Description:
Down, Boy

Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger only to discover he’s really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don’t faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she’s known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham that’s a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

The problem is, Caleb employs his lupine tracking abilities as a notquite-legal bounty hunter, and Anna is suspicious of both him and his profession. On the run from her past, with old problems closing in, she’d like to stay far, far away from anybody with connections to the law. Caleb, however, seems determined to keep her close. Are his intentions noble, or is he working a more predatory angle?
Anna’s been dreaming of returning to a semi-normal life, but now she’s experiencing a strange new urge . . . to join Caleb in running with the wolves.

Review:
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a huge Molly Harper fan. So when I was on her website (ok, I admit, stalking her website), and saw that there was a new Naked Werewolf book coming out, I was doing a happy dance. And after reading it, i can say that the wait was worth it. Better yet, if you haven’t discovered the pleasure that is reading a Molly Harper, you can actually read this book (even if its the 3rd in the series), without reading the previous 2, because the main characters are only loosely mentioned in the previous books (in fact, it took me about 1/3 of the book to put 2 and 2 together on who they were – and I still got 5 😉 ).

I liked the whole on the run from something storyline that was used, because it is one of my more favorite tropes to be used. Especially if you add the werewolf twist into the story. I will say that while reading I noticed the typical Molly snark, there aren’t any specific quotes that are sticking out in my mind, like previous books (in fact, just tonight, I used one from another book by her). And once again I felt like I was transported to Alaska and the adventures there. (I credit the author with my sudden desire to freeze my butt off there – which is what the cover made me do – bare legs and boots)

I gave How to Run with a Naked Werewolf 4 stars and like always, look forward to reading what Molly comes up with next. I’d recommend this for anyone who likes quirky PNR, or smexy PNR because it hit my buttons on both accounts.

      REALLY! You need to add one to the pile – she also has a contemp series (review of book 2 will be up soon) and a stand alone contemp; as well as another Paranormal series (vampires) and a spin-off of it

        keliI’d say either book 1 in this series (How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf) or her stand-alone contemp (One Last Thing)

    The only paranormal romances I’ve ever enjoyed! Because she’s funny!
    (But MAN, does that gal on the cover have some skinny legs!)

      Seriously – was actually kinda disappointed this cover didn’t have the cartoon element like the other two in the series

      Have you tried Lucy March? She has a quirky PNR that I enjoyed – complete with flying toasters
