Strength of the Pack (The Tameness of the Wolf, #1) - Kendall McKenna Holy hotness, batman. Weres as a recent (at least as known to mere humans) and open addition to the military, in theater, what a fantastic premise for a story. And fantastic this one was.Lucas is of the human variety, Noah is of the shifter kind. They both try to navigate this world in which they serve together, fighting off enemies of both two and four-legged creatures. They are two alphas trying to exert their dominance professionally, as well as within their growing relationship, while at the same time not overstep their bounds because of that very relationship.It's just plain fun to see the full gamut of reactions and interactions between all of the characters as they try to make sense of it all.There are a few miscommunications and frustrations, especially as they are both slow to realize what the other is thinking and feeling. Noah sometimes assumes, as evidenced in his actions, that Lucas interprets said actions in the same way he intends them. Not the case. And Lucas finds it difficult to discern if Noah's feelings are truly his own or are they all wrapped up in simply being a werewolf. The military setting is something I really like, the characters are well drawn, the humor is definitely there and the sex is fucking hot. It may be a cliche, but it's made hotter by the fact that they "wait" to fully express themselves until... well, I'll let you find out for yourself. I don't want to give anything away! I so enjoyed this one and already have the soon to be released sequel on my to-buy list. I think you will, too.Enjoy!!
