Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon US

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 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...

My thoughts

This book is actually really enjoyable. Georgina is an amazingly written character who is full of wit and doesn't take sh*t from anybody. It was a nice change to find the main female character actually has a somewhat shady past and actually did something with her life before she met her 'soul-mate'. Seth was also an interesting character in a way that he was totally normal, nothing weird about him. He's just a nice, sweet guy who doesn't know that this intriguing woman he's just met is not even human and hasn't been for a long time. Even the secondary characters where written wonderfully in this book, I fell in love with basically all of them. The storyline, although entertaining, didn't really hold any real surprises for me which was disappointing but being my first Richelle Mead book I wasn't really expecting much. I totally fell for all the characters I laughed and cried along with them and didn't want to put the book down, I think I read this book in just a few hours it was that addictive. I was expecting this to be more dark and gritty but found it to be quite a light and hilarious read.
