The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper-a review
THE ART OF SEDUCING A NAKED WEREWOLF (Naked Werewolf #2) by Molly Harper
THE ART OF SEDUCING A NAKED WEREWOLF is the second instalment in Molly Harper’s Naked Werewolf series. Stepping back to the first book “How To Flirt With a Naked Werewolf”, the book titles are a reflection of some of the content of the stories. Laughing at their ridiculous circumstances, the werewolves of Grundy Alaska find themselves in the precarious position of human nudity whenever they shift from wolf, and once in awhile, there happens to be an audience. This storyline follows Maggie Graham, whom we were first introduced to in the previous book.
Maggie Graham is the new pack alpha. Elected into the position when her brother Cooper stepped aside, Maggie knows it will be difficult, especially when all the eligible males come looking for a mate and Maggie is one of the few remaining females available. Wanting to keep the shifter line alive, Maggie considers her options, but when a nerdy yet sexy full human comes to their small town, Maggie is experiencing jealousy and emotional turmoil when ever another woman is in his presence. Could this human be Maggie’s future mate?
Nick Thatcher is a researcher- a self-professed nerd and a reluctant Trekkie. Hoping to discover the truth behind the myth surrounding supernatural beings and shape-shifting wolves, Nick finds himself in Grundy Alaska, chasing reports and sightings about giant wolves. And when the beautiful Maggie Graham tells him it is time to leave, Nick is determined to stick it out to the very end, even if it means, giving up everything he has worked for. But the wolves have kept to themselves, and are not about to let a human reveal the truth about their lives.
Several males are vying for Maggie’s attention including a distant cousin and a new comer to the pack. But distant cousins have been stroked off the list of potential mates, and the new comer is looking like her best opportunity for mate selection. And of course there is always the human-who for some reason-makes her heart flutter and her stomach drop every time he is near. Not withstanding an assortment of accidents, near death experiences and gunfire, Maggie is uncertain as to why her pack has been threatened. But like everything in life, there are people who do not like her choices and another pack looking for new territory.
The storyline is slow to build, as is the relationship between Maggie and Nick. Plenty of background information from the previous storyline weaves throughout the novel, which is always good for new readers to the any series. The characters are quick with the one-liners and snappy come-backs. Told from Maggie’s perspective, the reader is along for the ride as she debates the pros and cons of a full-breed mate versus the love of her life, and suffering the well-meaning intentions of a very large extended family. Molly Harper writes with plenty of humor that will keep a smile on your face when a certain wolf takes a bite out of someone’s ass.
