Book Blurb: Taken From Goodreads

Elodie Rose has a secret. Any day, she’ll become a wolf and succumb to the violence that’s cursed her family for centuries. For seventeen years she’s hidden who and what she is. But now someone knows the truth and is determined to exterminate her family line. Living on borrowed time in the midst of this dangerous game of hide and seek, the last thing Elodie needs to do is fall in love. But Sawyer is determined to protect her, and the brooding, angry boy is more than what he seems. Can they outsmart a madman? And if they survive, will they find a way to beat the curse for good?

BOOK REVIEW:
Kait’s writing first came to my attention via Goodreads and I got to read her first novella in the Mirus series, ‘Forsaken By Shadow’, which I enjoyed. Kait contacted me about reading ‘Red’. I checked out the trailer and thought hmmm sounds like a take on ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, just my personal first thought. If you listen carefully to the narrator , it was a long, long time ago, Little Red Riding Hood fell in love with the wolf. This is the story of the repercussion of that event and what Elodie and her father are dealing with, now. 


I found myself easily turning the pages , this book has action, violence, a gorgeous chemistry , betrayal, discovery, loss, understanding and love.


Elodie has her own personal anguish to deal with and Sawyer happens to be there interrupting a moment that could have gone either way.


‘Red’ is told from both, Elodie and Sawyer’s POV’s. I enjoyed being in Sawyer’s head. I love Sawyer’s name and his character. I loved the way Kait made the reader feel the pull of Elodie and Sawyer’s chemistry. It felt very natural. They calm each other in a way that Elodie doesn’t understand, she just ‘feels’ better when Sawyer is with her. Sawyer is starting to realise there is more to Elodie. Could they have something in common?


The Barbie Squad are your typical pains in the ass , with their leader Amber , more so. You just want to give that girl a good slap. She is a thorn in Elodie’s side.


A little girl and her arrogant brother are kidnapped and Elodie is there to pitch in and help find them. He may be the jerk that caused her a lot of issues with Amber, but she knows the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Something is very off with this turn of events and Elodie is starting to feel like maybe she is being baited to be flushed out.


Elodie is trying to keep her wolf at bay , the transition is close , what will this mean for her, will she have to do what her mother did to stop the curse? She feels so alone with what she is dealing with, believing there is only one way to cure here cursed life.


Help and understanding is closer than she thinks.....
