NA Review My Thoughts

Lust is the second novel in the Allure Chronicles, a new adult paranormal romance series. Lust picks up right after Lure left off, with Daisy and Owen having just found each other and the bomb of what Daisy having allure essence in her really means. It was one doozy of an ending, but then again the end of Lust was also pretty gut wrenching. Alyssa why do you do this to me?? Ugh I just love her books so much. And the Allure Chronicles has to be one of my favorite series of hers.

I love all of the characters, not only just Daisy and Owen, but Violet and Roland have special places in my heart as well. I was kind of hoping that we would see more of Roland in this book. Not because I dislike Owen. I really love him, I am just also intrigued by Owen and his connection with Daisy. Luckily, I have a feeling that I will be seeing a lot more of him in the next book. Wink wink.

Lust takes all of the characters on a world-wind high speed journey to try and fix what is happening to Daisy. I won’t go into too much more detail about what exactly is happening because I love all the Allure history and characteristics Alyssa Rose Ivy explains in Lust. Things that I so want them to fix or find a workaround from because I love Daisy and Owens connection. I think there is something so pure and innocent about their feelings and the way they treat one another. I know that seems strange given everything you know about the series- the titles, the covers and the series name, but it is true! haha, they are just too cute together.

Another exciting moment in Lust for me, was when mention of Energo was made! Alyssa, you master you. (for those of you new to Alyssa’s books, Energo is a land in another two of her series- the Forged Chronicles and the Afterglow Trilogy.) All of her series and worlds are coming together and linking up! I absolutely love it. I want to see some kind of chart or map made of all of Alyssa’s series lands and the creatures that live there. Someone please make that!

Fans of New Adult paranormal romance need to read the Allure Chronicles. And it is great series to start with if you are new to Alyssa’s works because it touches so many of her other series. Start with this one and then move off to any of the numerous other series that overlap. Comment below if you want suggestions for reading order, or more information about the other series.

blue4.5Note: The 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.
