Bitten by Mistake
Wolf shifter Nathan Kohl’s pack is his whole life. Arrogant and handsome, he avoids commitment to anything or anyone outside of his pack. He works hard, plays hard, and pursues humans as lovers because there’s little to no chance of him forming a permanent bond. However, when Jared Taylor comes ...more
Thanks to my girl Renée for a quick and dirty BR.
This book worked for me on so many levels: It's SEXY, passionate, and intense. It contains enough shifter action to satisfy rabid wolf fans, but the focus is most definitely on the relationship between Nathan and Jared.
When Jared first meets Nathan, he gives him the cold shoulder. Jared does not like shifters. He thinks they're arrogant and dangerous. He dated a shifter once and is determined to never make that mistake again.
Nathan is a l ...more
This story was love at first sight for me. The moment that I began reading, it was all over and I was hooked.
I always enjoy a good enemies to lovers tale and in this story, as far as Jared is concerned, all shifters are the enemy.
So when Jared meets Nathan in a bar, and Nathan goes arrogant and all, "I know you want a piece of this," Jared firmly rebuffs those advances without delay.
But visually, Nathan was kind of...
Mixed with a bit of...
So Jared's mind was saying no, but his body d ...more
This was my first book by this author and I really loved it.
This was really good. It had a great action, romance, and characters. The way it started off really draws you in and keeps your attention until the very end. I stayed up quite late finishing it. I regret nothing. LOL
This is definitely a case of I hate you that eventually turns into I love you. An enemies to lovers story. Oh how I love these kinds of stories. Especially when they are written as well as this one was.

In this new world that Annabelle Jacobs created, biting a human without their consent is illegal and they could die for it, no matter how it happened. So when Nathan was chasing a rogue wolf he bit Jared by mistake and now his fate is in Jared’s hands, Jared who hated shifters. For him, shifters were a no-go zone, no matter how hot they were. Nathan could be killed, banned from his pack or went to the prison the rest of his life…

Just couldn't get in to this one. No point continuing when I was skimming anyways.
Didn't find either main character very likable honestly.
But the sex was hot so there was that. And it was free.
This shifter story was quite a bit different, than any of the other shifter stories I have read so far. It was acually a refreshing read. I really enjoyed it.
First some things need to be explained. In this story, shifters are not allowed to bite humans without their consent and the consent of the pack, to which the shifter belongs. We're not talking verbal consent, but actual paperwork that needs to be filed. If these rules are not followed, the shifter is breaking the law and will therefor ...more
I liked the premise of this book and did enjoy reading it, but also found myself easily distracted by other things while reading. I think my main reason was that I never fully warmed up to Jared.
Shifters and humans co-exist in Annabelle Jacobs world, but not without some laws to keep order.
1. All shifters are required to have their DNA registered....more
2. Any shifter bitings must be submitted to the government with agreement signed by the shifter pack and the human involved.

Surprisingly, I actually enjoyed this one. One of the things that did bother me a bit was the timeline and the insta-love feels it gave. BUT the insta-love wasn't something that really bothered me as it wasn't necessary the main focus, which helped me enjoy the book instead. The focus was more on the bond and on the possibility of losing it. It was quite interesting.

The setup, the "relationship" and the battle. I didn't get it. Any of it.
There was so much going on and nothing was explained and what was explained didn't make sense to me. For such an organized Pack it seemed they were all pretty clueless.
My favorite part was them meeting in the bar. After that, meh.
Oh well, it happens. Everyone else seemed to love it.
Maybe, just maybe *G*, I have to admit to myself that I actually really like shifter romance. T. J. Klune's Wolfsong paved the way for more.
I LOVED this a lot. Why?
1. absolutely brilliant enemies-to-lovers plot:
(Jared's snark and his 'mildly' caustic banter with Nat is very entertaining)
2. a short stretch of the fake-boyfriends trope:
Needless to say that the fake part doesn't last too long.
3. 'wolfy things':
I liked the alternative universe Annabelle Jacobs creates. There is some ...more
M/M romance has definitely proven this year to be a new favorite of mine. And Bitten by Mistake was another great addition to this genre.
Never had he thought he wanted this—this closeness, this feeling of completeness that filled him from head to toe and made his wolf preen with contentment. Now he couldn’t imagine being without it.
I have a very big weakness for shifters, because let’s face it they are usually so damn sexy with their growly and alpha personalities and I always love...more
Hot tension, fun to read, interesting shifter world building, no whiny characters. Totally worked for me. I thought I knew what the ending was going to be, but I was surprised....yay!
This was a fun, sexy read! I love a well done shifter story. I feel like I've read so many that I've read it all but Jacobs shifter world is original and fun! The shifters don't actually hide out in the woods but live a relatively normal life in London. And the world knows about them!
The first half dragged just a little bit, things between the MCs don't really heat up until about half way but when they do, it's scorching! Biting, claiming, bonding, mine mine mine :D super hot! And eve ...more
Well, I liked this one...in fact, I couldn't stop reading it, and I don't really do shifter stories that much other than THIRDS, but I got it done same day. Plenty of hotness between Nathan and Jared once their 'bond' kicked in, but the reason it hasn't gotten 5 stars is that I felt that the 'rogue pack' scenario wasn't fleshed out enough at the end...that all felt really rushed to me, I was at least expecting Alec to be involved behind the scenes or that stupid twit Newell, who was the alpha of ...more
Loved the tender moments between these two.
The plot was way too complicated with all the lying and hiding. Too many variables.
I'm not satisfied with the worldbuilding either. And there are some questions I didn't get an answer to. Where did shifters come from? Were they born like that? What exactly happened with Jared and his ex, that made him hate shifters? We onl ...more
I quite liked it at the beginning. I liked the suspense. And then there's too much push and pull going on that makes me bored with them.
I'm not usually a reader of shifter related books, Kendall McKenna's Tameness of the Wolf being the exception, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
While werewolf politics played the major role in the plot for this story, it wasn't the biggest driving force between the two MCs, that was firmly in the sexual attraction and tension front and it was very well done.
There are a few narrative plot points which don't get explained, like how Jared bought his Camden flat, worth nearly a ...more
The characters were well written and likable, the secondary characters were as interesting as the main ones and I love it when you like the smaller characters in a book. To me it is so much more real.
I enjoyed Nathan and Jared so much the love/dislike was fun and not irritating.....and when it just became romance it was all the much more cool.
The only thing I didn't care ...more
An avid reader of fantasy herself for many years, Annabelle now spends her days writing her own stories. They're usually either fantasy or paranormal fiction, because she loves building worlds filled with magical creatures, and creating stories full of action and adventure.
