Review: How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper (Rating 4 Wine Glasses)

From Goodreads: 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 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, it’s 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. . . .

What I Loved:  This book made me laugh out loud with gusto!  Mo is a delightfully fun leading lady who can roll with punches, cook with pizzazz, and tell you like it is.  She does us southern gals proud and poor Cooper just did not stand a chance.  Cooper is a fantastic alpha-male because he needs Mo no-nonsense approach to everything he feeds up to her.  Any other woman would have walked away from him but something about those two make you know they are right for each other from the beginning.  (NOTE: I would have walked away from him but I am glad she stuck by him if that makes any kind of sense at all).  Evie, Buzz, Alan, and the town of Grundy do a good job of rounding out this cast of very lovable characters.  The love story plays out in a very unique way and was perfectly paced for the two character involved.

What I Liked:  The “who is hurting people” storyline was not obvious and that made it interesting.  I liked that it was more of a way to bring Cooper’s pack into the storyline (can’t wait for book 2 because I think the pack was fantastic with its wide array of characters) than to actually strive to have a murder mystery.  As a plot device for Maggie and Cooper, I think it worked very well.

Complaints:  Not enough Samson–I think he is going to be a fun character through out the whole series.

Why I gave it a 4 and started the Snort Club:  Sometimes books just happen to hit you just right.  They make you laugh when you want too and give you a lead character that you see parts of yourself in (or at least see personality traits you wish you possessed).  This book did all of that for me!  It was funny, endearing, quippy, and just laugh out loud funny at times.  Everyone was very real and down to earth (even the werewolves).  You were just left with a really good feeling when the book ended.

Who I would recommend this too:  Chick-lit and PNR readers who like the lighter fair.  This is a perfect book to squeeze in after an emotionally draining or high action read.  You will be glad you did 🙂

    I so enjoyed this one too, I'm excited for the next one and luckily we don't have too much longer to wait. I think I actually blew snot out my nose when she said "stupid werewolf ninja sperm". It wasn't a pretty sight, but that hilarious statement just caught me off guard!

    Molly Harper has long been on my to-read list. I've heard so many great things about her books! I could use some lighter reading once in awhile, and God knows I love to laugh! Definitely putting this on the TBR list!
