Fallen from grace, Monica now spends her lifetimes searching for her next fix. As a succubus she needs sex to survive; although she regularly avoids souls bound for Heaven in favor of those already corrupt.
Each day Drew looks forward to opening his coffee shop where he can serve up the best caffeine there is to offer. He also gets to spend a few hours innocently flirting with his beautiful barista.
Working in the coffee shop with Drew is the best part of Monica’s day, whereas her night job as a stripper fulfills a completely different need. The souls she plucks may not always give her the greatest boost, yet she has never felt as drained as she does now. There is a pattern developing that paints a bulls-eye directly on Monica, and despite the help of her friends, she is getting much too close to dying - permanently. The closer Monica gets to the truth, the more danger she is in, yet her mortality is not nearly as scary as having her heart crushed once again.
Once an angel, Monica still tries to hold onto a thin strand of decency, even as she sips at the life force of others. Her conscience will not let her take those with Heaven bound souls, yet she plays with Drew’s affections time and again. For as long as her character has existed, I kind of expect more from her physically, emotionally, and intellectually. The reasons for her being targeted are also rather vague, and I am looking forward to seeing just how great her powers will become.
