If falling in love with a vampire sucks, how about five?

I'm not interested in helping the police tame vicious, serial-killing master vampires. But try telling that to detective Jason Avery, my annoying ex, who thinks he can walk back into my life with a sob story and puppy dog eyes to match. According to him, I have no choice. I'm the only Vanth Tattooist left with the pow

Not what I expected. You could say this is anti vampire book given the heroine Verity dislike of them. Yet in this world she has to deal with them on a daily basis until she finds herself in a situation that she has no way of getting out of.
Verity isn't a pushover and she isn't afraid to use her talent but I don't think even she knew what she was in store for. Verity is a piece to a puzzle that only Vampire hold the answers to. There sense that Sander knows what he wants but isn't ready to act

I never know what to expect when reading vampire books. They can either be the same as any other book or if you're lucky you come across a unique way in which the author wrote them.

In this book anyway it looks like we are in luck guys. It's safe to say that I've never come across a vampire written this way and honestly I get really excited every time in which an author has taken a frequently used subject and somehow made it their own. I don't really have anything to gripe about in this book othe
This was my first book by Lea Jade, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I looove vampires, so I was very excited for this book. It definitely did not disappoint. This was such a fast and fun read with incredible worldbuilding . It also had very likable characters. I am looking forward to see what happens next!

I received an ARC and voluntarily gave my honest opinion and review

Verity is an awesome mc. I really enjoyed reading her character and the fact that she wasn't a pushover. This story has subplots thrown in with with the primary, so I have questions! I kind of wished there was more book screen time with the other 2 possible harem characters. Book 1 we got to know a bit about her ex,and Lysander, and I need more. Guess I'll find out in book 2 😁 ...more

I absolutely love this story. The storyline kept you reading, if i wasnt forced to take a break i wouldn't have! It is hot and steamy, full of the undead and humans sacrificed so the vampires could feed! I can't wait for the next one. ...more

This is the 1st Lea Jade. I wanted to like this story because the heroine seems tough. Some scenes are too gruesome for me.
Jun 03, 2021 rated it it was amazing
I love this book, it’s deliciously funny, Verity was a hard nut, and definitely wasn’t a pushover, which made this book so good.

It’s a different twist on supernatural dark romance, that’s very well written, it keeps you guessing and completely captivated.

This book leaves you guessing, hot and frustrated, more questions than answers, and I want to maybe hit a few heads, I can’t wait for more.

Actual rating 3.5

This is a new to me author and I enjoyed this book.
I wasn’t sure what this book was about other than vampires as I didn’t read the blurb. I like to be surprised and I definitely was. Let me start off by saying I enjoyed the plot and I love Verity.
The characters were good. For me personally I would have liked more Lysander throughout. I kinda felt like his presence lacked in the book in moments and I would have liked to see more of him and Verity together as opposed to the li

This is my first time reading this author’s PNR books and she did not disappoint.

What’s a gal to do when she's stuck with a group of guys she loves to hate? Well she keeps them around and now has a harem of sexy fun guys to help her get business taken care of.

The characters were all so unique in their own way and the storyline was definitely interesting. Lea sure knows how to get your heart rate going with the steamy scenes.

Overall a great read if PNR is your thing and even if it’s not, give it

Solid urban fantasy romance

This is an ambitious new entry in the RH space. It definitely gives you that traditional urban fantasy feel, with that classic mish mash of paranormal elements in a mostly familiar urban setting. An entertaining read for sure, but there were some quite big issues.

The world building elements were quite unique, the vanth tattoo marking concept in particular, but other elements were fairly standard and at times, more explanation of the background and AU was needed to ful

Wow…Vampire Love Sucks is a fast read with lots of faced pace action, twist, turns, things going sideways, secrets, revelations, emotions, and lots of heat. I enjoyed reading Vampire Love Sucks and read it in one day. Could not put it down. I really want to know what happens next with Jason, Verity, Lysander, Isa, Cade, and Cherry. Things are definitely heating up 🌡 and I am not talking only of what is going on between Verity and Lysander and Verity and Jason. Vampire Love Sucks ends with a clif ...more

Verity is something not human but not a witch. She uses her power to help control out of control vampires by using a mix of her blood and other things to tattoo a mark on the vamp. But it comes with a cost. Her ex needs her help and she is thrown into a chaotic mess of paranormal problems. An ancient vamp, his team, and her ex all connect to her somehow? Who IS Verity? What exactly is she?

This book didn't go into all the background of the world, the magic, or the creatures inhabiting the world,

I don't normally read PNR stories but I love reverse harems and I used to love all things Vampire, so when I saw this book involved a harem of vampires I knew I needed to read it! Not only did I enjoy the story but I found a new to me author that I'm looking forward to reading more from in the future!

I really liked Verity, I thought she was a total badass and I really liked the idea of the magical tattoos she gave. I really loved Lysander (Ly), there was just something about him that had me swoo

Vampire Love Sucks was a quick paced, spicy dark romance that I read through within a few hours! I love paranormal story’s so I was eager to dive into this one.

Verity was our FMC. She is the only one alive who can tattoo humanity back onto vampires. The price is unfortunately part of her soul. When her ex asks her to help him with a case Verity finds her whole world flipped upside down. I loved Verity! She is a no nonsense character and was funny and smart.

This book was so fun! Paranormal has such a special place in my heart and I love the way she takes vampires and witches giving them her own spin and adds in Vances to the mix. This book was entertaining, kept me fully engaged and ends in a fluffy that had me growling because I wasn’t ready for it to end. She does tell you before the book along with her trigger warnings she will be ending it on a cliffhanger but I was so involved I didn’t realize the end was there! This is a slow burn Rh but that ...more

I really enjoyed this paranormal RH, it was fast paced, a unique storyline and fantastic characters that I can't wait to learn more about. Vampires cam be tricky but this take on them is pretty cool. I don't want to spoil it so won't give much away but here's my take on it. World building - very urban fantasy - this world is recognisable but there are Vampires and witches, more types of paranormal are alluded to. Characters - heroine is tough, edgy and definitely has a softer side but definitely ...more

This was such a fun read.

This is a fast paced RH PNR but with a fairly slow burn. Don't confuse slow burn with lack of steam though Lea certainly has you're back there ;)

I really loved Veritys POV on this, her thoughts made me grin and she has just the right level of FML. This lays the foundation for what is setting up to be an amazing series. Plenty of mystery, shadowy villains and secrets galore. Add in hella hot vampires and off the charts chemistry and what could possibly go wrong? Aside for

Vampires and Witches oh my! 😉

This story puts an interesting twist on witches and vampires. Verity is a witch who doesn't yet realize she is one. Her powers are very unique and it takes a piece of her soul bit by bit. Her ex-boyfriend Jason needs her help with an ancient vampire but things don't go as planned. Lysander is an ancient vampire and there's alot more to him than meets the eye. This is a slow burn RH but all the guys in the harem aren't completely established yet but we can guess as wh

I thought the plot was very engaging from the very beginning, and I definitely want to keep reading the next book to see what happens! The interaction between the characters particularly two of the four she's supposed to be interested in, were sexy and yet with room to grow. One of the other four had a little more interaction with her, the other had very little so I don't really see yet how that is much of an interest. But I look forward to watching this evolve more, and definitely plan on readi ...more

Witches, vampires, oh my!!! Ms. Jade is building a world I definitely want to return to.

Verity is an awesome heroine with her work cut out for her!

Marking vampires is not so easy, as she discovers!

Looking forward to darker, steamier books to come!

This book is a great paranormal romance. It has an interesting story line. The characters all have a lot of depth and it seems that this story just gives the reader a small look into them. Between the snark and the mystery you will not want to put the book down. I can’t wait to read the next book to find out what happens!

I am obsessed with Vampires. Sometimes those books tend to be dull and the same thing written over and over again. Vampire Love Sucks definitely breaks that mold. It is an awesome twist on the traditional Vampire book. It was funny, intriguing and left me wanting more. I cant wait for the next installment and to see where the world the Lea Jade has created end up.

This was a first for me by Lea Jade and if she can pack this much slow burn human, vampire, maybe witch, getting bonded to one another by accident steamy hotness into a short Novella, I cannot wait to see what she can bring to a whole book..Especially, since we were left on a cliffhanger!! Alright, girl you got me hooked! Bring on the vampires!!
