About the book
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?

“A little higher and more to the left.”
Lily Night narrowed her eyes as the building maintenance man shifted her framed diploma on the freshly-painted wall opposite her desk. She tried not to ogle the firm ass encased in a pair of tight jeans or the way the man’s shoulder muscles rippled beneath his T-shirt.
Maybe if I pop an Altoid, I’ll have an excuse to wipe away the drool.
She refrained from jumping the handsome worker dude’s bones. The last time she’d dallied with a human, the encounter had not gone well. Vivid images of that long ago prom night bombarded her. Campbell Jones had been a young, strapping, hunk-and-a-half football player and they’d started their date full of hope and expectation and lust. When he’d adjusted the fragrant gardenia corsage on her wrist, she’d inhaled his crisp, citrus scent and thought she might swoon at the sight of him in his tux. The black material stretched across broad shoulders that mirrored the promise of the bruising man he’d be in his prime. But she’d all but sucked him dry as flashes of lightning crackled over their heads. By the time dawn painted the sky, she’d turned him into a mere shadow of his former self. Literally.
And briefly knocked out cell phone service in the lower Hudson Valley, as well.
She’d sworn off humans ever since. Instead, she pulled all-nighter after all-nighter to evade the dreams in which men called to her—and to avoid the university dating scene that inevitably led to frequent and addicting sex.
Mortals. Bleh.  

My thoughts:
I love that excerpt!
Lightning by Taryn Kincaid is filled with spicy fun!  If you are looking for a quick read full of quick dialogue, hot moments, and a guy that says all the right things then look no further ladies! 

Having had an unforgettable experience in more ways than one with a human, Lily has sworn off all men.  This wouldn't necessarily be a problem if she herself was a human but Lily is far from that.  Lily is a succubus and she needs well a good romp in the hay to survive.  When her sisters have enough of her withering away they sign her up at a dating agency called 1NightStand.  Lily agrees knowing that she needs this, but when her past catches up to her all bets are off.

From the first page I was glued to this story.  It has some of the best spicy moments I have ever read and let me tell you it was hilarious!  Lily and her sisters are a hoot, a little crass but a hoot nonetheless!  I would love to see a full novel developed around them.  This story though was a lot of fun.  I loved the tension between Lily and Campbell and it was great seeing them reconnect.  Campbell was very much the hawtiee he is described to be and I loved every minute they were together.  This is another case where the book was too short.  I read it and I was like NOOO I want MORE!  So this is my first Kincaid book, but it is definitely not my last.  The author can definitely tell a steamy story and I am ready for more!
