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.

Molly Harper has done it again with this witty story of hard-ass Maggie. She thinks she's the big, bad she-alpha, until she get knocked on her sometimes furry butt by the gorgeous Nick Thatcher, the HUMAN who wants to tell the world that he has found a real live werewolf. I love Molly's stories. Her snarky, witty sense of humor is a great escape when things get tough and I need a laugh. I never even hesitate to hit the "add to cart" button when I see a new book by Molly, and it is a real pleasure to find Amanda Ronconi's name a the narrator. I think Amanda does a great job of portraying the characters Molly Harper has written for us to enjoy. Thank you Audible for bring us Molly Harper.
NOTE: Do not eat or drink when listening to Molly Harper's books unless you enjoy snorting your snack out of your nose when you start laughing. I am telling you from personal experience. Also a full bladder is another thing you want to stay away from before reading.......need I say more?
Knows her stuff
I really love the humor and the wit that Molly puts into all of her books including the Nice Girl Series too. I found myself laughing out loud like a fool because of the stuff that the characters say. I think that you should read ???How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf??? first before you read this book. It is excellent as well. I found myself truly enjoying Maggie and how she handles the world. The narrator for all of Molly???s books is wonderful also. It really doesn???t get much better than these books.

Molly Harper’s writing is snarky, funny, witty, and a joy to sit back and listen to. I was a bit worried about the book being from Maggie’s point of view as Maggie comes off as a rather flat hard-ass character in How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf, but fifteen minutes into the audiobook, I knew I was not going to be disappointed. This book paces better than How to Flirt. We understand the main conflict immediately, and Nick enters Maggie's life almost from the first part of the audiobook. And then there’s Nick himself – a tall, sexy, educated, blond-haired, blue-eyed, bearded Viking look alike (mentally, I pictured Jax Teller from Sons of Anarchy, but with glasses). A multimillionaire, self-hating Trekkie with family issues of his own, and a passion for werewolves.
Another thing this book had on How to Flirt is a few good mysteries, which is not something I expect from this author – she’s hilarious, so I read for the comedy (and there’s plenty) but not for the twists and turns. This audiobook contains at least two “Oh!” moments - when the audiobook presents enough suspects with enough motives that you don’t see it coming, but there is also enough foreshadowing specific to the perpetrator that you kind of should have. The result is that when the book lets the cat out of the bag, you actually, audibly, say “Oh!”
All of Molly Harper’s audiobooks, including this one, are narrated by Amanda Roncini. Her voice is perfect for the part. It’s bratty, snarky, and bit tom-boyish even. It’s not just that she reads the story with great snark. She knows how to read comedy, how to carry punch lines so they hit home.
I love books, it's my great escape.
Molly Harper does it again...It's a hit with me. This story is fun, light hearted and has some very sexy moments. A great Story overall.
Say something about yourself!
I LOVE MOLLY HARPERs BOOKS. AND I REALLY LIKE AMANDA RONCONI AS A NARRATOR. THIS BOOK WAS GREAT BUT IT WASNT AS GOOD AS THE FIRST ONE. I STILL THINK IT IS WORTH LISTENING. THERE IS MORE GOING ON IN THIS STORY COMPARED TO THE FRIST. I WILL BE LISTENING TO THIS BOOK AGAIN .
This was a mostly fun return to the quirky environs of Grundy, Alaska, but it also felt a bit repetitious in terms of the conflicts and schticks. I felt rather sorry for the hero, a good-natured nerdy doormat who is repeatedly courted then rejected by the indecisive but snarky protragonist, who is the younger sister of the first book's werewolf hero.
In a storyline that focuses as much on werewolf politics as the reluctant romance between an Alpha female werewolf and a human scientist, the heroine is repeatedly stalked and attacked by unknown assailants...and decides not to report the attacks for fear of "worrying" the others in her clan, and making herself look weak. No, it just made her look stupid.
Not a bad listen on a long drive, but it didn't really measure up to the first book.
Not being a sci-fi or fantasy reader much any more, have no idea why I got The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf. But sooo glad I did. It's not often a book makes me laugh, but this one had me grinning and chuckling from page one, with endearing characters and a plot that kept me washing dishes way past the time they were clean. What an imaginative, believable and truly intriguing werewolf world she's created. A delightful, very well written and narrated book.
As always Molly Harper’s books are wonderful and made even better by the awesome Amanda Ronconi as narrator. I loved all of the Nice Girls books, And One Last Thing, and now both of the Naked Werewolf books. In fact as much as I love Jane I have to admit the Werewolf books have stolen my heart. How to Seduce a Naked Werewolf focuses on Maggie, Cooper’s sister. Maggie has become pack leader and this book revolves around her and her love life and issues as Alpha of the pack. I liked How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf more but this book was really enjoyable and a great addition to my library. And don’t worry if you were fans of the first book you still get a little taste of Mo and Cooper (though not as much as I would have liked to see). If you have read the first Naked Werewolf book this one is a must, if you have not read the first book run (don’t walk) to buy the first one and read it then come enjoy this one. The story line was interesting and as always with Molly Harper very funny. Love the book and love the narrator. I would give this series, author and narrator 10 stars if I could. I would love for another book in this series, possible another one with Mo and Cooper as the focus.
Im a MA in Theatre and love a good story.
I want to start this review off by saying I love Molly Harper's writing. It's witty and sarcastic in just the right places, and deviant enough to make me wish for more. It's light reading, so don't expect too much other than a wonderful ride in a quirky female's perspective.
That said, the main thing missing from the story is depth on the part of the male love interest. Harper's guys tend to be well, for a lack of a better description, Disneyish; the handsome prince (or rather, vampire or werewolf) that shows up, is cute, and immediately falls for the leading lady whether he or she likes it or not. Gabriel the vampire was a bit like this but Nick has it bad - I found myself a little shocked when he pulled the L word out so early.
The book was a bit predictable too, but then, most books like this are. But I couldn't just give this book 3 stars - the wording is just too like my own and had way too much fun listening to someone who actually talks like I do. Its the same issue I had with Jane from "Nice Girls..."
4 stars for this snarky sequel
The story line was very good, kept me guessing until the end. A lot of humor woven into the mystery made the overall story very good. Performance was great! Made me want to listen to all of her other books.
