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. . . .
My Rating: 3 out of 5
This book was just ok for me. I did enjoy seeing the inside of the pack more and learning more about the attempted take over years before. The romance between Maggie and Nick was good, not great though. I had a hard time seeing Maggie as the fearful girlfriend as she was written to be such a hard ass most of the time. It just wasn't convincing to me. I also thought the ending wasn't very convincing. I can't imagine Maggie leaving the pack with the other Alpha while she goes on her honeymoon. Especially while things are so new and all. Just all around disappointing ending. Decent read thought and if you enjoyed book 1 and wanted to see more of the characters it's worth the read. Just not as good as the first.
