Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead

Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead
2007, Kensington
Series: Book 1 of Georgina Kincaid

Synopsis: 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. . .

The Good: I flat out loved this book. Georgina is a succubus with a morality problem. She just doesn't want to suck the life out of nice guys, which leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to actually dating a guy. She works in a bookstore, hangs out with a group of guys (each with their own paranormal qualities) and otherwise leads a pretty lonely existence. She's also witty, a little messed up, immortal and extremely interesting to read. The book was completely perfect, with a mystery I never saw coming and a stellar cast of secondary characters. I absolutely cannot wait to continue the series.

The Bad: Not a thing.
