Sex in the Sticks

Sex in the Sticks (Love Hurts #1) by Sawyer Bennett 




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.




5 out of 5 stars


This was so incredibly witty and sexy! Single girl visits Alaska, adventurous fun. It's a perfect lighter read that had me smiling the entire time! Loved every single second!


The theme in my notes was fun and entertaining (I wrote that a countless amount of times!). It was just super cute and made me happy. I loved Valentine and Logan so much. The ease they had with each other as they meet and become friends and things develop was awesome. I loved that pull they had, the great conversations and dialogue. It all had me hooked. They were just so fun together. It was flirty and playful with witty dialogue.


I love Valentine. She totally put herself out out there trying new things with abandon and I loved that she was all in even though she was out of her element. I love how she doesn't really fit in but somehow she seems to belong there. Valentine’s just a tough chick and full of life. And Logan… oh my! Hello sweet, sexy, and dirty talking chief of police. I love how caring he was and just there for her. I was charmed by him. Loved the build to the heat as well. It was very swoon worthy! 


The writing was great. It was an entertaining, light read. It was pretty drama free except for a bit of conflict in the story that helped round everything out, I loved those ups and downs. They had good development as characters, enough to really pull you in. Val and Logan were extremely likable and I adored the town they were in and all the friendships that Valentine made.


I laughed so many times while reading this! It was the perfect read on the lighter side that just made me smile through all of Valentine’s adventures. Loved it! Definitely a feel good story. It would be the perfect beach read. Just kick back, laugh, and enjoy!
