    Engrossing

    Originally posted at: www.whippedcream2.blogspot.com ***** This shape-shifter story about Gray Lupo and Maizie Hood is a fun take on the "Little Red Riding Hood" tale - just a whole lot sexier!

    From the start, conflict abounds, as Maizie is trying to protect her Granny's property from two men who want it for their own: Gray, who wants it as part of his forest preserve, and businessman Anthony Chadwick, who wants to develop it. Neither man's motives are entirely pure, and Maizie spends a lot of the book trying to figure out which one she should trust. From the start, though, her chemistry with Gray is off the charts, which isn't a surprise. He's known her for twenty-one years, since her parents died in a car accident that also claimed his wife.

    The connections between the characters are well thought out and explained - although sometimes too much so. Long passages chronicling the relationship between Gray's pack members took away from the flow of the story - at least for me. The best parts of the book are the many encounters between Gray and Maizie, when they realize they're meant to be life mates. The sex is terrific and terrifically described! Of course, the fact that he's a werewolf and she's a human makes for a little conflict early on. While I felt that certain aspects of Maizie's reactions to a rather stressful situation were a bit mild, all things considered, I still enjoyed this heroine.

    Also, the story's black moment turns on a conflict that falls dangerously close to the "with a single question it could have been cleared up" plot device. Maizie spends a lot of the story questioning Gray, which is fine, but rather than simply asking him the biggest question of all at the end, she assumes the worst. Then, after a dramatic showdown with the other major players, the problem is easily resolved.

    So while I felt the plot of this story had some minor issues, I did enjoy the overall romance. Gray and Maizie are clearly meant to be together, and their relationship develops wonderfully over the pages of the novel. Minor characters are also interesting and compelling, especially Granny and Annette, Gray's assistant (who has a terrific scene with Maizie near the end of the book). If you're looking for a shape-shifter story that delves into the experience of transforming between human and animal, and provides some steamy sex along the way, Little Red and the Wolf is a good pick for you!

    Great plot, a bit disjointed

    Taking a classic fairy tale and turning it around is an enticing concept. The Big Bad Wolf's mate and Red Riding Hood's parents were killed in a tragic accident. Years later, the two meet and begrudgingly develop feelings for one another. However, readers should be warned. Romantic scenes are more than descriptive. They are downright raunchy.

    I couldn't help feeling like the author had multiple personality disorder. One scene was clear and flowing and the next was unconnected. A victim of over-editing, maybe?

    The characters are interesting enough to make you yearn for a series. Sadly, I have to admit that I couldn't get past the feeling that two different authors were vying for attention. Alison Paige and Paige Cuccaro are at war and the reader loses.

    Don't waste your money

    I enjoy fantasy writing, but I couldn't even finish this book. I like a good sex scene, done tastefully. The concept of the fairy tale turned to sexy fiction was intriguing, but this version turned out to be a huge turnoff. The sex scenes were raunchy, to say the least, and not all that necessary to the story. Huge disappointment.

    Not for me

    I really enjoy both urban fantasy and paranormal romance but this book did not work for me. The idea was good but it the end I didn't care about either character. Several of the sex scenes were unnecessary and only hurt the book. There were two cases of almost bestiality and then the author through in a near-miss lesbian encounter for no reason at all. What?? Overall, big thumbs down.

    good storyline, plot was a bit hard to follow

    I expected this book to be a lot different than it actually was. I'm a big fan of fantasy books and the "modern fairytale" but this book disappointed me a little bit. It had a lot of potential, but overall it fell short.

    Random sex scenes seemed to be just placed between dialoge as filler and the "villian" in the story only appeared about four times. The two main characters only spent about 4 days within each others company and then all of a sudden she completely trusts him and believes that everyone she has met is a werewolf. Personally, it would take me more than that time to actually fall in love.
