Some days, a girl just can't catch a break......especially when the girl in question is Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men. First there's her relationship with gorgeous bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, which is unsatisfying on a number of levels. It's not just that they can't have sex in case Georgina inadvertently kills him (generally a turn-off for most guys). Lately, even spending time together is a challenge. Seth's obsessed with finishing his latest novel, and Georgina's under demonic orders to mentor the new (and surprisingly inept) succubus on the block.Then there are the dreams. Someone, or something, is preying on Georgina at night, draining her energy, and supplying eerie visions of her future. Georgina seeks answers from Dante, a dream interpreter with ties to the underworld, but his flirtatious charm only leaves her more confused-especially as the situation with Seth reaches crisis point. Now Georgina faces a double challenge-rein in her out-of-control love life, and go toe-to-toe with an enemy capable of wreaking serious havoc among mankind. Otherwise, Georgina, and the entire mortal world, may never sleep easy again...
Ok I'm jumping right into this and let me tell you I'm speaking my mind and I'm 100% sure their will be ***SPOILERS*** out the ying yang!
Ok so here I go...first off this book was SO AMAZINGLY GOOOOOD! This book pulled on SO MANY different emotions I was going crazy. I will tell you I was talking with Ames and telling her I was having anxiety over this book! lol I did know what was going to happen before I read this book which made it SO MUCH HARDER to read...word to the wise...don't force your friend to tell you spoilers...omg b/c it leaves you wondering the entore time when stuff will happen and you keep asking more questions...and more questions...until you know everything. Never the less...I did have surprises come along.
Georgie has been having these odd dreams...shes in a kitchen washing dishes and looks back to see her DAUGHTER (she just feels/knows its her own flesh and blood daughter) sitting on the floor playing. After a few minutes she hears crying and goes to pick up her child. They hear a car door outside and go to meet...DADDY...but she never gets to see who the daddy actually is. AND when she wakes up from the dream shes drained from all life source, EVEN if she had sex just the night before! Whats happening is Nyx is coming into her dreams and draining her! After a while Georgie catches on to whats happening and knows she needs to find a resolution. She goes to a "physic" named Dante and he totally hits on her, but we find out hes not SO BAD and helps her along the way.
Ok so Seth and Georgie...
They are having so many problems...well lots of it has to do with her being a succubus and him being a writer! She cant have sex with Seth for fear of taking years off his life. And after an attempted mugging Seth is tempted to play with the odds. He PUSHES AND PUSHES Georgie to have sex with him but she just cant do it! After all she immortal and he isnt so why take time off of his life when he wont be around forever...he will. Georgies problem with Seth (besides the sexual ones) are that hes been breaking plans with her and standing her up continually. She understands that hes a writer BUT that doesnt mean she needs to fall in between the cracks! Well like I said he pushes her one night and she totally tells him NO! They have a huge fight and he leaves her apartment.
In comes Maddie...we met Maddie one book back. Seth went to pick her up b/c Doug (her bro) was in the hospital. I thought it was odd that Seth and Maddie were in a car for 4 hours not even knowing each other but nothing came of it then and so I let it go. LITTLE did I know that that....grrrr....MADDIE would come back to bite me in the butt! Ok so Georgie and Maddie are close friends and Georgie has been helping her "find herself", have more confidence, dress better etc. She even at one point goes to a date auction and Georgie makes Seth bid (and win) her b/c she felt so bad. Well when Seth leaves Georgies pissed off he goes and HOOKS UP WITH MADDIE!!! OMG! Maddie doesnt know Georgie and Seth are dating so she tells Georgie before she leaves town for Christmas. Seth goes to pick Georgie up for dinner...they have a huge blow out but Georgie says "Its ok I do it all the time we will get past this" only for Seth to say that he wants to BREAK UP and he likes Maddie. Where the hell did this come from!??! OMG I was SO HURT! He compares the two girls saying Maddie is like Georgie but "human" OMG!
So by the dang end of the book Maddie and Seth are together! I just dont get it. Its sad enough that Georgie basically made Maddie to where Seth could "see her" but he NEVER cared!!! He was with her 1 stinking night and BAM forget all the love I have for Georgie I want Maddie! UGH! I THINK he broke it off b/c in the end it will hurt Georgie b/c one day he will die, also they fight all the time from the strains of what she does and they cant really consummate their relationship! BUT the entire thing just made me want to throw up! :*(
"Whats the report Maddie? What adventurous things have you done?"
"Well theres the new clothes. I feel like...well, like a girl." I smiled and looked at the cars ahead of me.
"What have you done other than the shopping?"
"I signed up for judo class. Its the craziest thing I could think of."
"I started looking for my own place, started checking out flights to places I want to see, and I slept with Seth."
I nearly drove into the median. "What?" I said jerking the wheel back to my own lane. Maddie had her hands stretched out protectively. "Seth Mortensen?"
"Of course who else?" It was one of those things that was so ludicrous, I couldnt even fully react. It was like saying, "Hey did you notice the earth just exploded?"
"And we talked...and after a while...we stopped talking. And one thing led to another." She exhaled, like she still couldnt believe it herself.
No, no, no. This wasn't happening. This was a dream...a nightmare that Id hoped Id wake up from soon. "So, um, it was good?"
"Oh, yeah!" She gave a nervous giggle, "I cant believe Im even talking about this. But, yeah, Seth's a great lover. Very attentive."
Ok...RIGHT THERE I WANTED TO PUT MY FIST THROUGH A WALL!
A few other things...
1-Hugh stands up for Georgie and it melts my heart...he doesnt want Seth and her together b/c he fears for her to get hurt! :o)
2-I still want her to hook up with Carter.
3-They have a new Succubus that she has to mentor and the girl is a moron!
4-You learn about a love she had a long time ago for a priest named Andrew and it was super sad! I always love hearing about her past!
Ok so overall this book broke my damn little heart...SOMEONE REVIVE ME PLEASE! BUT even though it did that it was beautifully written and one of her best books! :o) Go get it or Ill put my fist through YOU! lol ;op
I give this book a total of...
