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 neighbor Cooper Graham—who has been openly critical of Mo's ability to adapt to life in Alaska—has trouble of his own.

To all those silly friends of mine my friends who LOVED this book: you know I love you no matter what, right? Right.

I was totally prepared to tackle this one. I'd stocked up on the vodka and bought a brand new anti lovey dovey crap inhaler. I'd gotten a mushy sap allergy shot, too. And my knife collection was polished. In other words, I was READY.

Mo made me laugh. I loved that she is the daughter of hippies. I adored coop and I had always been a sucker for the running and jumping into your mans arms thing. The story was good there was enough action to keep it from being all loving and mushy but it was good and romantic too... I loved this book!!!!!! Molly Harper in one of my new favorites!!!!!!

I liked it. A light, fun read. The more I read, the better it got.

Great no, FANTASTIC female character. I have no idea how she ended up being so normal with those parents of hers (love them by the way). I applaud her for being brave and flying the nest, and then flying even farther away to escape the “nest-ers”.

Little missteps:

okay, I am officially obsessed with this book, I honestly feel like it was written just for me. It was set in Alaska (aka my obsession), featured a surly werewolf hero, meddling family members, and the sassiest female lead. I am in love with everything to do with this book and I cannot even collect my thoughts enough to write a cohesive review (not that my reviews are ever cohesive lol)

A buddy read with the reluctant PNR participants at The MacHalo Freaks group

This was supposed to be a Paranormal Romance, but it is actually very much of a straight forward contemporary romance with the dude shifting into wolf ... The plot is typical - Mo, a girl from Mississippi, moves away from her overbearing parents, to be an independent adult, and chooses to go as far away while staying in the same country as she can. She goes to Grundy, Alaska, population couple of thousand...

How To Flirt With A Naked Werewolf is book one in The Naked Werewolf series by Molly Harper. First, I want my first statement to be this: I LOVE THIS SERIES!!! Okay, there, I got that out of my system. Now let me tell you about this book.

Mo, or as her parents named her, Moonflower, has to escape. Her upbringing was anything but normal. Her parents are hippies and even after she left home, her mother continued to meddle in her life in the most embarrassing of ways. So Mo is nearly 30 years old, h

When you have the image of Joe Manganiello in your head as you read about the werewolf and hero named, "Cooper," it makes for quite an enjoyable read! "Mo," the heroine has just moved from Mississippi to Alaska, if nothing else than to escape her "hippie"-eat-organic-don't-kill-animals-for-meat; free-love-unmarried parents. (I'd have left skidmarks!) Mo, who has the sarcasm and wit to keep you laughing outloud, is fresh meat in the small town of Grundy, where men out number women 20 to 1. Fortun ...more

How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf is the first book in the Naked Werewolf series and another great story by Molly Harper.

Oh, how I love the characters and this world Ms. Harper has created! She's got such a talent for giving strong voices to her heroines, and Mo (wait til you find out what Mo is the nickname for) is definitely a female force to be reckoned with! The dry humor and witty banter throughout the book, along with a very sexy, reluctantly Alpha werewolf named Cooper, make this a truly

“I’m living with a werewolf. I have to be a little sick.”

Mo is so busy rebelling against her hippiest-hippie, vegan, green, and mercilessly organic parents that she is not aware of her own purposes in life. So she leaves hot Mississippi and travels to Alaska to find herself.
“Mom was always telling me I needed to be more unpredictable.”

Mo is spirited and kind, sometimes irritating and outspoken, other times she is determined, but also happens to be

Mo Weinstein has had it with her controlling, crazy-ass hippie parents who won't leave her alone and keep interfering with her life. Especially her mother, she doesn't know when to just shut up. What a fucking psycho, constantly yammering about vegetables and other shit.

(I'm just kidding. No offense.)

Anyway, like I said Mo's had it and decides to move to Grundy Alaska. Despite her fears, she fits in quite nicely in the little town and its locals, gets her own little house and a job.

4.5 Stars! I want a werewolf of my own...Grundy, Alaska...here I come!

I haven't read a Molly Harper book that I didn't like. Her reads are always engaging, loads of fun, with countless quirky characters and this one was no different. There was lots of hot steamy werewolf lovin', entertaining dialogue, and some witty one- liners! Once again, Amanda Ronconi rocked the narration. I have come to associate her voice with Molly Harper’s book. Ms. Ronconi gets the author’s humor, understands the natu
I had a fun time reading this humorous cute story of a southern woman who moves to nowhere Alaska to start a new life away from her overly attentive super hippie parents and ends up falling for a hot, slightly cantankerous local man who just happens to be a werewolf. The story was written in first person but I didn't really mind because I really liked our heroine, Mo (short for Moonflower Freedom Refreshing Breeze Joplin Duvall-Wenstein - her parents were really free spirits).

Boring. BORING. Borrrring. That's the main theme of this book. Not much happens, the female mc is whiny, the male mc is a wimp, and the villain is only has a three page appearance. Not appealing or compelling. I should've followed Sarah's example and DNF-ed this. I kept thinking something had to happen, but it never changed pace.

The story starts with way too much goddamn detail. I do not need to know about the texture, fabric content, design, color, and country of origin of your stupid jacket.

Fun. Escapism. Light. Funny. Steamy. For me, these words describe How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf perfectly. This book is to paranormal and shifter books what Stephanie Plus is to crime thrillers, but the heroine is more skilled, sane and adept than Stephanie Plum. “Mo”, the heroine, has the crazy family she is ambivalent about, a funny female side kick, lots of men attracted to her, a former failed relationship, two m

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

I loved the writing and fell in love with the heroine. Mo was all kind of awesome and I completely fell for her and cracked up more than once each time she would share about her upbringing.
I was charmed by the setting of a small town romance, Grundy, Alaska definitely has some perks.

The plot was... predictable. No surprises for me here, but I enjoyed Mo's antics and POV so much, I went with the flow anyway.
The romance was... wonky. I mean, yes the sex scenes were steamy but

4 Stars - well written with funny characters, some steamy sweet love, a naked man (werewolf) and a wonderful dialogue (banters) at best Chick Lit style

A delight to read - so many wonderful witty comments and thoughts from this exuberant, quick-witted and a survivor and, based on this measurement, also a pretty tough heroine Mo. She is a 30 years old woman, who after a flown boyfriend, nagging parents and a boring job requires a change of scenery, and moves from the warm south to a small cabin in

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.

My new favorite author. I'm reasonably up to date on her "Nice Girls Don't" series, time to move to warm, sunny Alaska and have a look at some naked werewolves.
Molly Harper manages to make supernatural creatures comically mundane. Stylistically her stories are all very similar but they are such good fun that it's hard to hold anything against her.

I feel like I always pick up a paranormal adult romance novel thinking that I cannot possibly give it more than three stars and sometimes, I just do. It's not that these books are thought-provoking or deep, it's not that they make you cry or scream, it's not even that they are books that change your life. Instead, they're novels that offer some perfect fun and put a smile on your face when you're down and sometimes, that's even harder to do than write a story that touches your h

It was a nice enough read. Heroine's name was Mo so that piqued my interest.

Sort of skimmed to the end. Not sure if I will be checking out the rest of the series. Not really too into PNR and werewolves so it was probably just me.

**3.5 stars**

This was a fun audiobook. Amanda Ronconi did a spot-on narration of the character of Mo and provided a nice range of distinct voices, even if her male voices sounded like hoarse, slightly constipated females.

The paranormal aspect of this book was pretty light with much of the interesting action focusing on Mo's journey and experiences in Grundy, Alaska. I loved the setting of the small-town Alaskan village and the characters that inhabit the town. The whole ambiance of the book was

ahhhhhh i think i found my stride and what I like in paranormal romance! definitely a PNR with more focus on contemporary side of things, a light plot, quirky characters, and humor.
I liked this! It's a cross between chick-lit and PNR. I chuckled several times (but it's not always lighthearted). It's alternatively witty, sexy, sad, gritty, and suspenseful, with a wonderful cast of secondary characters and a fun sense of community. The ending chapters were a bit grim, and had a slightly different feel..

PLOT with NO MAJOR SPOILERS : Mo (her full name is such a kick!!) moves all the way from Mississippi to Grundy, Alaska to escape her meddling hippie parents. Cooper moves acro

I accidentally stumbled across this book as a local discount store and the cover instantly caught my eye. I kept eying this book down, knowing full well I needed to pick it up, and I finally caved. To no one's surprise, I have been eying this cutesy romance on my book shelf for AGES and I finally knew it was time to pick it up. Nothing is better than my guilty pleasure - romances with a pinch of fantasy!
