A Night Away (A Redwood Pack Novella) by Carrie Ann Ryan

Kade Jamenson has been mated to Melanie for almost two years. They’ve been through mating circles, battles, loss, misunderstandings, and finally, the birth of their son, Finn. The world is in turmoil around them as the Redwoods engage in war with the Centrals. But for Kade and Melanie, the turmoil is also happening at home. The responsibility of a restless baby and their Pack has taken a toll and they need a break.

Not from each other. But from their Pack. Just for a night.

Kade takes Mel away for a romantic getaway and leaves Uncle Maddox alone with baby Finn. The Omega of the Redwood Pack may be adept at emotions but the idea of a baby may be beyond his immense capabilities.

Author’s Note: This is a novella set between books 3 and 4 to give you a taste of Mel and Kade. It is best that you have already immersed yourselves in the Redwood Pack world, however even new readers will enjoy a glimpse of one of the Redwood’s favorite couples.

This is a novella set between books 3 and 4 of the Redwood Pack series. It’s just supposed to be a little add-on, so to speak. However, I think it may be my favorite in the series! It returns us to the very first couple we met, and shows us the chemistry we loved from the very beginning. It’s sexy as hell, and incredibly sweet as we see through the eyes of two devoted first-time parents. We also get to see more of the human side of the pack, as Willow and Mel compare notes on being mothers, and Hannah as she opens up about wanting that for herself and her men. We also see Kade chilling out working with his brothers. It’s so great to see them as more of a family than a pack of close-knit werewolves. I’m no expert on child development, nor have I had children of my own, so I can’t say anything definitive about the plausibility of Finn’s (the 11mo baby) behavior and all, so I’ll stay away from that, but I do have a close friend who had her first baby almost two years ago. Remembering what she went through – adjusting to the baby, and struggling to find a balance between being herself, being a wife, and being a mom – I thought this novella was very realistic in how Kade and Mel were feeling. My heart just melted. My favorite so far, A Night Away turns up the heat, and tugs at the heart strings. It was an awesome little side trip in the Redwood Pack series.

Love the characters Mel and Kade! So glad we got to have another peek into their relationship. Even a toddler can wear out a werewolf! Everyone reaches that point after having a kid where you just need to make time to reconnect with your partner. This short novella was spot on! You will not be disappointed. Hugs, C. Johnston aka Krystal Shannan

What parent hasn't gotten tired with a new baby! Evan shifters has baby issues. This novelle gives you a look into the Redwood pack. Mel and Kade are just like any parent but add a little werewolf. It will make you laugh along and maybe tear up a little but by the end if you haven't read about the Redwood Pack you will want too. Awesome series highly recommended!

A Sweet short story about Kade and Mel getting away for a romantic night away from baby Finn. These two need a few hours to themselves. I loved seeing how much they love one another and baby Finn. Carrie Ann Ryan has brought these fabulous characters into our lives and you love them and enjoy seeing their lives play out. I highly recommend this series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

A Night Away is set between Books 3 and 4 of the Redwood Pack series by Carrie Ann Ryan. I loved revisiting with Kade and Melanie from Book 1. As new parents they are struggling to find that perfect balance between caring for a baby, caring for themselves, leading the Pack and still finding time to connect as a couple. This was an enjoyable short story of Kade and Melanie getting just one night away from it all and reconnecting. The interactions with Maddox and Finn were adorable. I even laughed out loud a few times.

A Sweet, Sexy, Romantic treat of a short story for an amazing couple that are new parents and need a night away to remember the heat that started it all. Uncle Maddox gets to baby sit and Kade and Melanie get to take a romantic weekend away from the pack. Just a fun afternoon read.

Kade and Mel are so busy being the Alpha heir and mate, they have not taken time to just be. Add a fussy baby to the mix and overwhelmed is an understatement. They need A Night Away and family is there to help if only they accept the hand. I enjoyed this glimpse into life of Kade and Mel afther their happily ever. Ms. Ryan gave us a peek at real life, which can be hard, even if there is love. This was a nice slice of their world where danger isn't a focus but reconnecting is. I enjoyed this intimate look at Mell and Kade's home life

It was so good to have another story with Kade & Mel again. And now with Finn too. Being a parent I get where this story is coming from. And I totally loved getting a peek into Maddox. I can't wait for his story

This is book 3.5 in the Redwood Pack series. It's a short novella about Kade and Melanie after the birth of their son. It's all about them needing to reconnect as a couple and as lovers. They have let not only their son but the needs of the pack to take over every facet of their lives and they feel like they, specifically Melanie, are not working as a couple anymore. This is their chance to get away and take that time that they need to be together, just the two of them. It is a hot, short, and sweet story that let's you know that even with everything going on in their lives and to show that even though they seem to have it all together, they have their own issues too. It was a great peek into their lives!

Redwood Pack Book 3.5 Kade and Melanie are being run ragged by their beautiful baby, Finn. When they finally break down and tell the family, Maddox volunteers to watch Finn while the couple takes a night-long vacation. Meanwhile, Hannah is worried she will never have a child and Maddox is tested by the energy of Finn. If you've been waiting for more Kade and Mel, your wish has come true!

In A Night Away we get to revisit Kade and Melanie 2 years after Book 1 in the Redwood Pack Series!! I'm gonna keep this short and sweet, this is the #1 thing I love about this series, we get to revisit couples form older books via novellas or in the full length novels. Kade and Melanie need a break, which any marries couple with kids and jobs and full lives can completely understand and relate to. So they ask Uncle Maddox to babysit and run away for the night. I've been waiting patiently on the edge of my seat for more insight into Maddox and I'm dying waiting for his book. So it was nice to get to see a little more of Maddox that we haven't got to see yet in previous books. Nice quick read to wet the appetite of any Redwood Series Fangirl, I giver it 4 out of 5 stars only cause I wish it was longer and didn't have to end :)

Sexy, Getaway Romp! This story is a wonderful follow up on the events that started in An Alpha's Path. It is always exciting when an author goes back to where it all began and gives the readers an insight into how the characters’ lives are evolving. I love that Carrie Ann Ryan has made it believable, especially when those of us who are parents know how off kilter your life can be in those early stages and how hard it is to find those precious moments we took for granted when we were just a couple. A Night Away reminds us that “Alone” time is important and that passion should never go unfulfilled!
