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.
Valentine is a dating columnist whose blog is successful, but lately she’s lacking inspiration, because she is getting tired of the same type of men in New York City. When her cousin suggests that she should go to Alaska to find dating inspiration there, Valentine quite likes the idea, especially because there are more men than women. When she arrives in Alaska she meets Logan,a local sheriff and Valentine realizes the life there is not what she had expected. Valentine and Logan couldn’t be more different, but sparks are flying from the first moment they meet. Is the spark going to last, when things get tough between them?
It was really fun and entertaining read, I very much enjoyed the location in Alaska and the characters, who didn’t fall flat at all. I didn’t like Valentine very much at first, but throughout the book I warmed up to her. I can’t say the same about Logan, he was a great hero from the beginning. Overall I enjoyed it and I’m excitedly waiting for the second book in the series.
