Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stones throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valleys pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg. Maggie just cant seem to convince Nick to leave... and even worse, she cant convince herself to stay away from him.
Cross-species dating is problem enough for a harried alpha female, but on top of that, a rival group of werewolves is trying to move into the valley. With interpack war threatening, Maggie cant afford to be distracted. Combining romance and a career can be tough for anyone; for a werewolf in love with a human, it may be disastrous.

I absolutely LOVED this book. It was my first Molly Harper book and I will be listening to more. The lead character in this book is so quirky and cute and always has a witty sense of humor.
This was a great follow-up to "How To Flirt With A Naked Werewolf". It was fun and romantic, and kept me very entertained throughout.
This book started off interesting with decent plot progression, but about halfway, I found I had, for some reason, become immune to the character's plights. I saw that the main character who was supposed to be a leader, was just following along and not really taking action to effect change or direction for her group. I found it was hard to become engaged with such a limp main character, when the premise of the main plot was that she was the one to decisively deal with any threats. My frustration with the lack of energy or purpose devolved into lack of interest in the book. I stuck it out until about 3/4 of the way hoping something would peak my interest and then just gave it up as a waste of time.
Not a whole lot to say. This is a very light, occasionally amusing, story. The narrator does a good job. My main complaint is that the author uses "phase" continually for the changing of form for the werewolves. I felt like it was a Star Trek episode. It would be nice if she'd used "change" or "shift" sometimes. On the other hand, I liked that their clothes did not shift with them. I also felt like their shift was too easy, but that's just my opinion.
Light, funny and the narration was a blast! I actually laughed outloud at the gym while on the treadmill. (people look at you like you are wierd when you do this) If you want to escape into a world of humor for a few hours, this is the book.
Set in Alaska, a town full of werewolves is visited by a researcher looking for proof that werewolves really exist. Light romance, well performed. The head "wolf" is a young woman just learning the ropes of leadership. I hope this author writes more stories in this line.
I enjoyed these books so much. Great character development and humor it has lead me to all the other books by the author (which also haven't disappointed.) This was a fun twist on werewolves and keeps your interest throughout. The explanations don't seem drawn out, just add to the story. And the narrator is great!
Funny, Sarcastic, Lovable
Nick was my favorite character because he is so laid back and sweet. Nothing seems to shake him or deter him from his goal.
Her sarcasm is absolutely perfect, in all the right places, at all the right times. I love listening to her narration of Molly Harper's stories. For me, she is to Harper's stories what Phil Gigante is to Karen Marie Monings Highlander Series.
Hilarious, sexy, exciting
I almost fell out of my chair laughing when Maggie realized she had marked her mate by biting him on the butt! Good times.
Amanda did a great job with all of the characters, but she brought a really biting (no pun intended!) voice to Maggie's super-sized attitude. She did the same with Mo in the first book and I loved that one too.
First of all, I accidentally read this book without realizing it's the second in a series - it's not really obvious from the book's page. If you haven't read How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf, consider reading that one first. You can read this book without the other - you won't be totally lost - but they do refer to things that happened in that book in this one. If you have already read How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf and liked it, I like this one even more, so go for it.
On to the review - we all know that there are a lot of books involving werewolfs out there at the moment and they all have similarities. What sets this book apart is how amusing it is. In How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf we meet the main character in this one, Maggie, but she's not a major player. It's an interesting change to have this second book be from the perspective of a different character and have the narrator from the first book play a subsidiary role. I wonder if there will be a third book from yet another person's perspective. In any case, although Maggie came across as kind of unlikable in How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf, I absolutely love her in this book. The story arc is pretty formulaic - I predicted the ending well in advance of getting there - but that doesn't matter much because the author plays to her strength, which is dry humor. It's not a work of great literature by any means, but it's a fun read and would make a great vacation book.
