ARC Review: Sex In The Sticks by Sawyer Bennett

I just have to take a moment to rave about this author. I've read many books by her including the legal briefs series, the Cold Fury series, the Sugar Bowl series, the Wicked Horse series and several standalones. I have to say that this author is one of the most talented versatile authors out there. There are a lot of authors that can do one thing well or maybe even a couple by Sawyer does everything well. This author can write about starry romance, hard core erotic sex, mystery/suspense, and just good old fashioned contemporary romance and she does it all well. This book is no exception. Sex In The Sticks is absolutely one of my favorite contemporary romances ever.

Valentine is a super rich New York socialite who is absolutely bored with New York men. For years Valentine has written a blog about NY men and her sexcapades with them. But recently, she has grown frustrated with men who spend more time and money on their hair than she does and can't resist any surface which might reflect an image of their face. Valentine wonders if there is something more out there and her best friend/cousin suggest that there might be and in might be in Alaska...of all places. Valentine packs up her little NY dog, a whole load of Louis luggage and her blog and heads to Alaska to find out if there is more to men.

What Valentine discovers in a small town in Alaska is the chief of police- Logan. Right away Valentine pegs Logan as the hottest thing in the entire state of Alaska. He also impresses Valentine as being a really good guy, the likes of which she is not accustomed to. But Valentine sticks to her plan to sow some oats in Alaska by dating a variety of men and blogging her experiences. She can't avoid Logan, however, because she keeps getting her citified self into various crazy situations from which Logan has to rescue her. The two develop an easy friendship and before long it is something much more.

I love the way Logan immediately claims Valentine once he acknowledges his feelings for her. I also loved how honest Logan is. I mean, geez, the guy made a couple of series mistakes (because he's a guy) but he was so straight up about claiming his errors and his plan to change, you just couldn't help but love him. Of course, the whole time you read this book, you keep asking yourself 'I wonder what would happen if Logan found out about Valentine's blog and the things she's saying about her Alaskan adventures?' We don't really want to know the answer to that but it keeps you on the edge of your seat.

The relationship that develops between this characters is a perfect balance of romance, friendship and humor. The sex is just explosive and Logan has a dirty mouth that I love! I actually had fun reading this book. I devoured it in one sitting and I highly recommend it.
