Rated: Adult
Buy Succubus Dreams (Georgina Kincaid, Book 3) here

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... 

What I thought:

Oh man!  I think this series is a really good one, but this one had me on the verge of tears from about 1/3 of the way through and right on through the end.  While I thought it was predictable where it was going (hey! That isn't always bad!) I was still hoping I was wrong.  No worries, no spoilers! I would just recommend those who are prone to crying to have a few tissues handy.

When I first started reading this series, I thought the succubus was a pretty cheesy way of doing a novel/series with lots of cheesy sex.  Well, the first book proved me wrong, and the more I read the more I realize how much I love Georgina as a character.  She's not really happy with how she has to survive, but she makes the best of it, while still holding on to her dreams.  Even if they do tend to crush her later on when she gets low and gets defeated by the thought that it could never be.  She doesn't want to lose her humanity, and I love that about her.

I gave it 4 stars!
