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.
Brandee gets dragged into paranormal affairs after getting kidnapped while tailing Nick on an inve...more
Welcome to Boston Uncommon...the bar where everybody knows you're supe!
Brandee Hanson is an aspiring photographer working as a waitress at a local bar, Boston Uncommon. She's recently recovering from a bad breakup and has sworn off men for the time being. Brandee hasn't had much luck with men and is shocked when the bar's resident psychic, Sadie, reveals the next man to walk through the doors of the establishment will be her true love. When the in...more
Sadie, the owner's relative had her booth set up to do tarot readings to entertain tourist that flocked to Boston, yet...more
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
"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
The cover looked good, the title and the synopsis sounded like something I would enjoy reading since I love books t...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.
The gods are completely crazy and I’m sure you will prefer avoid meeting Gaia after reading this book ^^ ( I thought she would complain about pollution and such…completely wrong...more
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.
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
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
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...more

I usually enjoy a good paranormal story concept. Going by the title I thought I may have found a good paranormal romance. But….
Brandee an aspiring photographer works as a waitress as Boston Uncommon. Coming from a bad breakup she really isn’t in the market for another relationship. So she decides to swear of men. Sadie the resident psychic lets Brandee know that the next man through the door is he...more
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
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 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
From the Begining You meet Brandee she was broken up over a Text-Message. Which is the prolly the worst way to end a relationship. But anyway. She goes to Sadie the Psychic and She tells Barandee that she will find her Soul-Mate. He could possibly be the next man who walks in the door. Sadie tells Brandee. Then One-Night-Nick walks in the bar. He is drop dead gorgeous. But Brandee is not into One night stands. So she doesn't want...more
Nick Wolfensen, known to the women who frequent the Boston Uncommon bar as "One Night Nick", flirts with Brandee Hanson. 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. Meanwhile, Nick has a danger-filled case involving Brandee's cousin, and Brandee sticks her nose into it.
Filled with quirky, amusing characters, FLIRTING UNDER A FUL...more
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
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 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
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
A wolf walks into a vampire bar…
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.
I’ve read other books by Ms. Chase and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. I’m glad I did. I got to meet intriguing characters and indulged in Ms. Chase’s distinct writing style. The words flow and I was immediately snagged int...more
Ashlyn considers herself lucky. Her degree in behavioral sciences is a combination of psychology and sociology, so she has worked with and studied people most of her life. She never ha...more
