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?
I should preface saying that I adore the Naked Werewolf series by Molly Harper; these are my go-to books when I’m in the mood for a pick-me-up. When I found out there was a third book coming soon, it was basically a one woman party in front of my computer as I celebrated. Now that I’ve gotten that disclaimer out of the way, onto the review.
How to Run with a Naked Werewolf was everything I expected. There were some spunky characters. There was that wit and humor that just draws you in. And best of all, the romance that is basically all adorableness even when it frustrates the hell out of the reader. To top it off, this book has a very real issue being put forth, which is domestic violence. And it deals with it in a great way.
Both characters are ones we briefly either met or heard about in the previous two books. Anna Moder had been the pack doctor. But we start off the book with her having left her job and witnessing something she probably shouldn’t have. Then we have Cooper and Maggie’s bounty hunter cousin Caleb, who’s pretty much as cool as can be expected. (FYI, that’s pretty darn cool.) Throw them together and quite a few lies, and the romantic hijinks ensue.
Admittedly, this book isn’t my favorite of this series. But it didn’t stop me from zipping through the pages. It isn’t necessary to read this books in order, but I highly recommend it. And it’s a great choice for anyone looking for something easy and fun to read with some romance and a bit of the paranormal thrown in. Perfect for this holiday season!
