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.

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.
I love paranomal thriller/horror novels. Favorite authors are Molloy Harper, Laurell K Hamilton, Chlorie Neil, Sheryln Kenyon & Steven King
All of Molly Harper's books are great and they grab your interest right away and keep you interested and laughing all the way through.
This book was fun to listen to.
That the supernatural creature who lead the attraction was feminie and the author didn't emasculate the male character while doing this.
Yes, I would listen to this audio again. It is the sequel to How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf, so the characters and setting are familiar.
This series reminded of Charlaine Harris' Aurora Teagarden series which I enjoyed very much.
Amanda breathes life into each character in this audio presentation. As she reads, I am seeing the book as a movie in my head. Thanks Amanda: I love your work.
Oh, yes. I couldn't stop myself from listening to this audio until the end.
The humor and the excellent narration
She seems to bring her own sense of humor to the storytelling and, if possible, makes it even funnier.
I love this series because it is funny and smart and the audio performance is perfect. I look forward to more books by this writer. I hope she is not done with this series. I want to hear more from these characters!
Amanda nails the characters on the head bringing them to life as I listen. She matches the author's humor and the story flows well.
You will be so at home with these characters you will swear there really are werewolves living amonst us!
This is a must listen and is pure entertainment You won't want to quit listening. I was dissappointed when it was finished. I wanted more!
No. I will listen to the other book that goes with it.
Yes They are fun to listen to.
Her performance was good.
This was my second favorite book of all time so far, with audiobooks.
This was my second favorite book, with
Yes I have and it's still just as good as her other ones. She does great voice inflections and makes the character truely different so there is no confusion.
This book made me laugh very much. My husband was dragged along for this long car trip and I made him listen to it with me. He got just as much into it that he made me wait for him to finish it. He is usually all about politics and serious fiction, but he couldn't help get sucked into this hilarious romantic comedy.
I love Audible.... Someone reading to me all day while I'm working, driving, cooking, etc. Amazing.... I wish every book was this way. I finally get a chance to be involved in literature without reading the same chapters over and over and still not completing them. I must admit although I love classics.... Molly Harper is sooooo funny to me right now. Perfect answer for a stressful day!
Molly Harper has a wonderful way of describing and developing characters.... it's not only unique & smart..... But unbelievably fun to listen to! Thank You!
The change in her voice for the description of other characters ....
Everytime Maggie and Nick Go back and forth verbally....lol
I loved this book, listened to it all day till it was done.... laughed all the way through it and almost cried when I realized it was over! Thank you for a wonderful Saturday .....
I kind of lost interest about half way through the book and I didn't finish it.
Not sure, something Stephen King.
Like I said it was slow.
