Northern Exposure. Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s 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 neighbour 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, he’s 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 he’s 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….

Dunno, any character Amanda portrays is amazing in my eyes. American accents i find are a bit irritating to listen to, especially drawling ones. However I will purposely buy any book narrated by Amanda because she is so good.
Laugh, out loud! I have sat at home wetting myself with the antics that unfurl in this book.
The only mistake I made was reading the second book first by accident. I read the Nice Girls series first and moved onto the werewolves ones. Did spoil the ending for me a bit as i anticipated the bad guy because of my stupidity. Still loved it though!
I was after a fluffy non challenging book after having read a few thrillers & action filled books and this was just the ticket.
The was something very strange about this recording, every now and then it sounded as if another person read random sentences or a few words. I can only assume there was a issue after the initial recording and someone else was brought in. Aside from that I really enjoyed the narration.
"Very light hearted"
Should you feel down and rather overwhelmed by daily life, then why not give this a go. It will not change your life or move mountains, but it will brighten up your day. The writing style and story development is typical of Molly Harper, so no surprises there. Having said that I enjoy listening to her books in between heavier reads, to lighten up the mood a bit.
The storyline is as fast moving as a werewolf.
There are so many favourite moments, many made me laugh out loud, the old guy in the bar making Mo better and better offers to move in with him..etc. etc.
I liked Amanda's performance, she gave an overall depth to the characters
I found some moments quite moving, Abner's death, Mo's confusion and sadness when her lover disappears for so long
This is a great book, I have listened to it many times now and enjoy it as much as the first time. I love the characters and the setting. oh and just about everything else. This is not a book for the werewolf fanatic, but it is a book for those who enjoy paranormal romance
"Fun mixture of chick-lit & paranormal"
This is a really fun read! Great characters, bit of mystery, sexy (grumpy) werewolves, all mixed together with a sweet romance!
Amanda Ronconi does a great job bringing the residents of small town Grundy to life with her narration.
"Delightful little romantic fantasy"
Loved it! The choice of narrator was perfect, she did a magnificent job. I thought the first-person character came across very well, with quite believable reactions, comments and inner dialogue. Most of the other main characters were interesting and engaging, and seemed plausible. The only main character who seemed a little thin (to me, anyway) was the romantic match. Entertaining, lively, fun, nice idea and well-executed.
Does exactly what the title says, the standout star being the wee, fat, daschund, Oscar!
I absolutely loved it. The one liners made me laugh out loud and when that happens I know I have enjoyed the book. The sequel is a must and is so funny.
Love it lissoned to the first half in one go! you will love it carnt wait for the other half tonig
very funny and a good plot well worth it.
"The clue should be in the title"
Five chapters in and the story is still scene setting. The story is supposed to be about a naked Werewolf. So far two hours in still no werewolf.
Only listened to one previous book by Molly Harper which encouraged me to get this one. So far story interesting but not about the title.
Like Amanda's voice and she adds to the book.
Not on so far chapters.
Hope the book improves.
"Unnecessary and ridiculous sex scenes"
I was expecting a slightly silly, but enjoyable teenage/young adult book with a slightly ridiculous scifi romance - a guilty pleasure sort of book in the vein of City of Bones or the Hungergames. But this book contains ridiculous sex scenes that are just embarrassing to listen to, esp if you happen to be at work or similar. I didn't think they were necessary and it just made the whole thing into some kind of werewolf porn, could have been cut out and just concentrated on the story.
