Emma left her career in corporate law to pursue her passion for criminal defense, but she can’t seem to catch a break. So when she lands an interview at a small law firm, she’s more than thrilled. But she has no idea what she’s in for.

Turns out it’s not just any law firm, and Henry—her new boss—isn’t exactly, well...human.

Apparently he drinks blood instead of coffee, and

description The entire reason I signed up for an ARC of this book was because it sounded fun. A vampire lawyer who defends supernatural creatures? I mean...already I was in love with the premise. So did the book live up to my expectations? Mostly. The writing was great. I am confused on whether this is the author's debut book or not. At the end on my ARC copy it implies it is, but she has other books listed under her name here on Goodreads. So it is confusing. Maybe they meant it was her debut in the

Well the title alone had me smiling because it’s abundantly clear this author has a sense of humour. This is the first in a paranormal romance series set in Tucson of all places so straight away it is clear that with all that abundant sunshine the Vampire Lawyer Henry is going to have problems and it doesn’t disappoint because oh yes poor Henry definitely has issues with the sun. That would be enough to keep any Vampire indoors but he’s actually got his work cut out defending the local ...more

I thought Bloodsucking Lawyer was a interesting twist to a paranormal genre and I really liked it . This would be the first book that I've read by Nadia Diament and I really see more of her books in my kindle in the future . The characters drew me into the story I felt a strong connection to them and the way the story flowed perfectly it wasn't to fast our slow it was just right . Henry and Emma are so different they really knew how to get under one anothers skin but also meshed really well at ...more

This is the first book in a new series from this author. Emma is a criminal lawyer who has just moved and is desperate to find a job. Henry is overwhelmed with work, and after meeting Emma at the court house, he hires her. This is where the entertaining shenanigans begin! Henry is not what he appears, and neither are his clients. Bring into the mix werewolves, vampires, ghosts, witches and shoplifting fairies, this is a disaster waiting to happen. How will Emma react to finding out her sexy boss ...more

OMG what a great leap into the wacky world of Tuscon dwelling vampires. Can you think of a harsher environment for the UV impaired???

Henry is very much NOT a people vampire. He is slowly drowning now that his criminal defence practice is overtaking his commercial/paper based work. What he needs is an associate. He pretty much lucks into meeting Emma. She left the soul-sucking world of Corporate law and wants to spend more time with her older sister. She needs a job but will she be

I adored the chemistry between this couple. The slow burn was executed perfectly and with great tension. Henry is an unconventional, complex character with a lot going on in his life, and all of these qualities help to make him utterly intriguing as a romantic hero. He's reserved initially and has denied his carnal appetites for quite some time in favor of dedication to his work, but when he lets go and surrenders to passion it is that much more satisfying to see him crumble. 5 HOT VAMPIRE LOVER ...more

Emma is frustrated and she needs a job. When her meeting at the court is canceled, Emma is ready to combust. Lucky for Henry because he needs her help. She needs a job and Henry needs the help but will she go running for the hills when she finds out just who and what Henry is? This is a story that will have you laughing and glued to the pages as Henry and Emma get to know each other and boy does Emma get a learning experience!

This was my first read by this author. I was intrigued by the title. I love a good paranormal romance and to have a vampy lawyer as the lead in this romance had me all in to participate. Henry in all his vampy goodness is overworked and not the most personable regardless of your species. He is serious need of help with his practice taking off thanks to the Tucson Underworld. The thought of an entire para-world had me excited and the author did not disappoint on this front -werewolves, ghost, ...more

The first thing to grab my attention was the title.
Blood Sucking Lawyer - like that wouldn't pique my curiosity.
Then I read the blurb and well all bets were off.
This was a humorous romance with a bit of intrigue and magic sprinkled on top.
It truly was a refreshing read with a happy ending. Well, a happy for now ending. I am looking forward to the next in series.
Henry is not your average vamp. I think 150+ years has actually mellowed him out a bit. He is not a big fan of people, mortal or
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Bloodsucking Lawyer by Nadia Diament is book One in the Tucson Underworld Series. This is the story of Henry and Emma.
Henry is a vampire that defends the supernatural clients and has become really busy. Henry's 'assistant' wants him to get another person to help out. At one court appearance he happens to meet Emma who happens to be looking for a job. When Emma does him a favor for one of his clients he goes forward to hire her. But they both are attracted to each other which makes it hard to

Henry’s an overworked lawyer with a laundry list of problems. 1, he’s overworked. 2, he needs help but refuses to listen to his assistant and hire someone. 3, he’s a vampire and his skin burns every time the sun touches him. What’s a vampire living in Tuscon to do?
Emma has her own issues. She left her corporate lawyer job up and moved back home to Tuscon, thinking that it would be easy for her to find another job. She’s been pounding the pavement but hasn’t had luck. Then one day at the

Bloodsucking Lawyer is an exceptional story of what could be happening in the shadows around us. There are no supernatural criminal defense attorneys in the area and Henry is slammed. He needs help yesterday. After a fortuitous meeting with Emma in court, he thinks he may have found the help he desperately needs. Emma is stressing over finding a job and agrees to meet the next day. Shenanigans, eye opening experiences, and some research blows Emma's mind and sets her on a course she never ...more

Such a sweet and cute twist on your average office romance! I really enjoy office romances, especially when they involve lawyers, but it's even better when the office hottie is a vampire! Emma and Henry's story is sweet with a dash of supernatural.

Emma is a mortal living a normal life with no clue about the supernatural world surrounding her. She's looking to get into Criminal Law and finds herself at the right place and time when she runs into Henry. Henry is probably the most laid back, chill

A strong 3.75 stars. This is a sweet and adorable love story between two completely different people.
This book started out kinda slow for me, but it did pick up.
We meet a very over worked vampire lawyer Henry. He is scrambling around trying to figure out how to be at 2 places at once. He meets our beautiful intelligent Emma while he is feeling frazzled. Emma is a criminal lawyer who steps up to the task, and helps Henry out. Emma is in between positions and Henry is in need of her help. She

Who knew

Henry was a lawyer to supernaturals. They couldn't be caught and risk be found out, as the world didn't have knowledge of them. Emma also was a lawyer looking for a position. Henry and Emma met by accident one day with the hopes she might get a job. Henry was hesitant. When Emma leaned how much she really didn't know but she acclimated to this new reality. Things develop between Henry and Emma. One day all hell breaks loose. They both realize something has to be done. Can they make it

I saw this on SBTB and that title was laugh out loud funny. Vampire lawyer, bahahaha!
The book itself is very charming. The characters have some depth, the banter is witty, and there’s a decent attempt at world building.
It does suffer from some pacing problems. There’s a little too much office/lawyer minutiae. Look, I find flirting over troubleshooting the always risky continuous section break in Microsoft Word sexy (don’t kink shame me!) but not everyone does.
The writing was solid, especially

This is a new author to me and I will be checking out more of the work. Let’s get the negative (IMO) out of the way first it is long like really long. I guess it is setting up future books in the series but wow! And I would’ve liked it if Henry was more Alpha but is really sweet and likable and not what he appears to be. Emma leaves her job in corporate law to pursue a career in criminal law and when hires on the spot outside of the courthouse, well let’s just say chaos ensues. Will Emma be put ...more

Some interesting world building and characters, but it is obviously an early work from the author as the character development was uneven. Sometimes characters came across as intelligent and capable and other times ineffective and oblivious. A plus is that major issues are dealt with and a path is made for going forward. A negative was that the lead characters spent more time on internal dialogue about the hots they have for each other than dealing with the external conflicts of the story - I ...more

My sides hurt...

Omg this book was not what I was expecting at all! It was better! Here I am picking a book that looks more on the serious side of paranormal, then I read the back about a weed smoking werewolves. Open the book up and I'm blind sided with all the laughs mixed in with the serious parts. I absolutley will recommend this book to anyone who loves vampires and needs a good laugh.

I have to be honest, I didnt know how I was going to like this book. I'm not too much into vampires but I am so glad that I gave this story a chance!

Emma and Henry are a great team and I really hope there is a second book so I can see how they help change the supernats!!

This was a very entertaining romance. Emma and Henry's story was fun and enjoyable. I liked both these characters and I thought that the attraction between them was smoky. The story was interesting and had drama, tension, twist and strong emotions. This is my frank, freely posted review.

This was a fun read. Emma, a young lawyer looking for a new job, runs into Henry, a vampire who needs a partner to help him with the daytime court dates so he doesn't fry in the sun. Emma has no idea there are paranormal creatures, despite her sister's special abilities. The sexual tension was great. Colorful characters abound and the scenes are so visual. Around 70% I felt like Emma and Henry's story was done and the remainder of the book was about setting up the series. The series looks like ...more
