Sex in the Sticks by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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 love all of Sawyer Bennett's books, so when I saw that she had a new book out - I jumped at requesting it. I didn't think that I would get it and when I did, I got right to reading. It's unlike all her other books. It's not about hockey; it's standalone, it's not a suspense. It's just a heartwarming book about a guy and girl who meet and fall in love. You might be thinking that that's boring, but it's anything but boring!
It's about Logan, who's a Sheriff of this podunk town in Alaska. He's what you would describe as an all-around hot guy. He's six foot six of hotness and Valentine is interested in getting to know him on a deeper level. She's used to dating "metrosexuals" who are more interested in dating their phone than dating her, so for her to give up New York and move to Alaska, it's a huge step. It's a step that she's more than enjoying because of all things that are different there - the men being the main thing. She wants to date around and compare New York men to Alaska men, but she didn't count on Logan blowing all of her ideas out of the water. She also didn't want to share their relationship with the world on her blog. She wants to keep that to herself, so she takes her blog on hiatus. All good things must come to an end, especially when the good sheriff finds out about Valentine's blog. What happens when a couple of misunderstandings come between two people that are surely meant to be together? Check out Sawyer Bennett's new release and 5 star read!!
