Wolf: Book 3 in The Fairy Tale Series By Jody Lynn Daniels. I love a second chance at love story and having it be and unexpected way just makes it that much better. I read this story out of order without and confusion but I’ll definitely be going back to read the others in this series. I’m a fan of stories told in dual point of views, it just gives readers a fuller picture and it’s a great way to see more of the story. The characters are complex and relatable, I found myself forgetting I was reading a book. Once I started I knew I’d be sitting for a while because no way could I stop until the vet end. It’s well written and paced nicely with amazing characters and I gladly give it five stars.

It normal to believe things without facts. What isn’t normal us avoiding the one person who could bring you a moment of peace. Mag and Sasha are adorable together than add Carson. Had a girl drooling. Had me ready for more babies with how he was with the kids. The author wrote freely and smooth. You could tell from how the story is setup that she cares for the characters. I like how I was able to read the story without stopping and wondering what was meant to be said. I think every story has a rhythm. I liked the way the words fit together.
I really enjoyed reading Wolf by Jody Lynn Daniels. It is the first book that I have read by this author and I really enjoyed her writing style and it didn’t take me long at all to really get into the story!
Maggie and Carson’s story was one that I really enjoyed following. I love the way the author really managed to get across how the characters were feeling especially Maggie, I felt like I was living through some of the story with her. I could feel the raw, painful emotions that the author poured into her. There were some moments in the story that were quite emotional and powerful and I have to admit I wasn’t expecting this at all. These painful parts were so beautifully written though and I could tell that they author had taken her time whilst writing them. I love that Carson wasn’t afraid to show his softer, emotional side also. These two characters were definitely connectable and relatable!
I would definitely love to read the first two books in the series especially if they are as great to read and as well written as this one is!
This is the first book I’ve read in this series and I was able to follow the threads with no problem. There were always prompts so I knew what was coming… “Will I need any special information on the children coming in?” Obviously there are secondary characters who have had their story told so it’s assumed we know what the setting is all about.
Told in a dual point of view, this story was easy to read and held my attention from the beginning. For some reason, I gave the lead male looks and a voice that sounds a lot like Sam Elliott from Roadhouse days. His name is Wolf and even though the title clearly states that it’s “The Fairy Tale Series” for some reason I never grabbed onto Red Riding Hood. I think I was just reading along and not comparing it to what it was interpreted from.
The kids in this story are sweet and adorable and the friend Abby – well everyone needs (I do, I hope you do also) to have an “Abby” in their life. What a great character she is.
I did enjoy the way the story was written. It is appropriately detailed, the story flows well (although at times I had to figure out who was speaking and look back at the heading) and it made me smile as often as it made me tear up a little bit. I think it was a good balance of emotions.
I would recommend this story and I will be adding the first two to my TBR list.

This is the third book in the series Maggie and Carson are the main characters. It’s an interesting example of fairy tale love. There is drama, strife and a couple rescues, but best of all love. Carson is the hero, and love interest. Maggie is the damsel and broken hearted widow of Carson’s best friend Sean. Although rocky at first the story smooth’s out and became the fairytale. Although not really a play on Red Riding Hood like it implies it’s a good fast read and I would definitely recommend it. It absolutely can be read as a stand alone.

Oh my…I loved this story, and this author transported me right into the story and I could clearly picture everything in my mind. I sincerely want to go live and work on this ranch.
I loved the storyline and how that progressed and was handled, I literally read this book in one sitting because I could not put it down once I started. It flowed perfectly and made me smile on more than one occasion. It also hurt my heart in other occasions and I couldn’t imagine how Maggie was able to function as she had, especially when someone from her past walks in the room..Wolf, the main she believes is completely responsible for her sadness in life.
I loved Wolf and thought what he had been through in life was awful as well, even if for different reasons.
This story was so awesome and had a sort of perfect sweetness to it that never felt over the top. I was really sad when it was all over, and the ending was simply spot on. I also can not wait to read many more books by this author, I truly loved her style of writing.

Wolf is book 3 in the Fairy Tale Series but it is my first book by this author and I am happy to say I enjoyed it. The main characters are Carson and Maggie. They’ve both had a rough couple of years and are just trying to heal the wounds that were left behind. Will they be able to help each other or will they make the wounds deeper? These two characters were awesome. They both love fiercely and that always makes for a better MCs.
Even though this is the third book in the series it can be read as a stand-alone, but after reading this one I’d like to go back and read book 1&2 and see what backstory was given before this one. I am looking forward to reading more and I would recommend this to a friend.
I downloaded this from KU. It looked like my type of story. Military man and a woman with a great family (I love those secondary characters). That cover drew me in as well! But this one was difficult to read and follow along with the flow of the story. The writing seemed stilted. Many times an action has already happened then it seems to happen again as the next character talks. Once half a chapter was repeated. When conversations are going on sometimes it difficult to figure out who is talking as the conversation moves along. Maybe some she said or Carson/Abby/Logan etc. said periodically would help with the flow. Confused more than once I kept stopping and re-reading to figure out who said what. That just seems to ruin the moment the author is trying to create.
As the story progresses I can’t help but like Carson more and more. Being a career military man he isn’t so stringent. He is good at laughing at himself and having a good time. The only thing that would have made him better was an introduction to his thoughts and feelings about Maggie from the time he met her to his last time with Sean. As a whole I liked his attitude and smile and some of his crazy thoughts. The whole mistletoe thing was great! ( I mean seriously what an awesome idea! Maybe the next holiday party! Yes!). Anyway reading Carson’s thoughts made me smile.
As secondary characters Abby gets the win! She is funny, thoughtful, helpful and always there when needed. She is a perfect secondary who is a joy to read. The other one I enjoyed was Jake. He added some fun times and made me smile for than once. Sasha and Stephen were typical cute kids and Logan is a nice brother who has a few lovely scenes.
This is listed as a fairy tale and if you keep that in mind while reading you can understand why the story is the way it is. I loved the idea of where this was going and with some tweaks it could easily be a higher rating.
Immediately engaging and brings an emotional punch. This book instantly grabbed my attention and connected to my emotions. The characters are relatable and endearing. I found this to be a quick read and one that I had difficulty putting down until I finished the last page. I have not read the other books in this series and felt this book stood well on it own. I look forward to reading more from this author and in this series.

Wolf (Fairy Tale Series Book 3) by Jody Lynn Daniels was a page turner, and once I started reading I couldn’t put this book down.
My first read from this author and from this series, I fell quickly into this sweet second chance romance. Well written, easy to read, this little wonder is full of passion, good feels, and puts a new kind of spin on a favorite fairy tale. Tolde in dual POV we get both sides of the story, rounding out this heart puncher.
As much as I loved this book, there were a few things that bothered me. One was the CPR scene, not so much the CPR in itself, but the fact that the person requiring it wasn’t taken to the hospital after. Anytime CPR is perform you need to take the casualty to the hospital, because there’s a good possability a rib or two got broken in the process. The other thing was that, Sasha, just kind of disappeared towards end of the book. She was such a force, and prominent character, then that, after a certain breakdown, the author, just kind of, left her out of the ending. I felt there was a missed opportunity there, especially with Carson.
Other then that, I loved the plot, and the growing connection between the two MC’s. Their romance grew at a steady pace, it never felt forced or awkward. There was time for both of them to grow and rediscover their emotions. Carson was a sweet guy, like, I think I fell for him. He gave Maggie space and time, but I do feel like if he told the truth from the get go, then it would have solved a lot of problems, especially when he told like three people before her. But as a whole, I think Carson stole the show and really carried the story.
Overall this story is sweet, heart melty and just full of those good feels. I’m definitely going to be checking out the other books, so please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will get lost in this modern retelling of red riding hood.
