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?
Kenna Blake is dealing with the loss of her father after he battled cancer. While cleaning out her father's belongings, her out of the picture mother leaves a mysterious note on her doorstep inviting her to go to New Orleans. Kenna and her best friend Bree head to New Orleans to relax and get away and find out why Kenna's mother invited her there. As people on vacation do, they explore the town and hit up bars and sight see. That's not the only thing going on though, something is changing in Kenna, she's seeing things when she looks at people that she never saw before.
Kiss of Awakening was a really fast read, that focuses on Kenna's self discovery. The novella builds until the surprise is released. I wasn't sure what the surprise would be, I had a few ideas but I didn't guess right, which made me happy. I'm hoping the story is continued in a full size book, because I enjoyed the characters and world. JSnyder is one of my favorite New Adult authors, I recommend you snatch this collection up while it is still $0.99!
