Publisher's Summary

Trapped in a dark cult, sixteen-year-old Naomi Aren has lived a quiet, albeit unhappy, life nestled deep in the hills of the Ozarks. With uncut hair, denim skirts, and only roses for friends, Naomi seldom questions why her life is different from other kids at school. Until the day her abusive father, who is also the cult’s leader, announces her wedding. Naomi must marry Dwayne Yerdin, a bully who reeks of sweat and manure and is the only one person who scares her worse than her father.

Then she meets Kai, the mysterious boy who brings her exotic new roses and stolen midnight kisses. Kisses that bring her a supernatural strength she never knew she had. As the big day approaches, Naomi unearths more secrets of about her father’s cult. She learns she has power of her own and while Kai may have awakened that power, Naomi must find a way to use it to escape Dwayne and her father - without destroying herself.

Suspenseful & Emotional, a Great Listen!

Who was your favorite character and why?

The tension at the beginning, with Naomi's family and the mysterious events happening around her really draw you in. It's a unique and well told story.

What does Emma Lysy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She captured a range of emotions that added a lot of depth.

Any additional comments?

A+ would recommend!

MUST READ!!

At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like this fantasy romance type book. It took me a couple chapters to warm up to it, but all I can say now is... Give me more! Naomi is a young girl who many can identify with, living in an abused neglected situation with her parents. She finds love fantastically unexpected. If you like romance, and you like a good book with amazing character, do yourself a favor and buy this book!! I can't wait to listen to more by this author!! I also have to give props to the narrator for keeping me in the moment and full of emotion just by the different voices and the way she makes it so easy to distinguish from one character to the next!

Loth did an excellent job keeping me interested

Nine times out of ten I would have rated this book a 2-star or lower. This is almost never my type of book. The teen angst, sudden magic ability, love triangle, surprise villain... all these thing usually add up to a big disappointment for me. But Loth did an excellent job keeping me interested despite all the reasons I could have had to hate it.

I think at least part of my enrapture with the book came from listening to Emma Lysy narrate the story. It never felt like someone was reading me a story; it felt like I was watching a movie. She did an excellent job portraying each character and their emotions.

Who says a kiss is just a kiss?

What did you love best about Kissed?

The dynamics of the two parties trying to keep eachother in check despite one or the other going rogue.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The brothers earn a tie spot. They really made for good sibling and love triangle dynamics.

Which character – as performed by Emma Lysy – was your favorite?

Dwayne...I hated this guy with a passion! I wanted to punch him in his hillbilly face. He was voiced perfectly...drawling and dumb as rocks. It was awesome!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely too heavvy for one sitting, but there were days I put off a few tasks to keep listening.

Torn

I actually really like the story line and characters. most of the character development was great. However, I hate love triangles. I really wish I would’ve read the reviews before I started the series! But with this particular love story, I just didn’t get it, couldn’t relate, had no “feels” while reading. I personally couldn’t see how she could love the one she ended up with. There was so little time spent with the two of them with no progression in their relationship. I haven’t quite decided if I even want to continue with the series.

Four Stars

I am not quite sure what I think of this book yet. There were so many characters and so many twists, that I’m still trying to process what happened. The one thing I like about this book is it was not cliché with young adult novels. It was actually pretty clean, too.

I think what really made this book better was listening to it as an audiobook. Emma did a great job using different voices for each character without being annoying. She has an easy voice to listen to.

The beginning was good but...

The beginning was really promising, but as soon as she got to Vegas it got a little tedious. It pretty much went from cool religious cult stuff to generic ya thing with a bunch of made up words, an underdeveloped romance, and a vague paranormal world that doesn't really make much sense.
The narrator was good though.

This is a story for someone else

this is a well-written story, identifiable characters that you can see due to very good writing. It is a bit too real for me though it would be great for others. The narrator is what kept me listening long after I knew I wasn't interested in the story. Emma is superb.

Incredible!!!

Very well written. Quite original,
Fantastic performance!

The only mistake that stood out was that the location fluctuated between Las Vegas and Los Angeles. It's an oversight. Aside from that.....stellar!!!
Eagerly awaiting next book.
