Maggie Graham is Alpha bitch of the werewolves that live by Grundy, Alaska. But when sexy Viking-esque Dr Nick Thatcher comes to town with his devilish nerdity to investigate the possibility of werewolves existing it is up to Maggie to drive him off. But between repeated attempts on her life and her relatives antics it doesn’t quite seem to work out that way…

This is the book equivilant to a packet of Malteasers. Light and fun (have you ever tried that thing where you blow on a Malteaser to try and makes it hover?)you keep going through the bag and the next thing you know you have sucked up your last Malteaser but still keep searching for that one you always miss. That’s what this book felt like, I ambled through it enjoying the humour and all the characters and before a story seemed to have really started the book had finished.

Maggie is in the first book How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf as the main characters, Coopers, annoying little sister. But I really liked her in this book, she is a sarcastic smart arse, my favourite kind of heroine. I liked Nick as well, he was cute! Although I wished we saw more of him, but he and his Star Trek boxset are definitely rocking the gorgeous-geeky section of heroes. I also wish that we saw more of Nick and Maggie together, it didn’t seem as if they ever really had time together, yet they fell in love.

The story in this was a little slow as well and like the previous book I did guess the general gist of what was happening before it was revealed. However, that didn’t stop me from enjoying the book; there was enough humour and interesting characters in it for me to like the book regardless of a weak story.

This was another fun read by Molly Harper. I don’t think this will ever become a favourite series but I would recommend it if you want something light between all the angst!

***
“…the idea that he’s trying to exploit innocent furred people instead of modelling underwear ads- the way God obviously intended- is reason enough to kill him.”

“Yes,” I sighed.

About Molly Harper

When Molly Harper was eight years old, she set up a “writing office” in her parents’ living room, complete with an old manual typewriter and a toy phone. And she (very slowly) pecked out the story of her third-grade class taking a trip around the world and losing a kid in each city. She had a dark sense of humor even then.

When Molly was considerably older, she headed for Western Kentucky University, where she majored in print journalism. After graduation, she landed a job with The Paducah Sun and married her high school sweetheart, David, a local police officer. After six years at the newspaper, Molly took a more family-friendly secretarial position at a local church office.

A big fan of vampire movies and TV shows, she decided to write a vampire romance novel. Molly created Jane Jameson, a bit of an accidental loser. Jane is single, almost 30, and a librarian working in Half-Moon Hollow, Ky. She has become a permanent fixture on her Mama’s prayer list. And despite the fact that she’s pretty good at her job, she just got canned so her boss could replace her with someone who occasionally starts workplace fires. Jane drowns her sorrows at the local faux nostalgia-themed sports bar. On her way home, she’s mistaken for a deer and shot by a drunk hunter. And then she wakes up as a vampire. The three-book Jane Jameson series–which includes Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs,Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men and Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever—was released in 2009. A fourth and final installment, Nice Girls Don’t Bite Their Neighbors, was released in 2012.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

I have not read the first book yet. I love humor especially witty dry humor that seems to fly back in forth in a dialogue.

One of these times; I really must sit down to tackle these stories.

Thanks for posting!

I’ve read both books in this series and think the first one is better. This one is still fun though. Nice review!
