Lilah Blakelea is a succubus, one of many demons who wander the Overworld in search of souls to feed on, who can't seem to find success. The time she takes on her seductions has never reached true fruition. Unwilling to give up, she steels herself with a new resolve: perhaps she simply isn't letting herself be vulnerable enough. Succubi feed on intimacy, of which there are many more dimensions than Lilah has learned so far. With a new name, history, and university application, she sets herself on her next human: Io McGann, a prickly freshman who could really use a friend.

Little does Lilah know, Io is a member of a prolific demon-hunting family. Following this realization, everything begins to fall apart.

Along the way, her goals shift as she finds herself falling hard for her quarry. As Lilah and Io continue to orbit around each other, they both come to realizations about what they really want from this life.

What are they willing to change for love?
