Book Review: Succubus Dreams (Georgina Kincaid #3) by Richelle Mead

Some days, a girl just can't catch a break......especially when the girl in question is Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men. First there's her relationship with gorgeous bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, which is unsatisfying on a number of levels. It's not just that they can't have sex in case Georgina inadvertently kills him (generally a turn-off for most guys). Lately, even spending time together is a challenge. Seth's obsessed with finishing his latest novel, and Georgina's under demonic orders to mentor the new (and surprisingly inept) succubus on the block.Then there are the dreams. Someone, or something, is preying on Georgina at night, draining her energy, and supplying eerie visions of her future. Georgina seeks answers from Dante, a dream interpreter with ties to the underworld, but his flirtatious charm only leaves her more confused-especially as the situation with Seth reaches crisis point. Now Georgina faces a double challenge-rein in her out-of-control love life, and go toe-to-toe with an enemy capable of wreaking serious havoc among mankind. Otherwise, Georgina, and the entire mortal world, may never sleep easy again...

This was my favorite Georgina Kincaid book so far. I really enjoyed the story and the addition of the new angel characters. What a surprise at the ending! I think I actually gasped out loud. Georgina is growing on me, despite the fact that she is a demon from hell. I love reading about her human days and her relationships (or lack thereof) over the years. There is still a good bit of bodice-ripping in this book, but not as much as Succubus on Top. Or I could just be getting used to it.

Just One Gripe:
I still can't get used to the overt sexuality in this series.

The Best Thing About This Book:
My favorite part of this series is finding out about Georgina's past.

Appropriate for a younger audience:

Characters:  4/5
Plot:  4/5
Setting/Imagery:  3/5
Originality: 4/5
Ending: 3/5
Total Score:  18/25
