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. . . .Let me just say it, if there was a Grundy Alaska and naked werewolves like Cooper around... I'm moving! However, I don't have Mo's magic touch in cooking to get a whole town to take me in. *sigh* I loved this PNR and laughed quite frequently while reading it. Mo is a great character and I loved her sense of humor. Loved the way she quipped with the other characters in this book. No matter the situation, she was able to find some sort of humor within it. Oh, if I had her mouth... well, I'd be in worse trouble that I usually get in, but I'd enjoy it more. ;) She also had great names for, *ahem* well things that she found interesting. I loved her "name" for a certain body part of Cooper. I laughed every time I read it. I won't divulge what that name was specifically *evil laugh* but I need to say even though I laughed it was a compliment... ;D
Cooper and Mo's relationship was anything but easy as it usually is in a good PNR. In fact they bickered and tried to out-snark each other in the beginning. For example, he had come to see her after shifting back into human form (so no clothes *waggles eyebrows*), they argue, but Mo has the last word... and I loved it:
...I could see that he was about to make one of his patented oh-so-clever parting remarks, so I beat him to the punch.Ah yes... the sound of lovebirds. ;) There were of course moments that made you love Cooper and not just laugh or roll your eyes... like his concern for everyone be it were or human.
"You're still naked!" I called smiling nastily. "It's cold outside. Expect shrinkage."
I give this humorous PNR book 5 stars. I so recommend this book and I know I'll be reading it again in the future. This book was just published on the 22! :) Go forth and read!
Oh, and since this is book boyfriend day... I will nominate Cooper as my book boyfriend today. He could be an ass, but he was a tormented and sweet ass. Oh, and apparently he did have a sweet... oh never mind. ;)
