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.

Couldn't finish it.

Take the sex scenes out and this book would fit perfectly with the young adult audience. Nothing wrong with YA genre - some great titles in that genre - but in this book, I found the attempt at light hearted humor and raunchy sex too incongruous. Also, no tension between the main characters. As with most novels that bore me, I ended up not caring about the characters. So, I turned it off. Hope this helps...

Howly romance in Alaska

Molly Harper is climbing steadily up my favorite authors list, as is narrator Amanda Ronconi. It just goes to show that if you have a like-minded individual read your work in the way it was meant to be read, it does wonders for the listening audience.

I will admit I was shy about getting this book even after reading and the "Nice Girls" books but I had such a good time with Harper's snarky prose that I dove in head first, despite the main character being named Mo. Ronconi's northern accent was 'a hoot' and made the book exciting.

Gotta say also that Cooper far surpasses Gabriel in the romantic lead department - and has much more depth as a character. I even liked the nod to the previously written novels.

My favorite moment in this book involves buying in bulk and the reaction it elicits. 5 star credit-worthy read

Beginning of another fun series

STORY (fantasy romance) - This series promises to be just as clever and cute as Molly's Half-Moon Hollow series, though the males will be werewolves instead of vampires. In this story, Mo moves to Alaska to escape her overprotective parents, gets a job cooking in a diner and meets sexy werewolf Cooper. Mo becomes involved with small-town life and, of course, Cooper. As the story progresses, she and others in Grundy, Alaska search for a wolf who has been killing tourists and townspeople. Could it be Cooper?

You will love this book -- the romance, the snarky banter between characters and the mystery element. Molly is the undisputed queen of this genre.

PERFORMANCE - Amanda Ronconi, as always, is the perfect pair for Molly's style of writing.

OVERALL - This is Book 1 of the series, but the story stands alone perfectly. There are a couple short sex scenes and a little cursing, but this is definitely a light, fun, easy listen. Highly recommended.

Had A Great Time Listening To It!!!!!

I'm a regular, i tend to see and read about many books here at audible.com... i kept on seeing this book, and i knew it was a best seller at audible, but for some weird reason i didn't even stop to read its summary.... i just red it the day before i wrote the review, and i loved it.. it was funny, it was engaging and i couldn't stop listening to it...

This is the first time i listen to a Molly Harper book, and i can see/hear/read her talent and why she is a good author.

What i like about this book that werewolves are big deal, but the main character doesn't really give a damn about that.. you get plenty of jokes and its ending was very good.

Basically its damn good, damn funny, and you get to like these characters.

Already bought the 2nd book, reading it right now.. and will pre order the 3rd one soon.

Funny......., Aahooo!

A great, funny book about a 29 year old girl, (Moe), who runs all the way to Alaska to get away from her overbearing, hippy mother.  The quaint town that she settles in is as cozy as a warm coat and the town folk characters are a perfect mix.

Shortly after her arrival she starts a steamy, love affair with the local, handsome werewolf, (Cooper). Things get complicated very quickly after several brutal wolf attacks, and instantly the quiet, little town of Grundy goes on high alert. When the locals launch an investigation into the bizarre mystery, members of Coopers pack start showing up which only adds more ripples to this who done it.

This a good, witty story that never lags.  The narrator does a great job and helped to make this a fun, light read that kept me laughing and interested throughout.

Maybe It's Me...

Any additional comments?

I got this book after reading all the good reviews. Everyone raved that this book was "hilarious" - well, maybe it's me, but I think "hilarious" is a bit of a stretch. The book has its funny moments, but it’s not the laugh-out-loud comedy I was expecting. <br/><br/>This is a fun, cute story about a girl running away from her overbearing parents to the Alaskan wilderness where she meets Cooper, who is a werewolf. While the story is meant to be light and fun (which it is), I felt that the author rushed the love story. There is no real build up of feelings between the two characters. Although a lot of time passes in the story I felt that the reader doesn't get to be a part of the romance - we are pretty much told what happened and must go on faith that these two characters have the kind of love required to meet the demands of the relationship. It's pretty much, they meet, they don't like each other in that "we really do like each other, but we are not going to be the first to admit it" way - they are attracted to each other - they have sex - then they all of a sudden love each other. (!?!) I found myself asking, "when did this happen?"<br/><br/>She does this with almost every plot point. The Alaskan winter that everyone is warning Mo about in the beginning - where we will get to see if she can really stick out - is also pushed under the rug. Winter is mentioned in passing and we do not really get a good glimpse into the everyday life of the characters. <br/><br/>I just wish this book were about 100 pages longer to flush out these great plot points. So for this I give it 3 stars. It’s not a complete waste of time, and the narrator does a good job with the voice acting. The book is a good beach read, but for those who like to see relationships spring to life, grow and bloom - you will be disappointed. <br/>

Hilariously Romantic

Molly Harper's "How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf" will keep you laughing. She has a wicked sense of humor. Also, all of the characters in this book are well-developed with flaws and nuances. I highly recommend this for anyone who is looking for a different, fun take on a love story.

Wry, entertaining, a bit of a fluffy fling

Light reading/listening that will make you laugh and do a few spit takes with your morning coffee. The writing is fast paced, quirky and just a fun little fling through Mo's relationship in Alaska with a guy, who just happens to be a werewolf. So? Yes, there are some explicit passages in the story, 30 something women have physical relationships, duh. So mom's don't think it's appropriate for your pre teen young daughter, that surely isn't Molly Harper's target audience - so get your daughter some Twightlight books or Judy Blume and read this one yourself.

Amanda Ronconi does a pretty darned good job with the narration, almost like listening to your friend retell what happened last weekend over a huge 30oz pomagranite martini and some chocolate cheesecake. She is probably the best narrator for Molly Harper's style.

It's a fun read. It made me chuckle in the mornings on my way to work.

Spot on!

If you're looking for a contemporary paranormal romance with a comedic twist, look no further. The female lead in this book was likeable, her love interest was very very interesting, and the dynamic between them was perfect. Molly Harper not only created fantastic lead characters, but also fleshed out her side characters. Anyone who has ever lived in a small town or community will instantly connect with some of the locals. The story had it all. There was mystery, passion, family drama, paranormal doings, everlasting love and lots and lots of irreverent humor.

It's hard to narrate humor. It's all about timing and inflection, but Amanda Ronconi rose to the task and delivered a fantastic performance.
