Review: Wired in Sin by Lea Barrymire

Victoria is a business owner, a friend and a succubus, the latter being something she despises with her whole heart. As she works to free others like her from the daily need to feed from sexual partners, she stumbles across her mate. Now she’s fighting destiny and the call of his lust, refusing to sate her need on the one male made for her.

Dominick is a technowizard used to living his life his way. When he arrives at a business meeting and senses his mate, he’s intrigued. When she slams walls up around herself and refuses to even look at him, he goes on the prowl. He uses her sex phone business to get her attention, but can he keep her on the line long enough to capture her heart?

Victoria is a succubus, a sex demon that must feed on the emotional and sexual energy of humans to survive. Not born to the life, but turned years ago, her guilt and disgust with her demonic side have kept her isolated and alone: it is safer that way for others. Lea Barrymire has cleverly incorporated a very un-demonlike succubus and given her a heart and a palpable loneliness that is as endearing as it is understandable.

To combat her need to feed, and provide a service for other succubi and incubi that also prefer to remove the risk to others from their feeding frenzies, she created a phone-sex service that keeps her employees fed and paid, and the humans safe.

When she does a favor for a long-term employee and takes a client, she doesn’t realize the impact that Nick, a techno wizard will have on her: but his voice is addictive, and his realization of what she is, without fear or apparent concern is refreshing, if confusing.

What Victoria doesn’t realize is that Nick is her mate – and they are destined to be together, despite her concerns that she will not be able to control her demonic urges. What follows is a delicate dance and courtship, mixed in with some of the most erotically charged phone sex and some incredibly steamy scenes when the two finally meet.

Barrymire has created a story that has some clever twists and turns, a unique succubus at the heart of the story, and mixed in a wizard who is as sexy as he is determined to show his woman that she is worth every bit of emotion he shares with her.

I received an eBook copy from the publisher for purpose of honest review for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

About Lea Barrymire

Lea lives in Western New York with her hubby, three children, and miscellaneous critters. Before the rugrats, she lived a life of adventure, following her husband all over Europe with the US military. She’s slept in a car outside Paris, drove six hours just to see tulips in the Netherlands, and knocked ash from her shoes at Pompeii. Now she spends her time in life’s adventures at soccer games, PTA meetings and school plays.

Lea has loved reading from a very young age, spending many sleepless nights devouring books. Science fiction and paranormal were her favorite genres to read as a teenager, and that love bled into her adult life. She started writing during a bout of insomnia, to fill time, and found it filled a creative void. Now she communes regularly with the characters in her head and tries not to laugh out loud when they say something funny.

When Lea isn’t reading, writing or corralling kids, she enjoys watching movies and sciencey shows, or just kicking back and listening to some music.

Warm puffs of breath tickled across her thigh and a shiver raced along her spine. She let her head fall back against the couch and marveled as the cool material counteracted the heat of her neck. Light strokes along her calf made her moan. She jumped when moist lips pressed just above her knee. The view of Nick’s dark head, still veiled in shadow, centered between her thighs, was one of the most erotic things she’d seen.

His lust flowed over her with a surge of power and she gasped at the taste of it. If his essence were wine it’d be rich and full, aged to perfection. It sated a need she hadn’t even realized she had. Shivers caused goose bumps to erupt on every inch of her skin as she drank in his energy. A moan left her lips and a gush of liquid heat flowed from her pussy. She wanted to lick his skin to see if the energy coated him like a sheen of sweat.

Warm hands spread her legs farther and a cool draft moved across her heated flesh. Her eyes flew open just in time to watch her dress melt away from her body, leaving her completely nude on the couch. She reached for Nick, needing to feel some connection to the male who was filling ever corner of her need. If she’d been feeding from him in her true form she would have unfurled her wings and wrapped them around his body, pulling him in to her. Without her wings she could only cling with tingling fingers to his shoulders, mewling her need.

    Thanks for sharing your review and the giveaway. Sounds like a really good book and I am looking forward to reading it. evamillien at gmail dot com

    Hot excerpt, the book looks good. I think a succubus sounds more interesting to be.

    For what ever reason my blog is hating Michelle and will not allow her to post her comment. So I’m posting it for her.

    Here it is:

    I think I’d rather be a techno-wizard. I wouldn’t have to worry about having iron control to keep from killing my lovers and I would have a much greater range of powers. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the comments, ladies. Today I’m feeling the need to be a succubus, but I agree with Michelle… most of the time I’d be like a black widow or praying mantis. Suck ’em dry and leave the carcass. LOL
