Wicked (A Wicked Saga, #1) by Jennifer L Armentrout

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.


My other hand slipped off his shoulder to his chest, and I felt his deep, sudden inhale.  I glanced up quickly, and our gazes collided, held.  I was snared.  The green hue churned restlessly.  His hand on my back slid down the line of my spine and then trailed back up, leaving a wake of shivers behind.  With the hand on my hip, tugged me even closer to him, fitting our hips together.  The act left me warm, and that heat spread through me, causing my body to relax and tense at the same time.  (Page 192-193)


"You know what?"  He kissed the tip of my nose.  I grinned, feeling absolutely boneless.  "What?"  "You owned me with just one kiss," he said, and my chest clenched with the most exquisite pressure.  "I just wanted you to know that."  (Page 327)

LOVE Ren & Wicked so much.

Another Giveaway going on for this one HERE.
