Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs

(Jane Jameson #1)

5618698Maybe 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 twenty-five dollars 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?

MY THOUGHTS 

Spoiler-free

The story– 5/5

Setting of the book– 3/5(It was a little bit meeh)

Main Hero– 5/5 (I loved Jane)

Smexy Times?– Some

Overall – 4.5/5 stars 

 Think I have found the ideal book to read on Halloween! This was everything I love in a book and more. Vampires, werewolves, crazy librarians and mistery men. Basically a perfect book, but the plot wasn’t perfect. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed and laughed reading it , but the plot wasn’t what I expected. Would I recommend? Totaly, just don’t expect anything serious and plot-driven.

Favorite Quotes from the Book 

“See this glass? This morning, I would have said this glass isn’t half empty. It’s half full. And I was used to that. My whole life has been half full. Half-full family, half-full personal life, half-full career. But I settled for it. I was used to it. Did I already say that I was used to it?”

She was the type of librarian who has “Reading is supposed to be educational, not fun” tattooed somewhere.

Welcome to the fascinating world of the undead! Please use this guidebook as a handy reference as you make your first steps toward eternity. Inside you will find information on vampire nutrition, relationships, and safety. But before learning about your future, a word about our past…
—From The Guide for the Newly Undead

When vampires are turned, they buy leather pants. It’s kind of like when human men get divorced, they get a sad apartment and a boat. It’s a rite of passage.

“She finally did it!” I screeched, clutching my cotton-covered rear. “Mama tranquilized me and booked me on Extreme Makeover!”

Why was this sweet man engaged to my Grandma? I can only imagine that he actually wanted to die, and he saw marriage to her as his only way out.
