I stand up slowly and begin to fight what I’m about to do. I beg myself to sit down, look away, anything, but instead I trail up to her. She doesn’t flinch, doesn’t shudder; strangely, her eyes stay locked onto mine. I take the extra towel from her and draw her body to mine. I hear her left out a small gasp, and I can tell her heart rate has quickened. I bring a hand to her face, letting it trail from her cheek to her neck, all the way to the back of her head. I pull her in for a kiss. A proper one. That feeling I felt before returns as something inside me nearly loses control. My legs begin to feel weak as I realize that she’s kissing me back. It’s as soon as my tongue flickers over hers that I really feel I may lose it. I pull away for a moment and close my eyes. “This is how it’s supposed to be,” I mumble to her. I work to keep myself under control, I remind myself to keep a slower pace, not to rush. I catch a sudden wave of Red’s feelings…the want and need is there, and it makes it more difficult to control myself. I try to relax, remind myself to pace myself but when Red pushes her body into mine, I fully lose any control that I had. Her arms fly around my neck and I do nothing to stop her. Her lips find mine as her hands reach for my belt buckle. She wastes no time in unbuckling and unzipping my jeans. I reach for the last towel and yank it from her body as she pulls my tee shirt off and throws it across the room. She wraps her arms around me again and lets her lips find mine as I wrap my arms around her, lifting her in one swift movement. Her legs immediately cinch around my waist and I steady myself quickly as I push her against the nearest wall. She moans loudly and I feel her nails dig into my back briefly. I begin biting tenderly down her neck in a way that leaves tiny little marks but enough to make her groan with pleasure. I feel all self-control leave my body as I steady her against the wall and begin using my strength to lift her upwards as I move my mouth down her body. I feel her hands tug at my hair as I clamp my teeth down on one of her nipples. She releases another moan and I feel her breathing become choppy as I work my way down her core; kissing, biting, licking, and unable to control myself. I finally find myself in a squat position, I quickly adjust Red’s over my shoulders and I feel her shake. Everything in me wants to have her, every single piece of her right this minute. I need her. Not to just satisfy the raw animal craving that his built up inside me, but because I need every piece of the one thing that I ever wanted and needed so badly. I slow my kisses past her belly button and move to her inner thighs. I look up at her and her eyes catch my gaze. She’s breathing heavily, her legs begin to tremble more as I steady her against the wall as I drop to my knees to maintain my own balance. When my mouth finally latches to her, letting my tongue do the work for me, she releases a noise filled with such intense pleasure that there’s no going back. I need her even more now.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
If you are a fan of fairy tales with a happy ending, this book is right up your alley. This was the first book by Trista Jaszczak that I have read.  I was intrigued by the paranormal aspect of the blurb and was happy I received a copy to read.   
I thought the Ms. Jaszczak gave us a great cast of characters that got me involved with humor, sex and drama throughout the story.
The story begins with Red (aka Samantha) who was running away from an abusive relationship, when she finds herself stuck in the Louisiana woods due to her motorcycle running out of gas.   Ethan (the Big Bad Wolf) shows up and comes to her rescue, immediately you feel the sexual tension rise when they meet.
The story evolves around a curse that happened on a full moon, when Ethan's twin sister was killed. The moon curse changed Ethan's and his brother's moods and senses, especially during a full moon.   
As Ethan wants to help Red, the ex-boyfriend comes into the picture, hence the drama builds.  I won't give away what happens, but you will enjoy the ending, no cliffhanger.
The secondary characters are Ethan's brothers who are like little wolf cubs fighting and acting out all of the time.  The brother's antics had me laughing so hard, that I hope they will get their own stories one day.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a nice steamy romance with a mixture of paranormal and fantasy.

I give if a four out of five stars.
