Marissa Boyd finds herself drawn into a world she can never be a part of, complete with an Alpha wolf who takes whatever he wants. And he wants her.
Marissa Boyd knows, as a non-shifter, she doesn’t belong in Pack territory. She braves a visit to attend her sister’s mating ceremony and meets the shifter who will change her entire life and beliefs.
Gage Wolf knows Marissa is hiding a pained past. As Alpha, he’s used to protecting his Pack. Marissa challenges his authority like no one he’s ever met before. His desire to claim her is strong and his wolf won’t be denied. He’ll have her as his mate even if he has to fight to teach her the meaning of belonging to an Alpha. Even if it is Marissa’s feelings of not being good enough for him that he must battle.
4 out of 5 (very good)
Pack Alpha is the first book in the Were Chronicles and tells the story of Gage, the Pack Alpha of the title, and Marissa Boyd, a non-shifting shifter who is the sister of a member of Gage's Pack. The whys and wherefores of how her sister came to be in Gage's Pack is explained in the book, so I won't rehash. All I will say is that Marissa is essentially a lone wolf, and not all by choice. Marissa has to face an awful truth in that the world is not as she always thought it. With Gage wanting to be by her side, with the truth set her free, or break her?
This is very well written, with some excellent, soul destroying, parts about how Marissa feels with her wolf trapped inside. Gage is well developed, with full on protective Alpha instincts that roar whenever he thinks Marissa is in danger.
I personally would have preferred to find out a bit more about Marissa and Emily's old Pack, and why Brandon came back after all this time, but on the whole, there was everything in this book you could wish for - including some steaming sex scenes.
Definitely recommended and a good start to a new series.

She has been writing since she was a teenager and still loves everything to do with the paranormal. Her stories and characters all have a place in her heart. She loves the alpha male, the dominant werewolf, or the Master vampire which find their way in most of her books.
