Squicky buddy read with Anne. So what are you waiting for? Go and read her review now!A word of warning: explicit sex scenes will be discussed in this review. If that makes you uncomfortable either don't read "incriminating evidence #3" or just walk away from this review and quietly close the door behind you. I'd advise you to stick around (believe me, it's worth it) but hey, it's your life.So. I've read a lot of crappy books in my life. But let me tell you, this is majorly craptastic. It gives [...]
Pack Challenge is book one in Shelly Laurenston’s Magnus Pack series. If I could only use one word to describe this book it would be fun. This book was an absolute delight to read. Filled with witty banter, sarcastic undertones, an ill-tempered shape-shifter who is in over his head and a super bitchy heroine – what is not to love?????Sara Morrighan lost her mother as an infant and then at yet another young age her father was killed when they were attacked by mountain lions. Incidentally, thi [...]
Yes, this book made as much sense as that picture.Okay, we have a woman in a small town in Texas (yay, Texas!) who: is a werewolf who doesn't know she's a werewolf, living in a town of werewolveswas attacked by mountain lions in her youth, so she's scarredhas two best friends who act like 12-yr old girls trying to be badassworks in a motorcycle shop and is surrounded by bikerslistens to German techno musicgoes to raves - wearing camos and a cowboy hat.Ooookay. Of course a pack of werewolves who [...]
Buddy read with o0Sarah0o! Check out her review HERE.K. I read Go Fetch! a little while ago, and sort of thought it was decent, except for some of the squicky sex scenes. But I kept wondering if I should have started with the first book.t, you know?So, here we are.The good?I finished it quickly, which means I thought it was a very readable book. Laurenston is a talented writer, in that she can keep my eyes moving along the page. I also like the way scars or 'handicaps' are treated in this author [...]
”You belong to me, but I belong to you. Even before you marked me, I belonged to you… as much as it annoys the shit out of me.”Okay, I give inI'm a sucker for a shifter story. I love the whole dynamic of the mate for life thing, there's almost always a great storyline, and most importantly they are always hotter than hell. That whole claiming thingts me every time. This story was no different.This story starts out with Sara, drunk in a bar, stirring up her normal amount of "Drunk-Sara" tro [...]
This book wasn't bad, but it felt like a lot of the same thing - sex, sex, and more sex.Unlike the characters in this book, my world was not rocked by their constant world-rocking sex and physical attraction. The "romance" comprised mainly of the main characters' finding each other insanely hot and rip-your-clothes-off desirable. I just couldn't see what they saw in each otherother than their emphasis on the other person's being a "hot piece of ass." Most of their scenes (once they got past the [...]
The reader meets the very feisty Sara Morrighan with her girlfriends at a bar, where Zach Sheridan, Beta of the Magnus Pack, has ends up saving her from an attack. Sara has facial and physical scarring from an attack by a Pride that left her parents dead, so Sara has learned to make due with Mr. Right Now rather than hold out hope of some happily ever after.But there is an attraction between Zach and Sara, and when they become intimate, it begins to reveal things about Sara’s true nature. The [...]
Ok. Ummm No. I think the polite way to put it is that this was an "interesting take" on the werewolf theme. I wanted to like Sara, but it was hard to. She was all over the place but I settled for just not liking her. Zach didn't even seem to like her, and I had to agree with him but then he went and fell in love with her, so I was left by myself on the not-liking front.Lots of disrespectful chit-chat that is more annoying than it is cute. Lots of rough-ness, especially rough sex. It felt out of [...]
Eh. There are reasons I'm not a huge PNR fan, and this book contains more than a couple of those reasons. Some PNR kicks it up a notch and actually gives us a bit of plot and character development along with the sexy times. And some doesn't. This book falls into the latter.I find it to be a major cop out when characters are so crazy sexually attracted to each other because of their shifter half, even thought they don't know each other and/or can't stand each other. So they don't know squat about [...]
4 stars”You belong to me, but I belong to you. Even before you marked me, I belonged to you… as much as it annoys the shit out of me.” Sara’s new found freedom from her crazy bitch grandmother; she is finding it harder and harder to enjoy her life. The pain in her leg is getting worse and the only way to remove the pain was to drink it away. The night she stuck her tongue down the throat of her “pretty man” set everything in motion that would change her life forever. Zach show up on [...]
I really, really disliked Sara! I don´t have a problem with alpha females in general, but she was over the top. Too harsh and too b!tchy (no pun intended) for my taste. I liked Zach a little better but, by the end of the book, I wasn´t so sure if he truly loved Sara. I don´t know, something about them didn´t "click" with me, and that´s a problem when it comes to a romance book.The story was easy to read, quick paced and funny (I even laughed out loud a couple of times), so I´m not giving u [...]
Pack Challenge is the book that pretty much began my intense stalkerish behavior of all things Shelly Laurenston/G.A. Aiken. Her books are bloody, snarky, and fun with kickass heroines and alpha heroes who are up to the challenge of holding on to an alpha female.I love a strong heroine and Sarah is the epitome of that. She’s broken physically but never gives up. She doesn’t wallow in pity over her injuries, the horrific pain she’s constantly in, or even her scarred face. She doesn’t take [...]
Zach Sheridan is more than stunned when he finds the girl he is looking for is a full body woman with attitude and no clue of what she is, a shifter. Zach is in line to become the Alpha of the Magnus Pack, and the last thing he needs is a distraction but every instinct he has is telling him to make Sara his and it is only a matter of time before he loses the fight he has internally telling him no.Loved this book, Sara is tough as they come having had a not so easy childhood with a crazy grandmot [...]
Hot book. The first in her "Pack" series.Sara is scarred from the attack that took her only remaining parent, her father, from her when she was 10. She's already figured out that no man will want a too-big, agressive, scarred woman as a wife. Good thing she's perfect to be an Alpha wolf's wife!Zach likes pushy women just fine screw that is. He's perfectly happy to run a pack and has no desire to find a mate, settle down, and raise pups. Good thing he's about to meet his dream woman. Now if only [...]
Who doesn't love some bikers, shifters and hot sex? nooot this girl lol
Wow! This book was a lot of fun to read and I just loved the interaction amongst the characters. Usually you have the scarred alpha male hero, so it was great to have a scarred alpha heroine. I found my self cheering for her character because even with her insecurities, Sara turned out to be one strong alpha girl. Sara also had two friends that were just laugh out loud funny at times. Miki is the genius and Angelina is the pretty one. Their books are 2nd and 3rd in the series. The characters are [...]
This book is a hot mess.I have never before encountered an author who creates such unlikable characters. Cripes!The first book I read by Shelly Laurenston was Beast Behaving Badly. The heroine was one of the most irritating, hyper, unlikable characters I've ever seen in a romance novel. (For the record, I thought the hero-polar bear was adorable, thank God).But that was before I read Pack Challenge. In this book, the hero, the heroine, and all her side-kicks, are equally horrible. The hero Zach [...]
I never expected a paranormal book to be this funny. This is one of the laugh out loud funny books I've read in a long time. The humor is adult and current. If you're offended by profanity then please do stay away from this book. The banter between the heroine and her two friends had me laughing so hard. That was quite an unexpected treat. This is a story about a female wolf shifter who is unaware of her heritage. She's the kind of heroine I love. Smart, feisty, strong without being a ball buste [...]
FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC! SCORCHING HOT EROTICA!This book was the greatest read, I haven't ever laughed so hard in my life from a book. I literally had tears running down my face at some of the interaction between Sara and her two friends along with the Magnus Pack. I was hooked immediately and couldn't put the book down. Sara and Zach's romance was perfect and their erotic scenes were totally HOT! I loved Sara's kick ass attitude and action and her friends were just as awesome. Zach made the perfect [...]
Originally posted on yareads, reviewed by Nichole.I don’t tend to like to give out 1 or 2 star ratings very often. In fact, I’m more apt to DNF a book before I’ll rate a book that low. While I technically did DNF this book around the 70% mark, there’s no way that I couldn’t give this book a one star. I was so outraged and offended…. pretty much deserved it.First of all, I want to say how excited I was for this series. I thought that it was going to be similar to the Psy-Changeling se [...]
^^SOCIALLY CHALLENGED!^^What a surprise Pack Challenge was, I thought I would kinda like it but I ended up liking it a lot. It won’t be for everyone, because the females are a little bit unrefined, and the story is far from spectacular. I did laugh though and I came to a realization, that I really enjoy my h/h unrefined (by unrefined I mean; brass, bold, and without polish).Sara has scars on her body and in her heart. She finds it hard to trust, and only has a handful of close friends. She los [...]
I've heard good things about her Dragon and Pride series. I'm going to check those out, but I'm definitely going to end my relationship with the Magnus Pack.
Great pacing, laugh out loud funny, insanely hot sex scenes, and some gruesome violence. Loved it.
Bloodthirsty, but full of fun and alpha shifting pnr yumminess. This one wont be for everyone- she says "bitch". alot.- but I'm def. sold on this author! :P
4.5 starsPack Challenge is a wicked, hilarious, sarcastic, raunchy romp of a read. It's the first book in a trilogy & the first Shelly Laurenston that I've read & believe me, I will definitely be reading more.Sara works at a chopper shop, chills with her outrageous & slightly psychotic pals Angie & Miki & is completely unaware of her unusual heritage. She is a slightly damaged, very aggressive, antagonistic girl who has no idea how attractive she is to just the right male. Za [...]
This was an unexpected find and a quick, easy read. Though the story was short, it didn't seemed rushed at all. I loved the characters and the interesting development of the story. In a nutshell, Sara is raised human by a local pack alpha--never knowing shifters exist. As she matures, her aggression as a (pack) leader becomes a very dominant emotion in her life. Unbeknownst to her, she has 3 different pack looking out for her well beingen there is a pride of lion shifters who want her dead. As h [...]
I simply loved this book, it has just about anything you want, friends, shape shifters, action, blood, humor, Hot Sex and a storyline to boot If you like your erotic with not as much sex as most this one is for you**Little spoilers below**I loved Sara, she has a sad start in life, with the scars to prove it, but she is tuff and loves bar fights, she has two friends thats just as tuff, Miki and Angie all three together they are a riot. Sara meets Zack in a bar, she is three sheets in the wind and [...]
#1 Magnus Pack seriesROFL funny, just as highly entertaining and enjoyable as the author's "Pride" series (also about shifters).In Pack Challenge, Sara is minding her own business, working at the chopper (motorcycle) shop & hanging out with her two outrageously funny friends.Once Zach and his biker pals roar into town on their motorcycles, Sara's life is turned upside down. Hilarity ensues, along with a very good plot. Can't wait to see what happens next.I think I'll buy the rest of Shelly L [...]
*Originally read 3/24/11 - 3/26/11**Reread 3/18/12*Hilarious! I'm so glad I got lured into rereading this series again.
Liked it but didn't love it the friends were a tiny bit over the top for me.
