127) Sucker for Love by Kimberly Raye

Lil Marchette is keeping her dating agency Dead End Dating above water but it isn't easy work. It could be a little easier to run the agency if she didn't have to put up with the calls from her mother but most likely it would be easier if she only catered to humans. Dead End Dating is the ultimate meet-and-greet for the fanged, furry and fabulous and there is never a dull moment or date.

A gorgeous eight-hundred-year-old warlock has kidnapped one of Lil's clients and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. So Lil rushes off to Texas in the hope of finding the warlock herself and saving her client from being sacrificed. It doesn't turn out to be as easy as Lil thought and then her friends and mom turn up to help her.

Will Lil manage to save the day and her dating agency? Can she solve the relationship problems between her friend and brother? Can she stop her mom from poisoning her human sister-in-law? It is all in a days work for Lil Marchette and maybe she will find some time to relax with hunky boyfriend Ty along the way.

It is hard to believe that Sucker for Love is book five in the Dead-End Dating series. Even with the long breaks between the releases in this series I never have a problem keeping up with Lil's life, family and friends. Which I think shows how good and how much fun this series is. Full of action but witty and sassy this series is a perfect blend of the paranormal and chick-lit.

Things are progressing nicely in the big picture but things are not looking so good for Lil and I hope she gets a break soon. I am excited to see what happens next in Here Comes the Vampire but I am a little worried about what they will do to the next book cover. My only peeve about this series is the change of cover styles. While books 1 to 3 had nice covers that suited the series and Lil well, the last 2 books have had completely different styles and look silly. So here's hoping to a nice cover next time.

All in all this is a perfect series to relax and have a laugh with. Lil is funny and the kind of vamp a girl hopes to be. Her family are hilarious and the plot is always exciting. A little romance here and there but nothing too over the top. Vamps, weres, demons and more make this a full paranormal house and a super read.

I always have fun with this series from Kimberly Raye. I didn't at first realize that this book was related to the Dead End books. When I saw the cover online, I assumed it was a single title and didn't realize it til this post! I've been wondering when the next one was out! Thanks for letting me know! And too a loved reading how fun this book was for you.
