“Freakin' hilarious! I fell in love with Harper's Nice Girl series, it only seems appropriate for her to come out with it's counterpart, the werewolf series.
“My first paranormal comedy. Different but enjoyed the story. Nice twist and turns. Girl strong personality, girly but not too girly. Heroe just the right blend of brooding and sexy. ”Adele S wrote this review yesterday. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Mo decides to run away from her ex, hippie parents to Alaska where it will be difficult for mother to just stop by for visit out of the blue. Mo decides to rent a home for a year and see how it goes, everyone there pretty much opens up to her when she helps out the owner of the Saloon the local it place. Mo becomes the cook and adds to the menu everyone loves her for she is pretty, young, can cook, and has all her teeth. Everyone but Cooper who tells her she wont make it through the winter. Well that is just some sexual tension and go through the roller coaster that is going to be their life.”Jennifer G wrote this review Thursday, February 7, 2013.

“This is one of those books that I'm a little bit chagrined to have read. It was fun and quick but probably didn't contribute anything to my life except a little bit of an escape.”Julie wrote this review Sunday, December 9, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“I absolutely LOVED the setting for this book. Many scenes were recalled from 'Northern Exposure' and 'Men in Trees' to help build my mental images since I've never set foot anywhere even close to Alaska in terms of climate or wide open spaces. We have the mountains over here in the UK, but I'm sure even they don't really compare in scale or beauty.
Another useful mental image that I have to especially thank a fellow reviewer for inspiring me with, is to simply transpose the face and body of Joe Manganiello onto Cooper's character, and voilà! Instant sexy werewolf. Just add water.
Seriously if I were ever to be convinced that a man could really turn into a wolf, this would be the man. Rawr.
And the the main character, Mo? She was delightful. Written in first person, I really enjoyed Molly Harper's writing style and voice. I was slightly worried by the cartoony cover that the humour would be a bit too daft, but it was a lot more sophisticated than I'd expected, and I just loved being in that setting and the town of Grundy for the short time that I was.
Mo is a 29 year old marketing executive, having a minor life crisis, and decides in all her wisdom that moving to the ass end of nowhere is the answer. A cabin in the middle of a small town in Alaska seems to fit the bill, so off she pops. You soon learn that she has got every reason to want to escape her life in the South, but that's something I'll let you discover for yourself as it's a very amusing backstory.
The town of Grundy has a feast of great characters to enjoy, and it's a small town where everyone knows everyone. And since the men outnumber the women, Mo is a more than welcome addition to the population.
Well, at least she is to most people. Cooper- surly, cranky man that he is- seems to have a problem with her right from the word go, but Mo's not one to take that kind of thing lying down. Cooper soon learns that kissing Mo is the only real way to make her be quiet. Oh, the hardship.
“You will treat my underwear with the reverence it deserves. Next time, you will stop and appreciate--hell, you'll marvel at the miracle of my ass clad in silk.”
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I thought the secondary characters were extremely well developed, the mystery kept me entertained, I thought she captured the spirit of small town life wonderfully, and I can't wait to read more from this author. I've also got a list of snarky one-liners that I plan on stealing from Mo hence forth.
A funny, romantic book. Highly recommended.
4 Stars! ★★★★”
“I really enjoyed this humorous paranormal romance (pretty much hits as many genres as possible). Only wish the narrator had actually had a southern accent, instead of sounding like someone from the midwest. Good voice, though.”Janet S wrote this review Tuesday, May 29, 2012.

“Mo lol not her real name but lol you'll have to read to figure it out. Mo is on the run but not in the literal since that she's in trouble. She's running from everything in her life. Raised by hippies all her life (parents who are very very on the left side)and a failed engagement she decides to move as far away from everything she knows up to Alaska. There she realises things must change and she starts the process. She starts working in a restaurant in this small town and meets all kinds of people. Love seems to be in the air. Cooper an alpha and loner rubs her the wrong way but she can't seem to figure out what it is about him that keeps her wanting more.... Cooper on the other hand has soo much baggage that he's running from and holding in it's funny how things work out.. The book does take a few little twist but it is sort of predictable at times. The story starts off slow.. but builds over time.. It's actually a cute book with funny moments maybe more sentences lol. I think i will have to purchase the next one to see what happens.”Anna C wrote this review Wednesday, May 23, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I was a little leery going into this one, as I loved Molly Harper's Jane Jameson series, but alas there was no reason for my concern. It was a little slow to start but I really enjoyed it. Mo is a fun character and I loooooved Cooper :) I love all the banter between all the characters. It was a might predictable but I suppose you will have that sometimes, it didn't really take away from the story for me. I rather enjoy being right. lol. I will definitely continue with the series. ”*Lena* wrote this review Tuesday, April 24, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
