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. . . .
How to Flirt with A Naked Werewolf was a sexy romance filled with quirky characters, and laugh-out-loud moments. Set in a small Alaskan town, this was sort of like Northern Exposure with werewolves. Loved it!
Twenty-nine year old Mo Duvall-Wenstein (I won’t tell you what Mo is short for, but it is funny) moves to Grundy, Alaska to get away from her crazy, hippy parents, Ash and Saffron. Seriously, if these two were my parents, I’d run for the hills, too! So she moves up there to figure out what she wants to do with her life without their influence. Mo doesn’t expect to get a job but she ends up in the right place at the right time and becomes the cook for the local hangout, The Blue Glacier Saloon, making friends and gaining admirers along the way.
Something about the way these men approached me made me think I was being evaluated as breeding stock.
However, I think my potential suitors were thinking more along the lines of: Breasts (Check.) Pulse? (Optional, but check.)
This is where she meets Cooper, a gorgeous mountain man who organizes and guides parties through the Alaskan wilderness. He’s less than sweet to newcomers, because most don’t last through one winter, and in his opinion Mo will be just like the rest. Cooper is immediately rude to her, so you know as a reader these two are meant to be. Let the sparks fly! However, what you see with Cooper is not all you get, something that Mo is about to find out. When attacks and disappearances rock this little sleepy town, Mo wonders who is responsible and who will be next.
This was such a fun, quirky story. I loved the odd characters: Evie, and Buzz, the saloon owners, and all the regular patrons were hilarious! With her outgoing and friendly personality, Mo quickly makes friends and fits in with this bunch. Being away from her parents is the best thing for her, and she finds Grundy is a place she truly belongs, man or no man. Cooper is just the icing on the cake (I wouldn’t mind a piece, thank you!). Sweet, sexy, and a little pushy, but that’s a little inherent with his type *ahem, cough, werewolf*! There was some definite steam in this story!
