Lord, whenever I think Annabelle Jacobs surprised me in a spectacular way in the last book she puts new unexpected twists on top – and guess what? I’m loving it. ❤
Bitten by the Alpha is exactly what the title and the blurb promises: you get the bonding mate of the Alpha of the Regents Park pack, Cam and see how he and Gareth struggle to handle their duties as alpha and beta in the pack, trying to sail through uncharted waters.
I loved the thrill and tension right from the start. Garath is pretty honest with his feelings for his alpha but being a beta he is expected to act calm and collected, not infaturated, and definitely lusting after his alpha and head of the pack.
Where the first two books could be read as stand alones, from book 3, Bitten by Desire, on it isn’t really possible without being lost on the details and this book is the direct continuation of the shocking events from book three even if the couple is a different.
The pack is handling the new changes, the pack is enlarged and with setting new positions and being confronted with the earthshattering outcomes from the latest events alpha Cam and his beta Gareth don’t really have time to bond, to cherish their time together, to actually start a relationship. This is what they try – more or less successful – to tell themselves. But feelings and emotions aren’t rational and they can’t stop their destiny.
Annabelle Jacobs knows how to balance the tension out, the longing and the emotions Gareth has for Cam, and Cam on the other hand is dealing with his own past, with his own problems and still grieving for his late wife Mia that he isn’t even thinking of bonding, ever, his alpha duties on the other hand keeps him more than occupied.
The book was a thrlling read, it has – again – twist and turns, emotional parts, funny parts and the character’s closeness and the bond is there; between the mates, the pack and it’s giving you a warm feeling, makes you happy.
I also loved that with this book we have a possible extension with other packs, also new possibilities in the bonding couples with Rachel being a pleasant surprise for example. So far females were very rare in the series, not really present on page with exception of Jenn in the last book – and they were of course there – but the focus was on the male couples. With Cam who was in a relationship with a woman, there is – even not directly mentioned on page – a display of bisexuality which I loved as well as a possible F/F pairing, at least I’d love to read it and really hope Annabelle Jacobs consideres it. 🙂 Maybe we see a pleasant surprise; I’d buy it instantly.
Nontheless these new additions (on page, even not directly naming them) were promising and a joy for my heart. :3
5 out of 5 stars for this book and I really hope we see more of them… It can’t be the end… at least I hope so. 😉

Gareth’s heart is set on Cam, but Cam’s heart broke a long time ago.
As alpha of the Regent’s Park Pack, Cam’s focus is always centred on its members—his personal life pushed aside after the death of his wife. Now that his pack has merged with the Primrose Hill shifters, he can’t afford any distractions.
Gareth’s been in love with his alpha for years, but his position as beta complicates matters. Added to the fact Cam still mourns his late wife, Gareth knows his feelings will never be reciprocated, so he buries them deep.
With the two packs already struggling to unite under one alpha, they get a surprise addition—one who causes more tension within the ranks. Under such strain, long-kept secrets are forced into the open. Gareth and Cam must deal with the aftermath, while also keeping the pack’s best interests at heart.
