Little Red - Cover
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?

A retelling of “Little Red Riding Hood” with adult themes???  Sign me up!!!!!!
So, as you may have guessed, this is the retelling of a classic fairy tale with some modern flair!  Sam (Red) is on the run from her crazy and abusive ex-boyfriend. She runs out of gas and has no choice but to hunker down in the woods for the night.  Enter Ethan, the big, bad wolf!  Ethan has his own demons he is running from and he and Red find that they must work together in order to through the danger that finds them both.
I think on the whole, this book was an interesting concept that just didn’t quite live up to my expectations.  I mean, the promise was there because there’s so much you can do with the Little Red Riding Hood story, but the characters are where it fell short for me.
Red and Ethan just didn’t seem all that realistic to me.  I mean, I know that they’re fictional characters, but the things they did and the ways in which they acted just seemed very juvenile to me.  Ethan’s anger was a big turn off for me as well, but I guess since he was supposed to be the wolf it all worked out in the end.
The big plus of this book for me was –shocker—the sex.  Oh baby, it was a steamy read. 
Overall, I think this story just needs more work in order to be exceptional.  It was just ok for me.  I needed a bit more in the character development area.  And more buildup between Red and the Wolf instead of the instant love that really teetered on the edge of ridiculous for me.  3.5 stars.
I stand up slowly and begin to fight what I’m about to do. I beg myself to sit down, look away, anything, but instead I trail up to her. She doesn’t flinch, doesn’t shudder; strangely, her eyes stay locked onto mine. I take the extra towel from her and draw her body to mine. I hear her left out a small gasp, and I can tell her heart rate has quickened. I bring a hand to her face, letting it trail from her cheek to her neck, all the way to the back of her head. I pull her in for a kiss. A proper one. That feeling I felt before returns as something inside me nearly loses control. My legs begin to feel weak as I realize that she’s kissing me back. It’s as soon as my tongue flickers over hers that I really feel I may lose it. I pull away for a moment and close my eyes. “This is how it’s supposed to be,” I mumble to her. I work to keep myself under control, I remind myself to keep a slower pace, not to rush. I catch a sudden wave of Red’s feelings…the want and need is there, and it makes it more difficult to control myself. I try to relax, remind myself to pace myself but when Red pushes her body into mine, I fully lose any control that I had. Her arms fly around my neck and I do nothing to stop her. Her lips find mine as her hands reach for my belt buckle. She wastes no time in unbuckling and unzipping my jeans. I reach for the last towel and yank it from her body as she pulls my tee shirt off and throws it across the room. She wraps her arms around me again and lets her lips find mine as I wrap my arms around her, lifting her in one swift movement. Her legs immediately cinch around my waist and I steady myself quickly as I push her against the nearest wall. She moans loudly and I feel her nails dig into my back briefly. I begin biting tenderly down her neck in a way that leaves tiny little marks but enough to make her groan with pleasure. I feel all self-control leave my body as I steady her against the wall and begin using my strength to lift her upwards as I move my mouth down her body. I feel her hands tug at my hair as I clamp my teeth down on one of her nipples. She releases another moan and I feel her breathing become 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 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 his 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 as 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.
