Every succubus has to deal with the “Itch” – the curse of pleasure that she has to feed every 48 hours to survive. At least, that’s how often it’s supposed to work. Problem is, Jackie needs to have sex more often. Far more often. And when her Itch increases from 48 hours to 36 to 24 in a matter of days and she accidentally steals the thoughts out of people just by touching them, she knows something is out of control. Her best friend and fellow succubus Remy suggests a road trip through the South. Their destination? New Orleans, home of Delilah, the oldest Suck in the States. Delilah’s seen (and done) it all, so surely she will know the answer to Jackie’s escalating Itch and be able to help her before time runs out and she dies of sexual starvation.
But this isn’t your normal road-trip, and the girls have barely crossed state lines when Jackie’s date bails out on her and leaves her in the lurch with nothing but a scummy porn-god to help her out. Jackie things things couldn’t possibly get any worse…until people start dying.

Jackie thought she was getting her life back on track by taking a job with the New City University archaeological team. She has recently been turned into a succubus, which means she has to have sex every couple of days to sate the "itch" that arises. She turns to her two masters, fallen angel Noah and vampire Zane who more than willingly scratch the itch for her. However, these days, Jackie is noticing the need to have sex is increasing, to almost every day. One would think having sex with two beautiful and very sexy men wouldn't be that much of a hardship, but Jackie soon discovers her need for more sex is going to have deadly consequences. It is hard to kill an immortal such as a succubus, but being cursed, is a sure, although slow way. Another side effect of the curse is wiping the brains of any mortal she touches. She puts them into a comatose state, and when she uses her succubus powers to reach into them to wake them up, she can't find the person.
The only other succubus Jackie knows, is porn star Remy Summore (ram-me-some-more....HA) who is fast becoming a good, albeit unique friend. Remy has no idea who cursed Jackie nor how, but she has an idea how to find out. Remy is also dealing with her own demon possession, Joachim, from the first book, and Joachim often wants to come out and "play," which soon causes many problems for Jackie. Remy suggests a trip to New Orleans to meet up with a very old Succubus, who is also a voodoo priestess. Jackie wants to get there as fast as she can, but Remy has a porn movie to promote and begs Jackie to go on a road trip. Reluctantly Jackie agrees.
Jackie is hesitant to tell Noah or Zane about the curse, with their already rocky relationship. In fact, Noah is tired of sharing Jackie and wants her to make a decision. Jackie is not ready to commit to one person, when Noah is not available during the night and vice versa for Zane. She needs them both, especially now that her sexual needs are greater. Noah is done with sharing and tells Jackie he needs space. Devastated, and not wanting to have sex with strangers on her road trip, she convinces Zane to come with her.
Not far into the trip, Zane discovers Jackie is cursed and abruptly leaves. Now Jackie is on her own, and very horny. Worse, she is being followed by a tall, dark stranger. Luc is willing to help Jackie make it to New Orleans, but Jackie doesn't know if she can trust this stranger or if she can be with someone other than Zane and Noah. When threats and bloody bodies start surrounding Jackie, she hopes Zane or Noah will come to the rescue and find a cure for her curse, before it is too late.
Succubi Like it Hot is a really fun book. I enjoyed it so much!! While I liked the first book in the series, Gentlemen Prefer Succubi, I think this is the book where Jill Myles really hits her stride. While I found Jackie a little over the top and silly in the first book, in Succubi Like it Hot, she really starts coming to terms with her out of control life, yet she still will make you giggle throughout. She really is at the mercy of men to feed her sex needs, or she will eventually die. It is almost like she lost a little bit of the cocky, sarcastic attitude and the realization of her new life starts to sink in. Plus, with the curse that is slowly killing her, her immortality is in question, and she becomes desperate to find a cure. At one point in the book, she says she has to start doing things for herself. She can't care if Zane or Noah or an innocent gets hurt, which is something always on her mind. She gains some independence with the realization that she has to make decisions to save her own life.
While Remy has no problem having sex with anything that moves, Jackie just can't have sex with strangers. She trusts (to a certain degree) Zane and Noah. That trust is really tested when Zane takes off at the beginning of their road trip. While I was all for Team Zane (yes I must declare teams) in Gentlemen Prefer Succubi, Succubi Like It Hot gives you lots of time to come to love Noah, and I must say, I fell hard for him. Don't get me wrong, he has his secrets too - and Jackie knows it. But he truly loves Jackie and really tries to prove that in this book. Noah isn't perfect though. Jackie has a hard time trusting Zane because he takes off and keeps many secrets. Yet at the same time, Noah spouts off commands to Jackie and because he is her master, she has no choice but to follow. While both men declare they only have their best intentions towards Jackie, they both follow through on actions that puts doubts in Jackie's mind.
There are a few instances where Jackie overlooks details that really stood out. Threats written on mirrors, certain people turn up very, very dead, people stalking her and she just kind of brushes it off at first, without much concern. I feel like she should have been a little more in tune with the warning signs around her. I also sometimes question the absolute love and devotion Noah and Zane give to Jackie, for not knowing her very long. However, these books run over the span of weeks, and as the reader you don't see every interaction with them, so I suppose there has been a solid basis for a relationship.
The end of the book is going to give you the itch until the third book comes out! I even had a little sniffle. This book is still full of plenty of humor and lots of hot sexin' by the boys. One of my favorite scenes is with Noah in the shower. I have to agree with Jackie when she says it is "the best shower I'd ever had."
Succubi Like It Hot is steamy, full of laughs and just an all around entertaining book. The Succubus Diaries series has made it onto my favorites list.
