Red & Wolfe is a short novella about a girl named Red. She's having a hard time. After losing her mother, her boyfriend and her job, she's getting desperate. So desperate she seeks out a grandmother she's never met. She goes to visit this grandmother on her island in SC only to discover James 'Race' Wolfe.

I loved that this novella had some humor to it. It also had some sexy at the end. I'm excited to see where the story goes in part 2 and I'm grateful it's out in a few weeks!

Fucking hell, I’m rocked by her surprises. For starters: the little redhead makes my dick hard. The righteous outrage. I’m glad I pissed her off. How fucking sexy is that mouth when she’s using it to slap me around?
I absolutely loved this short story and I look forward to reading the next installment of Red & Wolfe.

I fell in love with Red...

She wants me. She may not like me, but she fucking wants me just like I want her.

Most of us growing up had some type fairy tales read to us...they were ways to impart lessons... written long ago by those who thought they knew best. I don't need to list them all but in this tale by Ella James, there is the structure of Little Red Ridding- hood and the Big Bad Wolf.... and boy, oh boy, does Ella work it.

Sarah aka Red is struggling with life at the moment. She lost her job and her boyfriend to another man and has no money.

Even though she desperately searches for a job, she realizes pretty fast:

Since her mother is dead her last chance is her estranged grandmother. She never met her. Somehow her mother and grandmother didn't get along well. But she is too proud to contact her.

Dear Gertrude,
I know you don’t know me, but I know you. Aaaaand I sound like a stalker.

Red and Wolfe, is the first fairy-tale told in a dirty, absolutely sexy, dark and depraving way, by Ella James.

A contemporary retelling of the well-known Red Riding Hood that bares no resemblance to anything our parents ever told us about the little girl with the red hood, her grandma and the bad wolf..

You see you would love to be devoured by this wolf, James Wolfe. He is
a reclusive artist with assholish ways and many morbid secrets.

As for our Red? She is an unlucky, smartypants, with an affini

Very interesting start to a much liked erotic serial. There's an air of mystery here, as is often the case with island settings. I know things are just starting but Wolfe is pulling no punches, managing to seduce Red within minutes of meeting her. I really like the fairytale take on an erotic story so I'm hopeful this series will get better and better.
Loved this novella, but...

UPDATE: (view spoiler) It was so not sexy to me.

This is the second book (or installment) I've read by this author, and I didn't really enjoy it like I enjoyed Hansel Part 1. Not that it was bad or anything, but it didn't give me a thrill and I didn't care for the characters. I love the idea of Little Red Riding Hood retellings, bu

Instead, she gets a major amount of money deposited in her bank account, with the condition that she go to the Island immediately where her Grandmother lives.

James Wolfe is as sinister as his last name and he's got his sights on a feisty redhead ripe for devouring.

Sarah is as broke as one can get and desperate to get back on her feet. She's got a rich grandmother she's never known. And reaching out to her is Sarah's last resort. During a drunken pity party she emails her grandmother and receives an invitation to come for a visit. But she has no idea what's in store when she arrives.

Because it wasn't grandma who invited her......

I loved this spin on the old fairy tale...

Red is beyond desperate. After losing her job, and selling almost all other belongs she turns to her estranged grandmother. That's when she meets Wolfe, and hot damn!! Just my kind of character he is arrogant and sexy as sin...the two qualities I love most in my book men.

This is a baby book, as I like to call them and I am not sure how many are in the series. I am definitely hooked and can't wait to see how everything plays out

Well shit that left me wanting MORE! This was fucking brilliant! Ella, when do we get more!?

This novella packed a punch! I finished and thought "where's the rest?" I need it like yesterday! Of course I went straight to amazon and pre-ordered that baby!

We only get 4 chapters of Red & Wolfe but I felt connected to each character and that takes major talent to be able to do that in 4 chapters. This was the first time I had read Ella James, and now I am going to go buy everything she has written

Fantastic novella about a girl called Red, down on her luck and becoming increasingly desperate she reaches out to her estranged Grandmother. Under false pretences she goes to meet her Grandmother but instead is met by The Big, Bad, Sexy Wolfe.

So far it's a blend of mystery and sexual attraction and I can't wait to see how this Tale ends up.

First book of the year, and it was just what I needed: a quick, uncomplicated, sexy read for a tired and stressed reader looking for the perfect guilty pleasure.

The novella is part of a 4-book series and didn't provide much in its first 50 pages, except for a quick background of both the MC's, "Red" and "Wolf". I'm not gonna lie to you, the idea of turning Little Red Riding Hood into an Erotica book kinda turns me on and freaks me out at the same time. I guess it's the whole "innocent fable" thi

5/6/14 - Ella James - Red & Wolfe - 3.5 stars

Quote Love: I'm not surprised at all when she jerks her hips up off the floor and comes with a guttural shriek. But I'm shocked that I come with her.

What I liked: Ella James can write her ass off!!! I need to read more by her. I think I have some of her stuff and it just hasn't made it to the top of my tbr yet. (As always!) I love the idea of erotic fairy tales. I liked the characters a great deal. I cannot wait to see this in a full novel!!!

This novella is part of the Erotica Consortium's anthology - Bend. This was my first Ella James story and I could hardly believe when it ended. It left me wanting….wanting more!

I really enjoyed this twist on the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale. Sarah ‘Red’ is the perfect, modern day little Red and James Wolfe is one mighty fine big bad wolf.

WOW, this short story was something....Typically I know that in short stories the relationships tend to move faster than normal. But, these two move at cyber speed, lol, and they don't even like each other. I can't wait what happens in the next installments!!!
Straight up fun quick fantasy erotica!! on to the next..
