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.
Sex in the Sticks by Sawyer Bennett was nothing like what I expected! This was a fun, sexy and heartwarming romance about Valentine French and Logan Burke.
Valentine is a very well to do woman. She comes from a family of money and is sort of the black sheep of the family. Val live in Manhattan, does not work but runs a blog detailing her dating life. Which is boring as of late. Different guys yet all the same, she needs a change of pace.
At the persistence of her cousin, Val decides to go to Alaska to see how different the men are. She’s up for a new adventure, with some REAL manly men, and will document the process for her followers on her blog. She couldn’t have picked a more different world to relocate to if she tried!
A New York woman in the Alaska, what could possibly go wrong?
The minute Valentine walks off the boat, Logan Burke, Chief of Police for East Merritt, knows she is going to be a hot commodity in his town. In a place consisting of mostly lumberjacks, fishermen and loggers, and VERY few woman, a Manhattan princess is unheard of. Little does Logan know that is exactly what Valentine is counting on.
“I’m a man-eater. I love men. I love to date, I love to be treated well, and I love good sex.”
Logan and Valentine keep running into each other day after day and they begin a friendship. Until more of the town’s men start taking in interest in Val and asking her on dates. Logan has no right to be jealous, should he?
Logan and Valentine had such great chemistry. I love the fact they became fast friends and how extremely caring and helpful Logan was. Even though Logan knew this city slicker didn’t know what she was doing, he went out of his way to be helpful, all while maintaining a safe distance from the drop dead gorgeous woman who everyone loved.
The man is a complete gentleman….but inside the bedroom….HOT DAMN. Those sex scenes? I’m still blushing! (But I loved every single word of it😉)
Also, I loved the Alaskan backdrop. It was something totally unique and fun to read about. Lumberjacks, fisherman and loggers..OH MY!!
Will Valentine and Logan be able to make the most of their time together before she heads back to New York? What will Logan do once he reads her blog? One click Sex in the Sticks today and find out!
