Adult Review: Succubus Heat by Richelle Mead

Succubus Heat (Georgina Kincaid #4) by Richelle Mead\
Georgina Kincaid has been a bad, bad succubus. . .
. . .which should be a good thing. But lately, thanks to her foul mood over breaking up with bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, she's been so wicked that Seattle's über-demon Jerome, decides to "outsource " Georgina to a rival—and have her spy for him in the process.
Being exiled to the frozen north—okay, Vancouver—and leaving Seth in the cozy clutches of his new girlfriend is unpleasant enough. Then Jerome is kidnapped, and all immortals under his control mysteriously lose their powers. One bright spot: with her life-sucking ability gone, there's nothing to keep Georgina from getting down and dirty with Seth—nothing apart from his girlfriend that is. Now, as the supernatural population starts turning on itself, a newly mortal Georgina must rescue her boss and figure out who's been playing them—or all hell will break loose. . .

    I started this one right after Succubus Dreams because I just had to know how things were going to turn out with Georgina and Seth. Some time has passed and Seth is still with Maddie and it hurts my heart every time I see them together. You can tell the Georgina is in just the state of depression and anger and she's really started to make Jerome pretty mad. She is sent to Canada to look into this group and also to spy on another demon for Jerome because he wants her out of his hair because he even tried to get her help and for her to see a therapist but she ended up sleeping with him so that didn't work.

    Georgina is thinking about a lot of things maybe even moving when she is back in Seattle. its so hard to see her back and forth between the anger and depression and you can tell that she is so uncomfortable almost every time she even goes into the store. She's having to face Seth because he's there all the time and since him and Maddie are officially a couple and everyone knows about it. To make it worse, no one even really knows that they were in love with one another. 

    There are times where wheres Seth and Georgina get a few moments alone with each other and Seth will still show concern for her and that makes her even more upset. She gets a few pretty harsh lines in on him but I can totally understand why she's angry and he is the one that wanted out so he has no right to say anything about how she's living her life. She is dating Dante now and she is finding a lot of moral men to to take down. Her friends totally don't approve of Dante and I can totally see why she's upset about that because they gave her such a hard time about Seth and now they're saying that she is better than Dante and that she is she is good even though that she is a demon. She used to be such an optimist and seeemed to bring out the best in others and this is really hit her hard. I know that her and Seth are just one element to it because we saw even in her human life how she made the mistakes with her husband and she regretted it so badly and that she would sell her soul that he wouldn't be in pain. We've also learned some about her and a priest that she became friends with and then cared about and that didn't have a good ending. So hard just to see how life has handed her so much bad hand after bad hand pain on top of pain.

    We do get to meet a lot of new characters since she has been sent to Canada. I'm unsure when she's up there because I miss Carter and Hugh and her other friends. there is of course more going on behind the scenes then she even knows about. the whole thing with Niphon in the last book is still in the back of her mind-- just wondering if there's something up with her contract because he came after her so hard. And now there's even more for her to worry about because she's right in the middle of another supernatural issue because she always seems to have trouble around her and she is always looking for a solution because that's the kind of person that she is

    When she loses her powers, I got to see a vulnerable side of Georgina, because she is suddenly afraid. She can't shape shift and she believes for a while that she can even die. In her depression, she was thinking that immortality was too long. That the all consuming pain she felt after losing Seth and realizing what she was missing being in a relationship. Being with Dante does make her more cynical and dark. But she feels that he understands, and in some ways, he does. But in others you can tell that she isn't as happy with him as she was with Seth.

   There's a lot to put into words for this one and of course and I can't wait for the next one. I felt like there was a lot of character growth but Georgina of course is still really really struggling but not having sex in her life and having to watch him with Maddie.

     I was pretty surprised that one of the characters who came on the scene in order to help solve the whole issue with Jerome as well as the Immortals in kind of a stasis not having their powers. It definitely adds a new dynamic to Georgina's living situation as well as adding more depth to the plot

    In some ways I got to see a few ways the story line with Georgina and Seth might end up playing out. I got some scenes that I've been hoping for four blocks but it also brought around as much negative as positive in ways that Georgina really never even imagined. Of course I kept in mind the visions that Nick gave her in the last book and I kept my fingers crossed because I knew some of the things that she have longed for in her very long immortal life.

    I kept getting more reinforcement in this one that Georgina is really a problem solver and a go getter. Where a bunch of people will tell her not to get involved or tells her they can't help. if she sees a problem in front of her she is going to want to do everything she can to solve it. This is one of the things that help make these books so fast paced. one of the ways I can describe it is she is like a house from the TV program house where if there was medical puzzle he would do anything and everything to get the answer and she's the same way.

     This one ended much like the other ones in the series where the big plot lines from this one are tied up pretty well. and then we are given a new problem to work over in our minds as to how in the world everything is going to be handled in the next book and how miss mead is going to get us there.

    I am lucky in that I am reading this after all the books in the series are released and I have a nice little hole in my reading schedule where I can binge on these and I'm going to start the next one as we speak

Bottom Line: Great book in this addictive series.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
