really liked it

So, I'll say it straight up: I don't like sex scenes in books. And yet, I love to read so much, and I'm mostly happy reading anything, so it sometimes happens that I find myself reading a book with graphic sex scenes. When that happens, the first question I ask myself is: What would this book be WITHOUT these sex scenes?
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.

And the book could have easily gone without them and not lost anything. I mean, this book really has everything. It's got (extraordinarily HOT) fallen angels, it's got (extraordinarily HOT and sometimes evil) vampires, it's got campy humor, it's got nerdy librarians (well, sort-of) and hot porn stars,. . . Best of all, it doesn't take itself too seriously, so you never feel like you're laughing at the book; you're laughing with it. :-) And when I say you'll be laughing, I mean it. This book is hilarious!

It's a super easy, fast-paced read, and ALL of the characters are likable in their own way (even the evil vampire queen). Part of it even takes place in Egypt; for someone like me, with an odd obsession with ancient Egypt, this was super exciting! My biggest problem was with this book was Jackie herself, the main character, the nerdy museum docent turned succubi. She was strong and witty and sharp and a totally enjoyable, likable character, but I wanted to know more about her past. She went through all these changes right in the beginning of the book, and so we only got to see "going through tough changes Jackie" and thus never really got to know her. I would have liked to get to know her.

I loved reading this book. So much so that I've already downloaded the sequel into my kindle and can't wait to get to reading it. HIGHLY recommended for all paranormal romance; think Gena Showalter, Kresley Cole.
