My ReviewsHeat, Heart, And Secrets!

The RED Wolf is #02 of 03 in Werewolves On Heat Series by Ellie Valentina.

Meghan Kelly narrates the series.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

These are all in the same world, however I have yet to find any other connections. As of now, reading them as standalones should be OK.

Length: 4 hrs and 47 mins

Content Advisory:
There is sex, so if that bothers you then you should avoid.

♥ Story ♥

I was not able to find any direct character, location, or group connections between books one and two. If anyone has other info on that, please let me know. Both have werewolves as well as the heroine having majorly F*d up family situations. Josephine’s family life is not as heart breaking as Ava’s, but just as suspenseful.

Josephine ❤ Edward

Josephine Lancaster had a one night stand at her BFF’s wedding that left behind a gift of its own. Before she could process that fact, her father let drop his plans to be marry her to his much older business partner for better financial gain. Horrified, Josie ran and ended up getting a job with the last person she could of imagined, the father of her baby. Despite her bravery in avoiding a sham of a marriage, she turns into a big chicken when it comes to telling her baby-daddy the truth.

Edward Jake Hunter has secrets and trust issues of his own. After being used and manipulated for his gifts in the past, he is suspicious of most. Jake owns a construction business and is in desperate need of a new assistant, and is shocked to find the beautiful wedding fling as a potential hire. He wants her as much as before, but has reservations. Being the most qualified, he has no choice but to hire her. He knows she is hiding something, but is hoping its not as sinister as past experiences.

One might think they know how this is going to play out, but you would be wrong. The RED Wolf is so much more. There are several twist you won’t see coming. The secrets flow out at the speed of molasses, which can be a bit frustrating. It pays off if you can hold on and you will be left on the edge of your seat in the interim. There is heat and heart, and you won’t be disappointed. I was hoping for a side character to be the focus of the third book, but sadly, I don’t think that is the case. Maybe one will show up in a future book or spin-off series. Fingers crossed! 🤞

Normal speed was fine, but I found slightly slower sounded best. I listened at 0.95 speed. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

♥ Story ♥

Ava ❤ Chase

The Hot Wolf starts with a bang, quite literally!

The action doesn’t stop there, it carries on throughout the whole story. It all comes around full circle leaving you with a happy tear at the end.


​“I only remember his eyes,” Ava had insisted then. “His eyes were hazel, but the most amazing green and goldish brown mixture I have ever seen.”


Ava

Ava Sparks is an orphan taken in by Drake and Sandra Sparks at age 10, to which she was promptly put into training to be a werewolf assassin. She is on a job at the beginning of the story that doesn’t go as planned. The damage manages to knock some memories loose that she cannot account for. All of these events set her on the path to her future, just not quite the way she had envisioned!

Chase

Chase Elliot is gorgeous, a billionaire, and a werewolf. He is Ava’s “Hail Mary Pass” of a job to get back into her parents good graces. Once they lock eyes though, all bets are off! Neither one is ready to let go of the other, but secrets can only keep for so long before they have to deal with the reality of the situation.


“From the ashes of hate sprung great love.”
–Elena


All is not as it seems,and the twists are crazy good! The truth can hurt though when you are left with the quilt of your actions. Rufus will make you laugh. The horse falls asleep standing in the street! Seriously! I can’t wait to continue this series.


“Rufus is an excellent mount, and he loves a pretty woman.”
–Chase

This is my 1st read/listen by Ellie Valentina, and if I wasn’t already hooked by the end of the book, she would of clinched it with that last bit about the senator’s son! Looking forward to more.
