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.

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

    Top 20%, I recommend it, the story is funny, not overly steamy like some books, which can be embarrassingly too detailed, ... sexy, but tastefully written. She views her "turning" as OMG, what next ! Talk about bad days ! Some of the deep south characters and thier southern drawals are nicely narrated. Frequent chuckles, a few great belly laughs, an overall good read.


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

    Her humerous way of delivering the sarcastic quips, her narration is perfect,

    "Very entertaining"
    What did you love best about Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs?

    It was surprisingly funny.


    What other book might you compare Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs to and why?

    Compares to Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series. Both are about vampires who have come out to mainstream society and feature other supernatural species


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

    No I have not.

    "So funny, but predictable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this for a light reading only to all fans of the vampire fluffy romance genre


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

    The speaker does a great job in accenting all the humor used by the author, a lot of parts during the reading made me smile


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if I will be reading all the other books... the best feature in the story is the author's sense of humor, all the rest is pretty much a recycle of the usual vampire novels... I found the Sookie Stackhouse series to be a lot more interestingly structured and love scenes are way more intreaguing than this series. The love affair in this first book is not so developed but maybe this will be done in the next books?
    Maybe I will give the second book a chance, I noticed that this first book got lower reviews anyways...

    Any additional comments?

    This series has been so much fun to listen to! The narrator is fantastic. I couldn't stop listening. While the story is a little predictable and the mystery is easy to figure out the characters make up it. The heroine is funny, sarcastic, and so snarky. I laughed out loud countless times. I waisted no time getting the rest of the series and Molly Harpers other books as well.

    Story
    "Love her quick wit and quirky characters!"

    I usually hate vampire/ paranormal books, but this was funny, sexy and witty! Jane gets fired from her job as a librarian, a job she loves and spills her troubles to a man she's never met as she drinks away her sorrows at a local pub. The good thing is, Jane is not a whiner, but has a quick wit and sarcastic humor and the man is intrigued. But he doesn't invite her home and she's bummed. Then her car quits on the way home, she falls into a muddy ditch, gets mistaken for a deer by a drunk hunter and is shot. Days don't get much worse. Luckily, her stranger found her and asks, "Do you want to die?" Jane says no and thus begins her days as part of the newly undead. There's a gift basket from the local "Undead Welcoming Committee" complete with handbook, the special foods section at Walmart where she can buy her synthetic blood all night and a whole new life she had never imagined. And of course, the man who saved her, Gabriel, who is smokin' hot and wants her. Her best friend, Zeb, who almost becomes her first meal (and no vampires do not kill humans -they only take what they need, but Zeb doesn't know that yet) joins a friends and family of vampires support group where he meets a wonderful werewolf. Then there is her dead aunt whom she can now see and talk to, her pushy mom, selfish sister and a vampire horn dog that won't leave her alone. The story is funny and the characters are great! Love Molly Harper's sharp sense of humor!

    "Deliciously Hilarious"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. This is a must read for anyone looking for a book that uses all the stereotypes yet keeps it refreshingly light and funny.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jane was, of course, but we can't forget Zeb! Mainly because he cracks me up and is unflinchingly loyal to Jane.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    The attitude! Amanda totally made the book funnier than it would have been if I would have read it.


    Any additional comments?

    I had low expectations for this book...and now I feel like an idiot for ever thinking negatively of it! This will go on my to-be-read-again-and-again-and-again shelf. :)

    "Fun Start to an Excellent Series"

    Molly Harper has successfully made being undead funny. Like some of her other books, "How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf," and "And One Last Thing," she even managed to lace a certain humor in the most serious of moments. You'll enjoy hearing the things that could only happen to the main character, Jane. The narrator, Amanda Ronconi, is the perfect choice for these books. You won't be albe to stop listening.
