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:
Romances was always great fun reads for me and when I discovered Paranormal Romances, I was thrilled. I could not get enough. I just loved a happily ever after. In the last few years, my reading preferences have begun to shift and I have begun enjoying stories that have a bit more to the bones but a love story is still a huge attraction.

Going through some personal problems in the last few months, I just wanted a little fluff. I needed some over-the-top sweetness and two people making googly eyes at each other with none of the crime solving that I usually adore. And this is what I got with How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf.

There is no pretense of any snippet of reality in this story and I loved it. 

Grundy, Alaska is the ultimate small town with no evil person in sight (except for the bad guy which you meet far into the book off course). The characters are all super sweet and likeable and Mo, our heroine is the best – loved her! 

She survived living with hippy parents that was not above breaking into her home to throw away her fast food and replacing it with organic foods.  Werewolves did not even make her blink.   

Off course, Cooper is drool-worthy even if he can't resist his wolf traits.  He is not above peeing on the porch to mark his territory :)

How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf  is a fun bit of fantasy that will leave you smiling.

  1. I think I have a Molly Harper audio on my shelf but haven't listened to it yet. These sound like they will be perfect escapism for me, and will have to try soon. Thanks for stopping by my blog, A Prairie Girl Reads, and I look forward to stopping by to check out more of your reviews.
