Even in Grundy, Alaska, its 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, its 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, hes 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 hes 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 to be honest...it was the title that caught my attention. It said to me "this could be a really cute story" and, for once, the title didn't let me down. I loved Molly Harper's dry, sarcastic sense of humor. Made me laugh out loud more than a few times. Even though it was based on fantasy, the story wasn't completely "out there", it was almost believable! I could actually put my feet in Mo's shoes and could imagine how she felt, could imagine being her. The mystery had me going until the end. I was wondering too, who could it be? The only problem I had was with the narration. I didn't mind Amanda Ronconi when she was just reading or speaking the female voices and she did ok with some of the male voices...it was her narration of Cooper's voice I didn't care for. To me, Cooper was a big brawny guy that should have had a deep comanding masculin and sexy voice. What I was hearing made me picture a short little whimpy guy that was maybe 120 lbs dripping wet...but that's just my opinion.
I bought this one because I am a huge fan of the vampire books. I found myself wondering whether this was suppose to be a quirky modern take on relationships or a bodice ripper (and I hate that term) in disguise. If I had wanted to buy a romance novel I would have. Okay, I get it. Werewolves are hot and sexy, but geez, this volume read like a porn film. I am NOT a prude in any way shape or form, but after the scene in the front seat of the car I found myself annoyed. If she could have toned that down, brought in more of the local characters it would have been a winner. I love LOVE LOVED the characters and wanted to hear more about them, not just grunting and thrusting.
Paranormal-urban fantasy book lover!
Yes yes and heck yes.
It is funny and entertaining. Ronconi does a perfect job of narrating the different characters!
Attitude, spice, spunk. The perfect narrator for this book.
I was laughing through the entire book.
Once I listened to Harper's "Nice Girls" series, I immediately bought all of Harper's books from audible and am very glad I did. I have listened to all the books several times now.
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.
Say something about yourself!
Loved this series. this books is full of excitement, great sex, romance and mystery. The Narrator Amanda Ronconi has a great voice and does great charactors. if you are ever looking for a good book just look up amanda ronconi.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
maybe...it is a very cute book..
Mo...she is a true Molly Harper MC she is snarky, and funny...and just a tad sexy....
Mo....it was a very good and super fun narration...
I giggled quite a bit in this book...it was very clever and fun to read...
I like Molly Harper quite a bit, and this was a super cute and fun read....I will be reading book 2 soon!
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
A great, funny book about a 29 year old girl, (Moe), who runs all the way to Alaska to get away from her overbearing, hippy mother. The quaint town that she settles in is as cozy as a warm coat and the town folk characters are a perfect mix.
Shortly after her arrival she starts a steamy, love affair with the local, handsome werewolf, (Cooper). Things get complicated very quickly after several brutal wolf attacks, and instantly the quiet, little town of Grundy goes on high alert. When the locals launch an investigation into the bizarre mystery, members of Coopers pack start showing up which only adds more ripples to this who done it.
This a good, witty story that never lags. The narrator does a great job and helped to make this a fun, light read that kept me laughing and interested throughout.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
I really adore Molly Harper. The wit and humor of this book, combined with the real life scenarios that come about that aren't polished, or sweet, like when she drops a line that says "When a naked werewolf comes to your door with a bear trap on his leg...it really is just best to do what he says."..you want to laugh out loud, and smile!
That is why I read Molly Harper books...when the vampires and demons and love angst get too much I drop out of my normal reading for a good old fashion laugh out loud book that leaves you feeling warm and happy.
Thank you Ms. Harper, I will be reading EVERYTHING of yours!

Don't know, didn't read the print version. The audio is very funny.
Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich... due to the sarcastic humor or maybe Sookie Stackhouse.. but much more light hearted than some of those.
I simply enjoyed this story. It was very lighthearted and funny. I adored the southern colloquialisms. They had me laughing out loud. My laughter only increased when learning about Mo’s parents (Boy, Can I relate!). This is not to take the place of the story, which was very good and kept me listening. This was a purchase I certainly will not regret.
