    One thought on “Hunter”

    1. I received Hunter as an ARC in return for an honest review. I’m sorry to say that it was not at all my cup of tea, for two reasons. The first is that the main characters seemed to have little to them besides sexual appetite. I love a good bit of sex as much as anyone, but I like to see complex people involved in it. The second reason relates to the first, in that the book feels like the outline for a much longer and more involving novel. Some more back story, some feel for how and why Isobel f [...]

    2. Isabel had no choice but to break up with Jason after it became obvious that they both wanted something different from their relationship. Isabel started working for Vincent. Vincent is a werewolf and he owns a casino. Isabel's father has a drinking and gambling problem, which got him in trouble and he lost a lot of money. Isabel is trying to solve her father's problems and is now living at Vincent's house. She thinks that this kind werewolf might be the man she needs to finally get over Jason. [...]

    3. This one just went by to quick, I realize that it's just 150 pgs and shouldn't expect a lot depth, however some 150 pg stories have surprised me, just not this one. I did like the plot but I felt no connection to the characters. I'm sure if it was a little longer, and if have contained a little more of the history I would feel so lost, It felt like I was missing part of their story. I can say this, with the little amount of reading about Izze/Belle, I knew she was going to be difficult to swallo [...]

    4. Ok when I read short books of the "romantic kind", I understand that things have to progress fast. But when someone accuses you of something and you run out and go do it within 24, nay, make that 8 hours, you are not doing yourself any favors. This piece really bothered me, even though the guy was wrong in all the wrong places. I felt set back as a woman and that's why I couldn't like the story more.

    5. **Contains spoilers**HummmI have mixed feelings about this one. I wanted to really like it, because it's a different take on what happens after "Happily Ever After" and that got me excited. However, this is a light novella, so it's far too short, and feels like it needed to be a full novel to fully understand the story. I think it would have been a much more enjoyable story if it started at the beginning where Belle and Jason broke up, the stuff with her dad, and how she met Vincent. I'm not sur [...]

    6. I love the end but the middle dragged down to the point I wasn't sure I would take the time to finish it.

    7. I loooove fairy tale retellings but twisted fairy tales are harder; they can be disappointing when the author goes too off subject or makes up something you just don't buy. Erin Bedford nailed it with Hunter. It was refreshing to read about something in the town golden boy's point of view. I didn't think there was any way to end up liking that character but here, you like him right away - and you also wanna slap the Beast - and Belle, too, for being with him. I really enjoyed it; Erin uses my fa [...]

    8. I just finished it and I have to say I couldn't put it down. This was a very good book and an interesting spin on fairytales. It's got huntsmen and werewolves. From the first page, I was hooked. This was a short story but will worth the read! I would love to have the world building more fleshed out. There are so many things I want to know more about, like the supernatural council for one. It's an interesting world filled with fantasy mixed with modern innovation. I received this ARC for an hones [...]

    9. True love prevailsThe saying "It's the quiet ones you need watch out for" is quite true. But it could go either way, they either turn out to be the best thing that happens to you or the worst. In this case it was both, but for different people. Isabel was the best thing that walked into, and out of, Jason's life. In my opinion they were great together. They made me laugh and love. The made sparks together.For Isabel, Vincent was the quiet one. Does she find this out too late? Can she move past t [...]

    10. 3.5! Super cute quick read.Super cute quick read with a sexy alpha hero who just wants his girl back. Set in a world where supernaturals have come out Jason has to get the love of his life away from her new werewolf fiancé. The was a safe read. He was celibate during the 9 mo separation. I'm going to check out Pirate next.

    11. It was a short, cheesy story. It's a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, with the beast being a literal asshole of a beast. So Jason 98% of all he did in this book was flirt with Isabel, and abruptly leave his store.In the end, Isabella and Jason ride off into the sunset. I just didn't feel it. But luckily it was short enough.

    12. OMG! This was my kind of book. A happy ever ending after all. I was kind of happy it was a shifter werewolf story, which I love and it turned out better than I thought. Good job Erin!

    13. This was an okay read. I have read Bedford's 'Underground' series and really liked it so I thought I would give her 'Fairy Tale Bad Boys' a shot. It's not bad per say but it wasn't is as good as the first book in Underground.This book didn't take the direction I thought it would go in. With a series title such as 'Fairy Tale Bad Boy' you would think that the main romantic lead would be one of the big bads from the tales of old but I am sad to say he is not. This story is just a bland erotica wit [...]

    14. This is the first book in this series and I really enjoyed it. This book is loosely based on Beauty and the Beast. Isabel felt like a girl from a fairytale who finally found her prince. Only this wasn’t a fairytale and her prince turned out to be a bit of an ass. Jason made a mistake and it cost him the woman of his dreams. Now she is dating a shifter. Jason has doesn’t care for anyone part of the supernatural community. It kills him that his mistake not only cost him Isabel but that she is [...]

    15. I absolutely adore the story of "Beauty and the Beast". So much so that I have read both the English and the original French tale (I took two years of French in high school, and it was just enough that I could translate the French in my mind). In my mind, Beast (Prince Adam in the Disney cartoon) and Belle are the perfect pair.I tried to come into this story with an open mind. I enjoy reading tales where the "bad guys" win, but because Beast and Belle are such a perfect pair to me, I don't think [...]

    16. Okay, I will be honest. I'm totally in love with fairy tale retellings, so I wanted to love it. And this story had me rendered speechless more then one time. It was confusing, because I actually loved and disliked it.You have to know, this is another twist of Beauty and the Beast, but not in the form you are expecting. It actually goes forward in time, so this is more the story of Beauty and the Beast AFTER the happy ending. The story itself is fun, and hot and swoonworthy, the characters all lo [...]

    17. I am also inclined to say the title is misleading with the whole fairy tale bad boy. I expected some references to actual fairy tales. you a big bad wolf who thinks okay to cheat and then hits the woman he is with because it wasn't alright. Then you have the ex who goes to comfort her, sees her in his shirt and basically all comfort is thrown out the window after has a nightmare and asks him to stay. Oh yeah, he'll stay but only if he's screwing her. I actually didn't mind the character of Jason [...]

    18. Jason and Isabel broke up because he wanted kids and she didn't. Because of this Isabel hated Jason? Not really sure why. And she apparently immediately started dating a werewolf. When the wolf shows his true colors Jason sees his chance to be the knight in shining armor and get the girl back.This wasn't terrible, just kinda meh. I didn't really get why Isabel acted the way she did so it stopped me from getting into the story.

    19. His girl had left 9 months ago, and had been living in the mansion of the Alpha were wolf's son, working a half a million dollars debt, that her father had amassed at the wolf's casino. He, Jason, never gave up on the pursuit of her. Isabel thought that the were wolf was attracted to her, but found out that the customs of the pack differed vastly from what her idea of a faithful relationship was. Luckily, Jason was prepared to go on a wolf hunt.

    20. This was half a book, it was not the beginning half, and it had so little substance and no character development so that it jumped from event to event without rhyme or reason. It was a digital freebie that I thought might be a fairytale retelling but thankfully; there was so little fairytale to it that I don't have to read it ever again.

    21. Terrible writtenOne of the worst books I've ever had the misfortune of downloading. Zero character development, not much of a storyline either. I've genuinely read YA and children's books that were better!!! Best avoid

    22. So started out strong, loved the opening scene. Isabel one of the MC's is a bookish character and I always get excited to read about a fellow bookworm. All was going well when it seemed like the author just wanted to get it finished and rush rush rushed the rest.

    23. Not a fan of this book. Editing seemed to be an issue in this story. I also found the characters' views on supernaturals (people different from them) to be off putting. There was zero character development.

    24. As good as a fairy tale While this book is as good as an children's fairy tale it is definitely for the adult who is young at heart. While I enjoyed all the characters in this book except one, what I really loved was the surprise ending.

    25. Short and sweet storyThis was a short and sweet story where the beast is not the prince of Disney tales but the true animal of legend. The Hero in this story is definitely the bad boy who isn't giving up on his lady. No matter what.

    26. A good bad boyI have a thing for fairy tale stories! Fairy tale bad boys are even better. Hunter and Izzy broke up, and she is now with a werewolf! But what happens when the were wolf turns into big bad?

    27. I LOVED ITA great story. One that will take your troubles away. A villain, a desperate female and the handsome ex-boyfriend. It made for a great story.
