SEX IN THE STICKS
A Love Hurts Novel
RELEASE DAY – MAY 2, 2017
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.
Bennett has been a favourite of mine for a while despite not keeping up to date with her books. She writes steamy stories with some heat and substance.
So when I saw that had a new series with Loveswept coming out, I knew it was the perfect timing as Bennett got a certain flair that I don’t find in other books. She has a style that keep readers coming back to her and I was determined not to let another of her books be added to my overwhelming TBR.
Love in the Stick is the typical Bennett book we have come to love from her. I love the juxtaposition she has with this novel. A trust fund girl trying to find a real humble all American man . As Valetine maybe one of those Frenchs but she beats to her own drum. She happily take the perks but when it comes to her job and love life it a different story.
It is open book to the public as a dating columnist and her family isn’t too please. Val doesn’t care as it best of both worlds. But something missing in her life, she sick of the metrosexuals in New York. She isn’t that picky right. She just wants a guy she can have a real conversation with and not worried about 400 dollar hair cut
So with a hair brain scheme thank to dear cousin Jeremy. Val is heading off to Alaska where she can find the all American guy and enjoy the best of what Alaska has to offer. Plenty fuel for her column and she gets to scratch the itch.
However Alaska isn’t exactly the Ritz and Val is a rare commodity to the town where men a dozen and the nearest designer shop is hundreds of miles away. Having sex in the Sticks may be easy but Val isn’t ready for what in store. Especially for Mr Right aka Sheriff Logan Burke a city boy turned small town boy who knows what Val wants exactly but has no clue what Val really there for .
Plenty of laughs and funs but it just all fun and games ? As Logan isn’t going to settle being another of Val’s dates. He wants more like any true All American man .
Only if Vale will see past the surface and realise that the Podunk town she has ended up in. Might be the best decision of her life and allow Logan to get what he wished for
I love the set up for this novel and it didn’t disappoint. It was everything I expected from a Benettt novel. Her hockey stories where the stories that won me over like many others. She one of the first hockey romance authors that I read and I still love the Cold Fury team. However this light fun cotemporary romance hit all the right spot and stole my love in an instant. I devoured this novel to the point pure tiredness. I was up at 2am with a smile on face . Grinning as I watch Val fall for Logan and vice verse. I loved having older characters and honestly still I found this novel so relatable and fun
They were meant to be but then they were so miss matched causing some problems that gave plenty of moments . It wasn’t over the top . It was the perfect juxtaposition with this novel. Bennett knows what readers and her latest won’t disappoint readers.
