When the last thing you want, is everything you need….
Seb Calloway isn’t interested in shifters. After his best friend bonded with one, he avoids getting involved with them—no matter how hot they are—to prevent the same thing from happening to him. Why take the risk for a few hours of fun?
Tim Walters is the pack doctor. Considered to be mild-mannered and non-threatening by pack standards, he prides himself on being able to stay calm and maintain his control at all times. Desperate for a bond of his own, he knows his interest in Seb is an exercise in futility, but he can’t seem to help himself.
When news emerges that threatens Seb’s safety, he and Tim need to fake a relationship to keep Seb safe. Despite Seb’s refusal to be anything other than friends with benefits, what starts out as pretend, quickly becomes more—for Tim at least. If Tim doesn’t want to end up heartbroken, he needs to prove to Seb that loving a shifter doesn’t mean losing himself.

This is such an amazing series. Bitten by Mistake was a great read but Bitten By Design was even more so. See made a huge impression on me in book one with how protective he was of his best friend Jared but this book really made me love Seb even more.
Tim captured my heart from the beginning of this read with how patient he is and how caring. He has this charisma about him that makes him so much more of an amazing man. He is not arrogant or overwhelming with his presence even though he is a shifter and knows that he can handle himself. And the way he is with Seb is such a beautiful thing.
Tim knows how Seb feels about being bitten or mated to a shifter and even though Tim is in love with Seb he never tried to pressure Seb into more then Seb is will My to offer. He is patient with him and his feelings and he is willing to break his own heart in the end if Seb chooses to never be with him that way. Tim is willing to take what little Seb will allow himself to give and the. Let him go in the end if that is what Seb so chooses. Tim is selfless and that makes him an even more wonderful man in the end.
Even though Seb knows that he may never want atom the way Tim wants Seb, Seb cannot seem to walk away from him. Seb knows he is selfish in taking what Tim offers him and not being willing to give Tim what he wants in return. But regardless of all of that Seb cannot help falling harder and harder for Tim in the end.
The question both men face is what will they do when their time comes to an end? Will Seb walk away and never change his mind and heart about what he is willing to give? Can Tim keep carrying on even knowing he may never mate with Seb? What will happen wito both men with all the danger lurking around the corner from them?
These questions and so many more are answered in this book. You have to read it to get the answers and if you are anything like I am, you will be overjoyed with reading this book. This series started off strong and I have a feeling it will only get better and better as each book in the series comes out. I, for one, cannot wait to read them!!
