Favorite Quote: “See, I’m not such a bad guy.”.
I snickered. “Well, you’re not a good guy.”
“Is this because I have my hand on your boob?” he asked.
I yawned widely, noting that he did not, in fact, move his hand from my left breast. “That, too.”
We all know how Jane Jameson and Gabriel Nightingale’s romance came about (and what a ride that was) but how did Andrea and Dick Cheney (no, not THAT Dick Cheney) meet and fall in love? Fangs For The Memories revisits the Nice Girls series and takes us down memory lane to show us how one of the series most interesting and fun couples- Andrea and Dick- starting dating.
Andrea doesn’t dislike vampires but after losing her self-esteem, respect, and parents because she dated one, she is wary of them. Now living in Half Moon Hollow and working as a human happy meal for clients, Andrea is rebuilding her life one job at a time and she has no time for the sexy Dick Cheney, a vampire who seems to enjoy walking on the seedier side of life. When a client of hers goes a little too far on a feeding and Andrea is left near dead, Dick swoops in to save her life and Andrea sees a different side of him-one she likes very, very much.
Most fans of Molly Harper’s Jane Jameson and Half Moon Hollow series have a soft spot for the irresistible pervy vampire-Dick Cheney. This short but sweet and funny novella picks up right when Jane’s beloved boss, Mr. Wainwright, has passed away and everyone is getting ready for Zeb and Jolene’s redneck Titanic themed wedding. Plenty of sass, snark, and cuddling follows Andrea as she resists Dick at all turns until he lays a huge hard wet kiss on her outside the book shop then shows up when she is in dire straits. In saving her life and learning he was ready to go all supervillain on her ex-boyfriend has Andrea seeing a new side to Dick-one that appeals to her bruised heart. This little niblet ends with them on a date and Dick showing his uber romantic side.
This should probably go without saying, Andrea, but I like you. So much. It feels silly to put it like that, but I know I don’t love you yet. I don’t know you well enough to be able to say that and have you believe me. But I could love you so easily. And I want you to love me, too.
I only had one issue which was I wish it had been longer. I wanted more dates and time spent together.
