Torn Wicked #2 By: Jennifer L. Armentrout Release Date: July 19, 2016 Add to Goodreads Source: eARC from publisher in exchange for a honest review GR's Summary: Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same. Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her. Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him? But as the Fae Prince begins to close in on Ivy, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.
Torn was the ultimate reading escape! As I jumped in to the sequel of Wicked, I was carried away by the yumminess of Ren. Jennifer Armentrout creates the most drool-worthy and dreamy male leads. He captivated me with his sex-appeal, and the way he treated Ivy! Tink continued to entertain with his ability to frustrate Ren, as well as his obsession with Amazon, The Walking Dead and getting a new kitten. Tink is just all kinds of fabulousness with his ability to make me laugh, and let me tell you, he surprises readers in this installment, in a moment that you will never see coming!
Ivy grows tremendously as a character, in the sequel. She becomes so much stronger, resilient, and courageous. She is willing to sacrifice for the one she loves, and I admired her grit, stamina, and the constant fight in her! She is truly a warrior!
The suspense escalates in this sequel of the Wicked Trilogy. Secrets of the Order's history are revealed that were pretty shocking. Also, we get some ominous new members to the New Orleans division in The Order, one of which Ren despises with good reason! The prince is determined to woo Ivy, and remove Ren from the picture. However, we see just how cold, manipulative, powerful, and unscrupulous he is in this sequel. There was a ton of action, allies in the most unlikely of places, and plot twists that kept me glued to my kindle.
I give, Torn, by Jennifer L. Armentrout 5 Swoon-Worthy, Secrets Revealed, Danger, Trauma, and Suspense Filled Stars!!!
