Book Review #50 - Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid #1) by Richelle Mead

Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. 

Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.

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 can 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, and she can't get 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 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 Rating: 3.5/5
I liked this book from the very first page. Georgina was realistic and easy to relate to. I never really liked Roman from the first time he was mentioned and my favourite male character was Seth.
I thought that the writing was well done and the characters developed timely throughout. 
Although this book is the first in a series, I think it does more than just set up the story. It would still be an amazing book if it was by itself. 
The only thing I didn't like about the book was that some aspects were very predictable and easy to interpret. 
The next book in the series is Succubus Nights or Succubus On Top. There are currently 6 books so far in the series.
