Rating: 8/10

 Synopsis from Goodreads: Kiyo is a struggling student who strives to become a lawyer and clear her father's name. When she inherits a mansion from her late grandmother, Kiyo thinks she's finally hit a streak of good luck. But she soon finds out that the mansion is already inhabited by a couple of vampires, including the handsome Kuroboshi, who seems to have his eyes set on Kiyo for his new vampire bride...

Review:  Bloody Kiss is a funny, adorable, cute and quick manga read that will keep you smiling all throughout the book! This book is simply adorable. You have funny characters coupled with an cute line that inexplicably binds all of them together!

Something I found funny in this book that for some reason annoys me in other books is Kiyo, the main character's, easiness in accepting the fact that two vampires are living in her new house. Usually the main female protagonist is easy to go with the flow of the paranormal (which I find annoying for some reason) but Kiyo accepts it garlic necklace and all. Not because she expecting to find two hot vampires living in her house and that fact doesn't freak her out in the slightest, but because that's just her personality.

I did want a little bit more romance out of the book. But the cute budding romance made this manga a good read. Something I did find weird though was Kiyo's submissiveness after a while. I mean living with a vamp is okay, but letting him go on biting you all willy nilly doesn't see like it would be any girl's cup of tea, no matter how good looking. But that fact didn't overshadow the rest of the book. And really who doesn't want a hot guy chasing after you, even if he does want your blood.

This book was really cute, quick, and enjoyable. Not the most intricate plot line, but fun and enjoyable anyway!

Recommendations: Manga lovers will love this book. And those looking to being reading their first couple of manga's, this book is perfect for you!
