Bloodsucking Lawyer

Bloodsucking Lawyer Bloodsucking Lawyer by Nadia Diament
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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 his client list consists of creatures that go bump in the night. But, the way Emma sees it, if she can get through law school, she can handle a few pothead werewolves and shoplifting witches. So she stays.

There’s just one thing she didn’t count on, and that’s catching feelings for her new vampire boss. Henry and his fangs become a temptation too hard to ignore, and no matter how hard she tries, she still falls for him.

Problem is, everyone knows office romances have the tendency to crash and burn. But when your boss is a bloodsucking lawyer, odds are it’s a disaster waiting to happen

Book Review
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, witches to name a few that will sprinkle this colorful cast. (Sidenote: The vampires are in Tuscon aka sun central. I know. I know. That was my thought too. Flame city in at any moment.) Enter the sole human that will be a part of this organization, Emma.

Emma with issues of her own wants/ needs to return to Tucson to be more present for her family and spend more time with her older sister. The fun comes in seeing how Emma will handle finding out that her new boss is not quite human and once the lines of professional and personal are blurred the reader is in for some cute romantic fun.

Emma was not the most likable heroine nor was Henry as dominant and self-assured as I would think a supernatural in his position should have been. But, these two worked somehow for each other. I think the author did a good job of setting up this new series by providing a solidly structured plot, two developed characters to introduce us to the Tucson underworld, coupled with a very interesting cast of characters. While I would have liked the pace to be a bit quicker and the story shortened by 75 pages or so, I understand that setting up this new world takes time and deserves to be delivered expertly, which this author did. I think she is off to a solid start.
