Red (Believe Series #1) by Trista Jaszczak
Fairy Tales Twisted? Yes Please!
I am a huge fan of these new retelling of fairy tales told in modern times. This one was a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and let me just say that this particular "little Red" is no damsel in distress, she is a funny, sassy, tough heroine. In this story just like all versions of this story our heroine, in this case Sam, has to meet "the Big Bad Wolf" and she does, in this story his name is Ethan. Together Sam and Ethan get up to some pretty steamy business, however it wouldn't be a story if there wasn't some problem or hardship to overcome. This is no exception, both our hero and heroine have sad, pretty tragic pasts. Will they come together to overcome the past, or will this just be a little rendezvous in the woods? Do twisted tales actually ever get the happily ever after? I laughed a lot while reading this twisted little fairy tale and I felt for the characters, the writing was done so well that you really get a sense of who they are. I would like to know more about dome if the side characters and hope that they might show up in another story down the line. This is a read worth picking up.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
