Summary

Northern Exposure. 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 neighbour 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, its 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….

Just a romance story really

I found this OK but nothing like as good as the first book in Molly Harpers Half Moon Hollow Vampire series.

This is more a straightforwards romance book where one half of the pair happens to a be a werewolf, and its missing some (but not all) of the humour that makes Nice Girls Dont Have Fangs so entertaining.

I suspect this is more a book that will appeal to female listeners. The heroine is likeable enough and the Male lead is a typical overprotective and stupid brooding character with the cliched back story.
Undecided as to whether I will bother with the next one, though I probably will at some point especially if it appears in a 2 for one offer like this one did

So bored!!!

It took me a couple of years to get through this book. Literally. There was nothing overtly wrong with the writing, and the narration was fine, but something about the characters and plot line made it all so dull. I kept getting distracted because I didn’t care about what happened next, and I ended up listening to other books in the meantime until I could be bothered to finish it. Two years later and I’ve finally done it! No chemistry between the characters and the hero was one of the most disappointing heroes I’ve had in a book in recent history. This was the equivalent to the fluffy chick lit holiday reads that I avoid like the plague that have zero emotional depth. The paranormal element was very light and it read more like a normal romance novel that happens to have werewolves in it.

Enjoyment plus.

Funny, sad and highly entertaining. Molly Harper is a good author, definitely on my read more list, and Amanda Ronconi a talented narrator. If you are into this type of fiction give M H a try.

So much fun!

I really loved the characters, I laughed a lot and wished the story was a lot longer. The characters are strong, witty, sarcastic and can be bitchy. In a funny way. Just an awesome listen!!

Twilight for grown ups

Like the other reviewer, I was a bit wary when I started listening to this, but I actually grew to really like her accent. The story itself is very enjoyable, I was a little disappointed when I realised how many parallels there were with Twilight (don't get me wrong, I LOVE twilight, but I was hoping for something a bit more original) I still really enjoyed listening to it, but was quite glad to be doing so on headphones as there are some quite explicit sex scenes!! Although there are some quite serious themes throughout the book, there are a lot of funny moments which had me laughing out loud. I love how squirmy any mention of Mo's parents made me feel, they are such brilliant characters, but I would not want to meet them! Overall it was really good and lighthearted to listen to, I only took off one star for the Twilight similarities.

Very enjoyable

Being English, getting used to the narrator's accent took me a while, but a couple of chapters in I saw it more as a good thing, adding more reality to the book. The book as a whole is very well written and the plot was exciting. I took to listening in my car on the way to work, desperate to finish it. I look forward to reading/listening to more from this author.

A Captivating Paranormal Romance Story.

Molly Harper is a new-to-me author but I will definitely read more. I found this book very easy to read and love her writing style. I engaged quickly with our romantic couple, Cooper and Mo, and liked the wealth of characters that Ms Harper created; loving the various personalities. The Alaskan village of Grundy also played its part and is an inspired backdrop to this fun story. I loved the plot with all its twists and turns, and enjoyed how the story threads were satisfactorily concluded by the end.

Amanda Ronconi is a new-to-me narrator and I was impressed with her performance; the pace of her narration was just right, I enjoyed her inflections for the different scenes and the vocal variances she used for the characters' dialogue. Amanda transported into Mo's life and made my emotional connection to her adventures all the more captivating.

There are some uses of bad language and scenes of violence and sex, so I would recommend this story to adults who are not offended by content of this nature who love charming, paranormal romance tales with a good helping of humour and a happily ever after ending.

Fantastic.

I stumbled across this gem of a story by accident and I am so glad I did. The writer has a way of making the characters come alive and the audible version of it is brilliant.
time to move on to the rest of the books

An absolute hoot

Mo Weinstein moves all the way to Grundy Alaska to escape the tender ministrations of her very embarrassing hippy parents and life in general. Packing up her home and her underwear collection she makes a getaway during the night.

The whole book is funny, I find myself laughing out loud which is not a good ideas as I am sat in the office listening to this whilst I do data entry!

Loved It

Any additional comments?

Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.

I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Happy Reading

Really enjoyed the book

Would you listen to How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to this again. It was great for listening to whilst driving - although snorting with laughter when pulled up at the lights made me glad I was wearing sunglasses :D

Who was your favorite character and why?

All the characters were fun but I liked Mo the best for her dry, sarky humour and for not being afraid to bean a werewolf with a fire extinguisher!

What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I thought Amanda Ronconi really added to my enjoyment of the book with clearly separating the different characters (I loved the accents!) and also having the right tone for the humour.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

For once being stuck in traffic wasn't a trial as I got to listen to more of the story, but I actually quite liked hearing it in installments and probably preferred that to listening to it all in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

This was my very first Audible book and I am so pleased that it gave me so much enjoyment. I have bought the second book and can't wait to start that one.

I was very happy that I could at last buy the book as unfortunately, due to the huge aggravation of geographic restrictions, I have been prevented from buying the ebook version.

Perfect combination of author and narrator!!

I am a huge fan of the partnership between Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi, and this book was the best yet. There is no doubt it is not intended to be taken too seriously. These books are light, funny, clever and totally entertaining. Ronconi gives the perfect voice to Harper's characters, and I found myself laughing out loud while listening. I can't imagine a Molly Harper book in any other voice The characters in small-town Grundy, are charmingly eccentric - I loved them and laughed along with them. This is perfect for bed time listening. or if you're having a bad day. Fabulous and totally worth a credit! Get them all!!

Cute

Mo (Moonbeam) Wenstein moves north to Grundy Alaska and meets Cooper a self imposed exile werewolf.

People are being attacked around Grundy by a wolf and no clues as to who is doing it.

While Mo and Cooper begin to get romantically closer, the more dangerous things become and accusations of who the werewolf creating the problem is.

Definitely based on a true story - hahahaha! It was a cute read to take the mind off the covid-19 virus situation and Amanda Ronconi did a great job narrating.

Surprisingly great

This was my first ever audiobook and I loved it. It was a little weird hearing a woman speaking the men's roles and how they all sounded like raspy old men but it didn't stop me from enjoying the book. I don't have enough experience to rate the performance of the narrator so I'm just going with 3 stars.

Unlikley but effective combination of genres

I'm not generally a follower of either the supernatural or romance genres so this was not a book I would typically have chosen. I can't say what made me decide to give it a go but the Molly Harper / Amanda Ronconi team deliver some bizarre and comic results and have made me keen to find more of the same. The wonderfully matter-of-fact way the author deals with some of the more unusual aspects of the supernatural I found very appealing. All in all, a great, comedic listen with some laugh out loud moments.

Disappointing

I really enjoyed "the care and feeding of stray vampires". This was neither as funny nor as clever, and there was way more sex than I am comfortable listening to on audio in a public place! Sulky werewolves also aren't that appealingly to me - and I'm not keen on the "I have to hurt/abandon you to save you from me" give the girl some credit for having some brain and some guts.

Also, I'm Australian so I can't judge, but some of the accents seemed really weird to me. Do Alaskans really sound like that?

Great fun story had me laughing out loud

Would you listen to How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf again? Why?

I thought this was a great story with interesting characters. Harper makes an unbelievable scenario seem so plausible.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I really enjoyed this book and couldn't wait to get back to it.
