite would seriously have to be Tink. His personality and views regarding the world arou ...more

New Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout??
Another reason for my excitement...
Ren Owens is six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm.
Can't wait!! ...more
Sweat dotted my brow. Tendrils of red hair clung to my neck. My legs felt like I’d been sitting in a sauna. I was pretty sure there was a waterfall of sweat coursing between my breasts, and that alone put my mood somewhere between slapping someone and pushing them in front of a trolley.
It was so hot and sticky humid that I was seriously beginning to believe that New Orleans was one of the seven circles of hell and the outdoor seating area of the Palace Café was the gateway. Or the wai ...more
Was it enjoyable? Yeah. Was it original? Nope.
(view spoiler)[The ending was too obvious. And as much as liked Ivy she was sometimes naive. Seriously, I was waiting for Val to betray her since I knew there was a traitor. Even before then maybe. The traitor is always close to the protagonist in Jennifer L. Armentrout's books.
And wasn't she curious enough to test her blood? I think she knew it deep down, but she didn't want to admit it.
I expected Ren to be keeping some serious secret, bu
Even though I love Jennifer L. Armentrout and I adore or at least like all of her books , I was quite anxious going into this one. Excited, but anxious. There is always the chance that you won't like a book that much, even, no ESPECIALLY, if you love the author.
Wicked sounded interesting, but not that promising.
So, now I'm even happier to be able to tell you: I absolutely loved this ...more
Not even bothering with a long review.
Fucking awful. I could tell what would happen and in what order after 50 pages and oh-wow, it happened exactly like that. Damn, that was beyond boring.
Ivy's insta-lust and Ren's oh-so-clever remarks. It was nice with Damon, you know? It was tolerable in Sentinel, but pulling off the same shit in a third series? No. Just no.
And then the plot twists and Ivy's brilliant ideas?
The only character I liked was Merle. And even she w ...more
Except maybe---owls. I don't think even she could change my mind about owls. And yes, they totally count as paranormal.
WICKED is not your average Fae story but it has all the elements I have come to expect and love in a JLA book; strong characters, witty banter, a great story and face fanning roma ...more
This one was really wicked. Like really wicked and naughty. I guess maybe because it was new-adult and not young-adult like her previous paranormal works. Nonetheless, I liked it because it was action-packed and the storyline was such tha ...more
I think I set my expectations too high. I've had Wicked on my to be read list for yonky donks but never got around to reading it. Saw it on audio, and decided to give it a try. I think the biggest problem was that I would be completely distracted by...stuff, and realise I've missed the last few minutes of whatever the heck had happened. It didn't take me any longer to listen but that was because I decided to not go back and hope for the best. Maybe I should have gone back...
I didn ...more
Jennifer L. Armentrout writes a wonderful paranormal romance with twists and turns along the way. With the New Orleans setting and the lively characters this book will have you engaged from start to finish.
Classic JLA. I kind of got hints from The Dark Elements Series and some from The Covenant Series and even some from The Lux Series. With the heroine being a fighter against some sort of evil and a love interest or two. There’s always some type of halfl ...more
So... I started reading Wicked thinking this would be the book I vote for on goodreads Choice Awards 2015. But nope, not me. This book feels like Karen Marie Moning's Fever ugly stepsister. I tried telling myself it's me and not the book. But that's not true. Everything seems forced and underdeveloped in Wicked.
Ok, what's the book about? Faeries, evil faeries, and the Order, a secret group of people trained to hunt them down and kill them.
He is gorgeous. He is snarky. He is straight forward about his attraction to Ivy. He is so sexy as he's alwa ...more
I, for the most part, love JLA....I did not love this one. I couldn't connect with the characters and it seemed lacking. It got better near the end....the ending makes me actually want to read the sequel when it comes out...but only because I want to see how it turns out...not for any love for the characters.

(...) "How would I know? But she kind of looks like that chick from the movie Brave. You know, the one with the really curly red hair."
What. In. The. Hell.
"She's got really pretty blue eyes, though."
Though. Though? As if that somehow made up for the fact that I had frizzy red hair like a Disney character.

First things first. This was my second fae book, the first being Dark Fever, which I rated one or two stars if I'm recollecting it correctly. So, yeah, fae are not usually my cup of tea. Armentrout, though, has a way of transforming every topic, creature, and event into read-worthy material. So, here we go.
The worldbuilding didn't really hit me like innovative or over-the-top o ...more
But then – poof! Nasty plotline did bite me back. *sighs*

I enjoyed this more than I was expecting I would!
It was rather exciting, albeit predictable. I will most definitely be reading the next one because you can't just present me with that ending at 12:30 a.m. and expect me to stop reading!
Ivy is a member of The Order (creative), a group of people who are trained to be kick-ass in order to kill fae. The fae are little patoots: they drain humans of life in order to stay immortal. They live in the Otherworld (also creative), but they come to the mo ...more

He caught it, clutching it to his chest as he flew into the air. "You gave Tink a scarf. Tink is free!" He flew out into the hallway like a little cracked-out fairy, screeching, "Tink is freeeeee!"
Ren looked at me. "What the actual f**k?"
I sighed. "He's obsessed with Harry Potter. I'm sorry."
Tink darted back into the room, holding the scarf to his bare chest. "There is no reason to apologize when it comes to Harry Potter."
"You do remember what happened to Dobby, right?" I said.
"S**t." Tink's eyes widened and he dropped the scarf.”
