Publisher Description

I have three simple wishes:

1. Keep my houseplants alive.

2. Open a charming bed-and-breakfast in my small town.

3. Never see or speak to Beckett Valentine again.

None of those things are currently possible.

When Beckett decides he’s also interested in purchasing the Horseshoe Creek Ranch, my dreams of owning a bed-and-breakfast become a nightmare. 

He refuses to give me what I want while playing dirty—a common theme in our rivalry. 

Because of him, we’re in a ridiculous bidding war for the land.

We might have hated each other since our teens, but the stakes have never been so high.

And right now, I’m more determined than ever to take down my best friend’s older brother—cowboy boots and all.

Bless Your Heart is an enemies to lovers, older brother’s best friend stand-alone contemporary southern romance with a happily ever after. Warning: this book contains tons of Southern sass, sarcasm, and lots of spice! Fade to black is not included.

Good Read!

Summer and Beckett's story is soo good! I am a sucker for small town romances and now we get a new series from Valentine, TX. Summer and Beckett are basically enemies to lovers and it's so good. A little tension and angst makes for some excellent steamy moments. I am so excited to see what comes next from Valentine, Texas!!

Steamy, Small Town Romance!!

A fun steamy, enemies to lovers, best friend’s brother trope-tastic story!
Beckett and Summer were absolutely fun together! I loved their banter and how they each got under the other’s skin all the time.

The most perfect farm house comes up for sale and Summer knows that this is the time to start working on her dream of opening up a B&B. The location is great, not too far from her family’s farm, and large enough to supplement the lack of many hotels in the town nearby, while still giving people a warm hometown experience. The only drawback is that she’s not the only one interested in it. Beckett would like to expand his horseback riding and training business and that perfect property is right next door to his farm, so the expansion would be easy and convenient to do.
The rivalry that began in high school heats up! Both in the sheets and out! Summer is a fun character who’s confident in her own sexuality and makes sure she enjoys it. She might not be the best plant parent, but she knows how to whip up some delicious waffles for her future B&B guests. She still holds a grudge against Beckett from high school, but perhaps it’s time to let bygones be bygones and embrace the woo and go for what she wants (whether she admits she wants it or not)!
Beckett knows that Summer gets under his skin, so he does his best to get under hers. He’s the perfect alpha-hole, who gives Summer a run for her money, but still knows her favorite flowers and her favorite order at the restaurant.
The secondary characters were wonderful! I hope all the family members get their own stories in future books! They offered interesting insights into the Beckett/Summer drama and provided their own hilarious commentary!

Listening to this story was such fun! I had trouble stopping and kept needing to listen to one more chapter. Summer and Beckett are perfect for each other and I loved following them along on their journey to love.
I’d recommend this to anyone who needs a fairly lighthearted, small town romance, with enemies to lovers vibes, southern charm, and a best friend’s brother trope all mixed into one! The story is a standalone and can be enjoyed by itself, however it will leave you wanting to read the next one!!

The narrators were wonderful! Each embodied the characters and gave a little southern vibe to the voices to help you picture the story properly! I hadn’t listened to either of them before and would be happy to listen to them narrate something again! It was duel narrated with the chapter’s from Summer’s POV being told by the female narrator and vice versa for the male. I listened at 1.15x speed.


Realistic story

This cowboy love story is not only an enemies to lovers story but a best friend’s brother. Beckett and Summer have fighting and dancing around each other for years. Everyone sees the interest between the two, they just won’t admit it. When the neighbor between them decides to sell, will they finally give in to their feelings or hate each other forever. I love how this story played out. It was written is a a very realistic way with lots of details and feelings. And I loved Kinsley’s bluntness and sense of humor.
