Book Review: Succubus On Top (Georgina Kincaid #2) by Richelle Mead

Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses Seth Mortensen, the shy, sexy, incredibly gifted Seattle writer she's been dating, she'll drain his life force. Georgina is a succubus - a demon who draws her power from other men's pleasure. Admittedly, the shapeshifting and immortality perks are terrific, and yes, Georgina did choose to join the ranks of hell centuries ago. But it seems completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can't get hot and heavy with the one mortal who knows and 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 behaviour, and Georgina suspects that something far more demonic than double espressos is at work. She could use help finding out, but Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, is preoccupied with corrupting an ultra-conservative talk radio star - and 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...

I still can't believe I'm reading a series with "Succubus" in the title.....these are definitely not YA or Christian books. There was more sex in this one than Succubus Blues, and more bad language.

I like the characters, plot line and the writing though. The story keeps you guessing until the end. I also like how each book resolves itself before going to the next one. No Suzanne Collins cliffhangers here!

Just One Gripe:
The title is pretty explicit!

The Best Thing About This Book:
With all that said, these books are compulsively readable. I finished the first one in a few hours and read the second one even faster. 

Appropriate for a younger audience:

Characters:  3/5
Plot:  3/5
Setting/Imagery: 3/5
Originality: 3/5
Ending:  3/5
Total Score:  15/25
