I’m paying bills, making powerful enemies, and collecting magical lovers. You know; everyday stuff.

I’m not just a tarot reader… my birth right means I’m the best fortune teller you’ll ever meet, too bad I never listen my own advice.

My name is Georgette, but only my witchy mother gets to call me that. As the child of a witch and a wolf there’s both consequences and amazing

Eh, very annoying and dense MC

Ugh, this book was barely tolerable.
- The abilities the characters have are powerful but not in a chosen one sort of way. They are higher than their peers but its not a blow out. The conflict is believable because the foes are clever, and are on equal footing.
- The relationship bases were fun and have potential. I have a feeling they may go off the rails, but in this book I liked who was involved and into who.

First of all, I was 100% intrigued when I saw the FF note in the blurb because I honestly can't find enough RH authors that give it a try to provide quality FF relationships. I'm also a fan of MM, so this was immediately a winning combo. I will say this- I was a tiny bit hesitant when I saw the note about the FMC being a hybrid because sometimes I feel like those series where the FMC is a little bit of this supernatural thing and a little bit of this odd thing wind up giving me this situation wh ...more

"A Little Wicked" by A J Merlin is an absolute delight. In other words "a wicked pleasure".
It was an exciting and witty read, written with a mix of drama, romance, hatred, revenge, fear and fun.
"A Little Wicked" is the first book in the "Wicked Fortunes" series. It is a perfect start to the series.
It revolves around Georgette, who is the daughter of a witch and a wolf. She has to face consequences because of it, b

A.j Merlin is a new to me author and I gotta say this was a surprise. I had no idea what it was about, went in completely blind and I liked it.
I think the biggest thing to stand out for me with this book is that, it doesn’t follow norms and is fresh and original. In RH you typically don’t see FF at all so this was intriguing. If your looking for an out of the box read this is definitely it. Forget about one lane this jumped so many and it weaves together seamlessly in this book.

Confusing & kind of annoying

So far she's a little awkward for a witch of her age. 8+ years @ her particular gift/core strength as a witch. Practicing battle strategies, etc. Stating her ward charm would hold longer than others but not true.
Her cousin needs saving by this awkward weakish witch yet soon after said rescue, it's said that the cousin is a strong dominant elemental that supposedly can obliterate the coven & cemetery in which she had been held captive against her will after being kidn

*Edited review to include series thought at the end*

Hot damn! Was NOT expecting that! Especially after how the story was developing. For me, and the amount of skimming I did in the latter quarter of the book, I was surprised that the ending would be such a huge pull to drag me from a 3-star-review into a 4!

I was a bit unsure about A Little Wicked at first, as I came to this story by accident. I’m not a fan of reverse harem (the main female having multiple partners at once) & I generally avoid them. And it didn’t take long to work out that A Little Wicked falls into this category. But this book really surprised me! I ended up really enjoying it (with only a little skimming necessary). It was a fun story that kept my attention from start to finish.

What I will say though is that this isn't even vague

Interesting and refreshing elements to this paranormal book, the main character Georgette is not the typical heroine for this type of story, we get introduced to all the world she lives in and there is so much more you get to discover. This is an RH story where the main character is bisexual, giving it an original side to the story, we get a great plot to follow as well as supernatural characters.

This was such an interesting read! You’re dropped right into the action with George, our FMC, as she’s looking for her cousin in New Orleans. Quickly learning that things are far more dangerous than she realizes, George teams up with some sexy preternaturals (a vampire, a lich, and a hellhound) to not only save her cousin, but in the end, them as well. Along the way we find out that George, in addition to being a special kind of witch, has another secret up her sleeve that adds an extra layer of ...more

This is a step away from what I was expecting when I started this book (in a good way!) – George, our sassy heroine, is the kind of vibrant and bold heroine I normally associate with a paranormal RH, but instead of being the usual all-powerful being who saves the day and kisses the pretty boys, she’s completely out of her depth and working mostly on good intentions. One of the best things is that she’s openly bisexual, so when she shows romantic interest in a female character it’s in line with h ...more

Okay, so this was another new author to me and it was a genre and trope of book that I hadn't read before. This book is also based on a polyamorous relationship again not something I have read before.

The book starts with the main female character George a.k.a Georgette but only her mother calls her that. She is a tarot witch from an ancient and powerful line of summoner witches. There hasn't been a summoner in the family for years until George. She is feisty and stubborn at times but she is als

Wow such an action packed start to the book, I loved it.
It reminded me of the originals tv series , with the witches and vampires of New Orleans , the conflict between witches and an in charge vampire.
It has everything supernatural in it that you could ever dream of.
This books puts a whole new spin on witches, shifters and vampires and many many more.
I love Merric, he’s so mysterious and I was not expecting him to change so much I’m shocked. I can’t wait to find out more.

Firstly, it’s got witches and tarot so I was already pumped for this book. Then you introduce shifters, vamps and weird other creatures? I’m double down for this book.

This was nostalgia heaven. All I could think was new-gen Sookie Stackhouse, with the FMC George (Georgette to ONLY her mum) being a sassy, powerful but not very confident in it, witchy Sookie. Was there an Eric? Nope but even better, we get 3!!!! for the price of one! You’re going to LOVE Cian, Indra and Akiva. They’re a vamp, shif

What a fresh new take on a prn rh series. It is a fast and fun read (less than a day). It had a little of everything to make you fall in love with the book. The main female character George (Gerogette) is not your typical badass fmc. However, her journey is one of growth which I liked to see. Her love interest and fun explorations was fun to read.

Couldn't finish this, I don't even think I made it halfway through. The MC was a combination of so many rare things and yet, she's just so ... bland. I couldn't figure out what she was thinking and we were in her head the whole time. She's supposed to be so close to this cousin that she drops everything and drives over right away because of a creepy text but she also doesn't know the roots this same cousin has in her city? She's supposed to be powerful but her so-called long-lasting personal war ...more

I wasn’t too sure what to expect from A Little Wicked, but I’m so glad I picked it up. It’s a quirky reverse harem story that had me reading for more.

George is a hybrid and along with that comes extremely rare powers. When she gets a distress call from her cousin in New Orleans, she rushes there to help her out. While there she meets some pretty interesting and mysterious people, as well as getting sucked into a rebellion.

I loved all the unique shifters in the story, ones you don’t normally see

A Little Wicked is the first book in the Wicked Fortunes Series by A.J. Merlin. It follows a summoner named George who is trying to navigate her life after she moves to New Orleans after saving her cousin from danger.

This was a really fun and interesting book. I liked George and as the series progresses I really hope that she starts believing in herself a lot more. I really enjoyed watching her powers evolve and I can’t wait to see if they will become more powerful. My favourite characters were

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

This is a captivating start to a new series that had me completely hooked once the story got going. The FMC is Georgette a witch (with some really cook powers I must say) that has to go rescue her cousin when she disappears. Not sure how to find her she starts looking into things once she arrives only to run across three very sexy men that she has to team up with in order to save her. This leads to quite

I enjoyed this for the most part but at times our Mc was annoying with the tstl stuff she pulls and the way she let herself be treated as a sad little 5 year old.

And man, why don't you research more about powers and possibilities, seems like a good way to get dead but oh well.

I liked the fox, he seems like a proper c*nt and he owns it, and I liked Yuna, the troublesome threesome less so.

If I could I would give 10 stars

This was an amazing read and made me think of a manga or anime. Especially Merric and his powers and Yuna and her stoicness and penchant for just showing up out of nowhere. Sometimes that type of anime flavoring doesn’t mesh well in a story (I’m wording this terribly) but it works for this one and gosh it was an adventure. I liked all of George’s men and woman and I loved their dynamic. I can’t wait for the next book.

Incredible story by AJ Merlin. George is an amazing FMC, full of sass, awkwardness and intense magic. Her group of unlikely friends are a riot and so lovely (although there were stages i wanted to shake some sense into the men). A little wicked is a funny, magical, and action packed story with plenty of steam! Very well written, no cliff hanger but I am excited to see what is going to happen next.
Michelle The Outgoing Bookworm
What a quirky, paranormal book!

Pleasantly surprised by this story that features a witches, hybrids, vampires, kitsunes, and many other creatures that are intriguing.

George is a witch-werewolf hybrid who is strong but yet clumsy and endearing as the FMC. Her interactions with Cian, Indra, and Akiva are so hot and steamy as well as hilarious. This budding RH is definitely one to watch. And with the possibility of more entering - Yuna and Merric - it looks like things will get very interesting.

I love love loved this series! I have become so attached to these characters throughout series that when I wasn't reading it still felt like I needed to check in on their progress lol. I really enjoyed the few twists and turns thrown into the story line and it was really nice to see it be about more than just the sex... although those scenes were pretty great too! Definitely will be following this author and I'm hoping to find that they keep writing on this series! ...more

There is no other book like A Little Wicked. I loved every second of this sort of slow burn story. There are monster galore. Everything from witches, to vampire, to werewolves, and Kitsunes.

I have to admit, I had a soft spot for the Kitsune.

This is the first book in a series and the first book I’ve read by Merlin. I’ll have to pick up the rest of this series for sure. It’s a reverse harem book with supernatural beings and mature scenes.

I enjoyed my time reading A Little Wicked. There were many moments where I couldn't stop reading to see how everything turned out. The world was filled with great characters that you care about and want to know more about as you go through. The relationships that were formed between the main group and seeing how they develop was fun to read. ...more

This book is fantastic. The balance between mayhem, love, drama, amd steam is perfect. All the characters are well thought out and have their own voice that is easily distinguishable from eachother. I love the way the book eases into a poly setting, and I cant wait to see how George's relationships all form! This book is definitely a 10/10 will read again. Fantastic author. ...more

Not for me

Ok, the storyline was a good thought. I however think maybe the book was too short and you were not able to get invested or even het to know the characters to truly enjoy any of them. It was fast burn but it felt off. It was too rushed and nothing felt right about any of it. It had potential. I got through this one but will not be reading further.
