Pack #2: The Cravingby Jason Starr
Synopses & Reviews
"Jason Starr is hypnotically good." -Lee Child
When Simon Burns is fired from his job without warning, he takes on the role of stay-at-home dad for his three-year-old son. But his reluctance pushes his already strained marriage to the limit. In the nestled playgrounds of the Upper West Side, Simon harbors a simmering rage at his boss's betrayal.
Things take a turn when he meets a tight-knit trio of dads at the playground. They are different from other men Simon has met, stronger and more confident, more at ease with the darker side of life- and soon Simon is lured into their mix. But after a guys' night out gets frighteningly out of hand, Simon feels himself sliding into a new nightmarish reality.
As he experiences disturbing changes in his body and his perceptions, he starts to suspect that when the guys welcomed him to their "pack," they were talking about much more than male bonding. And as he falls prey to his basest instincts, Simon must accept that werewolves exist if he is to turn the tides of his fortune...

A LUST FOR LIFE
Manhattan thrives on desire—the longing for a better apartment a higher-paying job fame. Simon Burns ought to know, since he nearly lost it all.
Just when he thought hed hit rock bottom, Simon found a group of friends, daytime dads like himself. But there was something off” about Michael, Charlie, and Ramon, and Simon found himself slowly changing into the kind of man hed given up trying to be a long time ago—and rediscovering the most primal of hungers. There were nights he made constant love to his wife, nights he roamed the city streets, nights he doesnt even remember. And its one of those blackouts thats going to come back to haunt him.
For Simon isnt the man he once was. In fact, hes not really a man at all anymore. Hes a member of the pack. And once youre in, its impossible to get out....
