“Kalen Black is a perfect dark hero.” ~Under the Covers
The Alpha Pack has quickly become one of my favorite shifter series! The characters are all unique, interesting and sexy in their own way. The world and how it integrates shifters that have certain special abilities is fantastic. And the stories in each book always keep me on toes.
I should warn you that I have a soft spot for this man. Kalen Black is a perfect dark hero. I fell in love with him from the very beginning and I’ve been dying to read his story! First of all, he’s a panther. Score two thumbs up for him on the sex appeal department. On top of that, he’s a sorcerer. That combines two of my favorites! Oh yeah, and he’s got the tall, dark and goth look going for him. He’s dangerous, he’s a bad boy, the one you want to fix.
Obviously I recommend reading this series in order, including the novella, but we were left with Kalen wanting to protect Dr. Mackenzie from an evil fae that had gotten inside her head, and the only way to do that was to put himself on the receiving end of the evil fae’s mental influence.
This was hard to read for me. Loving Kalen as much as I do, it was hard to see him struggle with the Unseelie King’s influence. But then he also showed why he’s made of awesome. He is one of the strongest characters in this series. I love him, I love his strength, his love for his mate. His protective side and his animal side. *sigh* I just have a crush on him.
Dr. Mackenzie is no pushover either, she’s amazing. Perfect for Kalen. She’s a strong female who can go after what she wants but who can also stand on her own two feet and face the world. Whether that be alone or to protect the ones she loves.
Now as far as what happens in the story… my lips are sealed. Because so much happens!!!! And I wasn’t expecting a lot of it, but loved every single minute of it, every event and every twist.
This book was action packed and smexy packed. You will fall in love with Kalen if you weren’t already.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
