Summary from Goodreads:
Succubus Blues

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:

Another great recommendation! I have been avoiding reading this book for a bit now, and I really don’t remember why!! The book was great and even though I normally don’t get into reading demon books ( I’m more of a shifter/vampire girl) this one was great and kept my attention.
Georgina Kincaid is a reluctant succubus, she really doesn’t want to be the one to lead “good” men astray and into sin, so she goes for the ones with low moral character. That in itself is a change, normally you find succubus’ just don’t care, but Georgie is a great change from the rest. The supporting characters are awesome and I really wish I had friends like that, demons, angels, vamps and an imp!! Of course she has “some” mortal friends also, even though Doug isn’t in a whole lot of the book, he is a great character and I hope to see a little more of him in the next one.
The story line about the nephilim, and everything she went through to figure that out was written perfectly, I dislike when some authors just throw the info in there like the character is all knowing and doesn’t need to figure out anything, but Richelle Mead got it down, giving us enough info to have our minds racing and then poof, we have it all figured out just as Georgie gets the last little bit of info!
The love triangle was a little played out, and really I had my doubts about Roman to begin with, he just seemed a little too pushy for me, and Georgie gave into him way too easily. And Seth, oh poor Seth… Pulled in by Georgie’s charm and then pushed away. You could just tell that he was falling for her and trying not to push himself on her too much, but she goes for the one that just won’t stop. I can’t say I was completely surprised to find out whom the Nephilim was, but I was surprised that there were two in the city.
The ending gives me hope for Seth, and I really hope that the next one gives us a little more into their relationship.
