How To Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper-a review
HOW TO FLIRT WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF (Naked Werewolf #1) by Molly Harper
HOW TO FLIRT WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF is the first storyline in Molly Harper’s Naked Werewolf series. Set in Gundy Alaska, the story focuses on Mo Wenstein, the daughter of two hippies still stuck in the mindset of the Haight-Ashbury era.
Mo needs to leave Mississippi, get away from her smothering parents and start a new life as far away as possible. And heading to Gundy Alaska seemed liked the right move. Finding a place to live was easy- a secluded cabin in the woods- and landing a job that basically drops into her lap-even easier. But finding a wolf with blue-green eyes eating an elk in her backyard was a little disconcerting. It was as though the wolf was looking right into her soul.
Cooper Graham is a werewolf. As the alpha of his pack Cooper left under uneasy circumstances, leaving Eli in charge. Hoping one day to return, Cooper takes up residence in Gundy, where he is neither friendly nor outgoing. But seeing the beautiful new comer at the local saloon has called up all of Cooper’s alpha male instincts-and his wolf wanted its’ mate.
Mo is the new girl in town who has caught the attention of every available male, but there is one male who seems to hold a definite grudge. When a large wolf comes to Mo’s aid during an attempted robbery, Mo recognizes the eyes, but it is not until a very injured and naked Cooper falls onto her front step does Mo know for sure.
A very large wolf has been attacking the local residents, but when 2 young tourists go missing, the hunt begins for a rogue wolf. Mo is concerned that the attacks may have been werewolf related and possibly by Cooper himself. But as their relationship grows, Mo realizes that the man she is falling in love with, could not be the wolf destroying the lives of the people she now calls her friends. But when Cooper is called back home, he must face his family and his pack.
Cooper is a reluctant alpha. He believes himself unworthy and has left his friend Eli in charge. But as the attacks increase, so does Cooper’s concern. Believing himself capable of killing, Cooper leaves town without a word, knowing he has abandoned his mate in the process. But it is not until his mother reaches out, does Cooper know where his heart belongs. Only now, his mate may be the next victim in a power struggle for pack control.
HOW TO FLIRT WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF is an easy read and a lighthearted look at life in small town Alaska except there are a few supernatural critters. Picture Joe Manganiello as Cooper and all your worries will fly. Molly writes with humor and smart one-liners that will have you laughing along with the storyline. Her characters are your basic home-spun people trying to survive the harsh winters and cold nights. The story is enjoyable, a fun read with a little romance on the side.
