Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead...

Series: Georgina Kindcaid (Book #1)
Published: August 1st 2007 by Bantam Books
Pages: 496
Rating: 5 stars
Age Recommendation: 16+
Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.
When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?

But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven't stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess getup complete with whip and wings. And she can't have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy's life. At least there's her day job at a local bookstore--free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't.

But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny...

"What an incredible debut novel! Succubus Blues is exciting, witty, sexy, intriguing and had me captivated from the first page." --Cheyenne McCray, author of Seduced by Magic
I thought that this book was completley AMAZING (to be honest amazing doesn't even say how great I thought this book was) and it being Richelle Mead's debut novel just makes this book even better for me, the writing in this book flows so well it seems like she has been a published author for years. The main thing that I love about this book series in the writing style, just like the Vampire Academy series she has made the characters seem human. The other thing I loved about this book was the love triangle between Georgina, Seth and Roman. There is also definitley a few twists in this book that I really didn't see coming which made this book really good aswell. I also loved the character of Georgina herself, her witty humour always entertained me. The age recommendation is there for a reason however, some senes in this book are quite graphic  as this book was written for the audience of adults, but if you are 16 or older I think you should be able to handel this series. Overall I though this book was an amazing debut for Richelle Mead and a really strong start to what looks like a really entertaining series.
