Publisher's Summary

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.

Not enough romance but more than enough humor

I have put off writing a review on this book for a while now. I listened to it after devouring How to Flirt with A Naked Werewolf which I adored. I was not as enamored of this one, however I did like it.

First the not so good:

Molly Harper has a few issues and one of them is character development of her female leads. They tend to all be snarky, sarcastic, know it all's, in some cases to the point of frustration as with Maggie's character. I suggest not reading or listening to all of her books back to back. >.> Another issue that's less annoying, but noticeable is her books are full of pop culture references, which might date them.

Maggie's character is a bit hard headed, arrogant and generally not as smart as she thinks she is. There is a scene with her truck that solidifies the not smart comment, but I just had to remind myself that not everyone was taught by a woman that learned to drive a vehicle without brakes, but then I mutter'she knew enough to check her car afterwards?'

This book spends a lot more time on everything but the relationship between Maggie and Nick so the relationship feels forced and Nick doesn't feel very fleshed out.

Second the stuff that makes it worth your time:

There are many humorous moments in the book, quite a few that really made up for the annoyances I had. The story is entertaining and fun.

Where Molly Harper shines is her characters are funny, they can do some really silly things and have enough of a sense of humor about themselves to make the listener feel as if they can understand them and forgive them for being themselves. You want to follow them on their journey and you do end up rooting for them.

Amanda Ronconi is excellent. I really like how she voices these characters. My only issue is her male voices can be a bit off, but that's a minor complaint as her tone and the care she seems to have for the characters really make these books worth the listen.

smile a minute.....

Molly Harper is always funny, and I truly think she can pick me up, no matter what mood i am in. The Alaska werewolf series isn't as engrossing (for me) as the vamp series, but its still very much worth the listen. I listened to the Alaska were-series over the winter holidays, and was totally engrossed. Nick and Maggie hit the right note of innocent first love story and hot romance, sprinkled with a bit of family/pack angst. Maggie's internal struggle seemed spot on and very believable. Nick was humanly hot and down to earth. It was a great LOL ride.

I liked Maggie more, but not enough

*Sigh* I was already biased against Maggie from book 1.
Maggie was such a mean, angry, antagonist, petulant...I can really go on but I won't. I just pictured a woman who has the need to dominate everyone. CHYNA, THE WRESTLER.

In this book, we get to hear Maggie's voice. She is more warrior princess than disturbed fighter. I even like Nick, but Maggie's personality just dwarfs everything and everyone. She is alpha, responsible for protecting the pack etc. so now she is XENA WARRIOR PRINCESS.

Amanda Ronconi does well as always but it was hard to get over the distaste I had for Maggie. I do like her now, but her story wasn't as entertaining as her brother Cooper's book. But the again, this series isn't as entertaining as Half Moon Hollow. I will listen to book 3 next week though.

Molly and Amanda FTW

I could read everything these two collaborate on (that's not the right word, but you get the picture). Amanda was made to read Molly Harper.

Typical Molly Harper...maybe a bit slower

Maybe I'm just into the alpha male thing...and since this one had an alpha female it kind of threw me..but it wasn't as enjoyable as past MH books. It seemed a bit slow...a bit forced...but there were of course some awesome light moments and laugh out loud hilarity...but it was missing something.

Any other author and it would have been given 4-5 stars, but I expect more from Mrs. Harper....Amanda was great OF COURSE!

The story is a bit familiar but still fun.

If you could sum up The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf in three words, what would they be?

repetitious, funny and ok

Would you recommend The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf to your friends? Why or why not?

I Love Molly Harper. I have most of her books. This is the first one that left me a bit underwhelmed. It is not a bad book. I enjoyed it, but it seems too similar in plot to her last werewolf book to me. So this would not be the first book on my recommendation list, and I do highly recommend Molly Harper to my friends.

Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Amanda Ronconi is the best. I always enjoy her performance.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Of course I laughed, Molly Harper is funny!

Meh

Have you ever been so hungry and decided to buy your favorite meal and then you sit and get that first bite and it's just not what it should be?
I'm disappointed. I'm so used to laugh out loud when reading Ms.Harper's books that this one felt like a cold shover. Don't get me wrong, the story is not bad, it's just boring comparing to her other work and not at all funny . I hope she isn't losing her sense of humor. Reader is great as usual .

I still say I don't believe in Werewolves, but this was too funny (and could almost make you believe it). I caught myself more than one time laughing out loud. Will most definitely listen to it again. Molly Harper, great, funny story--Amanda Ronconi, you make listening to the books so much more enjoyable.
