The Torch (The Succubus Studies) by L.L. Frost is the 6th part of a reverse harem serial about a Succubus named Adie who doesn’t want to have sex to feed herself but instead wants to open a bakery to fulfill her passion as well as use it as a way to skim from humans. Unfortunately that requires money something she does not have. Which means she needs to get a loan from a bank. While attempting to get her loan she runs into three demons, one at a coffee shop, one a night club, and then the President of the bank. All three together offer her a deal that she cannot refuse.
Each part of the serial is only about 40 pages long, which normally drives me crazy. Ok, let’s be honest it’s driving me nuts right now because I am a very impatient person and I would normally only start a series or serial when it is complete. Which when I read the first five I had thought it was finished with an ending but what can I say I was completely wrong. So now I have to wait for each part to come out every month. I must say it is definitely worth it because, it leaves you not just wanting more but needing more. Your reading about this succubus who has these three demons who want her and need her at the same time and yet instead of doing like most authors would and just having Adie jump in and start screwing their brains out she’s stretching it out. She’s making you say while your reading come on Adie kiss him, or I need more I want them together already.
I think that might be why I like author L.L. Frost and her serial so much because it is a slow burn reverse harem romance. While I happen to love sex scenes in my adult novels sometimes they can be too much. Some authors have so much sex it kind of feels redundant and the romance falls flat for me, because why would I think that the couple loves each other when all they did was sleep together and never talk.
I give The Torch and the rest of the serial all 5 stars and I can’t wait for L.L. Frost to publish the rest of this serial.
