Seb has some deeply-held beliefs (and prejudices) about shifters and while Happy for his friend, he doesn't want the same for himself. Tim wants a mate and a bond but hasn't found anyone yet. But when rogue shifters seem to linger around Jared's old flat that Seb now lives in, it's decided that the pair should pretend to be boyfriends to provide Seb some much-needed protection. But then feelings start to complicate things and bot Seb and Tim need to re-evaluate what they want.
This was fun and exciting from start to finish. As we've come to expect from Ms Jacobs' books, there's tons of scorching sex but also these guys have a lot of emotional depth to their characters. The pack structure and some of the characters in it were also mire prominent here and brought a nice background to the story. A worthy sequel to Bitten By Mistake, definitely goes on my re-read shelf.
The romance is another ‘pretend boyfriends’ plot, although different from book 1, with Seb firmly stating he didn’t want to become a shifter or end up in a mated bond like his bestie, Jared. He fears having the choice about his future taken away from him. Even so, Seb falls for Tim, who is already besotted with him, as they try to divert the rival pack’s attention away from Jared/Nathan and keep Seb safe. There’s plenty of action and suspense, along with some lust-filled steamy sexy times and some more tender moments for these guys.
Tim is such a calm and patient guy. He’s kind and restrained with Seb and my heart went out to him several times. Tim wants the happiness and love Nathan and Jared share, but is willing to accept being Seb’s friend if that is what Seb decides when their ‘fake relationship’ comes to an end. I adored his growly possessiveness and his care for injured Seb throughout. I especially loved the exciting climax of the story. Perfect for these guys!
Great writing and storytelling. I’m already looking forward to book 3—hopefully Alec’s story. (Although I’d be happy with Luke’s story, just saying!) Glad Alec was given page time in this story too.
Disclaimer: I assisted in the proofreading of this story.
Book two in this series follows Tim and Seb whilst also catching up with all the other characters from book one particularly Nathan and Jared. Tim is the packs mild mannered doctor and Seb is Jared's best friend. Now I must admit Seb just got on my nerves at the beginning of this book, I felt his reasoning for disliking shifters based on what he saw Jared go through in book one is weak at best and he continually hurt Tim. However, I did warm up to him as the story went on and he started to accept their connection for what it was. I absolutely loved Tim he's so kind, caring and good tempered until someone threatens Seb then he's all grisly, teeth baring, scary possessive shifter and it's fabulous!
'The growl he got in response made him look up. Tim stared back at him, lips parted and a hint of fang peeking out. Seb went hot all over. For a split second, he wondered how it would feel to have those teeth sink into his skin, claiming him…'
The book starts with Seb getting his front door scratched threateningly subsequently leading to Jared falling down the stairs in drunken fear and breaking his ankle. As a solution Alec one of the packs betas suggests Tim and Seb play fake boyfriends so Tim can protect Seb. As with book one one thing leads to another and they start having lots of hot nookie. Seb continues to be reluctant however to making any formal commitment.
“I’m not sure I can pretend to be with you and not fall in love with you for real.”
Secondary characters are brilliant as with book one and it's great to check in with them all. Mean old Alpha Newell from p-pack is back to his evil ways in this book and there's more rogue shifters to deal with.Read more ›
Here, with the Regent's Park series, the bonding comes when a pair are already sexually involved and its instant, whether they want it or not but it also doesn't automatically come with the person being bitten turning into a full shifter.
I also like the fact these books are set in London, although there's not really a lot of extraneous detail given to enforced that plot point, but the mention of Tesco Express always makes me laugh (although I'm a Sainsbury's girl myself).
The sex in these, driven as it is by hot wolf hormones, is always superbly done, there's nothing better than reading about two men who can't keep their hands off each other. Throw in emotional connections which allow them to sense their mate's thoughts and feelings and it just becomes all ends up awesome.
Really hoping book three will see Alpha Newall get his just deserts as painfully as possible and perhaps there's a wee spark between Alec and the rival pack's young gun Mark which we'll be reading about soon.
