Succubi Like It Hot by Jill Myles

Book Summery:
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?

My Review:
This second installment of The Succubus Diaries is just as scorching as the first. Again, if PNR isn't your among the types of books you like to read, this may not be the book for you. However, if you are a PNR fan, you are in for a treat. ;) Myles delves deeply into the mythology she has created, resulting in a richer, more satisfying story this second time around. The whole cast of characters are back; Remy, Noah, Zane, and Jackie. One thing that stood out to me was the evolution of Jackie's character. She is more independent, less clueless, dependent, and needy. That was a major improvement in my eyes. I also enjoyed meeting Delilah, who proved to be a most interesting charter. ;) Overall, this was a delightful, steamy read. A perfect fun read for adults who love PNR.

Favorite Quote:
"Drake glanced backward, then paled. 'Oh my god' he said, his voice a couple of octaves higher than it should have been.

'Don't be scared' I said, trying to keep my voice level. I glanced it the rear view mirror and saw Joachim's red eyes staring out from Remy's face, fixed unnervingly on me. 'It's just a little demonic possession, nothing to worry about.' " (p. 94-95).

Cover Art Commentary:
I hope that is Zane on the cover, because that is exactly what I pictured him to look like! :P
