Official summary: "Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals — all child’s play to a succubus like her. Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend’s wedding is a different story. Georgina isn’t sure which is worse — that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses. Still, there are distractions. Georgina’s roommate, Roman, is cluttering her apartment with sexual tension. Then there’s Simone, the new succubus in town, who’s intent on corrupting Seth. But the real danger lies in the mysterious force that’s visiting her thoughts, trying to draw her into a dark, otherworldly realm. Sooner or later, Georgina knows she’ll be too weak to resist. And when that happens, she’ll discover who she can trust, who she can’t — and that Hell is far from the worst place to spend eternity..." (

How I obtained the book: Bought for $2 at charity book sale

My commentary:
  • One thing that I both love and hate about Mead's books is how she can utterly break your heart over and over again, but you just can't stop reading her books. 

Memorable quotes:
  • "Guilt was probably the worst culprit of all when it came to stupid behavior." ~ Georgina
  • "I think our civilization has declined when scrunchies have become the prevalent form of hair ornamentation." ~ Seth
  • "Love in the real world doesn't usually work out the way stories make us think it should. We don't always get fairy-tale endings. People split up and move on. Just because you love someone doesn't mean you can't love someone else." ~ Georgina
  • "Dreams can be lies, but truth is truth." ~ Oneroi #1
  • "There is no greater evil than ignorance and the destruction of genius. Ignorance has been responsible for more death, more bigotry, and more sin than any other force. It is the destroyer of mankind." ~ Tavia
  • "Your truths are worse than your lies." ~ Oneroi
  • "When you worked for Hell, everyone was guilty until proven innocent." ~ Georgina
  • "If you're going to become a villain, you might as well go the whole way." ~ Seth
  • "I'd rather spend my life alone than with someone who isn't you." ~ Seth to Georgina
