Publisher's Summary

Paige has no interest in being a demon’s plaything.

She shouldn’t even be in the Fallen City of Elisium, but all it takes is one Nephilim jerk proclaiming her to be tainted and that’s exactly where she winds up.

The demons she encounters there are vile, wicked beings, though none more so than Kincaid: The cruelest and most powerful of them all. To ensure her safe return home, Paige must strike a bargain with him.

Forty days in exchange for her freedom.

With no other option, she agrees. If Kincaid’s interest in her can help solve the riddle of her origin and aid in her escape from Elisium, she figures it’ll all be worth it.

Only, the more time she spends with Kincaid, the more the tenuous line between love and hate melts away. Soon, Paige will be forced to confront something far more disquieting than the truth of her heritage: A confusing connection with a demon that she cannot deny.

From best-selling author, Elena Lawson comes the first audiobook in an inventive new series that will thrust the reader into a world of dark temptation, deception, and desire.

Perfect for fans of L.J. Smith, Kresley Cole, and enemies-to-lovers romances. Enter the supernatural world of Fallen Cities in Kiss of the Damned today.

Note: This audiobook is part of a series and ends in a cliffhanger.

slow start, great end

It took me a little over half way into the book to get really interested in the characters. However, once i reached a certain point I was hooked. The main female starts off as a slave and is bought by the main male. She was kept separated from society her whole life so is very sheltered and hasn't experienced much in life beyond what her former keeper let her (basically nothing). Kincade comes across her in the selling auction and buys her despite the fact that he's never bought a slave before and based on his intrigue. He thinks someone sent her as a spy because they knew she'd be irresistible to him. He's the broody not-say-much type and she's a naive young girl whose goal in the beginning was simply freedom and safety. There aren't too many characters in the story line, its mostly the two main characters living together and learning how the situation is new for both of them. My favorite part of the book hands down was the ball. Paige gets all dressed up and wears makeup for the first time. Of course she's a show stopper and Kincade is all for it. I like the.friendship dynamic growing with Paige and the only other female in the story. I look forward to where that will go. The story seemed to be a slow development into a wider world. A few characters and new places were introduced towards the end and I'm very interested in alot of the unanswered questions. The author's description of hell was amazing, and I anticipate more action there. We still don't entirely know what Paige is, why/how Kincaid's brother died, or what is up with the rest of the sibling dynamic.

Wow!

This was amazingly written! At the beginning I felt the characters feelings, I felt: lost, frustrated and anxious. I loved the evolution of the story and story line, I really can't wait for the next book!

Diggin it

I’m really liking the start to this series! It’s your typical plot of said girl doesn’t know what she really is because she was raised as a different species, but with a few plot twists. She’s not a “kneel down and take what life gives her” kind of girl and I like that. I’m excited to see more snark and sass as she comes into who she really is!

New Spin

This book has a new spin and angels and demons. This book was not what I thought it was going to be. To tell the truth I like that it makes you think about what could happen next. I can't wait to find out what happens next.

Kiss of the Damned

I really enjoyed Kiss of the Damned by Elena Lawson. It was a different spin on angels and demons to me. The main protagonist feels like a real person, and makes you genuinely interested in what is going on with her. In fact I was talking to her on what not to do in my head throughout the book. I the only downside to the audiobook is the narrator has a soft, slow way of speaking. Even the adrenaline inducing scenes is spoken soft and slow. It needed some stronger emotions in those scenes to convey the urgency going on. Other than that, it was great, and I’m ready to read or listen to the next book in the series.

Enchanting

This book was surprisingly amazing. The blurb, while interesting, doesn’t give this book justice. I was captivated from the beginning by Paige and her horrible up bringing. I’m grateful her past was only touched upon because I was horrified at the minimal amount that was described. Almost 2 decades of torture wrenched at my heart. Kincaid is an interesting and broody demon. I think their relationship went from hesitant acquaintances to something more a little too quickly. It was obvious they were attracted to each other but I would have loved some more angsty tension. Nonetheless, I love Paige and Kincaid together and am sad book 2 isn’t on audio yet! The narrator did a great job.

Great storyline

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook and the storyline is intriguing. Very mysterious. It’s off to a good start in the serious. It does leave you on a cliffhanger.

A-freaking-mazing!

I'm a huge fan of Elena, and I've read the ebook of Kiss of the Damned... but the audiobook is EVERYTHING. So well done, I feel like it made me love the story even more. I cannot wait for book 2... I need more Kincaid!

I was hooked

I received a free audio copy of this book directly from the author for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it’s so full of intrigue and mystery. It starts off a little confusing but once I got my head round exactly what was happening I was hooked. I really loved both Paige and Kancaid’s characters and how their relationships developed throughout the plot. The world building was pretty interesting in a almost dystopian way in a paranormal book with how the world is after Lucifer walks the Earth very clever. I also appreciate the way that there’s almost a theme of Stockholm syndrome which is really interesting. I definitely look forward to the next book in the series!
