Pack Challenge (Magnus Pack Series #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.

I absolutely loved this book!! It was awesome. I enjoyed how the main character was incredibly tough and not perfect, like a lot of main characters tend to be. This is an awesome book! I would recommend it to anyone!

Story line isn't too bad, but I was really turned off by the way everyone talked to each other. Maybe I'm old and unhip--and I'm fine with that--but I don't like to read about friends calling each other obscenities constantly and flipping each other off throughout the book. Wouldn't be friends with someone like that and wouldn't encourage my daughter to have friends like that. I won't read any more of her books.

I bought this book hoping to have something to distract me while waiting for a doctors appt. but i soon found out that though i thought the book wasnt going to be as good as some of Laurenston's other work, this book was worse, it centered mostly around sex. Any other plot lines in the book came after sex or ended in sex. It was kind of annoying after a few chapters. The basic plot is that Sara has her life changed when a sex man enters her small town. She learns the truth of her family, how her parents really died and then she learns what she has now become

I wish I had of read this book in my local B&N before I added it to my NOOK. Because it's DEFINATELY not worth reading.. It took several pages in before the story even got somewhat intersting and even then I had to make myself continue reading it... They had 1 big fight scene and that was it. It's a book about pretty much NOTHING but them having sex. And I'm sorry but I want a good story to read NOT JUST sex. This is a book I would tell everybody save your money and get JR WARD (brotherhood series)and Laura Adrian (Midnight breed series)... 2 thumbs WAY DOWN !

New author for me....had never picked up her books, but glad I did. Great Paranormal Romance series. I got them all! Good series, but can be read on their own.

For me this was my first Shape Shifter story. I was worried that I wouldn't understand it but it was awsome. Not a detail left untold. It is about a very headstrong woman Sara that has two wonderfully difficult friends. When "THE PACK" drifts into town she is instantly drawn to Zach. Sara is a born Shape shifter but no one has ever told her about herself and everyone in the town has tried to protect her. When her grandmother, (her main protector) passes away Sara is left vunerable. Apparently there is another sort of "PACK" that is out to get her. Zach has to make a difficult decision and Sara is forced quickly into accepting and learning what she is and where she comes from. Sara was truly one of a kind. Her and her friends had me laughing during the entire story. The main male Zach was truly a man to be reckoned with. The short explanation on the back of the book did not do it justice at all.. But I'm super glad that I got it and read it.

First off, let me say gag! This book was very disappointing! I am thoroughly pleased that I only paid $3.59 for this NOOKbook. Pack Challenge had an 'okay' storyline, and I did catch myself chuckling a *very* few times.. But honestly this book was just crude. It showed female characters using language that embarrassed me and there was more sex than story. This is nothing more than a smut story. I don't think there was a whole conversation between any characters in the book that didn't involve the topic of sex. The novel had a very slow start, and by Chapter 3 or 4 - I was considering bailing on the whole book. The beginning jumps between Miki, Angelina, and Sara and it was hard to keep them separate. When a book introduces new characters, I prefer them to establish who each one is before jumping into a 3 page he said/she said commentary where the reader has no idea who is saying what. This book could've had the potential to be a great story; the main characters parents were killed in a horrible accident, she had to live with her nut-so grandmother, she never 'fit in', grandmother dies and she finds out the truth about who she is. Sadly, 'who she really is' is really a sex-addicted arrogant woman who was never taught manners. Needless to say, I won't be continuing this series. My Personal Ratings: Originality: 2/5 Plot: 2/5 Captivatingness: 0/5 Writing Style: 0/5 Must Read: 0/5

This is a terrific book. The characters drag you in and take you on a hillarious ride. This was one of the best books I've read in a long time. Over 300 pages. I immediately bought 2 more of the authors books. Well worth the money.

I love the characters in this book as well as the rest of the series. The witty lines between the brothers and their mates, crack me up. And the love scenes are too sweet. I have re read the series and still enjoy it from beginning to end. Shelly has a definite hit with this series. All her stories are worth a read.

While it connects characters to the pride series, you can read them by itself without getting lost. It also maintains the excellent style that you expect from this authors work. Please keep writing.

I enjoyed this story, but I was expecting more humor, along the lines of Ms. Laurenston's Pride series. This story has bikers, werewolves and lion shifters, what's not to love?

This was an excellent book and a fantastic beginning for the Magnus Pride series!  I love Shelly Laurenston's writing.  She writes with such humor!  Always a lot of laughter and wit. I'd recommend any of her books, but reading about Zach and Sara is a great way to get started on her shifter series!
