Reviews: Seduction's Kiss and Lure by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Seductions Kiss
Seduction's Kiss
The Allure Chronicles 0.5
Published:  January 29, 2015

*Prequel novella to Lure (The Allure Chronicles #1)*

Never agree to a road trip to New Orleans with your roommate. At least not when your roommate is dragging you along while she reconnects with an ex-boyfriend. Possible consequences of failing to take my advice:

1) Unknowingly going out with a vampire stripper
2) Getting kidnapped by said vampire's nest mates
3) Falling head over heels for your winged hero

Believe it or not number 3 is the worst one, especially when no one believes you that he exists.



My Thoughts:  I loved Alyssa Rose Ivy's Crescent Chronicles  series, as well as her spinoff series, The Empire Chronicles.  It was in these series that we came to know and love Owen. Seduction's Kiss is the prequel to Ivy's new series, The Allure Chronicles, and is Owen's story.  In this short prequel you dive head first into the middle of all kinds of paranormal activity set in the heart of New Orleans.  Though, short, Seductions Kiss is action packed and delivers a punch in a small package.  Ivy has set the stage for what looks to be an awesome story.

About LURE:
There's danger in the beauty...

Two years, six months, and twenty-five days. That's how long it had been since I'd seen my winged hero— not that I'd been counting. I'd suffered through years of counseling just to convince my friends and family that I wasn't crazy and knew he didn't exist.

But he did. And I was done waiting.

Days after college graduation I headed back down to New Orleans to retrace my steps and find Owen again only to find my life was about to get even crazier... thanks to the most beautiful and dangerous of all paranormal creatures, the Allures.

My Thoughts:  It's been a couple of years since the events that occured in Seductions Kiss.  Daisy hasn't stopped thinking about her winged hero or the events that occured 2-1/2 years ago.  Now she finds herself back in New Orleans, determined to find Owen once again.  While there, she runs into and is befriended by some extraordinary and very intriguing paranormals, called Allures.  Daisy soon finds herserslf in a whirlwind of a journey with these mystical beings who have agreed to help her in her quest to find Owen, but there is also much more going on that she isn't aware of, and that is the disturbing part.  When Daisy and Owen finally find each other, could it be to lose each other all over again?

I very much enjoyed Seductions Kiss and couldn't wait to read Lure.  While Lure is definitley intriguing, it wasn't quite as exciting as I had hoped it would be, especially in light of what happened in Seductions Kiss.  Much of the story, to me, was more like laying groundwork for what was yet to come and was kind of hard to get into, seeming a  a little drawn out through the middle of the book.  That said, it was good, and ended on a note that leaves you anxious to see what will happen next.  I definitely will be reading the next installment and look forward to seeing where Alyssa Rose Ivy will taken Owen and Daisy on the next leg of their journey.

  1. I loved Seduction's Kiss as well, a bit sad this wasn't as exciting but I love all her work so I am sure I will like this well enough. Hopefully book two will blow us both away.

  2. Hey Ellen! :) I've been seeing some reviews on this book and they haven't all been that great which made me hesitant to read it. Reading your review, I'm even more hesitant. Tee hee. I love your blog by the way!
