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.

NA ReviewMy ThoughtsLure is the first full length novel in the Allure Chronicles, a new adult paranormal romance series. There is also a prequel novella out that is FREE on amazon, called Seduction’s Kiss that is a great introduction to the series. I would 100% recommend reading Seduction’s Kiss first. Now, a note on the name. This makes the book sound way crazier than it is. Seduction’s Kiss is a magic lotion that was given to the main character and it is much better explained in Lure, but the name is a bit misleading until you get to the first book.

The Allure Chronicles is Owen’s story. It is set in the same paranormal world of The Society that Alyssa Rose Ivy writes so well. I love the idea of multiple series existing alongside each other in the same world. And they each have different paranormals that drift in and out of the books in varying degrees. If you are new to Alyssa Rose Ivy’s paranormal series, I think the Allure Chronicles is a great one to start with. You don’t need to read the other series in order to understand what is going on. The main characters from the Crescent Chronicles and the Empire Chronicles are in the book, but their roles in the story are fully explained. (Of course, I would recommend reading all the series as they are each fantastic) In the Allure chronicles we get to learn all about the mysterious allures. It turns out that the paste the witch (in Seduction’s Kiss) gave Daisy had some Allure essence in it and it is having some interesting side effects on Daisy.  I do love that Owen isn’t affected by it. It makes their intense crushes on each other all the more wonderful.

And the two of them are wonderful. I couldn’t read the pages fast enough. I wanted more, more MORE. I think this may be my favorite series of Alyssa Rose Ivy yet. I have enjoyed all of her books, but there is just something about Daisy and Owen.  And something about the Allures. I found them completely fascinating. I have so many questions about them! The end of the book nearly broke my heart. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen in the next book. Alyssa Rose Ivy does such a fantastic job with paranormal romances. She is one of my very favorite New Adult authors, and is at the top of my auto buy list.
