    • **I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***Fellow PNR and UF bibliophiles!! You NEED to read this book! After reading ACOTAR by Sarah J Maas and getting sucked in to the Beauty and the Beast retelling, I found myself looking for other fairy tale retellings. And when this one was recommended to me by a friend I jumped at the chance! Boy am I glad I did. This story was fan-fricken-tastic (is that a word? it is now!) I do love a good shifter romance, but this is WAY more t [...]


    • I thought for sure this was one of those new fairy-tail retellings, which I love, really, but, it is so much more! The story line was phenomenally done; something old, something new! And Gerwalta?! What an original name! As I was once a young 20something, I found Geri's character relatable: knew more than my parents, first heartbreak is hard, werewolves and vamps lurking on my college campus uh The mystery and action was amazing throughout and I loved the side characters. The ending left me pant [...]


    • This was a nice twist on both the fairy tale and on what we typically know/assume about wolves and vamps. Wonderful urban setting with just enough intrigue to keep the reader interested. This is the first book of the series and although it appears to rap up the main events of the story, the bad guys are still coming. The good guys--Geri and the wolves--are still trying to come in to their own. And the romantic tension is bouncing all over the place. I'm not sure how that will all play out. Good [...]


    • 2.5 stars. This book has lots of good bones, but the execution is problematic. I liked the world-building but it takes a very long time before the story takes off and it does not deliver enough to keep my interest for another book. The ending is quite abrupt and deters from the current storyline.


    • I unreservedly loved this book. The writing style perfectly matched with Geri's character and the story unfolded beautifully and brilliantly. Urban fantasy is one of my favorite genres to read (probably my very favorite fiction genre) and is obviously my favorite to write. The world-building in this book was unique without being unbelievable (or at least any more unbelievable than an urban fantasy novel featuring werewolves, vampires, and hoods could possibly be). The characters are well-develo [...]


    • If 6 stars was an option I would give it.This series takes the fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood and updates it into a gritty, magical secret world. Geri is hilarious, smart and snarky, all while trying to stay out of a battle that has been going on for centuries that she wants no part of. The writing is superb, the emotions real. I can't wait for book 2. Total book hangover wondering what will happen next.


    • A great new Urban fantasyI really enjoyed this new version of an ancient tale. This is very different take on Werewolves & vampires, and now we meet the Hoods, a sect dedicated to controlling the weres.


    • Good read Really liked the characters, they were well thought out. The plot was unique and i look forward to reading more from Kendrai Meeks


    • This was so good!!!!! I was excited about this book, but I had no clue I'd like it this much. Fairy tale reimagining as an urban fantasy? Yes, please! (Also, Vampires who are scientists) I devoured this book in one day. Perfect for my plane trip homes! 4 stars because I think some of the world building and character development could be stronger (particularly for the supporting characters) but everything else was great!


    • I received a free ARC in return for an impartial review.The Grimm Brothers got the story of Red Riding Hood all wrong.If you got a chance to read the prequel novella Requited Hood, which gave the backstory of the Red Hood Chronicles, or even if you haven't, you'll definitely want to read Book One - Reluctant Hood. Slayers keep vampires in check (except that no one has seen a slayer for many years - they may be extinct), and Hoods keep werewolves in check. Geri is a nascent Hood of the prestigiou [...]


    • Enjoyed the story- very different spin on red riding hoodThis story builds a world where vampires and werewolves have their counterparts of slayers and hoods. Not to hunt each other but to work together. However the balance has been thrown off by an overzealous matron of the house of red.That is where the story beginsGeri the hood doesn't want to be a weapon for her mother to use against the werewolves and what starts out as teenage rebellion becomes much more through character development and G [...]



    • Can't wait for the next book!Loved the story line. Great read for a stormy day. Looking forward to the next books in this series, loved the twist and turns.


    • 2.5ish StarsI heard about this book through an author's blog. "The Reluctant Hood" sounded good and the price (99¢, at the time) was perfect for trying a new author. Unfortunately, what seemed a promising story had flaws that diminished the plot and characters.This book reads like New Adult as the heroine is in college and she's naive and, at times, immature. She also suffers from a serious case of TSTL while also irrationally denies she needs help. The fantasy elements are somewhat new but not [...]


    • Fantastic debut.I loved this take on the Little Red Riding Hood tale. A gripping story and lovable characters I was hooked from the beginning. A fantastic and wonderfully written debut by Kendrai Meeks. Bring on book two.


    • I loved the storyline. The Hoods for Werewolves and Slayer for Vampires. Love for others that are not allowed outside of their own groups. Geri going against her mother for what she believes not what her mother wants. Can she stay committed to her beliefs for give in to her mothers? Will she find her true love or for always be alone? Will she find out the truth of what's really going on? I can't wait for the next book in the series. I received a arc copy for my honest review.


    • OMG. Amazing storyline. The modern yet still supernatural twist to the fairytale was told perfectly. I'm 100% vampires when it comes to supes, so when they mix in, I'm all about it. Wolves and vamps seem to go hand in hand and can be a bit redundant, not in this case. The balance was perfect and Meeks changed up the common terminologies. Suspense, sarcasm, a little bit of heat


    • I just finished Kendrai Meeks new book Reluctant Hood and I LOVED IT!!!! I couldnt stop reading it! It kept me engaged from the very beginning. I didn't stop till I finished it. Now I can't wait for book 2!! Love finding new authors that are this good. Looking forward to many more


    • This is an amazing story full of werewolves, vampires, hoods and genetic research. Sounds totally weird, doesn't it?  But it works. I have been fortunate again to find yet another great new author and another great series. Geri is a descendant of the original Red Hood from the first family of wolf slayers, wolf caretakers and wolf police, all in one. This is explained in detail in the story, as the author creates a new myth and provides a different view of the traditional fairy tale. Apart fro [...]


    • Mystery, Mayhem and MoonlightForget everything you learned about little Red Riding Hood from the Grimm tales. Geri is little but by no means helpless. Geri does not ride nor is she wearing a red hood, instead she flees to Chicago to avoid her over controlling mom and future as a Hood. Think of Buffy, but instead of a slayer of vampires, she is a Hood, overseer to wolves.I loved this story. It has mystery, romance and evil villains, but are all vampires evil?  Are all werewolves to be feared? It [...]


    • Unique retelling of Red Riding Hood loreWhile this isn't a retelling so much as a reimagining of Red's descendants, it still more than satisfied my love of modified fairy tales and legends. Wanting no part of her families legend or any other supernatural myth, Geri flees to attend college. Where she finds herself smack dab in the middle of all kinds of supernatural activity anyways. Add in a wolf shifter who keeps showing up whether she wants him to or not, Geri finds herself in a mess without a [...]


    • A good premiseI like the basic premise of this book. New ways to look at familiar characters. Also introduced Hoods and Slayers as part of the paranormal world. Geri is interesting. She has a good mix of trust and wariness, strength and knowing her weaknesses. The book, in my opinion, can be more succinct. A lot of rambling explanations make it slow in spots. I love a story to paint a picture in my head using words. This book did that beautifully occasionally, but failed in others. Overall, I wo [...]


    • Reluctant Hood is a unique story that I enjoyed. The story was fresh and interesting. The author's writing style is not quite what I prefer but that won't prevent me from reading the next book in the series. There is a cliffhanger and there are plot execution holes along with some stunted and at times forced character dialogue.


    • I’m really not sure what I expected when I started this book but I know I bought it because Elizabeth Hunter (a favorite author of mine) recommended it, so I knew it had to be worth a shot. I’m glad I took a chance on it because I definitely enjoyed this reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood. I look forward to future books.


    • I really liked the beginning of this new series. The world building integrated nicely with the plot. There was mystery, relationships, lovely snarky sarcasm, and an ecology lesson in balance. And there are wonderful possibilities for the next books in the series.


    • 3.5 stars, good, a few wacky things that bugged me, but a little different and enjoyable. She is in college and rebelling against her parents. You slowly find out why, but it takes a while.Hoping this girl finds her inner bad-ass and kicks some butt soon.


    • Great book!I really enjoyed reading this book. The premise was unique and interesting. The characters were well developed and likable. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.


    • Red is not so little anymore!Really enjoyed this update to the fairy tale. I am looking forward to see where this story goeswill history repeat itself?


    • This book was so AWESOME!! I loved the story line and all that happened in it. I can't wait for more in this series.


    • Fantastic book with great storyline and fantastic characters. Lots of action and a totally snarky fun kick butt heroine. Loved it!!
