Indie Summer Book Review: Kait Nolan’s Red

RedRed by Kait Nolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kait Nolan’s Red is a fast-paced roller-coaster ride of young adult paranormal fiction. There’s romance, adventure, shape-shifting, an evil plot, and a super creepy villain you’d never expect. Nolan writes deep characters, full of just enough teenage angst, combined with backbones of steel. Elodie stays strong despite her unfortunate circumstances. She draws on seemingly unending courage despite her unconventional upbringing. And Sawyer? Let’s just say this: I was a little ashamed of how sexy I found this youngster. He’s dominant without being dominating, strong and resilient without needing to prove anything (besides to his father, the alpha). There’s no sex in this book, but Elodie and Sawyer sizzle on the page together. And event after surprising event keeps you turning the page from the very beginning. Five stars!
