Black Crimson: A Little Red Riding Hood Story by Linda Kage
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

Camille had only been heading to her grandma’s house because Gran couldn’t figure out her cable again, but along the way, she stumbled across the city’s notorious graffiti artist. And now that she knows who the face behind the spray-paint can is, she can’t seem to listen to her friends’ sage advice and follow the safe path, leaving well enough alone. She’s determined to coax Black Crimson into agreeing to an exclusive interview so she can become the famous newspaper journalist she’s always wanted to be.

But in this contemporary twist to the Little Red Riding Hood fable, our red-headed heroine learns just how dangerous talking to strangers can her heart.



I received an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

Camille and Brick were two characters I had hopes for to become a couple. I loved all the interconnected stories inspired by fairytales and the story of this one inspired by Red Riding Hood was actually pretty funny.

When she finds out the face of the mysterious graffiti artists whose work has taken up to a vigilante look she will try anything to get an exclusive interview.

I thoughtfully enjoyed this book! It was funny, steamy with lots of cameo appearances and amazing characters. I always enjoy Linda's works as her characters could easily feel like real friends with their funny and emotional moments too.

This book was also amazing and easy to read. Recommended for its amazing characters and the slight twist to the tale.

About the author:

Linda writes romance fiction from YA to adult, contemporary to fantasy. Most Kage stories lean more toward the lighter, funner side with a couple meaningful moments thrown in that center around love and hope. Focuses more on entertainment value and emotional impact than realism. She likes the drama and crazy, over-the-top plots that make you cry then laugh, get mad then sigh happily.
