When her co-worker catches Liv pining over their boss, Liv admits to being in a bit of a dry spell. It was hard for her to find men—and when she did, none of them seemed to measure up. Were her standards too high? Was her infatuation with her boss in the way? Whatever the case, Liv was at a loss for love.
Her co-worker proposes a daring, seemingly-absurd solution: why not summon a sex demon?
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on December 4, 2015
Liv is infatuated with her boss, but can’t do anything about it. Given the option to summon an Incubus to help her deal with things, Live does so. The Incubus takes the form of her boss, she has a night of amazing sex and then discovers that not only are Incubi real, but Succubi are as well. And there’s another secret she didn’t expect that changes her world.
As the beginning to a series, this work sets up a really good premise with a group of characters that fit together well, have their own personalities, needs and wants. It isn’t a simple hot flash, there’s a good deal of world building, of setting up the rules, and making things work together well. Liv, the main character, is very strong in her personality and as she tells the story of what happens around her, it seems real, well explained, and no detail is left out.
These are all good things because it sets up a solid story to which the erotica when it comes into the work, plays off of. The erotica isn’t a short hot flash either, there is build up, passions, moments that Liv and the Incubus she summons pass through. There’s a bit of D/s relationship that pops up very slightly, but it doesn’t overwhelm the feel of what happens to Liv and I liked that a lot.
The incubus himself isn’t named in this work, that comes in the second, but he isn’t stereotypically evil or nasty by any means. It’s made clear that both Succubi and Incubi live from the sexual energy of those they are with and in that comes a hotter story because it is the passions that move the story along towards an ending that works really well. We don’t see his true form either, he only appears as a “perfect” version of Liv’s boss, but it’s clear from the little descriptive hints that there is more to him.
The erotica doesn’t overpower the story, really it merges nicely into the narrative. The mix of story and heat in the latter half of the work I thought worked really well. It wasn’t simply a moment of sex and then the scene was over. There was development in the story, in the characters and as well the way things unfolded felt right for the setting and Liv herself.
The only thing that bothered me was that it was a bit short, there were some points at which further story could have been told or the Incubus could have explained things to Liv a bit more. There was a couple of points where I felt like there was a missing chapter between two moments, or at least a few pages, and that tripped me up a bit. But otherwise, this was an amazingly good story to set up a new series.
I’m giving this work four out of five pitchforks.
A really well told story, some lovely heat and a concept that really has a story to tell.
