Series: Georgina Kincaid #1
Genres: Adult-Fiction, Urban-Fantasy, Paranormal, Supernatural
My Rating: 3.5 stars
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. . .
I admit, I’ve been hesitant to read anything from this author since my run-in with Vampire Academy. VA wasn’t really that bad, I just couldn’t get into it. I’m told the books get better, so I may try the next one. I’ve been reading great reviews for this Georgina Kincaid series, so I thought I’d give the first book a shot. I liked it enough that I will be reading the next book soon. However, there were little details that irked me, but for the most part, this looks to be a pretty good series.
First off, I was never truly surprised by the mystery surrounding this plot. When we first encounter a certain character, alarm bells go off. It was too precise; the way the character got introduced in this story. So, when it all sort of spilled out at the end, I wasn’t awed. Secondly, the romance wasn’t what I wanted to happen. I don’t really like love triangles, I just put up with them from time to time. Especially if the other aspects of the story are awesome.
I was never a fan of Roman. The way he pushed his way into Georgina’s life felt too controlling. He was just so….. pompous most of the time. I don’t care how suave he was on those dates. Just no. I am, however, TEAM SETH. Maybe it’s his author status, but he’s my type of guy. He’s so unbelievably timid, and it was sexy as hell to me. There were not enough moments of them together, so I’m looking forward to the next book. Hopefully, things will work out.
I love Georgina’s character. I guess her job description, as well as her succubus nature, makes her a little flippant. It totally worked for me, and I’m just glad to not have a clueless heroine to deal with. All-in-all, I am definitely gonna read the next book and just go from there. If you are a fan of urban fantasy, I recommend this one!
I’m on cloud nine right now, and it couldn’t have happened at a better time, after receiving some heartbreaking news Sunday. But…my team won the National Championship last night!! We were up screaming our butts off at the tv, but I am so happy. Won a few hundred bucks from hitting 2 quarters too. I’m so proud of the Crimson Tide right now and Coach Saban. 4 ships in the 7 years he’s been head coach. 16 ships overall for us. I hate to brag, but we have the best football program in the SEC, and for this year, the country! So stoked! Our team is so awesome, even fictional Forest Gump played on it.
