Book Review: How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper

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.



Boom. I’m giving this an A.

Your jaw just hit the floor, didn’t it? Trust me, you’re not the only one taken aback by that. The last time I enjoyed a full-blown Paranormal Romance this much was…

…wait for it…

…wait for it…

…I need to check my shelves…

…wait for it…

…wait for it…

You still there?

Okay, for those of you still with the living, let’s just say it’s been a while.

This book surprised the hell out of me. Unlike your usual, placid “Either my brain works or my vagina does, for neither can live while the other survives” style of pushover female lead that keeps me away from this genre, we have ourselves a bonafide heroine.

I. Loved. Her.

She was hilarious. Throughout this book. Too many times when I read something that people claim is funny, I find the humor disappears around the halfway mark, when the storyline really starts to heat up. Not so with this. I highlighted every line that made me laugh, just to prove a point. The point is, I highlighted something on almost every goddamn page.

And the romance. THE ROMANCE.

So keep in mind that while this book has a few issues, I was able to COMPLETELY ignore them because of how entertaining it was. And honestly, that speaks volumes. So an A it is.

I regret nothing.
