Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs: Jane Jameson, Book 1

Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - The Molly Harper/Amanda Ronconi pairing has become the stuff of Audible legend, and it all started with this book. If you ever feel like the vampire romance genre has all gotten a little bit too serious and swooning for its own good, this is the perfect antidote. The kick-off to the delightfully quirky and laugh-out-loud funny Nice Girls;... series, as well as an equally popular spin-off series, this book has been a non-stop hit with our listeners. — Emily

Publisher's Summary

Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead. And thanks to the mysterious stranger she met while chugging neon-colored cocktails, she wakes up with a decidedly unladylike thirst for blood.

Jane is now the latest recipient of a gift basket from the Newly Undead Welcoming Committee, and her life-after-lifestyle is taking some getting used to. Her recently deceased favorite aunt is now her ghostly roommate. She has to fake breathing and endure daytime hours to avoid coming out of the coffin to her family. She's forced to forgo her favorite down-home Southern cooking for bags of O negative. Her relationship with her sexy, mercurial vampire sire keeps running hot and cold. And if all that wasn't enough, it looks like someone in Half Moon Hollow is trying to frame her for a series of vampire murders. What's a nice undead girl to do?

Love in vein: bite into more of Jane Jameson's paranormal exploits.

    "Hilarious! More comedy than romance"

    Molly Harper’s books are so funny! Sometimes I forget I am reading a romance novel. Her witty writing and Amanda Ronconi’s narration are the perfect combination. Just brilliant!

    "definitely entertaining"

    i was looking for a 'new' author and came across Harper. thought i'd give the book a go as i was in the mood for something light but not frivolous.
    was pleasantly surprised at the funny (though not 'ha-ha') narrative and the engaging characters.
    came back for book 2 and i'm now on book 3.
    well wworth the read, as it would put a smile on your face...

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Cute Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs to be better than the print version?

    Audio is much better!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs?

    It's packed full of humorous moments.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and I just LOVE her voice!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had a few laughs. Molly Harper has that effect.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a fun listen. If you want a listen without all the sexual content then you'd like this. I prefer "HOTTER" stuff. But I do love Molly Harper/Amanda Ronconi and the laughs I get from listening to this combination is worth doing without the more steamy stuff occasionally.

    "Great Find"

    Molly Harper's humor is much like the glitter on a gypsy wedding dress ,,, all over the place and way over the top. Her books are sort of like listening to the Librarian of the Damned channel Tina Fey (or the way 'round) I thoroughly enjoyed every word.

    "Mediocre entry in the vampire romance category"

    The narrator's voice didn't do it for me on this book, though I have enjoyed Ronconi's narration in the past. However, I think the book itself is a fairly mediocre entry in the vampire romance category. Sort of heavy-handed humor, cliched comments, etc, though the scenes with the newly-made vampiress and her BFF seeing how many ways she can NOT die was amusing..Overall, kind of boring. This genre is saturated, though.

    "Molly Harper + Amanda Ronconi = perfection"

    Fun, light and thoroughly entertaining. All of her books are wonderful and Amanda Ronconi is the perfect voice that makes the stories come alive.

    Travel is essential, snowboarding a need. I love speed: cars, motorcycles, boards. Food is more than a requirement; on the best days it's a supreme indulgence.

    "Funny!!"
    Where does Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's ridiculously silly...in a good way! I've laughed or had a smile on my face through out the entire book. I guess I should've expected that from this author/narrator combo, but still. I actually snorted water into my timely-placed hand once.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her narration allows me to differentiate between character and, though her men's voices are not as fabulous as her (southern-dawl) women, she's really great.


    Any additional comments?

    I found this book really entertaining and a quick read. It brought a little supernatural silliness into a couple days :)

    "A happy-go-lucky story with quirky characters"

    Molly Harper has become my go-to author whenever I’m in the mood for a happy-go-lucky story with quirky characters and Amanda Ronconi has the perfect sarcastic tone that helps add some extra oomph to an already hilarious tale. This book is a great way to break a reading slump or to lighten your mood. I think Murphy’s Law: “anything that can go wrong will go wrong”, was written with Jane Jameson in mind. Each chapter begins with a cute quote from The Guide For The Newly Undead; Harper also did something similar in her The Naked Werewolf series and I’m happy to see that it wasn’t just a one-off because these tips are hilarious! Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs will make you laugh so hard that you’ll end up in tears (in a good way!).

    I discovered Molly’s books backwards; after having enjoyed her werewolves so much I just had to check out her vampires too! Please keep in mind that I am left-handed though so I tend to do things a little out of whack compared to most. Jane and I hit it off instantly! How can you not want to learn more about a character who gets fired from her job, drunk, mistaken for a deer and then shot within the first few chapters? You can’t. Jameson is ditzy, sarcastic and lovable. She’d probably drive me crazy in real life but as a fictional character, she’s freaking hilarious! Her shenanigans are laugh-out-loud funny and the situations she finds herself in are baffling in their absurdity. More often than not I found myself thinking “this could only happen to Jane”.

    There’s a decent amount of world building in this novel which is expected seeing how it is the first installment of this series. I enjoyed learning about Harper’s vampires, the undead council and especially Jane through her internal monologues. The main story struck me as kinda odd; at first I wasn’t really sure of its direction and then as the pieces came together I was quite stunned by the overall turn of events. They were… unexpected. I’ll be curious to see what the next installment has in store because I had trouble identifying a plot line that’d continue into the next book. I’m thinking that these novels might be episodes in the mini-series that is Jane’s life which is fine by me because Jameson’s world definitely isn’t dull!

    The side characters are just as lovable as the main one; I especially liked Gabriel and Zeb. The former is undeniably sexy but begins this story with a stick up his butt. At first I found him stuffy, a little stuck-up and rather mundane but, as the book progresses Jane slowly chips away at his snooty outer shell. I enjoyed watching his transformation and by the end I was putty in his hands. Zeb’s a normal guy who suddenly finds himself with a werewolf girlfriend and a vampire for a best friend. At one point, he repeatedly stabs Jane just to watch her heal. Their experiments with her undead-ness are beyond funny!

    Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs is good, clean, fun and guaranteed to make you look like an idiot because you will laugh out loud and receive dirty looks from those around you.

    "Charming, funny, could not put it down!!"

    I am someone who normally likes the Black dagger brotherhood type of books, but so pleased I tried this book. The characters sense of humour is great making me laugh out loud. Just a touch of romance, very funny and a great start to a series. I have just bought books 2 and 3.

    "nice surprise"

    My first ever audio book, was nicely surpriced. Laugh out loud funny with an interesting plot. I liked it so much that i'm going to buy the series in paper back. I recommend this series to any one that enjoys funny female vampire stories.
