Another Lucy Kincaid-Sean Rogan romance-thriller. Not a fan of the romance parts. I’ve learned to read these books in print form (as opposed to audio) because I enjoy the mysteries, but can fast-page through the obligatory bedroom capers and the high-drama high school hand-wringing about their relationship. That said, this is a good mystery. A serial killer is murdering college girls after drunken, drugged-out, sex-fueled raves in New York. The killer is dubbed the Cinderella killer because the...more
I have come to admire Lucy Kincaid, I don't know that I would be able to live through all the horrible things that she has had to. So now that I am done reading this book I have to say that I am glad that Lucy wasn't the person that was on the line. Does that mean that she escaped unscathed, no, it is just that her hurts this time around are more emotional than physical.

Lucy is still trying to navigate her new relationship with Sean, which is not made any easier with Patrick's very obvious disap...more

Mystery is well developed, could do without (as stated by other readers) the romance "antics." Have read others, comments on mystery and romance hold true throughout series.
When I still had a few chapters left, I added myself to my library's hold list for the next entry in this series. I think the biggest compliment that I can give this series is that it is extremely easy to read. Despite being in one of those moods where I just can't manage to finish any of the books I start, I polished this one off within twenty-four hours.

I still just don't really care about the romantic part of the plot. I get that it is partially a romance novel, but I would be happier if Lucy...more

This one really didn't hit the spot for me. I can't put my finger on why but I know that I just wanted to hurry through it and get to the end. Not b/c I needed to know how it ended but b/c I wanted it to be over. Not my usual feeling about a Brennan book either!
Denise Sellers
WOW, What an amazing author, I am so glad I decided to give these books a try. Again you think you know who the killer is and then BAM, it's not even close to who you think! Love the Lucy Kincaid storyline!

I am addicted to the paranormal genres, but after reading J.D. Robb's great Romantic Mystery series, I decided to check out more series in the genre. Now I am a card carrying fan of Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner and most recently of Allison Brennan.

I had read Brennan's Paranormal series, but in the Procedural Thriller is where she shines as an author. Not only in the Criminal aspects but also in the interpersonal rel...more

Allison Brennan's Kiss Me, Kill Me (Lucy Kincaid, #2) got lost on my TBR shelf. I can't believe I missed/skipped this second book in the Lucy Kincaid series. And truthfully? Had I read it at the time it came out I wouldn't be saying this: KISS ME, KILL ME is my favorite of the Lucy books. I love Sean and in this book, the reader gets real insight into him and his feelings for Lucy. The reader sees Lucy's struggle to appear normal, and to find some measure of normalcy in a life turned upside down seven years before. Ms. Brennan of...more
I haven't had an experience like this since I read Lisa Unger's Beautiful Lies and Sliver of Truth. The aforementioned are a duo of books that were sort of a Gone Baby Gone Lite but I hated the first one because it was, well, ridiculous. It was definitely romantic suspense, which already makes it ridiculous on principle to me, but it was just... bad. Really bad. I went on to read Sliver of Truth because I am OCD like that and who would have thought that I would love SoT? Not me, but I did. It's...more

Kiss Me, Kill Me by Allison Brennan is the second story in the Lucy Kincaid Series with If I Should Die releasing 11.22.2011 and a fourth book is in the works per authors web page.

This book shifts focus between Lucy Kincaid and security expert Sean Rogan, to FBI Agent Suzanne Madeaux, along with partner NYPD Detective Panetta who are searching for a serial killer dubbed the Cinderella Strangler who has killed four women. Madeaux is an agent who likes working and living in NYC, and has refused a...more

This book was... ok. Sean and Lucy, the main characters, I found to be rather irritating and more like caricatures rather than characters. There was a little bit of smut, a teeny bit of gore, and a whole lot of posturing. And yet, I read the entire story and find myself wanting to go back and read the first book in the series, but only if I find it for $0.50 at a used book sale.

(If this review seems familiar, that's because I had a goodreads account before that I'm copying my previous reviews f...more
This was a nice second book in the Lucy Kincaid Trilogy. I really loved Lucy in the first book and I just ended up loving her more in this one. She has gone through so much in her life and she just keeps bouncing back and moving on. I love her relationship with Sean and how he makes her act a little silly sometimes and makes her smile. She definitely needs that in her life. I do wish her brother Patrick would grow up a little, he treated her very badly in this one and although I can understand h...more
I'd actually rate this 3.5 - I liked it a lot, and read it very quickly, but it wasn't quite as compelling as the first one in the series. I really like main character Lucy, a very strong and smart young woman. But the story line this time wasn't as strong, and I felt that character development wasn't done as well as in the first book. The story revolves around the search for a missing girl and a serial murder investigation, with Lucy providing key information in both cases. As in the previous b...more
Sean Rogan, a private investigator and Lucy Kincaide are investigating a missing girl case. FBI agent Suzanne Madeaux, working with the NYPD, is investigating a serial killer case, dubbed the "Cinderella Killer" because the murderer takes one shoe from each victim. Soon, Sean and Lucy meet up with Suzanne when they realize that the missing girl was somehow involved with the most recent victim. Sean, Lucy and Suzanne realize that they must learn to trust each other if they are going to solve the...more
3.5 stars. Entertaining mystery with engaging characters. Many allusions are made to other episodes in the main characters' lives, though, so I'll have to explore the author's other books to get the full story of those events. Exactly what I need in a dreary winter season with tax preparation looming -- escape!

Yet again I finished another Allison Brennan novel in a day. I thought the first novel in the Lucy Kincaid series was good, but this one was so much better. The story line was great, the characters were still very much intriguing, and I loved how crazy it was. I love when a book has a complete psycho in it and the killer in Kiss Me, Kill Me is a psycho. I loved it. I was surprised when I liked the secondary characters in the book more than the main characters. Dennis by far was my favorite along...more
Another book with a Kinkaid family member. Lucy has spent years preparing herself for a career in the FBI. She is a criminal psychologist, has spent a year working in a morgue etc. Her oldest brother, Patrick's partner, Sean is contacted by a family member, his cousin, Kirsten is missing. Lucy's FBI application was rejected and Sean gets Lucy involved in his cousin's disappearance to help her forget her disappointment but he encourages her to appeal. The trail leads them to New York where they g...more

Writing reviews of any book is hard for me. But I do like Allison Brennan's novels and I like the give-and-take among the protagonists. Sometimes the storylines seem to gallop along, pulling me faster than I want to go, and I sometimes have to go back and read the section a second or even a third time. Other times it seems to bog down in descriptive prose and I find myself fast-forwarding. But I've found that to be true of just about every author I've had the pleasure to read. So, I gave it 4 st...more
Audio book. Good read Lucy Kincaid and Shawn work together on solving murder of young women tied together by sex web site
I just finished this book. I have always loved a good police/ murder style mystery. This is the second in this series which spins off a few other series. You could read this without the others, but I think you lose a lot of background on the charachters if you dont. I really enjoyed this book and think that Brennan has really begun to devolope Lucy into a good main charachter. Her books can hit on some pretty touchy stuff such as rape. But she always shows a positive turn around for the characht...more

Mind blowing! Brennan knows the perfect balance of romance(which was kept as a sub-plot, not central the way I like). I love it when my predictions about the culprit goes wrong and for that,I salute the author for her talent to thwart me in this kind of a mind game. The secondary characters are also given attention and after reading this second and even better book in the series, I think I can safely buy the rest of the series. The complexity of the characters and the plot is what makes it all w...more
is reading it
3.5 stars.
I'm having some issues with this series now. Two books in and Lucy still isn't sure of her feelings for Sean? Or at least can't be sure of them? Also her brother Patrick and statement to the lucy earlier in the book was never readdressed. I really want to like Lucy but feel as though she has regressed emotionally since last book. I'm still loving Sean though. Just overall, so much criminal focus that they got lost in the story. Not sure I'll be rushing out to read the next.

i love these stories. lucy/sean have become my fave couple. she is so broken and sean is slowly piecing her back this installment lucy/sean need to track a serial killer praying on young girls that have a unique commonality(a male of course)i love the way these books expose the cybercrimes that in reality we should be cincerned with and the steps these charecters(thru horrific experience for lucy)and doors entered to help others caught in the predator web(site) linda
This is the first book by Allison Brennan that I encountered, because I was at work at the time. It hooked me from the beginning. I can see why Lucy is getting more than a trilogy in her series. When I reached the middle of the book, and it said she had been rejected from the FBI, I knew something was going to be done to counter it, because it would have destroyed the whole series if she wasn't hired by them. I loved this book, and can't wait to read more by this author.
Nov 10, 2013 mirta rated it 3 of 5 stars  ·  review of another edition Recommends it for: Brennan's readers, those who know her characters
not too bad for a casual read, no dead animals in this one either yay!!!
too many coincidences to be believable and a bit mellow explanations but still keeps up the pace, could have been better though, a bit short for my taste
lucy and sean are such likeable characters, definately my favorites from her novels apart from Jack
will be continuing with the series, interested to hear about Lucy's FBI career (always wanted to be an agent but sadly not american)
"Kiss Me,Kill Me" is the follow-up suspence novel to Allison Brennan's "Love Me To Death". RCK East,a protective-services company, normally didn't handle finding missing or runaway teenagers; but even a distant family member problem trumped all. Lucy Kincaid and Sean Rogan manage to figure out their personal relationship while working with the FBI to catch a serial murderer.
"Kiss Me, Kill Me" has an intriguing plot,deceptive clues,and great writing.
I found this book at the library and started reading it right away, not knowing that it was part of the Lucy Kincaid series. I'm going to start w/ book#1 so I can get into the whole series, but I did absolutely love this book! I did already figure out not even 1/2 way thru who the killer was & the motive. I was able to finish the book in 1 day, that's how involving the story was to me with the different twists and turns it takes you to the end.
This book was great. Rarely do I read a suspense book where I can not identify the kiler until the denouement. I have really enjoyed all the books in this series. I like the interplay between the characters and the continuity from one book to another. While each book is completely stand alone, the characters wader in and out of each others stories and lives.

Ms Brennans's RCK series is one of the best out.
