Pack Dutton: Part 1 by Megan Cain

Pack Dutton: Part 1

by Megan Cain


Book 1 in the Pack Dutton Series

Biology’s a bitch, and I’m the punchline.

I spent the first eighteen years of my life thinking I was a beta. But when my omega designation hit, my uncle had already sold me to a cult of alpha worshiping psychos. When their leader decides to claim me as his fifth wife, I realize I’m never getting out. Until my saviors appear in the form of an FBI pack that raids the compound and saves me. Crew, Rhett, Kellan, and Jude aren’t what I expected, but they might be exactly what I need to survive the new world I’m thrown into. Omega rights are being decimated by new laws at every turn, and when you’re a trophy for the highest bidder, there’s no such thing as playing fair. But the one thing I am sure of? Pack Dutton is playing for keeps, and I’m the prize.

Before I begin, I would like to thank Hannah McBride and her team for sending me an arc of her very first omegaverse book, Pack Dutton: Part One, in exchange for a fair and honest review.

It's a fact that whatever Hannah McBride writes, I will read.

I fell in love with her Blackwater Pack Series, and her Mad World series, so when she announced she was released her first omegaverse book, I knew I had to read it.

And how fitting it is that the first omegaverse book she wrote is my first ever omegaverse read.

I know, I know.

What took me so long?

Before I get into the book, and Hannah's writing, I admit that I had no real idea what omegaverse was. I assumed that is was pretty much the same as shifter romance, just darker.

So Pack Dutton was an educational experience for me. Opening up this arc had me running to google and deep diving what omegaverse is, terminology and everything it entails. Although, you don't have to do this. Hannah has a handy terminology guide before the book begins to explain things to us newbies.

Curiosity got the best of me, which led to me even looking at diagrams of alpha/omega reproductive organs.

Yup. That's me. Spending my Saturday night looking at artists depictions of knots.

So after some research that will probably flag me as a weirdo, I really dived into this book.

I loved it.

While it took me a bit to get used to the world's dynamics, and how animalistic human's act in omegaverse, I couldn't help but still be drawn to the story. Despite the difficult subject matter at the beginning of this book, Hannah does a great job making sure that every horrible act serves a purpose.

It's not there for shock value.

It adds to the story arc, and character development.

While the story was great, and the world building and politics was interesting, what I really loved was the characters, and the romance. Each character felt unique, and had their own strengths and skills they added to the pack. They were all likeable, and best of all, absolutely committed to making sure Hazel felt safe, secure, and respected. That everything that happens is consensual, and her choice.

Just because she is an omega, doesn't mean she doesn't get a choice, and I love that.

I enjoyed Hazel's bond with each of the guys separately, as well as a whole. I really liked that two of the men in the pack are an established couple, and that the love and desire they have for one another doesn't change just because Hazel is there. It's all just one big lovefest!

A big, insanely hot lovefest.


If I knew how hot knotting was, and the dynamics of the omegaverse, I would have got into the genre a long time ago.

Hannah McBride has yet to disappoint me. Her writing continues to be wonderful and entertaining. I'm thrilled that I got to experience my first omegaverse book with Hannah's work, because truly, she is a great writer. If you love omegaverse, if you love sexy reverse harems, and dark romance, you will adore this book!



Coming soon after release March 1st, 2024!
