“I don't care," said Seth. "I would have done it. I would have sold my soul for you. You and me...I told you. Something's always going to keep us near each other...even if we aren't together.”

There was a lot of screaming at Georgina through the audiobook at the end of this for me. I NEED THE NEXT ONE NOW

I think I've finally figured out why I'm not that into this series. I'm a fan of both Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy and Dark Swan series, but for some reason I've had a hard time connecting with this one, and it wasn't until Book 4 that I realized what was bothering me. (Yeah, I'm a little slow on the uptake.) It's simply this: I believe in fidelity. Both emotionally and sexually.

The thing is, I'm pretty live and let live, so it doesn't really faze me if people want to live their lives in open

Have to admit, this was the book I was looking forward to the most in this re-read. And I know I could just easily go back to that scene anytime but that would mean missing out on Carter and Kayla and cheesecakes and that tortie. Oh and Hugh. I always seem to neglect to give Hugh some lovin'. I like that I got to experience this book again without the need to know what happens to Seth and Georgie IMMEDIATELY, though I have to admit the lead up to

I loooove this series.

This is one of my favorite UF series, ever. Admittedly, the first book is the weakest of them all, while book 4 is my favorite. The plot, characters and romance get better and better with each installment.
The love story has an incredible arc and it is absolutely beautiful. You'll need to go all the way to book 6 to find out how it ends, and it is utterly worth it.

Georgina Kincaid is a great strong female character with all her faults. Her insecurities and weaknesses make h

Sometimes it takes more courage to know when to retreat than to keep fighting.
In Succubus Heat #4, the new year begins badly, sinking Georgina into her own personal hell. She enters a rebound relationship with Dante, someone she had despised earlier for his dark magic ability. Her demon boss won't tolerate Georgina's morose attitude and sends her off on a temporary espionage assignment in Vancouver.

I'm awarding an extra half star to this book because dammit, I'm still talking about that office scene! I've read content from the mild to the taboo extreme in terms of steam level and this scene still remains one of my all time favorites of any book, any series. Why? Because it was unexpected from a character who I thought I had figured out. Man, I really loved the office scene.

Never mind that it's a Mead series, so of course I'm going to love the characters and plot. In t

Recommends it for: those who easily forgive liars and cheaters
Well, it's been much less agonizing to re-read this installment than the one before. Why? Because why worry about rotten people and their love troubles? It is a bold move on the author's part to create a couple as flawed as Georgina and Seth and expect readers to continue rooting for them. Now I only enjoy this rompy series for its cast of characters, killer dialog and smut. And when I hear Seth and Georgina praising each other's virtues or proclaiming their super-special soul mate love while (v ...more

“Are you crying, succubus?”
“It’s this book,” I said.

That is my favourite quote in this book,its so damn relatable cause I get so emotional and start crying when reading.I love everything about this book, I think this is my favourite in the series so far, everything was fast paced but not rushed and all my predictions about it were wrong which is a major good thing.

The writing is amazing as always, simple and easy words, no unnecessary figures of speech.

This book is well written and heart breakingly sad. I don't like Georgina Kincaid's choices and decisions in a lot of instances. She clearly lacks some serious impulse control.

On the otherhand, after reading seventeen books of Anita Blake being "forced" to be a whore by magic and other such things, and after all the other fiction I've read where women are "forced" to do the exact same things that Georgina does, I kind of really respect Richelle Mead. She doesn't take the easy way out.

If you are Canadian, you will most likely enjoy some of the cultural references in this book.

Ugh. Yup, Richelle Mead is trying to kill me with what she puts Georgina through. Even though my logical self says to calm the hell down, that Georgina will get her HEA, my freaked out emotional self wants to burn shit down. But I swear, I’m loving every minute of it!

I adore Georgina so much. She not only continues to be a great heroine, she keeps getting better and better. Even when she gets in her bitchy funks, she stays true with the wit and sarcasm she does so well.

The mystery is fantastic.

The feels I got while listening to Succubus Heat

Hopeless:  Georgina is angry, filled with self-loathing and trying to lose herself and escape the pain. In fact, she has pissed off Jerome (her Demon ruler) with all her antics. I feel for her and its breaking my heart. She is heartbroken and lashing out with a “never care” attitude. I know Seth loves her, but I am so angry. Seeing Seth and working at the bookstore with his super nice, chipper girlfriend Maddie would suck the life out of anyone.

4.5 emotional fangirl stars!

Once again I found myself completely wrapped up in Georgina's life. The book was thoroughly entertaining and despite it involving the supernatural, much of what happens in her life is pretty mundane. But I love her dearly. I think the narrator is amazing too. She just IS Georgina to me. I have a feeling the books are building up to something big. That ending had me my heart breaking so much so that I need to start the next book now.

What is it about the way Richelle Mead writes, that she is able to perfectly capture the pain of a romantic break-up? She somehow is able to make me relive the pain of feeling cut-off from a loved one, abandoned and dejected – it ain’t good! Thank goodness there is an interesting story woven in through this pain. Fans of Mead and Georgina, if you have stuck through this series for the first three books, you will want to read Succubus Heat. There is a payoff to the series and it is done quite wel ...more
As much as I adore these characters, there not ones that I can say I'm very proud of. They lie, they cheat and nine out of ten they are selfish and are out for there own gain. And yet, I wouldn't have any of them any other way.
That, is really saying something.

In short, I loved this book, and I was so happy to see Roman again and so happy things worked out.
But on to the main focus of this book. Seth. Georgina. Hell Yeah!!

These books only get better, how is this even possible? I want to give it 6 stars.

You wouldn't believe how many somersaults and plunges my stomach made while I was reading this, so many highs and lows, I can only compare it to a roller coaster. Please give me more Richelle.

I'm too caught up in my thoughts because of what happened to come up with a decent review, I have a lot on my mind right now.

Succubus Heat was hot! This one is by far the best book in the whole series.

This is how I imagine Seth and Georgina. I know they should be older but I don't care.

I started this one right after Succubus Dreams because I just had to know how things were going to turn out with Georgina and Seth. Some time has passed and Seth is still with Maddie and it hurts my heart every time I see them together. You can tell the Georgina is in just the state of depression and anger and she's really started to make Jerome pretty mad. She is sent to Canada to look into this group and also to spy on another demon for Jerome because he wants her out of his hair because he e ...more

"The unfortunate part about being a good liar, however, was that while I could get other people to believe my words, I didn’t believe them myself."

The third book in this series broke my heart. I think Seth's purpose was to really saved Georgina that time though it wasn't really good for the feelings of the readers.

Well, the fourth book was another thing. It was heartbreakingly sad and thoroughly disappointing.

Despite how much I like this book, am going to admit that Georgina really annoyed me very very much, I felt like punching her almost throughout the book cause of the poor decisions she made I mean for someone who has lived for like a millennia I was expecting her to be wiser

YAY - Seth finally channeled his inner O'Neill, at last! But at what cost? Oh man...

Succubus Heat is another fast page turner with a big dose of immortal intrigue, and best of all...lots of heat! Mead is so good at showing all the shades of gray, muddying up morals, ethics - there's no clear-cut right and wrong, good and bad. Her evil characters have touches of good in them, some more than others while the good characters (angels and humans with glowing souls) have flaws, some fall from grace -

Ah, more delicious Richelle Mead writing. I freaking love this series. We pick up a few months after the end of Succubus Dreams, with Georgina still pretty damn pissed off and depressed about Seth’s asshole behavior. But luckily (or unluckily), she gets embroiled in a hellish political showdown between her boss, Jerome (or He-Who-Looks-Strangely-Like-John-Cusack), and the archdemon of Vancouver. When Jerome goes missing–and when Georgina and her fellow Seattlite supernatural beings find themselv ...more

There's definitely a lot of personal development coming from our characters - I personally love how Georgina has grown, and how she makes bad decisions, again and again, and you shouldn't judge her for it. She is her own being and a flawed character. Not many can write that way.
This wasn't a 5 star review as usual for Mead's books, for the sole reason that the fantasy elements are turning out to be awfully confusing. I am in love with this series for the characters themse

“How come when mortals want things, their only option is to make a deal with Hell and sell their soul? Why can’t they make deals with God in exchange for good behavior?"

It was another of those rare moments when I’d surprised Carter. I waited for the glib answer I’d mentioned to Seth, something along the lines of goodness being its own reward. The angel considered for several seconds. "Humans make those deals all the time," he said finally. "They just don’t make them with God."

"Then who are they making them with?" I exclaimed.
