Review - 3. 5 Stars!

This is a nice, twisted F/F adult version of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale.  If this doesn't appeal to you, you might not enjoy this.  However, the twisted adult version of a classic fairy tale did appeal to me, despite not usually reading F/F (not really because I have anything against them, I just don't relate to them like I do M/F or even M/M.  I think this has to do with the fact I'm attracted to men, so even men attracted to men I can relate to better.  *shrug*).   

The story itself is a short and quite nice retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.  It was very sensual and I actually fairly enjoyed it.  There were however a few issues I felt could have been expanded on - even with how short it was - such as conflict Rosetta felt in certain parts of the story were missing.

As Rosetta, I probably over-sympathized in this short little novella.  It had to do with people calling her RoRo.  It's been my dreaded nickname since birth (thanks to an Uncle) and have finally give up on it thanks to my brother - who still uses it, and extended it to his girlfriend, her kids, and my nephew, who is 3.  Instead of confusing him, I just let it go now.  But I absolutely hated that name growing up.
The heat in this little novel was hot even to me, and I liked the story well-enough I finished it fairly quickly.  Probably again due to empathizing with Rosetta quite a lot for most of the story.  If you like F/F or erotic spins on fairy tales (or both) this is definitely the pick for you!  3.5 Stars!

She has officially diagnosed herself with creative ADD and often has a million and one writing projects going at once. In addition to writing, she is also a graphic artist who enjoys creating custom book covers for indie authors. She is definitely an artist at heart and would love nothing more than to be elbow deep in clay during her waking hours.
Rene believes that all fiction is based on some form of reality—otherwise we would never have the inspiration or knowledge to dream up the realistic situations we portray with our words. She is proud to say that her personal experiences have been inspirational, though perhaps not always identical to that of her fictional characters. Where reality and fantasy diverge, however, must remain her little secret...
