Description: 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.
My Thoughts: This was a fun romance with shapeshifters. Sara and her two best friends - Angelina and Miki - are entertainly quirky characters. Angelina is a fashionista, lovely, and men follow her in droves. Miki is a very intelligent, paranoid conspiracy theorist. Sara is the balance. She thinks of herself as a Golden Retriever. She is the loyal and the sane one. Except, all of a sudden she is getting very aggressive.
Zach comes to town with his pack because Sara's hated but extremely protective grandmother has died. Sara is in danger from the Pride that killed her mother and father. Sara doesn't know that she is a wolf and potentially an alpha female wolf. Zach just wants to protect her at first. He has no intention of finding a mate. But Sara irritates her way into his heart. She is equally irritated by him. She doesn't want to fall for a biker dude and risk her heart when she knows he will be leaving.
While keeping Sara out of danger the two fall in love. This was an entertaining romance and quite hot too. I recommend it to lovers of shapeshifter romances.
"We're not having this discussion anymore."This book is followed by Go Fetch! which is Miki's story and Here Kitty, Kitty! which is Angelina's story.
"Is this you being all in charge?"
"Where you are concerned, I am in charge."
"Are you happy in your land of delusions? Are you king there?"
Zach had to work hard not to laugh.
