Georgina Kincaid: Succubus Blues Review

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…
REVIEW(3/5 stars): After Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy, i thought to try one more of her series. Georgina Kincaid was picked. I have to admit i was expecting to read something like Vampire Academy but i a made a fool of myself.
In the book, we follow Georgina's life. She is a succubus, one of the best. At her usual days she also work as mortal at a local bookstore. At the same time we follow her mortal life, we also follow the mystery succubus life. There have been murders at the immortal ranks and looks like she will be one of the victims as well. 
I'm not really sure what to think about Georgina. As i said, i was expecting something like Vamprie Academy but this book is nothing like it. First of all, it's easily PG +18 (i didn't know that). The sex scenes were far too detailed for me. Sometimes were more than two pages long, if you can guess what i mean by detailed. I know what a succubus is. Of course i do. But i have to admit, that i didn't expect that. At Vampire Academy the scenes were a paragraph long. Nothing more. I didn't know it was over YA Reads this one. If you take away those parts and the only-sex romances i quite liked the book.  It has a really good background story, as always with Mead's books. The mystery with the murders and the life of the immortals is pretty good written. About that half book, i could guess who the bad guy was but then again it had a little surprise in the end. I also enjoyed the scenes with Georgina's immortal friends. They are hilarious. And i totally love them. Especially the two vampires and the imp.It's really a unique company. And what about the arch-demon to be buddies with an angel? I would love to see more in their relationship as well.
So if you are over 18, you want a book with mystery,action,romance and sex - Succubus Blues is for you. Keep in mind Georgina Kincaid is 6 books series. I'm currently reading Succubus On Top.

  1. I have been dying to start this series but haven't had the time

  2. Oh...i guess it's normal. There are so many books around. If you have time though, try it. No reason to read the whole six books in once.

  3. This series is definitely in my must-read!
    I love fiction like that and sex scenes don't bother me! :P

  4. Then you would love it:D They are good!

  5. I didn't mind the sex stuff but I couldn't really get into this when I read it. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood for it - I might try it again some day though. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I have been contemplating this one too since I LOVED Vampire Academy, but I am still not sure. Thanks for the review!!!
