*This novel contains strong sexual content, mature language, and mild violence. This is not one of your mama’s fairytales.*

Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? 

Samantha Wentworth has one mission in life: to get as far away as she possibly can from her troubled past. When she finds herself on the Louisiana bayou, she runs straight into the arms of a very sexy Big Bad Wolf that she just can’t seem to resist. Will Samantha continue on her journey, or does the full moon have other plans in store for her?

While this book moved fast, and got to the point quickly it is well worth the read, and such a phenomenal journey! The one thing that threw me off was the  back and forth point of views of the two main characters. Once you get into the book, and get the hang of the back and forth point of views, it is completely worth the read!

An erotic twist on the classic fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood, this tale will throw you for a complete loop when you dive into the first chapter, and encounter Samantha, "Red" and Ethan, "The Big Bad Wolf".  Not only does she encounter Ethan, she encounters his pack of brothers who chastise him for bringing Samantha back so she isn't in the woods alone. Now, his pack of brothers is nothing like the werewolves in the classic tales - while they have wolf like characteristics they do not shape shift into a wolf at all. 

Samantha, and Ethan have some really great character development throughout the story. Samantha is running from an abusive relationship that completely sends her for a loop when she runs into Ethan who wants to take care of her, and within seconds of finding her, falls for her. There is a lot of hot, exciting moments in this book that will want to send you over the edge.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read that really draws you in, and leaves you wanting more. The best part, in my opinion, was that there was no cliffhanger! I look forward to Trista's next book to see which fairy tale character she introduces her readers to.  

I begin biting tenderly down her neck in a way that leaves only tiny little marks but enough to make her groan with pleasure. I use my strength to lift her upwards as I move my mouth down her body. She tugs at my hair as I clamp my teeth down on one of her nipples. She releases another moan, and her breathing becomes choppy as I work my way down her core, kissing, biting, licking, and unable to control myself. I finally find myself in a squat position. I quickly adjust Red’s legs over my shoulders, and I feel her shake. Everything in me wants to have her, every single piece of her right this minute. I need her. Not to just satisfy the raw animal craving that has built up inside me, but because I need every piece of the one thing that I ever wanted and needed so badly. I slow my kisses past her belly button and move to her inner thighs. I look up at her and her eyes catch my gaze. She’s breathing heavily, her legs begin to tremble more as I steady her against the wall. I drop to my knees to maintain my own balance. When my mouth finally latches to her, letting my tongue do the work for me, she releases a noise filled with such intense pleasure that there’s no going back. I need her even more now.

Trista Jaszczak (jazz-ick) is the bestselling author of Little Red (Believe book I) and Loverboy. She is a devoted Air Force spouse and mother to two mischievous and rambunctious little girls. She is originally from Hamilton, Ohio but calls home wherever the Air Force sends her. She currently resides in Anchorage, Alaska where she finds endless inspiration in the pure Alaskan wilderness. When she isn’t writing, she spends her time with her family in the vast Alaskan outdoors, plucking away at her old guitar or working on self-improvement in the gym. She loves the outdoors, the moon, old movies and music.
