Georgina is a lot like Angel. She's a succubus but she doesn't want to be and she hates hurting good people. She misses being human, so she preys only on scumbags as needed. She spends most of the book bouncing between her human love interests and fighting her tendencies to suck the soul out of any man she so much as kisses. She's witty, she has a cool back story, and she ultimately makes a huge sacrifice for love. Oh and did I mention she works in a book store and has some pretty cool friends? There's the famous writer who reminded me a bit of Richard Castle, the bookshop manager who is a singer by night, the mysterious teacher, two vamps, an angel, and even a demon who chooses to look like John Cusack.
Wham-bam: Succubus Blues is a sexy fun character-driven paranormal romance with a hint of mystery that kept me guessing, smiling, and by the end forced me to remind myself to breath.
Words aloud: I cannot tell a lie. Elisabeth Rodgers annoyed me a teensy bit at first with her breathy way of drawing out the last word in a sentence. But she quickly grew on me, she moves at a great place, and she did a good job with voices.
Wrapping: My only gripe was the cover. I didn't love it. Does it sorta scream 90s goth? Here are some other covers. What do you think? Have a fav?
Whippersnappers: Some profanity and a some steamy sex scenes.
1. Am I the only one that sorta loves the name Georgina?
2. Have you read or listened to Succubus Blues? Which guy had your vote?
3. Wouldn't this make a great TV show?
4. Did Jerome like her maybe or am I just imagining that?
Wind-up: Succubus Blues is written by Richelle Mead, narrated by Elisabeth Rodgers, and 11 hours and 29 minutes long. The first half is character building but the second half is too good to turn off. Audiobook rating: 4 stars. Narrator rating: 4 stars.
