Molly brings us into Jane's new world and we get join her on the wild ride. Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs is hilarious journey of Jane Jameson as she learns to navigate the world as a vampire. At the same time try to figure out why someone is trying to get her framed for murder, and keep her secret hidden from everyone she knew prior to her rise. This story is light and fun, and a great escape from the real world. I absolutely loved this book. I only had one issue about the story, and that was the ending was a bit awkward. I thought I actually had an abridged audiobook, but I didn't. Truly an awkward ending, then again it kind of fits Jane's awkward situation. However, the other books in the series didn't have that feeling. It could have been this was the first book in the series. That was my only issue to the story. Amanda Ronconi did a fabulous job and this book. I'm telling you I laugh so hard with her style of narration for this book. If you have a chance to checkout the Jane Jameson books, I highly recommend reading/listen. Plus, you want to start from the beginning. Granted Jane does a lot of recapping in the next books, but it's a lot more fun to start with Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs.
Instead, the relationship between Jane and her sire is complicated, Jane has to struggle to figure out how to handle all the changes, she doesn't automatically know what gifts she may have acquired or how to use them, and there are real and very messy interactions between all the characters. I found it thoroughly refreshing. It's a fun, well-written read, and I look forward to the next one.
**MILD SPOILERS AHEAD: The protagonist, Jane, has never fit in with the townsfolk or even wig most of her family - think of a modern yet country version of Disney's Belle (without the Stockholm syndrome). At the outset of the book she has the sad misfortune of being fired from a job she loves by a miserable and vindictive employer. After being sent home with a gift card to the local bar rather than a severance check she gets drunk and meets an interesting resident she's never met. Disappointed that the mysterious resident didn't kiss her goodnight after seeing her sober up and safely to her car, she heads home with mild worry of fulfilling the her mothers fear of becoming a lonely spinster with no man and no job. On her way home her death trap of a car breaks down, and some kind of way she stumbles into the woods by the edge of the road. Shortly thereafter she is shot and killed by a local, drunk hunter - who mistakenly thought she was a deer but didn't bother to leave his truck and determine what he hit!! 3 days later she awakes as a new member of the undead society of America... where she begins to learn how crazy her new life is shaping up to be!!
This story is about Jane learning how to navigate her new life with the hope of it being more fulfilling than her human one - socially, career wise and most certainly in terms of her nonexistent love Life. While there are a few grammatical errors/typos throughout the book there aren't many and if you can get past them you'll enjoy the book for all it has to offer.
I expected this be a romance with an HEA, but found after reading it that it’s a series, following Jane as she navigates her new world, dysfunctional family, quirky friends and a relationship with her sire. And each one has some aspect of a mystery to it.
Humor abounds as Jane isn’t especially accepting of her changed circumstances. She’s got enough problems with her family so just how and when is she going to break the news to them? Vampires are out, but there is a great deal of fear and prejudice, and someone is out to get her.
Jane’s relationship with Gabriel feels a little off and the story is somewhat jerky with her actions concerning him that sometimes seem to come out of left field. But again, this isn’t the HEA book I thought I’d be reading. Perhaps it wouldn’t have felt off if I’d known that up front.
Definitely an interesting and funny story that seems to drag a little at times. But you’ve got to love the characters.
