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.

    "Where was the "laugh out loud" funny?"

    Purchased this because of the entertainment factor promised in the reviews (4.2 star average after 1297 reviews). I found it predictable and shallow. Overall, I was a little bored and found myself listening just because I didn't want to waste the money I forked out. However, the narrator performed well.

    "Worth listening to the rest of the series"

    I love Molly Harper and the narrator Amanda Ronconi. I have listened to all of the books that are available by this author and she does not disappoint. This is more chick lit than blood lust, so if you are looking for a loads of action and violence, this isn't it. It is a good tale of the main character Jane. She is hilarious with her witty and dry sense of humor. As you follow this character you come to love her quirks and the personalities of the other characters even more. I hated for the series to come to an end.

    "A great start for the series."

    I've had this series on my TBR list for awhile and after reading How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf by Harper I knew that I had to move this series up my reading list. Then my lovely husband got me a 12 months membership to Audible.com for my birthday, so Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs was my 1st "purchase".

    I love the sarcastic humor that Harper uses in her books. Nice Girls is a fun light hearted read with mystery and romance set in the South were vamps are out to the public. Jane is turned in order to save her life but she does an excellent job of adapting to her new life. Plus it doesn't hurt that her sire is the yummy Gabriel.

    Nice Girls reminded me of a mix between Undead Series by Davidson, Broken Heart Series by Bardsley and a touch of Sookie Stackhouse with the mention of fake bottled blood.

    Not only did I enjoy the characters and plot line; but I found the narrator fun to listen to. She did the southern accent justice. And with me being from Arkansas, I've heard some really bad fake southern accents before. She didn't sound like Forrest Gump while reading the book. She added the extra twang when needed without over doing it.

    I'm looking forward to downloading the rest of the series. Look for my reviews of more Molly Harper books in the near future.

    "Don't pass it up!"

    I wasn't sure about this book when I chose it because I'm not really a vampire kind of reader but I was hooked after only a few minutes! It was alternatingly sad, funny, romantic, suspenseful and really just totally delicious listening. I'm definitely getting the next one!

    "There's something very uncomfortable going on here"

    It's clear that Harper has used the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse series as a sort of springboard for her Jane Jameson series, and there's nothing wrong with that. There are solidly funny moments that had me snorting outloud (and unbecomingly) at work. Over all the readers performance was entertaining, but unfortunately there are a LOT of men in this book, and her voice for each of them started out sounding ridiculous, and eventually all started to sound the same: a gutteral raspiness that sounded like she'd been smoking for 40 years. Which, incidentally, was the same voice for the character that HAD been smoking for 40 years. Now, I understand that there's only so many voices one person can be capable of, so it's forgiveable. What is not so easily glossed over are the parts of the book that required a man's voice for...uh..."sexier" scenes. Then it just became unbearable, uncomfortable, and embarassing. So, while I enjoyed the story, I don't think I'll be able to sit through another performance which will, no doubt, include the same male characters sporting the same awful voice. I think I'll have to get the actual books from the library.

    "It is funny...but a little long"

    I love Molly Harpers werewolf books so I decided to give this series a try. I would say it was a little disappointing. The story it self took to long to get to some kind of ending. It started of slow and continued to stay that way. I felt that a lot of the story was a filler to make the book longer. They tried to add some mystery to it but the book was mostly the main character whining that she has not gotten laid for a long time and also how much being unemployed sucks. The Mother in the book was so annoying that I wanted to slap something.

    I will not say that I completey regret getting the book because if you have read any of Molly Harper books it was funny. It had her touch of humor all over it. If it was not for that and the Narrator the whole thing will but a bust. Amanda Ronconi has the accent for delivery Harper's sassy quips and one liners. The book did have one love scene...so if your not into that not your book. This series will probably one that runs a while..so if you dont was to get involve in another series not your book.

    So in summary the humor was smile worthy. My ears are crushing on the Narrator's accent and ablitily deliver southern humor. I will probably get the other books in the series if I can't find anything else more interesting.

    "What a fun book and a great narrator!"

    I loved this book, even though I'd bought it with absolutely no knowledge of the author. I'm one of those people who do not like blood and gore, nor stories that are too stressful. This book was simple fun. Between the narrator's perfect rendition of 'Jane Jameson', our heroine, and the authors style of writing, there were times I was simply laughing out loud. In fact, I carried my iPhone with me all over the house as I did my chores, just so I could keep listening! Then it went with me in the car and I had a hard time turning off the story so I could work!

    If you like a book with spirit and a bit of sarcasm, but very relatable, this one if for you. I highly recommend trying it for light reading as you drive down the highway. Or perhaps while lounging in the bathtub.. as I did. :)

    In fact, I like this book so much I am buying the next one in this series. And any other titles she may have here on Audible.

    "Borefest"

    Yet another audio book I couldn't finish. Got through a couple of chapters but just couldn't force myself to keep listening. I don't know why everything thinks this is so hilarious. Didn't laugh out loud once - not even a little. If you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you won't like this.

    "Great Series."

    Love Molly Harper, and enjoy listening to Amanda Ronconi. This book sucked me in, and I literally was downloading the next book the following day. Harper's writing is excellent. Spit coffee out a couple of times while listening, so I don't recommend drinking liquids at the same time.
