My Review and Description:

This book was exactly what I wanted to read when I embarked on my saucy romance reading adventure.

Holy Cow. Yummy. Oh my.

These are phrases that bubbled out of my mouth as I read. Simply said, this was steamy and funny at the same time.

Jackie Brighton was not a hottie. She was your average Jane who worked in a museum. Pretty ho hum. She wakes up one morning however, in a dumpster, with a body that she doesn't recognize. An AWESOME body she doesn't recognize. Turns out she was bit by a vampire. Turns out she had a one night stand with a fallen angel (See cover of book. Yummy). Turns out she is now a Succubus, an immortal creature who feeds off of sexual desire. In other words, she has to have sex...a lot or else she doesn't feel so hot. It takes quite a bit of time for Jackie to get used to her new lifestyle and her new smokin' body.
So begins her adventure with the fallen angel (Noah), the vampire that bit her and the only other Succubus that exists in the area (Remy). It is fast paced and fun to read.

Admittedly, reading the back of the book, I didn't really know what to expect and perhaps I was leaning towards the cheesy or the over the top. But it was really funny, cleverly written, and didn't take itself too seriously. The sex scenes were steamy, the banter between the characters was snappy and the story was easy to follow (no crazy glossary or family trees or descriptions of a bazillion types of demons, etc).

I really enjoyed the heck out of this one. I am actually going to read the second book in this series that just came out, Succubi Like it Hot. This is a good ol' saucy sexy romancing read.

Please check out the author at her website. She is definitely one to watch. Jill Myles
