This Halloween, prepare to be haunted by a kiss…

Midnight Kiss is a limited edition collection of four BRAND NEW, NEVER RELEASED novellas, all set in New Orleans on Halloween night.

AFTER MIDNIGHT by Sarra Cannon
From the outside, Becca Goldberg looks like any normal freshman girl at Tulane, but she’s been keeping a terrible secret. She’s really Allison Moore–a young witch from Peachville hiding out from an evil coven of witches known as the Order of Shadows. She thinks she is safe until an unexpected accident occurs. Now, she only has until midnight on Halloween until her identity is discovered.

She must turn to the hottest, most elusive guy on campus for help. Will he help save her? Or will her life come crashing down around her after midnight?

THE MIDNIGHT TEST by Juliana Haygert
Being the weakest witch of her generation, nineteen-year-old Hazel is convinced she’s supposed to live a normal, human life–except for the occasional ghost hunting. When Hazel moves to New Orleans, the most powerful witch coven in the world grants her a chance to join them, but only if she passes a dangerous test on Halloween night. Everything is going fine until mysterious Sean steps in Hazel’s way, putting her entire test at risk.

Will she be able to ace the test and keep them both alive at the same time?

SEDUCTION’S KISS by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Never agree to a road trip to New Orleans with your roommate. At least not when your roommate is dragging you along while she reconnects with an ex boyfriend. Possible consequences of failing to take my advice:

1) Unknowingly going out with a vampire stripper.
2) Getting kidnapped by said vampire’s nest mates.
3) Falling head over heels for your winged hero.

Believe it or not number 3 is the worst one, especially when no one believes you that he exists.

KISS OF AWAKENING by Jennifer Snyder
With one kiss, everything will change…

When a mysterious letter arrives from her estranged mother, twenty-one year old Kenna Blake and her best friend, Bree, make a trip to New Orleans hoping for a little Halloween fun and to get away. The mystifying Crescent City has something else in store for her though.

Cryptic messages, a hot tour guide, and a new sense Kenna can’t seem to explain are just the beginning of this eye opening trip. Will Kenna accept what awakens with in her or will she crumble under its reality?

My thoughts:

AFTER MIDNIGHT
by Sarra Cannon

This novelette tells us story of Becca, who in her previous real life was called Allison Moore and in the past she was a popular, beautiful and cheerful cheerleader. And now she is always living on edge, looking over her shoulder to ensure no one from Order of Shadow will find her. To make sure it doesn’t happen she has to make sure to drink her potion at certain time and day of the month. Simple. But what if during Halloween night your friend finds the potion and accidentally damages it? Then you have to make sure you have a new one, but because life is never simple, the witch that was always helping Allison is not able to provide more of the potion and is sending her for help to someone she was not expecting. Like at all. The race against time, danger started and also feelings between her and her companion awakens.

This short story was fun and I loved it 🙂 it made me go and buy other books by Sarra 🙂

THE MIDNIGHT TEST by Juliana Haygert

The main protagonist of this story is Hazel. A young witch that believes, that she is not as talented as the rest of her family. In order to be accepted to White Sisterhood she is entrusted with Midnight Test. As live likes to complicate things, Hazel meets Sean, sexy, mysterious and also sad. She is determined to get accepted and also help Sean move on from one tragic accident that happened few years back.

I really loved this part of the box set 🙂 Hazel was the type of girl you will like and Sean…. well sexy and mysterious guys were always like a candy to me 😉 In here we have ghost, danger, adventure and of course blooming romance 🙂

SEDUCTION’S KISS
by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Everyone knows that I love Alyssa’s books. And this was no other. Alyssa always makes my day with releasing new story.

And I just LOVED THIS STORY. Well come on. Who wouldn’t love Owen and Jared together on a rescue mission?
I loved Owen always and he was also a mystery in the previous books, but I could not wait for his story. And this novel is just a beginning, which made me jump in joy.
Daisy is a college student, who gives in to her room-mate nagging and decides to go to New Orleans with Her for Halloween. She didn’t expect a creepy room-mates of her friend’s boyfriend.
A visit to mystic store ended worse than she anticipated. But then finding a perfect guy at the end was worth the pain and danger. And the Kiss they shared? Has ruined her.

Alyssa once again showed her brilliant story writing and amazingly well developed characters. The book is really great!!

KISS OF AWAKENING
by Jennifer Snyder

Ok, this story made me cry within few minutes of reading. My heart broke for Kenna. During her hard and sad times, she is receiving a cryptic letter from her absentee mother with short message and plane ticket to New Orleans:
“The time has come, my sweet girl, for you to find out who you really are. The Kiss of Awakening is upon you.”
After talking to her best friend, Bree, they decide to go, have fun and find out what Kenna’s mother wants from her. When the girls arrive, they decide to go to a Karaoke bar and there Kenna meets Devlin. A guy with amazing grey eyes and even more heart melting smile. They decide to hung out together. After a night of dancing and growing passion for each other, comes the day where she is supposed to meet her mother. She goes to a meeting place and what a surprise! Her mother is not there, but she has left her a small gift, a ring. After putting it on, she starts to see things that she didn’t before. During Halloween Night, Hell of A Kiss with Devlin, and after meeting finally her mother, she learns what she is. And it’s not a witch!

I liked this story, I expected more action between Devlin and Kenna, but the end shocked me like WOW! 🙂

Overall this is a great box set that is worth reading 🙂
