Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead

Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid, #1) Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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 get-up 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:
Succubus Blues is the promising debut novel by new author Richelle Mead. Richelle Mead's Succubus Blues is a book that kicks off another urban fantasy series. If you like supernatural themes this is the one to read. It's got everything, action, romance, humor and great plots.
Georgina Kincaid is tired of being an immortal succubus. She wishes she can give up her gig and settle down, fall in love and have a family. She also has a crush on thriller writer Seth Mortensen which isn't helping. But she'll have to wait until she can shut down whoever is murdering demons and angels alike in Seattle.

Georgina isn’t like most chick-lit protagonists. She's not shallow or an air head who only worries about her appearance but a realistically flawed woman did the best she could with what she got. She's been through hell and managed to still keep her head up.As a Succubus she feeds off her lovers' life force and if she has her way, she will not date, much less sleep with, nice guys. Not to mention she doesn't have much of a social life. She works at the Bookstore/cafe and really loves her job, but besides that and her few friends she seems lonely.
I really like her character. She's strong and compelling. She gets to the truth and she's fun to read as a character.
In this series the evil creatures really don’t appear to be all that evil. Her friends are Vampires, Demons, Angels and naturally humans.
The characters are great. I love how they are all comfortable together and the way to interact is fun to read. Their humor is perfect and it really does reel you in. If you haven't read this series yet and it's in your range, I'd read it. I loved it!
