Review: Alpha Betrayed by Bella Jacobs (Lost Moon University #1)

Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.

Alpha Betrayed is the first book in the Lost Moon University series penned by Bella Jacobs. My previous reads from this author were her The Wonderfully Witches of Nightfall, New Hampshire stories, and this new series starter of hers certainly has a darker hue to it. It's been a while since I last read a shifter romance, but this tale of stepsiblings who don't have a whole lot of love lost piqued my interest. Fair warning: This does end in a cliffhanger, which I'm a wee bit frustrated about because I had no clue that there was going to be one. (Note to self: Read blurbs even when it feels like you don't have to so as to avoid being the clueless wonder you now find yourself being.) Either way, let me just make one important point clear: This book was intriguing and exciting and now has me itching to get my hands on the second Lost Moon University novel.

Main characters Juliet and Ford hate each other, believing that they were betrayed by the other. But the truth could change everything between them. There's a heck of a lot of tension simmering, and it was interesting to see these two try to not kill each other AND not to give in to their not-so-hateful feelings for one another. Like I mentioned, this series starter does end in a cliffhanger, but the wait for the second book, Defiant Princess, isn't too terrible, what with the release date being April 21st, based on a quick check on Amazon. So, if you aren't the type to mind a cliffy and month-long wait when it comes to your paranormal romance reads, Alpha Betrayed is worth the read and emotional investment. Four stars.
