Liked It: Where The Wild Things Bite by Molly Harper

Series: Half-Moon Hollow 5
Format: ARC
Release Date: July 26, 2016 
Publisher: Pocket Books
Source: Publisher
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Delivering a rare book to a valued customer is definitely part of mild-mannered archivist Anna Winthrop's job description. You know what isn't? Protecting her precious cargo from mid-flight theft by the very pilot who is flying her to Half-Moon Hollow...while trying to appear as unappetizing as possible to the only other passenger, a vampire. Undead bookstore owner Jane Jameson could be waiting a very long time for her book. Possibly forever.

Fortunately, Anna's dashing fanged companion Finn Palmeroy helps her fend off the attack, but not before their plane crash lands in the forest hundreds of miles from civilization. Great, now she's stranded with a priceless tome and a rakish vampire whose bedtime is fast approaching. Why does everyone want this book so badly, anyway? Anna just wants to get it to Jane before Finn decides to turn her into dinner-or sweep her off her feet. Okay, the second option is really tempting. But they're not out of the woods yet...

I am a fan of Molly Harper's Half-Moon Hollow, a series set in Kentucky featuring vampires. It's sexy, comedic, and at times satirical in its portrayal of blood-suckers. WHERE THE WILD THINGS BITE is the fifth installment and takes us away on a wild adventure from surviving a plane crash to escaping the clutches of a rouge shape-shifting community.

The main plot of WHERE THE WILD THINGS BITE concerns this old book that holds secrets concerning supernatural creatures and shape-shifters in particular. Anna Winthrop, our hot librarian and very human heroine, is currently en route to delivering to book to Half-Moon Hollow when she got attacked, causing the plane to crash. As luck would have it, sexy vampire Finn Palmroy is with Anna when shit hit the fan and saved Anna from the claws of her aggressor. But is Finn Anna's savior or is he setting her up for something else?

You can say that WHERE THE WILD THINGS BITE is a paranormal romantic suspense comedy. Anna and Finn's a la Survivor adventure in the forest is quite thrilling, Finn's suspicious nature added to the suspense, and as expected, Molly Harper's signature humorous banter provided more than one comedic break in an otherwise serious or even dangerous situation. It also goes without saying that the romance between Anna and Finn developed in the silliest and sexiest way so romance lovers, you'll still get your dose of swoon here.

WHERE THE WILD THINGS BITE, though can be read as standalone as the rest of the other books in the series, moves the world of Half-Moon Hollow where shape-shifters are becoming more prominent and it's supernatural aspect expanding. As far as this series is concerned, only Vampires are "out" while the rest of the paranormal world is still in the shadows. I wouldn't be surprised if shifters get more page time in the coming installments and in turn expanding the preternatural world set in Kentucky.

I had a good time with WHERE THE WILD THINGS BITE, it's one of those comfort-read that you can cuddle up with and devour in a day or less.

*I started the series at book 3*

  1. I plan to read some Molly Harper within the next couple months. I wasn't overly impressed with the one book I did read, so I want another go at her work.

  2. Oh that sounds good. I haven't read this series but I do love vampires.

  3. Molly Harper has me laughing all through this series. The stories are serious yet you can't help but laugh at the characters and the way things play out!

  4. This is a series I need to get back to. I listened to book 1 and enjoyed it even if I was on a vacation with hubs and he wanted to talk every time I went to listen! Ugh! *haha* I'm happy you liked this installment.

  5. I'm always up for some laughs. This is on my wish list. I do love that cover too!

  6. Sounds like fun and I love some laughs with my romance...and some supernatural spices it up.

  7. Thanks for the review Braine, I've got one of her books in my pile, I can't quite remember the name but something about hauntings. I don't know if its part of this series either. Ah so many authors so little time :) LOL

  8. I need to try another one of these. I read the first one and it was just okay for me. I really enjoyed her Naked Werewolf series, and I am totally about comfort reading so I think I should give this one a go since I can read them out of order.

  9. I need to binge read this series :D

  10. Fun humorous paranormal suspense stories are hard to find. I still need to read my first Molly Harper.

  11. Harper's books are always cute and fun

  12. I've always wanted to read her books. Sorry this wasn't as great as the other ones you've read from her, though.

  13. I have this one and thought about just diving in but now I am

  14. I was never a fan of shapeshifters... never thought transforming into an animal was SEXY lol :P

  15. I just love this series. It will always pick up my mood. Molly Harper's humor is a favorite of mine. I just decided to relisten to the Naked Werewolf series. :-D Glad you enjoyed this one.

  16. I have yet to try her books, I hear they are really fun reads :)

  17. I'm horribly behind in her books. Maybe for Christmas I'll binge read :D

  18. I like the romantic suspense part, which sounds waaay cool, but I have maxed out lately on any type of vamp book. (lol) I still need to get to the pile of JR Ward novels, which hints at how far behind I am. (lol) Loved the review and hope things are going well for you! Hugs...
