Although I do not enjoy the werewolf type of story, this one was entertaining. I would not want to listen to a series of these though.
Dave started listening to this first. He kept laughing out loud every few minutes so I knew I needed to find out what he was hearing. I found it as enjoyable as he did. As I got to the best parts I would stop and tell him where I was so he got to LOL twice for the same situations. Hilarious situations make the book a fast read. I will definitely keep this selection in mind as a book to lighten my mood when I am reading something heavy. Can't wait to listen to more by this author! Kathy
This story was entertaining and kept me interested the whole time. A light read, no brain strain involved. However, the narrator was awful. Her voice was harsh and her accent was all wrong. The main character was raised and had lived in Mississippi for her entire 29 years. Even with working to minimize it, she would not sound like this woman's abrasive voice. She did a terrible job on men's voices, making them sound more like obscene phone call voices. I will put her on my "never to listen to again" list. There are 2 others on the list, so I don't easily put people on it.
I had listened to Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs and didn't like it much. Found it unorginal and too similar to other series. I was hesitant to get this book, however, I thought this book was GREAT and I'm super happy I gave it a shot. Totally original and a very intertaining story. Once of the best listens for me in quite a while!
I love Molly Harper's sense of humor, she has a way of turning a phrase that is incredible. I like listening to her books to pick up great one liners along with the mind candy.

This story had me laughing out loud many times! More than flirting goes on, a little explicitly, but it was OK. Definitely not a children's story though. My only complaint was that most of "voices" used for men were practically a whisper, so I had to stop, back up, and listen again carefully because I'd missed something. However, the story is worth that little bit of trouble. None of the characters are very deep, and the story is fairly light, but it moves along steadily and kept me entertained from beginning to end. Highly recommended! I'm sure I'll listen to it a couple more times, and will try more Molly Harper books.
The werewolf idea has been overused but that is not the problem with this story, which is light and fluffy and OK in many ways. The problem is a narrator who is pretending to be a twenty-something from the deep south, specifically Mississippi, without a Southern accent. Nada. The accent is referred to in the text at least three times but it is totally missing. The male voices are Ok, although not inspired, and the voice of Alaskan natives are Ok accent-wise but very similar. Narrator just brings this nice, mediocre novel down.
Is it just me?
Not heavy listening. Listened to this while I was laying out in the sun--which was perfect because it didn't require a lot of brain power or stir many emotions. Humorous relationship with her parents--very Santa Cruz for the south. If you want something mindless, this would do.
This book was an easy listen. I could not pay attention and still come back and know what was going on. I would listen to Molly Harper books again, but only if they were on sale, and I wouldn't waste a credit on this one.
