2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Bitten By Mistake by Annabelle Jacobs (348-08-30-2016)

1) This was the most original wolf shifter novel I've come across in a long time, and I can't even remember how long it's been since I enjoyed one of those so much. It had all the key elements of "traditional" shifter stories - the biting, the 'mine', the bonding/ mating thing - and yet it gave me a pleasant surprise with its imaginative take on all of this. Laced with a dash of humor, snarky dialogue and just the right amount of angst between two very likable main characters, this was an entertaining read that I can warmly recommend.

2) Fresh and interesting take on the enemies-to-lovers trope that I enjoyed very much for the pace with which the trust, affection and love grew. The author didn’t shy away from conflict and didn’t make it easy on the characters. I particularly enjoyed that her characters didn’t have all the answers, but had to muddle through.

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 into Nathan’s life, every rule is broken. After a bad experience, Jared vowed to never get involved with another shifter, no matter how much they got under his skin. Despite being physically attracted to Nathan, who’s all kinds of hot, Jared only sees an arrogant, domineering bastard. A disastrous case of mistaken identity throws Nathan and Jared together until the next full moon. Forced to spend the next twenty-eight days in close proximity, they can no longer ignore the powerful attraction between them. Passion ignites, and their relationship takes a turn neither of them wanted. But when the full moon comes, everything might change again.
