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 What I enjoy about the series is the historical references and lives.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.
That Georgina is actually a character that you could be friends with, I did not expect her to be so likable considering that she is succubus.
Its entertaining and she does not come across as evil.
She made the characters sound great, even the men. I would listen to her again.
Not overly reactive, only pleasantly surprised that she is so down to earth.
Im glad there were so many reviews to help me decide to read this one, I may not have chosen it otherwise. It was not sexually offensive as one may expect with such a subject matter. Its a good read with characters that you can enjoy.
STOP READING IF YOU DO NOT WANT SPOILERS! I generally DO NOT like cheating in the main romantic characters but with one of the main character being a succubus I wanted to see how they work around that (she must do 2 humans a month) but I couldn't see them getting around no sex rule for Seth I figured that may have led to his getting involved with someone else,but we find out in this book that Georgina cheats with Bastain (he shapeshifts into Seth)but she knows he is not Seth so I am not real happy with Georgina right now. I mean her original cheating with her husband should have taught her the lesson. Ms Mead does such a great job with her story and other characters that she draws you in and you feel so much for Georgina so even thought cheating usually keeps me away from books, I have enjoyed the first 2 immensely (but I have to take this much heart breaking angst in small doses)
This book was really boring. Returned it for another book. The first book was also boring and I thought this one would get better.
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
The story of Georgina picks up immediately where Succubus Blues, Book 1 leaves off. However, enough is explained/reviewed that one can follow without having read Book 1. New characters are introduced and more of her life as a mortal is recalled. On Top employs a dual plot approach that are largely unrelated, so each chapter has much to explore. Bastion, an incubus from her past, plays a central role in one of the two plots. He's most certainly entertaining and pushes the nature of their 'friendship.' He exits at the story's conclusion and leaves the reader a tad bereft. Seth and Georgina's relationship develops despite Georgina's poor choices. Curious to see how Seth's character evolves further into the series.
Rodgers audio interpretation of the story and characters does improve over the Blues. Overall, enjoyable read.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
It ranks among the best I have read.
I have just started listening to this vampire genre and I am glad I tried it!
There are lots of scenes that I enjoyed throughtout the story! I just love how Georgina lives and loves!
Probably the love between Seth and G!
If you are going to give it a try, start with book 1, it is just as good!

This series has successfully hooked me. It might be partly because the main character works in a bookstore and dates an author (I'm definitely a sucker for the literary themes) but also because it's fun, and a little sexy, and the gray areas and somewhat complex relationships of the characters give it some substance. I'm hoping that substance continues to grow. Seth's character, and their romance, still feels a little flat but the dynamics are interesting. I also really like Elisabeth Rodgers' narration. Her voice feels very appropriate for Georgina.
Make her succubus a little less uptight
Her voice is easy to listen to and very likable
It was a little ridiculous that a "succubus" turned from a greek culture would be so caught up in the judeao christian guilt trip mythos. the good girl succubus became a little tiresome after a while.
