Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.
Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty—especially if they learn of her Sight—and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens.
Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries.
Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking questions Aislinn is afraid to answer.
Rule #1: Don't ever attract their attention.
But it's too late. Keenan is the Summer King who has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost—regardless of her plans or desires.
Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.
Faerie intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning 21st century faery tale.

The magical world that Marr has introduced is a testament to the imagination. You can’t help but wish you could see what she sees.Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
Overall, I think the sexual topics are tasteful for the most part, but maybe parents will want to read this before they give it to their kids. As far as the rest of the story goes, I liked it…but didn’t love it.Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
...Wicked Lovely was a win. It's the first in Marr's Wicked Lovely Series, which is probably why it was free, but even if you don't want to get started on another teen fantasy series, this book can stand well on its own.Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
I think Wicked Lovely would have been a better book if it concentrated the narration on Aislinn's point of view. The other ones (Keenan's and the previous candidate's for the Summer Queen) add to the explanation of the intrigue, but overall weaken the impact...Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
All in all, WICKED LOVELY is a notable debut novel from the unique Melissa Marr. It is highly recommended for fans of dark fantasy, faeries and a little out-of-the- ordinary romance(s)...Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
It looks like your typical teen girl/paranormal guy overwrought young adult fantasy romance, but it actually manages to take that genre in some very unexpected, very cool directions. Fans of YA fantasy, and probably fans of regular romance too, should definitely check this one out.Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
It's dark and things don't always go the way you want them to. Wicked Lovely is like a dark, rich chocolate - delicious, fleetingly sweet, and laced with just the right amount of bitterness.Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
Sadly, outside of Aislinn’s excellent strong character, and Donia’s noble, strong, albeit self-sacrificing character, there wasn’t much in the way of other marginalised people - the whole cast was straight and white.Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
I highly recommend this one to fans of urban fantasy -- especially swoony romantic urban fantasy -- so, fans of Holly Black, take note. I'd also give it teens who like Rachel Cohn. And yes, to fans of Twilight.Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
What a delightful book! I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked Wicked Lovely. This was my first foray into the faery world...Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
Marr does a fantastic job setting up the mythology of the Summer King searching for his Summer Queen. It’s complex enough to be interesting but still possible to understand.Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
This series is the first faery literature I’ve read, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, I devoured the entire series over the course of a week. A definite recommend!Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
If you like paranormal books with intrigue and manipulative forces. If you're looking for a dark kind of read. If you want to read something a little different... and you haven't reading this book yet... you should definitely give Wicked Lovely a try.Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
The way the Marr writes has the characters leaping off the page, playing out the scenes in front of your eyes. The characters are skilfully written, making them believable and life-like; their personalities similar to those of people you might know.Read Full Review of Wicked Lovely
