When Sarah “Red” Ryder loses her job as an art critic for a Boston newspaper, she’s brokenhearted. Worse than that? She’s broke. Her boyfriend recently left her – for a tatted-up hottie with a dick – so she’s stuck paying her hefty apartment rent alone. After two months unemployed, there’s no money left. With no immediate family to turn to, Red reaches out to her estranged grandmother, a reclusive writer living on an island off the coast of Charleston. Several days later, Red receives $30,000 and an invitation to visit.
James Wolfe is not Red’s grandmother. But he beckons her. Red has the ability to give him something he needs. He won’t take “no” for an answer, and he doesn’t mind screwing her over. He lost his conscience six years ago, when he was tried for the murder of his wife. Since then, life is about him – and the paintings he does under the mysterious pseudonym “W.”
Wolfe needs the island to keep painting. To live his life away from prying eyes. To keep up the anonymity of “W.”
Once he sees Red, he finds that he needs her, too. And Wolfe will have her. Any way he can.
**The story of Red & Wolfe will be told in three novellas. The next one releases May 21.**
I slap a mental headline on my distress: ‘Canned reporter chokes to death on $20 wine’
Talk about having the worst luck possible! Red has lost her mother, her job, her boyfriend, soon to be her apartment and she’s down to the bare minimum when it comes to money and food. Applying for every job possible and selling all of her furniture Red has exhausted all of her options but one; reach out to her grandmother who she’s never talked to. Realizing that it’s her last option Red sends her an email and gets a reply back with one single word, come.
And this is where the story really starts to get interesting because it wasn’t Red’s grandmother who sent the email but Mr. James Wolfe! We’re taken on the mini adventure of Red and Wolfe meeting face to face and boy is it ever entertaining!
Overall, Red & Wolfe, Part I was my first Ella James’ book and while I wasn’t prepared for how sexuality explicit Wolfe can be I definitely did enjoy read this! But that cliffhanger!?! I can’t wait to get my hands on Red & Wolfe, Part II to see what’s in store next for Red and Mr. Wolfe. Don’t let me down Ella James!
Thanks for stopping by!
