It’s probably a fair assumption to make that when you read a series that you can’t help but compare it to other series that may share similar characteristics. So it was the case with this when I couldn’t help but compare it to one of my favourite authors; Richelle Mead and her Georgina Kincaid series.
However, it’s always nice to series that there are sufficient differences in story and characters that as a reader, you feel no betrayal in enjoying both series.
Whereas Georgina Kincaid has been a succubus for quite awhile now, Jackie Brighton is brand new to her role. Indeed, there is now prequel to the series; Foreplay that explains how she came to be waking up in a dumpster which is where this book starts.
In fact, Jackie is so new to the role that she doesn’t even realise what she is at first until men start behaving like fools in love and she herself almost takes advantage of her doorman due to an uncontrollable Itch.
But it’s not long before she’s introduced to Remy Summore, another succubus, who and what they are and how they came to be. Whilst Remy does her best, it’s not long before Jackie makes a mistake due to her innocence and before they know it, Jackie and Remy are accompanied by the vampire Zane to track down a halo for the vampire queen.
This is a light, fun read and there are some slight twists on the lore such as how succubi are made and what happens to vampires during the day. Jackie is a nice heroine and tries to cope with the situation that she is thrust in and it’s interesting to see her switch from a confident woman to one who is at the mercy of her desires and the scenes when she succumbs to them are quite steamy.
