Summary

Brandee has been dumped in every way possible, but by text is the last straw. That's it - she's officially done with men. Unfortunately, she's just been told her "soul mate" is the drool-worthy hottie all her friends call One-Night Nick. Nick has been searching for true love for 100 years. After all, werewolves mate for life, and he does not want to mess this up. As soon as he kisses Brandee, he knows she's the one. But how will he convince a woman who knows nothing of paranormals that she's about to be bound to a werewolf forever?

Critic reviews

"Hot sex scenes and a breezy tone with a nice, happily-ever-after ending makes Chase's story - with its interesting cast of humans, werewolves, shape-shifters, witches, wizards, and vampires - a fun listen." ( Booklist)

Not as good as it could have been

Would you try another book written by Ashlyn Chase or narrated by Leah Mallach?

Unlikely

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Monotonous, evenly paced, relentless cheerful. The narrator sounded as if she was smiling all the time, which got a bit tedious

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Thankfully, this storyline would not suit a film without major changes, which might make it rather better

Any additional comments?

Relentlessly sweet, characters laughing, giggling, smiling ALL THE TIME. Lacked any elements of major suspense or drama, and the male character had friends available with convenient powers/abilities whenever he needed them. It read rather more like a selection of linked short stories than a novel.

Horrible story line childish content

What would have made Flirting Under a Full Moon better?

There is nothing interesting about the characters. The female lead with her stupid sayings for cuss words makes you want to smack her with the book. The male lead, so what he's a
Warewolf who cares because the author doesn't care enough to make the plot interesting

What do you think your next listen will be?

Eve of Darkness by Sylvia Day

What didn’t you like about Leah Mallach’s performance?

Not sure that the problem is two fold or if the content was just so bad that there was nothing that she could do.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It has opportunities for a good story but the author never makes anything interesting with the characters.

Any additional comments?

Sorry I wasted my token on this book.

Cheeky and over the top drama

What was most disappointing about Ashlyn Chase’s story?

I'm not sure exactly what I didn't like about the story. Normally this is right up my alley. The love scenes were hot but the story just didn't pull me in. I could have put the book down at any point and not finished it.

I think it lost me when there was a frustrated, grumpy Mother Nature who had a council with the other gods that watched over the paranormals with human spy's. The fact that Mother Nature looks down her nose on everyone just seemed it was trying too hard to create drama. The fact that all this is because she won't have sex because she doesn't know what she will give birth too was just a little unbelievable.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I didn't have an issue with narrator. I'm not honestly sure if it was the story or what about this one. It really looked like it should have been a good story. I'm not sure why it just didn't do it for me.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Any additional comments?

It did have a happy ending. That was the best part of the book. I wish I had liked the book but I don't think I'll pick up anymore in the series. Sorry.

Huh?!

What disappointed you about Flirting Under a Full Moon?

The characters were seriously disappointing. A heroine with lactose intolerance? Mother Nature causing a tornado in Boston out of the blue? Psychotic vampire stalkers? There was so much going on and none of it really made the story any better for having been included.

What could Ashlyn Chase have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The author really needed to have a group of individuals read this and ask for *honest* opinions. Frankly, the dialog was corny although I can see where the author was trying for campy. Reading the entire novel and asking some hard questions during the editing could have saved this book. Logically, the plot had some pretty big holes. Why take Brandee's memories of the kidnapping away when you already know that she is related to the girl who was kidnapped? Duh! Of course auntie is going to mention that Brandee was there at some point in the future! Do we need heroes who are that lacking in forethought? Forced conflict between the hero and heroine shouldn't be that blatant and silly.

Lame

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I do not recommend it for anyone

Has Flirting Under a Full Moon turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator was ok, but the story was just lame, no substance I compare it to a lifetime movie, cheesy and unbelievable!

What character would you cut from Flirting Under a Full Moon?

The writer, give the story to a new writer to re-write. This writer has a long ways to go to reach the level of a Patrica Briggs or a Richelle Mead.

Any additional comments?

I can't believe the price on this book, and that I wasted a credit on it. You need to drop this book to the bargain bin!

<br />Too cheesy

This was a a storyline with a teen sounding adult: "ohmyrubberducky"? nope. With all the positive reviews I expected more, I couldn't even finish it. It would have been an ok storyline except there are gaping holes by chapter 4. It goes from the heroine unsure about the hero, to instant love after he has her memory wipedp and she magically trusts him. I love a good werewolf/supernatural/human combo, but this missed the mark.

Couldn't force myself to finish it

The text was awkward, unnatural, and doesn't flow. Little if any plot. Little differentiation between characters in terms of narration and voices. The constant repetition of "can't let the secret get out, oops I couldn't stop, disbelief" or some variant thereof was infuriating. This was literally the outline of every chapter. I lost count of how many times it repeats. I listen to romance audiobooks purely for the fun and escapism - I'm not terribly picky or snooty when it comes to fiction - and I could only force myself to listen to half of the book before I deleted it.

Too much descriptologging

it's highly unbelievable that every character regardless of being friend or enemy has an innate sense of needing to describe their every motivation ad nauseum. ESPECIALLY when describing their motivations mean detailing a potentially deadly secret about themselves to someone they don't know or trust. it's just bad writing.

the voice over actress was great at reading the material. it's not her fault the material lacked any sort of depth.

Terrible

I couldn’t finish the book because I felt like I was wasting time I couldn’t get back. Seemed like the author had a timeline to finish writing and just threw it together.
