Review: Gentlemen Prefer Succubi by Jill Myles

Gentlemen Prefer Succubi
Author: Jill Myles
Publisher: Pocket Star; Original edition (December 29, 2009)
Pages: 368 (read on my Kindle)

Product Description from Amazon: Who Knew An Angel Could Get A Girl In So Much Devilish Trouble?
Jackie Brighton woke up in a Dumpster this morning, and her day has only gotten weirder. Her familiar B-cups have somehow become double Ds, her sex drive is insatiable, and apparently she had her first one-night stand ever...with a fallen angel. All she remembers is gorgeous Noah's oddly hypnotic blue eyes...and then a dark stranger whose bite transformed her into an immortal siren with a sexy Itch. With help from Noah, Jackie begins to adapt to her new lifestyle -- until she accidentally sends Noah into the deadly clutches of the vampire queen and lands herself in a fierce battle for an ancient halo with the queen's wickedly hot righthand man. Who just happens to be the vampire who originally bit her. How's a girl supposed to save the world when the enemy's so hard to resist?

My Thoughts: This book was not the light and fluffy read that the trailer or even the book description seems to hint at. I found the first half a little hard to get into. Jackie is confused about her new life and we are confused with her. She retains all of her hesitations about sexual relationships from her human life but now she is a succubi and must have sex every two days. I didn't care for Noah who is the fallen angel who has the one-night stand with her. He is both stuffy and sexy and doesn't seem to want to tell her anything. His attitude felt almost paternal to me (which was sort of a turn off.) I liked Zane, her vampire master, much better even though he lied to her frequently. He seemed to like her for herself. The world created with fallen angels who are active only during the day and vampires (who are also fallen angels) who are only active at night was interesting. Having a unfallen angel as one of the bad guys along with an evil vampire queen was interesting. As far as succubi stories, I like the Georgina Kincaid books by Richelle Mead better.
