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 get-up 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 bought this book because I'm Richelle Mead's fans. I love Vampire Academy so much, and heard many good reviews about this series too so I give it a try. And yeah, quite good, although not as good as vampire academy =p.
Georgina Kincaid once was a mortal, until someday she made a big mistake and to fixed all damages she has done, she sold her soul to hell and she became a succubus, a demon who allures men and suck their soul.
But Georgina is different from other succubus. She still holds her humanity and can't forget her past. She doesn't seduce any men, just those who have low life like drug users, cheaters, or even helpless single geeks (lol). She doesn't date good guys because she cannot let their soul sucked and destroyed. She enjoys her 'normal' attractive appearance and more over she's a nerd, loves books and works normally like other woman on a bookstore. She also loves her friends, so when someone or something seems hunting downloaders around her, she strives to finds out who or what it is. This is made Georgina likeable and the most kind succubus in this world =p.
When finally she meets Seth Mortensen, a geeky-cute-but-sexy writer she admires for a long time, who also seems interest at her, she also meets another mesmerizing guy named Roman. She is torn apart between Seth and Roman because although she like Seth, Roman shows more attention and admiration to her and she herself feels she's unworthy for someone like Seth. And yeah... for a moment she dates Roman even sleep with him.
This do disturb a bit. Despite of her profession as a succubus, she seems easily fall for any guy who adores her, which makes her a bit...cheap (oh wow so harsh xD). Even her past showed it too.
I don't really enjoy her 'side love story', I even don't feel sympathy for her pitiful love life because it's her own fault. Somehow I feel Seth is too good for her, and he is so awesome to still love her no matter what she is and her doing.
Sooooooo.... 3 stars. Overall this book is enjoyable, a well mixture of paranormal-adult-love-action, although Georgina still isn't my favorite but Seth and Jerome absolutely my favorite. Can't wait to see him more at next books.
Warning : This book contains some religion issues. You may find some things are not appropriate with what you believe. But if you could put it aside and take it just as a fiction, you may enjoy this like I do =) And of course because it's adult novel, you may find a lot steamy scenes =). Me? Oh, I already reach ages to read this kind of things. LOL
