Recycled Review: Pack Challenge (Magnus Pack #1) by Shelly Laurenston

What's an Alpha Male to do when he meets the Alpha Female of his dreams? Step one, hide all sharp objects. All Zach Sheridan ever wanted was to become Alpha Male of his Pack and be left alone. What he definitely didn't need in his life was some needy female demanding his attention. What he never saw coming was the vicious, scarred female who not only demanded his attention but knew exactly how to get it. Sara Morrighan knew this was the best she could expect from her life. Good friends. A nice place to live. And a safe job. But when Zach rode into her small Texas town with his motorcycle club, Sara knew she wanted more. She knew she wanted him. But after one sexy encounter with her dream biker, everything is starting to change. Her body. Her strength. That new thing she's doing with the snarling. Even her best friends are starting to wonder what's going on with her. But this is only the beginning. Sara's about to find out her life was meant for so much more. And Zach's about to find true love with the one woman who makes him absolutely insane. Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, and strong violence.

This review originally published March 14, 2011. These were the first Shelly Laurenston books that I ever read. They are hilarious as all of her books are. I highly recommend reading them.
Review

Sara has lived her whole life thinking she was just your normal human. She always felt a bit different but never really knew why. All that changes when Zach and his fellow bikers roll through the little Texas town she has known as home for most of her life. Zach is a member of the Magnus Pack. Sara’s parents were both members of this pack before they were killed. She has never known about any of this because her grandmother blamed the pack for her mother’s death. In an attempt to be mean and spiteful Sara’s grandmother made sure she never knew what she was. After the grandmothers death the Magnus Pack has finally shown up in this small Texas town to protect and claim one of their own. The lion shifter pride that is responsible for Sara’s father’s death has also shown up on Sara’s doorstep to finish what they started twenty years ago, to kill her too.

Sara and Zach have an intense attraction from the very beginning of the book. They also deny their attraction for each other from get go. Sara has help with her attraction acknowledgement issues, their names are Angelina and Miki. These are the three women you want in your life as your besties for those drunken brawls at a honky-tonk on a Southern Saturday night. This book is not only heavily sexed it is hilarious. The camaraderie between Sara, Miki and Angelina is fabulous. Zach clues in early on that he has his hands full with not only the crazy female that is Sara, but her female sidekicks.

I can honestly say my only disappointment in this book was the fact that I was half way through it before Sara and Zach FINALLY got sexed. I went into this book expecting sex by the ton. I got what I was looking for (hot sexed up book) it just took some time getting there. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. The two characters in Go Fetch have large supporting roles in this book. I also love where the title for book two comes into play in the first book. Miki is a NUT!

Gay Romance
