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.

That is it. I am moving to Alaska and finding myself an Alaskan man. They are true gentlemen who know how to treat a woman right both in and out of the bedroom.
Valentine is trying to break out of her funk that she is in with the men of New York. She thinks that Alaska will be her solution because the odds are in her favor. And she hit the lottery with Logan. He is rugged, handsome, well-endowed and treats her like a queen. She knows what she wants in life and is not afraid to ask for it.
While I love me some alpha males I really enjoyed the fact that Logan was more on the timid side. Don’t get me wrong, his alpha male did make appearances especially in the bedroom but there was a softer side of him and I loved seeing a romance where the female is the dominant essentially.
I have read plenty of Sawyer Bennett books and this one is ranked high up there for one of my favorites. It’s light-hearted and fun and is not one of those stories that will rip your heart and soul right from your chest. It’s a quick and relaxing read, perfect for a day at the beach. Especially since the sun tan will hide your blush when you read some of the love scenes.
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.
