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'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.

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.
There are just great moments of the characters being typical people... Things that make me relate and connect to the story.
Can't put my finger on it. It's just very well done.
A great twist of her voice for the various emotions, especially irony, and slightly acidic emotions (self-doubt, internal dialogue, etc.)
I LOVED this book. It had me laughing so hard in places that I my husband didn't know what was happening to me. Such a fresh take on the whole experience of the supernatural, with wit and humor, as well as lusty scenes intermixed, that I was taken aback when I hadn't heard this author previously. I encountered the book by looking at the narrator's list of narrations since I really enjoyed another book she read for, so I will say that the narration is great, too. Since this book, I have read other Molly Harper books and have not been disappointed! Such fun! I recommend this book whole-heartedly!
I really enjoyed this book. It kept me entertained the whole listen and didn't drag at all. I was fully engaged and wanted to keep listening even when I arrived at my destination. That's how I know I like an audible book.
This book is very funny, and well written. Amanda Ronconi also did a great job she has the perfect voice for that book. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.
I love books, it's my great escape.
I took a chance on this author and I really enjoy this story. I will puchase more from her and the narrator did an excellent job too.
I enjoyed it. The weakness was plot development.
The first half was the most fun. I was chuckling and smiling several times. The quirky humor worked for me. But the second half was less original. It was typical romance plotting and not well developed.
Mo guessed Cooper was a werewolf too quickly and without reason. She didn’t see him shift or anything unusual. She saw a wolf and thought his eyes were similar to Cooper’s eyes. That was a stretch. She went from normalcy to accepting the existence of paranormals. Sure the wolf attacked a bad guy, but dogs do that.
The separations and bad guy parts were ok, but not good enough to make it a good story. For example at the end, the bad guy does a tell-all just before he plans to kill a good guy.
I prefer not to read first person, but this was better than I expected due to humor.
There were four sex scenes. The first one was fun and hot. He shredded her clothes. They were in his way. The other sex scenes were brief, not much detail. This has less sex than most romance these days.
I did not like the narrator Amanda Ronconi doing men. She used a weird, whispering, soft voice which did not work for me. It was not sexy or masculine. I’ve heard other female narrators do men better. The narrator’s interpretations were good for humor, but her voice for the heroine was a bit irritating. She had a pleasing voice for Gracie, Cooper’s mom.
Genre: humorous contemporary paranormal romance
