Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Aislinn has always been able to see faeries, just as her mother and grandmother could. She was always taught to remain oblivious to them, to follow certain rules and she would be just fine. That worked just fine, until one certain faery took notice of her and decided to make her his.
Keenan was the king of the Summer Court and had been searching for his queen for centuries. With his powers bound by the Winter Queen, his mother, he couldn't fully protect his fey until his queen was by his side. And he believed Aislinn was the answer.
Melissa Marr weaved an absolutely wonderful tale between Aislinn's world and that of the faery courts. I've never really be one for books on faeries, but this one pulled me in from the very beginning. There was so much at stake, not only for Keenan and his Summer fey, but also for Aislinn and her grandmother and best friend, Seth.
Even though I was cheering on Aislinn for wanting to make her own choices, I also found myself feeling horrible for Keenan and the position he was in. More than anything he wanted to be the king he was meant to be and to have his queen, his love, by his side. There's so much more story left for these characters and I for one can't wait to find out what else happens.
