How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I inadvertently tore through all my other Molly Harper books, was finally caught up in the other series, so decided to dive in here, too. This is, obviously, an earlier set of books, so they may not be quite as polished and perfect in the balance of snarky goodness and serious stuff, but I still found this book an enjoyable start to a 3 book series.
This book starts with Mo, a woman determined to start over in her life. It also helps to push her out of her comfort zone because her parents are overbearing, life micromanaging, hippies. She randomly chooses a place way out there in Alaska, determined to make her life her own at last. She quickly makes friends in the small town and gets a job at the local eatery as a cook. Mo is an interesting blend of independent awesome woman and sometime moon-eyed girl. Maybe the local broody guy has something to do with it.
Of course, there's a broody guy with secrets. Mo pretty much has her choice of guys in town, being that newcomers are so rare, but she has her stubborn sights reluctantly set on Cooper, said brooder. He puts up a pretty good fight, watching her go on dates with the nice guy in town, but don't worry - they eventually combust. This also happens after the whole werewolf things comes to light. Mo's pretty open minded, though, so have no fear!
There's also the obligatory mystery of who is killing random people and attacking others, leaving signs of wolves. Things have a little twist and turn, and also some family drama, but we get to a good place by the end, complete with HEA. We meet Maggie in this one, too, who is the main character in the next book (though I don't think you really need to read these books in any particular order).
