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. . ....

    4.5 stars "I wish you could choose who you love," he said bitterly. "Because I wouldn't choose you, you know. But, here we are. I can't stop thinking about you. I feel like there's some pull to you I can't fight."

    01.24.14 The Buddy re-Read continues! Woohoo!Georgina Kincaid can:A. Eat endangered baby seals for breakfastB. Cripple Benedict Cumberbatch ending Sherlock Mid-seasonC. Kidnap Susan Ee to keep her from finishing AngelfallD. Hoard every gram of coffee in the worldE. All of the aboveAND I'D STILL LOVE HER.---------------------------4 STARS"You had your heart broken much?"He paused. "Of course. Everyone does. Part of life.""Tell me her name. I'll kick her ass. I don't want anyone hurting you."HOW TO ENJOY THIS BOOK✔ Do not judge it by its cover. Sure it has Richelle Mead's name emblazoned on it but really, a girl wearing a shiny (silver, yeesh) dress holding a goblet with that cheesy title doesn't inspire one to give this thoroughly entertaining series a chance. Taken at facecover value, this (as with the other GK books) does tend to blend in with the multitude of stereotypical PNRs out there but the characters here are anything but. This installment in particular portrayed the relationship between Seth and Georgina with impressive depth and maturity... well, as much as a human writer and succubus I imagine could have a mature, functioning relationship.Imagine Seth, the mild-mannered, socially awkward hero and Georgina, the lusty, hot demon who has sex for a living. As in, she needs sex to live. As in she can't have sex with Seth without killing him.✔ Do not over-think the bigger plot. This installment deals with Doug's mysterious transformation to Super Doug and a zealous, morally incorruptible woman being made to fall in lust by an incubus named Bastien. You can practically see where things are heading five chapters in on both story lines but unless you're looking for a gasp worthy plot-twist, it wouldn't really deter you from enjoying this one.✔ Have a PNR binge: vampires, werewolves, angels... know what just pick any romance series, throw in cowboys, bikers, billionaires in the mix just to make it more fun. Read them in succession then read this. Because chances are the alpha hero that densely populates every other romance genre will start to become stale and a character like Seth Mortensen will just knock you off your feet. True, he might take a bit of getting used to, and one might even accuse him of being a doormat but dude...He has a teddy bear named Damocles and makes a mean pancake. And he never gets jealous. How can you not give that man some love?✔ Re-watch some of Joss Whedon's early BtVS episodes for a better appreciation of this brand of humor. What's that? You don't know what BtVS is? Then I'd light a candle for your soul, you poor, deprived child."You would be worth going to Guam for.""What about Omaha?""No one's worth going to Omaha for."✔ Go to iTunes. Purchase Fiona Apple's Tidal album. You're welcome.True the demons' effort to tempt man into sinning here was fuzzy (because it sounded an awful lot like Georgie and Bastien were doing the Lord's work bringing down Dana), the story lines were scattered and needs better coherence (just like this review) and I may have figured out how this series will end but if possible, those faults only led me to better appreciate the small details."I wish you could choose who you love," he said bitterly. "Because I wouldn't choose you, you know. But, here we are. I can't stop thinking about you. I feel like there's some pull to you I can't fight."Says some French guy.I'm not a fan of the trope where I sense this series is going to go, but for the here and now, I'm just excited for when Georgina and Seth finally get to do it. Because for someone who refuses to get jealous, someone so secure of himself, I have a feeling Seth's gonna bring the thunder.-------------------------Seth's Shirt List:FroggerThundercatsRattWriters Do It At Their DeskPunky BrewsterFlash Gordon (awesome)Captain and TenilleSpamYeah, I did that.

    Although I am a little bit disappointed in Georgina (I'll elaborate later), this book still deserves 4 stars. In the second book of the series Georgina continues her adventures. Her close friend and fellow incubus Bastien is visiting and needs her help in seducing a conservative figure; Doug is involved with some strange people and acts unlike himself; finally, Georgina now has a mortal boyfriend with whom she can't be intimate. Once again, Richelle Mead delivers engaging and entertaining story, sexy, romantic and funny. However, I have to admit, this book was a little thin on mystery. There was no convincing build-up to discovery we saw in the first Georgina book. Nevertheless I am ready to forgive this. What I can't forgive is Georgina's (view spoiler)[betrayal of Seth. You would think that after centuries of regrets over the way she treated her husband, Georgina learned her lesson. Unfortunately, she didn't. What is even more disappointing is how easily both Georgina and Seth forgave this very serious in my eyes act. It is hard for me to be understanding of flippant cheaters. (hide spoiler)] I hope she will redeem herself in future books. Otherwise I don't think I will be able to like her as much as I liked her in the first book and continue on with the series.

    Wow. I really liked the first book in this series,Succubus Blues, but I didn't expect this one to exceed the first. Succubus On Top is great. It's funny, it's sexy, it's a good mystery, the characters are very likable... I can't praise this book enough.We first met Georgina Kincaid, a succubus living in Seattle, in Succubus Blues. Aside from being a temptress employed by Hell, Georgie is an assistant manager at a local bookstore. In this book, she meets up with a very old friend, an incubus she tutored in the ways of seduction a few centuries ago, and she has to figure out what kind of strange drug that's messing up her mortal friends' lives.I think it's the cast of characters that keeps me hooked on Richelle Mead's books. Georgina is beautifully created; she's interesting, funny, and realistically flawed. Her fellow employees of the dark are fantastic supporting characters, from Cody and Peter, the cheerful vampires, to her archdemon boss, Jerome, who looks strangely like John Cusack. I'm really fascinated by Carter, the angel who is, strangely enough, Jerome's best friend. Aside from the fact that he's an angel who could double as a grunge kid, there's just so much under the surface.And then there's Seth, Georgina's mortal, novelist boyfriend. I'm really not fond of novel boyfriends who are just so perfect, but Seth... I want Seth for myself. He's incredibly smart, creative, witty... I really love the tension that Mead sets up between Georgie and Seth. As a succubus, Georgina can't have sex with or even kiss Seth deeply without sucking away his life energy. I get the feeling this series of books is going to deal a LOT with how they can maintain their relationship while resisting the urge to jump each other's bones.The mystery itself is pretty good, better than the first. The ending feels a bit rushed, but that's forgivable. Now... to figure out how I'm going to make it to October 2008, when the next book comes out.

    I took down half of my drink in one gulp. “Sometimes I look around, and I can’t believe this is my life.” OKAY. That was really weird. It was an entertaining book but I don't know. It lacked something to make my heart race. I mean we're dealing with something dark here. The evil forces are not very... well scary for me.Georgina's relationship with Seth is really unrealistic. I mean, yeah I know, SETH is freaking perfect and he wasn't doormat but I still can't believe he can forgive THAT easily after well.. being cheated to. I mean, maybe love does make you do that, I mean still accept a person after doing a terrible mistake. BUT. I still can't suspend my disbelief. I was mostly sad for them both. What do you do when you finally found what you need just to know that it'll be never within your reach? Anyway, I liked it when Georgina spends time with Seth's family. It was just adorable. The romantic aspect aside, there was a plot. It was crazy. I burst out laughing when Dana's confession came. It was so weird! I did not see that coming. :O I also liked the secondary characters. I particularly love Carter. So yeah that's all. Recommended for mature readers because there was a lot of extreme scenes going on.

    It gets better, I won’t bother writing a lengthy review about this. Wow I love this book, Richelle Mead keep giving me more reasons to love her. The writing is amazing and the plot is just great. The characters are one of a kind, Bastein the newest character is one hot iccubus. The romance did not overshadow the paranormal and vice versa, the plot was portrayed beautifully. I love that Georgina works in a bookstore and is crazy about books, makes her character so relatable.Spoiler alertThe only thing I didn’t like is that I expected killing Sol a lot harder than that, not a one blow thingy.

    I don't suggest reading this if you haven't read this, because it contains spoilers, I'm sorry. I'm a scatterbrain today (even more than normal) so this is basically me saying random things that pop into my head. (and spelling errors will have to wait for when I get home)It's been a while since I read a book that didn't feel like I was reading at all. The pages just keep coming, my mind stays focussed on the story and I'm always sad I have to put it down. I'm still in the middle of a 4-or-5-stars debate with myself, so my rating may change soon.What's to say... I didn't like the red crystal part of the book, it felt a little bit like 'we need at least one supernatural thing to happen here' and the parts with Dana (I'm suddenly not sure about her name anymore for some reason) were a bit boring.I know it's a little odd, giving a book a good rating, while having quite a few issues with it. But so many amazing things make up for the 'bad' stuff. But I will keep my biggest objection for last...Georgina and Seth. I lost count of how many times I sat there, melting in my comfy chair. I gasped, I swooned. Thetis... my god, (this is my love for pet names surfacing) I'll marry the first guy who comes up with something that appropriate for me. The final scenes were very, very enjoyable ^^ One other thing: Seth is loyal, but a little bit too loyal for his own good. I've seen doormats giving up quicker than he does. I know it must be hard for him, but seriously...I love and hate Bastien. I really liked everything about him, he's a good friend to Georgina. From the moment he walked through the door I wanted to yell "DON'T YOU DARE TURN INTO SETH" and then when he finally did I wanted to gouge my eyes out with a spoon. Don't get me wrong, I'm dusgusted with G as well for falling for it, but what he did was so below the belt we need shovels and a flashlight. And then Bastien goes ahead and throws it into Seth's face, before G gets a chance to tell him, that's even worse.So... I'm already sure the next book will rip out my heart, complete with a stampede running over it and tearing it to pieces.

    Richelle, tell us how you really feel! She holds nothing back about how and what she feels towards conservatives. It became a little too much for me. But with that aside I'm still not sure why I continue to read this series. It's not really anthing that I'm in to. Seth's and Georgina's relationship is the MOST unrealistic relationship that I have yet encountered in a book. Seth's reactions seem so far from reality it's irritating. Ok so Seth accepts that she's a succubi and she needs to have sex with others to stay alive. I'm stretching here but MAYBE I can see a guy being ok with this (not really though). Not only is she banging all these other guys but she and Seth are not able to be together. I decided that I could overlook it for the most part. BUT then she cheated on him and his reaction was "I'm just glad you got to be with someone that you care about." Really? Seriously? Am I supposed to believe that this would be the rational and realistic reaction of a guy? I almost threw my book down when I read it because it was just so absurd. I can't imagine that happening...EVER! Forgiveness yes but not this. The plot is centered around Georgina's and Seth's frustration with the lack of sex/intimacy with each other and of course the strange behavior of her friends. It didn't keep my attention. There was no danger or sense of urgency. No suspense. I feel like I'm reading about a woman who works retail with a really active sex life. Georgina has no good qualities, nothing that makes her special, except I guess she'considered good at sex. She's nothing like Rose in Mead's Vampire Academy series (which is the reason why I decided to give this series a try). How does a book that's about succubus, vampires, and imps lack a sense of darkness, evil, and edginess? If you don't mind the lack of a good storyline or lack of strong characters then this is the series for you.

    I LOVE RICHELLE MEAD!!!Mead is one of my favourite authors. I absolutely love her voice. Whether she writes YA or UF, she’s able to capture me entirely until I flip that last page. It’s amazing how quickly I can devour one of her novels, and it’s almost unfair since she spends so much time writing them!Succubus on Top is the second book in the Georgina Kincaid series and I loved it! Seth and Georgie are in a stable relationship, one where they go on romantic dates, spend time with Seth’s family and do all the other great things that couples do in a relationship. But there’s always that unspoken and incessant need that has yet to be fulfilled. Would the sex be worth it, even if it means knocking off a few years of Seth’s life? Can Georgina live with the knowledge that she is killing Seth? Talk about buzz kill!I’ll admit I’m still not overly enthused about Seth. He’s too shy and too quiet for me, but I can definitely believe the romance between Seth and Georgina. I liked Bastian. I thought it was cool to see an incubus in action, even though he wasn’t as suave as he thought he was. He brought a sort of companionship that Georgina needed, especially since he was familiar with her line of work. She could share things with him that she couldn’t necessarily share with say, Carter or even Seth.Needless to say, I loved this book! It was smart, sexy, and funny! I always forget how hilarious this series is, so whenever I come back to it, it’s always a good time. I can’t wait to readSuccubus Dreams ! I heard it’s a good one!

    Problems problems problems....Georgina, even though she is in love, after a long while, is not able to have sex with her boyfriend, the nerd writer Seth. On the other hand, Seth should feel comfortable with the fact that his girlfriend will have sex with other men, so that she stays alive, but not with him.... As all these were not enough, Georgina's best friend - a male succubus - arrives and asks for her help...Well written and enjoyable, an original Richelle Mead story!

    Succubus On Top is the second book in the Georgina Kincaid Series and my least favorite so far. I think that in some ways, this book did not live up to my standards and expectations for it. It didn't really leave me feeling good about Georgina.I liked that Seth and Georgina were together. All the sweet moments with his family brought a wholesome (for lack of a better word) factor to the novel. At the end, when Georgina and Seth find a way to have sex but not left me feeling good about them, especially after everything that happened with Bastien (I'll get to him later). Again, I loved seeing Carter, Hugh, Cody, and Peter.Now, the big things I didn't like about this book all revolved around one person: Bastien. First, I hated, absolutely hated, that he and Georgina had sex. I blame him for starting it because he kissed her and then tempted her by taking Seth's shape, but I also blame Georgina. She should not have ever slept with him, especially knowing that it wasn't Seth. I felt like she was cheating on Seth because she chose to sleep with Bastien; he wasn't like the other guys she sleeps with because she has to sleep with them because she's a succubus. I also didn't like that she continued to refer to him as Seth while she was having sex with Bastien. That's what got me the most; she knew it wasn't Seth, yet she did it anyway and continued to delude herself, making herself think it was Seth. Then, when Bastien was so rude at Georgina's house the next day to Seth, I really wanted to smack him. The second thing I didn't like was the whole Bastien/Dana thing. I felt like that part was way to drawn out and took up too much of the novel.Aside from those two things, and the blow job she gives the guy at the club, I liked this novel. I did not like Succubus On Top as much as it's predecessor, Succubus Blues, but I have faith (and hope!) that Succubus Dreams will be even better and live up to my expectations and the standards I have set regarding Richelle Mead.

    3.5 starsI won't lie. The beginning of the book brought back memories of a certain movie...But let's not make this all about Georgie and Seth. Doug's been acting weird lately and Georgie's old friend, Bastien, is in town for a special mission requiring her assistance. Ugh. Who am I kidding. I don't want to talk about Doug and Bastien. I caught on to their problems way before Georgie figured it out. What I really, really want to talk about is my problem with how the whole thing with (view spoiler)[Georgie and Bastien (hide spoiler)] was glossed over. I feel that Seth has been so lenient with her, and inasmuch as I love him, I hate that he was so darn good and understanding! I wanted fury! Jealousy! Relationship drama! I don't hate Georgie for what she did but I can't help but feel that she got away with it. Favourite parts:1. The flashbacks. I love nostalgia, and I connected to Georgie more in her past life. I love the scenes with Seth and Georgie, I really do, but (view spoiler)[the memory of Letha and Kyriakos (hide spoiler)] gave me goosebumps and heart flutters.2. The scenes with the gang. Gawd I love Jerome and Carter. 3. Georgie's present. *blush*4. Painting with the Mortensens. Up until this book I thought the series was a little too chick-lit for my reading mood but towards the end I finally saw the angst building up. I"m probably just saying this because I missed Roman but I liked this a little less than the first book. But I'm definitely hooked, evident in my unplanned reading of Succubus Dreams. Can I just finish the series and do a series review instead?

    3.5, closer to 4 though.I liked this book more than I thought I would. The female main character, Kincaid, is still pretty awesome. The story was maybe a bit boring at one point, but it picked back up after a while, so it was ok.The guy isn't what I expected though. I haven't decided if I like him or not. He's certainly something else though.All in all, if you liked the first book, then you'll like this one as well. If not, well... nothing really changes, so not really worth trying for more :P

    Two down, four books to go.Ah, Georgina, I’m loving you more and more. I’m so glad I get to listen to each installment whenever I want, instead of having to wait a long time between release dates. After listening to Succubus on Top, it’s safe to say I’m completely, 100% hooked!There’s so much that goes on in Succubus on Top, but Mead does a fantastic job weaving it all together. Seriously, Georgina is one busy lady! Even though there’s a lot of different threads, it’s all tight and pulls together nicely.I enjoyed Georgia’s wit and sass in the first book, but it seems to have gotten even better. There was definitely some laughing going on while I was listening.Something I absolutely love about this series, is Mead doesn’t pussyfoot around what Georgina is. She’s a succubus who needs to have sex with men in order to survive, and of course to meet her quota of souls for Hell. I think the author does a great job showing the difference between sex and intimacy, because her heart belongs to one person no matter how many men she bangs.I think Doug managed to snag the position of favorite secondary character. Though, Carter might edge him out. That could easily change, because they’re all entertaining.Succubus on Top is fun and exciting. I’m definitely looking forward to the next installment, because I’m incredibly curious about what’s in store for Georgina.

    Actual Rating: 3.8 StarsSuccubus on Top is not engaging as Succubus Blues but still theres the occasional moment of brilliance, funny dialogue, agonizing sexual tension between Georgina and Seth (Sobs, I literally cried again) & interesting mythology references. I wholly appreciate that in the past two books Richelle Mead emphasized a massive and healthy views about sexuality, feminism and a bunch of important talks.

    Actually 4.5 Stars for the awesomeness that is Seth MortensenThis is the second book in the Georgina Kincaid series. Georgina is a succubus, which by definition means she has to have sex to survive, who is in love with a mortal. Unfortunately, their relationship has to be a chaste one because if Georgina makes love with him, she will suck the life out of him until he's dead. This is the premise for what is one of the most beautiful love stories I've ever read; why, because they can't have sex. Let me elaborate. Seth doesn't love Georgina because she's hot and great in the sack, he genuinely loves her for who she is. Their relationship is not at all based on sex, and that's what makes it beautiful to me. I mean, I don't know know about the rest of you but most of the books I read ascribe to the first comes sex, then comes marriage school of thought. The characters usually fall for the sex before they fall for the person. It's so nice to see a romance can actually blossom without it (in a book, there's no way this would work in real life, but it's nice to dream, heh!). Another central dogma of most books these days are also bad boys. In the post-Damon Salvatore world we live in, bad boys are the hot topic, they sell books and are the epitome of sexy. Well, move over dark and tortured sexy bad boy souls, Seth Mortensen has arrived.(an actual cute author named Joshua Ferris, no idea who he is, but he looks exactly like I imagined Seth.)Seth is so far from being a bad boy, it's not even funny. He is geeky, sweet, sometimes painfully shy but he has the most beautiful heart. To tell you the truth, I care more about Seth than I do Georgina. Of course, a romance like theirs is going to have problems, basically, their inability to have sex is, well, painful to read about. I swear I could practically feel the frustration dripping from every page. (view spoiler)[To add to Seth's appeal, he is also an incredibly forgiving soul. Georgina screwed up big time and when Seth found out, I was worried that this was the end. I thought he would be pissed and heartbroken and betrayed, and he did feel that way, but he forgave anyway. That part of the book gave me all sorts of conflicting feelings. I was so relieved he wasn't mad when the truth got out, but I was also like:what the hell dude, stand up for yourself, don't let this go; then I was like, oh you are such a beautiful person, I love you so much for forgiving her. It may seem like he's being a doormat, but he's not. He truly understands what it means for Georgina to be a succubus, understands the violations and degradation of the job, something that Georgina's probably gotten numb to after all these years. He tells her that every time he thinks about what she does, he imagines her being raped over and over again and it kills him (I love you Seth). But Georgina better clean up her act, 'cause one more mistake and she's out, our boy ain't no doormat. (hide spoiler)].So far this review has mostly been me gushing over Seth but other things happened to. Some of Georgina's human friends seem to be acting strangely and dangerously, and basically partying like it's 1969. Something or someone is causing it, and our girl is on the case. She may debauch mortal men for a living but nobody messes with her mortal friends and gets away with it. At the same, an old friend comes to town and needs Georgina's help to debauch this bigoted religious leader of a sort and basically ruin her reputation, but she's turning out to be a tough sell. Basically, Georgina has her work cut out for her on many fronts, including taking care of the bookstore while every one seems to be calling in sick, while having a sweet if complicated relationship with our favorite fictional author. Nothing our girl can't handle, but it's a good thing Georgina's really great at multitasking!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Re-read with Ash Wednesday, Bailey and Tandie:This is a series that deserves a re-read. Wow the extra stuff I picked up the second time through. Let's just say that while I really was sure where the story line was going I definitely missed some of the biggest hints the first time through.Seth is still my favorite Beta book boyfriend, Georgina could do almost anything, including but not limited to stealing my husband, and I'd still love her, Bastien can rot in hell or Omaha, Carter is my bright shining star of hope and Jerome I see now what you are doing....I'm mad you are wearing John Cussack's face while you do it."How's your high-wire act with Seth going?"I turned to him almost having forgotten that reference. "Bad""Did you look down?""Worse than that. I fell off. I fell off and hit bottom."The angel regarded me with this steady gaze. "Then you'd better get back on."Carter <3<3<3 you. You give that little nudge whenever it is needed to get our girl back on track.So much better the second time around. I'm bumping it up to 4 stars, just for foreshadowing awesomeness Original Review July 20133.75 Stars It got and extra 0.25 stars because Seth is so damn cute and I love his t-shirt collection.Georgina made another deal with the devil, now she has to put her feelings aside and go after some good souls for Hell. But it is worth it if Seth remembers her and they can try having a relationship. That comes with its own problems. What is a succubus to do when she can’t make love to the one person she really wants to. Also there seems to be a new immortal in town, some weird drug activity and an old friend needs a little help.So I realized why I had a few issue with this book and it all comes down to fidelity. Yes yes I know Georgina is a succubus but I guess I thought if she was in love she would have more conflicts sleeping around. But that would perhaps make her whinier and that wouldn’t particularly be entertaining. I really just want her to be open and honest with Seth and currently that doesn’t seem to be happening.Seth is as cute as ever. I really just want to eat him up. He really loves Georgina and is willing to put up with so much just to be close to her. She on the other had is still so closed off about her past and really isn’t being honest with him and even though there were a few glimpses into her past I’ll I thought about is that she is making the same mistakes all over…..and then she did.There is some action on the side as she sleuths around to figure out what is causing Doug and some others around her to act so erratic. She is also helping her former partner in crime an incubus pull off a high scoring political figure to save his job. But let me be honest….I’m in this for the relationship of Georgina and Seth. I love it I have to admit and so much of it was a-freaking-dor-able. Until Georgina faltered and made the same mistakes she made in her past, which was infuriating. But, I liked the story even if some of it was predictable I was still entertained and I totally enjoyed the ending of this book. I still see some underlying plots going that will most likely carry through to the last book and I’m trying to figure out how all of them will work in but this was a solid follow up to the first book.

    This series is quirky and riddled with humor as our beloved succubus Georgina Kincaid attempts to have a relationship with author Seth, fulfill her duties as a succubus and handle her day job at a local bookstore in downtown Seattle.In Succubus on Top, Georgina becomes concerned when her co-worker Doug’s behavior changes and thinks there may be something supernatural at work. Bastien, her best friend and alluring incubus needs her help corrupting a conservative talk show host and her relationship with Seth is getting complicated. All of these threads are interwoven throughout the tale and laced with humor.Georgina is a complicated succubus and I found myself adoring her even as I was occasional annoyed. She is curious, flawed and has this ability to get things done. She is keenly aware of things around her, and by nature a fixer. Her life is complicated and I cannot imagine not being able to have an intimate relationship with someone when it sucks the life out of your partner. She makes mistakes frequently, but recognizes them and is brutally honest even at her own detriment.Seth is geeky, socially awkward and for some reason I find him incredibly sexy. These two create intimacy without sex and it has a depth to it that I find endearing and oddly romantic.Bastien, her bestie is just how I picture an incubus but Mead shows us a softer, more vulnerable side.. Bastien is without a doubt selfish but his impish charm keeps you from wanting to hit him over the head.Georgina enlists the help of her supernatural friends to determine what is happening to Doug. The case was filled with twists so of course she quickly found herself in danger. Carter, the angel is perhaps my favorite character, and I really want more of this quiet, mysterious soul. Their unique friendship grounds the series and their interactions are filled with snark and humor. Despite how different they all are, I adore that they have formed this kinship and care for one another.I am listening to this series on audio and feel it is the perfect story for this format. Elisabeth Rodgers does an excellent job of giving each character a unique voice and captures their personalities. This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Book Reviewer

    Succubus on Top is a solid, positive continuation of the Georgina Kincaid series.It continues the adventures of Georgina Kincaid and her immortal demon world. Old friends are back for this second installment. The plot was better executed in this version.The character of Georgina continues to break the stereotypical puritanical mold that most romantic fiction adheres to and yet remain likable.As always, the writing is witty, interesting and well crafted.

    I really love this series. Georgina's adventures are always exciting and often laugh out loud funny.

    Georgina Kincaid series Reading Order"I'm a succubus. My entire existence relies on making people - men in particular - believe and see what they want in me. I can switch from simpering virgin to sultry dominatrix in a heartbeat. All it takes is a bit of shape-shifting and a dash of playacting." Succubus on Top was a phenomenal follow-up up to Succubus Blues. I am so in love with the Georgina Kincaid series and I'm only two books into the series. The characters and the storyline are phenomenal. Most of all I love Georgie's witty and quirky internal monologue. It adds a lot of humor to the story's dark undertones. Once again Richelle Mead adds her magical touch to a book and it becomes instant book crack.To recap what's happened so far, Georgina Kincaid is a succubus, damned to sleep with men for all of eternity, suck out their life force (while at the same time slicing off a few years of their life) and steal their souls. Even though she is immortal, she needs this life force in order to survive, shapeshift, etc. However, for a long time she has been able to fly under the radar and do only the bare minimum, doing just enough to keep herself alive. Georgie has a conscious and has only been sleeping with scuzzy, sleazy men. That is, until the events in book one led her to pick up the succubus reins and actually do the work she's supposed to. Now, in book two, she's back in the succubus game going after attractive, good men and seducing them.There's just one problem. Seth. Georgie is with Seth.Seth Mortensen and Georgie have just started dating. I hate to even call it dating because the devotion they have for each other and the connection between them runs so deep that it makes dating sound like too light of a term. But I'll go with dating. So, they're together - secretly. But due to the nature of whatGeorgie is, they can't be together intimately. HUGE BUMMER - for them and for the reader. I was sexually frustrated for them. Succubus on Top focuses on Georgie and Seth's relationship as they try to navigate through the uncharted waters of succubus/human togetherness. Come to find out - it's hard (in more ways than one). "You can't honestly think you can have a future with him. Or that you two can stay chaste forever. For Christ's sake, even if you can keep your hands off him, no human male's going to stay celibate for long. Especially one with a large fan base.""A small part of this was because I didn't have a good track record with serious relationships. The larger part was that doing much more than hand-holding with a human inevitably lead to me sucking away some of his life. But hey, all couples have their stumbling blocks, right?" Georgie works at the local bookstore, Emerald City (sort of like a corporate bookstore like Barnes and Noble). In her spare time she hangs out with her devilish gang, all of whom I found rather amusing and entertaining. Hugh is an imp, whose main job is to collect souls for the dark side. But he daylights as a plastic surgeon. We have Peter, a vampire, who is domestically talented, loves hosting parties and makes a mean souffle. Then there's Cody, another much younger vampire and Peter's apprentice, and he's super goofy.So much happens in Succubus on Top. There are several storylines going on at one time. I don't say that in a bad way, it actually works quite well (as if I'd expected less from Richelle Mead). Georgie notices that her friend, Doug, and his band are doing extremely well and garnering a lot of attention in the Seattle music world - like, really freakishly well. But that's not all, Doug's personality has changed overnight to this cocky, energetic, happy-go-lucky guy with no fear. Other members of the band and her coworkers also exhibit similar traits. All of their talents are amplified and enhanced and Georgie starts to wonder whether there is something supernatural afoot.If that's not enough for her to deal with, Georgie's best friend from centuries past, Bastien, shows up from Detroit with a plan to take down a radio talk show host. Not just any talk show host, Dana Dailey, a right-wing conservative talk show host and head of this organization. Bastien enlists Georgie's help in his Dana Dailey takedown, despite her reluctance. Both of them shapeshift into a blonde-haired brother and sister, Mitch and Tabitha, in an attempt to fit in with their suburban surroundings. Their first undercover reconnaissance involves a "Barbecue in November" themed party. At this party, Georgie gets cornered by a group of suburban Stepford wives and they grill her on her stamping abilities. This whole scene was so funny. Georgie was so uncomfortable. This was so not Georgie's style. "Gee, it looks time consuming," I told them, wishing desperately that I was somewhere else. I was sure I could have held my own in a cigar and lawn mower conversation better than a stamping one.""Do you guys work?" I asked, wondering at their frequent use of "all day." A century ago, I wouldn't have given it a thought. But this was the age of the so-called modern woman. We weren't supposed to lounge around in parlors and pass out from wearing corsets." In addition to the Doug and Bastien situations, Georgie is battling with her feelings for Seth and with the guilt that comes with her job as a succubus. "I questioned whether I was in love yet. How would I know? What was love anyway? I ticked off a list as my hands held tightly to his back. Affection. Connection. Understanding. Acceptance. All these things he gave me. Those were parts of love. All these things he offered freely, no matter how terrible each new discovery about me was. I wondered whether I returned as much as I received. Did I have any right to be in this relationship? Somehow I doubted it, yet it made me want him all the more." Georgie left the mortal world with guilt on her shoulders after she cheated on her husband. When an imp made her an offer of immortality, she couldn't refuse it. She wanted to escape her sad reality and start over. However, for centuries her life is filled with meaningless love connections and empty feelings. Until Seth. He lit up her world in an instant. Seth and Georgie are on fire. There is this sort of innocence to their relationship, not because they haven't had sex, but because neither of them know what to do with the depth of their feelings for each other. "...being with you feels so right...like it's always been meant to"The feel of Seth's body curled by mine under the covers was tantalizing, a cruel whisper of the restrictions around us." All of these storylines come together and at the end I was left scrambling for book three, wanting more! Seth is one of my most favorite book boyfriends. Why? Well, I'll tell you. He has this quiet demeanor, but when he speaks it is powerful. The way he communicates with Georgie is absolutely breathtaking. He says some of the sweetest, most beautiful things to her that made my heart melt. But it's his patience and self control that has me swooning. He is so incredibly understanding and handles what she does exceptionally well. I cannot wait to move on to book 3, Succubus Dreams. I've been told that it is a doozy and will knock me on my behind and make scream and cry and drop dramatically on my bed yelling, "WHY WHY WHY!" Sounds perfect._________________________Find more of my reviews and other bookish things here:✥ My blog Reading Books Like a Boss ✥ Like on Facebook ✥ Follow on Twitter ✥ Subscribe by Email

    Nu chiar la fel de dinamică din anumite puncte de vedere, dar, cu siguranță, la fel de superbă ca prima carte! Poate datorită a ceea ce este sau în pofida acestui lucru - un sucub ce sucește mințile bărbaților, îndeplinindu-le cele mai ascunse fantezii -, nu prea s-a bucurat de prezența feminină, înconjurându-se numai de masculi. Oriunde dădeai de Georgina, fii sigur că mai mereu era însoțită de cel puțin unul sau toți prietenii săi, fie ei muritori sau nemuritori, bărbați. De fiecare dată, femeile au părut să o evite, să o confrunte sau, pur și simplu, să nu-i acorde prea multă atenție, ea răspunzându-le cu aceeași monedă. Dar, în acest volum, descoperim că nu este chiar așa. Tipa noastră are mare grijă în cine se încrede, deși mai sunt situații când dă cu bâta în baltă destul de rău.Având în vedere ce s-a întâmplat data trecută, viața ei personală pare să o ia pe un făgaș mai... normal. Dar nelipsit de câte o bombă ce pică parcă din neant, ca și cum cineva vrea cu dinadins să o mai aducă la realitate uneori. Relațiile cu cei din jur se cam zdruncină din cauza unor evenimente neașteptate, dar sentimentele aruncate în joc sunt mult mai puternice, ca totul să se năruie peste noapte. Nu pot să nu observ că, din cele povestite de ea, dar și dacă luăm în considerare prezentul ei, nu doar trecutul, mereu a avut o atracție pentru cei înclinați spre artă, fie că vorbim despre muzică, pictură, lingvistică sau scris. Poate și pentru că ea este o astfel de creatură, una căreia îi place dansul, lectura și alte îndeletniciri... artistice.Dragostea pare să-și fi început deja propriul plan, venind însoțită de nelipsitele sale amice, printre care durerea, regretul și tristețea, presărându-le cu grijă din loc în loc, pentru ca cei vizați să le simtă din plin efectul amețitor.- Nici un "dar". Ai încredere în mine că sunt în stare să mă controlez. În plus de asta, nu sunt cu tine pentru perspectiva sexului. Știi foarte bine. Sunt cu tine de dragul tău.- Cum poate fi de-ajuns?Niciodată nu fusese de ajuns pentru nici un bărbat cu care fusesem.- Uite-așa..., a spus, m-a prins de bărbie, iar emoția din ochii lui m-a topit pe dinăuntru. Pentru că mă simt așa de firesc cu tine... de parcă așa ar fi fost dintotdeauna sortit să fie. O dată în viața mea mă faci să cred într-o forță superioară.

    Spoilers and cursing below. Read at your own risk.I didn't like Georgina in the first book but I liked Seth well enough that I wanted to give it another try. In a sense, I'm glad I did because now I definitely know Georgina is not the kind of heroine I'd ever get behind. To paraphrase Dickens, these pages didn't show Georgina as the hero of her own life, in fact, they showed her as the villain.You see, Georgina is how imagine people like Bernie Maddoff must be like. Not the kind that makes one big mistake and learns from it, but the weak, selfish and self-serving type that does bad things every day but keeps justifying it. They don't stand for anything and prefer to harm millions of others with their actions. They think that doing evil deeds doesn't make them bad people, that filling guilty or having rare pangs of conscience makes up for their behavior. IT DOESN'T. They are pieces of shit who always take the easy way out.Believe it or not, the fact that she was 'doing her job' while being with Seth didn't bother me as much because he was fine with that. I hate the 'I can't be with you for your own good' plot and I'm glad that Georgina accepted Seth's decision. I thought it was weird - Seth seemed to good to be true - but I took that as face value. I felt a little creeped out reading about her escapades (she seemed like a reluctant prostitute doing her job) but whatever. However, she showed her true colors with the Bastian episode. She knew it was wrong but couldn't say no (the justification: we evil people are not used to denying ourselves.) I couldn't believe that she would do the same thing that first destroyed her marriage! Doesn't this woman ever learn? Or are her masochists' tendencies so overdeveloped that she thought that she needed Seth's punishment in lieu of her husband's? Does she think this would make it alright?And I like how she pulls the 'evil' people card when it suits her. I think I would respect her more if she truly enjoyed damning people but it clear she doesn't. But instead of being strong enough to try to find a way around it, she does her job in her merry way and then pretends to feel bad about it now and then.At the end though, what made me despise was when she resorted to drugs (that ambrosia was pretty much like a drug) to resolve a freaking problem at work! As always, she took the easy way out! (I've never worked in a bookstore and I think I could have found a way around her problem without taking drugs.) Instead of finding a solution by herself and maybe dealing with a mistake as a professional would have, she took the ambrosia because she needed to prove to herself that her only talent wasn't sucking c*ck. Poor little Georgina, so lacking of confidence that she needs drugs to bolster her ego. Boohoo! And even worse, she gave it to a person who she knew could be hurt by it! How would she know that Jodi wouldn't become addicted at once? It freaking happens!!!I like characters that learn from their mistakes and do the right thing even when it's hard to do. It's obvious that Georgina is not this type. I feel sorry for Seth but I'm not willing to be in Georgina's head even for him. Right now, I feel like I should wash my brain with bleach, she made me feel so disgusted.

    “I want pancakes.”“What? Right now?”“No. For breakfast.”“Oh.” He yawned. “You’d better get up early then.”“Me? I’m not going to make them.”“Yeah?” His sleepy voice carried mock sympathy. “Who’s going to make them for you then?”“You are.”“Am I? You think I’m going to make you pancakes? Is that how you think it’s going to be?""You’re so good at it,” I whined. “Besides, if you do, I’ll sit on the counter in a short robe while you cook.” His soft laughter segued into another yawn. “Oh. Well then.” He kissed my ear again. “Maybe I’ll make you pancakes.”I will accept this relationship.Yeah, but I’d be willing to give it up for Seth and pancakes.Shit. I love Seth.So, in this episode of Georgina Kincaid is My Hero we have two separate situations to deal with. Doug, friendly co-assistant manager/would-be rock star, starts going a bit crazy and Georgina must figure out how to help him while his bands new drummer uses lame pick-up lines on her. At the same time her old friend Bastian, an incubus, breezes into town hoping to bag and destroy Dana Daily, a loud and obnoxious holier than thou “moral” public figure. As far as the plot for these two go it was a little meh. Nothing too exciting and fairly predictable that they could both wrap up in an hour long episode if this was a TV show. Even though I didn’t exactly see the who of the Doug sitch. And by the who I mean (view spoiler)[the god Georgina ended up bringing down thanks to the sort of, but not really, help of Carter and Jerome (hide spoiler)]. But with the whole ‘succubus with a soul’ and ‘how to bed Seth without killing him’ thing that seems to be the basis of the series I didn’t really care that the subplot was a bit boring. Georgina could be trying to find someone who stole candy from a kid for all I care, I’d still read with the same intensity just to get some quality time with Seth and a bit of insightful advice from Carter. (seriously, he should have a Dear, Carter column in a newspaper)Couple of things I would have changed though:-More ‘entourage’ time. I love Hugh, Peter, and Cody. Where were you male BFFs?-Less Bastian. God, he annoyed me. Always, want want want, take take take. Both him and Georgina don’t seem to realize that a friendship is a two-way street. Plus, (view spoiler)[I will never like him after is little Sethscapade. Even if Georgina forgives him. Douche move dude (hide spoiler)].Other than that, I say READ IT, after the first one of course.Now off to the next one! Get ready Seth…I’m comin’ for ya!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    I can't believe that I am reviewing this book. I am an academic political scientist. But I find Richelle Mead's books in the Georgina Kincaid series irresistible. I read the first in the series because a couple Amazon Friends whose reviews I respect a great deal spoke well of that book. I read and enjoyed--and against all odds--reviewed that work. And when I discovered that a second book had been published, I found myself eager to read it. And, in some ways, I think that this is even better than the captivating introductory volume in this series. For those who might be interested, rest assured that one need not read the first work to enjoy this book. Characters? A demon, an angel, vampires, an imp, a god, a succubus (Georgina, the primary character), and an incubus--as well as assorted mortals. This book features two major plot lines. One, the rapid ascent of a band featuring some of Georgina's mortal friends, who are powering their way to the top with artificial means. Two, the assignment of an incubus (a male equivalent to a succubus--hey, I'm learning stuff here!), Bastien, to try to use his charms and ways to discredit Dana, a conservative, moralistic advocate. Bastien has known Georgina for centuries, so they renew their friendship (sometimes in odd ways) here. A story line continuing from the first book is Georgina's relationship with a human, Seth. Now here is a challenge for a couple who feel warmth for one another. A succubus sucks life energy from partners when there are intimacies. So, how can Georgina and Seth develop a relationship that doesn't shorten his life? One of the charming aspects of this book is the set of workarounds that the two develop at the very end of the volume, as they try to share their developing love (seems pretty far out, given their obvious differences!). If you liked the first book in the series, you'll really enjoy this. If you simply enjoy this genre, I think that you will enjoy, too. The author has a nice way of creating characters and situations that seem almost believable (Weird, huh? Imps, vampires, gods, and believable??).

    Bawdy, sexy, over the top, flirty and provoking: the Georgia Kinkaid novels may share a lot of the same DNA as the Harry Dresden’s and Peter Grant’s – a supernaturally inclined hero tackles occult based mysteries in a city they know so well – but the tone of it is so incredibly different, it’s pretty much the ‘Carry On’ version.The key difference though is that whereas your Harry Dresdens and your Peter Grants use the detective story as the template, this all comes from soap opera. There’s a bookshop as a place of work and various small dramas that arise from that, as well as an array of work colleagues with their own issues. Away from the nine to five, there’s a collection of various supernatural friends, as well as a mortal boyfriend Georgia is having an awkwardly chaste relationship with. Oh, and somewhere amidst these little dramas, there’s a mystery concerning drugs to be solved as well.Really, it’s a hang-out novel. You turn to Page One and you just hang out with these characters and enjoy their lives. It means that the plot passes the time rather than grips, but that’s fine as you’re just hanging out and enjoying the scenery. I’m two books in and I’m sure I’ll be back for some more one day, as I now have some cool Seattle friends, who are demons and angels, as well as a sexy succubus to guide the way, and it’d be fun to call in and see what they’re up to.

    The Good: The introduction of Georgina's long-time friend Bastien brings equal parts fun and aggravation. He's part of her past, when she wasn't always playing good-girl succubus. He's just like her, yet without the moral qualms. He can me less likable at times, but he's a good time. Between helping Bastien with a super interesting project/mission and trying to figure out the key to Doug's new fame, Georgina is busy. The story moves very quickly and is almost always interesting and awesome.The Bad: The one not awesome point: Georgina's flirtation with Seth worked in the first book , but as a relationship in this book it turns annoying. They can't be together physically. She needs to have sex with other men. He accepts that? To be with her? Why? Is this all a lead up until she can't take it any more and ends up breaking and just feeding on him? But . . . ugh. It makes me think less of both characters to remain in this situation.
