Life as a succubus is a never-ending job for Georgina Kincaid, especially when all she really craves is a little human normalcy. With a boyfriend that even a kiss could drain, her love life is difficult to say the least, but Seth is hanging in there and dealing with their strange arrangement.

A longtime incubus friend, Bastien, has come to town on a mission to cause the compromising position that will destroy the image of a local talk radio star. After moving in next door to his target, Bastien ropes Georgina in to help him achieve his goal. That’s an arrangement that makes even the easygoing Seth a little nervous.

Meanwhile, Georgina’s co-worker Doug is acting stranger by the day. His band is taking off with the help of a new drummer, but something more seems to be affecting each of the guys. Georgina’s not about to watch Doug destroy his life, and she’s the best chance he has to stop it.

Succubus On Top is the second installment in The Georgina Kincaid Series. Between taking on extra hours at work, keeping up her agreement as a succubus, and helping an immortal friend with his latest task, Georgina has little time left over for her very mortal boyfriend, Seth. He has been more than a little understanding, but with Bastien in town even Seth may have to question their relationship. Ms. Mead picks up the story where Succubus Blues left off and adds to the growing turmoil in Georgina’s life. This is a fast-moving read with plenty of action to keep fans riveted. There are several delicious plot twists that lead to some very sizzling sex scenes. Readers will be curious to see where Georgina and Seth’s relationship heads in the next installment.

Great review, Kimberly!

You know, I'm not really sure if I'll read this one or not, it's not that I didn't like Succubus Blues because I did, it's just there was something that just rub me the wrong way. I can't quite put my finger on what it was though, maybe I should read it again.

As Wendy said, great review! I do have one I'm sure very stupid question: What is a succubus?

I have been dying to read Richelle Mead! Great review, I can't wait to read it!!

Wendy - Thank you! Was it the 'too nice' boyfriend maybe? I know that bothers a lot of people, but the rest of us are just waiting for them to find the loophole around the no-sex dating they've got going on. :)

T.C. - Thank you, and your question isn't stupid at all. A succubus is a female demon and in this story she needs the life-force from humans to continue living. She gets that through sex. (the male is an incubus)

Rachael - She has a YA series that I haven't had a chance to read yet too! Thank you, enjoy your book!
