The Vampire wants a Wife is book one in the Supernatural Dating Agency by Andie M. Long. It’s hilarious, cute, and lots of laugh out loud moments.

This is my first taste of this author and I had a blast with this story and can’t wait to read more. The multiple points of view throughout the book where well done and made it easy to dive into both Theo and Shelley’s heads. This book had me laughing a lot from the modern day puns and references too the dating questioner and the answers our supernatu

The vampire wants a wife is my first book by Andie M. Long but certainly won’t be my last. I’m hooked. The story offered more than a dating agency and as the plot unravelled I became more invested in the characters.

This is the story of Shelly. She runs a dating agency even though she hasn’t found her own perfect match. She didn’t know her birth parents and her life could use a little excitement. Shelly is about to get more than she bargained for. Her eyes are open to a new world and a special b

This was the most vibrant, refreshing, entertaining read I've read this year, never mind it being only the start of the year...LOL

Anyway, I had so much fun with this read, that i can only recommend it to everyone that enjoys exquisite humor, charged action and a whole bunch of supernatural characters, from vamps, witches, seers, werewolves, demons, "creatures/sort of dragons", to the Satan himself all rolled up around a 20 smth year old fued and a mismatched love triangle, that evolved in a

Favorite Quotes:

He pushed me away and held me at arm’s length with what I felt to be considerable strength from arm-porn arms that made Captain America’s look like shoelaces.

I prayed to God that the bulge in his pants wasn’t a hot dog he’d stolen from the burger bar and saved for later.

My Review:

I smirked, giggle snorted, and laughed aloud as I read this delightfully amusing and titillating tale. I totally admire and covet Andie M. Long’s clever brand of naughtiness as well as her irreverent and

I've just finished this book and I LOVED it! I've always loved paranormal romance but this book is different to most pnr reads it has humour, it made me laugh out loud!

Shelly runs a dating agency and gets an application from a vampire??? She assumes his a nutter but agrees to meet him.

"Theo, I don’t know why I like you but I do; however, you’re full of shit.”

Theo wants a wife and babies, and now his met Shelly he has his mind set on her. There is trouble afoot in the small town they live.

This book had a lot of promise and sadly none of it was kept. I felt like I was reading something a fourteen year old girl wrote that just hopped on the Twilight band wagon. The story line, although new was not executed well with too many characters, unlikable, and horrible dialogue. For a supernatural book it all seemed too unrealistic and that is saying something. No one in the real world would react to news of a vampire the way that Shelly did, they would have run away and never looked back. ...more

The Vampire wants a Wife has caught my attention a few times – in fact, the Supernatural Dating Agency series as a whole has caught my attention on multiple occasions. It wasn’t until I read and enjoyed Road Trip, which Andie M. Long wrote with Laura Barnard, that I decided to give the series a read.

If I’m being completely honest, The Vampire wants a Wife was more of a three-point-five-star rating rather than the three-star rating I gave it. I had a bit of a debate as to whether I was going to r

Absolutely loved this book! So refreshing to read something completely different to the normal romances around. I normally stay away from paranormal/fantasy books as I find it too confusing to learn about the different worlds and stuff, but this was so hilarious and tongue in cheek that I just couldn't put it down! I can't wait to read the next one! ...more

Want a light hearted, paranormal read, then you better one click this story right now. This is a fun easy going read about the town of Withernsea, a normal town on the surface of things, pretty boring really, well until you know what is going on unseen!!

I loved the characters in the book, Shelley the owner of the dating agency who gets another nut job fill out a form claiming he is a vampire of all things, yea right! She was so down to earth I loved her. Then there is Theodore, the guy who claim

The thesis of this story is adorable.
However, I don't think it was executed very well.
Told from dual POV (though I did not like the male's respresentation).
It's a very fast-paced book.
But I just could not get into it.
I tried skimming it to see if it drew me in, but it didn't happen.

Firstly, this book had been on TBR list for ages and I’m kicking myself for not reading it back then.

Secondly, whilst reading I may have cackled out loudly... and very unlady-likely, many times... it was undoubtedly THAT funny. If any RomCom can get me to ugly laugh, it’s a huge winner in my book.

This could’ve turned out really corny and OTT but surprisingly, the balance of Paranormal and comedy worked out pretty great.

This was a fun light read. I enjoyed the humour and quirky characters. I'll definitely check out more of the series.

I enjoy listening to Angela Doll's voice but my biggest problem with her as the narrator is the characters are British and she is not. That threw me off a few times. She also took some mid sentence pauses which also took me out of the story. I loved how she differentiated the female characters but didn't seem to with the male lead.

OMG....what a refreshingly entertaining story. The Vampire Want a Wife was Paranormal romantic comedy at its best. The story was unique and hilarious and I could not stop from laughing out loud at times. Yes this was a romance, but there was so much more including action, suspense and a range of supernatural characters all coming together to make this tale a fun read. I loved the concept of this story and the humor, witty conversations and unexpected plot-twists made this light-hearted page-turn ...more

I had the pleasure of Beta reading this book!

Theo is a sexy specimen of the undead, and he's after a wife! A vampire wife! So what does he do? Goes to a dating agency of course!

Andie M Long’s comedic genius knows no bounds! This book is laugh out loud hilarious mixed with a brilliant paranormal story!

I was rolling around with laughter from pretty much the first page, it's just so entertaining! I love vampire stories, and books set in the UK- this is both, so a huge win in my opinion! The book

I felt I was quite an experienced paranormal reader and that nothing could surprise me about the genre, boy was I wrong! This book has a totally unique concept and very different from anything I've read before and I loved this book for that! Reading this book sent me on a crazy ride that I never wanted to end! It has humour in bucket loads and I laughed out loud from beginning to end. The paranormal story was also strong enough to keep me gripped and I need the next book to see what happens next ...more

The Undead!

That's what this book is for me. I hate to do this to an author but I can't give it more than two stars. A lot of the time, for me, Theo sounded gay and I just couldn't envision him as Shelley's lover. The concept was very promising but the execution was just that - dead.

Her crazy version of the bit-lit was so fun!
We have all, witches, vampires, shifters, truemates, curses

I laughed so much with Shelley and Theo crazy banters. And Kim, Shelley’s friend is just hilarious as for Ebony and her “vodka affair”.

Absolutely loved this book especially in the format of audio. The narrator had a great range of tone and clarity keeping me engaged to the piece so much so I managed to earn my marathon badge..... a true honour for a first experience at audio.

The paranormal romance isnt something I have delved into a lot but found witty funny and kept a fantastic spark with the intuitive characters within. Loved it and will definitely explore more in the future. A great read in the typical styling expected by th

I enjoyed the the story and the writing was good. However, It’s a little weird to have a story set in England but the narrated has an American accent. This takes away from the vibe of the story!
I am going to finish the series as the I want to see what else happens.
Quality is lacking so it’s hard to follow due to no infliction on different voices at times.
I still recommend this book.

Imagine waking up one morning thinking the world was this one way, to only find out it's completely different than what you could imagine. Shelley woke up one morning believing there was no such thing as the Supernatural until she got to work and started reading one dating application. Theo, a vampire, is looking for a wife he can turn and get back his farmhouse. Not believing Theo, Shelley thought she would humor him. Turns out... Theo really is a vampire. Not only is he not the only vampire in ...more
This is a fun series and book one is free at the moment for you to try.

I really enjoyed this book, I first read it in ebook format and read all the following books as soon as I could get hold of them.

This book, set in a little town called Withernsea (which I visited once to see what it was like and got to explore the lighthouse) is all about how the normal world of a dating agency owner gets turned upside down when she finds out she lives among supernaturals.

A great little romp. I think that this would be an awesome beach read. A combination of supernatural book, little town romance, British romance with some quirky humor and hot chemistry thrown in. Theo the 126 vampire wants to get married and have a child so he goes to the dating agency in town where he meets supposedly human Shelley. And hilarity and sexy times ensue. This book sets up the series and you are introduced to many secondary characters, but you are no overwhelmed by them. I have read ...more

I knew Andie M. Long mastered serious topics in her book, but she also did it in the more light genre!
Paranormal read - I read a lot of those in my life, but nothing like that. This was a fun read, that I can promise! Still, it had also serious ground in itself - past of Shelly and her background. That was so interesting.
Add to it Theo - omg that was so good couple! And I need more of them.
Andie M. Long put us on the edge with that ending!

First in series and first read by this author.

Great premise but fell a bit flat for me. I didn’t find it all that funny and it felt really rushed. I wanted to like Theo and shelly but I just didn’t feel the chemistry between them. Which is a real shame.
