Description
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?!

Gotta love the main character. She's pretty logical, sensible and doesn't run around screaming all the time.

Edit: The plot's not too shoddy for a romance. However as of late, it's getting a tad too sloppy, what with the many scenes spent on thinking about love and sex and the typical "rival" business which meh... is introduced in a typical shoujo fashion. Well, there's nothing wrong with those 2 factors but you could always breath life into cliches by making them absurdly ridiculous/interesting like what some manga(BL/shounen/josei/seinen/etc.) do. Sad to say... the manga's so serious at times, that the plot gets a tad too mundane given the heavy emphasis on the main character's thoughts and her relationship with the "rival" and well, the typical "jealousy" angle.

This is one of the mangas that you will be like, "if tbis happen in real life, I would totally hate it." But then you keep on reading it and then smile when it finished. This is somewhat like Twilight (more like 50 shades of gray but 8 havent read it so I cant make that comparison)... the story is good (alright for twilight) in the beginning and then there the guy became a jerk in the middle.. and so on... if I knew the chick in real life, I would tell her to get away from him n thought their love is a mess (the one that usially on the mauri show). But this manga just kept me coming (read and reread) and jeot on hoping everything will be fine for the both of them and that they wouod live happily ever after.. yadayada..

One of the best office romances I've read

The boss-subordinate relationship in this manga is played out really well. The mix of an obnoxious executive and a diligent secretary is a rare find in josei mangas dealing with office ladies a.k.a. OLs. Usually, the office lady is incompetent and clumsy, but the heroine here is extremely talented but not without fault though. She's the type to stick to her sense of duty to the point of giving a 100% of herself. This weakness is taken advantage of by her boss who also appears to be a supernatural heartthrob.

I was first turned off by the whole vampire concept. However, when I read the first chapter, I found myself finishing the series in one night! I even came to like the vampire twist because of how the vampire society was conceptualized in this manga. It's truly a josei gem!

Honestly i had become so sick of the vampire mania that i kept avoiding this manga. but this is awesome! the heroine is wonderful. She has a backbone and fights for what she believes in. the stress placed over her being just a secretary was a bit overboard. But other than that it was pretty good.

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.

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!

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.

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.

I really loved this series if for nothing more than the fact that the heroine had such an "I've made my bed, now I have to lye in it" attitude. She was not a cry baby, and she never made excuses for neither her love interest nor herself when their integrity was questioned. Just because she bared with her boss and his bad attitude, it doesn't mean that she was being passive. A prime example of being passive would be the majority of Shinjo Mayu's female leads. If anyone else here has read most of her works, then I probably don't need to say anything else. That's a REAL example of the whole barefoot and pregnant BS :/.

As far as her becoming weak during the middle of the series...I really don't agree with that. She was human and experienced moments of weakness, just like most others do. No one's strong 24-7, so seeing her resolve waver made her less of a Mary Sue and more of a human being (with feelings, doubts, insecurities, etc)...and I really appreciated that. I also appreciated the fact that she didn't feel the need to change her love interest, but instead made an effort to try and understand him-- and ultimately accept him, faults and all. She didn't bend to his every whim, she compromised. Big difference there.

Yeah, Kyouhei was a jerk, but people are who they are-- and some people are just jerks by nature. That's not excusing all of the crap that he pulled, but no one's perfect. I didn't think he was too bad, considering the fact that he was a vampire, raised on a completely different belief system than most humans. And he could have been doing far worse things than being a class S playboy; which he stopped doing on account of the main character, btw. It was a gradual change, but how realistic would it have been had he just stopped right then and there?

Anyway, I could go on and on about what I loved about this series, but I won't. Obviously it's not something that everyone's going to love, but I'd always suggest at least giving it a try. Don't let my opinion sway you, because my taste is my taste smile . I'm just grateful that it hasn't given me a headache like Vampire Knight *sorry, but it's true*

Bottom line: I loved this series no matter what anyone says.
