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?!

Why?! Why must it end, makes me so very sad. *sniffles* I enjoyed this series so very much, as it progressed it became better. Comedic, cute and always beautiful. The two main protagonists were awesome. They were also cute and funny. I wasn't much of a fan of the smut though, was more interested in the story. I'm so sad to see this manga go. I highly recommend it for it's occasional hilarity, enchanting characters and the basics, which piqued my interest.

I'm Beginning To Get Scared...
It's a pretty amazing manga, but the potential it has is starting to get sloppy and go down. Kaya... she started out really strong, and still kind of is, but she's becoming a 'I only think about him' character. I hope this doesn't turn out to be another typical shoujo, especially when it started out so well, with so much potential.
Aside from that, it's a really good read, the plots not too typical, and I do love it, it's an amazing manga, it's just that I always get caught up in the little things, so I seem to magnify them until I dislike them. I think that's my personality, so I hope what I just said won't be a bother to anyone. ^.^ And who knows, maybe this is just a momentary arc that will pass. Then I can edit this and say it's pretty flawless. But I just can't see myself doing that yet...
We'll see if I change my rating and if it gets better at the end. I can't see myself dropping this as a read, but if this goes on, I might become a 'I'll read it later' person.

50 Shades of Midnight
With some impact play and some bondage, this would be a better version of 50 Shades of Grey than the original. The story is quite similar (even though Midnight Secretary tells it well, and 50 Shades is full of bullsh*t), and the characters in Midnight Secretary (Kaya, Kyouhei, Marika, Kyouhei's mother etc ) remind me of the respective ones in 50 Shades.

I used to have doubts about smutty mangas. I thought it would be sappy love and lots of sex, but I've been constantly surprised by mangas like Hapi Mari, Emma, Kimi wa Pet, Mars and now Midnight Secretary. Yes, there's sex, but it's not the focus and it's actually very beautiful or very sad depending on the situation.
These stories are captivating, realistic (to a certain degree), and downright amazing. I really enjoy them. This one in particular was fun because it was "supernatural," but perhaps that made it a bit more sad. The fact that they're so different, that they come from different worlds and there's a certain amount of effort to keep a distance is very disheartening. Even after they realize they're love there are still walls up.
But the heroine is amazing. A constant annoyance in manga is a weak character. Yes, women are sensitive, yes, we tend to cry about stupid things, but crying all the freaking time is unacceptable. I think Kaya was beautiful, strong-willed, professional, but still just a soft-hearted woman. Yes, she had her moments, but it's okay every once in a while. That's normal.
I also really liked Kyouhei. I'm really into successful businessmen in mangas, not really because I like their condescending attitude, but because when a guy puts you before his business, that's some sweet love. I also like how they could have anyone, but they chose someone average and not glamorous.
I also like family background in mangas and many mangas lack that. Family and friends, that's what makes you into the type of person you are so you can't just cut that out and focus just on a relationship. Whether it's trying to escape a family, look for your family, fit into your family, I love when it includes that. There's more to life than sex and your lover.
Love, Passion, Family, Business, Drama, that's life and when you have all those balanced in a manga, that's a good fucking story.
One of the best mature supernatural romance manga i've read to date and certainly one of my favorites. The characters are strong, the plot line is interesting and keeps a good pace, theres humor scattered throughout but of a more toned down theme (not much in the way of slapstick). Interesting take on vampires included in the story too. Sadly there are not a lot of manga around that are similar to this and those that are are not even half as strong. Well worth a read if you like supernatural romance.
One of my absolute FAVES
I can read this over and over again without ever getting tired of it. I love everything about this. The art is absolutely amazing and so are the characters. I don't think anything has compared to this (in regards to smut) and i find myself comparing other to this. I swear this has completely ruined me for other manga's haha. My absolute fave <3
This was unexpectedly good office romance manga... I have read it because I wanted to read some manga about vampire, but this was way better than I expected. I really recommend this one as one of the best romantic mangas...

This series happens to be the first Josei manga that I've read, and I must say, it is a bit boring, a bit irritating, and fairly predictable. It is also worth mentioning that I am male. I'm not sure I like the male 'antagonist' around whom the story revolves. He seems like a terrible person, and I have no idea why the story ends as it does.
I'll not rate this because I really don't know how. My usual methods wont' work here. I didn't really like the series, but I didn't completely hate it, either.
Said and done, I wouldn't recommend this series to any but the hardcore romantic, and one who is a bit patient.

Great but then kind of anticlimatic
Usually I don't like it when manga drags on and on, but this was an exception. There was clearly room for more, I mean....it was just TOO EASY. It was too much of the sugary, unrealistic, happily ever after ending. So after all that, the "bad guys" just give up and say - ok, we accept you! Also, the drama and the intrigue from the beginning as well as the character appeal of both kaya and kyouhei really winded down near the end. I hope that the mangaka can write a oneshot or something about kaya and kyouhei's life afterwards.
BUT BUT BUT that is no excuse to not read this manga, for those who have not read it yet. It is a lot better than a lot of the romances (especially vampire romances) out there.

This manga, like everyone else said was great at first, but now it's just sort of bleh, but for some reason I keep on reading, it's like I'm masochistic or something....... my hate for kyohei is like the only thing keeping me going. It's like I NEED to find out what happens to him, just because I want to see bad things happen to him.
yeayeayeah I, too thought kyouhei was hot at first, but he just became more and more bitchy, all I can say now is asshole! This is so bad, but man, I want him to die.
