Baring It All
Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stone’s throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valley’s 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 can’t seem to convince Nick to leave . . . and even worse, she can’t 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 can’t 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. . . .
This one surprised me. I didn’t expect to love this as much as “How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf”. In the first book, Maggie came off as a brat who, while being a bit amusing, just annoyed me. Now as alpha, Maggie has grown and matured … a little. She’s still the sassy, smart mouth we all came to know and love, just less bratty and immature.
Nick was an adorable addition who was perfect for Maggie. He’s able to put up with her wise cracks, and is determined enough to not let her run away from him and her feelings. Maggie’s romance, while adorable, played a secondary role. What was at the forefront of the story was Maggie herself. It was about her, how she dealt with the pack, life and just her everyday (and not-so-everyday) craziness.
A hilarious read, I couldn’t stop myself from laughing at almost every other page. Harper’s writing was witty without being overdone. Definitely a great follow-up book. A quick, easy read, this book is perfect for anyone in the mood for a funny, paranormal romance.
Everything can be made better with a good book or some relaxing knits. 😀 Find me on IG @kimberlyh12 or on Twitter @enervated.
