This is my second go at reading a book by Ashlyn Chase and I’ve come to the conclusion that her brand of humour just isn’t for me. Her flaky characters, unrealistic relationship progression and unfocused plot make me feel like I’m reading under the influence. Flirting Under A Full Moon is a light, girlie read that’s a good choice if you’re sitting by the pool sipping mojitos.

FLIRTING UNDER A FULL MOON looked and sounded like a super cute paranormal romance. Unfortunately, I was more than a little let down after reading this book, since it was pretty much a boilerplate paranormal romance with frustrating main characters and a boring, forgettable plot.

My biggest problem with FLIRTING UNDER A FULL MOON was that Nick is possessive and kind of creepy. He thinks he knows best and frequently shows that by his actions, time after t...more

It had finally happened, the one night-night Nick has laid his eyes on a woman he wants more then just a one night fling with. Brandee Hanson is a waitress at Boston Uncommon, a bar owned by a vampire named Anthony who is also inspiring to become a photographer. The last thing Brandee expected was that the man who was predicted to become her lover was a woman known in town not to settle down. After catching Nic...more

Review from Backchatting Books

"Flirting Under a Full Moon" is a paranormal romance with a temperamental heroine, a highly possessive hero and plot lines flitting off in different directions. Private investigator Nick Wolfensen who specialises in supernatural cases, has been hired to find a missing girl. He makes the mistake of discussing the case with the resident psychic in the supernatural bar he frequents. Brandee, nosy waitress and wannabe photographer insists that he let her help. I found i...more

Brandee is a waitress trying to make it as a professional photographer. She over hears Nick, also known as One-Night Nick, talking about the mayor’s daughter Kate being kidnapped. Brandee is upset because Kate is her cousin and she wants to help find her. What Brandee doesn’t know is that Kate is a fire mage and that Nick isn’t human either… and now she has the pictures to prove it…

The cover looked good, the title and the synopsis sounded like something I would enjoy reading since I love books t...more

I love her Strange Neighbors series and was excited about this book. However, I was slightly disappointed with some of the dialogue, it didn't seem to flow right in places. I also wanted to smack Nick upside his head in too many various parts of the book. However, what truly had me giving this book, which I did enjoy, a 3 star rating, was the sudden expansion of the Strange Neighbors world. It was confusing and left me wondering if I missed something in the previous books. I totally get needing...more

Actually, I really did like this book. Ashlyn Chase made me laugh out loud on several occasions. I like the fact that there wasn't any really foul language to the story. I did get to the point where hearing Brandee utter another euphemism instead of a curse word actually got to be a tad bit too much. I liked the idea of the Boston Uncommons bar, a neutral ground for the paranormals. I also liked Mother Nature and the "issues" surrounding her, shall we say, fertility problems......That was a hoot...more

“Flirting under a Full Moon “ is the perfect title if you want a fast, uncomplicated, easy read about werewolves and other paranormals. I really appreciated reading it and it was amusing and fun, not exceptional but with some great bits of originality.

It has been a while since I read a book that I wanted to bin. Bad doesn't even cover it. Cringing is more like it.

Juvenile writing, bad characterization, fucked-up world-building, no plot worth its name, deus ex machina a go-go. I can't think of a single positive thing about it. Sorry.

This was a cute and quick read that delivered on all things supernatural. There were wizards, shapeshifters, brownies, vampires, and just about any other paranormal you can imagine. The world was silly and fun and had me immediately diving into the next book immediately after the last page of this one!

Brandee is a human bar waitress at "Boston Uncommon", a paranormal bar (in which the human staff is unaware of the paranormals). She's been dumped a few dozen times, but this one (via text message)...more

It's not a bad book, but it's not a good book either.
The problem with this book in my opinion,
is that the story line is actually not bad, but it's just not executed very well. At all.

Minor spoilers ahead, consider yourself warned.

The book holds no sense of time. It's like only a few days have passed, when suddenly Brandee says "We started dating in September and it's not even Halloween yet." I was dumbfounded. That much time passed? How? When? Why? What? O.O
And precisely because there is no prop...more

Flirting Under a Full Moon

You know when you pick up a book with lots of high expectations and realise too soon that it isn't quite going to make it? Sadly, Flirting Under a Full Moon was just like that. I've read some of Chase's Strange Neighbours series and enjoyed them and this new trilogy is set in the same world, with guest appearances from characters from the Strange Neighbours books.

Our hero is Nick, ex-policeman, turned private detective who also happens to

I loved this! Ashlyn writes really fun stories.

We find Brandee working in a paranormal bar (though she doesn't know it) and Nick is a a patron. We met Nick when his twin, Konrad found his mate Roz in The Werewolf Upstairs. I'm so glad he got a book :).

It was fun to see Nick screw up constantly. Not only is he messing up with Brandee but Mother Nature isn't very happy with him either. See Brandee follows him when he is investigating the kidnapping of her cousin. He doesn't know that she's there...more

Looking for a romantic comedy with a paranormal twists? Then look to FLIRTING UNDER A FULL MOON by Ashlyn Chase for a fun read.

In this day and time of electronic communication, Brandee Hanson gets dumped via a text message. Moments later a psychic tells her she’s about to meet the man of her dreams. To top it off, she’s barely making a living as a waitress at the local bar.

Brandee really wants to be a top photographer and she knows to get ahead she’s got to capture that once-in-a-lifetime photo....more

I have Ashlyn Chase's Strange Neighbors series, but haven't read it yet and didn't think I would need to in order to read this book since it's a start to a new series. Yeah, I was wrong. Nick is the twin brother of Konrad from book 2 of SN and there was a scene in this book talking about things that happened in the other book and didn't really explain it here so I was confused about what they were talking about.

Flirting Under the Full Moon by Ashlyn Chase is the first book in the Flirting with Fangs Trilogy. The book opens with Brandee Hanson being dumped via text message. Before long this waitress that wants to be a photographer catches sight of a bar regular, known as One Night Nick. She would love to get a little closer to him, but not if that means it only lasts for one night. Little does Brandee know that she works in a paranormal bar, and that Nick is a werewolf.

There are a lot of different authors writing in the paranormal romance genre, and I really appreciate those who include humor amidst their stories, even where there is danger involved!

I really enjoyed Ashlyn Chase's Strange Neighbor's trilogy, with the apartment building that attracts the paranormal, and those that might be open to the possibility! I love that she is branching out of the apartment to a bar in Boston run by a vampire, who wants to create a place where the supernatural can come t...more

Brandee doesn't want much to do with Nick, especially since she just got dumped via text. Before long, Nick, a werewolf, realizes that Brandee is his mate, but convincing her of that may be difficult.

I haven’t picked up an Ashlyn Chase novel in a while, not since The Werewolf Upstairs – and Flirting Under a Full Moon sounded like it would be fun and sassy, so I thought I’d give her novels another try.

For the most part, it delivered. Brandee’s take on swearing is funny, and she’s got a great personality. Some of the other funnies weren’t quite my thing – Nick’s sense of humor is typical of a teenage boy, and Mother Nature’s...more

A good paranormal read that is funny, exciting and romantic with the addition of having many magical properties and paranormal characters that keep you on your toes.

Brandee is just a regular human female. A beautiful and struggling artist that works very hard to make ends meet, she has high hopes to one day become someone great and noticed in the art world, but no means to do so. She’s not given up and does not plan to. But when she’s introduced in to the world of paranormal, she gets side trac...more

I'm about halfway through right now and it sounds a little (actually, a lot) like a Keystone Cops short: a whole lot of "wait, that shouldn't happen" and "what the heck?!?". Correction: I believe the term I was searching for is "bumbling around like lunatics".

I'm hoping that the latter half will involve some substance (or at the very least some reason why I shouldn't smack either main character upside the head), but luckily I wasn't looking for substance when I picked this one up or I'd be highl...more

Full Review: http://www.twimom227.com/2013/04/revi...

Flirting Under a Full Moon is what I would classify as “chic-lit.” Although it is paranormal romance, the overall feel is very silly and light, the humor is more goofy than witty. At times I enjoyed this style of story-telling, but at other times, it annoyed me terribly. During what I would label “serious situations,” the story was told with cliches and goofy attitudes, which did...more

Flirting under a full moon was amazing! I just finished it and couldn’t wait to write this review. Literally, I’m smiling ear to ear. Granted, at first I had a hard time getting into the book and I found some of the character personality traits annoying, but by the end I was impressed by the book and thrilled that I had read it. I really fell in love with the characters and sympathized with their plights. I found the book to be romantic and fun. Some parts were not very believable or over the to...more

Discloser: I received this ARC through the Goodreads First Readers program.

Brandee Hanson is a budding photographer working as a waitress in a Boston bar when she meets "One-Night" Nick Wolfensen. Through the not-so-subtle machinations of the bar's resident psychic, Brandee is informed that Nick might be the man for her. She is, however, quite skeptical, having just been dumped by her boyfriend via text-message.

She soon learns that Nick isn't quite what he seems -- he's a werewolf on the down-lo...more

Okay, that sort of sounds like the start of a bad joke. Flirting with the Full Moon is anything but a bad joke. There are twists, turns and lots of white hot fun involved.
