Stepping out of the closet as a gay man may be a walk in the park, compared to coming out as a werewolf.
From the moment artist Dylan Shore arrives in Chicago, his life gets twisted like a kaleidoscope. Why does a street gang he’s never met before want him dead? Why is a hot but odd mathematician stalking him? And how can half the things Alex Corwin says possibly be true, no matter how honest he seems?
Alex has a frightening dilemma. Dylan is attractive, appealing, out and proud. He’s also completely unaware that he’s a werewolf. It shouldn’t be Alex’s job to tell him, and warn him that gay wolves usually end up dead. But someone has to, before he finds out in blood and violence.
Chicago’s not Alex’s home town, but somehow he needs to protect Dylan from the local packs, protect the Packs from being outed by Dylan, and keep his cool around the first man to touch his own deeply-closeted heart.
Kaje Harper’s werewolves are so very interesting. I’ve enjoyed all the books in this series so far and Unsafe Exposure is no exception.
Dylan and Alex connect in a very unusual way and find themselves in very unfortunate circumstances. Yet, they fit together so well. I liked seeing them get closer and closer to each other even if much of it was because of the danger they were in.
The fear of the wolves coming out and what happens when people discover them among the rest of the population was palpable. The outcome was totally plausible too. This is so much more than a werewolf romance novel. There is some social commentary both on how the wolves behave as well as the humans. In addition it looked at families and the need for someone. It was so engaging that I couldn’t put it down and read it quite quickly.
I definitely recommend this series and this book in particular.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
