I'm really getting into this faerie tale series. It's not hard to figure out that Big Bad Wolf is a take on Red Riding Hood. But that's where all similarities end. Wolf is the town villain, or so everyone assumes. Years earlier he acquired that reputation when his first wife died under mysterious circumstances on their wedding night. Years later, he meets "Red" as she's on her way to grandma's house. Sparks fly between the pair until they finally marry. But they have to undergo many hardships before they can finally be a real couple...from his first wife's death to "Red's" fear that her new husband will never truly love her. Read on to find out all their secrets.
Eh. Very loosely based on the story of little red riding hood, we have a young woman who meets a grouchy, selfish, stern man and falls head over heels. The book spends most of its time observing how badly Wolf treats Molly (aka Red) after they marry, and proving to us what a selfless saint she is.
I thought the hero was pretty unlikable and the romance weak. She was certainly "good" but not very interesting to me. It wasn't really love for either of them, mostly lust. Limited romance, negligible love scenes. The writing was OK, I've certainly read far, far worse, but it wasn't memorable by any stretch.
Little Red Riding Hood brought to life. One of the Faerie Tale Romances.
Loved this book also, really grabbed and kept me.
Part of the Faerie Tale's. I really liked the way that the Wolf actually was a man and the Red Riding Hood was a woman that knew her own mind. Really hard to post- 4 STARS!
