Truly.....by the time I read this book it had been in my library for a few months so I'd forgotten the reviews. I thought it was a first book by this author until I came back to the page and saw other reviews. I found it slow and a bit boring.......the dialogue felt forced. It will be tough for me to give this author another chance.
I'm a PhD theatre student who loves not proofreading my reviews (sorry) because I have to do enough of that in school. :)
Molly Harper is climbing steadily up my favorite authors list, as is narrator Amanda Ronconi. It just goes to show that if you have a like-minded individual read your work in the way it was meant to be read, it does wonders for the listening audience.
I will admit I was shy about getting this book even after reading and the "Nice Girls" books but I had such a good time with Harper's snarky prose that I dove in head first, despite the main character being named Mo. Ronconi's northern accent was 'a hoot' and made the book exciting.
Gotta say also that Cooper far surpasses Gabriel in the romantic lead department - and has much more depth as a character. I even liked the nod to the previously written novels.
My favorite moment in this book involves buying in bulk and the reaction it elicits. 5 star credit-worthy read
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
I'm a regular, i tend to see and read about many books here at audible.com... i kept on seeing this book, and i knew it was a best seller at audible, but for some weird reason i didn't even stop to read its summary.... i just red it the day before i wrote the review, and i loved it.. it was funny, it was engaging and i couldn't stop listening to it...
This is the first time i listen to a Molly Harper book, and i can see/hear/read her talent and why she is a good author.
What i like about this book that werewolves are big deal, but the main character doesn't really give a damn about that.. you get plenty of jokes and its ending was very good.
Basically its damn good, damn funny, and you get to like these characters.
Already bought the 2nd book, reading it right now.. and will pre order the 3rd one soon.
Molly Harper's "How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf" will keep you laughing. She has a wicked sense of humor. Also, all of the characters in this book are well-developed with flaws and nuances. I highly recommend this for anyone who is looking for a different, fun take on a love story.
workingmomof2. Lots of driving time = many Audio books
Light reading/listening that will make you laugh and do a few spit takes with your morning coffee. The writing is fast paced, quirky and just a fun little fling through Mo's relationship in Alaska with a guy, who just happens to be a werewolf. So? Yes, there are some explicit passages in the story, 30 something women have physical relationships, duh. So mom's don't think it's appropriate for your pre teen young daughter, that surely isn't Molly Harper's target audience - so get your daughter some Twightlight books or Judy Blume and read this one yourself.
Amanda Ronconi does a pretty darned good job with the narration, almost like listening to your friend retell what happened last weekend over a huge 30oz pomagranite martini and some chocolate cheesecake. She is probably the best narrator for Molly Harper's style.
It's a fun read. It made me chuckle in the mornings on my way to work.
I spin my own wool and knit. Listening to audiobooks while I craft is one of my favorite things. I'm hooked.
If you're looking for a contemporary paranormal romance with a comedic twist, look no further. The female lead in this book was likeable, her love interest was very very interesting, and the dynamic between them was perfect. Molly Harper not only created fantastic lead characters, but also fleshed out her side characters. Anyone who has ever lived in a small town or community will instantly connect with some of the locals. The story had it all. There was mystery, passion, family drama, paranormal doings, everlasting love and lots and lots of irreverent humor.
It's hard to narrate humor. It's all about timing and inflection, but Amanda Ronconi rose to the task and delivered a fantastic performance.
I'm a relationship coach (QueenBeesCoaching), survived raising my children and have a loving relationship. Life is good!
Every so often I like a light hearted and fun romance with a dash of paranormal tossed in. Molly Harper has a way with words and humor that keeps me engaged and laughing out loud. Literally.
I'd bought and listened to Molly's 'Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs' series, then after this went on to the 'How to Seduce a Naked Werewolf'.
Yes, the books follow the 'typical' romantic novel, but I was guessing up until the end who the bad guy was. I actually liked that I kind of knew where the book would end up at. The ride to that ending was far more fun that I'd expected, although I shouldn't have been surprised after listening to the other audiobooks.
Sadly, I've now listened to ALL of her books on audiobook, and I'm so very sad that she hasn't written more yet. Molly, will you PLEASE get a move on and write faster? Like 24 hours a day? I'm anxiously waiting to see what delight you write next. :)
For this series I absolutely LOVE Amanda Ronconi's voice and interpretation of the female leads. Quite often the way she says something .. that certain inflection in her voice, was enough to set me to laughing. I'm so impressed with the way this audiobook was produced.
I highly recommend all of Molly Harpers books for the simple fun of them. They're delightful and helped me to speed through my chores, as I keep listening while cleaning the kitchen, folding laundry, etc. I will be listening to them again soon I'm sure!
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
This is just the perfect paranormal romantic comedy. Molly Harper writes a super funny story about falling in love with a werewolf and Ms. Ronconi does a flawless narration! A great story and perfect narration make an audiobook that you can listen to over and over again. I have all of Ms. Harper's audiobooks and fortunately they are all narrated by the same wonderful narrator. This was a credit very well spent!
Fantasy and Romance Author
An appealing, snarkily hilarious heroine (a Southern belle from Mississippi, raised in a vegan commune by hippie parents and now rebelling against her upbringing), an Alaskan town filled with quirky and delightful characters, and a grumpy but sexy werewolf hero made this the perfect book to listen to on a long drive to and from Los Angeles. The narration was excellent, and the story was just plain fun. I just used a couple of saved credits to download the sequel to this book, and look forward to livening up my commute to work for the next week or so with more tales of Grundy, Alaska...
Was my first experience with Molly Harper, and not my last. This book is so witty and cleaver, keeps a smile on your face. Actually has some suspense, mystery, sibling rivalry, and crazy situations to make the story complete. Have downloaded the next in the series, and am enjoying it just as much.
