A Dark Shifter Romance
FORD: Justice. Revenge. The pain, blood, and tears of the stepsister who sold me into slavery and stole the Alpha Throne that was rightfully mine.
For years, these were the only things that kept me sane.
And then I escape the Blood Pit Fight syndicate and track down the woman I’ve lived to destroy only to find she’s been a captive, too, and everything I was told was a lie…
JULIET: I’ve just been saved from the Circus of the Strange by the stepbrother who sold me into slavery in the first place.
Ford swears he didn’t betray me and that the only way to reclaim what we’ve lost is to seek refuge at a top-secret university for rejected shifters. There, he says, we’ll grow strong, plan our revenge, and prepare to destroy my father.
But is Ford the hero in this story or the villain?
And what’s my stepbrother going to do when he realizes I would rather die a virgin than be his good little wolf?
Alpha Betrayed is the first in a scorching hot dark romance series and is not for the faint of heart. It ends in a cliffhanger.
Absolutely devoured this book!
Wow … Bella Jacobs is still a newish author to me. I hardly read paranormal romance, but something about her writing just gets me intrigued with her characters. It’s not the corny paranormal, it definitely has the heat factor and darkness. Alpha Betrayed was a whirlwind of everything and anything. It was not what I expected. I was sold from reading the first few chapters.
The characters can be a bit addicting. I was enamored with what will happen next and before I knew it, I was pages in. You will surely forget about reality while in this world.
Alpha Betrayed is a story that has some untold truths. I was addicted and now I cannot wait to read the next book. I was left with needing to see what happens next!!
Dark shifter story
Full disclosure, Alpha Betrayed ends in a cliffhanger…and what a cliffy it is! The reason I’m telling you this up front is not to discourage you from reading it, but to encourage you. Because book one is a wild ride!
Juliette and Ford break out of their forced captivities…beware, that stuff is dark…and work together towards revenge against the pack and Alpha who betrayed them. Juliette is definitely not sure working with Ford is a good idea, but I guess time will tell. Ford seems very forgiving and honest, but is it real or a trap? And there’s also some serious chemistry, whether they (mostly Juliette) are will to admit it or act on it.
So far, I’m loving this series…I think it’s a trilogy? No matter what, I’m here for it! 4.5 stars
Fast-Paced Series Starter
Wow, this story started out DARK. I wasn’t sure I would be able to get into it. But once the story progressed, the characters began to shine through. Ford and Juliet are complex and flawed, yet still likable. The action was fast-paced and held my attention. This is only the first part of the story, so it’s more of a tease than anything, but one I look forward to continuing.
