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...an...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.
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
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 i...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
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 love the humor and the way Myles describes her own succubus and her attributes. A succubus is a succubus does. Also Myles' hierarchy from angels to demons, their specs and their limitations.
I was going to...more
There were some genuinely funny moments in this book. But I admit to being one of those people who "have to know the back story" and to have her just wake up with no knowledge of what had been done to her. Fortunately, I had the friend who recommended this series to me alert me to the fact that there was a short story that told th...more
Ok, sounds good to me.
The biggest things that made me the most upset were:
1. Jackie. WTF?? She works in a museum, and is supposed to be smart-yet cannot follow the most basic of instructions? Um when Remy explains that making deals with Angels are bad...you just go oh ok and go make one? From the first time...more
I think for me that’s what k...more
the storyline so simple, fun reading & ga neko2 & bahasanya pun sangat enak diikutin tanpa ada cerita yg diperpanjang ga penting karna itu aq berani ngasih bintang 4 (ceritanya sih so so tapi enak banget diikutin jadi ga bosenin & dalam 1 malam aq berhasil nyelesaiin ke 3-3 nya hehehehehhee)

Jill Myles has managed to provide a new take on the origins of vampires and created an intriguing mythos for the fallen angels, the Serim, and the vampire/Serim love-child, the succubi. Unfortunately, Gentlemen Prefer Succubi is also a bit too brainless when fronted by the newly made succubus, Jackie. With a characterization that's a bit cliched, the frumpy museum docent (and if you don't know what a docent is when you start, you'll hear more than once tha...more
This is my first book of succubus , and I enjoyed it very much....more
Jackie , who were a chubby docent, turned to a succubus with a large craving for sex.
I don't know if it's just me, but I always take a like in the first male lead in a book [if there are a love triangle], and Noah just got in my head.
Jackie and Noah had some steamy sex scenes in the church's confessional and on the couch at Remmy's, and then he got "caught" by som...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
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
So here goes: The clue to what the book is about is that she is a succubus if you are not sure that this means then look it up.
In this book vampires and angles co-exist but only during their respective hours. meaning Angles can only be awake during the day, and the Vamps only at night. During their off hours they go into hibernation mode and fall asleep--out cold. The sunlight doesnt kill the vamps.
In this story, we meet Jackie Brighton who wakes up in a dumpster with little to no memory of the previou...more

The answer in the case of Gentlemen Prefer Succubi is: AWESOME!
For those that enjoy the sex scenes, these were hot, sweaty, sexy, and not too graphic. They were just right.
J'ai commencé ce roman l'esprit vide, sans aucun apriori, mais rapidement des craintes sont nées :
- il y a t il une vraie histoire avec de l'action derrière ces mots ?
- Serait ce une nouvelle œuvre purement érotique sans aucun intérêt ?
Oui pour la 1ère, et non pour la 2ème. Force m'est de reconnaitre qu'au final, je l'ai bien trouvé à mon goût. La 1ère partie est plutôt lente, et Jackie pleurniche un peu, se laisse pas mal mener par le bout du nez, mais que voulez vous, il faut bien poser et...more
A NOTE ABOUT FRIENDING: I will happily friend you back if you friend me! Goodreads is, after all, about discussing books we both love. I will NEVER self-promote my books to you. And if you self-promote your books to me, no matter how nicely, I'm deleting you off my list. Sorry. Go...more
