My Thoughts:

The third book in Molly Harper’s Naked Werewolf series, How to Run with a Naked Werewolf features Dr Anna Moder (AKA Tina), a woman on the run, and Caleb Graham, bounty hunter and werewolf. Those familiar with the previous books, How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf and The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf will recognise the names though here, both Anna and Caleb are far from Grundy, Alaska.

This paranormal romance series is all about well, romance, and humour – lighthearted, fun, escapist entertainment, but there is a sombre side to this installment, Anna (AKA Tina) is on the run from an abusive, obsessive husband and he is a real and ever present threat to her.

The way Harper builds the romance between Anna and Caleb is lovely, from wariness, to friendship to flirtation and lust and despite the compressed time frame, it all seems to evolve naturally. Though Anna is understandably slow to trust him, the chemistry with the sexy and charming Caleb, is believable.

I enjoy Molly Harper’s sense of humour which often demonstrates perfect timing. There is snark but without a mean spirited edge and the banter between characters is laced with quips, without being overdone.

I think Harper makes a good effort of portraying domestic violence with the seriousness it deserves and Anna as a strong and resourceful woman, more survivor than victim. I also really liked that Caleb doesn’t rescue Anna, he supports her, and that is an important distinction.

I enjoyed How to Run with a Naked Werewolf, it is a quick, fun read, even with its serious side. Despite it being part of a series, the installment reads well as a stand alone and fans are sure to be satisfied.
