This is just a wonderful read, found myself laughing at the scenerios throughout the book, a different pace for the paranormal reader, thought it was a well written "who done it." So if your looking for something a bit different then the ordinally you will enjoy this one, and I'm looking forward to reading the next of this series.

love the premise and the story - well worth it. I haven't started reading the second book, but liked this one so well I purchased both. Almost makes a girl want to head to Alaska seeking her own wolf to keep her warm during the long winter nights.

This is the first novel of Molly Harper's that I have read and I found it very entertaining and I will be reading some more books by this author. I could tell by the tittle of this book that it was going to be a fun romp. The characters are great. I don't think there is a character, well besides the bad guy that I didn't like. All of them from Main Characters to secondary characters were so alive. Mo is a very spunky and at times you might think a little suicidal (picking fights with werewolf but I liked how she defended Cooper and never backed down either. She even smacked Cooper a couple of times too, she definitely had some nerve. I guess that makes her perfect for dating a werewolf. Cooper, he is sexy and brooding, sometimes I wanted to smack him myself for the way he acted, but he grows on you. Evie, Buzz, Abner, Alan, and the rest of the Grundy gang sweeps you off your feet and you just fall in love with them all. Because of this I have a bone to pick with the author because of what happens to one of my favorite characters, but I shall now say because you must read the book and find out yourself. Molly Harper has a unique way of blending comedy and the paranormal together to make her books just down right fun to read. How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper is one of those books that will make you laugh out loud and elicit a gambit of emotion. The building up of the love connection is artfully done. Ms. Harper also administers a good who-dun-it mystery in with the amalgamation of her book. Plus, she has filled this book with wacky characters and comical, snarky one-liners. This was the most fun I have had reading a book in a long while. Though for those who may not care for sex in their books I must say that this is an adult read.

Only 1/3 of the way thru the book and already would fight if someone tried to take it away. Love the writing style.

Ive read better werewolf books for less $$$. It was enjoyable, but I dont feel the need to rush out to get the sequel. Not terribly original in plot or were-lore.

Fun read, while I wasn't chuckling or laughing out loud it was a fun entertaining read. Worth the read but not a keeper for my permanent library. Witty & fun loving!

Mo Duval-Wenstein drives from Leland, Mississippi to Grundy, Alaska; population of 2,053. She left behind a broken engagement and a concerned mother who has flooded her cell's voice mail with a zillion "call me" messages that she deletes each night without listening to them. She needed to get away so she leased the Meyers' place for a year. Her first person to greet the Lower Forty-eight transplant is Yosemite Sam AKA Nate Gogan the lawyer. Her abode smells of dead fish as the last residents were weekend anglers. At the Blue Glacier Saloon, Mo meets owner Evie DuChamp who tells her as long as they don't offer her meat they are harmless. She also meets Cooper Graham who scoffs at a southerner surviving in Alaska. He conceals from her that from his first sniff he knows who she is to him. Soon afterward, Mo is taken aback when a naked Cooper with an animal trap locked onto his ankle limps onto her porch. He is a werewolf, who fears he is the serial killing wolf murdering people. Mo refuses to believe her alpha life mate is a psychopath even in animal form so he risks her life to prove her assertion. This jocular Alaskan romance places a dysfunctional werewolf pack whose alpha has deserted them and a Mississippi Delta woman into the middle of Northern Exposure. With culture clashes that make Fleischman seem like another Native Alaskan instead of a New Yorker, How To Flirt With A Naked Werewolf is a zany tongue in cheek lampooning of the sub-genre. Filled with sassy southern sensitivities and wacky werewolf wanting, fans will enjoy "Nice Girls Don't" marry dead men with fangs in places like Leland or Half Moon Hollow, but in Alaska tongue out of cheek lycanthropes make better lovers.

A really cute paranormal romance. Not quite as funny as I expected, but it's definitely light and the funny parts are definitely funny. I have not read any other of Ms. Harper's books but I will be sure to pick up the next one in this series, The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf when it comes out next month.The romance is interesting. I like that Cooper is protective of Mo. I think that makes him a great male character but sometimes he seems to take his "alphaness" a little too far. I love Mo. The descriptions of life with her parents are laugh-out-loud funny and you really feel for her and her struggle to become her own person and live a "normal" life. Just when she thinks it's finally working she figures out that Cooper is a werewolf. Nothing too normal about that. I loved how the werewolves were worked in and how she was able to accept him pretty easily (it goes with her background so it doesn't seem unrealistic). The scenes between them can be steamy, but I got a little frustrated at times when he didn't behave like I wanted him to. He could be rather angsty at times, but at other times so sweet. Of course that's what makes it a romance, there has to be a little conflict to make the relationship work in a book.So the characters are interesting and I look forward to meeting some of the other pack members and getting to know them better in future books and maybe getting to know the inhabitants of Grundy a little better as well. I felt the book was mainly focused on the romance and conflict between Mo and Cooper that the town inhabitants were more in the background, but I want to learn more about them and the town. Great characters and good romance equals a fun and light read. I enjoyed reading How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf and will be picking up some of Molly Harper's other books in the near future. She has a good writing style and I want to see it in action in her other books.

Southern born and bred Mo Wenstein needs a change, stat. After a broken engagement - and dealing with her hippie parents on a daily basis she needs some separation and something new. Mo decides Grundy, Alaska is the place for her. She has no idea what awaits her in Alaska, but she definitely wasn't expecting the hotness that is Cooper Graham.How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf was just the story I needed. It was light, sexy and laugh out loud funny. I loved it. This was my first time reading Molly Harper. It was a pleasant surprise, I wasn't expecting to like it has much as I did. I loved her writing voice. I can't wait to check out her other books. Naked Werewolf is a must read.

The Good Stuff * A truly funny, sweet, charming adorable read * Some very naughty bits that had me wishing werewolves were real - however I would be quite pissed for their obvious disregard for expensive lingerie (but hey if he was willing to replace it all, I could get over it) * Love the quirky secondary characters * The sense of community is so nicely written about that I had a sudden urge to move to Grundy , Alaska * Funny as hell that I found myself giggling and snorting out loud on many occasions * The dialog between characters is quirky and reminded me a little of Buffy * Opening paragraph had me hooked and knew right away that this was going to be a book I would love. * Will definitely be looking for more books by Molly Harper * Mo is wonderful character and I loved her sass and her bravery * The conversations between Mo and her Mom are awesome * Great sexual chemistry between Mo and Cooper * Love the flirting between the men of Grundy and MoThe Not so Good Stuff * the forgiveness is way too quick for my taste * Way too many favorite quotes for me to narrow down to just three * The descriptions of the food made me extremely hungryFavorite Quotes/Passages"Abner told me that if I moved into his cabin on the outskirts of town, my feet would always be warm and the toilet seat would always be down. I thanked him for the tempting offer."No, actual meat, It's sort of a tradition in Grundy, a macho provider thing. They want to show you that they can feather your nest, so to speak. It's pretty Neanderthal of them, but sweet at the same time. When a Grundy man offers you a rump roast, it's the equivalent of asking you to go steady.""Maybe its just an overabundance of hormones, a response to a sexual starvation diet. I'd been without for so long that my body was craving the worst possible thing for me. Cooper was a carnal triple chocolate cheesecake , deep-fried on a stick."What I Learned * Werewolves make excellent lovers, with the exception of their lingerie ripping ways * That Alaska sounds like a wonderful place to liveWho should/shouldn't read * For anyone with a sense of humour * Fans of Jennifer Estep, MaryJanice Davidson, Ilona Andrews, Julie Kenner, Marta Acosta, and even Jeaniene Frost will definitely enjoy4.5 Dewey'sI borrowed this from Natasha

The Supernatural Romance genre is not my favorite; however, this book is really pretty good. Clever dialogue is one of its strongest points, and I enjoyed many of the quirky characters.

This book is the first in the Naked Werewolf series, with the second book, How to Seduce a Naked Werewolf, having been released March 29th, 2011. The author Molly Harper is also the author of the Nice Girl's Don't... series. Her books are a mix of romance, science fiction & fantasy and the paranormal. I liked the fact that this book was full of humor and paranormal aspects as the male character is a werewolf. When I read a paranormal story I love that the main female character is a strong and funny personality. The quality of this writing was very good. A story filled with laughs, shapeshifting, sex and a murder mystery. The werewolf storyline was written in a believable way and the writing was not overly descriptive, but gave the reader enough to make it real. There is nothing worse in a novel when the author keeps going on and on about how the werewolf came to be and how it shapeshifts. The setting in Alaska was also perfect for the werewolf theme. Lots of wolves in Alaska so it was the perfect setting. Fans of this genre will love this series. I highly recommend it.

This was a cute book - more paranormal chick lit than paranormal romance. Chick lit is usually more a miss than a hit with me, and that is usually because I find the protagonists very annoying, but I really liked Mo. She never did anything obviously stupid and her humor was very sarcastic.This story was pretty much Mo moving to Alaska and starting her life anew. She quickly develops friendly relationships with the locals and starts working as the cook at a tavern. She falls for a very surly local named Cooper and soon finds out he is a werewolf. Some people start dying of wolf attacks and Cooper thinks the culprit may be his wolf form. Give this book a shot if you are in the mood for something light and fun.

After Mo's fiance breaks off the engagement, she decides she needs a change. She packs up and moves the Grundy, Alaska, escaping her Mississippi roots and overly protective hippie parents. It is pretty drastic, but Mo discovers that she fits right in with the small community. And she finds love. Ant there is just one problem, this love of his life is a werewolf. Yep, there is always a catch.I just love Molly Harper. I am not that crazy about werewolf books in general, but this one was just so funny and touching. I really like Mo and the other folks who live in Grundy. I also found a soft spot for Mo's nutty parents. There was also a touch of wolfy mystery. I am putting the second book on hold at the library right away.

Molly Harper is one of the very few authors who can get me to laugh out loud while reading. This time, she takes us to Grundy Alaska which does bring to mind a paranormal version of the show Northern Exposure. Alas, no John Corbett. There's even a small wink to her Nice Girls series. Can't wait to read how Mo's story continues.

I really enjoyed Molly Harper's first Jane Jameson series, so I was excited to see that she had a new series out. Like the previous series this book was hilarious. The lead character is super snarky, but has a lot of heart. The romance is sweet and sizzling, and the setting is perfect for a winter read. I listened to this book on audio and it was incredibly well done.Mo has just moved to Alaska in an effort to escape her hippie parents, get over a relationship that totally fizzled, and just in general start over. Grundy, Alaska initially appears to be an isolated but charming town. That is until things start going strange. One of Mo's neighbor's Cooper Graham is scornful of her ability to survive the Grundy winter but when he shows up injured (in wolf form) on her porch things get a bit crazy. Then there is this giant wolf that has been killing people. Mo is beginning to wonder if everything is tied together.My first thought when Mo started dealing with her overbearing mother is that Harper must have some mommy issues; because all of her female leads have a horrible time with their mothers. Aside from that I really enjoyed Mo; she is a down to earth, hilarious person, who is sweet and helpful to those around her but has a core of steel and toughness when she has to. Cooper is beyond drool-worthy; he is sexy, wounded, and has that whole dark brooding thing going on. He also has a wicked sense of humor, is intensely loyal, and incredibly intense in his love for Mo. He is pretty much one of the better male leads I have read about this year.The chemistry Cooper and Mo have is amazing; I was sucked into their relationship and really rooting for things to work out between them.I loved the small town of Grundy; Harper describes the benefits and drawbacks to living in a small town perfectly. This was an excellent winter read because most of the story takes place in the winter and over Christmas. Watching Mo adjust to extremely cold weather was hilarious, since she is from the deep south. As a Minnesotan I could relate to some of her cold weather problems and got a good chuckle out of it.I did find Mo's quick acceptance of Cooper's werewolfiness to be a bit strange. Mo attributes it to her open-minded hippie flower child upbringing. To be fair she does question her easy acceptance a number of times, but initially she is just like "huh, so you're a werewolf, okay". The town of Grundy is full of a number of quirky and wonderful secondary characters. All of them were well-done, very real, and fun to read about. The mystery of the mysterious deaths was also well done and I loved the way everything was wrapped up.I will also say that as much as I enjoy Harper's books they are the type of book I can only take in small quantities. For example reading this one book was a lot of fun, but I wouldn't want to read three books in a row like this. They are a bit too fluffy and chick-lit for that. Still the book was hilarious, incredibly well done, and a fun light diversion.Overall I really enjoyed this book a lot. It was a fun and hilarious romp. Mo is a perfect character; she is snarky, witty, yet still caring and a bit tough. Cooper was a wonderful male lead he has a dark sense of humor, is sexy as hell, and intense in his love for Mo. The chemistry between the two was sweet and a joy to read about. I loved the town of Grundy, Alaska and because of the wintry setting this book made an especially wonderful winter read. I am excited to read the next book in Harper's Naked Werewolf series called, The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf. I highly recommend this series to fans of humorous paranormal romance. If you enjoyed Harper's Jane Jameson series, this book was ever better than that.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! I bought this audiobook because I liked the narrator and Molly Harper’s humor in her books. I got this whole series in audiobook. This is the 1st book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content. I really love audiobooks for when you want a book, but don’t want to read. I love the humor and sarcasm that Molly Harper puts into her stories. The narrator Amanda does a fantastic job bringing out that humor, and she does a great job with different voices for each character. Mo runs away to Alaska to get away from her family which is humorous. I find that she is amazingly brave because I don’t know that I could leave everything I know to head to Alaska. She keeps ending up in interesting situations along the way. Cooper is interesting and conflicted. He was hard to get a read on, but there was something endearing about him though he doesn’t have the confidence in himself he should. The story was awesome, and I couldn’t stop listening. I hope they are both show up in the next book. I highly recommend this book in any form to shifter fans who love humor and sarcasm mixed with adventure. Audiobooks are like TV, but you make your own picture in your head like when you read but less eye straining.

I could kick myself. I bought this audiobook back in 2015. Heck, I bought the whole series and then promptly got distracted by some other shiny book. I have seen so many great reviews for this book but did I start listening. Nope. Because I was distracted. Well, I finally dusted it off and started listening to it earlier this week and had a great time with it. Mo is the focus of this story and I liked her character right away. The book opens with Mo moving to Alaska. It is a big change from what she is used to in Mississippi but she needs a change. And she needs to get away from her over the top parents. Her parents are quite the pair and I can completely understand why she took such a drastic step. Mo quickly becomes a part of the local community by working at the local bar and grill. She is making friends and finding her way. She is even getting the attention of a couple of the local men. Enter Cooper, local werewolf extraordinaire. Cooper always seems a little grouchy but Mo can't seem to stay away. One thing leads to another and they decide to act on their chemistry. There were so many things to love about this book. I really liked the humor woven into the story. I had a big grin on my face the entire time I was listening to this story. I liked Mo and Cooper as a couple and thought they had great chemistry. The story had a lot of things going on besides the romance with a wolf attacking the local community and some drama with Cooper's family. I really enjoyed Amanda Ronconi's narration. I thought she captured Mo's personality very well through her narration. She handled all of the different characters very well and it was always very easy to tell who was speaking. This story has a wide range of emotions and she portrayed them all very well. I felt Mo's fear, her joy, her confusion, and her frustration. She read the story at a very natural pace and I really just felt like she was telling me a story. I was able to listen to this book for hours at a time and look forward to listening to more of her work in the future. I would recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance. This was a fun story filled with great chemistry and a wonderful sense of humor. This is the first book by Molly Harper that I have read and I cannot wait to continue with this series.
