I'm still trying to decide just what I think about this series and how I feel about it. I like the idea and most of the characters but I'm not sure that I like Georgina and I don't quite know what it means to say that you don't like the main character of the book. And I'm not sure that I don't like her. I just don't understand her. Hopefully that will come as I continue the series because I now that I love with Seth and want to see him get his happily ever after. This book was much better than the first book to me; so, I hope that means that I will like the series better as it goes along.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
YES! I am so glad I gave this series a chance!!!! I love Georgina! She is such a cool character...a succubus with a conscience....who knew?
The ending was super sexy....I dont know why they didnt think of that solution in the first place!!! lol
The first Georgina, and I have to say, she is an excellent narrator, comparable to Marguerite Gavin, and Tavia Gilbert!
Same as the title....Succubus On Top!
I absolutely love this series!!!! I can not wait to read/listen the rest of these books! I know I am going to love this whole series! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! 2 HUGE THUMBS UP!!!
I enjoyed the first book in the series as a refreshing angle on the supernatural genre. However, I was very disappointed with this book and wanted to give fair warning to those who are on the fence that they may want to consider using their credit on a different book.
The story starts with much potential with the introduction of new interesting characters such as Bastien her Incubus best friend. However, the story soon becomes very irritating in many ways:
- The pace is much slower than the first book
- Georgina a Succubus who regularly devours men's lives and souls, gets on her high horse about morality and starts trying to interfere in the sex life of a female friend... give me a break!
- Georgina is regularly out on the town seducing men while her boyfriend Seth steadfastly remains chaste. The one so obvious solution to giving him some relief isn't discovered till the end. This relationship is so unrealistic it is painful to listen to.
- Bastien the expert Incubus who has no trouble going home with two beautiful women at a time every night has trouble seducing a woman. The reason becomes so painfully obvious early on but somehow doesn't get resolved until... you guessed it, Georgina comes to the rescue.
To put it in a nutshell, Georgina becomes much too unrealistic for a 2000 year old Succubus or even a 26 year old Succubus for that matter, in this book, and the main supporting characters aren't much better. This is a shame because the premise for this book was interesting; it could have been so much better if the author had spent time with more realistic character development and plot.
It takes a really good book to top the first in a series, and this one isn't it. It is ok, so if you get it on a sale you won't feel as if you wasted your money. But don't pay full price for it. There were a lot of places where the author could have done more with the scene, but didn't. Other scenes were just way too long. As I said, it was ok.
I have read this series and loved it so after to listening to the first book I knew I would be buying them all! Elisabeth Rogers doors a great job.

The series is interesting. I am actually reading/listening to it in an effort to study the genre more closely. This episode was sort of peculiar. I could see some development in Georgina, but her supporting cast remains somewhat cardboard-like. (Opposed to those in Kim Harrison's series.) The "ambrosia of the gods" was a nice line. It sort of reminded me of meth. Having a blast from the past helped build some more of the backstory, but I am still not totally hooked. I did enjoy some of the humor and the sex scenes offered a bit of a clinic as to what the target demographic (mainly women in this case) will accept. I will sally forth and hope it continues to get better.
Georgina Kincaid continues to try to find love in all the wrong/right places. With the help of her friends, from both heaven and hell, she finds herself in yet another mystery and personal disaster. What I enjoy about the series is the historical references and lives.
Series I Love:
Kim Harrison- The Hallows
J.R. Ward- The Blackdagger Brotherhood
Charlene Harris- Sookie Stackhouse Series
George R. R. Martin- Game of Thrones
Suzanne Collins- The Hunger Games
Yes, it is a sexy little tale of a Succubus who is trying to be a good girl
I would recommend it to my friends who enjoy girlie paranormal reads
I think she captures essence of Georgina rather well
I really like the interactions between Carter and Georgina. They are unlikely and there is clearly more to the story than is being revealed at this time.
