The horror has only begun for Alec Rune as he learns that werewolves have a much darker plan for him, and he must confront… The Wolf at His Door
I love to read books from (for me) new authors. The Wolf at His Door is the first one I have read by Adrian Lilly. The Wolf at His Door is a lovely and thrilling Gay Paranormal Romance. Alec one of the brothers of an identical twins is facing a horror while exploring his interest in Jared.
I have to admit it was a little of a struggle to get in to the story. Some places where too much described that it broke my concentration to get in to it. Like descriptions of kitchen and hallways that where not really necessary for that part of the book. And I also had some troubles keeping the characters separated in the beginning, especially the twins with the similar names, Alec and Adam in the middle of all the other characters that follow in a rap tempo the first pages. But after that the story soon got me hooked and ready to go. With its great world-building and fun dialogues, action and paranormal characters, Adrian Lilly ready did his best to make this a fun and thrilling book to read. With teasing scenes like a shirt-less frisbee game and steamy kiss scenes and of course the thrilling/investigation scenes.
A spontaneous giggle burst from both of them. “This is too awkward,” Alec said.
“Uh-huh,” Jared said then smiled. “So, do you wanna kiss me and see if you like
Alec looked up at Jared, his eyes betraying his anxiety.
“Have you ever kissed a guy?” Jared asked.
“Well, you know, yeah.”
Alec leaned over and placed his lips to Jared’s. His first tentative kiss sent an
electric jolt through his body. He pulled back and smiled. “That was okay.”
“That was barely a kiss,” Jared said. Jared leaned over, and laying his arm across
Alec, laid down with him as they continued to kiss.
I am looking forward to read more about Alec and Jared and his inexperience and a bit disappointed that Adrian skipped the fun bed part. But on the other hand even more interesting to keep reading. Page after page a real page turner!
I hope to read more from this series. It is good there are 2 more coming up! I certainly will keep my eye on Adrian Lilly and his Runes Trilogy!
“Don’t see anybody,” Alec said, his voice echoing in the barn.
“What’s that?” Jared asked, walking toward the indistinguishable lump on the
barn floor. Eyes searching the edges of the light, Jared made his way to his findings. “It’s
clothes,” he announced.
Lucy dashed to him, and stooping, announced, “They’re Rene’s.”
“Are you sure?” Alec asked.
Lucy flipped out Rene’s wallet, flashing his ID.
“Okay,” Alec said, taking a deep breath. “So he’s running around naked—”
“For God’s sake, Alec,” Lucy screamed, “We have to assume Jared is right now,
