Story Overview:
Lucy Grimm knows what it’s like to be on the outside. Ever since her curse kicked in on her 18th birthday, she’s lived in the woods on her own, cut off from everyone but the other cursed and slave to the cycles of the moon. Her one joy in life is spying on hunky Connor Redfield while he works at his grandmother’s inn.

Connor knows someone’s out there watching him, but he can never get close enough to catch them in the act. When he decides to take matters into his own hands and lay down a trap for the peeping tom, he doesn’t expect to end up with a bundle of nervous woman who runs every chance she gets.

He certainly doesn’t believe she’s one of the legendary cursed wolves that roam the woods.

For all that she’s fighting against herself, Lucy can’t help but like the burly lumberjack with a heart of gold. With the moon coming up on full, Lucy doesn’t dare trust herself when her wolf takes control. But Connor remains unconvinced and the more time Lucy spends with him, the more she longs to stay.

Can a cursed wolf find love with a mortal man? Or will her beastly side destroy her heart’s desire?
My Review:

This series is all things fun...fairy tales with a twist...LOVE that! The premise of the series is that the Grimm family is cursed. In this particular tale, we get the story of Lucy, a Grimm family member who is a wolf shifter. The problem with that was she had no idea about the fact until she shifted the first time and she was terrified. In that terror, she hurt her mother. After that, she fled and has pretty much kept to herself ever since. She doesn't trust herself not to hurt someone again, so she stays away.

But then she runs into Connor and she can't seem to stay away. He intrigues her. He calms her. Her wolf wants him, too. 

Connor has no idea who Lucy is. He just knows someone has been stalking him, so he sets a trap and catches this intriguing, almost-feral woman. He can see how skittish she is, but all he wants to do is take care of her and protect her. 

This was a really fun read. I enjoyed the story and the twists on the original fairy tales...there were hints at the huntsman, but also the big bad wolf and the grandmother. I loved watching Connor and Lucy interact. They're definitely explosive (and HOT) together. There was also a lot of little details about the Grimm family that make me even more intrigued. I can't wait to read more from this series. Luckily, I have it all waiting for me on my kindle. Yippee!
