Mo Wenstein has decided to start over and just about as far away from her family as she can get. To say her parents have taken over her life might just be a little bit like saying billboards are subtle. So she moved in the middle of the night and only tells her best friend. She decides that Grundy, Alaska will be the last place her parents would look and heads out. One thing she definitely doesn’t count on finding in the north is a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his leg on her front porch. Especially, if it is a guy that seems to make her girly parts quiver, but seems to only grunt in her directions. When the same man (Cooper Graham) turns into a wolf, she decides that she might not be the only one in Alaska running from things, or trying to figure out how to fit in.
Unfortunately, while Cooper and Mo are learning more about each other there are suddenly unexplained apparent wolf attacks around town. Cooper is concerned they might be him, as he has no memory during his wolf times but, Mo is convinced it couldn’t be him. Will she be able to convince Cooper that he is a better man (or wolf) than he even thinks of himself? And will the two of them be able to work out their differences before one of them becomes the target of the killer?
Molly Harper is one of my favorite new authors and this is the book that started it all for me. How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf is one of the most entertaining shifter books I have read in a while. I love how Ms. Harper makes her heroines real and spunky. Some might even call them a bit snarky which I also enjoy reading. Not only does Ms. Harper come up with an interesting Alaskan town but you are also brought to the deep south, at least briefly through Mo’s memories. I loved the interaction between Mo and most all of the characters that she runs up against, especially as she starts to take over cooking at the bar and fit in with the locals. The highest praise that I can give a book is to Joyfully Recommend it, which is what I am doing with How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf.
