Northern Exposure 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. . . .

I love Cooper. He sure knows how to make an entrance and sweep a girl right off her feet. Cooper is probably one of the surliest, most pain-in the butt, sexiest werewolves I've come across; he makes me bite my bottom lip. And then there is Mo: a girl who has overcome her crazy past and made a name for herself. She's nice, but stands up for herself and the people she loves when needed. My kind of girl. And here is what got me from the beginning: who hasn't thought about packing up and moving to some obscure location to simply find yourself? I think about that at least twice a year. I found myself smiling more, and more while reading this novel. I found myself falling in love with Cooper from the moment she described him, and his cocky and angry attitude. From the way he shuts her up, to the way he shows up at her house I was completely taken. If Cooper were real I would be having his Pups. Now, I was quite shocked because there is a bit of a mystery that ties in with the romance and usually I am good at calling who the "bad guy" is, but I couldn't pin point who it was until it was revealed. It was pretty well hidden which makes me even happier. There was something that I didn't like about the book mainly Mo...just a little tiny bit. She seemed too perfect sometimes (this may be my jealousy over Cooper come out too). I found myself swept away to a small obscure town like I've dreamt about doing so many times, and while I was there Molly Harper told me a love story that sizzled my skin from head to toe while giving me an adventure along side it.
Cooper-I definitely have no complaints about sexy, sexy Cooper. Other than the fact that he is not real. Or, maybe he is and I just need to have a really really long road trip.
Mo-She independent and has gotten away from her over bearing flower-power parents and created a life for herself.
Maggie-She has some anger-management issues. Or maybe she just has some girl power. Either way...her character makes me smile a little.
Allan-I did like you Allan.
Mo-sometimes she seemed just a little too perfect.
Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):
Overall the story was well written and the characters were extremely enjoyable. I loved reading and watching as the plot and the characters evolved, and I loved when Cooper said things and/or did certain extremely sexy things that I know every girl would have loved their man to pull off just as effectively. I laughed, I cheered, and I even got angry sometimes. Molly Harper keeps you on your toes and your heart pounding with her supernatural romance that is sure to bring a smile to all her reader's faces.

I love the cover of this book, so when I first saw it and then read the synopsis I was sure I was going to like it.
Mo is a young women who can't stand being close to her hippie parents anymore. So she decides to move to a place they couldn't find her, Alaska.
Mo is so funny. I liked her instantly because she's very independent. Even when the people in Alaska wasn't happy about her moving in, she was strong. Every thought she had was funny, I was laughing from the start. Everybody in town fell in love with her except Cooper, her sexy but surly neighbor.
I liked Cooper from the start. It was obvious he liked Mo, he is sexy and protective (and a great lover!). As a couple, Mo and Cooper are awesome. I liked their relationship but I wish I could have know more about Cooper, not only his issues with his pack.
The story was fine. At first it was the same story of a women in danger, a protective male...but then it changes. There are several murders in town, and people is beginning to suspect of a wolf. As we met Cooper's pack/family, it was pretty obvious who may be responsible of these murders. The mystery was interesting and I always like something else in romance books, but I thought is was too long to resolve, and there was moments that what I really wanted was more of Cooper and Mo.
It's the first time I read this author, but I really liked her fast writing and funny lines. I wasn't completely happy with the story, but I'm sure I'll keep reading more of her books.
Overall, it was a good light reading. If you are looking for a funny romance novel you should read this one! I will probably read the next one in the series, The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf, which is going to be released March 29th, 2011.
