Hello happy readers! First things first my giveaway for a SIGNED copy of Warcross (Warcross #1) by Marie Lu is still active until 2/2 and can be found here so check it out! Now I have had lots of good books recently and one book/series that has absorbed so much of my attention as of late is the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead. I have at the present just finished the final book yesterday and have all of my reviews ready to go but don't want to overwhelm with the series so I'll spread them out some for a good variety, something I didn't have the will power to do when listening! That said here are my thoughts on Succubus on Top (Georgina Kincaid #2) by Richelle Mead. Spoilers for book one, Succubus Blues (review).
So when we left off our succubus Georgina and our favorite author Seth were trying to date. This is made slightly more complicated by the fact that they can’t do much more than cuddle and briefly kiss or she’ll drain his life force. Small complication….oh and she has to keep sleeping with other good men as part of her job. Complicated doesn’t even begin to describe it. That may be her eternal job but her real day job is at the best local bookstore that she loves and her co-worker and friend, Doug, has been acting very strange. Given her knowledge and senses she feels there is something demonic afoot and is going to use all her ability to try and figure it out. Oh and an Incubi friend is in town on a very serious job and he has enlisted her assistance adding just another pot to the fire.
I was so invested in this book. I listened to book one back at the start of 2017 but I fell easily back into this as soon as the audiobook started. The narrator did a fantastic job adding to the story. I was really invested in this book I don’t know what it was but I was on the edge of my seat through most of it not wanting anything to happen to Georgina on her investigation or more importantly every moment with her and Seth. I was just in love with it. I had been trying to think of some type of loophole since the beginning on how they could work out because of all the sexy hot fun times there are in the books, none is as wanted as for her and Seth to have their time! So as things happen that cause problems for my ship I was not thrilled but was yelling at my phone like it could make it better. I was very into it. My heart was racing all the time from start to end and I finished it in a day I do believe.
“For every bad thing in life, there are more good things to tip the balance.”
While I do consider the personal development and the relationship between Georgina and Seth a main point of the novel for me I did also enjoy still getting to see my other cast as they worked through some of the issues. Georgina has some interesting lesser-demon friends and I adore them. The story is full of humor, action, intrigue, and of course the sexy fun times that she has given her job is literally sex. Her day job at the book store and watching her balance everything is on point. I like how this series manages to capture some pretty interesting issues in different ways. The good and evil of everyone type thing as well as social issues. Still the writing was on point and the way the narrator hit the witty quips and such had the time flying as I listened. I could see each of the characters each of them having their own way of speaking and personalities that made it seem so real. I highly enjoyed this book and dove right back into the world for the next book which I will discuss soon!
Until next time…
