When Sarah "Red" Ryder loses her job as an art critic for a Boston newspaper, she's brokenhearted. Worse than that? She's broke. Her boyfriend recently left her - for a tatted-up hottie with a dick - so she's stuck paying her hefty apartment rent alone. After two months unemployed, there's no money left. With no immediate family to turn to, Red reaches out to her estranged grandmother, a reclusive writer living on an island off the coast of Charleston. Several days later, Red receives $30,000 and an invitation to visit.
James Wolfe is not Red's grandmother. But he beckons her. Red has the ability to give him something he needs. He won't take "no" for an answer, and he doesn't mind screwing her over. He lost his conscience six years ago, when he was tried for the murder of his wife. Since then, life is about him - and the paintings he does under the mysterious pseudonym "W."
Wolfe needs the island to keep painting. To live his life away from prying eyes. To keep up the anonymity of "W."
Once he sees Red, he finds that he needs her, too. And Wolfe will have her. Any way he can.
I’m reading another serial as you can see. It’s a completed serial so there’s my excuse. This installment is approximately 52 pages. I was able to read it really quickly.
I found both Red & Wolfe intriguing. Red has had some bad luck lately and is running out of funds. She’s getting to the point of being desperate. As hard as she tries she can’t seem to find a job for nothing. I like her character. She’s interesting.
Wolfe on he other hand is an arrogant prick. Truly. I’m not sold on him yet. I’m hoping that will change as the series moves along. I can say that the attraction between these two is very strong upon them meeting each other.
The story seems a little rushed, but I guess that’s to be expected a bit since it’s a serial. At any rate I’m looking forward to diving into Part Two.
