Publisher's Summary

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.

Good start to a new series.

This story wasn’t as funny as Half-Moon Hollow, but I enjoyed the story. Molly Harper knows how to entertain, without making the story so complex. It’s a light read with some chuckles along the way.
This story featured Maureen “Mo” Duvall-Weinsten moving to Alaska after her fiancé dumped her for no real reason. She wanted a freash start and just picked Alaska to get away from her ex and her hippy parents. She begins working at a saloon and since she is in small town named Grundy, all the local bachelors come sniffing around. Cooper Graham is a local who can’t seem to stop coming around Mo, but he keeps saying things to convey his dislike of “non-locals”. Cooper was like the kindergarten boy who likes a girl, so he pulls her hair, pushes her down and just picks on her. Mo hates that she is attracted to the one man who is mean to her, but then keeps kissing her. To top off, she finds out he is werewolf. What’s a girl to do?

I tried reading this book twice, but couldn’t get into. So I tried the audio and narrator Amanda Ronconi brought it to life. She has great voices and she just entertained me the entire book. I think I will keep going with this series, but on audio.

One more time!!! Another GREAT book!!

Molly Harper is a wonderful writer with a sense of humor that is by far the best around!! I learned while listening to her first book, you can't be drinking anything while listening. I made that mistake and spewed soda out of my nose! I have all for books and can't wait for what she will come up with next. Her characters are "real" and full of life. I hope she continues with these characters as well as Jane and crew. I love how she worked Jane's book store into the book. Molly Harper can't write fast enough for me. If you want to laugh and have a great time, read Molly Harper's work!!

Couldn't stop listening

Molly Harper, YOU ROCK!!! I have listened to each of her books numerous times, and LOVE each of them. I was afraid to start another series, because I just knew it could not be as good as the first. WRONG-O!

I LOVED this book! I laughed so hard at the Baby Beluga story, my husband hushed me! He will never understand.

Thank you, Molly, for giving a nod to our friends back in the Hollow, and I hope we have not heard our last out of Jane!

I know there is another book coming out very soon, and my finger is on the BUY button! As with all of Molly's books, I was let down when it was over, because I knew it would be some time before I could get another one. Excellent guilty pleasure book!!!

Preternaturally Funny

Courtesy of Lost Art Audio

All of Molly Harper’s audiobooks, including this one, are narrated by Amanda Roncini. Her voice is perfect for the part. It’s light, slightly scratchy, not particularly accented – faintly tinted with something vaguely Southern. Amanda Roncini does a great snarky voice for a snarky Mo, and she’s able to pull off the punch lines just right.

What sets Molly Harper’s writing apart from the typical urban fantasy/paranormal romance novel is her uniquely comedic voice. If you’re familiar with her Jane Jameson series, this will come as no surprise. If you’re not, don’t drink anything while listening to this audiobook. Consider yourself warned. Naked Werewolf relies mostly on hyperbole and absurd juxtaposition. Mo’s parents aren’t just aging hippies – they own an organic vegan farm. Mo’s mom refused to go to her college graduation because it would be giving into the man. Mo’s mom once walked in on Mo and a guy getting it on, and instead of walking out, she started lecturing the couple on the positives of tantric sex. Mo’s mom isn’t just overbearing, she calls Mo up at 3 a.m. every year on Mo’s birthday to re-tell the story of her water birth in graphic detail. Something Mo’s college roommates really appreciated. If you’re an avid listener in the genre, you’re used to audiobooks that start out with a bang, hook you in the action, keep you guessing, and take all-together a very short amount of time. Not so with Naked Werewolf. If you read the blurb summary from audible or amazon, you’ll know the foreshadowed pivotal event is Mo “find[ing] a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on [her] porch.” That scene comes 3 hours into the 9 hour book (about a 1/3 of the way, for those of you who can’t do fractions). Naked Werewolf spans over a full, entire year. It doesn’t take away from the action because, frankly, there’s not a lot of action.

This was a re-listen for me. I love all things Molly Harper/Amanda Ronconi and this series is a favorite. I love how strong Mo is, she moved to Alaska where she knew no one and she found her place right away. Cooper tried hard to be the jerk but he just isn't. The chemistry between them was great. I love the humor and sarcasm throughout this book. This book leaves me smiling every time I finish it!

Amanda Ronconi is seriously perfect for the sarcastic funny characters in this book. No one else will ever do for a Molly Harper book!

Quirky, Flirty and Fun

Mo is a girl after my own heart. She is strong and determined. She has moved to Alaska to make a break from a broken engagement and her very hippy and controlling parents. She didn’t plan to work right away but somehow steps right into working as a short order cook at the local gathering diner.

Mo is attracted to the sulky, quite guy in the place, Cooper, even though he makes it clear he doesn’t think she’ll make it past the first winter. Since Cooper wants to remain sullen and stand-offish, Mo goes out with Park Ranger, Alan, who is a really nice guy but doesn’t give her shivers like Cooper. As Mo puts it ‘Cooper was caramel triple chocolate cheesecake deep fired on a stick. Alan was angel food cake, sweet and wholesome and nothing you’d regret.’

Mo suspects there is something really different about Cooper and then she learns it for sure when he shows up on her porch naked with a bear trap around his ankle. Cooper takes Mo home to meet his pack when he is summoned because his grandfather is so ill. The pack is at odds because Cooper is the Alpha but he is running from the responsibility. His sister is furious with him and attacks him whenever they are near each other.

There is trouble in town because several people have been injured or killed by a wolf. Mo is sure that Cooper is not the wolf who is attacking people but he isn’t sure of himself so again he backs away from her rather than risk hurting her.

I really enjoyed the push, pull of the romance between Cooper and Mo with the added tension of conflict from Alan’s interest in Mo. The author gives good development of the characters and interesting wolf-pack dynamic as a family struggling under traditional rules. There is plenty of fun dialog and phrasing that had me chuckling out loud. This isn’t fast paced action but it moves along well with a good mix of romance and mystery.

The narrator did a really nice job of catching the quirkiness of the characters and I would enjoy more from both the author and the narrator. I recommend this if you want a light fun read or listen.

Southern Charm meets Northern Exposure.

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.

Cute and funny story with some mystery

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.

A MUST HAVE

This was my very first Molly Harper book and I am now addicted to her writings. She has put intense emotions in her books and GREAT humor! I was laughing, crying and begging for more. Will buy all of her stuff I can find.
