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 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
I am dyslexic! If it wasn't audible I would not even be able to know what's in a book. I found out I love books.
But this wasn't the best series I've heard. She's really good author and she can always make you laugh.
I do not write novels. So it's hard for me to say.
I guess so I don't really know
The moment where you say will she so stupid why can't you see that didn't see that coming that's what I hate about books what that.
What would I do without audio books?!!
I've tried a few of the the vampire/werewolf stories - Sookie, Kitty, etc. I really want to like these but I just don't get the whole genre I guess. I know many people enjoy these so I'll focus on what is unique about Molly Harper's How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf. The story was decent, and I like the whole Alaska angle. But the "southern sassy" routine the main charater did so often got kind of annoying and seemed forced. Even though I wanted to like this, don't think I'll read the next in the series.
I have not seen the written story.
I enjoyed her character variations.
The story had a great ending, yes I got a little misty.
Couldn't wait to load the sequel.
couldn't stop listening.
the first frost dance, then after.
needed to listen to next book. finished both twice.
I put it up there with my favorites. The story is flirty,funny and romantic. Its a great strory to listen to as you work in the yard , clean house, or crafts.
Well, paranormal and sci-fi adventures are kind of new subject matter for me. Considering I've been reading romance and who dun its since I was 12 yrs old I've only been reading this genre for 2 or 3 yrs. It has me hook line and sinker. I enjoy reading about things that are impossible but, the magic happens when an author makes it seem perfectly reasonable that it could happen. Thats what Molly Harper does in each and every book. My favorite character was Mo and her silly antics at the restaurant she worked at.
As I said she has such a sense of humor and perfect timing with said humor that I've found myself laughing out loud at her hero's and heroines. Her since of romance is wonderful. None of that I love him this minute I hate him the next...uuughhh. Her characters tend to build a relationship to the boiling point and the WHAM....your boiling right along at a nice simmer too! lol.....I loved the scene when he was waiting for her in wolf form and ended up naked in front of the fire place.....
I LOVE this narrator. The was she is able to change the tone,accent, and mood of the characters had me looking for anything else she has narrated before. She is wonder I strongly suggest giving her a try.It would be very easy to listen to this in one day.
If you like a range of paranormal romance this book will be right up your ally. Its not a heavy duty Sci-fi like Game of Thrones. It's just a wonderful read that you will want to listen to again and keep up with what every Molly Harper has coming out next. Set back and enjoy ;).
I am a 40ish woman with more interests than time but some of my favorite things are books, audio books and e-books. I have over 325 audio titles and have already listened to about 2/3rds of them. I drive over 25000 miles a year and my listening keeps me sane on the road.
The sly humor that was captured by Amanda Ronconi perfectly! You hear every ounce of sarcasm and wit with perfect clarity.
The excellent delivery of some delicious snark combined with interesting and entertaining characters. The plot is set at a good pace and the author does not hesitate to add drama and mess with characters you care about.
Its hard to name just one. Any conversation Mo has with Cooper or Evie is a winner but I also love the scene when Mo meets Maggie!
What happens when a desperate to get away from home southern belle moves to Alaska and encounters the world of the supernatural all in one shot! Funny and Charming with a great plot!
The humorous dialogue set it apart from the rest of werewolf paranormal romance.
Both the main and secondary characters were so well done and performed that i cannot pick one.
Was pleasantly surprised and impressed with how well she performed all the voices.
HELL YES!! When he comes marching out of the words and directly into her arms. Melt Much..
I will admit the cover turned me off. I thought it was too juvenille. I kept going back to it and it was really the good reviews that won me over so I took and chance and I am very glad I did.
I really enjoyed this book. Romantic comedy with a twist of science fiction. The book and the reader's delivery had me laughing out loud.
loved it totally fun listen, her attempts at gruff male voice was feeble otherwise very enjoyable.
