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?!

Agree with Synthoxide
I could accept the fact that a capable secretary can still be lost in love. But a woman in love thought that a secretary had to do her very best (ie. provide/schedule her lover THAT) is insane. I lost my interest after it's becoming a typical shoujo manga.

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.

Can't believe it's not licensed!
This was a surprisingly good story. I was not expecting much when i started reading it, but i liked the blurb. Turns out it's not just hot, but unlike many of the shoujo heroines, this one has a backbone!
This is a great manga! I really like the characters and the plot.
Right when i was starting to get annoyed thinking things wouldn't be going anywhere they did! i]m a guy that's not usually into this kind of genre but i took a chance thanks to a recommendation and it's really worth reading
I started out with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised :)
I really wasn't expecting much when I began this manga. I was surprised how addicted I got. I really liked the plot twists, including the final one, and the romance between the main characters.
There are some parts that start to get too wordy but just when it starts to get to the tiring part.. Some sultry, sexy, lustful parts start to jump right it. I loved it so much I almost wish I was her! Artistry very well defined.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it starts as a girl trying to make it in life with out being looked down on by others because of her babyface. She dresses Herself nerdy so not many people look her way. But she got so curious about her new boss that she found out something creepy. He is a vampire! And be also found out she's beautiful. They start having a sexual affair while he still kept his affairs with other woman for blood. They have to go through so much interferences from others. She is stupid for not caring about her woman self enough. But at the same time it is what makes it more hot and heavy. They end up happy so that's what counts.
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 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
I can't believe I ever overlooked this...
This was one of the first mangas I came across, so I had a lot of choice when I decided to read this.After looking at the art and reading the first two chapters I quit...OH HOW I WAS SUCH A FOOL...I've come back to this about a year later and , wow it is really good, I can't find fault in anything.The fact that the manga only has 35 chapters is amazing, because each chapter was used to the fullest it really felt like it was an appropriate amount..The mangaka was amazing, because she choose story over money, and didn't let the story drag on for the sake of money.I'm actually happy I didn't read this back then because its really feels like the best manga I've read in ages...Seriously read it ! Properly ! Don't do what I did
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.
