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.

 How To Run With A Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper is a somewhat humorous romance that also deals with the very serious subject of domestic violence. While the subject matter is heavy the book doesn't make you feel weighed down by it, and it's actually empowering to see Anna go from scared victim to a tough survivor.
  Caleb is a werewolf who also happens to be a bounty hunter that operates on the not so straight and narrow side of the law, he's not really a bad guy but some of his jobs are definitely questionable. Anna is on the run from an extremely abusive ex, and has ended up in Alaska. Right from the get go Anna saves Caleb and they end up traveling together.
  The only thing that I didn't care for in this book was the slower pace. Don't get me wrong, it didn't stop me from liking the book or keep me from finishing it, but I would have enjoyed it much more if it had moved a little quicker. The story itself was really good and the romance while slow moving was still one that kept my interest and had me rooting for them. With Anna's history of domestic violence I'm not sure their relationship could have progressed much faster and still been believable though. Although this is book three in the Naked Werewolf series, newcomers shouldn't have any problems picking up the series with this one, as it could have easily been a standalone.

  1. I love her, I find her very funny :D

    Maybe I should read this this weekend.

    Hey how's the baby watch?

  2. It was a good read :) For me a 3 is a book that I liked but maybe had an issue or two with, but this was a good story and it wasn't so slow that I lost interest.

    The baby is due sometime in the next 10 days :) I can't wait, I will post pictures as soon as she shows up.
