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.

It’s been a while since I’ve read one of Sawyer Bennett’s books, but I’m so glad I picked this one to get me back into her books. This is Sawyer at her best, with a hot, swoon worthy hero who is an Alaskan, mountain man cop, and a New York socialite who is in need of a real man, not a stuck up suit that New York tends to offer.
When we first meet Valentine, my first thought is that she’s going to be one of those stuck up socialites. She is anything but, yes she has money and is used to the finer things in life, but she also has a kind heart. The reason for the sudden trip to Alaska is to help with Valentine’s blog. She wants to find a real mountain man and see if there is a difference between them and New York’s men that’s when she meets Logan.
Logan is the sheriff and one hell of a mountain man. When we first meet him, you can’t help but swoon! He’s every bit the alpha mountain man, and a complete sweetheart! Every time Valentine and Logan are near each other the chemistry between them is sizzling. You don’t get much drama in the book, which was actually nice for a change, plenty of laughs and if you’re a sap like me, maybe a couple of tears as well. Another great read from Sawyer and I can’t wait to see what will happen in the next book of this new series!
Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions.
A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.
Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.
