Richelle Mead's Georgina Kincaid series is one of my favourites ever, but strangely I cannot get into either of her other series. Weird, huh? I got this antho because I wanted to know all I could about Georgina and Seth's relationship, and whilst I am glad that I read it, it didn't really add much to the series, and IMO, actually spoilt their relationship by Georgina morphing into another woman that Seth was becoming friendly with, to see if he could be tempted into having sex with her, despite Georgina already repeatedly telling Seth that he could sleep with someone. After all, their relationship is meant to be abot true love, and not sex. Yes, it was clear that Seth was becoming attracted to the waitress he was seeing day after day, as they had things in common, but Georgina had unwillingly, then deliberately left him to his own devices. I don't think he would have taken the first steps at all, or that he would have easily responded to any advances the waitress made, but when Georgina deliberately puts temptation in his face by pretending to be Beth and stripping for him whilst they are watching a DVD (whilst Georgina is supposedly working) and he succumbs for a bit then backs off, I think that neither of them came out a winner. Yes, it was something that I kind of expected Georgina to do maybe in one of the full-length novels, but not in a separate novella, seemingly written just for this, so for me, it detracted from the series, not added to it, and in fact, I think it might have been a contributory factor to their breakup.
The Jackie Kessler tale, whilst I persevered and read it, added nothing whatsoever to the series. I picked up her first book when there was nothing else that I fancied at my local library, then I got into it and decided to track down the next in the series, which is currently awaiting me at the library, but I read the third in the series before reading this novella, and neither add to the series. Yes, we have 2 known quantities - Jezebel is an ex-demon so will always be unusual, and Paul though a hunk, is a bog-standard human male, so there's nothing too exciting about him, and yes, we know that trust will always be an issue, as she does not willingly confide in anyone, but they have to live with the things they can't change about each other, or go their separate ways. After all, he knows about her background and loves and accepts her unstintingly, not wanting to change anything about her. I am about to pick up the next book in the series, and will post a review shortly, but for me, this was a non-relevant addition.
I am sorry to say that contrary to the male reviewer, I could not get into either the Hannah Howell or Lynsay Sands tales, so cannot comment on them. Therefore, this review is based on the above 2 tales, for which the book was a 2.5* for me.
