149) How to Run with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper

The Blurb :

Caleb Graham is a werewolf by nature, a tracker by profession. He uses his “extra gifts” to find people, and not always in the most legal or ethical manner. He doesn’t care what they’ve done, or who wants them found, as long as his considerable fee is paid. He likes his life simple and uncomplicated.

Anna Moder, former physician to Caleb’s pack, happens across Caleb during a particularly violent “negotiation” that has left him bloodied and unconscious. She helps him, despite the fact that he’s cost her a car, so he insists that she stay with him on the road for a while. As they grow closer, Anna looks past the gruff exterior and and the questionable job to thoroughly decent werewolf underneath.

Anna – who is careful to edit her involvement with Caleb’s pack from their conversations – doesn’t talk about why a nice girl wants to live in the middle of frozen nowhere, but she’s obviously on the run from something. When Anna’s past collides with Caleb’s current assignment from one of his sleazier contacts, Caleb finally has to make a choice—protect his job…or his potential mate?

My Thoughts :

When I get a book to review I check the release date.  I try and read the book about four weeks before the release because I don't want to post a review too early.  However there are certain books by certain authors that I can't hold out on for long and Molly Harper is one of those writers.  I have never read a book by this author that I didn't like and it doesn't matter if it was paranormal or not.  Molly Harper's books always have that special combination inside that just make you feel good and want to come back for more.

The characters in Molly's books are always special and unforgettable and 'How to Run with a Naked Werewolf' is no exception.  Anna is lovable from the get go and her story, strength and humour make you want to give her a hug and be her friend forever.  Caleb isn't an instant hit but I warmed up to him very quickly especially with all the snuggling and sniffing.  You also get the chance to see some of the werewolves from the previous two books in this series.  It is always nice to catch up and the author does love to show us how her other characters are doing and that is fine by me!

Anna's story is one that many women can relate too or can sympathise with in some way or another.  Anna's courage and stability is a wonder and  as soon as she ends up helping Caleb you want them to be together.  It is also not a huge giveaway to say they do or they don't become a couple because these books hold no surprises in regards of who will end up with who.  It is always the story that gets them to their happy ever after that makes for an enjoyable read and the storyline in this book is just amazing.

Twists, turns and some surprises lay in store for Anna and Caleb and it is fun to ride along with them on their road trip of fugitive apprehensions, stripper fighting and organ donor kidnapping adventures.  There is, as with all of Molly's books, never a dull moment and you will find yourself not only smiling but giggling at the witty art of her storytelling.

This is a must read author for me and I can't wait for more from Molly.  She has never disappointed me yet and I doubt she ever will.  Read all her books even if they don't have any werewolves or vampires inside.  They are all amazing reads and this new upcoming release is another shining example to add to the collection.  If you haven't already read any of Molly's books I highly recommend you do asap!  These are feel good reads and are worth every penny.

How to Run with a Naked Werewolf is due for release on December 31st and is the perfect read to bring you into the New Year!
