I fell for Tim pretty quickly but knew it was going to take a little more work for Seb to win me over. He puts up a good fight. Which is actually his intention. He doesn’t really like shifters to begin with. He doesn’t understand what happened to his bestie, Jared. But whatever freaky shifter magic turned his best friend into a bonded mate to a shifter scares him. He believes it is safer to keep them at a distance. But then he has an accident and needs looking after. Who better to do the job than the pack doctor! Why does he have to be so nice and sexy though? That’s a dangerous combination and when Tim is almost nothing like the shifter stereotype Seb despises, he wonders if perhaps he was quick and harsh to judge them. Maybe all shifters aren’t the same? Still…the one thing he knows for sure is he doesn’t want to be with one. Just because he likes Tim and Tim is different, that doesn’t mean anything. Right? Hmmmm, we shall see.
What's to like: The pack is back! We have plenty of Jared and Nathan, which made me a very happy reader, but we also get to know a few other pack members a bit closer. Some new faces are introduced and I enjoyed them all. Tim has a different beta than Nathan and though we saw him in the first book, his first impression isn’t the greatest. Alec is not perceived as warm or friendly, but that is through Nathan’s eyes. They have a history that I wish to unravel. I enjoyed seeing him with his defenses down around Tim. He’s hiding something and I want to know about it! Of course I loved Cam and was fascinated with how he runs his pack. Overall, it’s deeply developed but not overcomplicated.
What's to love: The connection is not instantaneous and rather lopsided, that is until eyes and hearts are opened. Sometimes it’s nice to have to hurdle obstacles to bring two hearts together. Tim wants Seb from the very beginning. He wants to take care of him but his instincts scream for him to tend to needs beyond the call of a doctor. He wants Seb. However, he respects Seb’s wishes, and repeated declaration that he does not wish to allow emotions to develop between the two of them. Whatever they need to do, they can do it as friends and Tim is adamant he can withstand the temptation of more. Then Seb becomes frustrated with his own rules and demands. He likes Tim. Tim likes him. Why can’t they play a little? It’s not all or nothing. Wait? Is it? No, if that’s the case, it must be nothing. He has plans for his future and it does not involve wolves. Then the rogue pack threatens his single weakness and it’s time for him to reevaluate his life choices. This time the bite is not an accident but the question is, who will deliver it?
Beware of: A stubborn and insensitive human lets his mouth overrun his arse. Even cute arses need to watch their tongue and manners. If Tim can forgive, then so can I. However, I imagine you will be a tid bit irked with our boy Seb as well.
This book is for: Paranormal lovers should definitely take note of this series if they haven’t yet. Start at the beginning though, it’s not a standalone.
I muddled through and pieced things together because we hit the ground running in Bitten by Design. Seb is Jared's BFF and took over his flat after he moved in with his bonded mate, Nathan. Tension is brewing between the P-Pack and Regent's Park pack with some rogue shifters thrown in to spice things up. Seb's caught in the crossfire so to speak and takes a header down the stairs when there's a scratch at his door. He lands himself in the hospital with a broken leg, wonky wrist and a verra attentive doctor.
Tim is the pack doctor and has a crush on Seb, so when he turns up hurt presumably by the rival pack he gets all possessive and protective. I love it when they get all"mine-y".
YERP! What I heart about shifters is even when they're not the alpha they're still kinda alpha with the growling and whatnot! Plus the whole "mates" thing, though Seb and Tim aren't fated mates which is at the tippity-top of my list, but they get close enough for me. Jacobs packed a whole passel of things I like including scenting, biting, marking and... uh... getting messy.
Tim likes it messy as does Seb. *eyebrows* The little gasping, half/broken sentence, begging had me squirming with delight and then Tim went and preened after marking his territory and... #DECEASED! I couldn't have asked for anything more but just to seal the deal Jacobs threw in the fake boyfriend trope! The pack decides since Seb wants to go home that it'd be best if Tim pretends to be his boyfriend because shifters all have a keen sense of smell. So... Tim and Seb have to really "sell" this boyfriends gig.
The only fly in the ointment is Seb keeps telling himself and saying out loud (which kinda made me want to staple his mouth shut) that he's not interested in being in a bonded mate relaysh. He's plenty attracted to Tim but he keeps hurting his feels when he says their relationship is temporary or faux or whatever which he seems oblivious to, but then proceeds to up the ante in their sexual relationship. The mixed signals thing got a little old and I wish he would've talked to Tim sooner, but that's really my only gripe.
When things ramped up with P-Pack is when I really invested in this series. There is still much animosity between the packs and I would like to formally request an enemies to lovers story featuring Alec and Mark, pretty please with glitter on top.
While I'm praying to the shifter gods to rain shifter hate sex confetti on me I'll continue to float around on the bonded mate fluff infused cotton candy cloud that is Tim and Seb and their HEA. Because it was adorbz, had some feels and hot all at once. Quite the trifecta there.
My first Jacobs was a rousing success and I'm hopeful there will be another Regent's Park Pack story because I like the way she writes pack dynamics and this relationship evolved convincingly. So I'd recommend this to shifter fans or those who enjoy a smuffy, low angst romance.

Although this was Sebastian and Tim's story, I was happy that we still got to see quite a bit of Jared and Nathan in this too.Read more
