Fantasy. Fiction. Romance. HTML:

When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?

But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. At least there's her day job at a local bookstore: free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't.

But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny. . .

"Mead cooks up an appetizing debut that blends romantic suspense with a fresh twist on the paranormal."Booklist

"The mix of supernatural mystery, romance and reluctant succubus is great fun." Locus

"An engaging read."Jim Butcher, New York Times bestselling author

Another great recommendation! I have been avoiding reading this book for a bit now, and I really don't remember why!! The book was great and even though I normally don't get into reading demon books ( I'm more of a shifter/vampire girl) this one was great and kept my attention.
Georgina Kincaid is a reluctant succubus, she really doesn't want to be the one to lead "good" men astray and into sin, so she goes for the ones with low moral character. That in itself is a change, normally you find succubus' just don't care, but Georgie is a great change from the rest. The supporting characters are awesome and I really wish I had friends like that, demons, angels, vamps and an imp!! Of course she has "some" mortal friends also, even though Doug isn't in a whole lot of the book, he is a great character and I hope to see a little more of him in the next one.
The story line about the nephilim, and everything she went through to figure that out was written perfectly, I dislike when some authors just throw the info in there like the character is all knowing and doesn't need to figure out anything, but Richelle Mead got it down, giving us enough info to have our minds racing and then poof, we have it all figured out just as Georgie gets the last little bit of info!
The love triangle was a little played out, and really I had my doubts about Roman to begin with, he just seemed a little too pushy for me, and Georgie gave into him way too easily. And Seth, oh poor Seth... Pulled in by Georgie's charm and then pushed away. You could just tell that he was falling for her and trying not to push himself on her too much, but she goes for the one that just won't stop. I can't say I was completely surprised to find out whom the Nephilim was, but I was surprised that there were two in the city.
The ending gives me hope for Seth, and I really hope that the next one gives us a little more into their relationship. ( )

Read it in a time of need, but this wasn't the erotic book I was looking for. ( )

Hot diggity dang, I love this book!

Richelle Mead was one of my many high school guilty pleasures. I'd sneak off to read Vampire Academy over and over without a second thought. I always knew I wanted to read this series but it either continually slipped my mind or my local bookstores would sell out (and online bookstores wouldn't have it available). So, I finally caved and remembered this book existed when I found book #4 at a local charity book sale. I bought this book full price (which is SUPER rare for me, I'm a deal hunter) and I do not regret it in the least! Especially since I am already hooked on this series. AND, I just ordered the second book FULL PRICE. Yes, ladies & gentlemen, I love this series so much already I'm buying the books FULL PRICE.

So, off to the review races:

Georgina Kincaid is a succubus. You know, the types of mythical creatures that lure men in with sex and intrigue. She's sassy, a total book nerd and is totally the type of character I want to read about. She does have her flaws, her food source is energy from humans, but who doesn't?

So, we meet Ms. Kincaid as she works at her local bookstore and learn that she is TOTALLY OBSESSED with Seth Mortensen (an author of her favourite book series that kind of sounds like Bones but sexier). One day, a man comes into the bookstore and she begins to rave about how she would totally be Seth's book slave. And, wouldn't you know it, SHE SAID IT TO SETH.

My gosh, I already was giggling because I totally saw it coming BUT IT WAS STILL FUNNY.

To keep moving along the plot: There is also many other immortal creatures hanging around - vampires, angels, demons, etc. Some of these are her friends, some are her bosses and some are just strangers on the street. Humans don't know about them though, so SHHHH. Everyone seems to live in perfect harmony.... you know, until they don't. Suddenly immortal creatures are dying and Georgina is pulled into the turmoil of figuring out who, what, why, when and how.

Meanwhile, Georgina is kinda into Seth but a hot guy Roman also comes into her life and chases her around the city. She eventually gives in, because he's hot, and they dance (literally and sexually).

This book is absolutely marvelous for me as a reader. I totally dig Richelle's writing style and tone, her books move at a relatively fast pace, and they are funny AND romantic AND sexy. This style might not be for everyone, but it is totally for me!

I could see some of the plot twists from a mile away, but I didn't come to this book for some Dan Brown style mystery. I came for the love triangle, the sassiness and the fantasy. It felt like Vampire Academy but 18 , meaning more sex, more adult-like themes but all the drama and intrigue the YA universe gave me.

Is there negatives? Absolutely!
Georgina made some poor drinking decisions, couldn't see some of the bad guys (even though it was painfully obvious) and has a bit of a 'poor me' complex. It's been centuries since you've been in love darling, get over the mistakes you made and LIVE.

Other notes: for Georgina being a succubus who has sex with lots of men, this book is not the erotica you might think it'd be. It seriously felt like a good mix of New Adult and Adult romance novels. It's more romantic comedy with fantasy than erotica.

Overall, I love this book. It was a fun ride that let me enjoy it. As long as you don't take this book seriously, you'll enjoy the ride to. I'd highly recommend it to any Richelle Mead fans (especially Vampire Academy fans).

Five out of five stars!

Súcubo (n.):Demonio seductor, capaz de cambiar de forma, que tienta y proporciona placeres a los mortales del sexo masculino.
Patético (adj.): SúCuando se trata de trabajos infernales, ser un súcubo parece de lo más glamoroso. Una chica súcubo puede ser todo lo que se le antoje, su armario daría envidia a cualquiera y los hombres mortales harían lo que fuese por un simple roce suyo, aunque el precio a pagar... a menudo sea su alma.
Pero la vida de Georgina Kincaid, residente en Seattle, dista de ser tan exótica. Su jefe es un demonio de nivel de mando intermedio enganchado a las películas de John Cusack. Sus mejores amigos inmortales no dejan de tomarle el pelo a propósito de aquella vez que asumió la forma de la Diosa de los Demonios, látigo y alas incluidas. Y lo peor: no puede tener una cita decente sin que el chico sufra graves consecuencias...
Al menos cuenta con su trabajo diario en una librería de la localidad: libros gratis, todo el café con chocolate blanco que quiera y fácil acceso al atractivo autor de best-sellers Seth Mortensen, alias Aquel Que Daría Cualquier Cosa por Tocar pero No Puede.
Pero soñar con Seth deberá esperar. Algo turbio se trama en la escena demoníaca underground de Seattle. Y para variar, ni sus encantos ni sus frases lapidarias servirán de nada, pues Georgina está a punto de descubrir que hay algunas criaturas ahí fuera que no encajan ni en el cielo ni en el infierno...cubo con unos zapatos estupendos y ninguna vida social.
