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.
What a great start to this series! Lure picks up about 2 years after Seduction’s Kiss left off. Daisy has been searching for Owen since they were separated. Her friends have no memory of what happen in New Orleans 2 years ago. She’s tried to explain what happened, but no one believes her. She’s even suffered through counseling to prove that she hasn’t lost her mind. Just days after Daisy has finished with college, she leaves her normal, mundane life and heads off to New Orleans. Using the guise of going to New Orleans for a job interview, Daisy plans to retrace her steps from 2 years ago and hopes to get some answers. Only a lot of time has passed. The people she once encountered are no longer there, she’s still dealing with the effects of seduction’s kiss and her life is about to get crazier. She thought dealing with vampires was bad, but she hasn’t met the Allures yet. The Allures are beautiful, but manipulative creatures and I’m not sure what their true motives are. To make matters worse, Owen is no where to be found. Will Daisy be able to find Owen again? Will the Allures prove to be trustworthy or just another paranormal creature set out to get Daisy?
I want to try to keep this review as spoiler free as possible, so here it goes. I loved Lure! Even though this book takes place 2 years after Seduction’s Kiss, it feels as though no time has passed. I am once again captivated by the world and mystery that Alyssa Rose Ivy has created. I’m on the edge of my seat wondering where the story will go next.
We are introduced to some new supernatural beings in this book. The Allures captivated me from the moment that we are first introduced to them. Their supernatural powers are pretty cool, but their motives are still questionable…
Owen and Daisy do not disappoint. Even though they have been separated for a few years, it’s as though nothing has changed for them. Their pull to one another is stronger than ever and this time, Owen is more determined to not loose Daisy.
Lure is the first book in this exciting new series by Alyssa Rose Ivy. It has great paranormal aspects, romance, suspense, and twists. You will be on the edge of your seat until the very end. Just to warn you, this book does end with a bit of a cliffhanger. I have a lot of questions and hope that we will find some answers in the next book! I am really excited to see what will happen next and what craziness will await us in book 2!

We stood awkwardly for another moment before I had to break the silence. “It’s been a while.”
“Two and a half years.”
“I thought about you the past few Halloweens.”
“I thought about you more than that. It’s actually pretty humiliating now that I’m standing in the same room with you. I don’t know what I was thinking.” She looked away.
I walked toward her. I had to wipe that regret off her face. “I thought about you a lot more than just Halloween.”
“Yeah.” I stopped right in front of her. “You were very memorable.”
“So were you.” She licked her lips. Again with the lips.
“I probably should ask you a million questions right now, but would it be okay if we put those off and did something else?”
“I guess that depends on what else you want to do?” Her eyes widened slightly.
“I want to kiss you.”
“I’m okay with that.” Her eyes seemed to sparkle.
I didn’t wait for her to change her mind. I brushed my lips against hers gently. I was going to keep it short, but I had to know if I was glorifying the last kiss.
She moved her lips against mine, and any thoughts of keeping it short disappeared. I wrapped my arms around her as I deepened the kiss, greedily pushing for access beyond those irresistible lips of hers. She opened up, welcoming me in with the same intoxicating taste as she had the last time.
She moaned, encouraging me to continue the kiss. I didn’t need the encouragement. I lifted her up and carried her over to the couch. I sat down, settling her on my lap. I needed her close, closer than standing would allow.
Her fingers tangled in my hair as she let me explore her mouth. My hands ached to explore more, but I didn’t want to rush it. I’d waited over two years to taste her lips again, and I was going to enjoy every second of it.

About SEDUCTION’S KISS:
*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.
