Book Review of Riding Red – Alexa Riley

Gray Ridge, Colorado is a quiet town, but this Halloween there’s a mating moon, and the shifters’ need to breed their fated mates runs strong.

Ruby is the proud owner of Red’s Goodie Basket, and as the new girl in town, she’s looking for business. But when the local sexy sheriff, Dominic Wolfe, keeps the customers away, she finds it’s hard to stay mad when burning with desire.

Dominic is a shifter, and his wolf wants Ruby. Since the second he laid eyes on her, he’s been fighting the need to mark her as his. But when the mating moon is full, he won’t be able to control his wolf any longer.

Tricks and treats are the last things on his mind when the mating heat takes over, and his obsession is put to the test.

Warning: This story is a sexy twist on a classic fairy tale, complete with a red cape, a basket of goodies, and a hungry wolf. It’s written to make you smile, turn you on, and help you celebrate Halloween!

This novella by Alexa Riley is a sexy new twist on the old tale of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf… In Riding Red, the wolf is big, he’s not so bad, and he still has a taste for eating little women.

Ruby has just moved to a new town where she’s opened a new bakery.  As soon as Dominic, town sheriff and shifter sets his eyes on Ruby, he’s consumed by a need to mark her as is.

For those of you who likes Alexa Riley’s books with sex from start to finish, may be a little disappointed with this read as it feels more like a romance than straight-up erotica.

What makes this book hot is not the sex, (although, holy hot rough sex, batman!) but rather the over-the-top possessive and protective Dominic. The dude is totally obsessed with Ruby.

The lengths he goes to in order to protect his ‘mate’, and his internal struggles to keep his wolf locked down are sexy as fuck. The intense need they have for each other makes this one more erotic than just kinky fucking, at least for me.

If you enjoy massive muscled men being reduced to fumbling fools, this one is definitely for you.
