Overview

Lily Goodwill thinks she’s heard it all, working at a Suicide Prevention Center in San Francisco —then she gets a call from a man thinking about jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. Something about the caller, maybe his yummy British accent or Lily’s ability to understand his crushing ennui, makes her break all the rules and rush to meet him. After all, she is a vampire and if she can’t talk him down she can glamour him and haul him to the hospital.
But things don’t go according to plan. Her caller glows with blue fire and turns out to be a vampire-hating Djinn. Suddenly, for the first time in centuries he’s found some¬thing intriguing. Is Lily really a vampire with a conscience and an obsessive-compulsive disorder, involving Handi-wipes and Lysol—or is she just another bloodsucker?
Add a vampire, with a history of female lovers stretching over three centuries, who swears he’s reformed and loves Lily with all his unbeating heart. Stir in a mean pair of witches and a vicious warlock, who are staking vampires around the city and you have a recipe for riotous adven-ture of supernatural proportions.
Lily Goodwill is a quick thinking, smart-talking vampire who’s still figuring out how she feels about dining
al fresco in the City by the Bay.

Editorial Reviews

goodreads - Celia Juliano
I've had the fun of reading Sucking in San Francisco several times (Jessica McBrayer is one of my critique partners) and it is always fun to read! I don't usually read paranormal, but Lily is so funny and endearing, and Sebastian and Aidan are so appealing, I get sucked in every time (sorry, bad pun!). If you like paranormal romance, romantic comedy with an edge, romance with a bit of suspense, or fiction set in San Francisco, I think you'll enjoy this. And go #TeamBast! :)

    Extremely well written with loveable characters. Jessica McBraye

    Extremely well written with loveable characters. Jessica McBrayer does an amazing job at crafting an entertaining story that any fan of urban fantasy is sure to love. I especially loved the ending and can't wait to read the next book in the series.

    New Series - Hilarious Campy Vamp

    This paranormal romance made me laugh out loud. Loved the premise of a obsessive compulsive girly vamp humanity doing good works to repay her debt to humanity for a few sips of blood once a week. The scenes between Lily and her would be djinn lover and her suave would be vampire lover are smoldering and the scenes between the jealous suitors are just plain deliciously funny.

    Anyone who likes paranormal romance with a side of humor should love this quick read.
