I'm an Alaskan. This was very poorly researched. I have trouble listing all the things wrong with this- from small town on the road system including more than one street, and a bank (seriously? A bank?)- to elk (Sitka deer, or much more likely caribou or moose) - to the attitude to new-comers (there's a lot of transition on the road system, you don't exactly need to be here 20 years to be accepted, though we will joke til you finish that first winter). And the stereotypes, oh the stereotypes...yeah, sure, you'll probably in demand for dates as a new person in town, but we DON'T give meat as some kind of courtship gift. Our wolves are kind of scrawny of the standards people used to the Pacific Northwest. Also, running water in a cabin? A lot of the smaller towns don't even have a water system to get into...its well water and outhouses. Wild game is illegal to serve in restaurant in many places in Alaska. I know moose is illegal to serve pretty much everywhere. Grr...also, not enjoying the story that much. The narrator's tone is kind of tedious. I didn't sympathize or have that much in common with the main character. In short, I didn't much enjoy this.
This is my first Molly Harper book, and I loved her sense of humor. There is a good storyline, but the characters are what make this so enjoyable. I also loved the Alaska setting, and the main character's kooky backstory and way of looking at the world. The narrator was wonderful - WHEN she was doing female voices. My one critique is her male characters - they all sounded like 80 year old emphysema patients! Still, worth a listen for sure.
Yes definitely! Good depth in the character building and I loved the voice and sassiness of the main character "Mo" (Moonflower).
It is like the lighter side or a different look at the culture of shape-shifters vs. the Anita Blake Vampire Slayer novels that are more on the dark side.
Love it. What a voice! Her voice embodies a strong, vital, sassy, mouthy, young woman. She's my kind of lady!
Yes it made me laugh!
I went right out and ordered the audio follow-up book "...seducing a Werewolf..."
I would absolutely listen to this again. I love the narrator and the writing is lighthearted and makes me laugh.
I listen to almost anything she narrates.
I would listen to this again. I find this author to be well written and amusing.
I listened to this a while back, but I seem to recall the first encounter with the werewolf in his naked human form.
Yes, but I drew it out some, so that I could prolong my enjoyment.
Not as entertaining as the Half Moon Hallow books, but I will enjoy this series just as much.
Okay. This series is just meh for me. Nothing's really hit it out of the ball park. Didn't really connect with Mo. Didn't really like Cooper. But I'm a HUGE fan of the Harper/Ronconi duo, so I gave it a chance.
This was my first Molly Harper book and I wish I had listened to her books sooner. I have listened to the genre for a while now and while these books are not typically for the genre they are totally awesome.
This book is set is Alaska, where Mo runs to get away from her crazy hippie family and hopefully find herself in the process. Mo is so funny, sarcastic and a little quirky. The whole book is totally hysterical. The other reviewers are correct about drinking while listening to any Molly Harper book. I found myself giggling so many times during the book my husband keep giving me funny looks.
I love all the family dynamics. It is a different take on the werewolf pack and I totally love the the Graham family.
I definitely recommend this series and all of Molly Harper's books.
I'm an audiobook junkie! I listen when I drive, when I clean house, when I run and when I am getting ready for work or ready for bed! <3
It was easy to get into! It was fun and flirty and is for any girl with a wanderlust for moving around and seeing what new locations have to offer!
My favorite part was the bear attack!!
Amanda's performance was fun and she seemed to fit the character in every way! She spoke as if she was the main character with excitement in her voice at the right parts.
I did want to finish this ASAP because I couldn't wait to find out where it was going!
I love audible during boring laundry duty. I seem to be drawn to fantasy most likely to get a break from reality. I love my family!
laugh giggle laugh
the naked parts lol and others but its just a really fun book.
I just truly enjoyed her presentation. So pretty much all of it.
this is a really fun book. I was so glad to see a second book! I wish there were more.
She has a way of telling the truth but with a sense of humor. While it is a story of two people falling in love it isn't the highly romanticized, fluffy version. I'm guessing it's probably pretty close to what it might be like to fall in love with a gruff, brooding, self-hating werewolf if you also had a sense of humor and came from hippie parents.
