Adult Review: Succubus on Top by Richelle Mead

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 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. . .

   WaRnInG: SPOILERS for Succubus Blues but not for Succubus on Top

    I wanted to read  Succubus on Top because I really enjoyed Georgina in Blues. I loved that even though she's a demon, she tried to feed on men who were already evil instead of fully corrupting what she called the good guys. I also enjoyed her group of paranormal friends, a vamp, an angel, an imp and her of course. They have an easy relationship even though they are giving her a hard time for being with a mortal in this installment. 

    It is such a forbidden attraction with Seth and Georgina, or Thetis as he calls her because of mythology. But they have such banter when he finally shakes off the shy and starts talking with her. They have books in common, and his family is in love with her (she is falling for them too esp the kids). 

     This book didn't take any time to get going like the first did, and that just reaffirmed what I felt about her YA series, that each book gets better instead of the second book syndrome. The new player in this one is Georgina's long time bestie Bastien, who def adds a new plot line with his own agenda for being in town. Also, Doug is acting like a crazy person, and I couldn't decide if I thought he was on drugs or if the newly introduced Alec was the one behind it. He has so much energy, but it comes out inappropriately at work, where he was never like that with customers before. His band is also on fire, which its nice to see him successful in that, but I just wonder, at what cost? 

   This was a fast paced book and it came to a point where decisions had to be made, and Georgina was brave and thinking only of others when she acted. It wrapped up well, but for sure still wanted to read the next one. It actually left me at a spot where it was more fade to black, use your imagination of one of the steamy parts of the book, and I am like really? Come on, give me some more sexy Seth. 

   I will for sure be continuing the series to get more Georgina and Seth. 

Bottom Line: Hot, fast paced sequel-- even better than the first-- with the characters I adore.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Would you date an author?
