This book was previously released with the second book in the series, Go Fetch, in a single volume called Magnus Heat. That is where I read all of the rave reviews. So I was prepared to really like this book. Well, even though I think this book is a very fresh take on wolf shapeshifters and their community...I just wasn't feeling this one. The beginning was a bit slow and I was actually bored until it got to page 200 something (ebook edition) where the bedroom scenes take over.
The characters weren't as realistic and didn't feel as "natural" as the characters that were created for Distressing Damsel. The constant "B----" name calling among the three girl friends became monotonous and annoying.
I gave the book a 3 star rating only because the book picked up towards the end and because I like Ms. Laurenston's writing in general. She has a very fresh perspective and a unique voice to her writing. I'm just not too impressed with Pack Challenge. On the other hand, there were very many 5 star ratings for the version of this book released under the title of Magnus Heat...Check that out before you make your final decision.
Pack Challenge is the hilarious story of Sara & Zach. Zach is a hunky alpha male shapeshifter, though he isn't the alpha of his pack...yet. Sara is a quirky, slightly psychotic (don't give her tequila!) woman who is also a shapeshifter...she just doesn't know it. Add in some great sidekicks, and you've got yourself one heck of a great story.
The rest of this series (originally released as Magnus Heat & Here Kitty Kitty) are being re-released by Samhain Publishing in the future. And I, for one, am anxiously awaiting the release dates!!
Sara Morrighan hasn't ever expected much out of life. Her parents died when she was young, and the animal attack that killed her father left Sara with a permanent limp and scarred face. . . and in her evil grandmother's care. Now in her late twenties, and her god-awful Gran buried for one year, Sara still doesn't expect a whole lot out of life. She has her two best friends, Miki and Angelina, and together they raise hell in their small Texas town. . . much to the chagrin of her employer and surrogate father, Marrec. But Sara has no illusions about a gimp like her finding love, happiness yadda, yadda, yadda. Until one day a biker gang breeze into town. . . with Zach Sheridan amongst them.
Zach awakens something primal and urgent in Sara. . . and she can't quite put her finger on it. He feels like home and when she's with him, it's she's waking up from a long sleep. But those feelings will get a cripple like her into trouble, hopes up and dashed. So Sara does what any self-respecting woman would do to the man she's attracted to. . . she's mean to him.
Do you know why clichés are so annoying? Because they're often true. Take the oldie (but a goodie) `Never judge a book by its cover'. That old chestnut is a pain in the ass because it's actually a damn good piece of advice. . . and should be taken in conjunction with Shelly Laurenston's book, `Pack Challenge'.
Judging by the shonky front cover, I thought this would be a throw-away erotica read. A pretty reasonably priced Kindle e-book (roughly $4 on Amazon) that would fulfil all smutty expectations, if no literary ones.
Oh, how wrong I was.Read more ›
