4.5 Stars! It just keeps getting better

It’s like a sitcom in my ears!! Filled with funny, heartwarming scenes, this book is a winner! Jane and Gabriel work out their problems…love, love, love Gabriel...and they move forward in their relationship. Jolene and Zeb, await the birth of their children and deal with her overbearing werewolf family…and Jane intervenes on their behalf, and with all her new vamp power…watch out! But hands down my favorite moments involve Jane and Richard ‘Dick’ Cheney. He

Angsty vampires are...well, angsty.

This book seemed shorter and a quicker read than the disappointing second. Not sure why, since there wasn't non-stop action or anything, but it was more enjoyable. There is a small background of danger and mystery throughout most of the story, focusing on an issue of doubt Jane is having with her sire Gabriel. I must say I was surprised when the villains were unveiled at the end. Unrealistic one of them wouldn't have been noticed, very, but with this kind of

Audio Book Review

The Story:

Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever is the third book in Molly Harper’s Jane Jameson series, which is a cross between Contemporary and Paranormal Romance, with the slightest hint of Chick-lit.

As is always the case with Molly Harper, the storytelling is brilliant. My earlier slight disappointment in the world building is gone, and this story is romantic, funny, sexy, fast paced, and at times poignant. The story takes place in the quirky small town of Half Moon Hollow where va
The third in the series and the best so far. When I started my next book in a different, darker series I found myself missing Jane and her crazy cast of funny friends and family. In this addition someone is trying to kill Jane and there are absolutely no suspects. While characters reveal more about themselves, some things come into perspective and her belief in people's basic good nature may be returning. All of her friends and even some unexpected family members rally around her to help root ou ...more

So sad to see this series end. I enjoyed the laugh out loud moments. The hilarious wit from the previous books continued in this book as well despite the nasty situation Jane was in. I cracked up so many times reading this book, and I love the author's ability to make light of even the worst predicaments, so that you don't feel like you are reading something unhappy. MH did a wonderful job of wrapping up this one, with no loose ends. Which makes me worry that rumor to number 4 is nothing but a r ...more

I am really enjoying this series; each book is funnier than the last. And Amanda Ronconi is the prefect person to bring this world and characters to life on audio. There is just enough mystery to the plots to keep you reading/listening to see who the bad guy is in each book. After reading a lot of darker books lately it’s nice to take a step back and enjoy the lightness of Harper’s world she has created in the Nice Girls series.Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever p
I was kind of debating whether to award this 3 or 4 stars, but I went with 4 in light of the hilarity. =)
I was actually looking forward to this book quite a lot - the sneak peek at the end of the previous one left me curious as to what would happen with Gabriel and Jane.

This book focuses a lot more on their relationship, something I found a little lacking in the previous books. These books pull me more because of the humour than the romance, which has always come across a little flat. I've alway
*review contains spoilers*

I have to say that this third book in the Jane Jameson series is the best so far. Jane Jameson, a newly turned vampire (a year ago) goes to Europe on vacation with her sire/love Gabriel whom she first met in book 1 (Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs) after she was fired from her small town's library as the children's librarian. Only given a coupon for potato skins instead of a last paycheck, Jane goes and get trashed while talking to a handsome stranger (Gabriel). She leaves

I think this book is the best book among the three of this series. The book put in most of puzzle from two books before. We get to know more about Gabriel’s background and his reason becoming so secretive about his trips to other countries. Many great developments happen here as Jolene’s pregnancy, serious relationship of Dick and Andrea, and of course Jane’s break up with Gabriel.

I can’t blame Jane becoming angry with mysterious and enigmatic Gabriel, mostly after she kind of gets kicked out on

Vampire, Jane Jameson, is on a whirlwind European vacation with her sire, and lover, Gabriel Nightengale. Things are not quite as romantic as Jane wishes them to be though. Towards the end of the second book, Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men, Gabriel was always off on suspicious business and getting texts from someone named Jeanine. This behavior continues on their vacation, and Gabriel becomes more distant every day. White envelopes keep showing up at every hotel, and Gabriel becomes more distrau ...more
All of the issues between Jane and Gabriel finally come to a head when their trip around the world becomes one disaster after another. Someone is sending mysterious notes to each stop along the way, no matter how often they change locations. The problem is that he tries to act like nothing is wrong and won't show the notes to Jane. She gets fed up with it and heads home realizing that their relationship is probably over. Luckily she has her book store's opening and the upcoming birth of Zeb's tw ...more

I really enjoyed this one! Lots of revelations and lots of Dick Cheney time :)
Dick has to be one of the best sidekicks in the history of fiction lol. And of course I caught myself laughing and snickering right along with Jane. These books are the best when you want a funny, light but very entertaining read. Amanda Roccini really makes these books though. I don't know if I'd love them as much if I were reading them vs listening. Can't wait to see what's in store for Jane and company in the ne

I love this series, I can't get enough. So funny, witty, exciting and a little mystery. The chareters come to life for me. Jane is so fun, and I love the book store. I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times. Great Book!!
Molly Harper’s debut ‘Jane Jameson’ was, without a doubt, my favorite new series of 2009. I love these books, and I have a serious fictional girl-crush on protagonist Jane Jameson. The third (and possibly last) book in the series, ‘Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever’ definitely delivers and maintains Harper’s winning-streak.

Molly Harper’s writing is quick, zany and completely infectious. The closest comparison I can think of is to dearly departed television series ‘Gilmore Girls’. Jane’s mouth runs a

I've been wanting to read something fun and that is what attracted me to the Jane Jameson series. However, one of my biggest problems in any book is main characters who 'allow' themselves to be victim or victimized. This is starting to be a trend with this series and it is truly getting on my last nerve!

Jane and Gabriel are on a world wind vacation across Europe. However, no sooner than they arrive at their first stop, Gabriel begins acting strangely: leaving the room to take phone calls, receiv

The Series in ONE Sentence: Fun and Hilarious from beginning to end!

I love a nice funny book, specially one with paranormal elements and Molly Harper’s Jena Jameson series definitely gives us that and more. The Jane Jameson series is one of my favorite series ever and finding out that there will be a fourth book made my year!

Jane Jameson’s story is reminiscent of Mary Janice Davidson’s Queen Betsy, where

4.5 stars

This series has yet to disappoint! In Nice Girls Don't Live Forever, Jane has to solve the mystery that has Gabriel acting really strange on their supposed romantic trip around the world while dealing with Zeb & a very pregnant Jolene & reopening her shop.

There was less of Zeb in this one, but since they're both growing up & maturing in their relationships it's understood - Jolene, Andrea, & Jane make a very cute girlsome in this book. Dick turns out to be the brother Ja
I swear this is my new favorite comfort series.

This is the third book in the Jane Jameson series and so far, the best. Jane has settled down somewhat into her new role as Vampire/Business Owner/Trouble Magnet, and has come to terms with her life. The only thing she's still unsure of is her relationship with Gabriel.

This part of the series is the only thing that consistently keeps me from rating these books as 5's. I don't particularly like Gabriel, who employs lies and half truths in a misguid
Really a 3.5, but not quite a 4 for me. I liked this one much better than book 2. I felt like Jane was getting totally walked all over in book 2, as was every one else she knew, and it really frustrated me. I was concerned for a while in this one, but things got much better. Gabriel is still a pretty big wuss in this one. A good-looking wuss, but spineless nevertheless. He's so wrapped up in whatever his secret is that the doesn't even tell Jane that she's in danger. Maybe he thought he could ha ...more

I have to admit, I loved this one, even though my annoyance level was high through most of the book. But that wasn’t Jane’s fault! Please allow me to explain… When book 2 ended, we found our intrepid vampire heroine, Jane, being offered a romantic overseas getaway with her vampire beloved, Gabriel. However, as we start book 3, we soon realize that the trip is going terribly, especially since Gabriel seems to be dashing off
Review posted: Happily Ever After - Reads

We when last left Jane, she was in the process of traveling for the first time in her life. With Gabriel by her side, and a ton of money in the bank, NICE GIRLS DON’T LIVE FOREVER opens with the happy couple, not so happy at all. Gabriel is still receiving weird messages and leaving Jane all alone while he’s off doing who knows what and he won’t tell Jane what’s going on. They’re in a hotel room overseas, fighting and Jane storms out and heads back home.

A trip to heartbreak hotel.

This was definitely one of the stronger instalments to the series. Lots of lovely drama, as well as all the usual funny scenarios and witty banter that come part and parcel with everyone's favourite vamp next door, Jane Jameson.

You might recall Gabriel—Jane's sire and on/off boyfriend with complications—was acting mighty peculiar during the last book. Lots of visits out of town, lots of evading direct questions.... Jane, being

I started reading this book last night and then kept on reading until I was finished with it. I found myself completely sucked in once again.

Things aren't all good in Jane's world even though she's traveling the world with Gariel. He's being cryptic, off-putting and out of the picture.

I love the way Jane handles things after things implode with Gabriel. She really is a great female character. She's "human" in so many ways.

Zeb and Jolene were just too funny and I always love checking in on the

The fact that this book mentioned something about a ham not being gender specific made this book by far the best of the trilogy.

I'm really happy with the conclusion and everything worked out perfectly. I love it when everything gets tied up into a nice neat bow.

Jane is one of the best heroine's I've ever read, strong, funny and a little bit unsure of herself. She was the perfect mix of everything and she made me "bust a gut" to say the least.

When Jane's bookstore is robbed, she returns from a less than stellar vacation with her now ex-boyfriend Gabriel, and tries to regroup her store and her life. She has a lot to keep her busy. Her best friend, Jeb and his were wife are expecting, uh, cubs. Her friend Andrea is getting really serious with vampire, Dick Cheney. And Jane has joined the strangest chamber of commerce ever.

Really", I snorted. "I mean, who wants reminders of a natural disaster, literally of biblical portions, on their baby's walls? What are you supposed to say, 'Oh, drowning sinners, isn't that precious?”
“Not to be rude, but it was all pointless," I noted from across the room. Four eyes narrowed at me. "What? I said 'not to be rude'. That's like saying 'God bless them' right after you say bad things about someone. It means it doesn't count!” 60 likes
