Title: Succubus-In-Waiting (The Veil #2)
Author: Danica Avet
Publisher: Siren Publishing
My Rating: 5 Stars
It isn’t easy holding onto your virginity in a succubus Pleasure House, but Piper Foxgrove has managed for decades. As a rare succubus-weretiger Halfling, Piper dreams of true love-to the consternation of her mother. Forced to work with a bad-tempered, good-looking werewolf looking for his nephew, Piper’s determined to ignore his sexiness. Unfortunately, her succubus half decides he’s the key to unlocking her powers while her recently awakened weretiger half thinks he’s perfect mate material. Connor Griffin’s brother died because of “soul suckering” succubi, so he doesn’t trust them. But Connor needs to find his nephew-the Veil can be dangerous-and worry makes him take drastic measures, like working with a succubus. But something about Piper calls to his wolf and has him doing things he never thought he’d do, like work with a succubus, lust after a succubus, and fall in love with a sassy, sexy succubus with tiger-striped hair.
Avet has once again written a story with fantastic characters, a great plot, steamy romance, and her own brand of humor. The second book in the series, Succubus in Waiting could easily be read as a stand-alone. I was pleased to see some of my favorite characters from the first book, but this story focuses on new characters, Piper and Connor.
The plot is intriguing and flows easily but the intense relationship between these two is the highlight. Piper has beauty, sass, strength, humor and a relatable vulnerability and is complemented well by the sexy, intelligent, and protective alpha-male. The writing of these dual-natured supernatural beings is clever and creative. By giving a personality to their supernatural sides, the author creates very interesting and three-dimensional characters. Their relationship is a slow burn, filled with delicious sexual tension, and a climax not to be missed.
