I've listened to all of Molly Harper's Audible offerings, and haven't been disappointed yet! The person that choose Amanda Ronconi to narrate these books should be given a huge bonus! She brings the characters to life and makes them "human" and loveable! I was never a fan of the current vampiric genre, but this series is one of my favorite "go-to" romps for light, mood lifting fun! I can't wait for more! Give Molly and Amanda a chance, you wont' regret it!
This is a book well worth reading but most enjoyable listening to. Amanda does justice to the characters and the plot. The novel is a worthy new chapter in the "Nice Girl" universe with delightfully funny and charming characters, (the requisite surly vampires hero) and a riveting plot. Molly Harper's vampire novels are the only ones that do not want me to stake and bake the vampires.
The story is boring, I kept waiting for something juicier to happen but nothing. Too linear and typical. Like Sookie Stackhouse pulled several notches down then author tried to make it sexy which made primary character easy and trashy. All in all a waste of credit and time.
No. Unless she comes up with something better and gets raving reviews first, then maybe I'll read it.
Too fast. And the depiction of the male characters were really bad.
Funny, Sexy, Romantic
I loved the bond that Iris has with her sister Gigi. They stick together no matter what.
I personally loved the scene where Iris's Ex boyfriend stops by unexpectedly and finds a very sexy Vampire putting moves on his former lover.
Sexy Vampire meets Sexy Human, need I say more?
Molly Harper has quickly become my favorite Author. This is an excellent spin off of the Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs series. Can't wait to see more from her!
I laughed listening to Molly Harper's Driving Mr Dead. If you enjoyed that story, download this one too. Iris Scanlon's adventures start with her sprawl over an ill vampire. Iris then stumbles along learning how to care for Cal.
This book is actually a prequel to Driving Mr Dead. Each is stand-alone though and the stories can be listened to in either order.
Iris is an engaging main character. I enjoyed Harper's use of the 'how-to guide' steps at the beginning of each chapter. Jane, Andrea, and Jolene also find a small space in Iris's world. The narrator fits well with this fun story.
Say something about yourself!
Probably not... it was a good listen, mostly because of the sarcastic and snarky self-deprecation-ey humor of Molly Harper... interpreted and delivered so well by Amanda Ronconi's talented vocal acrobatics... but the plot in itself, and the actual story was mediocre at best... and drawn out for the actual content.
Ophelia... the voice and intonation is like Dahlia Royce from "Suburgatory" I seriously adore the combination of overly-bored, deliberately calculating and sharp words delivered in a slowly drawled, uber girly voice.
Why can't the heroines own being attractive? Whats the deal with all the flaws... c'mon.
Really good escape book. Quick and Witty. Nothing too deep. Just perfect in between read if you have had a lot of weighty literature lately. She is my new go-to author when I just need a break.
I have never laughed so hard. This book is so up beat. It made me cry because I coudn't stop laughing. I loved the story.
I would recommend another of Molly's books. Not so much this one. I felt like it to started to become predictable and drag on.
Not the best.
she did a terrible job with the main male character. I heard Wisconsin, Brooklyn and even Russia in the accent. She couldn't quite seem to find the character's voice.
Sure, I fast forwarded it to finish it.

Perfect narrator. Amanda give each character life through voice. Harper is hilirious, spinning comedy, mystery and romance to create a fun read/listen. This book goes before The Undead Christmas book. I downloaded that one free over the holiday. So it was great to read this one to understand the dynamics of Iris,Gigi & Cal. I wish the Undead Christmas was longer though.
My ONLY bone of contention is EVERY book Harper has penned for the Jane Jamason series and/or spin offs drags you though the back story of Arnie Frink or brings up how Jane was turned into a vampire. I feel its over done. I mean not to critize Harper. I truly love these books. The romance is sexy but not erotic to the point of uncomfortable. I laugh out loud within each chapter over something someone says/thinks. I'm just tired of hearing what I already know. Its a waste. If your reading these books, you already know those important facts. Why keep reminding us?
