OK. Words. I need to use my words. But I don't know what to say! Can I just say that I absolutely LOVED this and leave it at that??

I am so happy that JLA is doing an NA paranormal series because I was in desperate need of one. And being JLA I knew it would awesome. And my god was it! Wicked was...wicked! Lol. There is no other word to describe it. It was everything I was hoping for and more.
As can be expected from JLA, the heroine was bad-ass! Ivy was tough, smart, fun, and I just loved her. And in true JLA fashion she was so snarky! I loved all the Disney references she made. And I want her roommate. Tink was...oh lord that dude was brilliant! I laughed so much at the stuff he came out with! Definitely one of the shining stars of the book lol! I can't wait for more from him in Torn.
Another shining star was Ren. Oh Ren *swoon* JLA really knows how to write em. There was no shortage of smexy times to be had between these two. You might need a fan while reading this one ladies. Ren is HOT! ;)

On top of a stellar cast of characters, the story-line itself was addictive. I have always been fascinated with stories centered around Fey and the direction JLA took with them was a great twist on what I have previously read. I loved learning about all the lore. I especially loved the setting of New Orleans. I have always wanted to go there but this book just cemented my desire even more. I want to visit all the places mentioned and I definitely want to try a beignet. The book is also action-packed and I was on the edge of seat, with a death grip on my kindle so many times. My heart was racing and I just could not get enough. I finished the whole thing in like a day. JLA's writing is superb and I felt like I was actually in the book, experience everything as Ivy experiences it. And that ending?? Omg cliffhanger alert!! How long do I have to wait for Torn because I need it now!! Not fair Jennifer!

This book was just all kinds of awesome. A kick-ass and snarky leading lady, a drool worthy love interest, and a story-line that will leave you breathless. This is one book not to be missed! Bring on book #2!
