First off, from the blurb (which is a great hook for me), we see that it's a classic "Don't ruin the friendship" story. It really is one of those things most people fear. However, from reading this, I don't think that the friendship was anything more than dating without the sex IMO. These two were handmade for each other. Throughout the book, I was so hoping that the jagoff ex wouldn't ruin the whole thing. He deserved to slink in what dark corner of the universe he slithered to.
Plus, this story has a military man in it. What gets me going like Niagara Falls sprouting from my eyes? Yeah ... not spoiling it for you. ;) What I found in these pages was some great writing, hot sex, and two people destined to spend the rest of their lives together. They got the roots of the relationship down with a solid friendship. Going to the next level just solidified it. Thanks for the awesome read, no matter how short. I'm still satisfied with the results....more

In fact, as a geeky players of Dungeons & Dragons, the succubus was often thrown in to tempt the male characters of the group. It was all fun and games until your friend's character's soul got sucked into oblivion or become a sex slave for life. So it's not out of the realm of possibility to have them be out for the one thing that fuels their existence and nothing more.
Enter Pris. She's sinned in the past and freely admits it. In fact, she's a bit ashamed of her former self before a demon fucked her into succubus service. What I like is she didn't totally get consumed by her guilt. She also didn't allow herself to be a doormat either. I'm a big fan of strong female leads. Too often the woman are swooning ninnies, allowing the men to be domineering apes.
Along comes Hugo and he's got a lot in store for Pris, making her wonder each day whether he'll end her life. Hugo knows what Pris is and he's trained very hard to track down and terminate any 'evil' supernatural being. He's arrogant but not prideful and really struggles through it all not to fall for Pris's charms. The kind of man who tries to see the good in everything and being that he's had his eye on Priscilla for a good bit, you just pray he's on the right track.
I don't want to give away the ending because, to me, it's the ultimate test for the characters. Kind of like the trust exercise of falling backwards into your partners arms and hoping they catch you instead of watching you fall for their entertainment.
there were times I wish I could see Hugo's side of things but, as this is totally from Priscilla's perspective, we don't get that aspect. It's the slight downside to first person storytelling, Not that it takes away from the overall story because it keeps you guessing on what the big old hunk has in store for his little succubus temptress.
