Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses Seth Mortensen, the shy, sexy writer she's been dating, she'll drain his life force. Admittedly, the shape shifting and immortality perks of a succubus are terrific, but it's completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can't get down with the one mortal who 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 behavior, and Georgina suspects something far more demonic than double espressos. She could use an assist from Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, but he's 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. .

If you’ll remember in the review about Succubus Blues I mention there being two love interests. We get to see more of the second guy, Seth. He is Georgina’s favorite author that she meant while working in the book store. But the problem is he is human and a good guy. I know that doesn’t sound like a problem but when you’re a succubus like Georgina Kincaid and you try to stay away from the good guys so that you don’t suck their life force then dating is a problem.

In Succubus on Top, Georgina is dealing mostly with her relationship with Seth and trying to figure out how to make it work. She meets his family and sad by what she will never have. But she can’t let Seth go so it’s an emotional roller coaster between the two.

The plot or mystery if you will, is focused around the humans in Georgina’s life and how they are acting crazy as bat shit. Doug, one of Georgina’s friends and co-workers, is in a band and things really start to take off for him but he’s starting to act weird. So Georgina adds figuring out what’s wrong with to her plate.

Now if she didn’t have enough problems, Georgina’s long time incubus friend blows into town to causing problems. Bastien is the incubus in question and Georgina taught him everything he knows back in the day. He stays on her case about how boring she is now, while asking for her help.

Succubus on Top is filled with steamy and funny hi-jinks from being to end. Richelle Mead grabbed my attention with the first book and with the second, Succubus on Top she has me running to start the 3rd book.  Looking for a fun urban fantasy read? Check out the Georgina Kincaid series by Mead and you won’t be sorry. I recommend checking the series out on audio. The narration is fun and I truly believe it’s one of the main reasons I’m enjoying the series.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
