[Pdf/E–book] (Soul Stripper Soul Stripper #1)
I received this ARC from Kensington Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review35 Stars Let me start by saying that I just love the cover Honestly that is why I reuested the book because of the cover well and after reading the description of the book I was I finished this book with every intention of ranting about it shortly after I realized there was no way I would ever be able to sympathize with Monica Then I watched Missrepresentation and watching that documentary not only allowed me to put into words what exactly I didn t like this book but how I could say it without being demeaning Which is exactly what I needed because Katana Collins has the potential to be a terrific erotica author There s nothing wrong with her skills The problem with this book is that unfortunately she s a product of the media surrounding her aren t we all and it influenced her book in ways that made me feel largely uncomfortableMonica is a succubus I admit my problem with a lot of erotic novels is the woman is always described as the object of desire for every man she comes across Note this is just my experience with the ones I ve read If any one has some ood recommendations please send them my way I thought I would be able to handle it if she was a succubus because by her very nature to survive she has to be desirable Except she lost her powers and she was still wanted by every man in the novel In fact even though it was her life in danger she spent most of the time letting the men handle things while she had sex with a number of them Again not really a problem but I would have liked an erotic novel where it was actually about what the woman wanted but what we ended up with was an erotic fantasy that was still very much about male desire Her boss emotionally manipulated her into having sex with him even though after the foreplay she changed her mind because they were both in relationships There was even a masturbation porn scene where she was literally the center of attention for every man in the room Including the angel If I had thought for one moment that the men in her life viewed her as something than a iant blow up doll this by itself would not have bothered meBut women as solely an object of desire for men is not the only women negative image that this book perpetuated Once she starts to lose her powers there s a very real threat that she might be killed And by killed I mean that her soul itself would be annihilated and she would cease to exist Yet she is worried initially if eating like a human being is oing to cause her to When Da Silva Breaks the Rules (Blood Brothers, gain weight She is concerned with her looks than the fact that she might die In fact she bursts her pants at the seams shortly after losing her powers and she immediately attributes it to the fact that she was eating Not that fact that she doesn t actually wear clothes as a succubus so they were probably just sitting around in her closet The insidious message is that if you eat like a human being you mayain weight and become undesirable and regardless of it being unintentional that is absolutely the last thing women in our society need to hear todayOf course my biggest problem with the entire book is how entirely catty Monica is enforcing the message that women can t truly be friends because that other woman over there is a sexual threat She hates her boss s The Billionaires Runaway Bride girlfriend because she believes her boss deserves better aka her and demeans her by saying she thinks she works at a hooters like joint She s actually a detective The problem with this is she s using another woman s sexuality to demean her when Monica herself is a stripper at night This is just the start of it Monica spends the rest of the book insulting every woman she comes across sometimes ones she hasn t even met At one point she mentally threatens to shove her best friend s face in a coffeerinder because she s playfully flirting with her boss It s a wonder this woman has any friends at all with that type of behavior Later at a church function her former angel mentor is introduced to a young Christian woman who is wearing pantyhose under her skirt and she s a bitch She didn t even talk to this woman but because she s talking to one of her men she s a bitch Oh and the curvy one is the evil one Yup We shouldn t be perpetuating this myth that when women are together they have to instantly view each other as a threat Now if Monica had learned some valuable lesson about the magic of friendship that would ha. It's called Sin City for a reason Nowhere else are the temptations so Fifty Ways To Be Your Lover great the sex soood and the demons so badBy day Monica is a barista in a local café It doesn't pay a lot but it puts her up close and persona.

RsThe book was actually very cool I don t know why it took me so long to read it Maybe because it took me a while to understand what was Caught on Camera with the CEO going on But the story is not by any means slow Maybe just a little complicated to understand at firstThe heroine of this story is a badass succumbi she made a deal with the devil to supply him with uncorrupted soles She does that true sexual act What I liked about this book was the fact that sex scenes were minimalistic notraphic and wasn t the main focus of the story She enjoys the act in itself but doesn t like the fact that she takes their soles and shortens their lives So she found a loophole There was a Wyoming Strong (Wyoming Men, guy that she fell in love with a long time ago who she wasn t able to save There is a lot ofuilt on her part Suddenly one day he shows up It was 60 years ago since the last time she saw him but he hasn t changed a bit and that raised a lot of uestions Their relationship is complicated because he is angry that she wasn t there when she needed to be It s not an instant love story but there are romantic feelings involvedThen we have a parallel running story about a mysterious creature killing succumbi She is the next target She needs to Arabian Nights get herhim before sheheets herWe have few pretty cool secondary characters like her demon and angel friends There is a lot of animosity between those two It was really very fun to read about them hating on each other The writing is Enchanting Baby (The Birth Place good so is the editing no unnecessary descriptions orrammar errors that I noticed It had couple of twists and a cliffhanger which were very nicely done Overall it was just a very cool read The pricing is ridiculous if you ask me I didn t take away any starts because of it but to pay 10 to 12 bucks for an ebook is a little too much in my opinion I would have jumped on the next book right away because it ended with a cliffhanger if it wasn t for the price I don t know if it s because I m from outside the US or it s because the publisher is too Wild Nights with Her Wicked Boss greedy Soul Stripper is not the book I thought it wasoing to be I seriously could not put this book down once I started Monica is a succubus and she works as a stripper because she needs to absorb the sexual energy of men in order to stay alive and retain her succubus powers Problem is each time she absorbs this energy she steals a piece of that person s soul and shortens their life span Monica doesn t like this for Midsummer Night (Lady Julia Grey, good reasons she used to be an angel So basically she is a succubus with a conscience She tries hard to take souls that are already lost to help ease the burden that she is taking lives but it is still a difficult burden for her to bear Someone is killing her fellow succubi and apparently Monica is next on the list and the story that builds around the mystery of these murders and who is stalking Monica as their next victim really keeps youuessing until the very end This story is full of really Always You great and well written characters and the ending really threw me for a loop I really wasn t expecting that ending at all Can t wait toet my hands on book two I am definitely a fan Due to the nature of the succubus there are a large number of erotic scenes but this book is so much than erotica It is a very well written paranormal murder mystery that will keep you turning the pages Highly recommend for all paranormal romanceerotica fans ARC provided by netgalley For reviews please visit my blog 35 starsARC received from Kensington Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I like a sprinkling of fantasy amongst the books I usually read and this seemed the ideal candidateMonica is a succubus a Wild at Heart (Sons of Chance, golden one at that She is a fallen angel now dedicated to claimingood souls through the act of sex This not only keeps her on the right side of hell but allows her sustenance where she displays powers including shifting shining Unfortunately for her she has constant battles about where she draws her sustenance from Monica works as a barista by day alongside the lovely Drew She has a soft spot for him but will not take that any further due to the drain any physical contact would have on him By night Monica is a stripper and this is where she sources a lot of her prey fromThe story sees her life being put in danger so her army of friends and associates come out to assist archangels demons and elementals But are they all keeping her best interests at heartI liked this story finding it very humorous and fast pacedAn enjoyable easy read.

I love coffeeAs an author and a story teller it is the lifeblood to which my ideas take flight And I believe in giving credit where credit is due Occasionally someone ie – my husband will try to secretly switch out my beloved regular coffee for decaf I always know the difference ALWAYS I’m looking at you SEANI am incapable of achieving the perfect ponytail I’m dyslexic I can never we
