“Molly Harper writes characters you can’t help but fall in love with” (RT Book Reviews), but how did Andrea and Dick Cheney fall in love? Join Half-Moon Hollow’s favorite couple for a trip down memory lane—to a time when Mr. Wainwright was newly dead, Jane Jameson was a newbie vampire, and a budding paranormal romance was not yet uncorked…
Half-Moon Hollow’s supernatural social event of the season—Zeb’s Titanic-themed werewolf wedding—is coming up, and Dick Cheney (not that Dick Cheney!) needs a date. But Andrea’s had enough of clever, handsome, and rakish to last a lifetime, and Dick Cheney is certainly not the sort of man you bring home to mom (not that Andrea’s deadist parents are speaking to her ever since she dropped out of college and became a blood surrogate.) Shameless, relentless, roguish, with a Stetson-worthy swagger, a naughty sparkle in his eyes, and a constant smirk—oh, and fangs—no, Dick is the last person (er…vampire) Andrea wants to date.
But the infuriatingly irresistible man who lives quietly on the edge of a criminal underworld knows exactly what he wants, and once he surprises Andrea with a thrilling hot and dirty kiss behind the paranormal bookshop, she knows what she wants too: Dick. All it takes to ignite their unconventional courtship is a near-undeath experience that confronts Dick with a choice between turning Andrea, losing her forever, or tapping into his countless shady resources in this hilarious and heartwarming enovella that revisits the early days of Molly Harper’s Nice Girls series—one that “makes me laugh and laugh” (USA TODAY).
I was ecstatic when I found out that Molly Harper was going to have a novella that covered Andrea & Dick’s courtship. I wanted to see what happened to make them a couple. We don’t see much of the transition in the Jane Jamison series, and Fangs for the Memories gives us that small little tidbit.
I love how feisty Andrea is with Dick. He can be an jerk at times, but he really is a big softie. His pretty much has a hero complex when it comes to people he cares about.
Their interaction after her incident as a blood surrogate is absolutely adorable. I love how twisted they can be with revenge. It’s pretty dang funny. It was also good to see Zeb’s wedding from another perspective. Just wow.
I love Andrea and Dick. They definitely bring some comedy to the books, and Dick’s shirts are awesome. Seriously, they should be sold!
If you are a fan of the series, you should definitely pick this one up. Fangs for the Memories is a quick read and full of laughter.
