Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead

Succubus. An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic. 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...


From the first second I picked up this book, I was hooked! Georgia Kincaid is a succubus with style. Her bookstore job is a dream, and the guys she hangs out with when she isn't "working" at her real occupation are a hoot. If you like a series with snark, believable characters you come to love and care about, then this is the series for you. Yes, there is some succubus action, but it is handled in a sultry, well written way that won't leave you feeling like you need to take a shower afterward. I can appreciate that.

What I liked:

The depth of the plot, the breathable characters and the fact that it is a series.

What I didn't:

Not a thing.

Overall rating:

5/5 Stars for a great book, and amazing series I can't get enough of!
