Succubi Have All The Luck!

Posted February 12, 2010 by Jen in 4 stars, Paranormal Romance, Rating A, Reviews, Urban Fantasy Tags: , , ,

Are you looking for something sexy and fun to read? Well, let me point you in the right direction… Meet new author, Jill Myles and her wonderful males: Noah and Zane. Together, they make my ideal book boyfriend!

Jill Myles is the author of a great new series, The Succubus Diaries. The first book is Gentlemen Prefer Succubi. From Jill’s website:

Jackie Brighton woke up in a dumpster this morning, and her day has only gotten weirder. Her breasts grew overnight, her sex drive is insatiable, and apparently she had her first one-night stand ever . . . with a fallen angel.
Of course, she only remembers gorgeous Noah’s enormous, er, package. And their steamy shower sex. Hmm . . . and the dark stranger whose bite transformed her into an immortal siren with a seductive Itch.

With help from Noah and fellow succubus Remy Summore, Jackie adapts to her new lifestyle—until she accidentally strikes a deal that sends her lover into the deadly clutches of the vampire queen and lands Jackie, Remy, and the queen’s wickedly hot right-hand man into the middle of a fierce battle for an ancient halo.

But how’s a girl supposed to save the world when the enemy’s so hard to resist?

Her second book is Succubi Like It Hot. From Jill’s website:

With a flirtatious new figure, her dream job as an archaeologist, and two gorgeous boyfriends to scratch her seductive Itch—an angel and a vampire—Jackie Brighton is totally getting the hang of life as a succubus.

Then her need for sex spirals out of control, and she accidentally knocks the pizza guy unconscious with her touch. Great, she’s cursed. Unfortunately, neither of her jealous lovers is exactly talking to her right now.

So after Jackie strikes a deal with a crafty demon, she and her best friend Remy take a cross-country road trip to deliver a cryptic message to the nation’s oldest succubus (who doesn’t look a day over eighteen.) Their journey gets weirder with every mile—demonic possession, a charming stalker, a deadly hotel room warning—but when they get to New Orleans, Jackie discovers a dangerous catch to her supernatural bargain. Someone wants her dead (again), but has she been sleeping with the enemy?

Or do the forces of evil think they’re some kind of match for a vixen in a miniskirt?

So, where to start? First… Look at Noah’s hip dents!! Who can resist a man with gorgeous hip dents? Both males are wonderful characters and the covers are sexy. Let’s just spend a few moments drooling over, er… looking at these males!

The books are told from the first-person point-of-view of Jackie. This is not a common feature of paranormal romance, but it works for these books. Although Jackie can be a bit annoying at times (she’s sort of a whiny, “why me?” kind of girl), I can see her concerns and feelings from her side of things. Because we never get any other POV, we accept her feelings as genuine and learn life as a succubus through Jackie’s (mis)adventures. I don’t know if any other succubi have this kind of luck, but Jackie seems to attract trouble.

However, Jackie has something most succubi (and humans) do not: two males that care deeply for her. Where Noah is light, Zane is dark. Where Noah decides what’s best for Jackie, Zane let’s Jackie decide. Where Noah sleeps at night, Zane sleeps during the day, and Jackie NEVER sleeps – well… yea, those two boys together make the ideal male. Too bad they don’t really care for each other, nor do they want to share Jackie. Both males exhibit some truly beautiful moments, and without spoiling anything, there is a scene in Book 2 that just brings me to tears because it is so touching.

I highly recommend these books. The third, unnamed Succubus book is scheduled for release in early 2011. (Just between you and me, I’m desperately trying to get details from Ms. Myles, but she is not giving up anything! Except an amazing snippet – on her website.) They are not your typical paranormal romance series. The mood is light, the adventures are zany, and the first person POV is fun. The books are full of humor and the lovin’ is HOT! If you are in mood for a sexy, fun read please check out both Gentlemen Prefer Succubi and Succubi Like It Hot!

And you are in luck… Right now at The Odd Shots blog Jill is giving away 10 books (winners pick either Book 1 or Book 2). Contest ends on Thursday, February 18th, 2010. Good luck and ENJOY!!
