Pack Challenge (#1) 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.

Ren's Review:

This is the first book of Shelly Laurenston that I've read...

Zacharias Sherridan or Zach first meet her in pub. And surprised when she kisses him. Then he knows that she is drunk but Zach seems to not be able to forgot her. This lucky girl is Sara Morrighan, raised with her crazy grandma. Finally Sara is free from her, after she dies. Sara then lived at Marrec's place, a guy that act as her father, and her two crazy friends, the big mouth Miki and the sophisticated latina Angelina.

One day, some bikers group stop at Marrec' s place, and Sara realized someone is watching her. Yep, that "someone" is Zach, who she kissed when she drunk with tequila. Miki and Angelina sees him as "boyfriend material" for Sara, while Sara avoids him. Little does Sara know, Zach try to avoid her too, but can't help himself, since Sara "calls" to his beast...

Then we know, Zach is wolf shape shifter, and his bikers group is pack of wolf-shifter called Magnus Pack. Zach want to be alpha, since the previous Alpha, Yates controlled by his mate Casey, and Zach hate about that. Yates ask him to "watching and babysitting" Sara, since Sara is wolf shifter too, but she never realized. Sara has problem, her leg had a big wound and she limp. She always suffer for 20 years, and don't have confidence like her 2 friends. With help of Zach, finally Sara find her strength and know her true identity.. As an Alpha Female of The Pack.. But she must face the old enemy, enemy that killed her parents and maked her  suffer for 20 years...

Reading this book made my ears (and eyes) burn, literally.. So many curse and swear words, it made me cringe x_x..

The friendship between Sara, Miki and Angelina is harsh and crazy, but they understand each other. We know about Sara's pain, and how she can't walk properly for 20 years. And then when Zach makes her feel better, we will see the other side of Sara. From meek and weak to become strong. Zach is alpha to the core, try to avoid Sara so hard, but in the end he can't help himself to mark her and make Sara his mate. I love when their bantering each other and the sex scene between them is SMOKIN HOT!!

I try to see humor in this book, with so many crude word, it's not easy to find, but still I'm enjoy it :). This book is what I called "The first book in the series syndrome" so I don't expect more from this.

My favorite scene :

He saw the struggle on her face. Knew what she wanted to do. And
knew what she could handle. He expected her to walk away, and she
didn’t let him down. She walked away… for about five feet. Then, with a snarl, she spun back around and grabbed Casey from behind. One hand
in the woman’s hair, the other grabbing the denim jacket she wore. Sara snatched her off the bed and slammed Casey, face first, into the wall. She yanked her back, leaving a splash of blood on the white paint, and slammed her again. Then Sara threw her. Across the room and out the door, an arc of blood slashing across Marrec’ s bed. Zach heard Casey hit the wall with a sickening thud.

Yeah, you go girl!! :D

I LOVE Shelly's heroines. They are 100% bat crap crazy. Wait til you read some of the things Angelina does. HA! It involves a toilet seat or lid.
