Kiss Me, Kill You by Larissa C. Hardesty - Book Review & Giveaway

Book review
By Suze
Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads
Emmy loves romance novels, she's a firm believer in true love and happily ever after. She likes her classmate Paul, but he isn't interested in dating her. When Jake, the most popular guy at school, asks her out Emmy has no reason to refuse. However, her first kiss doesn't go as planned and Jake ends up in the hospital. Emmy had no idea she's a succubus and that she needs kisses to feed. Emmy is a romantic at heart and only wants to be with one person. What will she do?
Paul's job is to keep an eye on Emmy. She's a risk because she grew up not knowing she's a succubus and has a hard time adjusting to the idea. Paul instantly likes Emmy and when she kisses Jake he knows he can't watch her from afar without wanting to be with her. Emmy and Paul have a problem, will they be able to solve it?
Kiss Me, Kill You is a quick and entertaining story. Emmy is a sweetheart. She's a bit naïve and doesn't understand why boys are interested in her all of a sudden. That's why nearly killing Jake comes as a big shock. I felt bad for her that she has to do things she doesn't want to do because of what she is. She and Paul are an endearing couple. Paul is kind and he's always looking out for Emmy. He's willing to sacrifice himself for her, which is something I loved about his character. Finding out she's a supernatural being isn't easy for Emmy, especially not because she's in love with one person and doesn't have a choice but to be with many different partners to feed. It's a complex situation and a great theme for a book.
Larissa C. Hardesty's writing is easy to read. I flew through the pages of Kiss Me, Kill You. I would have loved this story to be longer. I liked reading about Emmy and Paul and wanted to see a little more depth here and there and read more about their world and their feelings. The story is fast-paced, but sometimes a little breathing space would have been nice. Kiss Me, Kill You is fun and lighthearted, it's a cute supernatural story and I hope it's the first part of a series as Emmy and Paul are an interesting couple and I would enjoy reading about them again.
If you like lighthearted quick reads about supernatural beings Kiss Me, Kill You would be a fun choice.
