There is such a hilarious combination of elements in this paranormal romance that one can’t help giggling maniacally while trying to keep from having whiplash as circumstances shift rapidly around Gigi. The slightly tongue-in-cheek tips about working around vampires at the beginning of almost every chapter, give a slightly skewed view of Gigi’s job, even as the contrast between geekdom and the dangers of possibly fatal mistakes remind one that this is not just any IT job. Office politics has never been so cutthroat as this, and the addition of witches, curses, ages-old vampires, girlfriend jealousy, overprotective sister, and a sizzling hot hunk who gives new meaning to bipolarity, makes this a fun and entertaining read that combines snark and action with a very strong sprinkling of sensuality. There are plenty of intriguing characters and enough fodder for plenty of other stories, and, even though I was not familiar with the series, I had no trouble reading this as a stand-alone story. I look forward to reading more stories in this entertaining world and hope to get other glimpses of the primary characters to see how things are working out for them!
“The Dangers of Dating a Rebound Vampire” by Molly Harper is part of the ‘Half-Moon Hollow’ series and centers around the complicated life of Gladiola Grace Scanlon (Gigi) as she starts her new job as a programmer for vampires. Despite the fact that her sister Iris is a vampire, or perhaps because of it, Gigi has been relatively sheltered, so it is even more puzzling that she has developed a chilling relationship with a very contrary male named Nik. Their literal love-hate relationship plus the pressures to succeed at her new job make Gigi’s life complicated, but that may not be a concern for long if she doesn’t find a way to gain control over the things spinning out of control.
In the next book in Molly Harper’s beloved Half Moon Hollow paranormal romance series, Gigi starts her first job (at Vampire Headquarters), gets over her first love, and may even fall for her first vampire!
Gigi is no longer an innocent teen. All grown up and looking for love, her family and friends worry she’ll go for the sexy, alluring vampire instead of a nice, safe human. But sexy and alluring, with a penchant for biting, could be just what Gigi wants...
