{Review} Succubus Lost (From the Files of the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency, #2) by Tiffany Allee

Succubus Lost (From the Files of the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency, #2)
by Tiffany Allee
Publisher: Entangled Publishing 
Released: May 24th 2012
Genre: Fiction- Adult: Paranormal Romantic Suspense
How I got it: Sent a ARC by the author

Someone is kidnapping and incinerating otherworlders beyond recognition, and detective Marisol Whitman, a succubus, races to find the murderer before he claims another victim. But her pursuit is derailed when her responsible younger sister vanishes. Marisol suspects foul play and enlists support from an unlikely source: an agent from the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency, Valerio Costa.
When the trail pointing to everyone from vampires to witches dries up, Agent Costa admits to knowing more than he’s shared. Marisol’s sister’s kidnapper harnesses more magic than she can imagine—and they’re running out of time. To find her sister before her powers are drained and twisted beyond recognition, Marisol must connect the dots between cases and put her trust in Costa, a salamander who may burn her before she can solve either case.

Review:First thing I have to say is that is a gorgeous cover. There's just something about it I love, and I didn't even see this cover until after I read the book.
Ok that said this was a great book. Marisol is a succubus and detective who's sister is kidnapped, she'll stop at nothing to find her sister. She's partnered with Agent Costa who's a salamander, kind of a fire element type and she's also working on a case with a detective name Astrid.
I was pulled right into this book. It jumps right into a murder, actual they find a burned body. Marisol is working on this case when she discovers her sister is missing. When this happens she discovers that a lot of succubi have come up missing. As the book progressed I was pulled deeper into the case and found myself guess at who was behind the kidnappings. Following the clues was interesting, especially how everything ties together.
The chemistry between Costa and Marisol was subtle but there. I actually liked that is wasn't in your face I want you between these two. The attraction is shown in small ways that build up over the course of the case. Being a succubus Marisol tries to avoid situations where she'll be tempted to use her powers. Also she seems to feel she needs to be more professional than others because of what she is as well. Which has her coming off as a little stuck up, or with an attitude. She's snarky and given the situation a bit emotional, of course this is to be expected. As a character I found her believable and really interesting.
I enjoyed the world building and writing style Ms Allee has. I'd be interested to see what else this series has in store for us.
