Review of Love Sucks by Sage Collins


Mailee Jones is about to answer the age old question: "How much love would a love sucker suck if a love sucker fell in love?"

Mailee is a Haustrix, an otherwise normal girl with a demon gene that causes her to consume love from any human she touches. Afraid of draining anyone completely, she's been leading an isolated life, relying on Eric, a hunky lust-draining Haustor and the only person she can safely touch. She's content to avoid humans for all but the quickest possible hand-brushes with the dreaded cheerleaders to keep from starving.

Until she meets Logan, a diabetic who is the first human to understand Mailee's anguish over her diet. But growing close to him means risking his love for her. Mailee's convinced it's time to do something--anything--to become human. But the only antidote requires her to release and be systematically infected by demons representing each of the Seven Deadly Sins. Sloth and Pride? Okay, fine, but sins like Wrath and Envy aren't so easy, as proven when possessed-Mailee punches the cheerleader who's making eyes at Eric. Can she honestly get through all the sins?

Not to mention this new issue--is she interested in Eric instead? Because if she turns human, she'll lose him. Forever.


"How much love would a love sucker suck if a love sucker fell in love?"

After reading this part in the description, I was not so sure about this book.  It  was just a strange description.  Once I got past that part, I enjoyed the book.  

The premise of this story was creative and unlike anything I have read in the past.  I never knew quite what was going to happen.  I wished there was a little more background on their powers, why they were all different and how their race lived.

The storyline was really cute and I wasn't sure whether to root for Eric or Logan.  They both seemed to genuinely care for Mailee, they both were hot and they both had their own issues.

I wished the sins were a little harder to find, more of a challenge I guess.  They affected Mailee, but not for a very long time.  It seemed like they were gone as fast as they were there.  Never the less, I enjoyed watching each of the sins being released and how they affected Mailee and those around her.

There was a satisfying ending to the book and I like story lines ending up wrapped in a neat bow.  It is a great upper YA paranormal read.  I have to rate this unique book four stars for its creativeness.

  1. Great review. I felt the same way. A lot of the book I was like Logan or Eric. I was kinda disappointed the sins didn't last longer or have more of a dramatic affect. I totally wasn't sure at the end what she was going to choose and I was happy with the ending also. Great review as always!

  2. This is the right website for anybody who would like to understand this topic.
    You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that's been written about for many years. Wonderful stuff, just great!
