Succubus Dreams has broken my heart for the second time, even though I knew what was coming! Although I had forgotten how it came about, so I still audibly gasped when these things did happen! Life has continued on as normal for Georgina and Company, except now there's a new succubus in town. And Georgina is tasked as mentor to Tawny who is probably the most inept succubus in history. Then Georgina starts having very vivid dreams which leave her drained by morning, and things with Seth seem to be more tense than usual.
I absolute love Succubus Dreams. Again it shows us just how much Georgina longs to be human, or at least how she aches for humanity. Her dreams, while happy, torment her because they show what can never be. Not to mention that no matter how many men she sleeps with, she can't hold a charge, which makes it harder to keep her lips off of Seth. And he's not making it any easier, because he does want her. Badly. Seth finally has some reactions to everything that is going on with him and Georgina. Obviously, their relationship is far from normal, and that's okay. But they still have real problems which cannot simply be put off on the fact that she's immortal and he's not. As much as I hated their fights, everything said is 100% spot on. I still don't have to like it though.
Aside from the relationship drama, Succubus Dreams also has an engaging plot. Tawny is a pretty humorous addition to the cast, because she just sucks so badly at being a succubus! Then there's the matter of an army of angels being in town, but not saying why. Georgina of course figures that out while trying to learn why she's being drained in her sleep. Very interesting stuff. Then there's the matter with one of the angels, and it almost made me cry! I don't think that happened the first time, but just aahh! My heart.
Succubus Dreams is one of those books that just rips your heart out. It's impossible to not get caught up in these character lives, even the secondary ones. I may know what's coming next but that didn't stop me from feeling the emotional ups and downs once again.
