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 was a little curious when this book showed up in my "We Thought You Might Like" list on audible, but I was intrigued by the title, so I bought it. Trust me, it's well worth the money (or the Credit!) This was one of the most beautifully described books I ever listened to. Molly Harper certainly has a way with imagery - Grundy, Alaska is painted so beautifully you'd almost swear you were there! And you couldn't ask for a better narrator than Amanda Ronconi. All in all, this is one of my favorite new books this year. Molly Harper is certainly in my favorite author list now!
This audiobook is in my list of top three all-time favorites (next to The Help by Kathryn Stockett and Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redeption by Laura Hillenbrand).
I had never --nor ever wished to-- read a book about werewolves, and the title of the book dissuaded me from even looking at the reviews for days, but once I finally read the great feedback that listeners left, I decided to give it a try.
I had never read anything by Molly Harper nor heard anything narrated by Amanda Roncini, but I will hunt out both from this point forward for their highly entertaining and engaging story telling.
My husband, who rarely listens to audiobooks, was as enthralled with this story and its vivid characters as I was. We've been talking about it all weekend and are looking forward to more works by Molly Harper. Our ONLY complaint is that the story wasn't longer... we were sad when it ended! Sigh... that's the mark of a good book, I guess.
You'll be very glad you bought it.
I liked the idea of this book. The title was fun. The book was predictable and didn't have much build up. I wish I didn't spend my money on this title.
I have listened to all of Molly Harper’s books and loved them all. I read And One Last Thing and it was good but the audio version was much better. Molly Harper’s style of writing is great she writes snarky funny people that you can relate to. I feel like I know Mo (and Jane from the Nice Girls books). Amanda Ronconi is the perfect narrator for Molly Harper’s books she really has the snarky slightly southern (without being insulting, i'm from Tennessee) down. I cannot wait for the end of March when the second Naked Werewolf book releases. I hope Molly Harper continues to write these great books (both Naked Werewolf and Nice Girls, plus anything else she wants to toss at us) and I hope Amanda Ronconi keeps narrating them.
I cannot get enough of Molly Harper. I enjoyed her Jane Jameson series and I'm loving her Werewolf series. I cannot stop listening. Amanda Ronconi does an excellent job with the characters. Can't wait until the next installment!
I'll read anything- books, magazines, food jars, the dictionary...
I like Moe as much as Jane- and that's saying something. Keep writing, Molly! Amanda Ronconi is the perfect "voice" for this book, her range is awesome.
humor, food and Alaska
It was fun. I am a big werewolf fan. So I have give any book that has werewolf in it a try. This one was a pleasant surprise. Molly Harper writing is very funny and I love her characters. I also love the bit of mystery in there to.
Sara A :)
Harper is amazing at making uncomfortable situations hysterical. I am still laughing. I wish there were more to the series.
I haven't read the print version but Amanda Ronconi is one of my favorite narrators, and definately doesn't disappoint here.
Definately the comedy!
I love the way she handles emotions and she never sounds like she's reading from a script. Her male characters are bit weak, but it's forgivable because you get lost in the way she tells the story.
