What happens when you combine Alaska wilderness, werewolves, and a witty heroine? You get happy girls at Smokinhotbooks!
Moving on, How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf (or as I like to refer to it as Nekkid Werewolf) starts off with Mo (real name Moon) fleeing Missouri to escape her overly enmeshed hippie parents and to start over in Grundy Alaska.
Population just over 2,000
Men 70% ladies 30%
Where men offer slabs of meat for courting and if you’re a ‘semi attractive’ woman with all your teeth you’ll be showered with affection and attention.
After accepting a job as a cook in a local diner, she meets Mr. I Don’t Trust Outsiders, Cooper. Sexy as all hell, but has the disposition of a cranky wolf,; Mo decides to steer clear of the disapproving local. Just when she is feeling settled late one night she hears a loud knocking and a cry for help. It’s Cooper, in a trap, nekkid, on her front porch. Oh, and he is a werewolf. No. Effing. Way.
The romance in How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf begins after Mo finds out what Cooper is. In classic Molly Harper style Mo’s internal dialogue and witty banter with he locals, really makes this story. I liked how Mo and Cooper’s romance progressed – instead of focusing on the ‘big werewolf reveal’ and then bam, story over. Molly Harper adds the side plots of local wolf attacking the locals and how Cooper became estranged from his pack. First off, I likey – I’ve read too many werewolf romance stories where the sole focus is how the main tweeps get together and these days that isn’t enough to hold my interest. I’ve got to hand it to MH and how she tied everything together.
If you were expecting this to be like the Jane Jameson series, I would say it is not as humorous because let’s be honest, no character can live up to Jane and Dick Chenney (no relation). Like with any Molly Harper book, I laughed, I snorted, I read it twice – How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf is just the kind of book SHB likes. If you are looking for a light, funny, paranormal-ish/contemporary romance I’d highly recommend this one.
PS Next book is due out in March 29th The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf
