“Sucker for Love” is book five of Kimberly Raye’s ‘Dead End Dating’ series starring the fantabulous Lil Marchette. Lil’s a BV (born vampire as opposed to made…think elite vs redneck) whose life has become pretty complicated. She runs a dating service in the Big Apple and she refuses to discriminate. So she matches, shifters, vamps, demons, humans, and she’s trying to get a fae match going too! Problem is that Lil is also VERY un-BV-like in that she’s scared of bloody messes, actually LIKES others, and is afraid she’s in love with a made vampire. Thank goodness she’s still her wonderful, fashion-loving self! This time around she’s dealing with sorcerers, demons, a pregnant BFF, her brother, her mother, and a whole host of others…all while trying to save one of her clients who’s been kidnapped for use in a rejuvenation ceremony, finding new clients, and keeping the ones she has happy. Life for Lil is just a bloody mess!
This isn’t one of my favorite series. I’ve finally figured out that I’m NOT in the target audience for this series. I think it would do better if the sex was toned down and it was marketed towards the teen/YA set. That’s just me though. What turns me off is probably what would do so very well for the younger generation in that many times while reading, I felt like I was on FaceBook. It’s the whole fashionista name-dropping and cutesy, modern slang that turns me off…but if that’s your cup of tea…then you’ll love this series.
