What’s a horny librarian to do?
I'm working at the library as usual, when in comes a man who looks like he just walked off a movie set. Intrigued, I seek him out, hoping to catch the eye of the ethereal creature. Instead, it is he who catches me, and I'm shocked when he gives me an offer I’d be mad to refuse.
An inner battle consumes me. Something about him seems off, and I can’t quite place it. But I also don't want this once-in-a-lifetime chance to shag the owner of a popular nightclub to completely pass me by.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on August 18, 2015
Cadence is working away in her role as a librarian as always. At least until Asher enters and she finds herself taken by him. An invitation to his club, a decision to accept, reveals that Asher is an incubus, and he offers her something she hasn’t experienced before. Something different.
While the work continues to follow Asher, and those he encounters, there is quite a lot more focus on Asher, his world, and what he does with himself. It also tells some background on the succubi and incubi in this universe that wasn’t really touched on all that much in the first. There is mention of his true form and so on again. It also is a bit clearer that the ones that Asher seems to be attracted to can see what his true eye colour is, which might mean something, but that isn’t dwelled on.
Cadence is a vastly different female lead than the previous work. She’s unsure, not clear on her own self worth, and in many ways, she wants something but cannot quite connect herself to that. Asher allows Cadence to explore her own sexuality and desires, which makes for some very hot erotica.
The work is balanced well I thought between the erotica and the storytelling, neither taking over the entire work but trying to coexist together. That all seemed to work well, but this work was slightly more erotic focused than the first was. The lead up to Cadence and Asher becoming intimate was lovely and worked well.
The humour in this work was quite strongly felt, especially in Cadence’s personality and comments she makes and I liked that for it gave her a voice, made the work different in its own way, and in being so wasn’t a carbon copy of the first work.
The characters are whole, the story is quite good, the scenes are telling. There are one or two uncomfortable moments in the work, but they add to the storytelling and not take away from it. They allow Cadence to learn about herself, on the one hand, but also that not everyone is nice.
There was one spelling mistake in the work that tripped me up. Asher notes that there are a pair of Succubi working for him. But that is spelled ‘Sucubi’ and that, of course, stopped me cold in the story.
Four out of five pitchforks.
Another good, romantic read with characters that are more than they are expected to be. In that, the promise of the first work came through in the second which was good to see.
Regrettably, the third and fourth works never appeared in this series. They were supposed to appear within a few weeks of the initial two works, but never did. There’s no explanation for that happening, and it’s a shame that the series didn’t continue as both works set up quite a good main character and seemed to promise there to be a lot more to discover.
It would have been nice to see that happen…
