I bought this one because I am a huge fan of the vampire books. I found myself wondering whether this was suppose to be a quirky modern take on relationships or a bodice ripper (and I hate that term) in disguise. If I had wanted to buy a romance novel I would have. Okay, I get it. Werewolves are hot and sexy, but geez, this volume read like a porn film. I am NOT a prude in any way shape or form, but after the scene in the front seat of the car I found myself annoyed. If she could have toned that down, brought in more of the local characters it would have been a winner. I love LOVE LOVED the characters and wanted to hear more about them, not just grunting and thrusting.
Not really its just ok. Did laugh at some of it. Predictable
Never listened to her before. She does get high marks on some of her series so I might try another
Ok sometimes voices annoying. When the author says growl her voice is more of a whisper
I simply enjoyed this story. It was very lighthearted and funny. I adored the southern colloquialisms. They had me laughing out loud. My laughter only increased when learning about Mo’s parents (Boy, Can I relate!). This is not to take the place of the story, which was very good and kept me listening. This was a purchase I certainly will not regret.
Molly Harper's stories are fun and her characters are witty; however, something seems to be lacking. The consistency of the world she has created and writes about leaves something to be desired. While her vampire and werewolf stories overlap, there are aspects of her story telling that leave me wondering if I entering the world she has already created when I pick up a new book. Also, I began listening to Molly Harper because I enjoy Amanda Ronconi's performance; however, I find myself wondering if I find the characters to be oh so similar due to performance or writing style. I believe this book, and the rest of Molly Harper's, are worth experiencing, but if you are a stickler for the details, like myself, you may pull out some of your hair in the process.
No, I have read other books of this type that I enjoyed.
No, her voice was annoying.
What a waste of good money!

In top group of light fiction. It's about werewolves, yes, but that was not the dominant theme. It is a light and entertaining romance with a bit of adventure.
Cooper. Got over himself to fall in love.
Good tone of voice. Fast pace.
Wanted to hear the end and wanted to continue listening. Help my attention.
Actually quite funny in places. Light and charming. Well written as a fast paced book for a fun read. Narrator was good. I was not expecting much but ordered due to reviews that it was funny and I was looking for something light. It had a bit more depth to it but it was so closely woven into the content that I didn't realize how well done it was at first. The genre of urban mythology has been improved by this book. I will most definitely order the sequel. It was just plain FUN and I have to repeat myself, better than expected, funny and had a strong but quirky charm. Good for the car or when doing a task around the house.
Take the sex scenes out and this book would fit perfectly with the young adult audience. Nothing wrong with YA genre - some great titles in that genre - but in this book, I found the attempt at light hearted humor and raunchy sex too incongruous. Also, no tension between the main characters. As with most novels that bore me, I ended up not caring about the characters. So, I turned it off. Hope this helps...
A GREAT FUN READ, EVEN IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN WEREWOLVES. I AM A FAN OF MOLLY HARPER'S WORK, YOU CAN COUNT ON A LAUGH.
Paranormal-urban fantasy book lover!
Yes yes and heck yes.
It is funny and entertaining. Ronconi does a perfect job of narrating the different characters!
Attitude, spice, spunk. The perfect narrator for this book.
I was laughing through the entire book.
Once I listened to Harper's "Nice Girls" series, I immediately bought all of Harper's books from audible and am very glad I did. I have listened to all the books several times now.
Although I understand the choice of narrator because of the lighthearted character of the novel, I objected strongly to the voices of Alaskans sounding like Sarah Palin. The heroine is incredibly whiny and I could not find any common ground with her. It was a fairly good storyline for a short and fun paranormal and the sex scenes were well done, but I felt the dialogue lacked intelligence, depth, or creativity.
Unfortunately, I accidentally bought another book by Molly Harper and was dismayed to find that the narrator was the same as in this book. I was wondering if a less annoying narration would make the annoying dialogue less annoying, but I guess I won't find out. The maturity of Molly Harper's heroines seems to be a collective 16, and yet, as other reviewers point out, the raunchy sex makes the books inappropriate for readers with that maturity level.
The narrator could have been less whiny. I know she was constrained by the whininess of the character, but I think it could have been done better. And the accents for Alaskans were offensive.
If you have a lot of free time and have been using your brain too much lately, it would be worth the listen. And despite my bad review, overall it was rather entertaining. It is the listening equivalent of eating 4 large Hershey's bars. This would be a perfect listen for after finals in college.
