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…

Mystifying Review:

So, I loved Richelle Mead’s young adult series, Vampire Academy, I had to try out her adult series. Georgina traded her soul to become a Succubus and we follow her through her life to see what she goes through on a daily basis. The job of a succubus is to suck down the life energy of men while having sex. As a succubus, having sex and getting that energy makes her feel whole and good. But doing this cause men life to be cut short and knocking off a couples of years of their life. Which is why she cannot be in an actual relationship with a guy. Not only is she a succubus, but she is also a bookstore manager, and is crazy for Seth Mortensen and is book series. All Georgina wants is a loving relationship. And she meets two guys on the same night, her adorable favorite author, Seth and the hot, and sexy Roman.

Georgina is a very likable character. I can’t help but feel sorry for her. Part of the time when we see her alone, we get inside her ahead and it is very clear how much she hates being a succubus, to take away men’s life energy and can never really be happy and that is all she longs for. We get to know why she gets turned a succubus, but I wonder if she made the right choice in turning so, part of me thinks that their could have been another alternative for her. We also have Seth, her favorite author. They have quite an embarrassing meeting. Well, she is embarrassed by it all. I thought that Seth was an okay character. I mean, to be he was kind of boring and too normal and shy. I liked her other love interest a lot more. Roman is everything I love in a guy. He is sexy, hot, confident, funny, seductive, loving…I really like this guy and it is very known that he wants Georgina.

I really liked the storyline. I thought that a few parts in the book were a bit slow that made me put down the book and took me awhile to pick it up but through the second half of the book it really picked up and I could not put it down, but overall it was a great book. I really like that Richelle didn’t wait until future books to show us why Georgina got turned into a succubus. I like that we got to know that before going into book two. The ending was really what got me to want to read the next book right away. I really love the way that Richelle ends her books, she does it perfectly. And the dialogue is quite funny. Some things really do surprise you, but you will have to read to find out what. I am really looking forward to see where this story is going, what is going to happen next, how is it going to end, and if Georgina will get her happily ever after.

Mystifying Quotes:

“Love is rarely flawless,” Carter pointed out. “Humans delude themselves by thinking it has to be. It is the imperfection that makes love perfect.”
