Kiss of Awakening by Jennifer Snyder
A Succubus Kiss Prequel
Source: Purchase
My Rating: 4½/5 stars
My Mini-Review:

Kenna Blake has exactly two people in the world she can count on, herself and her best friend, Bree. With the recent passing of her beloved father and a mom who is more of the cards-on-the-holidays and nothing more, Kenna is basically alone in the world.

For the entirety of her life, nothing out of the ordinary has ever happened to Kenna but as she is packing up her dad’s house, she receives a mysterious invitation from her mother to come to New Orleans. How the invitation got to Kenna is odd but the mention of her approaching Awakening is ever more mysterious. What the actual hell this all about is a complete unknown but with any luck, the trip to NOLA will explain everything. With Bree in tow, a beautiful room already reserved for her and another invitation, Kenna and Bree head out into the night hoping to find some answers. What Kenna finds is a beautiful new ring left for her by her mother, Devlin a smokin’ hot and totally willing tour guide and, a strong desire to let loose a little and see what the night holds. Before the weekend is out, Kenna gets the tiniest bit of one-on-one time with her mother, an explanation about her true identity, the ability to see pretty colors around certain individuals and, leaves poor, willing Devlin on the ground passed out cold following a sexy kiss. Well hell, maybe what Kenna’s mom had to say is actually true. Kenna Blake is a newly awakened succubus.

The Bottom Line: With the exception of Bree (I really, really hated her!) I thoroughly enjoyed this short, sweet read. Kenna has a lot thrown at her in a very short amount of time and rather than melting down or freaking out, she accepts it all and does her best to adjust to her new reality. Kenna is a strong character I liked immediately and that liking only increased when her succubus abilities come into play. In all, Kiss of Awakening is just what a prequel should be, short, sweet, fast and, an excellent introduction to a new series.

P.S. Though you don’t have to read the prequel before launching into the series, I highly recommend doing so. It offers good insight into Kenna’s background and how she finds out about her status as a succubus. ( )
