What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Her lips have the power to boost. Her love can grant power unparalleled. In an ongoing conflict against ravishingly beautiful beings from another dimension, Aurora Haddix’s abilities allow her to turn the tide of the battle.
Born a Natch, one of the population naturally endowed with superhuman powers at birth, Aurora tries to make the right choice. Her handsome, overprotective best friend and her tortured, grizzled mentor want her to use her powers for good. Kiss a Natch and they become more powerful for a few minutes. Allow one inside her and their powers are intensified for a full day. She wants to help, but she can’t get their roguish, virile former comrade out of her mind—and he wants her to join his underground band of Renegades. Then there’s the dark elf king, the leader of the otherworldly Nelians determined to infiltrate Earth—Aurora’s number one target and the most devastatingly gorgeous man she’s ever seen.
Aurora’s body makes her the most sought-after Natch in a war that might end on her say-so. Only with the way her inner passion ignites at each touch, she’s not so sure of her true reasons for pursuing the four alluring men who seek to possess her.
Thoughts on Succubus Lips
While many RH books out there in the market today are fleshed out into a lengthy series, this one bends the genre just enough to allow the romance and action to stay in just one book. This makes it a bit fast, yet somehow it works – though a full connection with the characters isn’t quite made. Still, over all, it’s decent; a bit fantasy, a touch PNR while still being in the guise of an X-Men like background. Interesting.
The world will go on with another book with different characters, yet for this grouping, their HEA is here and done.
- Unique story.
- World building.
- FMC is appealing.
- A bit X-Men, a bit LOTR.
- Lack of Emotional build up.
- Conclusion feels rushed or slapped together, though there was little else that could be done.
First Person, Single POV

Fast, fun and explicitly hot, this RH ride introduces a new world with interesting characters and a dynamic most fans are sure to love. Free on KU.
