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.

I love reading other bloggers’ book reviews.  And although these reviews may influence me in whether I want to read a book or not, usually I read reviews for books I’ve already read, or ones I’m already interested in reading.  BUT there are a few bloggers whose reviews really influence me.  One of those bloggers is Jennifer from Feminist Fairy Tale Reviews.  So, when I saw her review for the audiobook of How to Run with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper, I immediately hopped on over to Audible and downloaded the audiobook.  How to Run with a Naked Werewolf was exactly the audiobook I was looking for, funny, light, but with a depth to it, and full of awesome characters.

How to Run with a Naked Werewolf is the second Molly Harper book I’ve read.  I also read How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf, the first in the Naked Werewolf series, and although I liked that one, I wasn’t really in a hurry to read any of the other ones.  I’m so glad that I decided give the audiobook of this one a try, though, because I like it so much.  I actually listened to it in just two days!

Anna, the main character in How to Run with a Naked Werewolf, is really the type of character I love to read about in books.  She’s got such a personality; she’s kind of feisty and sassy, and although she sometimes makes rash decisions, she’s just such a nice person.  She narrates this story, and it’s so much fun to be inside her head.  That said, sometimes the internal dialogue gets a little long, and on those occasions I would get a little impatient for the story to move along.  But those occasions were rare, and it didn’t effect my overall feelings towards this book that much.

The werewolf in this story, Caleb, is pretty drool worthy.  He’s certainly not perfect, and his career choices aren’t the most admirable, really, but once he meets Anna, he becomes so protective of her, and I love that.  But even though he’s really protective, he doesn’t try to control Anna.  Loved that!

How to Run with a Naked Werewolf is a really quick read, and it’s got a lot of humor in it.  Books that make me laugh always find special places in my heart, and this is certainly the case with this one.  There is a bit of a twist towards the end which I wash’t a huge fan of, but it’s not really bad, I just didn’t want the story to go in that direction.  But it all worked out in the end.

How to Run with a Naked Werewolf was the exact audiobook I needed, and I’m so glad I read this one.  Listening to the audiobook definitely improved my overall feelings towards this one.  If you’re looking for something easy-going, with lots of laugh out loud moments, and a happy ending, look no further.

    I’m so glad you liked this! Molly Harper is one of the few auto-buy authors I have and I’m always happy to see other people enjoy her work. I’m with you on the twist near the end…I thought the story was moving that way and was a bit disappointed by it. But, it didn’t effect my overall enjoyment so I let it go. Great review!
