Description: 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. . . . .

The Good Stuff
  • A truly funny, sweet, charming adorable read
  • Some very naughty bits that had me wishing werewolves were real  - however I would be quite pissed for their obvious disregard for expensive lingerie (but hey if he was willing to replace it all, I could get over it)
  • Love the quirky secondary characters
  • The sense of community is so nicely written about that I had a sudden urge to move to  Grundy , Alaska
  • Funny as hell that I found myself giggling and snorting out loud on many occasions
  • The dialog between characters is quirky and reminded me a little of Buffy
  • Opening paragraph had me hooked and knew right away that this was going to be a book I would love. 
  • Will definitely be looking for more books by  Molly Harper
  • Mo is wonderful character and I loved her sass and her bravery
  • The conversations between Mo and her Mom are awesome
  • Great sexual chemistry between Mo and Cooper
  • Love the flirting between the men of Grundy and Mo
The Not so Good Stuff
  • the forgiveness is way too quick for my taste
  • Way too many favorite quotes for me to narrow down to just three
  • The descriptions of the food made me extremely hungry
Favorite Quotes/Passages
"Abner told me that if I moved into his cabin on the outskirts of town, my feet would always be warm and the toilet seat would always be down. I thanked him for the tempting offer.

"No, actual meat, It's sort of a tradition in Grundy, a macho provider thing.  They want to show you that they can feather your nest, so to speak. It's pretty Neanderthal of them, but sweet at the same time. When a Grundy man offers you a rump roast, it's the equivalent of asking you to go steady."


"Maybe its just an overabundance of hormones, a response to a sexual starvation diet. I'd been without for so long that my body was craving the worst possible thing for me.  Cooper was a carnal triple chocolate cheesecake , deep-fried on a stick."

What I Learned

  • Werewolves make excellent lovers, with the exception of their lingerie ripping ways
  • That Alaska sounds like a wonderful place to live
Who should/shouldn't read
  • For anyone with a sense of humour
  • Fans of Jennifer Estep, MaryJanice Davidson, Ilona Andrews, Julie Kenner, Marta Acosta, and even Jeaniene Frost will definitely enjoy
