Review ~ Lightning by Taryn Kincaid

Title: Lightning
Author: Taryn Kincaid
Length: 41 pages
Released: October 18th 2012 by Decadent Publishing

In mystic Sleepy Hollow, succubus Lily Night put her prom date, Campbell Jones, into a coma after a night of wild, unbridled sex. She has steered clear of mortals ever since, afraid of damaging them or worse, not to mention the inconvenience of knocking out the power every time they have sex.

Successful architect Campbell Jones has lived with strange powers and a sexy secret since that prom night. He’s buried himself in work to forget the woman who’d dumped him at the ER then vanished from his life without a trace.

Neither Lily nor Campbell have forgotten that night or the love they’d shared. Will a 1Night Stand help them bury their past?

Warning: If you haven't read a 1NS book before, you might want to check out the Official 1 Night Stand series site to learn more about it. 

My Thoughts:

Loved it.
Why, you may ask. 
Because it was a quick, fun and H-O-T read with a good plot.

The beginning was a lot of fun, because we met Lily's succubus crazy sisters and this trio was absolutely hilarious. Big sisters are trying to take care of little sis.
“Lil’s whiter than Edward Cullen and you’re talking about where her diploma should go? It’s like the blind leading the sexless.”
And we also get to meet Campbell's brother. They're a joke bomb together too.

“My spidey senses are tingling.”
“Sure it’s not your cock, you asshole?”

Yeah. crazy crew, I know!
So when Lily and Campbell "accidently" meet in a bar for the first time in ten years, there's no holding back. Those scenes are hot, steamy yet tasteful. But yes, you should be expecting a "R" scene for sure!
And they loooove to tease eachother. It's fun!

Lily's full name was something that I DID NOT expect, haha. I think it was a bit risky to put that in, 'cause it could have been a really bad cliché and I don't know what exactly saved it, but I loved it.

The thing that I love the most about these 1NS stories is that how the authors put the titles in the books. They're not just metaphorically refering to something, they are present in the books. And Lightning isn't an exception either. Although I don't really get what does a succubus have anything to do with this, 'cause usually the valkyrs are who do this orgasm-causing-lightning thing. I guess that is the only reason why I don't give this book 5 stars. I could have used a tiny explanation. But all together it was good.

Honestly, I'm sorry that this was a short story. In my opinion It could have been a great novel.
