Overview

Once upon a time, Red Riding Hood fell in love with the wolf. It ended badly...

Elodie Rose has a secret. Any day, she'll become a wolf and succumb to the violence that's cursed her family for centuries. For seventeen years she's hidden who and what she is. But now someone knows the truth and is determined to exterminate her family line. Living on borrowed time in the midst of this dangerous game of hide and seek, the last thing Elodie needs is to do is fall in love. But Sawyer is determined to protect her, and the brooding, angry boy is more than what he seems. Can they outsmart a madman? And if they survive, will they find a way to beat the curse for good?

Editorial Reviews

Smart Bitches, Trashy Books - Sarah Wendell
Holy, holy crap, I really enjoyed this book...I was so absorbed in this book while reading it, I couldn't stay away and I wanted to check out of everything I was doing so I could go finish it. I think of this as "glue" and have referenced in other reviews when a book is "sticky." This book is quite sticky. Be ye warned... it's delicious.
Paromantasy - Evelyn Amaro
It was love at first word! Kait Nolan is sure to take the YA market by storm with this unputdownable book that left me glued to the pages until the very end.

I LOVE werewolf books. I'm probably the last reviewer/blogger of my kind. An endangered species. I will never get tired of authors finding different, original ways to shake up the werewolf scene. And Kait Nolan has done just that. When I first learned that this was kind of a retelling, I was a little discouraged. I'm not big on the whole fairytale thing. I've seen books do this well, but overall; I just want an original concept. But Nolan really impressed me. I didn't feel like I was reading a fairytale. This story was original and of its own, and the characters were awesome. Elodie is a fantastic character. I think she is one of the most believable characters in YA right now. Sure there's some melodrama with the queen bees at school, that same old tired hierarchy-I'm just not a fan of that scene, I'm more about the fantasy-but it's short and doesn't way the story down as it quickly moves on. And Elodie faces some pretty difficult stuff. I think the way she rationalizes the issues and problems in her life is clever, and she's a smart, tough girl. I heart her big time. Get it girl! Sawyer. Swoon, baby, swoon. I love me the tough and broody protective type. It must be the season for this type of character, and that's fine with me. I've read a few books lately with this type of dude. But that's all good, because I can't get enough. Sawyer and Elodie have that instant attraction/connection, but I didn't mind that with them. They're a different species, after all. And it felt right between them. I think it would be unbelievable for the story if they didn't. My only complaint, I want more! I didn't want the story to end, and I wanted the chemistry between them ratcheted up. I'm hoping this will become a series. I recommend this to anyone who, obviously, like werewolf books, Paranormal Romance, and wants an action-packed read with a little romance, and lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing. Great Read!

What a blast! I blasted through the book in less than a weekend and was thoroughly entertained, occasionally surprised, frequently delighted by the heroes of Red. I hope for a sequel.

This book started off quite depressing and melancholy, almost too much so, but by the third chapter that mood is taken down to a much more bearable level and the plot lengthens, becoming more interesting as the pages go by. I loved this book by the end, and wish there was a sequel of some sort. :(

A must read. I knew this was suppose to be some kind of a take on Little Red Riding Hood and I was afraid it might be cheesy, but the reviews were good so I chose to take the risk. So glad I did awesome book.
