The world waited for a long time for a vampire book series set in the south where vamps live alongside humans and drink synthetic blood. And then the Suzie Stackhouse novels that True Blood is based on came out. Later, Molly Harper wrote this series which is pretty much the same thing.
Jane Jameson is an unemployed Library Sciences major (imagine that!) who gets shot and then turned into a vampire. That's pretty much where the plot ends, on page 30, and the rest of the book is about her discovering her vampire powers, having sex, and pretty much nothing else. Near the end she has to fight a real estate agent to the death. And then it's over.
Despite it's terribly thin plot and well trodden territory, Nice Girls is actually a fun, light read. Jane is funny, the sex is mostly not terrible, and vampires taste like candy which is silly. If we hadn't read what we've read, we'd hate it, but we have so it's fine.
