Northern ExposureEven 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. . . .
I have mixed emotions about this book, it seems everyone else has liked it a lot and I just felt unmoved by it , I like it but didn’t love it, I waited a few days to see if my opinion change, but I still feel the same way, I guess I’m more of a hard core paranormal, urban fantasy reader/ listener, I like the world in my books the be build up a little more than what the author did in this book, I like more sexual tension between the protagonists and I like the heroine in the book to act and to sound her age, unfortunately Mo (the main character in the book) sounded to me a little immature to be 30 years old. How to flirt with a Naked Werewolf isn’t packed with action or suspense but is more character based with its share of family drama and werewolf politics. This is the first novel in Molly Harper's new series, and it was a cute, humorous story of a Southern girl who moves to Alaska and discovers an attractive but surly local is the werewolf of her dreams. Written in first person narration, Mo is a likable heroine with a good sense of humor, I liked her even though I’ve mentioned before I found her a little immature, but I gladly overlooked those times for the enjoyment I got out all the great one liners (very funny ones, I can’t wait to use them ....:) Who I would recommend this too: Chick-lit and PNR readers who like a lighter listen. But if you are a hard core paranormal romance urban fantasy fan I don’t think this one is for you. In the end I feel, if you don’t take this book too seriously it can be very enjoyable. I should’ve fallowed my own advice. Amanda Ronconi was just perfect for this book, she made Mo’s character come to life with the exact personality the author intended, she made her sound humorous, flirty and sexy, the delivery of all those great one liners was perfectly done with right amount of sarcasm, she gets a c+ on her male voice’s. I wish more books would start using a male an a female narrator, don’t you?
By Dixie Molly Harper, YOU ROCK!!! I have listened to each of her books numerous times, and LOVE each of them. I was afraid to start another series, because I just knew it could not be as good as the first. WRONG-O! I LOVED this book! I laughed so hard at the Baby Beluga story, my husband hushed me! He will never understand. Thank you, Molly, for giving a nod to our friends back in the Hollow, and I hope we have not heard our last out of Jane! I know there is another book coming out very soon, and my finger is on the BUY button! As with all of Molly's books, I was let down when it was over, because I knew it would be some time before I could get another one. Excellent guilty pleasure book!!!
By Denise Molly Harper is a wonderful writer with a sense of humor that is by far the best around!! I learned while listening to her first book, you can't be drinking anything while listening. I made that mistake and spewed soda out of my nose! I have all for books and can't wait for what she will come up with next. Her characters are "real" and full of life. I hope she continues with these characters as well as Jane and crew. I love how she worked Jane's book store into the book. Molly Harper can't write fast enough for me. If you want to laugh and have a great time, read Molly Harper's work!!
