Release & Review! Lure by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Lure (The Allure Chronicles #1) by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Genre: New Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: February 16, 2015
Publisher: Self

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.

Lure is the first book in the Allure Chronicles by Alyssa Rose Ivy. I would recommend reading The Empire Chronicles(because we're given some spoilers) and the prequel, Seduction's Kiss, before reading Lure. This is yet another fantastic series that takes place in a world full of shifters of all kinds. And now we're introduced to some new creatures that live within this world, the Allures. I wasn't sure what the Allures were, but as I learned more about them they intrigued me. I kinda knew what was going on with Daisy, but I didn't really know what it meant for her until closer to the end when we get thrown some small surprises. It looks like Owen and Daisy have a long road ahead of them, and I can't wait to read more about their journey. I can't get enough of this Supernatural World Alyssa Rose Ivy has created. She's never allowed to stop writing these books! EVER!

The ARC of Lure by Alyssa Rose Ivy was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

We stood awkwardly for another moment before I had to break the silence. “It’s been a while.”
“Two and a half years.”
“I thought about you the past few Halloweens.”
“I thought about you more than that. It’s actually pretty humiliating now that I’m standing in the same room with you. I don’t know what I was thinking.” She looked away.
“I lied.”
I walked toward her. I had to wipe that regret off her face. “I thought about you a lot more than just Halloween.”
“Yeah.” I stopped right in front of her. “You were very memorable.”
“So were you.” She licked her lips. Again with the lips.
“I probably should ask you a million questions right now, but would it be okay if we put those off and did something else?”
“I guess that depends on what else you want to do?” Her eyes widened slightly.
“I want to kiss you.”
“I’m okay with that.” Her eyes seemed to sparkle.
I didn’t wait for her to change her mind. I brushed my lips against hers gently. I was going to keep it short, but I had to know if I was glorifying the last kiss.
She moved her lips against mine, and any thoughts of keeping it short disappeared. I wrapped my arms around her as I deepened the kiss, greedily pushing for access beyond those irresistible lips of hers. She opened up, welcoming me in with the same intoxicating taste as she had the last time.
She moaned, encouraging me to continue the kiss. I didn’t need the encouragement. I lifted her up and carried her over to the couch. I sat down, settling her on my lap. I needed her close, closer than standing would allow.
Her fingers tangled in my hair as she let me explore her mouth. My hands ached to explore more, but I didn’t want to rush it. I’d waited over two years to taste her lips again, and I was going to enjoy every second of it.

  1. WOW you got me intrigued and with only a few words. I want to read this book but do I really have to read the others first?
    I will give her books a try because I've heard great things about them

    1. In my opinion, you really should read The Crescent Chronicles first, then the Empire Chronicles, then this series. It's easy to follow along even if you haven't read them, but there are some spoilers within this book if you haven't read those already. They are all soo worth the read though!
