Why I Started This Book:
True is he’s been in my wishlist for a while but what gaves me the push was a book club.
Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.
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. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven’t stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess getup complete with whip and wings. And she can’t have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy’s life. 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…

I had this book on my list for a while and needed a litlle push in the right direction. The truth I always end up reading a vampire book over the other ones, can’t help it.
This book was a good surprise cause I even found a vampire in the midlle and wasn’t expectin, book they are so different from the rest you found in other books.
I loved the fact, that the end gives a little cliff for the next book making the characters without a real end, but that’s ok since I love a good series.
The interest part is that Georgina gives pieces of her formam life, the mortal one, during the story. So the book keep us entertained all the time. I coundn’t put it down, and it tuck me two days because I had to sleep some moment.
Georgina is smart, funny, but feels stuck in the past and the mistake that rules her life. I loved her friends, especially the vampire called Peter, cause I couldn’t stop laughing after the description for his hair.
Seth is a very sweet boy, that also has trouble with his past, and needs a litlle push for his love life.
Roman was perfect, too damn perfect, and keep me gessing in the book wich side he is.
You Might Enjoy This Book If:
You like a good supernatural book, cause in this one you gonna find everything, from angels to vampires and of course the succubus from the title.
“Sometimes you wake up from a dream. Sometimes you wake up in a dream. And sometimes, every once in a while, you wake up in someone else’s dream. ”
“Well, that depends, I suppose. I heard someone once say that men dance the same way they have sex. So, if you want everyone here to think you’re the kind of guy who just sits around and—”
He stood up. “Let’s dance.”
“I figured I could read more than five pages tonight since I’d been deprived for the last couple of days. When I finished the fifteenth, I discovered I was three pages from the next chapter. Might as well end with a clean break. After I was done, I sighed and leaned back, feeling decadent and spent. Pure bliss. Books were a lot less messy than orgasms.”
