Morgan is just looking to have a fun spring break until her workaholic mom brings along her new boyfriend. But when she ditches the two of them she ends up lost in a swamp, ankle deep in mud, and facing down a gator the size of Godzilla.
Rixen has been praying for God to send him his angel, his rightful mate who will live with him in the swamp and bear his children. When he finds the strawberry-blonde beauty before him in danger, he doesn’t hesitate to save her. Then claim his reward.
Warning: Okay, so, um, this is amazing terrible. This is so over the top, it’s on top of over the top. This book is on the level of ridiculous that surpasses all our stunts before this. You know what happens when we team up with Jessa Kane…but this is hands down the best/worst we’ve ever done. And we’re so proud we could wrestle a gator. Spoiler: There’s a lot of animal wrestling ahead. Grab your overalls and bug spray, we’re going in the bayou.
So, if you’ve read any of my reviews, you know I adore AR. They are my happy escape that I am always dying to get my hands on. And then when they add Jessa Kane, it’s like extra over the top filth yet sweet.
With that being said, Back River Quiver didn’t provide me that escape that I’m always looking for. Its not the kidnapping part, which I think most people would think was the issue. I swear, it isn’t. I’m a huge dark romance reader and that kind of thing is right up my ally. I just think the interaction between the main characters left me feeling blah. I found myself skipping and these novellas are too short to even have the urge to skip. Honestly, I think it was the way the Daddy scenes played out. Normally I’m OK with it. Not a huge fan but more indifferent but this one just didn’t work for me.
While this wasn’t my cup of tea this go around, I know that a lot will still love it because it does have many of the AR/Jessa Kane trademarks that we have all learned to love and crave.
