Georgina has settled in to a sorta satisfied relationship with Seth, her very favorite author. The underlying theme is one of attempting satisfaction without actually touching so as to preserve as much of Seth’s life as possible.
To distract us from the sexual frustrations, we have Bastien appearing. Desperately in need of a triumph to soothe his furious master in Detroit, Bastien, an incubus, must seduce Dana, the leader of a anti-everything league in Seattle. Dana is homophobic, censorious, judgmental, and self-righteous with a major secret to hide.
Bastien has impulse control problems which is what led to his Detroit disaster and he’s on the same course here in Seattle…with Georgina. To be fair, he and Georgina have a long, long history together—they’ve partnered up to ply their sensual arts many a time in the past and somewhere in that selfish hide of his, I think he’s a tiny bit concerned.
The other distraction is a new drug making the rounds. Someone is supplying Doug and his band and their fame is skyrocketing. Doug has gone overboard in every direction and it’s wreaking havoc…everywhere.
Of the two books I’ve read, the series lacks weight but I am enjoying it as a flip sort-of read. I do like Georgina’s concern for not hurting Seth and Seth has such a wholesome approach to the issue. But I really like Seth’s family. They are so welcoming and I think they are providing the most difficult spin emotions-wise for Georgina.
