Sex in Sticks by Sawyer Bennett- my review ★★★★


My review  ★★★★

Sex in the Sticks was all kinds of sweet and adorable and wonderful! I thoroughly enjoyed it and I am sure that it has something to do with the way the author made me feel and how she provided such an atmospheric depiction of Alaska, more precisely of East Merritt.

Valentine French is regarded as the “ it girl” of New York city, thanks to her successful blog. She seems to have it all- she is rich, drop dead gorgeous and only party with the elite. However, despite, her wealth, Valentine has a disregard for high society. She is fed up with men in NY and essentially with the way they treat her.

“I want to feel really wanted. 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. Men here aren’t like that.”

She needs a change of scenery and decides to go for a vacation-slash-timeout, in Alaska.
“I’m all about what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. If men can date multiple women, so too can women do the same.”

Logan is the East Merritt Chief of Police. Everybody knows him and appreciates him. He notices straight away Valentine when she arrives as she was clearly out of her comfort zone and not your typical East Merritt woman.
He’s all -mountain man, I take what I want and I take care of what I own. He bonds quickly with Valentine and loves her sass and her no filter attitude. With Valentine what you see is what you get.
Valentine is determined to find inspiration in Alaska for her blog. Will she find her prince charming? Can the NYC sassy lady fall for the alpha male?

”We know there’s an expiration date on this thing. So let’s make every day count, okay?”

This is one hell of an entertaining book. The whole town is involved, gossiping and is cheering for Val and Logan ( apart from some women 😉 ) and there are some crazy mountain town people shenanigans going on.

This was another great Sawyer Bennett read..

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.
