Pack of Lies - Book Review

Paranormal romance is hot -- in many senses of the word. I can't turn around without tripping on a new paranormal tale. Usually it's vampires or demons that take the fore but there are the occasional werewolf book such as Vanessa Vaughn's Pack of Lies.

The story of Jack, a human attacked by a werewolf who survives and finds himself infected, and Marcus, the alpha wolf that attacked Jack, Vaughn explores group dynamics (of Marcus's pack), submissive/dominance (in the animal and human kingdoms), and some raw, hot, sex. As to be expected from that set-up, there's a lot of tension between Jack and Marcus and some hot animalistic man-on-man lovin'. Vaughn doesn't pull any punches when it comes to the sex. She writes some eye-searing passages that will get your pulse pounding.

Only available as an eBook (not my favorite format), get this via Amazon.

Editor's Note: A little change in how things are done for this edition - you'll notice there are no "Top 3" picks - due in part to the holiday I ended up being extremely short on judges and I didn't have enough for fair voting. So instead, I expanded my "Featured Post". (If you'd like to volunteer to be an occasional judge for e[lust], just email me, Lilly, at questions.e.lust @ gmail.com) Also, please be sure to check out the new summer schedule
in effect until the 20th edition.

Why Pride is Still Important
- When someone tells me that they don't think Pride is necessary, I can't help but believe that they go through life with tunnel vision. I live in New York where for the most part I can walk around being a big ol' queen and I'll make it home alive, but there are people who live in places where they can't. Even here in New York you'll get called a faggot from time to time by passing cars or groups of punks, and even here in New York I hear stories of people getting the shit kicked out of them just because they were gay.

Fantasies and Condoms
- Our culture has created a narrative in which sex only feels good and looks sexy if no one is protected. We're all suffering from this narrative, but sex workers are probably suffering the most.

Some days we need a little hope
- I encourage you to practice random acts of kindness that could be worthy of inclusion on the site (GivesMeHope.com). Be nice, be caring, let your heart open up just for the sake of bringing someone some happiness or comfort. Do you know how good it feels to just give?
