“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. ”

Wow. Jen has done it again. I love everything that Jen writes even though I haven’t read all of her books. She is such a talented writer.
This book grabbed me in and made me emotional. And like with all Jen series it takes forever for the main couple to kiss. I was literally praying they would kiss. As I described to Tay, “I can literally feel the sexual tension coming off the pages.” And it’s true, I could.
Jen is just a pro at making drool worthy guys and relatable, but badass girls. Ren is arrogant, but very charming. He has a past and as the book goes on you get to know that and his real feelings for Ivy. Ivy is badass and super relatable. And as Ren points out is much like Merida from Brave with her fiery red hair and temper. She also has a past and the two of them just may be able to help each other.
And Tink her little brownie side kick is great and made me laugh throughout the book. Jen makes references to Supernatural, Harry Potter, Twilight, and One Direction. So that makes her so much better.
I give this book a 10 out of 10. It’s so good and it just pulls you in. I recommend this book to 16 or 17-year-old people or older. It has some mature scenes, but not too graphic. Read it, you won’t be disappointed.
