Wake up and feel the wood! In the first of a series of irresistible standalone romances from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett, a city girl rediscovers love and lust in the Alaskan wilderness.
Valentine French may be the sassiest dating columnist in New York City, but the abundance of metrosexuals in her adopted metropolis is seriously cramping her style. Where are the beefy all-American boys? Hoping to find some inspiration, Val heads to Alaska, where the men outnumber the women fifteen to one and wrestle grizzly bears for sport. Or so she can only imagine. Suddenly the most eligible bachelorette in a town full of horny lumberjacks, Val is writing her best columns ever. But if she doesn’t get her nose out of her laptop, she just might miss out on Mr. Right.
Logan Burke is the sheriff of the little podunk town that Val finds so charmingly backward. He’s not that different from the guys she’s using for her little experiment; it’s just that one date would never be enough for Logan. As he listens to Val complain about love over beers in the local tavern, he realizes that she can’t see the forest for the trees. Because if she would ever give up her Prada bags and fourteen-dollar martinis, Logan would give her the only luxury that matters: his heart.
I missed Sawyer Bennett's books, I was so excited when I got this one for review, I couldn't wait to get started!
Valentine is everything we wish we could be, super confident, rich, fun and beautiful; but she is really lonely, even though she hasn't figured it out yet. She is bored of NYC, so she decides a trip might be exactly what she needs.
The story was hilarious, she gets to Alaska and the adventures begin. This city girl is up for a bunch of surprises and mishaps before she can finally find what she was didn't even know she needed, but was exactly what she was looking for.
Logan was just WOW, a knight in shinning Armour in the middle of Alaska. He was there for her from the beginning and even though he didn't want to accept he liked her he couldn't stay away.
A match made in heaven. Once they come together, there's nothing any of them can do to stop the heat from consuming them.
But Val still holds many secrets and they might be their ending. She needs to shed her last walls and finally let someone in if she wants to find true happiness.
Just perfection! Like always a pleasure reading Sawyer's books.
