Talyn Bourne has been alpha for just a year when trouble comes his way. An opposing alpha who'd retired has returned, and he's brought chaos with him. He wants Talyn to hand over his omega. When Talyn refuses, Ethan McBride sends Gabriel Taylor, a man who Talyn kidnaps in order to teach Ethan a lesson. But it's Talyn who learns that sometimes the lines between enemy and lover are blurred.

Gabriel has no idea why he was chosen to confront Alpha Talyn Bourne. He hasn’t a clue what he's doing and ends up being captured. What confuses him is that Talyn treats him like a guest, not a hostile enemy. When feelings begin to blossom between them, Gabriel knows he has to escape. Trouble is, Gabriel's very own coalition is trying to kill him. But that isn’t his only complication. Talyn has gone into primal heat and has set his sights on Gabriel.

Alpha Bourne is the first book in the Primal Heat Series by Lynn Hagen.   I really liked how this series starts. There are a lot of characters I would like to get to know better in future books too.  There is some political world building in this book too. I like that because we get to see how the pack works.  Who does what and such.
The love story in play in this book is between Talyn Bourne the Alpha, well he has been an alpha for about year now. He wears the dog tags of his older brother who died serving his country. Talyn used to be young wild and free, now he knows his responsibilities. But he still has a little bad boy inside him too.
Gabriel Taylor is sent from another pack or coalition as they are called in this book. He is sent to get  Talyn’s Omega.  Talyn doesn’t want to give him or his Omega up. Especially when Talyn finds out that Gabriel is his mate.
Gabriel is funny, smart, little clumsy. I like his sass.  He is stronger than he appears  and very loyal too. His family will just make you laugh. I know I want to know more about the twins now. Those two will be hell on wheels to whomever they mate with.
Over all I really enjoyed this book. There is a great love story that had chemistry and drew me in. Also though there is a great story inside this book. With potential for more in the future.  It is a very easy first book to understand, not too much thrown in to bog me down.  I really loved it. I hope to read more in the future.  MM, were wolves is my favorite genre so bring them on!
