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. . . .

Darcy's Review:
After reading this book I have to admit I want to pack up my belongings and move to a remote Alaskan town, I mean who wouldn't when you are having issues in your life. But then again if I did decide to do that I sure as heck wouldn't be a good looking guy around for me, I would be left with a town filled with the old guy that kept upping his offer and the one everyone ran from.

Mo is one of those characters you can't help but to love form the first minute you meet her. I loved hearing about her unorthodox upbringing and her parents, but if I had those parents (they bring the term helicopter parents to a whole new heights) I would have made a run for the great north tundra. I especially loved it that she had to do all of this on the sly and wouldn't give them her contact info. I love my parents, but I love them even more 300 miles away, so I can relate.

The quirky characters filling the town had me laughing. I loved the restaurant/saloon that seemed to be the social center, one where they all gathered to meet, talk, and had all of their events. Mo and Evie's burgeoning friendship was great for laughs in their "girls" days.

Along with Mo, I didn't like Cooper at the start. He was an ass with no redeeming qualities, who really had to work hard to overcome, at times I didn't think he was going to be up for it. At first I thought it was just with Mo that he was like that with, but as the story progressed we saw Cooper was like that with the whole town. It is not until after you hear his whole story that you understand why.

I also really liked that from the first day Mo meet Cooper she didn't put up with his crap and actually called him on it. It was surprising that with his feelings for Mo, that Cooper went to Mo for help when he really needed it, and then showed her his biggest secret. Once he decided on wanting Mo, Cooper sure was the alpha male and didn't waste any time.

Meeting Cooper's family sure added another dimension to him. I wish there was more of Pops he was a card, Sampson had me laughing with his on purpose innuendo, and Maggie just plain drove me nuts. The others that we meet of the pack were interesting. The issues that were within the pack was something that I didn't see coming until Mo did.

Overall this book was so much fun to read, it had me laughing out loud so often through the book. I can't wait for more tales from Alaska!

Overall rating:
