Jackie Brighton has died, but she hasn’t gone to Heaven. Thanks to some supernatural interference, the dorky museum docent has been reborn as a succubus–a sex vampire. Now she never has to sleep, looks like a supermodel, and must have sex every two days to feed the ‘Itch’ — quite a change from her old, boring lifestyle of pointing out museum paintings.
But the eternal life of a ‘Suck’…does. Literally. And it’s more than just the relationship troubles that a constantly horny immortal would have. Jackie will do anything to skip out on having the required sex with strangers…but in doing so, ends up blackmailed into running errands for the Heavenly Host. All she needs to do is get her hands on a missing halo before the vampire queen does and she’ll have control of the situation (and her raging hormones). Of course, choosing sides in a celestial turf war means that she also has to make a choice between the men in her (After)life: the handsome, brooding fallen angel Noah, or the dangerous and witty vampire Zane.

After a night of drunken, lovemaking with a stranger, Jackie Brighton wakes up in dumpster. She was so drunk, she doesn't remember how she got in the dumpster, but the homeless man in the alley informs her a tall, dark haired man dropped her in there - two days ago. The homeless man swears she was dead. Jackie thinks the homeless man is a little cuckoo - she may have been drunk, but she remembers the mind blowing sex with a blond haired man and she doesn't believe the man when he says she has been in there for two days. As she leaves the alley, she just happens to run into Mr. smexy blond hair man himself, Noah Gideon. Noah takes one look at her with spaghetti noodles stuck in her hair, and convinces her to eat lunch with him.
Noah is all flirty games, until Jackie mentions that she remembers getting bit - by Mr. dark haired man. Noah pales at this and fills Jackie in on what probably happened. Jackie was first bit by a vampire - Mr. dark hair, aka Zane, who left her in a very desirable mood. She then was put into Noah's path, and it was time for him to feed. Serim, or fallen angels feed by having sex. Voila - Jackie the succubus was "born." She now has two masters - a vampire, Zane and an angel, Noah. Oh, and she needs lots of sex....lots. Noah takes care of her "itch," but when she gets in trouble with her newbie lack of knowledge and makes a deal with Uriel, an angel - a deal to retrieve a long-ago forgotten halo, things start to go downhill. The vampire queen, Nitocris, wants the halo too and sends Zane out with Jackie to retrieve it. With her new pal and co-succubi, Remy, Jackie must search for a hidden halo and figure out which of her masters she can trust.
Gentlemen Prefer Succubi is a book I liked, although I didn't always like Jackie and this is really the only thing that bothered me throughout the book. It is hard to pinpoint exactly why, but maybe it is because we don't really get to know a lot about her. What has her past been like? There is no mention of friends and family, which is convenient when a mortal becomes immortal and undergoes a change of appearance. Isn't anyone out there wondering where she is? Now, her change is quite amusing. Her breasts become huge, and her dealing with that at the beginning had me chuckling. Her size fourteen becomes a six, and all of a sudden, guys are drooling all over the city. What we see of Jackie in the book is a formally nerdy girl who is now a sex kitten. She definitely has the potential to be a heroine I like - she has that silly vibe going and she makes me laugh. I just want to get to know her a little better before I call her my BFF.
Two men come into her life - Noah and Zane. Noah, the fallen angel, is her steady rock. He is there for all her needs, and I could take him or leave him. He plays the more gentlemen role and a little more boring in my opinion. I should like him, he is the knight in shining armor, and there is definitely more of him to come in future books so maybe my opinion will change. Then there is Zane, the bad boy vampire - he is under the queen's command, yet Jackie knows deep down there is an undercurrent of emotions he is too scared to share. He is the character you root for and he is the one that made the book for me at the end. He has dark hair and eyes and that sarcastic, nonchalant attitude that makes you want to slap him and then make dirty love to him for hours (or is that just me?).
Jackie is a succubus that doesn't like to use people for sex although her body demands it every couple days. With the nature of these characters, you get a very steamy book and I don't think a succubus would be disappointed reading the sex scenes Jill Myles wrote. They are very detailed and very naughty - can we say sex in a church, in the confessional? At some points it was kind of hard to take in the steamy sex scenes when the rest of the book is so light-hearted but by the end of the book they started to meld together better.
I honestly did not know how the ending would play out and nothing is wrapped up neat and tidy. Although decisions are made, Jackie's new life is no where near figured out.
Gentlemen Prefer Succubi is a fun start to a new series and I am so glad we only have to wait a few weeks for Succubi Like It Hot!
