Review: Succubus Blues

How do you know if a demon is lying? His lips are moving.” 

Succubus Blues Georgina Kincaid #1) by Richelle Mead is a must read for paranormal romance fans. I don't give a lot of books four cupcakes or more but this one has earned it.

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.

As I've said in my previous reviews, I don't normally like protagonists. They generally have some weird quirk, an uncreative nickname, or are too aloof for my tastes. But lately I've been on a winning streak (knock on wood). Georgina is a well written character who doesn't stay in the dark too long concerning the mysteries around her. The book also has a nice supporting cast including an imp, an angel, and vampires. (I didn't even know the book had vampires in it. But don't worry they aren't like Twilight vampires if that's not your thing.) The only real problem I had with this book was the horrible cover. I've looked at all the versions, and I'm just not impressed. Also, the sex scenes could have been steamier and less clinical. With all of that being said READ Succubus Blues.

Really 4.5 out of 5
