Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson’s sexy sire, Gabriel, has always been unpredictable. But the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane ...more

Oh no! A vampire break-up? Vampires are angsty enough without the break-up drama, so this was gunna be gud!

"I hope all your books keep you warm at night!" he yelled, stomping toward the door.

"Hey, you're room temperature at best, buddy. You never kept me that warm to begin with!" I shouted back.

Sing it, sister!!

Jane is awesome in this one as she deals with Gabriel being an ass. She doesn't get all clingy, she doesn't go into a deep depression, she doesn't try to win him back. Nope. She stand

Completely loving the Jane Jameson series set in Half Moon Hollow. As this starts out, Jane and Gabriel are off in Europe for some much-needed alone time, but Gabriel, who has been mysteriously disappearing for weeks at a time over the course of the last two books, begins receiving strange letters at every hotel they arrive in. So once again he pulls his vanishing act and won’t tell Jane the truth about what’s going on.

I rather enjoy the push/pull between Jane and Gabriel. Jane doesn’t take any

Another very good installment from Molly Harper's "Nice Girls Don't..." series. An intelligent and witty book about vampires, ghouls, werewolves, ghosts and maybe even witches. Never thought I'd be describing a book about vampires as intelligent and witty. ...more

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

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

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
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
Another fun Friday night spent with Jane Jameson. I’m glad I left a few months between #2 and this installment—Jane is best enjoyed in small doses. Especially as this book tips the scales much further towards paranormal romance than to regular urban fantasy.

I do love the sass and the snark that Molly Harper channels for Jane. And Jane needs them desperately in book 3 as she deals with relationship issues, both her vampire sire/boyfriend, Gabriel and her sister. Not to mention that her best frien

The third book in the Jane Jameson series features Jane tackling both relationship and business issues. The book still has the characteristic humor of the series, the chapter – heading quotes from A fictional vampire dating advice guide are a nice touch when paired with what happens in each individual chapter, but the plot here is a bit convoluted. Gabriel and Jane break up explosively and Jane heads back to half moon hollow to lick her wounds and run her newly reopened book shop. The r

Barely made 3 stars.

I dislike Gabriel & dislike his relationship with Jane. Especially the part wherein Jane doesn't seem to actually like Gabriel; the sex they have is angry sex; Gabriel keeps forcing himself onto Jane and makes classic rapists comments like: “You can lie to me, Jane, but your body can’t. I can feel how much you’ve missed me, how much you want me right now.”(said as he's pounding his fingers into her outside, in public, her bookstore. And said while licking his fingers. She has

This is the third book in the Jane Jameson series and Jane has settled down somewhat into her new role as Vampire and Business Owner. The only thing she's still unsure of - is her relationship with Gabriel who continues to be secretive and aloof at times.

Jane and Gabriel decide to take a multi-country European vacation, unfortunately things aren’t going as planned. Every country they arrive in, upon checking into their hotels Gabriel has mysterious notes waiting for him upon

She travels back to Half-Moon Hollow where she vents her sob-story on her motley crew of friends.

Another funny installment in this series! All of the characters just keep getting better and the main mystery/danger of this book was something I didn't expect.

I'm glad that Jane is re-connecting with her family and the whole drama with Gabriel wraps up in the second half. I would probably never be able to date someone who couldn't trust me but she does demand future trust so hopefully that happens for her. I was however proud she didn't spend too much time moping over him.

I really love reading

Love all the characters in this series.... Jane is awesome and I love her relationships with all her friends Andrea, Dick, Zeb, and Janene.... liked the fact that her family came around in this book especially mom and sister.... some of the best parts of these books were when Jane was at The chamber of commerce meetings with all the Courtneys.....

I really didn't like this book all that much. Jane is funny but she is also kind of stupid. Gabriel's big secret, the one that almost ruined his relationship because he refused to tell Jane, was ridiculous. He said he didn't want to tell her because he was protecting her and he was embarrassed and thats complete bullshit. I HATED Gabriel in this book. I know I'm in the minority because I have read a few reviews and everyone seems to love him and I'm over here like.. wtf is wrong with people.

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

This does prove it. I can still do pnr, but, only funny pnr. I have said it before with the Sand books, and it is true.

It was 4 years since I read the last book (I know!), but I could easily jump in even though it is about the same character. I just started reading, I did not remember a thing, and it did not matter.

Instead I learned that Jane is a vamp (well I did remember that), everyone knows about vamps now (still lots of tension). She has a hunky BF called Gabriel (the one who turned her). S

Jane's adventures continue and this time she's having trouble in her relationship with Gabriel. He has been keeping secrets and refusing to answer her questions, and what was supposed to be a fun trip for them around Europe, ends with them more or less broken up.

Jane returns home and puts all her energy into getting her shop up and running, and supporting her best friend while he freaks out about impending fatherhood, when she starts receiving threatening letters from a stalker who wants her to

*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

This is going to seem weird, but these books now remind me of Penrod - short stories about small town life wrapped up in a larger book. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed reading it, it was a fun little read, but like many series destined to be practically endless they lose somewhat of a sense of urgency ya know? Still, this series is clever, fun and worth a read! Watch my video review ...more

I hate, loathe, viciously despise with the fire of a thousand suns BS relationship drama. I also harbor a lifelong aversion to babies and won’t want to hear about pregnancy. So, naturally, the author of one of my favorite series decided to slather one of her books with both. Thankfully, the novel climaxed with a suggestion of HEA, but I really didn’t enjoy the journey.

Three books in and I'm really enjoying Molly Harper's vampire series. It's a good helping of comedy with touches of romance tied up in a mystery package. Also there are side dishes of awesome supporting characters that are just as funny as the main character. I've been in a reading funk lately and Molly Harper's books have been the perfect remedy. Looking forward to the next book. Highly recommended ...more

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

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
