Gentlemen Prefer Succubi (Succubus Diaries #1)
Jackie Brighton woke up in a Dumpster this morning, and her day has only gotten weirder. Her familiar B-cups have somehow become double Ds, her sex drive is insatiable, and apparently she had her first one-night stand ever... with a fallen angel. All she remembers is gorgeous Noah's oddly hypnotic blue eyes......more
I've read a lot of crap books, but I don't think I've ever used these words in a review before. Maybe because I've never, ever had such a strong compulsion to literally pick up a book and start rewriting it.
The thing is, the idea is FANTASTIC (By fantastic I mean sexy as hell and full of schmexing possibilities) and yet, it's such a let down. I can almost imagine some editor person sitting Jill Myles dow ...more
This is a deliciously sexy, fun debut read in the new Succubus Diaries series about angels and vampires and a reluctant succubus caught in the middle of their ancient battle.
Jackie Brighton’s quiet, mundane life as an introverted museum docent gets turned upside down when she wakes up one morning in a dumpster with a massive hangover and only fuzzy memories of how she got there. She has vague flashes of having her first ever one-night stand with a man s ...more
Quick recap: Jackie Brighton is a 27-year-old docent working at a museum. One night she gets super drunk & wakes up two days later in a dumpster. Turns out she's been turned into a Succubus. Succubi are made when an angel has sex with a human & a vampire bites the same human. Both become the human-turned-succubi's master & can control what the human does. Jackie becomes reaquainted with the angel who helped turn her & her completely idiotic adventures begin.

After a night of drunken, slutty, lovemaking with a stranger, Jackie Brighton wakes up in dumpster. She was so drunk, she doesn’t remember how she got in the dumpster, but the homeless man in the alley informs her a tall, dark haired man dropped her in there – ...more
Jackie Brighton kind of reminded me of Bridget Jones. She had a good heart but kept making decisions that made situations worse. It was hilarious. I couldn't decide between Noah and Zane as her companion, but I know I will continue this series.

I’m not quite sure what rating to give this book. I really, really liked it so I’m bouncing around 4.5 stars to a perfect 5 stars! What I loved about Gentlemen Prefer Succubi was that it was a fun, upbeat book that had a very interesting take on succubi, vampires and angels. I was completely sucked into the world that Myles had created. There is enough mythology behind her world that makes it intriguing and yet not too overbearing with its details. It was i ...more
The good points for me. Its funny, has a great story line, hot sex, to me the book doesn’t really get good until you met Zane , but then of course, you end up finding out he started the whole thing grr.., I liked Noah but, I never got to really know Noah in depth as a character. I liked the queen the best you get a little on her background to know more why she is like she is..
Bad points for me. Jackie was on my last nerve and again I never got to really know Jackie’s characte ...more
Geeky Jackie our heroine of the story gets turned into a succubus without her consent and she is trying to still live a normal live without changing anything, except for one problem...Her whole appearance has changed. She is even more sexier than before and all the men are noticing and want a piece of her. I liked Jackie. ...more
I'm too pissed off! This book was a wreck since the begining, but it had its moments, so all the time I was thinking Hm... this is silly and chauvinistic and plain stupid, but surely something coherent is about to happen and the book will turn out to be a good one.
Guess what? It wasn't.
There are just too many things wrong with this book, the heroin is a dumb, formely fat and ugly museum docent without an onze of self-esteem or an inch of depth whose only achievement in the story was to bec ...more

Oh, not to mention you're now undead, immortal and a succubus, with one vampire master and one angel master who you must answer to. Slight problem with that however. You don't know your fanged "father" and are seriously trying to ditch your winged o ...more
Unfortunately, with all those high expectations for the book, it was really easy to disappoint me. I didn't necessarily dislike it and I did enjoy reading it. I think the main problem was that I felt like it had an idea with so muc ...more
Her lipstick was all over his face, and she had a cat-licked-the-cream smile on your lips, her eyes bleached silver. "You have no shame, do you," I said.
"None whatsoever," she replied, wiping the corners of her mouth with a manicured fingertip. "Doesn't do a lick of good in this line of work."
I enjoyed this book from start to finish. It was a quick and easy read. Now that once geeky Jackie has now been turned into a Succubus against her will, she tries to keep all her ties to humanity ...more
A few hours and a couple cups of coffee later (and quite a few potty breaks due to all that coffee, come to think of it) and I had finished the book. I couldn't stop r ...more
Gentlemen Prefers Succubi is the first book in the Succubus Diaries series and it is amazing. I love the world that Jill Myles created. Jackie is a museum docent, who after too many drinks wakes up in a dumpster with no idea of how she got there. Used to being t ...more
The love triangle that forms in this book doesn't make me feel sorry for Jackie, but envious! Ha! The sex scenes are hot and there is a ton of sexual tension.
I think Myles "knocked it out of the park" with this book a ...more
I am definitely going to enjoy reading the next book in this series!
And actually, I give Gentlemen Prefer Succubi 4.5 stars, but unfortunately that isn't an option on this site.
The protagonist was Jackie. She is nerdy & lived an extremely sheltered life. Jackie i suspect has a ton of growing up to do.
Zane is definitely the self sacrificing hero. He wants Jackie safe & happy. Jackie seems to be his priority. That's not to say he isn't manipulative the ma ...more
