*** This review is SPOILER-FREE! Read on with confidence! ***


This novella was just plain funny! Very witty, it’ll have you laughing out loud on occasion. The world created is fun and interesting, though I wish we got a little more insight into it, such as why does the lightning come along with sex for a succubus or incubus. The chemistry between the main characters is sizzling. Almost literally, it’s like barely harnessed power.

The moment they realize who their date is was laughable and awkwardly fun. They proceed on their date, and there’s lot of foreplay, but I feel like the rest of the night was a little rushed. That being said it had a very sweet ending. I look forward to more from this author!

Memorable Quotes:

Always gotta look on the bright side.

A celibate succubus just wasn’t natural, they insisted time and time again. Not only that, but she was doing herself real physical and psychic damage, they insisted. Without a constant influx of the buzzing electrolytes transferred during orgasm, she would waste away, they noted, pointing to her size-zero figure, the dull, ashy blonde hair she pinned severely to her nape, and her fair and delicate – okay, so maybe she was a little too, er, translucent – complexion. At least she didn’t sparkle in the sun.

Sister knows best…apparently.

Lily swept her hand toward the stunning view of the city beyond. “But the floor-to-ceiling windows make that a non-starter.”

“Lil’s whiter than Edward Cullen and you’re talking about where her diploma should go? It’s like the blind leading the sexless.” Zena uncoiled her slinky frame from the sofa and prowled the room like a huntress seeking prey. “Fuck this. She needs a man. A mortal man.”

I think she’s got a point there Romeo.

“Hadn’t you better get to it, then?” She grinned up at him.

“What, you’re just going to lie there and think of England?”

“Hell, no. But since I’m the one wearing the blindfold, I think this one’s on you.”

Final Thoughts:

Hot, fun, and sweet, Lightning is sure to get your blood pumping and laugh rolling with its bold characters. Recommended!
