Sex in the Sticks (Love Hurts #1) by Sawyer Bennett (Release Blitz with Review)

A Love Hurts Novel

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.

This story was different from others that I have read by Sawyer Bennett this one had a much lighter feel to it and it had a minimal amount of angst that mostly came from misunderstandings.

Logan....well, I'm not sure what to say about him other than He had me at DIMPLES! ;) Geeze I love me some dimples. Not only is he the sexy chief of police for New Merritt Alaska but he is the sweetest man that is constantly going out of his way to help a wayward traveler from New York....Valentine. Valentine writes a blog about her love life including her sexcapades, a blog that her mother voices her dislike for on numerous occasions.  

Valentine has given up on men basically ignoring her while they are on a date so she has decided to see if men are like that everywhere, so her cousin Justin books her on a trip but doesn't give her much detail other than in Alaska the ratio of men to women is 15:1...sounds like good odds to me ;)
Overall this was an enjoyable read and a good start to a new series by one of my favorite authors, I look forward to seeing what she has install for us next. 

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.
