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 like 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 worries 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 suppose to do anyways? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated……
WOW! I LOVED this book! This has to be one of the funniest books that I have read this year, and I could not help but to laugh as I read it. If you are in a bad mood or have a bit of the blues, this book will improve your mood with its sassy wit and comical characters. Everything worked so perfectly in this book and left me itching to read the second one.
The characters were remarkable, and I found that I loved reading Mo; she was just so witty and fun to read that I could not wait to see what she was going to say next. Then there is the werewolf, Cooper who although he was very gruff he was a fun read as well, and enjoyed watching his story play out. Next, we have the locals of Grundy who are so interesting that you could devote an entire book just to them and then there is the drama with Cooper’s pack that adds tension and intrigue. Oh, and I cannot leave out Mo’s hippie family who bring their own bit of crazy into the mix. So, as you can see this book is loaded with an eclectic cast of characters that brings this book to life.
The plot was remarkable as well. Fast paced and comedic, you will be flipping the pages like mad and before you know it, you will have read it from front to back. I also enjoyed how Molly Harper added mystery, comedy, a healthy dose of romance, and a few twists and turns along the way without one overshadowing the other. Each element was well intertwined with the other and played out its part well adding a lovely flow to the plot.
Trust me BUY THIS BOOK you will thank me later! One of my favorites that I have read this year, a funny romantic romp that will have you laughing until you cry!
This book defiantly has that “pick me up, take me home, and read me” quality. In my opinion, it was the perfect cover for this book!
