Succubus on Top - Richelle Mead

Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses Seth
Mortensen, the shy, sexy writer she's been dating, she'll drain his life force. Admittedly, the shapeshifting and immortality perks of a succubus are terrific, but it's completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can't get down with the one mortal who accepts her for who she is. . .

It's not just her personal life that's in chaos. Doug, Georgina's co-worker at a local bookstore, has been exhibiting bizarre behavior, and Georgina suspects something far more demonic than double espressos. She could use an assist from Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, but he's giving Georgina some highly distracting come-hither vibes. Georgina is going to have to work solo on this one-and fast, because soon, Doug's life won't be the only one on the line. . .

My thoughts:
I am confused, did the way she works change? I felt the whole demon thing fell apart.

The book was also totally boring, nothing happened! I mean omg, so boring! She did absolutely nothing. Sucked off some guy in a bar, talked to coworkers, spent time with her boyfriend.

And do not even get me started on her relationship with Seth. He must be a saint. I get that this is her work, but uh no you didn't.

I was very disappointed by this instalment. Dull, lifeless, I did not even like her. I will not read more. Calling it quits now. Total second book syndrome. Sometimes I still read book 3 after one of these, but now, nah.

  2. I was thinking about starting this series since I liked Mead's VA books, but I don't think I'd get on board with this and if it's boring I'm definitely out. Thanks for such a helpful and honest review!

  10. "Sucked off some guy in a bar"

    Hahahaha! I actually remember that part, but don't remember the specifics tat book. I listened to all of them close together, so it's all a blur. But I loved it and how it all pull together in the end.

  12. Hmm, this series is on the list to read at some point, but I don't think it will be any time soon. So many other good ones keeping me busy right now. I don't blame you for pulling the plug when it just wasn't doing anything for you- too many books out there to slog along with ones you don't like.

  13. I still need to try some of her adult books. I know her YA is definitely not for me.

  15. Oh yeah - I can't read relationships like that.
