From Viz: Kaya Satozuka is a brilliant secretary who excels at her job, which is why she doesn’t bat an eye when she’s assigned to be personal secretary to Kyohei Touma, the very difficult managing director of Touma Foods. It doesn’t faze her when her new boss seems determined to make her fail, and she even manages to take it in stride when she discovers the secret behind his prickly behavior…he’s a vampire! But while Kaya easily adapts to late nights and keeping a schedule of his “dinner dates,” will her ultra-competence help when Kyohei’s smoldering gaze starts turning her way?!

This was so cute! I absolutely loved it! I wasn't sure that I would like it as I started to read it, but by the first couple of pages I couldn't put it down. It is the only manga that I can read over and over and over again.
It quickly took the place of my favorite manga, and I seriously don't think it's going to change.
Although some consider this to be misogynistic manga, I've found only few "traces" o that, and they are actually interestingly used version of Cinderella syndrome (Google it -_-). Main male character is a person with many complexes (not that it actually "redeems" his behavior, but who has ever see a "bishie" without some interesting "fault" ;-D ), and he hides them behind his "evil" ( ;-D) behavior (well, if I had to seduce multiple women just to feed, I'd probably be even worse than him >_<), and as it is shown later in this manga, feeding from only one woman is quite troublesome (in more than one way). On the other side, main female character is seemingly timid girl, which looks as if she is easily pushed around (Oh boy! those who think that are SO wrong!), while actually she is just someone who is not obsessed with being "on top" or being "the boss", and when she needs to, she can be quite stubborn and strong-willed, and besides, she is NOT STUPID (why does everyone think, that if someone is not aggressive, it means that he/she is stupid?), but actually quite intelligent (she shows it on many occasions). Besides, she is CUUUUTE!!! All in all, this manga has some interesting character profiles (although a bit standard type), without that annoying "what will happen next" angst. (bit of that is OK, but most authors go WAY overboard with it) I have to say I liked it, chuckled at some parts, was all "aw cute" at others, and had to bite my tongue to stop myself from going all "MOE" at some.

Cheap thrills, very misogynistic.
Gross. I didn't finish it, but I've had enough seeing dumb heroines pushed around by jerks like this vampire. I can't believe it's so popular. Why people are aroused when the relationship is abusive I'll never know.
This is a decent read, but if you ask me it gets a little slow in some parts. The beginning and end chapters are a little faster paced, but the middle becomes awfully repetitive... lots of uncertainties and beating around the bush. I kind of skimmed a couple of the chapters in order to push to the end.
The relationship itself seemed kind of... unrealistic. I mean, yes, it's already unrealistic given the male lead is a vampire... but some areas where I felt a more dramatic response was needed never built up to a high enough climax. I never found any edge-of-the-seat moments, the drama wasn't hyped up enough for me... the drama they did have going was repetitive and boring.
Despite all this, there are other qualities that salvage this manga. I personally, loved the art. Not only that, but the female protagonist is strong, and doesn't always sit back like a damsel in distress. She's hard-working and actually has a personality. =)
Love the Charcater development AND CHARACTERS! Great Plot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! love the ending!!!!! omg i just loved this!!! but the art was .......lets say it has alot of potential to make it better......overalll I LOVED THIS!!! reccomeneded to those who love deperately in love bad men turn soft-ish and strong-willed 'potentially pretty' female character

i wouldnt call this a bad manga, nor would i call it good. It makes me a little irritated on how the characters are. Well, characters arent always made to be liked so maybe its jus me.↲Its not a bad read. If u're a romantic, u may like ths cos of their somewhat forbidden love. But it'll annoy u on how slow their romance builds up.
A smutty manga with actual plot and content! I enjoyed reading it from the beginning and really loved Kaya-chan's character and personality. The ending was sweet and wrapped up the manga well but I was hoping to see more, like what happened in the future concerning the couple and the vampire clan. Either way, the Josei was a great read and I do recommend it to anyone who's looking for smut without annoying high school girls who can't think or act for themselves (Kaya-chan is so professional, I love it!!!).
Lovin' this manga!
I'm only about 1/2 way thru this manga but I'm really enjoying it. I guess every taste is different but I LIKE strong, slightly abrasive, intelligent, seemingly heartless men. I find them very hot. This male protagonist is right up my alley. Someone bring me a fan!
It started out quite promising but then it became ridiculous. I thought the main character would be a strong person but the fact that she is the perfect secretary is what makes her weak. What kind of self respecting person would do what she did? Also, I really have no idea how they fell in love, I really didn't feel any romantic atmosphere between the two of them throughout most of the manga. Another thing that bothered me is that after a while it got overly repetitive. They even kept saying the same words over and over again. Lets say we had to listen to a recap in various parts of every chapter. If I hear about "the pride of a vampire" one more time, I swear I'll go nuts! I'm being really nice by giving it this rating.

l LOVED it!!! *may contain spoilers*
Ok,this was the first josei manga i've read and at first i was a bit hesitant about the smut part but when i read i was glad to realise that the smut decreases as you move thru it. this has simply been the most delightful read since a while.
A lot of other shojuo mangas are well, the character (girls) are weak and the men are all "Ooh, I'm a good guy and I'l protect you from whatever". And when you do come across a manga that has a strong girl they just digress into a weakling.*cough, Akuma to Love Song cough, cough* But I'm glad to say that Kaya stays strong throughout the whole series and doesn't just give up when he supposedly "ditches" her also when problems occour she doesn't cry and wait for someone to save her, she helps herself. And Kyohei isn't the above-mentioned good guy he's well, he's flawed and doesn't try to change [except the playboy thing] himself into a good guy when he realises that he loves Kaya. He also doesn't lead her on about certain things[weddings and children] he tells her straight bout them.
Te only thing i didn't like about the manga was the ending .I feel the mangaka could have ended it better with, maybe a bit on what happens after she has her kid and all that. That's the reason it got 9/10 instead of 10/10.
However this manga isn't for everyone but if your're looking for a read that is a change from the sparkles and light of shoujo then this is good for you.
I wouldn't recommend this for younger girls [12 and under] simply and only because the of the SMUT. Other than that I think its pretty damn good!
