NSFWBR: The Wolf: A Once Upon A Stepbrother Novella by Rachel Kenley

Monday, June 12th 2017

I was given this book through NetGalley and the publishers in exchange for an honest review!

This book,  Her Stepbrother, The Wolf: A Once Upon A Stepbrother Novella by Rachel Kenley, this book is a short sweet read especially if you want to read a novella that has a his/her also known as split perspective point of view. This novella takes the story of Little Red Riding Hood, while having an interesting spin of the classic tale, ( I also want to mention that the classic tale already had sexual allegory, so this spin off shouldn’t be much of a mental stretch). The wolf was very sweet the character of Red Riding Hood named Ruby’s interacting with this cute male wolf.

This book, Her Stepbrother, The Wolf: A Once Upon A Stepbrother Novella by Rachel Kenley, this book is a short sweet read especially if you want to read a novella that has a his/her also known as split perspective point of view. This novella takes the story of Little Red Riding Hood, while having an interesting spin of the classic tale, ( I also want to mention that the classic tale already had sexual allegory, so this spin off shouldn’t be much of a mental stretch). The wolf was very sweet the character of Red Riding Hood named Ruby’s interacting with this cute male wolf.

While reading this novella you’ll experiences the two characters grow together through their individual perspectives. Speaking about their individual perspectives lets talk about the relationships between these step siblings. I know for many anime fans of Ouran High School Host club, there is a true kink or rather sexual kink when it comes to twins, also known as Twinsst, along with just plain old incest from the fandom of Game of Thrones. But I warn you this isn’t a twinest or incest story, this is more of a I have the hots for my step sibling, type of book. SO if you’re looking for a novella that captures the taboo of siblings having sex this ain’t it!

I also need to say that the culture surrounding the characters, the nature of being in love with their step siblings is also not considered taboo. I also want to say, I’m not going to judge anyone if the incest in literature is you’re kink, just know this book has more of a step sibling kink besides it’s an erotic fairy take retelling!

What I love about this book is…

It’s Little Red Riding Hood turned erotic, seriously what’s not to like!
Both of the characters are likable, which is both a relief and a joy to read.
What really earns my prays when it comes to this book is the fact that the characters have chemistry. They are sweet characters from the first moment I meet them, during the sexy sex they did not lose that sweet chemistry that I instantly fell in love with.

I really wish this novella was a tad bit longer, I’m going to assume thats going to be a constant problem with me while I read novellas. I feel that the characters should have even more chemistry so I could squeeze a few more pages out of the author.It’s it so hard to beg for a little more time with these characters?

About Nicola Davidson

New Zealander Nicola Davidson always adored words, romance and history, so writing historical romance was a logical career progression…er, eventually. After completing a communications degree and journalism diploma she left to teach English in Taiwan and travel through Asia before returning home to work in television. Jobs in tertiary education, local government communications and print media followed, but the lords and ladies in her head wouldn’t hold their peace a moment longer and so began the years of professional daydreaming. When not chained to a computer writing wickedly sexy, witty and twisty turny stories, Nicola can be found ambling along a beach, cheering on the champion All Blacks rugby team or driving her nearest and dearest batty with her history geekisms, chocolate hoarding and complete lack of domestic skills.
