Wow, this book is pure smuth and I freaking loved it!!! I don't think I've read many books by this author but after reading Scarlet I'm pretty sure this won't be the last book I will be reading from her. The story does remind me of Alexa Riley's books, so if you're a fan of that author, you will love this story.


Beau and Scarlet are so cute together and it's of course insta love/lust for both of them. For such a short read that theme fits perfectly. I loved all the sexy scenes. They made the book

Beau Loup was a loner. As a landscaper, he focused his attention on his job instead of his social life. He worked and live on the property of a rich old lady who doted on him. His life was simple until her granddaughter came along.

Scarlet Fair was staying with her grandmother for the summer. Determined to spend time with her ailing gran, she never thought her summer would be an exciting adventure when she caught Beau's attenti

Sweet sexy story about a hero who knows exactly what he wants from the first sight. Scarlet and Beau take little red riding hood and the big bad wolf and turn it on its head. Talk about heating things to and keeping them smoldering. The sweetness though was my favorite part of their relationship. He adored Scarlet and showed her in all the right ways.
A special side character was the added bonus. Scarlet's grandmother Ms. Fair had me laughing and snickering the whole time. Throw in the perfect e

Another quick and sexy fairy-tale retelling this time in the form of Little Red Riding Hood, and re-imagined by author Aria Cole. This was my first book from this author, and it was a pretty enjoyable read.

Beau Loup, sees Scarlet Fair and that’s pretty much it, he has met the one, he just has to convince out innocent little red head that she’s as in love as he is and is happy for him to be the first, last and only man to ever share her bed, her life a

My favorite by this author. I think she found the perfect length...It gave everything I was missing in her prior books.. A little more emotional connection to the characters.
Aria Cole's stories just keep getting better. This is hands down my favorite story, so far.

Beau and Scarlett meet when she arrives at her grandmother's house for a summer long visit. Beau lives on the property and owns the company that does all the landscaping. He keeps to himself, but has gotten close to Scarlett's grandmother. Scarlett falls for him (literally) immediately. Beau feels how special she is and sets out to make her his. There is no way she can leave at the end of the summer.

Ok so it took me a long time to read a short book, so you know that I was left a little bored.
Story is very sweet and they are a great couple but... It was just so blah.
I love Aria Cole books and this is no exception while it was really nice, it did nothing for me.
Even the sex while somewhat hot, read to me like a rerun.

This is my favorite Aria Cole book to date. I loved Beau. He was pure alpha possessiveness mixed with kind and gentle. He and Scarlet felt an immediate connection when she came to stay the summer with her Grandmother. Low angst, insta love. One of the things I loved about this one was that it was a little longer than the others. This one felt more fleshed out. Aria Cole remains an auto buy author for me.

Personal Review:
This was a good insta-love romance between a gardener and a virgin.

Random Ramblings:
•The running away was a bit childish
•Love babies!

Overall Feeling:
Scarlet Fair is back to stay her her grandmother who is sick,. She doesn't expect to meet Beau Loup or to fall hard for the man. Beau had not planned to settle down, but one look at Scarlet he is questioning if perhaps he was just waiting for her.

This was an entertaining quickie. A retell of Little Red Riding Hood. You feel like you get a full story and enjoyed the chemistry between Beau and Scarlet.

All I can say about this book, is that it reminds me of, when you first meet someone and you have that chemistry and you start talking and then dating and then the whole intimate relationship begins.

And that is all I can say about this book, as the rest will just give the whole story aways

Aria Cole, Kat Austen and Alexa Riley are my guilty pleasure authors of choice. Over the top steamy romance that helps block out reality. These really are the adult version of fairytales.

Strong, tall, dark and handsome alpha males paired with sweet, loving and innocent heroines complete with a little bit of sass ;)

Seemingly complete opposites, Beau and Scarlet complete a void in each other. The age difference bothered me a little bit but I used my imagination and thought of Scarlet as older tha

Favorite story so far by this author. Beau was full of alpha goodness which is always a plus for me! Super hot story with a sweet romance.

This sweet story marries the classic with the modern fairytale, it's a short/fast pace plot with a juicy and enjoyable background story with instant lust/chemistry making panties melt in the whole journey. I adore all the book from the author and this one wasn't an exception, i loved as the rest.

Both characters were very lovable and i liked the age difference between them Beau was overprotecting over her and saying lustful things all the time (it was like a wet dream) he is also big, sexy and A

Fistly I like the cover, covers draw me to the blurb and it did that.

Scarlet is a quick insta love story.

Somethings are a little to quick, by chapter 3 the characters Bea and Scarlet have already got jiggy and it happened to quick for me, I like a back story, thoughts and feelings and getting to know the characters first.

It was hot, told in dual pov's, lots of sex with all the classic tacky alpha male lines such as Your mine and your pussy is mine but not much more.

“Petit rouge.” His growl hit my ears before my eyes fluttered open and I saw Beau Loup standing at my feet, eyes trained on my aroused body. “Jesus, aren’t you the sexiest thing I have ever seen?” beau closed the distance between us in a heartbeat, his body spreading over mine on the bench, one hand pushing into my thick hair, the other roaming my torso like he was looking for buried treasure.

“Mm, glad to make your acquaintance, Ms. Fair.” His gaze finally landed on mine again. His intense stare penetrating me to my very core. “I hope to see more you.” His words twisted in the wind, his tone and the wicked gleam in his eyes implying so much more.

Okay, I’m not going to look at a Cherry Pie the same way again. Whoa! Talk about a hot little story.

This is part of the standalone in the fairytale stories that are remade into modern day stories. They are all standalones and are very hot reads.

Beau is possessive, dominant alpha , and tender with Scarlet, Their meeting was epic and their love story is the same. Beau works on the estate and keeps to himself.

Alpha males. Sweet heroines. Two hearts. Two souls. Epic love stories.

Aria Cole is back at it again. Short, sexy, and sweet, Scarlett is a modern day take on a fairytale. These books are perfect for a warm afternoon read. They are quick, dirty, and oh so sexy. You fall hard and fast, just like the characters.

3.5 stars.

So this book is super cheesy and I rolled my eyes a bit BUT I did enjoy it. Looking at it as erotica, I'd say it delivered. Its great at the steam and all, it was their extremely quick relationship that had me on the fence however. If this had a bit more fleshing out of characters and the relationship/their feelings I may have liked it more. Maybe it's because I read a lot of 'mine' books and ones where there obsessed from the start and want babi
