Book Review- Succubus On Top

I just finished reading Succubus On Top by Richelle Mead.
From the back cover:

Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses Seth Mortensen, the shy, sexy, incredibly gifted Seattle writer she's been dating, she'll drain his life force. Georgina is a succubus--a demon who draws her power from other men's pleasure. Admittedly, the shapeshifting and immortality perks are terrific, and yes, Georgina did choose to join the ranks of hell centuries ago. But it seems completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can't get hot and heavy with the one mortal who knows and accepts her for who she is...

It's not just her personal life thats in chaos. Doug, Georgina's co-worker at a local bookstore, has been exhibiting bizzare behavior, and Georgina suspects that something far more demonic than double espressos is at work. She could use help finding out, but Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, is preoccupied with corrupting an ultra-conservative talk radio star--and giving Georgina some highly distracting come-hither vibes. Georgina is going to have to work solo on this one--and fast because soon, Doug's life won't be the only one on the line...

I had forgotten how much I loved the first book, Succubus Blues. But only a couple of pages into this one and I remembered. I love the mix of romance (on the slightly erotic side) and the comedy. Georgina is so funny! And who wouldn't want a Seth of their own? (Although I can't imagine being in their position and not being able to even really kiss each other!) And how cool would it be to be able to shape-shift into whatever clothes you wanted to and make yourself look however you wanted! I can't wait to read the next book, Succubus Dreams and am going to go start it right now!

I gave this book a rating of 4/5.
