A review of UnWrapped by Danielle Gavan

Time to share a book I found with an Incubus within its pages… Now they are but one part of the overall story that the author has written, but they are… interesting…

A quick, hot read, but it did leave me wanting more than we see in the work…

UnWrapped by Danielle Gavan

Follow the du Tout siblings Beau, Rien, Aimé and Pascale as they discover just how fun getting older can be for a Satyr, Incubus, Dhampire and Fae.

Beau’s gift allows him to not only have his cake, but eat it too.

Rien finds himself given as a birthday gift to none other than Lilith’s daughter and Aimé agrees to show a shy Dhampire how much she’s missing out on by denying herself the pleasures of a male between her thighs.

The three brothers band together to give their sister an unforgettable birthday at the hands of Beau’s college friend, Oliver Hutchinson.

Birthday bumps were never so naughty as the du Tout family make them.

The work is a series of short flashes that tell the story of the du Tout brothers and the women that come into their lives. In the story about Beau, a pair of half succubi appear as minor characters in the story for a sex scene. The connection between the succubi is an interesting one and does make the scene a lot hotter than I expected it to be when it began.

The other story that interested me, about Rien, the incubus of the family, had him being asked by Lilith to go to her Daughter, Samanya, and make her half millennium birthday one she would never forget. The story was full of teasing and anticipation that cumulated in a deliciously naughty scene between Rien and Samanya.

What I found interesting was that there was some tension between Lilith and Rien that wasn’t really explained and I would have loved to know more about that.

The works did connect together by the end of the story, which was nice to see as some anthologies like this never connect the dots together which is unsatisfying. So overall it was a good read, but the incubus and succubi are the focus for me of course…

And so I am giving this story three pitchforks out of five.

The succubi are not quite “real” enough for me, Rien made up for that, but there could have been so much more about him we could have learned really I think…

As always, the individual stories were too short for my liking and I would have loved to know more about the characters and their world…

Perhaps next time I will…

    At so few pages, I get the impression that the author rushed through this just a bit. There is so much that can be discovered by lingering properly with characters through pages and pages . . . ah, well . . .

    I suppose that’s the best explanation my heart…
