Living as a succubus has a bit of a learning curve, but with sexy fallen angel Noah to scratch her sensual Itch, Jackie Brighton is finally starting to feel ahead of the game. She almost doesn’t miss her gorgeous vampire master Zane—or his sinful, teasing mouth. She’s trying to convince herself of that, anyway.

But Jackie’s past mistakes catch up with her, spinning her life out of control once more. Just as her friend Remy’s inner demon comes out to play, Noah and Jackie are arrested by the angelic Serim Council. When Jackie seizes the chance to escape, she falls right into Zane’s waiting arms. As she’s pulled into a game of cat and mouse between vampires and angels, she finds she must also choose between the two men in her life. Can she decide between Noah and Zane, or will she lose everything she’s ever wanted? Because there’s more at stake than just her heart. . . .

MY TAKE:  I've mentioned in several of my reviews how much I value humor in books.  My Fair Succubi hit that mark dead center.  This book has some hilarious moments that really do make the reader laugh out loud.  While this is the third book in The Succubus Diaries series, it can be read as a stand alone story.  The first two books Gentlemen Prefer Succubi and Succubi Like It Hot are also fabulous reads.  This is a really fun series to become engrossed in.

Jill Myles has kept the bar up to her high standard with this latest installment.  The love triangle of Jackie, Noah and Zane continues with loads of intrigue and drama.  Many of Jackie's mistakes are finally catching up to her and wreaking havoc with her life and plans.  Of course, those around her seem to pay more for her screw-ups than she does; but they love her anyway!  She's definitely one of those "heroines" who can really fall into a pile of it and come out smelling rosy..

The plot is full of excitement and lots of steam with very well written characters. I really feel that Jackie and her boy toys along with the other supporting cast make this story.  The author is a master of dialogue and description.  One of my favorite new guys is Ethan, his lack of social skills provides several humorous moments.  In his defense, he really didn't get any training or even a crash course in how to deal with mere mortals and lesser beings.  Jackie's wisecracking best gal pal Remy is back and the center of her own chaotic drama.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a good, rollicking tale with loads of steam and fun!  

Out of 5 JEWELS, I give it:

Gentlemen Prefer Succubi (Succubus Diaries)  Succubi Like It Hot (The Succubus Diaries)  My Fair Succubi (The Succubus Diaries)
