I really enjoyed Molly Harper's last book but this one was too much of a romance for me.
It was basically the same story as the "Nice Girls Don't..." series, very bland, same humor same everything, no variation.
No i will listen to other books in this genre but not by the same Author.
yes i have, exactly the same tone and mannerism.
Very disappointed in the lack of originality
As a mom of young children I like to listen while I do laundry or dishes etc. Audio books give me the chance to read (listen) more!
Molly Harper is so funny she is difficult to compare. I like the lighthearted take on fantasy or paranormal fiction. I wish there were more to compare it to.
Yes, she is good in this one too.
I enjoy the Half Moon Hollow world she has created. It is inventive and a good take on vampire fiction. No particular moment was necessarily moving but the overall story hooked me.
This books was a lot of fun and felt a lot more like a full novel than most novellas do. The characters were well developed and the plot didn't feel forced. Miranda is so funny, like all of Molly Harper's heroines tend to be. Narrator Amanda Ronconi did a fabulous job, just as she has done with other Molly Harper books. All in all, a fun, light read (or listen).
When I first started listening to this book I thought ,"how did I ever download a vampire book.?" After about 10 minutes I was hooked and laughing. I listen to books while on long road trips. This book was too short! Wanted more.

Laugh, rewind, laugh rewind, laugh some more. Wipe the tears from my eyes. Quote

Once you start this book you will not want to stop, unless you have to hear that again. :)
Yes, easy listening. Kept my attention, and found enjoyable. Didn't have me glued to the book, but I would recommend.
My tastes vary. I like PNR and some HR. I have been known to like YA and NA just as well as some naughty bodice rippers and other romance books.
Surprisingly pleasant read.
When he tells her she talks in her sleep.
Miranda. Love her.
Laugh. It was so good!!
Another fun Molly Harper. Similar to Susan Elizabeth Phillips, she puts her characters through hell, often leaving them desperate and broke in some unlikely location, only to let them claw themselves back for their HEA. I'm not always a big fan of gratuitous protagonist suffering, but like SEP, Harper seems to make it work.
I have two quibbles with the book, one with the narration and one with the story: First of all, Colin's voice was not very masculine. It made him sound like a wimp, even though he wasn't. Pretty unsexy. This was a shame because the rest of her narration was perfect.
Mild spoiler ahead:
My second quibble is the heroine's actions toward her former fiance. Yes, he was a total scumbag and he probably deserved a great deal of psychic pain, but breaking someone's nose is just not funny. A good way to test this is to ask, would it have been funny if the characters' sexes were reversed? No one would ever try to play a man breaking a woman's nose for laughs, under any circumstances, and I thought it was offensive here too. Ineffectual attempts at violence by a woman toward a much stronger man can sometimes be mildly funny, but a broken nose isn't ineffectual violence. This made me dock the book by a whole star.
I haven't read the print version of this story, but I really enjoyed the audio edition! This is a delightful story in the best tradition of Molly Harper's Hollows series. It's a fun, sexy story that doesn't take itself too seriously. And Amanda Ronconi's interpretation makes this an easy listen. Again, she finds a new voice for another woman from the Hollows. It's amazing how she manages to make them sound like they're from the same town, without sounding like the same person. Brava!
I really liked Miranda. She tries so hard to be what she's supposed to be, and it always blows up in her face. She just soldiers on. You have to admire that kind of tenacity.
Amanda Ronconi makes sure that you never miss the humor of the situation. She makes the funny parts funnier, and the sexy parts feel natural...not awkward.
This book made me laugh out loud several times. It also made me smile a lot. Two reactions I'm looking for when I read/listen to a Molly Harper book.
