Her kiss can kill…

Kenna might be the only Succubus with a conscience, but life isn’t so bad now that she’s figured out a specific way to find her male meals.

The only issue is her nonexistent love life.

That all changes when a handsome stranger walks into her life. He may be a legendary vampire, but at least she can kiss him without killing him. However, dating the inspirati

at first I'm very excited with this book. from the blurb it's definitely suite my taste. the opening was okay and very very interesting. the characters too was okay. but the more I read the more I felt this book have a slow pace and the author dragging the plot. it's like walking forward and then back at square one.

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 c

The Succubus Kiss series has already 4 books (including the prequel that is FREE now) and when reading Seduce I could tell that you need to read all the volumes, in order, to have the full story. OK, maybe we will have to deal with some cliffhanger endings, but at least we have already 3 books plus the prequel.

Coming back to the first volume, in Seduce we meet the characters, start to know the set and to have some idea about how the supernaturals live. And they live a very ordinary life. Yes, th

In paranormal fiction, Succubi are generally represented as the bad guys with an insatiable thirst for human life force and eager to use their sexuality to feed. Kenna Blake is different. A year has passed since the end of Kiss of Awakening, when she discovered she was a Succubus. She knows she can use her powers to attract men so she can feed the necessary three times a week, but the idea disgusts her.
Kenna may be a demon, but Jennifer Snyder’s characterisation is so vivid, that she is a young

This review is really hard for me to write, there wasn’t anything really wrong with Seduce, but there also wasn’t really anything that I absolutely loved about it! The characters were all okay, I did like how Kenna seemed like she was a succubus with a conscience. Dex was a good character because he provided some comic relief when things got a little boring - I would have liked to hear more about him though

Seduce follows the story of Kenna Blake. She's not like other girls. She's a succubus. She's having a hard time accepting what she is and has a very interesting way of choosing which type of males she feeds from. Her life is anything but ordinary, but her love life is pretty non-existent. That is until she meets Randall. He's a vampire. Everything about him draws her to him. Maybe Kenna's love life won't be so non-existent after all. .....

Seduce is my first book by Jennifer Snyder. Overall, I f

I originally fell in love with this story after reading The Kiss of Awakening (The prequel novella). I loved the characters! I liked that they added Bree in the book, even as a small part.
Kenna has morals and that was something I really enjoyed. Randall still has me curious and so does Sage. I want to love Sage, but I feel like there might be ulterior motives there. Dex is awesome! I wish everyone could have a werewolf friend like Dex!
The only thing I didn't like about the book, was the pacing.

This book was pretty charming all together. I was a bit confused in the beginning trying to understand the world, but in time everything kind of came together for a better picture and it was different from other ideas of succubi that I have read before. I thought the plot was a bit predictable, but I did enjoy the banter between characters and the it was an easy read with your usual rich and myst

I really really enjoyed reading this book, the characters were likeable and kind of relatable in a sense. Though some things were kind of missing, first of all being the supernatural world, how do they co-exist with each other, how does one creature work?

This chick needs some better friends. I liked Dex, he was easy going and a nice addition. The MC was a little weak in denying her nature. Can’t stand Sage, she was weak and spineless. Pretty sure it is what it looks like. Thought it was a typical supernatural love story until the end.

A wonderful paranormal adventure!

I must preface this review by saying the Succubus Kiss series has a special place in my reading heart. The prequel to this series Kiss of Awakening was featured in a collection last fall and it was my first experience with Jennifer Snyder’s work. I have since become a huge fan and have been devouring her books.

My Review:

One year later . . . .

For the past year Kenna Blake has lived a fairly normal life. Though her dad is gone and her best- friend, Bree has moved away, Kenna has been able to move forward with her life. She bartends at a popular club, is well on the road to launching her own graphic design business and, only has to feed her succubus needs every 3-4 days. Yep, totally normal life.

Seduce is very engaging and I definitely enjoyed it a lot more then thought I would. There’s werewolves, vampires, witches, demons, and the likes. While reading it felt so normal for there to be an abundance of supernatural creatures and what they do to survive (such as Randal having to drink blood, and Kenna having to kiss men in order to satisfy her hunger). It was almost as if humans were the weird ones

What really got me interested in this was that it's about a Succubus, I've never read a book about one before (that wasn't my own). So it was fun to read about Kenna, how she dealt with the need to feed. I really liked Jennifer's take on Succubus', I really enjoyed how Kenna saw aura's. Though I wished Mrs. Snyder exampled how Kenna found and came

Jennifer Snyder is one of my top favorite authors, so I was super excited to start her new Succubus Kiss Series. I had previously read Kiss of Awakening, which at the time was part of the Midnight Kiss Box Set, and was really hoping that Ms. Snyder would expand on the story – and she did!!! Although Seduce can be read without reading Kiss of Awakening, the reader will get some background information that will be helpful when reading Seduce.

Kenna is not your average Succubus. She only takes what

I loved this book. Kenna has a great personality, where at times has no issue speaking what is on her mind, letting things slip out before she realizes it.


It is rare to hear of a succubus story that isn't all revolving around sex and horror stories. This story is a rarity. First off, Kenna doesn't sleep with those she she 'drinks' from. Just a deep kiss, getting the guy worked up, and she can drink down his essence, fulfilling her need while leaving him confused and zoned for awhile.

I received an ARC of this book but the following is still my honest opinion and review.

This is such a fun, easy and entertaining read. I loved the humor in this story that came through in how real main character Kenna was. Kenna may be paranormal since she is succubus after all, but she was so relatable and charming. She has dating mishaps, best friend drama and trouble figuring out her place in this world. I fell in love with Kenna and was rooting for her the whole way through. There are severa

OK, so I really did enjoy this book, but there were some bits and pieces that were missing for me. I don't think I've read a book with a succubus before, which made it a very intriguing storyline. And hope to get a whole lot more as the series goes on.

Where do I start, maybe the characters?

Kenna, I think she's definitely a person that I'd like to be friends with except the whole sucking your energy thing. She's pretty chill and is one of those people that you have a low-key night with. But her

As a paranormal/urban fantasy junkie, I’m ashamed to say that this was my first foray into succubi. That said, I’m glad that I picked this one first.

A little slow, but a great voice. I love Kenna Blake. She’s a ridiculously beautiful woman who knows she’s beautiful, was dealt some shitty cards in life, then turned them into something good. Her character arc fell a little flat for me, but I can see the potential for growth.

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

Let me start off by saying you should definitely read the prequel, Kiss of Awakening, before starting Seduce. It will give you a lot of good background for the main character, Kenna, and make Seduce an even more enjoyable read.

The central character of Seduce, Kenna, has accepted and grown into her life as a succubus and comes across as a strong female lead-which is always a plus for me in the books I read. I got a real kick out of Dex, and hope that somewhere along the line we get to see a story

Ok, so I picked this up because it sounded pretty good. I haven’t read any paranormal romance in a while so I thought why not?

Holy cow! I was not disappointed. This is great! I actually stayed up late reading this one! I never do that anymore. Mostly because I’m getting old and those 2 am nights are harder to spring back from! This book though… it demanded to be read!

The characters are fabulous. A bit crazy at times but fabulous. Even though everyone is some type of paranormal they all felt real

“I could feel her eyes boring into me as though she wished she could melt portions of my face off with her stare. It wasn’t that I hadn’t ever been confronted by an ex or even a current girlfriend before; it was that I’d never had to deal with them of the supernatural type before.”

4 stars, although paranormal isn’t my usual genre, I really did like this book. It was different, but different in a good way!

When I think of a succumbus I'm thinking of a lot of steam and seduction, but I was a bit surprised at how tame it was. I did still enjoy this story immensely, don't get me wrong, I was just expecting a bit more. In Seduce we are sucked into the story of Kenna. Kenna is a succumbus, but she hates what she is and constantly guilts herself for it. She doesn't do normal relationships with guys because they are her meals. It woul
