Book Description

AJ Ashe may have gotten rid of her vampire stalker and her evil ex-teacher, but things are hardly back to normal. For one thing, she still has to maintain a strict look-but-don't-touch policy with Ryan, her hot ex-boyfriend-turned-stepbrother. For another, she has to learn to control her vampire superpowers—which means more than a few dates with Lex, mind-reading professional vampire trainer and too-sexy-for-his-own-good bad boy. And as if that's not enough, she happens to be the key to her father's plans to take over the world . . . and he'll stop at nothing to get what he wants.

All this and she's still got to plan the prom. Being a teenager is tough, but being a teenage vampire just flat out sucks!

About the Author

Born and bred in Arkansas, Melissa Francis is a small-town southern girl with big-city dreams. The University of Arkansas at Little Rock allowed her to graduate with an English degree, but many of her friends wonder how when she uses words like y'all, dunno, gonna, and fixin' to. Her first novel was Bite Me!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Paranormal Brady Bunch is Back! August 26, 2010
Teenaged vampire A.J. Ashe is back and guess what? Her life sucks, totally and officially. As if being a genetic vampire with a sunny disposition wasn't bad enough, A.J. is dealing with a host of vexing problems, both old and new. Her Mom is pregnant and apparently the baby is supposed to fulfill some prophecy and pull the teeth of the Serpentines - the biggest, baddest, most evil clan of vampires around. Oh and fun fact? A.J.'s long gone Dad is a full-blooded Serpentine and it looks like he was behind the death of her classmate Noah and the attempt to kidnap her at the beginning of the school year.

On a more personal level, A.J. is still in love with Ryan Fraser, her ex-boyfriend and current step-brother (yeah, not right even in Mississippi). After five months living under the same roof as `family,' Ryan seems to have moved on and A.J. knows she should, too. The problem is, she just can't seem to find the right rebound guy, until sexy Lexy shows up. Lex Archer is a hottie, English and twenty-one and he might be just what the doctor ordered for A.J.'s fractured heart.

Lex and his brother Robbie are super-vampire trainers and A.J.'s godmother has brought them over from London to help A.J, deal with her biggest problem yet. The Serpentines have sent a Bborim, a shape-shifting vampire/demon, to capture A.J. and `bring her into the fold.' Thanks, but no thanks, A.J.'s not about to let herself get folded.

Like Bite Me!, Love Sucks! is a fast and funny read with a solid plot, plenty of action and a dollop or romance. Melissa Francis has a real talent for story-telling and her writing prowess is a solid cut above average. An important point, you really need to read Bite Me! first, but once you do, you'll want to gobble this one up, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Bloodlust" just got even better! August 6, 2010
By Jenner
I am neither a writer nor a reviewer. I am an avid reader who can recognize a fun, fast-paced book. After finishing Love Sucks!, I immediately re-read Bite Me! I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the first story. Although I am not a member of the target audience [Harper Teen], I can remember the drama that was high school. What, you didn't have vampires, warlocks, or shape-shifting demons at your prom??? Also present in realistic detail are bloodlust, a back-stabbing best friend, betrayal and redemption. My favorite new character in Love Sucks! has to be Lex Archer- a cheeky British vampire trainer/player who calls you "kitten"....oh, and the innuendo that surrounds his lessons is as thick and luscious as Aunt D's honey butter. The characters are unforgettable, as is the hilarious, brow-raising dialogue. I will leave you with a couple of my picks for best lines. Ever.

"All clowns should be hit with skillets."

" I unsnapped my ass cape, leaned in, and kissed him."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sequel and Great Vampire Book August 6, 2010
Melissa Francis has written a great follow-up, Love Sucks, to her first book about AJ Ashe, Bite Me. There is a lot of great action in this book, fun and crisp dialogue that keeps the pace very high, and the characters are fresh and interesting. Do yourself a favor, and pick up a copy of both 'Bite Me' and 'Love Sucks'; they are both fresh/fun takes on teenage vampires. Trust me, I'm a doctor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love might suck, but this book rocks! August 3, 2010
AJ Ashe (teenage-vampire-girl-next-door) has her plate full. Not only does she have to deal with her taboo romantic feelings for her ex-boyfriend turned step brother, Ryan, she also has to fight off the Serpentine vampire clan that wants to use AJ to take over the world. Oh, and she also has to come up with a prom theme. What AJ needs is to up her superskills. Good thing she has bad-boy-vampire-trainer sexy Lex to help her out!

This book is funny, scary, and superbly written. You'll read it in one sitting!

3.0 out of 5 stars Only One Thing Let Me Down... January 13, 2014
By Ann L.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved Bite Me, it was great and I had to go on and buy Love Sucks so I could see how the story ended.

There are a lot of returning characters in this book as well as a few new faces...some friendly and some not. Lex was by far a favorite in this book! I would have loved to see a different outcome to the entire story, and it looked like it could have went that way, but close to the end of the book everything changes and a new ending is created...and I hated it.

Ok, so that may be a little too strong of a statement....and here comes the spoilers, so if you don't want to know then stop reading...

Everything was falling into place for Ryan to finally be moving on with another girl and AJ had finally found someone to make her forget about Ryan. Everything seemed to be working out great and could have easily continued on that course...but then the author had to throw in a curve ball and so now it ends up with the Mississippi cliche that has been described since chapter one of Bite Me! It was an incredible let down! I am not sure what she was thinking by ending the book with a stepbrother/stepsister intimate relationship! REALLY??? Huge let down for what could have been an amazing ending.

I loved Bite Me and would have highly recommend it, but the last 1/3 of Love Sucks almost ruined the entire series for me. While I loved (almost) all the characters, I didn't love them together. I'm disappointed.
