#BookReview – ‘Wolf at the Door’ by Sofia Grey


Love can heal all wounds…

Pop star Lillian Hart is determined never to trust another man. She has no idea that the wolf at her door is anything other than a wounded dog, much less the Alpha of the Snowdonia Wolf pack. There’s something about the wild creature that pulls at her. Then a man with her wolf’s eyes starts to invade her dreams, and reality and fantasy merge in a way that has her hoping, against all odds, for dreams to come true.

Lillian may have sworn off men, but Jake’s not just any man, he’s a shifter, and he’s about to shift Lillian’s world to make room for him. He vows to claim her as his Mate, and when Jake makes a vow, he keeps it. But Lillian wants to take it slow and Jake is not about to waste any time.
In this battle of wills, both discover giving in and trusting their hearts can heal even the deepest of hurts.  


Lillian is a pop star hiding from the paparazzi because of a bad breakup with her more famous actor boyfriend. She’s heading to a remote cabin in the snowy mountainous region of Wales and almost hits a wolf. Though she missed him, she finds blood on the road but can’t find the injured wolf. She continues to the cabin and later finds the poor wolf at her door. She lets him in, bandages the wound, and calls him Wolfie.
Jake is the alpha of his pack. Injured in an old hunter’s snare, he goes to the cabin for help since he can’t make it back to the pack. He instantly knows Lillian is his mate from first sniff and is determined to seduce her in her dreams. Probably about half the book is in dream sequences.
I couldn’t connect with the H/h. Lillian acted too flighty and had an affair with Kurt, a married man, but at least she believed he and his wife were separated and in the middle of a divorce. Kurt did a lot of awful things to Lillian and never got his comeuppance in the end. Jake took a long time to tell Lillian the truth, and when he finally did, she accepted the fact that werewolves are real pretty easily.
Other than a few typos, the story is well-written. The author flip-flopped between the H/h’s POVs way too often (multiple times, back and forth, per chapter) but at least the shifts and scene breaks were properly labeled. I liked the plot and the universe the author created, but I really wish I could’ve understood Lillian and Jake better.
3 Stars
