Life isn’t so bad for succubus, Kenna Blake. True, she seems to be the only succubus with a conscience and a specific strategy for finding her male meals, but she has a cute new apartment, a budding graphic design business, and the most unique friends she’s ever had.
Her personal love life, however, is non-existent.
Until the legendary vampire Randal Vincent sweeps into her life. Even though he isn’t someone she set out to date, at least she can kiss him without killing him. But when you’re dating someone who’s the inspiration for Dracula, there are bound to be a few hiccups along the way…
Seduce is the first book in a New adult paranormal romance series. The Series is called Succubus Kiss. Seduce transports readers to a world in North Carolina where all sorts of paranormal creatures live and play. It seemed like there were a ton of them in this town, living alongside all the normal humans. In Jennifer Synder’s paranormal world all creatures- paranormal and human, have a distinct aura color. The main character, Kenna, who is a Succubus does a pretty good job of linking the auras she sees to what kind of person or creature they are. Human auras reflect the human’s personality and paranormal auras are only based on what kind of creature they are. So throughout the story I got a good feel for the various character’s auras, but at the end of the book there is a great little chart that plots out the colors and what they mean. If you have a paperback book, flip to the back and check it out before reading. I had fun trying to decide what color would be the strongest in my aura.
Kenna is a succubus with a huge conscience. She thinks of herself as a parasite to the male population. On the spectrum of succibi in this story, that puts her pretty far on the “pure” end. I thought it was funny that she thinks of herself as some big skank but she only kisses the guys to feed. For a Succubus she is tame. I really liked Kenna. I thought she was a good amount of sweet and spunky. Her friends Dex and Sage cracked me up as well. And Randall was very intriguing, but I do wish we got to know him a little better. I wanted to get inside his head a little and see what he was thinking and figure out what it was that drew him to Kenna. Other than the fact that he is hot, hugely important to the vampires and very old, we didn’t know too much about him. He does seem like a nice guy though.
Seduce does a great job of describing the world, and setting the stage for a paranormal series that seems will be a hit with me. I do have some questions, like why all these paranormals decided to live in this area? But other than that, I love that the town has different night clubs that are each set and owned by specific paranormal. For example- Love Potion 9 is run by witches, Red River by Vampires and Moonbeam by werewolves. I thought that was cute. All in All Seduce is a solid foundational read for a pretty interesting looking paranormal romance series. One that I will definitely be continuing. I would read the second book right now if I had it.
