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.
EVERY SINGLE THING that Sawyer Bennett writes is PURE GOLD! SEX IN THE STICKS was just EVERYTHING I could have EVER wanted in a Sawyer Bennett romance. OMG! The minute I turned the last page, I wanted MORE!!! These characters, primary and secondary, were just MAGIC and I wanted to embed myself in their town, like they have embedded themselves in my heart!
This book will make you want to immediately pack up everything you own and grab the next flight to Alaska! Seriously, I’ve never wanted to get the Hell out of town more! Sawyer Bennett is making Alaska SEXY and I can’t even begin to tell you how ECSTATIC I am for this brand new series!
I want to drive a man crazy. I want him to look at me like I’m an oasis in the desert. I want a man who would battle an army just for the chance to be with me, and once he was with me, he’d battle a million armies just to keep me.
Valentine French is the type of heroine that I usually don’t like. But it only took a few chapters to warm up to her, and then after a while, I fell HARD just like I did for the sexy Logan Burke! These two characters could not have been more different, but they just worked, ya know? They clicked on every important level. They passed it off as a temporary fling, but they knew better. What they shared was something full of passion and seduction. They have this push-pull dynamic that made this the incredible romance that it is.
I think I fell in love with the small town of East Merritt the most. I wanted to jump in the book time and time again and live with these people and live in this charming and small eclectic town. I wanted to sit at their local bar and chat up the locals. I wanted to walk down Main Street without a care in the world. I wanted EVERYTHING from this book! And the characters, OMG! They stole the show for sure!
All you need to know is that a sex advice columnist and a small town sheriff walk into a bar…
“Brace yourself, baby, because I’m getting ready to make this pussy mine.”
The punch line is this AMAZING story! Valentine French needed a change of scenery in the type of men she dated, and boy did she get that and so much more! Logan Burke didn’t stand a chance with the sexy whirlwind that is Valentine French. Sawyer Bennett just let the SEXY TIMES roll in her latest MASTERPIECE of a romance. I absolutely devoured SEX IN THE STICKS and I am already CRAVING the second book in this amazing series of standalone! I have GRABBY HANDS big time people!
