Review: Succubi Like it Hot by Jill Myles


NOBODY SAID SUCKING WAS EASY.

With a hot new figure, her dream job as an archaeologist, and two gorgeous boyfriends to scratch her seductive Itch — an angel and a vampire — Jackie Brighton is totally getting the hang of life as a succubus. Then she accidentally knocks the pizza guy unconscious with her touch. Great — she's cursed. After striking a deal to get the curse lifted by a crafty demon, Jackie and her best friend Remy take a road trip to deliver a cryptic message to the nation's oldest succubus. Unfortunately, neither of her jealous lovers is talking to Jackie right now, and due to the curse, she's desperate to get her Itch scratched very soon. Their journey gets weirder with every mile — demonic possession, a charming stalker, a cryptic warning — and when they get to New Orleans, Jackie discovers a dangerous catch to her supernatural bargain. Someone wants her dead — again. Can a brainy vixen in a miniskirt outsmart the forces of evil?


This is the second book in Jill Myles Succubus Diaries series and it's even better than the first. You may recall that I reviewed the first one, Gentlemen Prefer Succubi. If not, then check it here.

Succubi Like It Hot picks up in the life of Jackie Brighton, newly made succubus, and her cohorts. We have the rock solid and sexy fallen angel Noah, the bad boy but terribly sweet vampire Zane, and my personal fave the hilarious sister succubus Remy. In this installment Jackie and her men go through some rough spots in their relationship and they don't have a lot of time to really work things out because Jackie's been cursed and if she doesn't get the curse lifted, it's gonna be the end for her.

For part of the story we have a bit of a mystery or two going on. There's a new mysterious guy that says he wants to help Jackie but he seems to be following her around and Jackie's not sure if she can trust him. Then we have the million dollar question of who cursed Jackie in the first place and *gasp* could it be one of her lovers?!

There were hijinks and laughs but there were also some very touching and almost heartbreaking moments in this book. There's a certain scene towards the end that features Zane that I've re-read like 3 times. I can't help it. It's just too good.

If you enjoy adventure, laughs and smokin hot sexin then you'll love this book. I still found Jackie to be a bit annoying at times, but I also understand that this whole immortal thing is kind of a new gig for her. I'm hoping as she adjusts to her new life she'll wise up a bit.

This book gets a B+.

Twimom227 said...

You too are cracking me up! I don't know which is more entertaining... The review or the comments! Wendy: go read the book!!

I agree that Zane really won my heart over in this book. But Noah did a little too. *sigh* who can complain with 2 hot males?!

I found Jackie to be a little less annoying in this book than the first. She started really taking charge near the end of the book. I hope that carries on to the next book. I can't wait to read it!!

The Queen B said...

@Twimom227 I know! When Noah got all bossy? Hot stuff. I confess I thought of you when I wrote the part about "the scene." ::sniff::
I wonder if I beg prettily if I can nab the third one to review *sigh*

Jill Myles said...

*wags eyebrows*

It depends on how prettily you ask...

(and er, when i finish writing it)

Glad you liked book two. :)

The Queen B said...

Well, I don't wanna toot my own horn...but I've been known to do a pretty bit o beggin. :P
