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. 

This book sounded just as good as her previous books so I new I would be onto a winner with this one and I wasn't far wrong.

I kind of like the cover it was one of my favourites of new release books but for me there wasn't that many that I adored. I like the colours especially that red as it really does stand out. I can kind of see the characters in these models but I don't see that location in the book which I was a little disappointed at.

Fae books are a bit of a hit or miss for me and this was thankfully a hit. The beginning was a little hard to get into but it wasn't long before I started to enjoy this book. I think the reason why I found it hard to get into at the beginning was because it was a little confusing the way in which the fae sounded like they where vampires. The romance was a slow build up but I loved it that way and I loved Ivy and Ren together they where so cute. So much happened in during this book that it was easy to read it I did feel like the battle towards the end was a little rushed. I loved the twists and turns throughout the book with the biggest twist I didn't see coming to end the book with. I am really excited to continue on with this series especially with the way in which this ended.

The characters where well written as I was easily able to like them all. Ivy was a strong, independent female character which was surprising she was as strong as what she was after all the blows she was dealt throughout her life. She did have moments where I didn't want to like her but in the end it's hard not to like her and feel sorry for her. I loved Ren he was one of the funniest characters in this book but he also had a sensitive side to him making it hard not to love him. Tink was also one of the funniest characters I thought at times he stole the shine of the main characters.

Overall a great start to what I hope will be a great series, bring on Torn is all I can say.
