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 not-quite-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.

I love this series and the narration is perfect for the witty humor that is woven throughout the story-line.  This book doesn’t take place in the valley or even in Grundy.  It takes place along the roads of rural Alaska where Caleb runs into Anna when she gets off work of a local grocery store.  Yes, our local pack doctor has left the valley and is now working as a cashier in a small town grocery store.

Caleb is a bounty hunter of sorts, though his bounties aren’t always of the legal variety.  While trying to take down one of his marks, he gets shot.  Anna gets him into his truck and gets him out of town and patches him up.  She quickly notices his quick healing and figures out who and what he is.  Not only is a werewolf, but he is related to the werewolves she used to care for.  Anna can’t tell him this because she is running and can’t go back.  Caleb can’t tell her that he is a werewolf.  These lies cause tons of hilarity as they tap dance around each other to hide their secrets.

Since this story takes place on the road, we don’t get the secondary characters we are used to in this series.  At least, not until the end.  That isn’t to say that there are no secondary characters, there are, they just aren’t as detailed as we are used to in the previous two books.  That doesn’t make them less fun, well, not much anyway.  While I do miss the wolves and humans from the valley and Grundy, it was nice to get out and see others in Alaska.  We also get to spend more time with Anna and Caleb together and they are great.

How to Run With A Naked Werewolf Narration

by

Amanda Ronconi

 

Amanda Ronconi Narrator

The narration of Amanda Ronconi is perfect for this series.  She really brings out the snark that is written into each book.  Each character is voiced differently.  You are never trying to figure out who is talking.  She is also great at bringing out emotions of character.  I’ve never read one of Molly Harper’s books, I’ve only listened and I don’t see that ever changing as long as the narrator stays the same.

  1. I love her sense of humor! I haven’t read the previous two books but to heck with it, I will read whatever she writes for the sake of getting some laughs.

    • While I think you could read this book without reading the previous books in the series, I highly recommend them as well. The entire series is a great light-hearted group of stories that is set in small town Alaska. The main characters and romance are great, but I love all the secondary characters in the series as well. The loving banter that goes on between them is wonderful. There are some great laugh out loud moments in all three books.

      I really hope we don’t have to wait as long for the next book as we did for this one.

  2. I can’t wait to make me & Molly’s characters best friends. Sounds like she has all that I love packed in her books.

    • If you like snarky light-heart humor, you should really check her out. She has a vampire series that is cute as well, though I prefer the werewolf books myself. She uses the same narrator for the vampire books too. It is a great combination.

  3. Ahh I so cannot wait to read this one. I just love the series. So much fun 🙂 Glad to hear it was good even if different than the other ones!

    • I think the fact that it was so different help make it so much better. While, I missed all the secondary characters that I LOVE, we get to spend a lot of time with our hero and heroine. I really hope we don’t have to wait so long for the next one. 🙂

  4. Haha yes … I so want to read this series. I mean, c’mon, the titles alone makes me want to read them. lol.

    • The titles are what drew my attention the series in the first place, though it is more the humor that keeps me. That and the wonderful, fun-loving characters.

  5. This was one of my fav installments in this series. I really liked the bounty hunter aspect of the storyline. The fact that Harper and Ronconi are a match made in audiobook heaven definitely helps too. Great review!

    • Thanks Carmel. I did like the bounty hunter aspect and the pop culture references to Dog the Bounty Hunter were great too. 🙂

  6. I have this series on my wishlist and I am glad to hear the narration is perfect for this blend of humor and fantasy. I think when I pick these up I will go audio. yay!

    • You won’t regret it. This series has had me chuckling at work and getting strange looks from co-workers on more than one occasion.

  7. I adore Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi- they’re the perfect duo! I’ve only read book 1 in this series so far, but I own book 2 and look forward to listening to it and book 3. I didn’t realize that the stories weren’t just a continuation of Mo’s life though, that’s kind of a bummer, since I loved that story.

    • This is a PNR story, so you have a new couple with each story. You will get to see some of Mo, but the other characters are pretty good too. I loved Mo too and missed her as well. Book three is my favorite so far.

  8. I have been hearing great things about this one! So glad to hear that you enjoyed it. 🙂

    • Thanks, this is a great series. I listened to books one and two more than two years ago. I hope we don’t have to wait as long for the next one.
