Imagine one day you have a normal hectic life of a thirty something, and then the next day you are involved in an accident and wake up in Hell. Well this is what happens to Lilith Straight. Upon her arrival in Hell Lilith finds out she is bound by a past generations bargain with the devil. This bargain is that it makes all female descendants a succubus. They have to use their charm and inner demon to do tasks. . There is only one descendant at a time who has to become a succubus, so when Lilith's mother Carrie passes away the role is then passed on to Lilith. Lilith is taken to the office of Miss Spry, who is the evil antagonist. Miss Spry is very much like the office boss with a demonic kick.

This is a fun and light read, I also really liked the feel and tempo of this book. It's very much tongue in cheek and at times can be quite humorous. There is a bit of romance in the book but not too much to make it all mushy and gooey. Some really good characters, I really liked Lilith, Miss Spry and Mr Clarke, they really were good. I hope I see more of them in book two.

The main character Lilith is very likeable. There are many things I could relate to her with. Her life is very complex and she is certainly a walking disaster. But nevertheless you can really sympathise with the poor lady, at times most normal people would have been ripping their hair out. You can see that she really adores her daughter Grace. It's not easy working on behalf of the devil and keeping a family going.

The main reason I didn't give this book a 5 star rating was the fact that I could put it down, I know when a book is 5 star as I can't eat or sleep for wanting to read it. This was missing for me. All the correct components were there, but it just missed out on a top rating.

Would I read more books by this author, yes I would! Her writing style is very relaxed and easy going.

When I started the book, I though uh-oh this is sounding like a Queen Betsy rip off - right from the first page Lilith mentions the day she died...and she was hit by a car. But Lilith doesn't rise from the dead, instead she must fulfil her family's destiny and become a succubus, in the employ of the devil... or Miss Spry as the case may be. Don't worry, it's not all about sex either, true to her name, Lilith is a temptress but must use her seductive skills to sway the decisions of humans and gain extra souls for the cause.

It's an easy read although I wouldn't put it in the paranormal romance sub-genre. It's not at all romantic or sexy if that's what you're after. Yes, there may be a hot demon in Lilith's life but it doesn't seem to go anywhere. Lilith is much more concerned about looking after her daughter and niece, paying the bills and not doing anything too evil.

And maybe that's my problem with Lilith as a character. All her guilt. She doesn't really fight against her job but she goes on a bit too much about how awful everything she has to do is. At times it's really quite funny but it is a little overdone for me and the plot loses its way.

I read a final copy of this book and there were a few sentences that didn't read quite right. These should be picked up by a good professional proofreader. However the ebook is certainly a bargain if you like light, paranormal reads.

Definition of Succubus, from Wikipaedia -
"In folklore traced back to medieval legend, a succubus is a female demon or supernatural entity that appears in dreams, who takes the form of a human woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. The male counterpart is the incubus.
In modern fictional representations, a succubus may or may not appear in dreams and is often depicted as a highly attractive seductress or enchantress; whereas, in the past, succubi were generally depicted as frightening and demonic."

Lilith Straight's life has changed, and not for the better. But it's about to get much worse as she dies after being hit by a car. But that is not the end of Lilith's story. Far from it, her death is actually the beginning.

Taken to Hell she meets Miss Spry who tells her of a family contract which she, Lilith, now has to continue to fulfill or pay the consequences. Lilith is told she has to take over the family role of a succubus, and she has to do so until the day she dies, again! The contract dates back many generations when her ancestor was accused of being a witch and sentenced to death. To save herself she made a deal with the devil, promising that all future female descendants would become succubi.

However Lilith does not have a straight forward life. She is recently divorced, living in a much smaller place than she is used to. She has not only taken in her sister but also her niece, and has a young daughter of her own. Life is not easy. Throw in that if called by Miss Spry she must drop everything immediately to do her bidding, and you get an idea of how hectic her life has become.

Lilith rebels constantly, and the ensuing dramas are sometimes sad, sometimes funny.

Imagine having the perfect life, the perfect family, not worrying about if there is enough money in the bank, buying that designer handbag or in my case not worrying about buying a shed load of books.

Now imagine having that ripped away from you, being by yourself with your kids and having to live day to day. Well this is what has happened to Lilith Straight, she had it all and lost it but she still has her daughter and is also looking after her niece plus somewhere along the line her crazy stepsister has moved in.

But hey she has her health......well she had till the day she gets knocked over and killed by a car.

But she doesn't reach the pearly gates, she ends up behind bars somewhere down below and is introduced to Miss Spry who has a family story to tell her.

She learns that she is a Succubus and not only that, she comes from a long, long line of them. The icing on the cake is she can have her life back but only if she becomes a Succubus, one that will be forever on call for the people down below in Hell or she can die.

She doesn't like it but there really is only one choice for her.

Of course the path to accepting that your body is now hosting a demon and that your mother has been hiding the fact she is a succubus from you does take a bit of getting used to for Lilith but before she gets a chance to speak to her, the worst happens, her mother passes away.

Lilith does not even get to organise her mothers funeral in peace, her new "skills" want to come to the surface and so begins Lilith's attempt to rebel against what she is.
