Kiss Me Kill You by Larissa C. Hardesty
Thank you to Netgalley and Entangled Teen for a copy of this eARC in exchange for a fair review.
Emily is a romantic at heart and her best friend Lilly is pushing her to start dating. So when she works up the nerve to ask Paul out she is humiliated and embarrassed when he says no. Paul didn't say no because he doesn't want too, Paul has a secret. He is Emily's watcher and he knows what she is, even if she doesn't.
Things are changing for Emily, no one has noticed her until but when Jake the hottest guy in school asks her out she knows she can't say no. When he kisses her, he ends up passing out and Emily is confused. When Lily tells her that they are Succubi and they feed on men, Emily thinks she is just playing with her. However, when her mom freaks out on her about Jake, Emily thinks they have all gone crazy.
Plus there is this thing with Paul, he is who she really wants and he doesn't seem to affected when she kisses him. True love isn't for Succubi though, Emily finds out that Paul is her watcher and her mom and everyone is being threatened if she doesn't comply with what the Powers want.
This is was a cute easy read, and I felt for Emily she wasn't raised to understand any of that world despite the fact that her best friend, her mother and her best friend's mother are Succubi. I think anyone would have a hard time coming to terms with having to turn in souls to the Powers.
I did like Emily and Paul, but they were a little too much back and forth and all over the place for me to really love them. However, I love that he seemed to embrace how she felt even though he was raised differently than her and he knew what they had to do. In the end he really did have her back. I kind of feel like that ending was a little to much of a cliffhanger for my tastes especially it appears to be a standalone.
