Boned on Bluecreek: A Back Roads Novella
Moxie Darling (Author)
Boned on Bluecreek is the second book in the series. This book can be read as a stand alone. There is a follow up or insight on Clover and her men, Eustace and Jim.
Willow Spencer decides to go to West Virginia to visit her friend, Clover, after receives a letter from her. Clover has been living in the backwoods and asked Willow to come there. Willow will be working as a nanny for a widow with three children. She is a hippy / wild child with a free love attitude. Willow is instantly attracted to Teddy.
Teddy is still reeling from the death of his wife and not sure how to interact with Willow or his children. Teddy doesn’t really talk and is very standoffish to Willow. She tries to get his attention without much success, until she looks to another for some sexual attention. Teddy doesn’t like that very much, and things change between them after that.
Willow is a woman who just wants to be loved for who she is. Teddy is a man who is not sure how to move on with his life. These two help each other grow and change in positive ways. They both discover the other person’s sensitive side and vulnerability. Teddy and Willow each had fears and doubts, but they accepted the other for who they were (flaws and all).
This story still has the extremely, steamy sexual scenes and expletive language like the previous book, but it is so much more. This is a more complete story, in my opinion. This book has romance with a happily ever after. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I loved Willow and Teddy together. I loved that you got to know and understand the characters more. I loved “The Band-Aids” and “A Well-Read Book” concept or analysis. I have many favorite quotes, too many to list. One of my favorite quotes is:
“You Kiss me like you’re on fire.” “Because you make me burn.”
