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.

This is my first Molly Harper book, and I had a fantastic time reading it! How to Run with a Naked Werewolf is a fast read with a relatable, witty heroine, and the most adorable werewolf hero, and it’s filled with humor. I loved how the author manages to balance everything out so well–from the romance to the humor to the more serious parts of the book that include an abusive husband. How to Run with a Werewolf is basically a quick, fun read, and if you’re a paranormal romance fan who likes funny books, look no further.

Anna Moder, whose real name is Tina, has been on the run from her abusive soon-to-be ex-husband. She ran away when things were escalating and she settled down for a time as a doctor for a settlement of werewolves in Alaska. But when her husband was close to finding out where she was, she had to run again to protect the werewolves she grew to care for. And Anna runs right into Caleb. Caleb, the sweetest, most caring guy who worms right into Anna’s heart.

Caleb is the most adorable werewolf ever. He doesn’t know that Anna can tell he is one, but being a werewolf isn’t all that Caleb is. It turns out he’s a bounty hunter, but this doesn’t make him a bad guy. He’s actually a really genuine, down-to-earth, lovable, caring, and protective guy, if a bit furrier. And he can be totally sexy when he wants to be. He quickly manages to break down Anna’s walls and they grow to care and even love each other. But Caleb is hiding his own secrets too, secrets that might make Anna throw back up those walls Caleb so carefully managed to break down.

I really enjoyed the werewolf aspect of the book. Molly Harper doesn’t make werewolves complicated in her story. They’re simply there. There’s no elaborate backstory to the werewolves, and I liked reading that for a change. And I loved the humor in this book! Caleb and Anna match each other wit for wit, and they’re so freaking cute together. I had such a fun time reading this book, and I’ll definitely be reading the other books in this series!
