This was my first read in this series and by this author. I absolutely loved this twisted, funny, witty and yes steamy tale. Definitely a must read! The author’s writing style is exactly what I look for. Katrina is a heroine you can absolutely root for and Gabriel is so cocky and witty that I fell in love with him. It always makes the story so much better when the characters are people you can love. I am going back and reading the rest of this series!! I would give more than 5 stars if I could!!!
One of my favorite genres is romantic comedy, toss in a little paranormal spice and you have everything you could want to keep you reading.
Set in my #1 wish to visit cities, New Orleans.. Katrina is a fasting succubus, barely managing to contain her devilish sexy self, this ragged control is put to the test when she meets Gabe, a broken hearted incubus, and together they set the pages on fire.
With great character development, some well described New Orleans locales, the author keeps the pages turning as our paranormal paramours find their way through the twists and turns of their adventure.
This book will draw you in and keep you entertained. The back and forth between Gabe and Katrina is great fun and will keep you turning the pages. I have not read the other books in this series and I was able to keep up with the pace and was not at all confused about the storyline or what was taking place. Highly recommend this book.
I really enjoy this series and it just keeps getting better and better. The story of Katrina and Gabe made me laugh and get all goofy because I do enjoy people finding love and happiness. I also like meeting old friends from other stories in the series. It helps to interlink the story, making it have more meaning. Swipe Right to Bite is a fun read. If you enjoy reading about demons finding love then this book is for you.
Who doesn’t love to read a story about boy meets girl but with a demon twist? This is the 6th book in the New Orleans Nocturnes series and it captures your attention right from the start. You find yourself rooting for the two main characters, opposites who completely attract. The story moves along quick and you find yourself wanting more. This is the first book in the series that I’ve read and I can’t wait to devour the others books and then hope upon hope that this series will continue.
Swipe Right to Bite is the sixth book in the New Orleans Nocturnes. I haven’t read any of this author’s previous books but I didn’t feel like I had missed anything by picking this series up at book six.
This is not my typical type of book, but I was looking for something a bit different. I am not a huge paranormal fan but when I saw it involved romance, I thought I would give it a try, and I am happy I did.
This book was hard to put down and there were many times I lost track of the time while I was reading it, especially when reading before bed!
I enjoyed the enemies-to-lovers storyline that had lots of humor with it.
Overall I will definitely be picking up other books by this author in this series and would highly recommend this book if you enjoy paranormal and romance.
Katrina lives in New Orleans and is the creator of Swipe Right To Bite, it is a dating app for the supernatural beings in the city and because she is a succubus, she knows all about sex and the enjoyment it can bring, even though she is fasting so that she can escape from Satan and win her freedom. Gabe is an incubus and has just moved to New Orleans for a fresh start and to see whether his work will be as well received within the supernatural community as it is in the human communities he has worked with before.
Katrina’s app is the most popular one of its kind, in fact it is the only one of its kind, however when she finds out about the new demon in town and how he is about to ruin her life, she is not impressed in the slightest and decides that she will pay this demon a visit and concocts a plan to do just that, however, it all backfires when he decides to try and turn the tables by gate-crashing an event of hers in return. This doesn’t just annoy Katrina, it starts to cause some problems for everyone else around her, especially when her demon shines through and complicates matters.
Katrina cannot abide this other sex demon and is determined to run him out of town, despite the fact that he is the one person she could break her fast with and not destroy in the process, but she tries to ignore that and plan his demise. Meanwhile, Gabe is determined to show Katrina what she is missing and makes up his mind how to do it, but will he be able to prove that sex demons can experience more than just sex, or will the heat they create in New Orleans scorch them both instead? This is a rip roaring paranormal romance with comedy and romance in spades, as well as a whole heap of trouble which will keep you hooked from start to finish.

Katrina is a succubus who doesn’t believe in love. Gabe is an incubus who disagrees. They clash when Gabe’s emotional intimacy counselling seminars impact Katrina’s hookup app business. There are plans made and secrets that must be kept. Katrina and Gabe have instant chemistry and it is fun to watch them dance around each other and try not to let the other person ‘win’. Their banter is amusing and the some of the situations had me laughing. This is a good book for when you need something light and witty.
This book is the 6th book of the “New Orleans Nocturnes” series. I have not read the other books in this series but the book was completely okay to read as a stand alone. This is my first book I have read by this author. Let me tell you, she is HILARIOUS! After reading this book I am definitely going to read more from this author.
This book is about a succubus, named Katrina, she is trying to be celibate so the devil will forget about her. One day an incubus by the name of Gabe shows up in town and everything is starting to fall apart for Katrina.
Katrina has a hook up app by the name of swipe right to bite, its her way of not relapsing in the sex department. Gabe is an inspirational talker about love and how to find it without the psychical aspect. Since he started these talks, Katrina’s clientele has been falling.
She wants to run him out of town and he wants to co-exist in the same town.
This book was so fun to read. It was witty, punny, sarcastic, romantic, sexy, all in all just fun. I will be looking into more books by this author.
This is not my typical sort of read, but I was looking for something fun and entertaining and this was definitely it! I haven’t read anything else in this series or by this author, but I didn’t feel like I was missing any information. I loved this book so much that I will be going back and reading the rest of the series for sure! This is the kind of book you stay up late to devour in one sitting when you intended to just read for a little bit before bed. That’s exactly what I ended up doing!

I loved this book! I couldn’t put it down. I think this is my favorite in the series so far that I have read. Once again, I laughed until I cried. If you haven’t read any of these books I highly recommend that you do. Although these are a series I personally don’t think you will need to read them to get an understanding of the stories. Every one of the stories set the tone for the book so you can pick it up and read. If you love laughing until you cry you need to read this story. I absolutely cannot wait for the next installment in this series.
Succubus and Incubus in New Orleans what could possibly happen. Katrina has been in New Orleans for decades and has created her own business Swipe Right to Bite, an adult hookup app. Gabe has come from San Francisco for his business which is relationship seminars. Katrina believes that Gabe has been sent by Satan to ruin her business because she said no to moving into his castle with him. Satan is not yet willing to let Katrina go. After Gabe’s first seminar lots of men unsubscribed to Katrina’s app so she decided to take revenge on him since she believed he was trying to take her down on purpose. After taking her revenge, Gabe decides to subscribe to her app under an alias and try to convince her there is more to life than just a hookup. Could a succubus and incubus truly have more feelings than just their natural sexual feelings that they were created with?
I have read quite a few books written by this author and she always reels me in with her love hate relationships with a few twists. Katrina is a succubus and she is fasting for her freedom. She hopes she can ignore her demonic urges long enough, Satan will eventually forget about her, and she’ll be free.
While waiting she figures she can help the supernatural’s of New Orleans by introducing Swipe Right to Bite, the best and only hook-up app for the supernatural. If she can’t have sex, she will make sure other supernatural’s will.
Now a newcomer has come to town a retired incubus named Gabe, and he plans to ruin everything with his with his new business by showing the supernatural’s the benefit of emotional intimacy.
Is New Orleans big enough for the both of them? Can they overcome being business rivals to something more? Can Katrina over come her urges or give in? Will she ever be free from Satan?
You need to read this awesome book…
Longing to be free, Succubus Katrina figures if she resists her urges long enough Satan will forget about her. She has spent the last hundred years in New Orleans helping other supes through a dating app that she created called Swipe Right to Bite. Katrina has designed the app with the intention to let supes hook up without love or strings attached. Business is booming for Katrina with her app until Gabe, an incubus, arrives and starts holding seminars about creating loving relationships without sex. Katrina is convinced that Gabe is intent on ruining things for her when people start deleting the app and she starts losing business. Katrina sets out to destroy Gabe because the City of New Orleans is not big enough for them both.
What Katrina is unaware of is that Gabe has made a deal with Satan which involves having Katrina fall in love with him. This will be an impossible task because Katrina doesn’t believe in love and Succubus’s are incapable of love. Unbeknownst to each other, Katrina, and Gabe each find themselves attracted to the other. Determined to not let their attraction affect their judgement they both set out to make life difficult for the other person. Will Katrina have met her match in Gabe?
This was the first book I have read by this author, and she has gained a new reader. Although this book could be read as a standalone, I am thinking that I should have read her other books in the series first. I found the characters of Gabe and Katrina very interesting and thoroughly enjoyed the witty banter between them. The book was easy to read and hard to put down. This book was funny, sexy, and engaging. I highly recommend this book to anyone that’s looking for a paranormal romantic comedy.

I really enjoyed this story. This is my first story by this author and somehow I started with book 6 in the series. Luckily all the books are stand alones and can be read in any order. Katrina and Gabe’s story is super cute, funny, entertaining, and well written.
Katrina is minding her own business, trying to stay under Satan’s radar so she can be free of his hold. Gabe too is trying to free himself from Satan’s hold. Things don’t go as planned when these two meet. Katrina and Gabe clash in wild funny ways! I love their interactions and determination throughout the story.
You definitely want to one click this story. I am headed to get the others stories in this series as well!

Swipe Right to Bite is the sixth book in the New Orleans Nocturnes series. This can be read as a standalone book but I recommend reading the entire series. As usual, there are sassy characters, sexy vibes, and much more going on in the Big Easy. I always enjoy books from this author and this book did not disappoint. I love the dating app for supernatural in this book. I love that they have the same issues as the rest of us “normal” folk. I look forward to the next book from this fantastic author.
I knew from the very beginning that I would like this book. Right around the part at the bar with the Crocodile shifter and I had my first laugh, I knew. I wasn’t wrong! This book was so much fun to read. It was funny, spicey and a fun twist to the normal Paranormal romances I tend to read. I believe this was the first book by Carrie Pulkinen I’ve read, but now I’m going back for the rest! Absolutely recommend!
To be honest I had to look up the definition of succubus and incubus to fully understand the main characters. While this book doesn’t portray them in the same light as the definition I like to educate myself a bit if I do not understand something.
This book is your cutesy enemies to lovers romance with a supernatural spin. Katrina thinks that by being good and abstaining that Satan will forget about her and she’ll finally be free of his constraints. She assembles an app that allows supernaturals to essentially swipe right to show they are interested in a sexual relationship with other supernaturals. The app is a roaring success until Gabe, an incubus, comes into town with his own seminar. It is demon against demon for the relationship expert title of New Orleans and each side has their own secrets, some bigger than others. Can they find a way to coexist and move beyond their own limitations? Or is New Orleans only big enough for one demon? If you enjoy romance books with adult themes then this will surely be up your alley!
A succubus and and incubus who both want their freedom from Satan accidentally fall in love. Katrina runs a successful dating app helping her fellow supernatural beings have no strings attached relationships. Gabe is making his rounds as a motivational speaker of sorts by teaching people to connect on an emotional level rather than just physical. They both have their reasons for wanting their freedom, but is the cost of the deals made worth it? Can they coexist in the same city? I have read other books in this series and have enjoyed every single one of them. Once again the author does not disappoint and keeps the quick wit and quirky sayings coming. This book, like the others, can be read in one sitting as you will find yourself not wanting to put this down.
This is a delightful story. We have previously met Katrina and I really didn’t care for her. But that attitude she has…worked its benefits and she is actively trying to reign in her magic and get herself released from Satan. I really enjoyed her thought process. She is matter of fact and doesn’t understand emotions at all. Her learning and growing made me change my mind and I ended up liking her character.
We do get to see a bit of previous characters..which us always fun. They really band together in here for Katrina even though they are not fans of hers which shows how great they are.
This is the sixth book in the series but can easily be read as a stand alone. I really enjoy this series/book. They have humor, personal growth, fun times and super characters.
Once I got into this book, I was hooked. Gabe is new in New Orleans and giving lectures on building relationships. Katrina has been in New Orleans for many years and has launched an app to help people hook up with one another. Gabe makes a deal with Satan that involves Katrina and she has no idea that it exists. As we all know, Satan does not play fairly.
Swipe Right To Bite (New Orleans Nocturnes Book 6) by Carrie Pulkinen
This series is so much fun to read. It’s romantic and hilarious. In this book we learn more about Katrina, a succubus looking to free herself from the devil. She abstains from sex hoping he will forget about her. She now lives vicariously through other people via her dating app, Swipe Right to Bite. She notices several people have canceled their subscriptions due to a class about emotional intimacy held by none other than an incubus. Believe it or not!
The adventure begins when she decides to attend one of these classes. What a class it turned out to be! This is a classic enemies to lovers novel and a great addition to this series. It is a light hearted, cute book which I thoroughly enjoyed reading.
Holy Hell!!! This book was devilishly devine! I’ve been a book lover pretty much my whole life. I’ve read several different genres. My personal favorite is a good live story. Normally I prefer EXTRA spicy love stories if you know what I mean. This has to be one of the BEST love stories I’ve read that doesn’t have cover to cover sex. The other did a phenomenal job keeping the story between the main characters so good that I didn’t mind the mild spice. She also did such a great job describing how your body feels emotions that I swear I was feeling right along with the characters.
I have absolutely adored every one of the New Orleans Nocturnes Books but this one has to be my absolute favorite in the series so far. I laughed so hard I was in tears at one point and at others I was fanning myself from the heat pouring from the screen of my kindle. This book brings it for sure and I was completely here for it! I couldn’t get enough and my only regret came at the end when the last few chapters came so fast. I found myself reading this sucker well into the night and was up way too late but I just had to know how Katrina and Gabe’s story would work out in the end. This book is spicy and has so many elements to it for everyone that loves a good paranormal romance read with some comedic relief. You don’t have to read any of the other books in the series to enjoy this one either but they are also amazing so give them a look too! I can’t wait to see what will come next!
Adorable, Magic, love, Spicy, AND a good story? YES YES YES and YES! I had no clue there were other books like this I read this story so fast I dove right back in to reread this and discovered things that I had somehow missed. It is a light read however the way that the author describes everything makes you think she’s getting up for a few books, again had NOOO idea this was a 5/5 book. I look forward to reading this again as well as her other books.
Swipe Right to Bite (New Orleans Nocturnes Book 6) by Carrie Pulkinen
Swipe Right to Bite is the sixth book in the New Orleans Nocturnes series. This is a Paranormal Romance that I truly enjoyed reading. I’m a huge of this author and was very excited about this book. This is a perfect blend of Romance and comedy I found myself laughing out loud and getting the look from my three year old. Ha This will grab you from the beginning and doesn’t let go till the end. I got nothing else done for an afternoon of delightful reading. This being the sixth book in this series I highly recommend reading the first five books if you haven’t already. This is a wonderful series definitely going on my list of favorites and re-reads. This is Katrina and Gabes story ,she’s a Succubus who is fasting for her freedom and she runs Swipe Right to Bite which is a an hook-up app for the supernatural. He’s an incubus .These two both are after the same thing but just have different methods to achieve it. I don’t want to give to much away. If you enjoy Paranormal/Romance then this is definitely the book to read. I highly recommend reading to find out what happens next. I can’t wait for more from this Author.
A Fangtastic five-star read. This is number six in the New Orleans Nocturns and it can be read as stand-alone, but they are best read as a series as they are just so good and all of the characters just build into a great world, you would only want to go back and find out more about everyone so do yourself a favour and start from number one. This story will have you chuckling away to yourself, honestly the way this author crafts their characters is just sublime, they feel like the crazies in your life. Who knew a succubi on a diet would be so much fun and so deep.
Review by @saraoxo
This is my very first book by this author and luckily being it is book 6 in the series I did not need the previous books to enjoy this story. It was written very well and did make me smile a lot and even laugh out loud a few times. I could feel that I missed a lot though by not reading other character stories, and I normally do not do that but it did not take away from this one being a fully enjoyable standalone.
I love reading books that are set in New Orleans, there’s just a feeling that goes along with that setting. I don’t normally read this genre but have heard so many good things about this author and I’m really glad I tried it and am definitely looking forward to reading many more.
Katrina is a demon succubus fasting for her freedom from the Devil. She hopes to ignore her nature long enough for him to just forget all about her. She has created a dating app to help herself by helping others, but in walks Gabe to ruin everything including her business! Katrina is determined to kick him out of her city once and for all. Unfortunately Gabe has other plans and deals to make. They are both going to make things very hard on each other! Can the two of them get along or will they destroy each other? This is a funny paranormal romantic comedy that you won’t want to put down! I read this as a stand alone, but I can’t wait to read the others to the set!!
