Review: Red and Wolfe by Ella James


When Sarah "Red" Ryder loses her job as an art critic for a Boston newspaper, she's brokenhearted. Worse than that? She's broke. Her boyfriend recently left her - for a tatted-up hottie with a dick - so she's stuck paying her hefty apartment rent alone. After two months unemployed, there's no money left. With no immediate family to turn to, Red reaches out to her estranged grandmother, a reclusive writer living on an island off the coast of Charleston. Several days later, Red receives $30,000 and an invitation to visit.

James Wolfe is not Red's grandmother. But he beckons her. Red has the ability to give him something he needs. He won't take "no" for an answer, and he doesn't mind screwing her over. He lost his conscience six years ago, when he was tried for the murder of his wife. Since then, life is about him - and the paintings he does under the mysterious pseudonym "W." 

Wolfe needs the island to keep painting. To live his life away from prying eyes. To keep up the anonymity of "W." 

Once he sees Red, he finds that he needs her, too. And Wolfe will have her. Any way he can.

Meagan's Review:

Okay so when I first started reading this book, I fell in love with the blurb as well as the title. I've always been a sucker for the story of Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, as well as some of the spin off's on this story. So immediately I was sucked into the book and stoked to read it. The book starts out with us meeting Sarah. I feel terrible for Sarah and her situation. She pretty much loses everything and is almost homeless before she breaks down and tries to contact her grandmother. After some searching and calling she finally gets a way to pass along a call to her grandmother. After that Sarah's life will never be the same. 

The next day Sarah has a crap ton of money in her account as well as a message to head somewhere to meet her grandmother. However, she she arrives she meets a man on the dock instead of her grandmother. He tells her to call him Race and he was sent by her grandmother to take her by boat to the island. However, the reality of the situation is that recently Sarah's grandmother passed away and left the island to Race...a.k.a. Mr. I have another name, but it has to go through family first before he can legally obtain it. So he sets out to get Sarah to do just that and offers her pretty much a bribe and they can both be on their ways. However, nothing is as simple as that and Sarah take a picture of him and the location they are going and sends it to her best friend so as to not have something bad happen. However, beyond that Race finds Sarah or Red as he calls her, hawt and he is turned on by her and the boat ride and then some are pretty steamy and

I kept read and getting lost in their story and then WHAM......end of book. I was screaming because I wanted to know what happened next. Thankfully Part 2 and Part 3 are out!!! I'll be definitely be reading those shortly. But I highly recommend this book for a great weekend read. It was super quick to read and pulls the reader in from the very beginning and Ella wrote it wonderfully. I cannot say enough great things about this book. So make sure to go get your copy!!!

Meagan's Review:

Holy sex on a stick batman. Okay so this book grabbed me from the very first line because it tells me how this book was going to be. The first line you read is, "Logan McCade never considered himself an ass man, but the heart-shaped one packed into snug black jeans practically begging to be kissed, licked, bitten and quite possibly spanked." O.M.G. lol and then I a little lateer I read, "This is what she looks like whens he comes...cheeks flushed, eyes wide and dazed, and those soft pink lips parted." Ahhhh lol can I live in a different reality where some guy will look at me like this?? lol Anyways it ends up that Logan is staring at his best friends younger sister Sophie. And Sophie has had a crush on Logan since Colt and Logan became roommates. They also happen to be stuck together for the week because it is Colt's wedding and they are at a resort.

Sophie is also super shy and doesn't really like to be out in crowds. And Colt wants his sister to join in on the fun for the wedding, so he asks Logan to keep an eye on her and make sure she joins in on the fun and not stays up in her room. Well that's perfectly fine with him because of course he likes hanging out with Sophie and possibly "hanging out"' with her. The story continues to follow these two as they see where things might go as well as how things progress with the wedding. Also the other bridal party are kind of funny too and I can't wait to read those books to see how their stories turn out. This book was a great quick weekend read and once you pick it up you won't want to put it down. Samanthe wrote it AMAZINGLY and I cannot give it enough praise. I absolutely loved this book and the characters!!!

Blogs Taking Part in the Release Day Launch

Exclusive Excerpt: 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071] “If I come inside tonight, I’m not returning to the hotel. I want you to know if we go inside, I’m staying.” I smiled at him in the darkness with only the street lights for illumination. “I’m sure.” The unsnapping of his seat belt echoed around us. “Eager much?” I teased. He growled and opened his door. “Coming?” he glanced at me. “God I hope so. And soon,” I mumbled softly under my breath. “Come again?” He grinned. My mind told me we needed to talk. My heart told my mind to shut it. My body ignored both of them and hummed with anticipation. When we made it inside the house, he pinned me against the wall and crushed my mouth with his. In romance writing there was a trope about tongues battling for dominance. I never understood the appeal or the action until that kiss. Massacred any resistance I still held. I rubbed against him like a cat. Yearning for Shiva’s multiple arms, my hands touched everywhere they could reach. They tangled into his hair, ran over his shoulders, inside his coat, under his sweater, and over his lower back before coming to rest on his ass. When we broke apart, panting for oxygen, he asked, “Am I forgiven?” “Less talking tonight. Talk tomorrow,” I said between pecks across his scruffy jaw. I nipped the smooth spot under his ear and inhaled a big dose of his pheromones. Not that I needed them. “Upstairs.” He guided me toward the stairs. With a single smooth swoop, he lifted me into his arms and carried me upstairs. Normally, I would have complained about weighing too much, or not wanting him to hurt his back, but the way he held me made me feel light, even dainty. And I wasn’t fool enough to argue. When he set me on the bed, I fell into the soft down of the duvet. Staring up at him, I remembered our first night together at his hotel. We might have had sex seven hundred ways to Sunday between now and then, but now, this, felt like the first time all over again. “You said no talking, but I’m not very good at following rules, so I’m ignoring your request for a second.” His dimple appeared. “I love you, Selah. Not a temporary kind of love either. I didn’t stop after our disastrous phone call, and I don’t have plans to stop. Ever.” “I love you. Truly, madly, deeply,” I whispered, lost in the depths of his eyes. He shook his head and chuckled. “You just quoted One Direction.” “Pretty sure it was a movie title first.” I sighed and rolled my eyes. “You know One
Direction song titles?”

About the Book:

Sex? Absolutely Love? Not my thing. I didn't do love or butterflies, but I loved him. I was screwed, and not in a good way. Selah Elmore is a smart, independent woman who knows exactly who she is and what she wants. She loves her life being a professor and popular pirate erotica author. However, when she leaves the Pacific Northwest to spend six months studying sculpture in West Africa, she learns she doesn't know a thing about love. Cocky, suit-wearing Gerhard charms her during a stopover in Amsterdam, but dashing, adventurous Kai sweeps her off her feet in Ghana. Sparks fly on three continents when perpetually single Selah discovers there's more to love and life than she ever imagined.

Daisy Prescott bwDaisy Prescott Bio:

Before writing bestselling contemporary adult romances, I dreamed of being an author while doing a lot of other things. Antiques dealer, baker, blue ribbon pie-maker, fangirl, freelance writer, gardener, pet mom and wife are a few of the other titles I've acquired over the years. Born and raised in San Diego, I currently lives in a real life Stars Hollow in the Boston suburbs with my husband, our dog Hubbell, and an imaginary house goat. Missionary Position is a spin-off from my first novel, Geoducks Are for Lovers. Like my second novel, Ready to Fall, it can be read as a standalone contemporary romance/romantic comedy.

She’s the one fire he can’t put out…
Jamie Lansing has had it bad for firefighter Smith Grayson for as long as they’ve been friends.

Plus, she knows that as a serial dater, Smith isn’t the type to settle down. But then a terrible, fantastic, mind-blowing mistake leaves her body craving more than one night.
Smith Grayson has only ever had eyes for one woman in town—his best friend Jamie. But convincing her a relationship between them will work is next to impossible with her refusing to see beyond his past. But when she asks for a week of no-strings-attached sex to get him out of her system, Smith knows this is his one

chance to prove he’s not just the man she needs in her bed, but the man she needs in her life.

Meagan's Review:

Ahhhhh can I tell you how much I love Lauren Blakely? I love her writing style and her stories and just her. I was very excited that this was my first book getting back into reviewing and of course Lauren didn't let me down. 

Okay so our story is about friends who of course secretly have the hotts for each other and yet can't say or do anything about it. So Jamie has had a crush on Smith (who of course is a fireman....SCORE) for awhile now. But Smith is the typical bad boy who dates women like he needs his next breath and that just isn't for Jamie. 

Smith....even though he's dated like every woman he comes into contact with, the one woman he has never been able to land is of course his friend Jamie. So then a few things fall into place and Jame and Smith have one week to have some fun. For Jamie it's to get Smith out of her system (I'm not sure that's really going to work) and for Smith it's a chance to prove himself to Jamie and to show her that they can work out and make the long hull. 

So one week of hawt as hell no strings attached sex. AND OMG it's firemen running into a burning building hawt. Lauren does not disappoint with this section. But the problem is Jamie and Smith are sort of on two different paths and at the end of the week what will happen? Smith wants this to last but can Jamie really get over his past...and he really ready to truly move on? And is Jamie really ready to let go of the best week of her life?? You'll have to read to find out if Smith is really a changed man or will he add Jamie to his long list of women. This book is def worth the read so make sure you go grab your copy.
