From Goodreads: 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. . . .

What I Loved: If ever there was a book boyfriend for me, it is Nick! He is smart, geeky (talking Star Trek and may have invented a game similar to WOW-geeky), research nerd, and all around hottie (forgiving that blonde thing, I just ignored it)! I fell in love from the moment he hit the page and never looked back. Loved that he knew that he wanted Maggie from the beginning and never was ashamed of that. Oh sure, he was adorably awkward at times and sometimes blunt but they just added to his charm!
What I Liked: Maggie, which by the way was a big leap. I did not like Scrappy Doo much at all in the first book. This one she grew on me but it took awhile. Once she did though, I was really rooting for her and Nick. The side story, which I won’t giveaway, was done really well too. In a pack/tribe mentality type of way, I thought it rang true and the resolution was fantastic!
Why I gave a 3.75: I liked the first book a smidge more than this one so I had to rate them different. This one is going into the snort club too though and was a highly enjoyable read!
Who I would recommend it too: PNR readers who like the lighter fair and aren’t afraid to laugh!
