I have have found that I'm digging the romantic suspense books. I had a hard time rating this story, because I struggled getting into it at first.

The romance aspect finally picked up about midway through the story. There were some steamy sex scenes as well as sweet moments between Luke and Hayley. Once Hayley came back to town, there was noone else for either of them.

The suspense kept me reading to find out who the murderer was, even though I had a pretty good idea of their identity.

Ugh. I hate manwhores. Seriously, I don't understand why its sooooo important to make the Hero a manwhore??? Especially one who doesn't fight for the h.
Overall, this book was lame, the writing was mediocre, and the characters were bland.

She has come back home after her grandmother died and she inherited her home. In order to move back home, she broke up with her boyfriend Nick and left behind life the ...more

I really wanted to love this book and it did have a lot of hope but there was just something missing for me. I'm not sure exactly what but i found myself putting this down a few times then going back to it which I rarely do. I wish i could put my finger on exactly what didn't do it for me but it was part of lack of chemistry between the two MC's, maybe too much mystery, like trying to be overly mysterious, I don't know but obviously i can't put it into words. That being said it wasn't written ba ...more

Hayley had been friends with the Barton boys all her life as a teen she fancied Luke & acted on it before leaving town. That was 3 years ago now her gran has died & left her some property she's back.
Unfortunately while she's been gone Julie Barton has been murdered & others have suffered.
Luke isn't the same man he looks dark & broody.
This book is a standalone and has an ending.

I'm pretty sure I'd follow this Big Bad Wolf into a dark forest...just sayin' :)

I love these two authors individually, so to have them work on this project together was fabulous! Such a great book!

This book really had a bit of everything. Small town, second chance romance of childhood best friends Luke and Hayley, jealousy, betrayal and serial killer on the loose.

The killer is terrorizing the small town of Willow Creek and is starting to pick off loved ones of Luke and Hayley. Hayley decides to

This is my Second book from Isabella and my first from Frankie and I couldn't be happier, it was better than good, it was perfection.

The story had some pretty spectacular characters that weren't only hot, but smart and sweet, and deeply disturbed, just the way we love them !

Wonderful book. I have enjoyed many books by Frankie Love. This is the first that I have read by Isabella Starling so I will have to leave my review based on the books that I have read by Frankie Love in the past. This book is very different than what Frankie has written. This is a great story between Luke and Hayley. Just like any of Frankie's books it is love at first sight for Luke many years ago. With some time between them Luke and Hayley find themselves back together ago. Tragedy hits both ...more

Big Bad Wolf is a second chance romance between childhood friends, Luke and Hayley.
It was an enjoyable read that has a mystery/suspense storyline interlaced with the romance. There is a lot that happens so you aren't bored. I also enjoyed the main characters as well as the side characters. A good collaboration between the two authors.
