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.
Welcome to my stop on the Blogtour for Sex in the Sticks!
Sex in the Sticks is funny, very hot and with cute characters.
There were several hilarious moments in Sex in the Sticks, and there were even more extremely hot moments… I found the overall story to be cute, albeit a little bit cliché with the woman from the big city going to the Alaska wilderness to find a man who wasn’t metrosexual with a better manucure than her.
Valentine and her blog made me laugh out loud more than once, especially because she had partly started her sex-blog to shock her family. Sex in the Sticks started out a bit tentative, as Val left her big city behind, only to be surprised at how quaint her new playground really was. Logan was the perfect rugged hero. The local sheriff, sweet, hunky, tall, protective – he had all the best parts of a romance hero going for him.
My feels were invested in Sex in the Sticks, even as I saw catastrophe arriving, I was hoping it wouldn’t happen and things would continue to be smooth sailing. This is definitely a series I want to continue reading, as the writing was spot-on and the dual points of view worked very well.
He drones on and on, every single word out of his mouth more self-involved than the last. I tune him out. His lips are moving but my mind is far away, wondering how I can possibly be attracting men like this?
Fifteen men to every woman? And I’m thinking big, rugged manly men who don’t give a rat’s ass about fashion or manucures, and I bet their tans are natural.
