GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper

Description

Northern Exposure Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham—who has been openly critical of Mo’s ability to adapt to life in Alaska—has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.
For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it’s love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he’s worried that he might be the violent canine in question.
If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he’s not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated. . . .

MY THOUGHTS
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

Molly Harper has done it again and created some memorable characters, added a bunch of snarky fun and made me wish I was in Alaska, even though I have only been in snow three or four times and not really a fan.
This was such a fun read and perfect for anyone looking for something to keep them warm during the cold winter months.  Did I mention Molly has two dachshunds?  For that reason alone, you should buy all of  her books. 


The heroine of the tale, Mo is a strong and likable character  and when she moves to get away from her family and lands in a town that has a large single male population, so much the better!  She gets noticed right away by ALL the men, but one catches her eye that can be best described as cantankerous.  Cooper is such a dog, literally in the canine family. I was really glad to see them get together and there are some nice romantic scenes worked in there as well.  There are quite a few twists and turns in the plotline.


I read this one straight through and there was enough action to keep the pages turning.  This of course is the first in a new series and I can't wait for the next one which will be released next month.  If you really want to see how clever this book is, just check out some of the chapter titles:
Drinking the KoolAid
Bears:  Not as Friendly as the Honey Packaging Would Have You Believe
Moroseville, Population: Me

I am laughing just rereading those!

I received this book at no expense from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Glad to hear this is such a great kick off to a new series. I always enjoy an Alaska setting--being from MN, many descriptions are close to the mark for our winters too! Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

  2. I got a kick out of Molly's story on her blog about a supposedly everyday interaction at Panera. I thought that kind of weird stuff only happened to me!

  3. Oh, love the chapter headings too! A couple friends and I had a whole email discussion about that very thing not too long ago. Next to first sentences, good chapter names are the best!

    Molly is a sweetheart. She's funny and we have something in common.

    We both hate clowns.
