Friday's (Not-So) Short Review: Cattitude by Edie Ramer



Title: Cattitude
Author: Edie Ramer
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Smashwords
Source: Review copy from author
Format: E-book
“It's all in the Cattitude...
After Belle the cat switches bodies with a psychic on the run from a murderer, she wants her perfect cat body back instead of this furless human one. But she doesn't count on falling in love with her former owner. Or that a CEO and a beauty queen want to use up her nine lives. Now is her chance to prove anything a human can do, a cat can do better.” 
Belle has a cat’s dream life next to her lovely owner Max, but when evil Caroline set her eyes on Max and his wallet Belle knows she has to do anything in her paws to stop her advances. Caroline knows that Belle is an obstacle in her plans to get Max and decides to get rid of Belle throwing her onto a speeding car on the road.
Sorcha is a psychic who got involved with the wrong man, while trying to escape from him she gets into a car accident with a cat, a cat that came out of nowhere to her windshield. After the accident something even freakier occurs, Sorcha and Belle the cat exchange bodies. Scared in her new cat-body Sorcha escapes to the forest, leaving Belle in her human body behind.
Max is returning back home and sees the accident on the side of the road, immediately he stops to help, he founds Sorcha/Belle who begs him not to take her to the hospital, in the spur of the moment Max decides to take her to his house.
Belle is in shock, she knows Caroline tried to kill her but she doesn’t understand what had happened and why she is in a human body. Belle doesn’t like her new hairless, graceless body; she wants her feline body back. Belle needs to find Sorcha soon, before it’s too late to change back. The questions are: will Sorcha want her body back? And after seeing how Max is looking at her, will Belle want to be her old self again? or will she give it a chance to be human and maybe be more to Max that just his pet? 

As you may have guess I’m a cat person, I have a beautiful cat and saw many of her characteristics reflected in Bella, making this book more enjoyable and at the same time a little bit creepy.

Mrs. Ramer does an excellent job with Belle; it is obvious she knows about cats and their behaviors. Belle is funny, smart and of course with tons of attitude, she is a cat, what else can you expect.
I loved how real Belle’s adaptation to her new body felt, same with her discovery of new things as food and books. I also loved how she may be in a human body but she is still a cat to the core.

Wishing she could show her unconcern by lifting her leg and licking her thigh, she settle for giving him her I’m-a-cat-and-you’re-not look.

“Are you coming” Max asked.
She glided past him, out of the room. “I have important things to do.” She glance back to make sure he wouldn’t pounce and grab her the way he did when he wanted to take her to the vet.
Even Max wasn’t perfect.

Max is cute and caring. Since the dead of his father when he was just barely a teenager he has become the protector of his family and now of course of Sorcha/Belle too.

Max is attracted to Sorcha/Belle and her carefree outlook in life. Sorcha/Belle is discovering new and unexpected feelings for Max, it’s almost as if her new human body is betraying her into feeling things she shouldn’t be feeling for Max.
Max-Sorcha/Belle relationship was a bit creepy because at the end she is a cat in a human body but if you can overlook that little detail you will find them perfect for each other.

The secondary characters all add something to the story, from Sorcha the psychic, now in Belle’s body to the little girl Gwen, who is taking care of her and giving her the love and protection Sorcha had never had. To Max siblings Ted and Tory and of course I can’t leave behind Phil the not-so bad guy.

My final thought: Cattitude is a very funny and well-written romance history, with a nice pace and entertaining characters. The story has some twist and turns and many laughing out loud moments. All this together made of Cattitude a very enjoyable and difficult-to-put-down book.
I recommend Cattitude to all cat lovers and to anyone who wants to read an easy and funny chick-lit novel.

Review: Where Demons Fear to Tread by Stephanie Chong


Title: Where Demons Fear to Tread
Author: Stephanie Chong
Series: The Company of Angels, book 1
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: MIRA
Source: Review copy from publisher
Format: E-book
“Fledging guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair dares enter Devil's Paradise nightclub on a mission—to retrieve the wayward Hollywood "It Boy" she's assigned to protect. But she's ambushed by the club's owner, arch demon Julian Ascher. The most powerful demonic entity in Los Angeles, Julian is handsome as sin, a master of temptation who loves nothing more than corrupting pleasure–seeking humans. He won't release the lost soul Serena is supposed to guard. Unless she accepts his dangerous wager…After the disastrous way his human life ended, Julian vowed that no woman would get the better of him again. Yet this sexy–sweet angel, smelling of fresh ocean air and happiness, triggers centuries–old feelings. Now, their high–stakes game of seduction, where angels fall from grace and where demons fear to tread, will lead them either to an eternity in hell.or a deliciously hot heaven.”
Where Demons Fear to Tread is book one and the debut novel of The Company of Angels series by Stephanie Chong.

Serena St. Clair has been a guardian angel for almost a year; her latest protégé is Nick Ramirez, a prominent raising Hollywood star who loves to party hard and too often.
Serena is trying to stop Nick’s debauchery, for that reason she follows him to the Devil’s Paradise nightclub where Nick has been partied a lot lately. But Serena didn’t know she was getting into a demon’s den. Devil’s Paradise is one of the clubs own by the L.A. Arch-demon Julian Ascher.
Julian is one of the most powerful Arch-demons, one who is famous for corrupting young souls, especially those of innocent women.
As soon as Julian notices Serena in his club he knows he wants to have her, she too pure and innocent to let her pass. After meeting her he realizes she is a fledgling angel, an angel he wants to make fall and hard. As any good demon he uses all kind of deceptions and traps to manipulate her and get her to accept to spend a week with him in Las Vegas, also known as Sin City.
Serena is attracted to a demon, she knows she shouldn’t be but Julian is just too sexy not too feel anything. Now Serena has made a deal with him and has accepted to spend a week in Sin City with Julian in exchange for the protection of somebody precious to her. A week in which many things could happen…

When I saw the beautiful cover of Where Demons Fear to Tread I knew I have to read it. Who can resist that cover?
Lately we are seeing an increased in the Angels/Demons’ books. I guess angels and demons are the new werewolves and vampires. 

I had some problems with Serena and this made me enjoy Where Demons Fear to Tread a little bit less than if I would have liked her better, as you may know it is very difficult to connect with a story when you don’t connect with one of the main characters.
My problem with Serena was that she was too innocent, too selfless, too self-sacrificing, too pure, too beautiful… in summary she was too good to be true. Also I prefer strong heroines and this was not the case with Serena, completely the opposite.

Julian was different and I liked him a lot better than Serena. He is a demon and behaves like one. He is a wicked, sexy alpha who wants to make women paid for what one did to him years ago.

For me their relationship had its up and downs, I blame this in my difficulty to relate with Serena. Also she is supposed to be innocent and pure but almost immediately after meeting Julian she is thinking about going down and dirty with him; this is contradictory with how her character is depicted. Despite this there are very nice and sexy moments between these two. At the end Serena found her strength and her actions got a bit better.

The secondary characters are very interesting, especially Lucianna, she is twisted and evil, a villain in all the sense of the word. She brought the drama and the danger to the story. I would love to know more about her and hope to see her in future books.
Nick was an immature, spoiled rich kid who just wanted to be love. Sadly when our main characters were getting what they wanted poor Nick got forgotten in the middle of the drama and got the worst of a bargain. The end about Nick “future” is left open and I’m sure he will be an important part in the books to come.

Even though I had some issues with Serena I can say I enjoyed reading Where Demons Fear to Tread. Mrs. Chong writing is spotless, solid and fluid, with an interesting world building. Where Demons Fear to Tread is a story in which love conquers all. The only complaint I have about the story is that sometimes it was a bit too religious (for me), this may have been a problem for me but it may not be a problem for others.
All in all Where Demons Fear to Tread is a nice debut novel. If you are into angels and demons or good against evil this is a book you may enjoy.

Double Review: Good Girls Don’t AND Bad Boys Do by Victoria Dahl


Title: Good Girls Don’t AND 
Bad Boys Do
Author: Victoria Dahl
Series: Donovan Brothers Brewery, books 1 & 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Harlequin
Source: Review copy from publisher
Format: E-book


Good Girls Don’t 
“Too much of a good thing… With her long ponytail and sparkling green eyes, Tessa Donovan looks more like the girl next door than a businesswoman—or a heartbreaker. Which may explain why Detective Luke Asher barely notices her when he arrives to investigate a break–in at her family's brewery. He's got his own problems—starting with the fact that his partner, Simone, is pregnant and everyone thinks he's the father. Tessa has her hands full, too. Her brother's playboy ways may be threatening the business, and the tension could tear her tight–knit family apart. In fact, the only thing that could unite the Donovan boys is seeing a man come after their "baby" sister. Especially a man like Luke Asher. But Tessa sees past the rumors to the man beneath. He's not who people think he is—and neither is she.”
Good Girls Don’t is book one in the Donovan Brothers Brewery Trilogy by Victoria Dahl.

I’m a fan of Victoria Dahl’s books; so when I heard about this series, based on three siblings who own a brewery, I knew I have to read it. Sadly Good Girls Don’t didn’t live up to my expectations. I’m not saying it’s a bad book, because it is not, it was just that I had many issues with some of its characters, especially with its main character, Tessa; this made it very difficult for me connect with the story.

Tessa’s parents died in a car accident when she was fourteen and since then her older brother Eric, who was twenty-four at the time, has taken the reins of the business and the family. Her other brother Jamie was just sixteen when the accident happened.
Now Tessa and Jamie are in the late 20s and are part of the business.

The problem I had with Tessa was that she was a liar and a manipulative person, she may have had the best intentions at heart and was doing it to keep her family together but the way she behaves was deplorable. She was also very clingy with her brothers, especially with Jamie.
Tessa has good things too, she loves her brothers and she is strong, and she is a go-doer, but sadly the negative points were stronger than the positive and half of the book if not more I was mentally screaming at her and rolling my eyes because of her actions.

Luke is neither an alpha nor a beta, he is just a “gentleman”. I liked him, he is caring and has his own issues, but at least he is trying to resolve them. I like that he gave a piece of his mind to Tessa, making her see the wrong in her actions. There is some kind of story behind his divorce, it’s supposed to be something very serious/bad but when we learn the truth is something very simple and not very important.

I really like Jamie, I think he is more than what people believe of him and I was very eager to read his story in Bad Boys Do.

I have mix feelings with Eric, he took responsibility for his family and business when he was very young, kudos for that, but he is too stiff and is always seeing the bad and wrong in Jamie. I think he needs to get laid very bad, I hope he gets some in Real Men Will.

There is a mystery around the break-in of the brewery and its culprits were a complete surprise for me. Same with Luke’s partner’s baby-daddy, that was another interesting surprise.

Even though I have my problems with Good Girls Don’t I still enjoyed Mrs. Dahl fun and sexy writing style. The story and setting were also good and interesting. I’m pretty sure if I hadn’t had had a problem with Tessa this would have been a great book.

My Verdict: 3 Paws

Bad Boys Do

“Olivia Bishop is no fun. That's what her ex-husband said. And that's what her smart bob and glasses imply. So with her trademark determination, Olivia sets out to remake her life. She's going to spend time with her girlfriends and not throw it all away for some man. But when an outing with her book club leads her to a brewery taproom, the dark-haired beauty realizes that trouble—in the form of sexy Jamie Donovan—may be too tempting to avoid.Jamie Donovan doesn't mean to be bad. Sure, the wild streak in his wicked green eyes has lured the ladies before. Now it's time to grow up. He's even ready for a serious romance. But how can that be when Olivia, the only right woman he has ever met, already has him pegged as wrong?”

Bad Boys Do is book two in the Donovan Brothers Brewery Trilogy by Victoria Dahl.

Since I met Jamie in Good Girls Don’t I wanted to read his story, I knew there was a lot more to him behind the bad boy façade he is portrayed in and I was very glad to find out I was right.

Jamie is not just cute, sexy and caring but he is also misunderstood. The death of his parents affected him more than anyone could imagine, in certain way he feels responsible for their deaths and he has never shared his feelings with anyone, for years he has been carrying this burden alone over his shoulders.

Jamie wants more in his life and is working towards his goal. He is tired of being described as a frivolous, immature and irresponsible man when that’s not the truth of whom he really is. He has made mistakes in life, but who hasn’t?

Olivia is coming out from a bad marriage, one in which she gave everything of her to her (ex) husband just to be exchange for a younger model, because of this she is an insecure woman who doesn’t know who she really is and what she wants in life. To add to that, her parents have diminished her since she was little girl.
I really liked Olivia at the beginning of the book, it was easy to identify with her but with the pass of the pages I started to dislike her behavior with Jamie, for not taking him serious and seeing him as the others see him, just a guy to have fun with. At the end she restored my faith in her, but I’m not sure if it was a little too late.
What I liked the most about Olivia was that she grows trough the pages, she  starts to recover her confidence and starts to do with her life something that would make her happy in the future.

The romance between this two was fun and sexy, with many hot scenes at the best Victoria Dahl’s style.

Tessa is still the same Tessa of Good Girls Don’t. As before she is still a living drama and trying to manage her bothers lives. We see some of Luke and their relationship and it's clear they are more serious and stable.

Eric, oh, Eric. I really want to hate him because of the way he treats Jamie, but there is something there that doesn’t let me do it. In Bad Boys Do Eric still has a stick up to his… spine. I’m eagerly looking forward to read his story in Real Men Will, and I really hope to see his heroine bringing him to his knees.

In general I really liked Bad Boys Do, I can say I liked it a lot more than Good Girls Don’t. I find it a very enjoyable read with very real characters, from Olivia to her all too real ex-husband Victor, from sweet and sexy Jamie to creepy and mysterious Wallace.
The story in Bad Boys Do is not just a sexy story it is an emotional one, one that would have you crossing your fingers and wishing for a happy ending.
The sibling’s conflicts were a bit too much sometimes, I really hope their issues would be better addressed and solved in Real Men Will.

My Verdict: 4 Paws

Friday's (Not-So) Short Review: Lord of Rage by Jill Monroe


Title: Lord of Rage
Author: Jill Monroe
Series: Royal House of Shadows, book 2
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Harlequin
Source: Review copy from publisher
Format: E-book
“Princess Breena had been dreaming of her warrior lover when she was ripped from her Elden castle and thrown into a strange, dangerous realm. Lost and alone, she prayed for survival and vengeance for her stolen kingdom. She found both in a woodland cottage…in a dark bear of a man.The golden-haired beauty had eaten his food and slept in his bed when Osborn found her. Though he wanted to awaken his virgin princess to carnal pleasures, Breena wanted more—including his warrior skills. Skills the once-legendary mercenary had long buried. Now Osborn had a choice—risk his life or deny his princess her fairy-tale ending.” 
Lord of Rage is book two in the Royal House of Shadows series, this installment is written by Jill Monroe.

Ten years ago Osborn and his father are away from home, it’s Osborn’s initiation as a warrior. They belong to a tribe of Berserks who are famous for their fighting skills. After Osborn’s successful initiation as a Berserk they return to the village to find chaos and death. Taking advantage that fathers and sons were away because of their sons initiations, vampires wearing the military uniform of the kingdom of Elden have attacked and killed everybody in the village including Osborn’s mom and sister. As fathers return with their sons they are also eliminated. The last survivor of the fight is Osborn who later finds his two little brothers, Bernt and Torben, alive and hiding in a cave. Since that day Osborn has taken them under his care and has swear to avenge his family from the Kingdom of Elden. Osborn has done all kind of things to survive and to provide to his brothers. Things he is not very proud of.

Princess Breena of Elden has magic as her mother, she can go into others dreams and for a while she has been dreaming about an unknown sexy warrior.
The palace is under attack. The king and queen know they are going to die, but just before that happened they used their last magic strength to send the princess and princes away for their protection.
Breena awakes in an unknown place and with not recollection of events; the only things in her mind are Survive and Avenge. She doesn’t know where those thoughts are coming from or what had happen to her. After wandering aimlessly for days she finally arrives to a cabin. Osborn and his brothers live in the cabin. Breena and Orborn recognize each other for their dreams. Breena is sure she has find Osborn because he is the key to solve her mystery but Osborn doesn’t trust easily and wants her to leave. After some time and talks he agrees to teach her how to fight but still he doesn’t know she is the princess of Elden.

I really like Breena, she is a very strong character and doesn’t take no for an answer. She knows her limitations but also her attributes. She is ok with Osborn not fighting her fights for her, and she does her best effort to become the warrior her people need.

Osborn is a very alpha male with a tortuous past and an unknown future. He took responsibility for his two little brothers when they were 4 and 5 and he was just a 15 years old boy. Since then his life has been about caring and protecting them as best as he has known. And the only thought in his head has been revenge his family.

I really like Breena and Osborn's relationship, theirs is also a Mine-At-First-Sight but what I loved the most was that they don’t jump their bones immediately; both fight their attraction, increasing the tension between them making it more interesting and fun. And at the same time making it more believable.

I really love Osborn brothers, they are very cute and behave like kids their age should. Life with Osborn hasn’t always been easy but they know he is doing his best for them.

My final thought: If you have read my review of Lord of the Vampires by Gena Showalter (book one of this series) you’d know that sadly that book wasn’t for me and I couldn’t finish it. I’m happy to inform you that Lord of Rage was different not only I finished but I liked it.
I didn’t know these books were going to have a children stories theme, but while reading Lord of Rage I could easily discerned it in the story and I can say I really like the take on Goldilocks and The Three Bears.  Lord of Rage was my first book by Jill Monroe and I’m sure it won’t be my last.

My Verdict: 3 ½ Paws

Review: The Evil Inside by Heather Graham


Title: The Evil Inside
Author: Heather Graham
Series: Krewe of Hunters, book 4
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Mystery, suspense
Publisher: Mira
Source: Review copy from publisher
Format: E-book
“For as long as it has stood overlooking New England’s jagged coastline, Lexington House has been the witness to madness…and murder. But in recent years the inexplicable malice that once tormented so many has lain as silent as its victims. Until now…A member of the nation’s foremost paranormal forensic team, Jenna Duffy has made a career out of investigating the inexplicable. Yet nothing could prepare her for the string of slayings once again plaguing Lexington House – or for the chief suspect, a boy barely old enough to drive, much less kill.With the young man’s life on the line, Jenna must team up with attorney Samuel Hill to pinpoint who – or what – is taking the lives of those who get too close to the past. But everything they learn brings them closer to the forces of evil stalking this tortured ground.”
The Evil Inside is book four in the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham.

Attorney Samuel Hall is returning to his native Salem, Massachusetts for a well deserved short vacation after an exhausting case. Late at night Sam is on his way to his Salem’s home when he encounters a young boy covered in blood in the middle of the road. He stops to assists him and calls the authorities. When the police arrive they identified the boy as Malachi Smith. Malachi is arrested on the scene and charged with the murders of his family. Sam knows the evidence implicates Malachi but something in his gut tells him the boy is innocent.
Jenna Duffy is a member of a special FBI team known as the Krewe of hunters. They specialize in paranormal cases, Jenna specialty or ability is call post-cognition, it means she can talk to ghosts and in certain cases she can see what happened in the past when she is present in a room, almost like a residual reading.
When Jenna receives a call from Jamie, requesting her help with Malachi’s case, Jenna cannot say no to her favorite uncle and accepts to help him. Jamie is Malachi’s psychologist, he knows Malachi better than anyone and he is certain Malachi is innocent. Jamie also contacts Sam requesting his help as a lawyer. After some consideration Sam accepts to represent Malachi as his attorney pro-bono.
To be able to find out the truth about the murders Jenna and Sam need to work together, as a team, but there is a problem, Sam is a non-believer and kind of mocks Jenna’s “gift” and Jenna thinks Sam is a pompous man, and to add to this there is a unequivocal attraction between this two, as they say, opposites attracts.

Jenna is a very likeable character; she knows her gift is not a normal one and not everybody is going to accept it but she is ok with that, she has come a long way accepting it herself and now she uses to help others with the collaboration of her FBI team.

Sam is smart, cute and interesting. He comes as a non-believer but he is also not completely close to otherness. At the same time Sam is discovering himself, he thinks he is happy and has everything he wants in life but slowly he starts to question himself what is what he really wants to do with and in his life.

As with all romance novels we know our heroine and hero are going to end together, the question is how are they going to get to that point. In Sam and Jenna's case they are attracted from the beginning and the more they know each other the more the attraction grows and the more they start to care for each other.

The secondary characters are all interesting and diverse, from Jenna’s uncle Jamie to the Wicca members, from the mayor to the members of Malachi’s family conservative church. Some of the members of Jenna’s FBI team or Krewe Hunters are also present, it’s obvious there is a back-story with some of them but this didn’t affect or detract my enjoyment of The Evil Inside. It just made me want to pick up their books.

What I like the most about The Evil Inside was the setting. I have always wanted to visit Salem MA. and  have been very intrigue about the Salem witchcraft trials. They author not only does an amazing job describing the city of Salem but intermingles perfectly the historical facts about the witchcraft hunts with the story, to complete this, the events happens during Halloween. I don’t know of a more perfect setting for a mystery than this one.

If you love mystery, suspense, ghosts and a well-written story with a touch of history The Evil Inside is the book for you. The Evil Inside is a fast pace thriller, with some twists in the story that will surprise you and will have you on the edge of your seat.
The Evil Inside was my first novel by Heather Graham but I can guarantee you it won’t be my last.

My Verdict: 4 Paws

Review: Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead


Title: Succubus Revealed
Author: Richelle Mead
Series: Georgina Kincaid, book 6
Genre: Urban fantasy
Publisher: Kensington Publishing
Format: E-book
“In Georgina Kincaid, succubus and she-demon, #1 New York Timesbestselling author Richelle Mead has created one of her most enticing characters. But with a shot at love, and maybe even redemption, is the ultimate seductress finally going soft? Like hell she is. . .Georgina Kincaid has had an eternity to figure out the opposite sex, but sometimes they still surprise her. Take Seth Mortensen. The man has risked his soul to become Georgina's boyfriend. Still, with Lucifer for a boss, Georgina can't just hang up her killer heels and settle down to domestic bliss. In fact, she's being forced to transfer operations. . .to Las Vegas.The City of Sin is a dream gig for a succubus, but Georgina's allies are suspicious. Why are the powers-that-be so eager to get her away from Seattle—and from Seth? Georgina is one of Hell's most valuable assets, but if there's any way out of the succubus business she plans to take it—no matter how much roadkill she leaves behind. She just hopes the casualties won't include the one man she's risking everything for. . .”
Succubus Revealed is book six and last in the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead.

Georgina is happy with her life. Finally she is together with Seth, she has her friends and love ones around her; apart from a crappy Christmas job and her missing her old job at the bookstore, we could say her life is as she have wanted it to be for a long time. But Hell has other plans for her. Georgina receives a sudden transfer to Las Vegas, but her transfer is a little bit suspicious because it breaks Hell’s usual modus operandi. 
Georgina is send to Vegas for a weekend first to meet her new handler, and oh! big surprise is her favorite boss ever, also at her arrival she learns she is going to work with one of her best friends who also has been recently transfer to Vegas and during her weekend stay she finds her dreamed job too. Georgina is very excited about all that; even tough she is worried how things are going to work with Seth and the distance. Seth can’t move with her because his sister in law is still very ill and his brother needs him more than ever in Seattle.
But when Georgina returns to Seattle from her weekend in Vegas and starts to think with a cold head about her trip, she realizes everything was too perfect in Vegas for being just a coincidence. She shares her thoughts about it with Roman who promises to help her find out the truth. But sometimes the truth is a lot more than what you expected and in some cases a lot more than what you can handle.

Let’s start by telling you that I’m writing this review with mix feelings, not because of the quality of the book but because it is the last one of this wonderful series and I’m sure I’m going to miss Georgina and her gang.

Georgina has come a long way; we have seen her grow throughout the pages. She has made us laugh and even cry a bit and finally we are accompanying her to find the happy ending she so much deserves.

I have to be honest with you, I have never been a Seth fan, before Succubus Revealed I would have prefer if Georgina had her HEA with Roman but after reading Succubus Revealed I have become Team Seth.

Georgina and Seth’s love is one of those that transcend barriers. They can fight against it but sometimes there are things bigger than any of us can comprehend. I won’t give more away, if you a Georgina fan I’m pretty sure you know what I’m talking about, if not, go get the books and discover it for yourself.

We have a favorite saying among my friends: How can you tell if a demon is lying? His lips are moving.

Succubus Revealed is a book about love, friendship, intrigues, deceptions and acceptance. As I said before I don’t want to give much away, being the last book and all that, so let me just say that there were some characters that I wanted to kill with my own hands and others that broke my heart, some teary eyed scenes and other what! No, it can be! moments.
My favorite characters apart from Georgina were Roman and Carter, and I really wish Mrs. Mead write a spin-off series for them because I really would love to see and learn more about them.

I leaned my head against him. “Why are you so nice to me?”
“Because Carter’s not your only fan.” When I looked back up, I saw Roman’s green eyes were deadly serious. “You’re a remarkable woman, just by your own nature. Smart. Funny. Compassionate. But what’s really great is that you’re so easy to underestimate. I did when we first met, you know. And Hell is now. No matter what their reaction to …… is, I guarantee most of them doubt you have a chance. You’re going to prove them wrong. You’re going to break the unbreakable. And I’ll be there helping you, as much as I can.”

Did I told you I love Roman? *swoon*

The only complaint I have about Succubus Revealed and my reason not to give it 5 paws is that there were some side stories that didn’t provide anything to the story and felt more like page fillings than anything else (bowling anyone?), also some important situations in my opinion were left unresolved.

All in all Succubus Revealed is a great conclusion to a great series. If you are a fan of the series is a book you need to read and if you haven’t read Georgina’s books yet you need to do it as soon as possible. Georgina Kincaid series is too good to let it pass.
I really admire Mrs. Mead for ending her series in a high tone and not drag them endlessly as other authors tend to do. So, kudos to you Mrs. Mead.

My Verdict: 4 ½ Paws
