Publisher's Summary

Twenty-two-year-old Ivy Morgan isn't your average college student. She, and others like her, know that humans aren't the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun... and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. 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. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers that are stalking the streets. As Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes that she's not the only one who's carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. She is no longer sure which 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.

Soooo Good

When I first started listening to it I wasn’t that invested in it as it was a bit slow starting but once you got past that it gets so good. I’m on the second book now and can’t put it down.

Slow but decent

It was a little slow at the beginning, it picks up around the middle, I loved the romance bits and the revelation and twist at the end. It captured my attention enough for me to go for the second book, I do recomend it but have patience.

Bizarre

I enjoyed the overall story... but I didn’t appreciate the apparent confusion over whether this was fantasy or erotica. I will not be listening to more by this author

TINK!

I didn’t really know what I was getting into as usual. The cover gives me one thing but the story is totally something else. Ivy is an interesting character she is a little no-nonsense and a little shielded. I love that she has a brownie for a pet, Tink is hilarious is amazon prime habit is a little bit concerning and probably my favorite side character yet!

Ren well he is charming and knows what he wants if not a little arrogant. I like that he doesn’t beat around the bush he knows he like Ivy so he goes after her.

The stuff happening with the other world and its door that is good but I found it dragged on a little I know book 1’s you have to get the world building in so I am hoping book 2 and 3 the story comes out more.

I really like the narration, I think she does a great job with each other characters giving them their own voice I am continuing on with the series.

This book wasn't anything I was expecting. While I enjoyed the characters and the story line, I have to say I found it a little slow. I figured out the plot very early on so I spent a large part of the book waiting for it to finally come together. I am not a big fan of Fae so I'll admit I didn't have high expectations once I realized this was a Fae story and it was better than I expected. I don't know if I will even continue with the story though.

The narration was good, Amy Landon isn't a favorite of mine for most books because she has a voice that fits a specific type of person, like upity lawyers, heiress, queen types so it doesn't really work for me as a butt kicking Fae hunter. Besides that she did a great job at the other voices, especially Tink!

Okay. Not what I was expecting.

Part of my discontent with this story is that I didn't realize it was mainly a romance. I was looking for more Fae based stories and the New Orleans setting peaked my interest. So I gave it 3 stars instead of two because that part is my fault. So I will try to ignore the ridiculously sappy deep conversations with sexual undertones and corny "That's What She Said" type jokes that dominate the interactions of the two main characters of this book. Don't get me wrong, I like Romances. But in good smut the couple usually have a lot more friction and discord before they realize their sappy soggy lust for each other. Even romance needs to have more suspense. The main issue for me is that their conclusions and decisions are both completely predictable in one instance and illogical in the next. I actually think the author had a good setting and setup. But the quick romance she forced between Ivy and Ren sort of ruined it for her. He overlooks some pretty serious flaws in his logic so he can fall in love. Also some elements of the story don't seem plausible. It's disappointing when you can think of alternate and BETTER resolutions than this supposedly CIA of the Otherworld can. Death is not the only option folks! And the children of members aren't the only possible recruits for your organization. Come On! I kept hoping Ren would just be knocked off so Ivy could get on with her extremely predictable but somewhat interesting story.

So, so good!

I fell into this book right from the start. I wanted to listen to Wicked all the time. I really liked Ivy, she was brave and kicked butt where ever she went. She had a hard time letting people in, it was hard to connect to her...at times. I also loved Ren. He was a perfect match for Ivy and made the story exceptionally swoon worthy. But I think the story stealer was Tink. He had me cracking up so many times.

I wish it wouldn't have taken me so long to read this book. Everything by Armentrout is amazing, so I should be surprised how much this paranormal romance rocked. I really hope to read/listen to Torn, book two soon, as it recently released.

Not great

I didn’t feel this was very well written or narrated. The writing was barely mediocre and contained grammar and vocabulary errors that the narrator read verbatim. The MC acted annoyingly Pollyanna-like and half the time seemed conflict-averse but then veered off to extremely bizarre jaunts into tough-girl mode. It was all over the place.

The narrator wasn’t much better than the writing. The voice did NOT match the character or the theme of the book. She was all one tempo and tone which would have been better cast as a schoolmarm or preschool teacher. Definitely not the type of heroine the author was trying to convey!! This book and narration was a complete mess.

Naughty talk was ridiculous.

What did you love best about Wicked?

The overall story was pretty good.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Eh...the narration was okay, but thought some of her interpretations, especially Ren's dialogue, were a bit off.

Any additional comments?

The scenes where Ivy and Ren were intimate, and most of Ren's dialogue made me want to both, stab my eardrums, and punch Ren in the throat. Yes, it was that ridiculous. Other than that, the story was solid. I really enjoyed it despite the poorly worded naughty & sweet talk. It would be a 5 star review otherwise.

Arrogant male

I need more consent. I hate it when male characters tell the women what the woman wants and touches them without asking.

A mixed bag

I don't even know what to say about this book. So many things annoyed me, and some things just confused me, and yet I still wanted to keep going. The vampire-like fae intrigued me, but I was mostly just trying to make sense of the romantic relationship building in the story. I really did not like Ren, and yet their sexy scenes were somehow still super hot?????? I don't know.

The question now is........do I listen to the next book?
