Review of Kiss of Awakening, Seduce and Savor by Jennifer Snyder

(A Succubus Kiss Prequel Novella-currently FREE!) With one kiss, everything will change...

When a mysterious letter arrives from her estranged mother, twenty-one year old Kenna Blake and her best friend, Bree, make a trip to New Orleans hoping for a little Halloween fun and to get away. The mystifying Crescent City has something else in store for her though.

Cryptic messages, a hot tour guide, and a new sense Kenna can't seem to explain are just the beginning of this eye opening trip. Will Kenna accept what awakens with in her or will she crumble under its reality?


I read this in the original anthology called Midnight Kiss featuring Jennifer Snyder, Alyssa Rose Ivy, Sarra Cannon and Juliana Haygert. It was a really good read. All four of the author's stories were enjoyable. I liked it so much, that I have continued on reading their stories. 

This introduction to the characters in the supernatural world that Jennifer created was a pleasant surprise. I can't wait to read the first book in the series! Five glittery stars!

This story originally appeared in this trilogy, but is no longer available as a bundle. Each other has their stories on Goodreads and Amazon. Some are free on Amazon, so check them out!

Book 1 in the Succubus Kiss series

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…


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. I felt like the build up came too late and then it just stopped. There was no sort of resolution to tie everything together. I don't mean that it was just a cliffhanger. The story needed more punch throughout with some sort of resolution in the end, even if it was stopping with a cliffhanger.

Overall, I love Jennifer's writing and am looking forward to book 2! This book gets 4 glittery stars!

Book 2 in the Succubus Kiss series!

(New Adult Paranormal Romance - This is Book Two in the Succubus Kiss Series.)

Succubus Kenna Blake has been infected by a wraith…

The infection is just the beginning. As the wraith slowly gains control, Kenna must fight to keep a firm hold on her succubus nature, before she disappears completely.

Following the only clue her mother has to offer, she tracks down the infamous Luke Bloom, owner of Love Potion #9, hoping for the answers she desperately needs. Unfortunately, Luke doesn’t harbor the magic that could rid her of the wraith and save Kenna’s soul…but his twin sister, Lexy does.

The problem: Lexy Bloom relinquished her magic five years ago and went into hiding.

As Kenna finds herself plagued by nightmares created by the wraith, she vows to do whatever necessary to rid herself of its darkness. Until she learns her only escape comes in the form of a rare spell requiring a shocking cost…


I enjoyed getting to continue reading about these characters. Sage wasn't really present throughout this book. I'm still not sure how I feel about her. Randall is growing on me. Then there is Dex and yeah, he's just a great character.

This book introduced a new character that I can already tell I'm going to love. Kenna and Randall finally have a little smexy time in this installment.

I didn't like how the format of the book was the same as the first one. The story kind of went along, not a lot of action, and then, at the end, the book built up and just stopped. It was sort of a let down. I wanted to see a resolution from the first book still.

There are still so many questions that need answered. I hope book 3 comes out soon and that it resolves some of the problems. This book gets 4 glittery stars!
