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.
So, why only 3 stars? The plot was a bit predicable, for starters. Also, I have a little pet loathing of authors who repeat themselves on plot points they find important in the hopes that they can get me, the reader (who is clearly too stupid to pick up on it the first time(s) to grasp this terribly important information...Ms. Harper does this. Also, the author has a little trouble being consistent in her details. For example, the boss who fires her in the first chapter is replacing her with the step-daughter, but later she refers to her as the lady's niece. There were other times throughout the series (yep, I read on) that this happens, where she refers back, but doesn't get the details quite right. I find that as well as editing errors jarring when I'm in a story.
All in all, I liked it well enough to read on. I find the characters endearing and the snark quite fun.
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.
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.
