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…
3.5 stars out of 5 stars
1- As my first adult book from Richelle Mead, I really enjoyed Succubus Blues. There were some definite LOL moments.
2- I love the fact the Georgina is a fellow book nerd. It was hilarious reading Georgina's first conversation with Seth, AKA her favorite author.
3- I like the fantasy aspects of the books. All the different kind of species and how they all interact with each other. I haven't read anything like it so I was a bit hesitant about it but since it Richelle, I knew I could give it a shot.
4- I did feel like the book was a little long. It felt there was some unnecessary information. I did enjoy the book, though. I can't wait to continue with the series.
