ARC Review: Well This Sucks. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Well This Sucks by Carrie Gray

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

I treat eating pancakes on patios like it’s a personality trait. 


Brunch is my jam. I like the beach, shopping, carbs, and reading naughty books on the train during my commute. I wear pink. Lots of it. If Tinder were an olympic sport, I’d take home the gold. I can rock stilettos like they’re a pair of Nike joggers. I’m basically a basic bitch. 


I’m in the prime of my life. I’ve got my dream job as the head of marketing at a sex toy company, and I’ve been steadily dating myself for the better half of the last decade. I’m thirty, flirty, and thriving, dammit. 


Or at least I was, until some fucker had the audacity to turn me into a vampire.


I don’t do blood and doom and gloom. I sure as hell don’t like sleeping in a coffin, avoiding garlic bread, and these ridiculous vamp politics. And don’t get me started on Diego. He’s vampire royalty and a pain in my ass. A very sexy pain in the ass. When he’s not driving me crazy with all his rules, he’s turning my panties into Niagara falls. 


I absolutely refuse to live the rest of my immortal life in some wannabe nineties grunge music video.

So Sucking Good!

Story/Plot: 📕📗📘📙📓

Character development: 👤👤👤👤👤

The setting: The City; The Vampire coven compound; The DVM and a few other places.

The Hero: Diego – King of the Vampires. Though there are people in the Council who want to take him down. Diego usually would kill a fledgling vampire who was turned without permission, but in the case of Drew, he does something different.

The heroine: Drew – a girly girl who loves pink, loves her life, her job at a sex toy company and her friends. Drew is quite a character, she is outspoken, is not the best at following rules and she is definitely not happy she was turned into a vampire.

The Love Story: Diego is attracted to Drew from the first time he sees her and though Drew is attracted to Diego, she loves her freedom of choice and is not sure she is a one guy type of girl. Drew balks at doing what Diego says even though he is the King.

This book was incredibly fun to read. It was sexy, funny and the characters were engaging. I loved Drew and her inner commentary was terrific! I don’t always love an outspoken feminist, but in this case she was a fantastic character and perfect for this book. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely don’t mind feminism, but sometimes feminist characters can be too brash and preachy. Drew was perfect.

Diego was definitely hot and possessive but not too overbearing for a vampire king. He was a bit confused by his attraction for Drew and by some of the things he was doing when it came to her. It made him very relatable. I liked him from the start as well.

I don’t want to go into too much of what went on in the book, but to say that I was entranced from the first page and I loved every minute of this book. I highly recommend it to any romance reader whether you like vampires or not. I am definitely adding this to my favorites. It was literally one of the best books I have read in a while.

On a side note: If King Diego really wants to make Drew’s nude rendition of Chris Hemsworth disappear, I have a great place for it in my bedroom!

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
