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.
I'm a stay-at-home mom and I like to listen to books while I clean.
One of Audibles best female readers gives personality to a story I might not otherwise find appealing.
This book came highly recommended to me by a close friend.
It's a fun series with a strong female lead. I enjoy that the gender roles typical in most romance novels have been reversed here. Instead of your cliche simpering maiden pining after the dark and sexy male love interest, here we have a dark and sexy female earning the love of a shy and at times, even simpering, man. The love interest manages to make this behavior adorable as opposed to cliche and obnoxious, and it's nice to see a romance novel with a female in the dominant role.
I personally find the urban-supernatural feel to be a bit overused and repetative. Most of these paranormal romances that have come out over the last 10 years all feel the same to me. The names change and the monsters change from vampires to demons to witches, but they are all the same.
If it's your flavor, this is a great book for you. However, if you want something with a bit more substance, you may want to look elsewhere.
I would recommend this audiobook to fans of the genre of light urban fantasy stories, or fans of the Georgia Kincaid series.
Georgia is an easy to relate to character. Sometimes a little slow on the uptake regarding a current mystery. Overall I really liked the plot of this one. The introduction of a new character from Georgina's past makes for a new interesting dynamic and I'm still with the idea of a succubus who is a fan girl of a writer who is social introvert.
Voices of characters are distinct, and she puts real emotion into the main character.
No. It wasn't so engaging as to listen to it constantly. I mostly listened to it in pieces.
It is a good book. Not amazing nor bad. It's a good continuation of the series.
For background, my favorite authors are George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb, Jacqueline Carey, Ken Follett, Bernard Cornwell, Kevin Hearne, Jim Butcher and Margaret George.
Eh, not in my top ten but definitely not in the bottom.
I liked that it was as realistic as it could be considering the nature of the story. It wasn't all happily ever after and butterfly kisses.
I was easily drawn into the story with her performance. It just made getting into the story easy.
A little bit of both.
If you are offended by sex, don't read this series because hello the main character is a succubus! But if you are into urban fantasy, give this series a try you might find you have a new favorite type of supernatural critter!
