Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?…


Samantha Wentworth has one mission in life: to get as far away as she possibly can from her troubled past. When she finds herself on the Louisiana bayou, she runs straight into the arms of a very sexy Big Bad Wolf that she just can’t seem to resist. Will Samantha continue on her journey, or does the full moon have other plans in store for her?

My Review Red

🌟🌟🌟1/2 STARS.
Red (Believe #1) by Trista Jaszczak was at heart a lovely sweet read.
It is loosely based on the little red riding hood fairy tale in as much that Samantha Wentworth while on the run from her violent ex runs out of fuel for her motorbike on the outskirts of a town somewhere in Louisiana.
Deciding to camp in the woods till first light, Samantha is surprised by Ethan, running in the woods with his brothers.
Ethan along with his brothers have all been cursed with a moon madness, wolf senses and strength from actions they committed a few years back.
Nicknaming Samantha Red on account of her Red motorcycle helmet and red leather jacket.
Ethan proceeds to get his red out of the woods to safety in an old cabin in the woods.
Here the two connect only to be interrupted by Ethan’s Brothers.
So this story is told backwards which at first I thought a bit strange but quickly realised this worked.
The getting to know each other and connection came much later down the line.
You will get what I mean when you read this.
Ethan is less big bad wolf and more like big good wolf, he was such a sweetie.
I found both main characters to be extremely likeable though I did find Red to be a bit timid and introverted at times, easily upset.
Maybe because of her background, which in hindsight is very understandable.
There’s also plenty here to keep you on your toes.
A curse, Pack wars, plenty of humour and some super hot action to set those pages alight.
And the banter amongst the brothers was really amusing.
Gave me quite the giggle.
the only thing for me that pulled this down slightly was how easy the other pack went away, it didn’t quite make sense after the fuss they’d caused.
And the second thing was it took me a while to feel the connection between Red and Ethan.
I think this was because the brothers kind of overshadowed the pair sometimes.
So for myself, I would have loved to have seen more one on one with Ethan and Red, as the times I did experience when they were alone I really loved.
So, in conclusion, this was such an enjoyable tale and the fact it was loosely based on a fairy tale I loved as a child was an added bonus.

Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your life…


In Blair’s case it just so happens to be a pair of $8,000.00 shoes. When she’s given the chance to go to a masked ball to celebrate the rock band, the Huntsmen’s latest album release her two fairy godfathers flip her life upside down. She doesn’t believe that it could ever end in a one night stand with a rock star…and a lost $8,000.00 shoe…but it does. All Blair can think about is the mess she’s gotten herself into and all prince of rock Hunter can think of is finding the woman he spent a night with, even though his only lead is a single, red-bottomed shoe.

My Review Unmasked

 🌟🌟🌟🌟STARS
Unmasked (Believe #2) by Trista Jaszczak was all sorts of cute cute cute.
Part of the Believe series Unmasked plays around with the Cinderella story.
Blair works at an upmarket boutique in New York.
Employed by the Ice-Queen who hates her.
And also her two awful daughters.
Blair is persuaded by her fairy-godfathers the amazing Christian and Anthony to attend The Huntsmen’s masked ball in the Ice Queens place.
Here she meets Hunter/AKA Derek or D by his bandmates.
He whisks her off to his penthouse and after an amazing night wakes to find his princess gone all she has left behind is an $8,000.00 shoe.So unmasked was all sorts of fun, out of the two books in this series this is hands down my favourite it was just so romantic.
I loved the angst-free and the lack of apology for just falling in love, it made such a refreshing change.
Everyone needs a pair of fairy-godfathers like Blairs.
And Derek don’t get me started on him, that man was definitely a modern-day prince charming, every girl needs a D in her life to make her feel special.
The writing here flowed and pulled me in and I was smiling like a soppy girl throughout, which I am.
I was having a right Cinderella moment.
So yeh I really enjoyed this it was sweet, romantic and humorous and made such a pleasant change.
Who doesn’t love a bit of a fairy tale complete with a HEA.

Title: Scarred: Naughty Ever After #3
Author: Trista Jaszczak
Genre: Twisted Fairytale / Erotic Romance

Release Date: February 28, 2018

Who could ever learn to love a beast?…

Eric Morris had his priorities straight. Money, motorcycles, and models. That is until a motorcycle accident leaves him permanently scarred and angry with the world. He finds comfort in isolation, refusing to leave his own home for fear of what the world will think of the once beautiful man. With working beginning to pile up he has no choice but to hire a personal assistant to cater to his every need, including taking the force of his attitude. What he doesn’t realize is that Elle Davis is not like other women and she fully intends on putting Eric right into his place. Will Eric be able to make her see through his scars…will he be able to change for her?
RED

I close my eyes tightly, only to hear Ethan’s voice demand, “Look at me,” in my ear. 
I obey as I feel my body climax quickly. I let out a scream that surely frightens off anything else in the woods in a nearby radius. Ethan’s lips curl up, pleased, just before he leans in to smash his lips to mine. The kiss is all but brief and leaving me wanting more before his head yanks back and a low groan leaves his lips. His head leans forward to find my shoulder. His breathing is deep and ragged as he works to steady himself and brace me. 
My trembling and weak body finally begins to relax as it settles on me what has happened. Ethan finally raises his head to lock eyes with mine. His eyes have changed. They seem softer. Relaxed and completely satisfied. I can’t even open my mouth, despite having tried. He holds his stance and keeps me in place as my body shivers. 
“You’re cold,” I hear him murmur. 
I manage a slight nod. 
He smiles, plants a kiss on the center of my forehead, and begins to reluctantly move.


UNMASKED

“What’s wrong?” I ask, trailing into the room.
Christian is firmly planted on the employee couch with the television turned on. “I think you need to see this.” His eyes grow large as he points at the screen. I turn to face the TV and have one more sip of tea. He’s watching some celebrity gossip news show that I don’t quite recognize. What I do recognize, however, is myself from the masked ball plastered on the Times Square jumbo screen with the caption, “Have you seen my Cinderella? Cinderella, please find me again. Love, Hunter.”
I feel the cup slide from my hands and it crashes to the white tiled floor, spilling my tea everywhere. My mouth drops open and I have no idea what to say or do.
“I’m in the middle of Times Square!” I yell.
Christian gives me a silent nod as I hear the bell of the front door. I know that I should go to the sales floor, but I can’t. My eyes are glued to the screen, and my legs have somehow frozen in place.
“Blair! Christian!” We both hear Anthony who seems to be running towards us. He bursts through the break room door and glances at the mess on the floor. “Oh my God. You’ve seen.”
“I’m in the middle of Times Square!” I exclaim again as my head whirls.


SCARRED
I feel my mouth drop open slightly as I gawk at him. Makes me wonder what he’s talking about and if I can be nosey and pry just for a bit. I just have no idea what to say. I continue to stare with a slightly open mouth as I rock back and forth on my bare feet. I feel a chill run down my spine that makes me shiver and I immediately pull the white robe around me tighter. I watch Eric as he swallows and drags his hand down his face. He looks up at me with a pout. 
“I think I’m still trying to figure out why I had the accident. I certainly didn’t plan it. It just…” His voice fades off and he shakes his head. “I should have died that day.”
I give my head a little shake. “It wasn’t your time.”
“Do you really believe that?”
I chew on my lip softly for a second as I think things over and finally give a little nod. “I do. Clearly you weren’t meant to die on that road that day, Eric.”
He moves closer to me, so close that I can feel warmth radiating off his body. Another chill rushes down me and I hug myself tighter. I look up at Eric who is staring intently at me. “What did Lucian do to you?”
“It just didn’t work out.” I shrug. “We tried, he…I just wasn’t right for him.”
“He wasn’t right for you, you mean?” I feel the blast of warm air and smell of peppermint of his breath. 
I feel my body give a little shudder as Eric seems to lean a little closer to me. I can hear each breath he takes as he begins to study me again. I keep my eyes forward, a little nervous to look him in the eyes. I stare ahead at his neck and begin counting his heartbeat as I see each pulse throb…one, two, three, four, five….
“I’m just trying to figure you out.”
I giggle. “There’s nothing to figure out.”
“I’m willing to bet that there’s a lot more to you than you let on.” He tells me pushing my hair off my shoulder.
I shake my head. “I really hate to disappoint you. I’m pretty much an open book.”
His lips twist up at the corners. “An open book, huh?” 
I take a deep breath in and smell nothing but the sweet peppermint from his mouth. He’s standing incredibly close and I hadn’t noticed him take a step forward. 
“If you’re such an open book then why don’t you tell anyone what Lucian did to you?”
My mouth drops. What exactly is he trying to get out of me? The fact that I fell a little too hard and fast for Lucian and ended up having him crush my heart? I’d rather not take a trip down memory lane, thank you very fucking much. 
“Elle,” Eric’s voice grows soft as he leans down very slowly. 
I look into his eyes. I can’t think. I can’t speak. The smell of peppermint is intoxicating. My surroundings become blurry. I part my lips slowly and I feel my eyes begin to close. 
“Eric.” Lucian’s voice makes me gasp and jump back as he walks into the room. “I just wanted to see if you were finished.”
I step away from Eric, slightly shaken up, and a little confused. I cross my arms and take a very deep breath. I release it slowly and count to five to relax myself. Eric turns and gives Lucian a nod as he seems a little distraught himself. “Just finished.”
“I…I should get dressed.” I say, looking at Eric who is running a hand through his hair as Lucian is telling him that he can have the proofs ready in a few hours if needed. Eric gives him a little nod, but his head turns to me. 
“Did you have a good shoot, Elle?” I hear Lucian’s voice and even though I understand that he is talking to me I can’t take my eyes off Eric. 
Eric smiles. “Did you have a good shoot, Elle?” He repeats, looking back at Lucian who is staring at us both like we’re crazy. 
I shake out of the haze of peppermint and Eric’s blue eyes to nod. “It was great. I really hope they like the photos.”
“She was stunning,” Eric adds. “They’ll blow everyone away.”
Lucian raises his eyebrows and cocks his head slightly. “Alright, well…I can’t wait to see them. I bet they’re great.” 
“I’m really cold…I’m just going to get dressed.” Eric and Lucian both give me a nod and as I walk away I can feel their eyes on me. I have no clue what just fucking happened. I feel…a little panicked to be quite honest. I nearly kissed Eric. Or…did Eric almost kiss me? I have no idea. My heart is still pounding at the thought. I swear to God…looking in his eyes is just like being charmed by a snake who is about to eat you. Completely unaware of anything around you except him. And that…is terrifying.
