Audiobook Review: The Undead In My Bed: Anthology by Jessica Sims, Molly Harper, Katie MacAlister

In "Shades of Gray" by Katie MacAlister, Noelle is a Guardian: a demon-wrangler, imp-banisher, and all-round secret protector of humans from the Otherworld. While working on the set of a ghost-busting reality show in a haunted castle, she meets a sexy vampire, and together they prevent a Master Demon from killing everyone in the castle.
In "Undead Sublet" by Molly Harper, executive chef Tess Maitland is banned from her five-star kitchen in Chicago to recover from "exhaustion". Choosing a random rental house in Half-Moon Hollow to spend time in, she's unaware that the house comes with a strange man. Even though Sam Masden's ex-wife has rented the house out from under him, the divorce settlement allows him access to it for another ninety days. With Tess unable to go anywhere else, and Sam unwilling, a war of epic proportions is declared - and romantic sparks and heavy pots fly.
Jessica Sims's "Out With a Fang" features Ruby Sommers, a lonely were-jaguar who signs up for a blind date through the paranormal dating agency Midnight Liaisons. When she arrives, she finds out that her date, a vampire, was the human she'd been in love with four years ago but was forced to dump.


Shades of Gray by Katie MacAlister
I’m not sure this novella was for me. I ended up giving up on the audiobook because of the juvenile way Noelle came off.
Rating: DNF
Undead Sublet by Molly Harper
When Tess Maitland beings laughing at jokes the produce made, she is forced to take a sabbatical from her five-star restaurant. Deciding to rent a house in Half-Moon Hollow she soon discovers that the owner of the house hasn’t been as forthcoming about the house when she discovers Sam Masden, the woman’s undead husband is living in the basement.  
Although Sam and Tess have declared war on each other, there is no denying that there is more between Sam and Tess than they want to admit.
I loved this novella. Like Harper’s other Half-Moon Hollow residents, Tess and Sam were simply amazing. Their chemistry was undeniable and I could not get enough of their crazy pranks and banter.
Rating: 4.5 Cups
Out With a Fang by Ruby Sommers
When were-jaguar Ruby Sommers is set up on a blind date through Midnight Liaisons, a paranormal dating service, her vampire date has one rule: Ruby must be blindfolded. When she discovers the mysterious vamp is the human she’s loved, things get interesting.
Another strong and steady story from Jessica Sims. While it was way too short, it gives a nice sense of who the characters are.
Rating: 4 Cups
