Recommended for: have your fave headache medicine ready for this one

I must be getting old, 'cause I really have no patience with these immature characters this time around. It is very hard to care about a couple who treat each other in such a deplorable, disrespectful, vile way. Oh, the things they do to each other in the name of so called love!

And don't even get me started on Georgina! She definitely needs to stop her reluctant succubus act and embrace her slutty personality. I mean, she can repeat as much as she wants that she does not like being a succubus, sleeping with random men and sucking out their life energy. But the fact is, she totally does! She will sleep with just about anyone - a guy she doesn't like and a guy she likes, a guy who will give her energy and a guy who is so evil he has none left, a guy she doesn't know or a guy who knows both her and her boyfriend. She will sleep with men because she is in a bad mood and needs some juice to perk her up, because she just had a fight with the man she supposedly loves, because she needs a favor from some sleaze bag, because a guy nearby is hot. But it is not even physical, she is an emotional cheater too. Ag!

With all that, I am giving Succubus Dreams 4 stars. Melodrama! Angst! Hot sex! Fun dialog! Mythology! Even though the main characters are morally bankrupt, the story is still entertaining as hell.

haha, This series sounds similar to the Laurel K Hamilton Anita Blake series, in which they're awful but good and you can't help but read them
