First, Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men, can't have sex with her gorgeous bestselling author boyfriend Seth Mortensen--in case she inadvertently kills him. Second, Georgina's under demonic orders to mentor the new (and surprisingly inept) succubus on the block. Third, someone's manipulating her dreams, draining her energy and supplying eerie visions of her future.

Georgina seeks answers from Dante, a dream interpreter with ties to the underworld, but his flirtatious charm only leaves her more confused--especially as the situation with Seth reaches a crisis point. Georgina needs to rein in her out-of-control love life and go toe-to-toe with an enemy capable of wreaking serious havoc among mankind. Otherwise, Georgina, and the entire mortal world, may never sleep easy again.

As I read more of the Georgina Kincaid series, I learn more about her past.  Discussing this with Berls at Because Reading, who is buddy listening to it with me,  we just don’t get it.  We find out Georgina is from the 5th century.  How can we have a 1600 year old young adult?  I totally feel her and relate to her emotions, but acting on them is immature.  She’s only going to have more difficulties if she continues this way.

I like Georgina and want her to do well and be happy.  She has some great friends and I felt bad when they pointed out she doesn’t learn because it’s true.  She’s very smart as she figures out things in the supernatural world.  But some things, how does she not know after all these years?  Possibly with less travel and communications until recently, she didn’t get to mix much with other supernaturals.  Now they can congregate more in cities where it’s also easier to be anonymous when one doesn’t age.

It was easy and fun to be back in the world as I began reading Succubus Dreams.   I partly guessed the villains here but not everything.  I am anxious to see where things go next because the ending here is sad.

Narration:

I have totally settled with this narrator as Georgina.  I enjoyed her performance of both males and females and they were comfortable to hear.   I was able to listen at my normal 1.5x speed.

  1. This was one of my first ever UF series! It’s been years since I’ve read it (almost 10, I think?) I remember loving it but being so frustrated and heart-sick over Georgina and Seth! Their relationship throughout the series put me through the wringer and I hated so many of her decisions… I think I may need a re-read at some point soon! It would be nice to re-visit some of the older series.

  2. I never did pick up this series when I came out, but I did love a succubus series from Jill Myles. Now I want to go back and re-read… I wonder if it’s held up with time.

    I read the first two and liked them. I think I bought this one and it is probably in my tbr that’s literally over a thousand on my Kindle. I’m not sure why I didn’t go on other than something else tempted me instead.
