Goodreads Blurb: 
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. . . .
Darcy's Review:
While I enjoyed this book, I didn't like it as much as the first one. I really missed the crazy towns people of Grundy. It helped that we did get to see lots more of the crazy pack that the werewolves belonged to. I also had reservations about this book due to Maggie. She did not come across as likable at all in the first book, so I wondered how I was going to handle reading a full book about her. While I never warmed up to her to the level I did with Mo, I did end up liking her.

I think the appeal of Maggie is her gruff, take no crap personality. So some of the funnest scenes of the book was where she got roped into being all girlie and had girlie thoughts. She was just so uncomfortable and would even chastise herself in her head.

I loved how she fought her attraction to Nick and how the geek in him would turn her on. The talks about Star Trek, Star Wars, and how even when he would just "talk smart" made her go all gooey and she wasn't sure what to do.

What I didn't enjoy so much was the "trouble" that happened to the pack and Maggie. The aspects of them did make sense within the storyline, but for me those were the boring parts. I did like the resolution that happened, I think it was the best that could happen for everyone involved.

I would love to see more books in this series, the remote setting and quirky characters keep me wanting to know more!!
