Series - The Allure Chronicles #2
Genre - New Adult Paranormal

After years of searching Daisy and Owen have finally found each other, only to face the threat of being forced apart. If they are unable to stop Daisy from becoming an Allure, she will forever lose the ability to love.

Desperate to stop the change before time runs out, they must decide what price they are willing to pay to save their love.

I received Lust in return for an honest review from the author. Lust starts after the end of the prior book Lure with Daisy and Owen have found each other. As the time is passing Daisy is starting to become more and more like the Allure and the worry of losing herself and Owen is real. Determined not to lose Daisy and be able to turn her back into a human they set out across the country for Owen’s home. However after arriving back in New Orleans it’s clear that they don’t have much info on the allures but decide to visit the witch who helped Daisy before. Violet and Hugh are waiting for them when they arrive but Violet is determined to help Daisy.

The only option to save Daisy is to take her to the Elders which are at Mount Majest in an alternate world where only Owen will be able to go with her. The four of them travel to the portal but after crossing over they find that only Owen and Daisy are together the other Allures are missing. They encounter the Dryads who take them to the Allure house but the visit is short lived and Violet and Hugh are still missing. When a strange Allure shows up he is determined to turn Daisy in for the double bounty, will Owen be able to stop him? Will Daisy reach the elders before becoming a full Allure?

I still love Daisy and Owen they are just so perfect for each other kind of a ying and yang they complement each other. I love that while Daisy is dealing with the emotional disconnect that Owen is determined to not let her give up on them. I love seeing more of our King and Queen of the society and the glimpses into their future. I wasn’t sure how I felt about Violet but as the book progressed I really started to like her more and more. I really felt like she cared about Daisy I hope to see more of her in the next book. I can’t wait to find out what happened to Taylor….

Lust is the 2nd book in the Allure Chronicles which is a spin-off of the Crescent Chronicles. The Allure Chronicles is my favorite series so far when it comes to spin-offs so I have some huge expectations that needed to be filled. I wasn’t disappointed if anything the story exceeds them by leaps and bounds. I love the world that the characters live in hidden from the human but with a whole society of different supernatural beings ruled by the king. I love the characters Daisy and Owen are my favorite couple they just grab my heart and twist it all up. Lust is an emotional roller-coaster from start to the very last page I was on the edge of my seat. I may or may not have had tears in my eyes by the very last page no one was around to witness. I love the authors style she is an amazing storyteller her novels are beautifully done. I couldn’t put it down actually finished it in one afternoon because I just had to know how it was going to end. Warning it does have the most evil cliffhanger but it works for the series since it is all about emotions. I loved Lust it’s one of my favorite of 2015 even if I felt my heart was ripped out. I can’t wait to see how it all plays out.

  1. OOoh nice! I got this one this week as well, sad to admit that I haven't started it yet since I'm on vacation! But next week I should definitely get to it! Glad to hear you enjoyed this one! I find I can't quite remember Lure too much, but hopefully that changes once I start this one! Great review!
