Seduce provides a very interesting twist on the typical paranormal storyline. Kenna is a reluctant supernatural who isn’t comfortable with the behavior of her kind. Most succubi just feed without much thought or care. They enjoy the thrill of the experience. Kenna has managed to find a balance between keeping herself alive and also remaining true to her moral compass. She keeps very specific guidelines for who she will feed on and hopes to make men better people by removing their worst qualities when she does feed. It’s really a neat take on a succubus.
In addition to dealing with being a succubus, Kenna is also struggling with the same things a lot of young women are…trying to find a boyfriend, working to support herself while she tries to start her own design business and balancing friendships and a very strained relationship with her mother. You really end up wanting to be best friends with Kenna and hang out on Friday nights because she is so relatable despite being supernatural.
Seduce introduces several characters who are part of Kenna’s adventure. Sage, a slightly conceded but lovable vampire, is a coworker and close friend of Kenna. Dex, a goofy but sexy werewolf, is also friends with the girls. And the extremely interesting Randal Vincient, who has ties to Sage. Randal is an ancient vampire whom Dracula is based on. He’s pretty much a rockstar in the supernatural world.
This part of the series really focuses on reintroducing you to Kenna and her lifestyle. You also get to see Sage and Dex interact with her as their friendships grow and evolve. Kenna is working, getting new design jobs, and spending time with her friends. She also meets the elusive Randal and he becomes an interesting possibility for love. However, Kenna’s hopeful perspective is stolen away when she is attacked by another supernatural being that brings up memories of the past for Randal. When Randal walks away, Sage and Dex step up to stand by Kenna’s side. There is a big cliffhanger to keep you in suspense until book two.
I really enjoy the writing style of Seduce. It’s an easy but entertaining read. Jenn creates a very interesting plot line that has amazing character development and plenty of twists to keep it interesting. But she doesn’t overly complicate the story where you have a lot to keep up with. Some stories get so complex that you constantly feel the need to go back and fact check. Jenn has found a wonderful balance of enough details to keep you deep in the story without drowning in it.
Seduce is a 5 star read. I highly recommend this book for anyone who a paranormal romance fan. Even if you generally don’t like the paranormal, this could still be a good read for you. The characters are really well rounded and you will relate to them on levels beyond their supernatural status.
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. It was incredibly easy to fall into as well, which made it all the more better.
I think the characters had a lot to do with that. See, Kenna is a succubus, and her job is to seduce men in order to have her hunger satisfied. Now, instead of being an overly confident, seeking-for-a-guys-attention, pro seductress, she’s actually fairly awkward and shy, and she hates having to seduce men. She thinks of herself as a slut, which I honestly couldn’t understand because the most she ever does is make out with them (because that’s how it works) and hasn’t had sex in a year, or more. That made me really love her, because she wasn’t the typical succubus and she really made it work. She’s also a great character, always there for her friends, kind, caring, and loving.
Which brings me to Randal. He’s a very old vampire, having been the inspiration for Dracula (I know, he’s really, really old). And yet he isn’t overly cocky and confident. He too is shy (there’s been instances where he’s blushed, and it makes that heart beat) and he takes his time getting to know Kenna. I mean, okay yeah he has his cocky moments, but they’re usually in the form of smiles directed at Kenna in amusement, and he clearly gets the ladies anytime he wants because one, he’s gorgeous, and two, he speaks more formally (which they find sexy?) as he is a lot older than he looks. Randal and Kenna obviously have a connection, but neither of them are rushing it, or declaring their love for one another. To Kenna, it’s simply a crush. Which is another reason why I love it.
I also love the world, especially the clubs. The clubs are filled with supernatural creatures, some who own the clubs, others who work there, and the rest there for a good time. I love the atmosphere and the fact that Randal and Kenna met in a club. I’ll let you find out how by telling you to read the book. I also love how they have special drinks for them, and that the one Kenna tends to get leaves her in a fog for many, many hours. It was all very intriguing and I loved every minute of this book.
However, I wasn’t so fond of a few characters. Namely Natalia, someone who Randal recently broke off with. She likes to stalk Kenna secretly, especially when Kenna is with Randal. She did show herself twice though, once at the club and once when Kenna was with Randal. She’s kinda crazy in love with Randal by the looks of it, and would do anything to get her spot back. I don’t like her much because of that, and because she obviously wants to hurt Kenna. She’s just a sour character.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading Seduce and I definitely recommend this to lovers of paranormal and romance books.
