Asher Williams is obsessed with love.
It’s probably one of the reasons he makes such a fantastic matchmaker, love guru, and romance expert. And now that he’s in college, it’s finally his turn to shine.

Asher’s relationship advice column in the school newspaper is his strongest matchmaking instrument, especially when it comes to helping hopeless romantics find their soulmates.

But like every heroic quest, there are a few bumps in the road and dragons to slay.
There’s a damsel in distress Asher’s best friend thinks is a psychopath, a handsome prince Asher can’t stop drooling over, and a huge, mysterious roommate Asher can’t help but pester.

It doesn’t matter though. Nothing will stop Asher when it comes to helping people find their true love.
He’s absolutely positive everything will work out in the end.
Because love is always like a fairy tale…right?

The main romance arc spans across all three novellas. When Red Cried Wolf contains little romance but sets up for the rest of the series.

When Red Cried Wolf is a slow-burn romance with over-the-top characters, fairy tale references, ridiculous texts, and eventually, a happy ever after.

This was an adorable book. It was very fun to read. It was so entertaining that I just couldn’t put it down. I finish it in one sit, and it’s been quite a long time since a book manage to keep me that interested. It was a delightful experience.

What I liked about the book were a lot of things. Among them, the charming main character. The plot was interesting, even though I don’t really get the feeling that it has ended. I know it’s a part of a series, but I still expect a closure, which wasn’t so clear. It didn’t make me liked it any less. I also liked the secondary characters and the friendship between them. The use of names related to fairytales was lovely and it made smile every time I noticed a reference.

There were very few things that I didn’t like, maybe one of the strongest was the lack of love. I knew what to expect since it is very clear in the book description, but the heart wants what it wants. It was so much fun try to guess the potential love interest for Asher. I can’t wait to see where the story goes.

I would recommend it to anyone looking for a sweet book to read. It doesn’t have any angst. It was a lot of fun to read. It was a beautiful book.

I love to read M/M books. I’m still doing a lot of catching up with some series and getting to know some authors. I love to read stories with dark themes, a lot of angst and complex characters. I’ve always been interested on how mental illness is portray in books, so I would probably read any book with that subject. Here are some of my favorite books
