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.
The steamy scenes did not disappoint! I knew they would be though since this author has never let me down before! I always love the hate to love romances (no matter how often they’re used) so I could tell as I started reading this one that it would be good. It definitely helped with my new adult craving that I was having.
I loved the little brownie / the roommate! His name was Tink and he was hilarious! I loved how he was this teeny little fae guy but he had such a big personality. I’m looking forward to seeing if he plays a bigger role in the next books.
I liked the idea that the characters in this book were similar to vampire hunters except they hunted the fae. I’m always interested in reading about the fae but I was slightly disappointed there wasn’t much folklore in this book. Maybe the next one?
Besides all that, this was just an easy book to fall into which made it easy to like.
This probably doesn’t deserve the higher rating that I gave it because it was very predictable and not very original at all. There were so many YA book tropes in here that it read like a YA book only with lots of sex. (Or sexual tension in this case really.) I wish that there had been something a little more original in this story but for whatever reason I still enjoyed reading it. If you like your books really original then probably skip this one.
I’d recommend this to anyone who doesn’t mind reading some typical YA book tropes but wants something a bit older. It was nothing special but it was still really fun to read! I would still recommend it even though the events that took place were pretty predictable.
While not quite a must read, it was still a really fun book to fill my spare time with. I’ll be continuing on with the series for sure!
