This is another collaboration between Alexa Riley and Jessa Kane and I’m starting to like these ladies writing together. Being a huge AR fan, I’ve really enjoyed the added elements that Jessa Kane has brought.
I didn’t think it was possible but Summer Camp Captive pushes an AR book even more over the top. Sure, we get the typical checklists that I love. Alpha, Virgin, insta-love, etc. But this book was more OTT than I could have even thought. Carver is just a gentle giant and you can’t help but want to make sure that he gets all the loving that anyone could possibly give him.
I think Lainey is where I got a bit disconnected. I enjoyed the fact that she knew exactly what he needed even if he didn’t. However, she shouldn’t know what to do. I should like the fact that she went from a sweet camp girl to taming the beast but something didn’t just click for me. Maybe I wanted her a bit more vulnerable. I honestly don’t know. But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t like her, because I did. I just didn’t fully connect with her. Yes, I said connect. Even with this small novellas, I think you should be able to connect to the main characters in some way.
Despite me lack of connection with Lainey, I really loved Carver. My heart bled for him from day one. I will admit that I have no idea how Lainey wasn’t terrified of him physically. I mean come on, even I was cringing a little bit for her.
Overall, I did enjoy this book. It’s a super quick escape with a different over the top insta-love that involves a lot of growling and demanding virgin.
