Little Red and the Wolf (Erotica/Romance) Review by Saewod Tice
Maizie Hood Struggles to keep her bakery turning a profit, her landlord from evicting her, and her dear Granny in a nursing facility. Now her childhood big-bad-wolf-nightmares are turning into real life adult fantasies. Is sexy businessman Gray Lupo the answer to her problems, or just a wolf in gentleman's Armani?
Who said being eaten by the big bad wolf was a bad thing?
Alison Paige has taken Little Red Riding Hood and given it an erotic and amusing twist. With a strong heroine, a hot older Hero in denial, a spunky Granny, along with a cast of enjoyable characters, Alison really delivers a fun erotic read. The love scenes were steamy, though some may find a few elements of certain scenes not their style.
The fact that the werewolves in this story were much more primal and true to a wolf’s nature was refreshing. However, having said that, I do have to bring to light a couple of cons. One, I think the story could’ve lost a couple of side stories which felt like it slowed the story down. Two, with some of the side stories and elements, there wasn’t a true resolution. Three, Gray Lupo is the Alpha, but the pack/family didn’t really treat him as such. There were times when the manipulation was a bit too much and too brash for the alpha persona Gray was supposed to epitomize.
Overall, I would suggest this story as a weekend erotic read. It was a fresh take on Little Red Riding Hood’s story.
