Can he keep her safe from himself?
Little Red is the first book in the Believe Series by Trista Jaszczak. I always feel horrible when I don't completely love a book. So, I took a peek at some other reviews, and it seems like I'm in the minority. Most people seem to love this story. I love fairy tale re-tellings, and I liked that this one revolved around Little Red Riding Hood. I had a hard time connecting with the main characters though. Red/Sam seemed weak to me. I know she's had it rough. VERY rough, and I get that she's going to be emotionally damaged as a result, but she seemed almost child like in her behaviors. I never saw any character growth with her. It was odd. Ethan seemed a little child like in some ways too, especially when it came to his anger. I enjoyed all of Ethan's brothers though! They make me want my own personal body guard wolf pack. I loved them. All in all, this story just wasn't for me, but like I said above, I'm in the minority. It's a quick read, so give it a go. You might love it!
