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
Review :Recently Red's mother died of cancer, then she get laid off from her job. If that wasn't enough her boyfriend comes out of the closet and leaves her with bills from their shared apartment. Broke and unsure of what to do she turns to her grandmother for help.
Arg, this author doesn't play fair. As a warning you will be left with a cliffhanger. What I liked about Sara/Red's character was that even when things were getting bad she didn't let it get to her too much. She wasn't above asking for help. This was such a great beginning to this trilogy. I loved watching the connection...well lust between Red and Wolfe. I can't wait to see what happens next. I would've been nicer if these books were a little longer but all well. Great short steamy story you lovely readers should check it out.
