Publisher's Summary

Jace Blackbriar just wants to become a blacksmith and live a comfortable life in his village. His family never wanted him to become an adventurer...and he isn't going to break that promise.

Jace wants to learn to make goods that pay well so that he can support himself, and maybe even send some money to his family. His goal is to gain the blacksmith class and start his own forge. But then, one of the other apprentices decides he needs to be taught a lesson.

When a rare and valuable magic item is destroyed, Jace is left with a racial transformation and cast into the wilds without guidance. Now, he has to figure out how to survive in a kill-or-be-killed world as a monster race that most goodly folk will want dead. 

Accidental Incubus contains explicit elements and some adult content.

The last 2 and a half hours were downhill

Honestly a lot this story was excellently done. This review will probably be a bit of a mess but I'm going to try to do it in a way I think might answer most questions.

1. R-18, yes. This is a story about an incubus, honestly if someone writes a story about a succubus or incubus and keeps it PG-13 it will lose points in my book, just pick another damn demon. That said I do appreciate how it is done. In general his first time with someone is the only time it is descriptive. Or at least someone who's name we will here later. The rest of the times it is more of a fade to black. So while he is having sex alot, you don't have to deal with scene after scene to the point you are wondering where the story went. So you get a few smut scenes, but aren't overburdened by them.

2. Evil MC? Ehh, *waggles hands* This I was actually worried about and pleased with. I was afraid that the person would turn demon and be either a psychopath that I would hope loses anyways, or crying about his situation and overloading us with his moral dilemma BS. This isn't how it goes. You are made to understand why demons do what they do (from a mechanical perspective, like if someone is hungry they feel pain in the stomach and so they eat food to avoid that, also from the game mechanic perspective). It is also made known why he would go along with it, without too many compunctions. He then tries to balance it with who he actually wants to be. We still get some moral dilemma but it is more of an event than a storyline. The last 2 and half hours starts screwing this up though.

3. LitRPG? Yes, and unfortunately while a number of the character sheets are simply when he levels up, it does go a bit overboard near the end. Although I will consider the character sheet still reasonably short, Another problem is it going through the character sheet then the skill sheet alot of the time. And I didn't notice it mostly being placed at the end of a chapter or anything like that.

4. Harem? Yes, I don't personally have an issue with harems and it is pretty laid back, And honestly it makes sense for an Incubus, unless it is going to be one night stands forever.

I suspect these will be what people that are interested but unsure will be wondering about. Though I do have to vent about something that the author was doing so good at avoiding.

EDIT: I modified the performance score because honestly I had forgotten about it. The narrator isn't bad. I mean he has a nasally voice that doesn't really work for the story but I can't hold his voice against him when I thought his reading was fine. He doesn't have the voice changing skills of some narrators, Which I consider keeps him from being great so I changed his 5 star to a 4 star. It was good and respectable, probably not the best story for him to do when the characters voices are described as being resonant or powerful. I do think he can improve on that though, so it won't be a narrator I will actively avoid.
Also, I changed the overall to 4 stars, I feel like most people probably won't be as bothered as I was by the last 2.5 hours, and I was a bit more irritated when I originally wrote the review. However I also have a general rule of if I know I'm going to get the next book it should get 4 stars based on that merit alone in the overall category. Since I am unsure I think I took that rule to the next level where if I don't think I am (or slightly leaning towards no) I will rate it less than 4. However I have done some self reflection and clarified with myself that 4 stars does not mean I will get the next book, but if I am getting the next book it deserves 4 stars. (And it is if I finish the book and want to start the next book, not if I actually do). Therefore the overall does deserve 4 stars because I really did enjoy a majority of the story and the author did so much right that I was worried about in the book.
And on cliffhangers, I don't necessarily mind cliffhangers as much as abrupt endings. And even more so when the author does it every book. There is another series that I read the first book and it ended, it was a fairly abrupt cliffhanger that left me thinking "Did the book really end?" Then the same thing happened in the second book. Since then I have not been able to convince myself to try the third even though after years it is still being recommended to me occasionally. This book did have a cliffhanger, but I didn't find it to be abrupt. In fact I feel it was quite properly done. And even doing something similar in the second book will still be fine, however not the third book. Habitual cliffhangers where you can pretty much expect the author to leave one is poor writing, as then you are trying to manipulate people into getting your next book instead of letting your storytelling draw them into wanting your next book. Which is why I believe Authors should occasionally do cliffhangers, just not consecutively. That said some people can't handle cliffhangers like some can't take cruel MCs or sex in books, so it should be mentioned so the people that don't want to deal with it can stay away, or at least wait until the next book is out. TLDR: The cliffhanger is reasonable enough that it doesn't deserve a point deduction, but if you don't like them on principal, wait until next book is out.
End review.

*This is a vent in general that I've had about a number of books but was triggered in this book. I was able to make it vague enough that I could barely link it to this book though.*
*********
I wish there were consequences for some of these MCs, Honestly when they keep pushing their own agenda over other people, and everyone else submits or breaks, it is irritating. I don't care if I agree or disagree with their view, People have different values, and being different isn't wrong, and they shouldn't win their conflict every time. Also when you start a fight and they fight back, don't have your character get enraged as if what was done to them in the fight they started was unforgivable.

A Dark Story

- Harem based (makes sense, incubus and all)
- Decent amount of Adult Content (Not to much, not to little)
- Cliff Hanger ending.

I enjoyed the spin on what is classically in the classic tropes that haunt this type of story (at least from what I've seen). Being a jerk like I am I expected there to be a good lead up to the second book, something to hook readers in. Which book 2 is ALREADY out on Kindle, and if rumor on the Author's Facebook and other places is true, it will eventually be in Audio version very soon. Looking forward to the next installment.

Narrator Sux but the Story is Solid

So the story is a little rough around the edges, the narrator is awful at pacing and tone, yet the story shines through. This is most definitely an early attempt at writing, however if this author took some classes or started analyzing other's works, or just got a very good editor he would thrive, this book is by no means a work of art and the narrator makes that even more clear with his horrible pacing and tone, but given time an proper care this author will become a common name in male erotica.

cliffhangers are an annoying crutch

cliffhangers are downright infuriating when completely redundant to keeping interest in the story, it's likely to make me not pickup the next book even if I liked the story

sigh

Great book and liked it up until the last minute. I have a special hate for cliffhangers. It's lazy and any writer worth their salt would find a way to entice readers to continue their series without a cliffhanger. It lost two stars just for that.

Josh did a great job narrating.

1 star because I have to Mindless slave for a MC

ok this book was decent but went down hill fast. This is another traditional story with a mindless slave for a maincharacter .the narrator he can't do female voices at all and the stats why all the damn repeating even when he looks at them and they finally stop and he looks again 5 seconds later and they repeat why?? 1/4 of the book is repeating stats. one other thing what happened to Jace's parents other then the blacksmith sending someone to notify them that he died I didn't see anything else even mentioned about them I can understand once he truly embraced his demon side but nothing

the narrator is really bad

like holy shit this guy feels like he has no idea what his own mouth is! One that gets me bad is when he says Arr-CHArr-REE instead of archery like a normal human. Everything is delived slow and with an off rhythm cadence. It is mostly solved by turning up to 1.5-8 times speed.

credit where it is due. there are no lip noises or bad breathing into the mic problems.

Not made from the same mold as the others in this genre.

This book does fall into the harem lit genre I personally listen too regularly. However it doesn’t fit so perfectly into that mold. Those tend to go one or two ways, edgy asshole or goody two shoes. This mc has opinions and stances firmly in both good and evil. There is a pretty gnarly cliff hanger but from what I’ve seen of the second book it is resolved in a satisfying way. My main issue here is the lack of dual narration. The narrator does the best he can, which saved this book for me, because normally I can’t stand single male narrators so it’s a testament to him I was able to make it through this book. It would however help the series incredibly to have dual narration.

Really good book

A story that takes place in an lit/RPG world where status sheets, classes and races are all well established. The story revolves around our hero, a blacksmiths apprentice who gets transformed into an incubus named Jace Blackbriar.

I did particularly like this book as it hit the ground running and left the boring life of a blacksmith behind pretty quickly and seldom looked back. The story was solid and had a good direction and flow, the sex scenes were not fade to black but unlike other stories they were not forced or just put there as a place holder.

I also found the premise of an incubus pretty compelling, true to lit/RPG format there are lots of stats but the quests that relate to the incubus class revolve around seduction, temptation and corruption. Jace gets numerous quests to tempt others into corrupt actions ie pushing individuals towards darker actions. I hope this is further explored in book 2.

This is a really good book, I will definitely be purchasing book 2.
