Summary

Darcy Blackmore, head of the Blackmore vampire clan, is one bossy, arrogant, insufferable piece of work.

He’s also my only hope.

I have to stop my sister from marrying his brother. A loveless, arranged marriage would kill her, but she’s determined to go through with it to keep our family safe. Nightfall tradition demands a witch and vampire marriage—ASAP—or we’re out.

Darcy’s solution?

We pretend we’re a love match, trick our siblings into confessing they don’t want to tie the knot, and sort out how to save the town once the wedding bells are silenced—permanently. It’s not a bad plan. In theory.

If only hate-banging Darcy weren’t my new favorite hobby. If only he’d kept his secretly kind heart under wraps and this fake love had stayed fake.

Now I have to decide—keep pretending with the world’s sexiest vampire until I lose big at love or leave my new hometown behind. Forever.

A paranormal rom com with extra comedy

I am a sucker (see what I did there...) for a funny paranormal romance that makes me laugh out loud, and this Bella Jacobs book ticked all the boxes - feel good, funny, romantic, extra funny, inventive and just a rollicking good time from start to finish.

Blaire is determined to do anything she can to drive the Darcy, the notoriously cantankerous vampire, and his family, out of town and out of her life. But when they are forced to team up to keep her sister, Annie, from marrying his brother, Colin, things take a turn for the unexpected and Blaire finds out that Darcy isn't at all as bad as she thought. Their shenanigans and scheming not only brought tons of humor, but also chemistry that is off the charts!

Add a bunch of supporting characters that are way off kilter, like Janet and the house kraken, and a town that may as well be the definition of weird in the dictionary, and you know this book will provide hours of hilarity. Plus the narration by Shane East and Lili Valente perfectly enhanced the writing. Bella Jacobs not only wrote a great hysterical paranormal rom-com, but the audio was perfectly cast. Shane and Lili have some comedy chops!

I loved every minute of this book!!

I absolutely fell in love with Blaire and cranky Darcy. These two were hilarious and hot at the same time. It cracked me up how each thought they knew what was best for Annie and Colin. Constantly scheming to figure out how they will get them to split up. Oh, how wrong they were. I loved their journey from mutual dislike to everything in between and more. It cracked me up how vehemently they deny being interested but to themselves they can’t stop thinking about each other. Hell, I had to get my fan out to cool myself down on more than one occasion because Darcy and Blaire were ON FIRE!
Blaire and Darcy, as well as the other crazy characters like nutball Janet and the weird kraken in the pipes, will keep you on your toes with everything that happens. I was guessing until the end. And I want more of the people in this crazy supernatural town!
I could not put this book down. Bella Jacobs wrote a freaking fantastic story! It’s that combination of good storytelling and stellar narrator performances that bring it all home.
So many great lines in this book expertly delivered by Lili Valente and Shane East. These characters were tailor made for these two narrators. They know just how to bring the right amount of spice and humor into the performances.

Vampire/witch rom-com? Absolutely!!

What a fun, fantasy-filled story by Bella Jacobs! When Blair moves to Nightfall to help with the preparations of her sister Annie’s wedding, neither of them are ready for the shenanigans of this supernatural town of witches, vampires, pixies, and such. Blair just wants her sister’s wedding to go off without a hitch, so Nightfall is saved from ruin. Per ancient rules, she has to marry Colin (a vampire) to continue the safekeeping of everyone that inhabits Nightfall. When Blair meets Darcy, Colin’s brother, all she sees is a grumpy vampire that she doesn’t trust. Darcy feels the same about the witch about to become his sister-in-law. To their surprise, Darcy and Blair have something in common—wanting to stop their brother and sister’s nuptials.

Darcy and Blair have an attraction to each other, but neither has any plans to act on it. There are a lot of things going on in Nightfall, and I really enjoyed this story. Plenty of heat between Darcy and Blair, and as they get to know one another, they realize their first impressions of the other are kind of way off. There was plenty of funny moments in this story, which I really liked.

Shane East and Lili Valente beautifully narrate this story.

Simply Not For Me...

So this was just okay. I wasn't really sure that I could get behind this romance from the beginning because Darcy calls Blaire some pretty harsh and mean things for a good long while. Also not really a turn-on to be nicknamed "Goblin" first as an insult and then as a pet name. I also didn't love that she had to change prettying much everything about herself so that he could pretend they were dating. And of course he's suddenly like she's beautiful... It turned me off a bit, this stereotype that women are only attractive if they're made up to the 9's with fresh hair cut, color, manicure and designer clothes. It's sexist. Also as a sidebar, when he sees her sister in loungewear he literally says he'll tell his brother what she looks like because it will slow his rush to marry her. What the actual hell... She's just wearing glasses with no makeup and in loungewear in the comfort of her own home in the middle of the night. No one is put together 24/7.

So the romance... I'm not a fan of enemies to lovers so that didn't help. But even once they start to like each other, it's all about the sex and their physical chemistry. There is very little about the emotional side of things, just that they're very suddenly in love and are fated mates which came out of no where. It was hard to buy into their relationship

The world building could also use some work. We're only given sprinkles of information here and there and nothing is ever really elaborated upon. We still have very little information at the end of the book and I get that there is a sequel, but I wanted more.

Overall, this romance ended up feeling more like lust than love and it wasn't for me. I don't think I'll be continuing on in the series.

Lovely characters!

What an interesting and fun story! It made me chuckle and the chemistry between Darcy and Blair was red H-O-T!! I enjoyed scenes with these two. There are a lot of fun characters including the small one.

I listened to this on audio. The narration is one thing that made this so much fun to listen to. I look forward to more in this series.

Great Listen

I am so in love with this story. It's such a great para-romcom that I can't wait to read more about this family. Darcy and Blair have amazing chemistry. I have not read a para book in a hot min and this story reminded me of why I love them so much. Bella did a great job setting the scene and transporting us to that small secret town. I only wish the story was longer...lol. I got so lost in all the ins and outs of the mystical realm. I can't wait to read about all the other sisters.
Lili is the absolute best narrator around and I love to listen to anything she narrates. She brings a special something to the characters.
Shane East is always amazing in anything he narrates...he always knows how to bring best listening experience to a story. These two together are pure gold!

Lili and Shane are magic!

Bella Jacobs does paranormal romance like no other. My Big Fat Bloodsucker Wedding was just brilliant. Fun and sexy and filled with vampires, witches and various other creatures who entertained me from the first line until the very end. I had the pleasure of listening to this in audio and Lili and Shane killed it! I love the way they sound together, but this one was just magic. The independent witch trying to help her sister and the sexy, jaded vampire trying to help his brother. This is one of my favorite audiobooks ever! It's just that good. If you are on the fence about whether to grab it, do it! You will not be disappointed. Shane and Lili really do bring their A game and the story is just so fun and exciting and sexy! The writing, the plot and all the characters are the reason we read romance!
