Naked Werewolf (1)
Published February 2011
Mo Weinstein needs time and space away from her eccentric parents. So she decides to travel all the way up to Alaska, in a small town “Grundy” and establish a life there. Mo’s plan is to just relax and take time for herself. Many people in Grundy are apprehensive towards strangers and newcomers. Mo knows that she will have to prove herself. So while in town she makes friends with a woman named Evie. Mo through some unique set of circumstances gets enrolled as a cook for the only bar in town. Even though her plan wasn’t to have a job full time that smelled of grease and burgers, she knew it was what she needed. Then she meets Cooper, whose dislike for her is very clear. But there is something about Cooper that makes him memorable even if he makes her angrier than a hornet. But when Cooper shows up on her doorstep with a bear trap on his ankle, the last thing she wants to do is turn him away. She then learns of his secret, a secret she knows that she can’t breathe a word to anyone about. Before Mo realizes it, Cooper starts to become a vital person in her life, and she knows that despite the recent wolf attacks, she knows in her heart that Cooper is innocent. But will the love she has for Cooper be enough?
How To Flirt With A Naked Werewolf is the first in the series. I recently discovered Molly Harper as a fantastic author. After receiving a ARC of her third book in the series, I was hooked. So I found a good deal on Audible for this story. I was really excited to read the first book. The first book is Cooper’s story. The Audio book is narrated by Amanda Ronconi, and a brilliant job she did. Most times when I am reading a Audio book I let it take some time. But I was so captivated by this story, that I had to listen to it every spare moment I had. So it only took a couple of days to listen to 9 hours. The story starts a bit slow, where you see the background of Mo, and boy did I not envy her childhood. The relationship between Cooper and Mo, isn’t instantaneous, its more gradual until they actually admit how much they desire each other and then things start to really heat up. There is quite a bit happening in this story. There is a bit of a mystery, and in the beginning Mo thinks it may be Cooper involved, but as their connection to each other deepens, she knows it isn’t in his nature to kill or harm, unless he is defending those he loves.
I loved the way their relationship deepens and progresses as the story goes on. There was quite a few moments especially in the Flirty stage they have going on, that just were so hilarious, witty and downright ridiculous its impossible not to laugh hysterically. I loved seeing the drama that plays out between Cooper and Mo, and it was fun seeing his pack, even though he doesn’t have direct involvement, due to past mistakes and misunderstandings. It was really fun getting into this story that was funny, intense, complex, and romantic. Overall a sweet love story with a mix of werewolf shifters, plot full of intrigue, and captivating characters that take your breath away!! SPLENDID!!!
