USA TODAY BESTSELLER • Wake up and feel the wood! In the first of a series of irresistible standalone romances from 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.

Sizzling HOT!!!

4.5 Stars
This fantastic and highly entertaining book is the first in the Love Hurts series and it features Valentine French and Logan Burke. These two are complete opposite's. The New York and Alaskan lifestyles are completely different. When she was blogging about the differences in the men and Logan specifically, I thought she went to far in detail but I also think Logan took his overreaction too far also. When you injure a man by embarrassing him in front of his friends and family, it's a big deal. She was remorseful and tried to right her wrongs but with a stubborn man it's going to take something drastic to change his mind.

The characters in the story were fantastic. The writing was fantastic also. Keep the fan on because this is another HOT one! I can't wait to read more from this very talented author.

Love In The Alaskan Wilderness

Valentine is a rich blogger who's become bored with life--dating life included. Valentine swears love, marriage and kids are NOT in her future. Her parents weren't around while she was young and they each cheated on the other throughout their marriage. While she believes in a monogamous relationship, she just doesn't think love is in the books for her. Her best friend and cousin, suggests she change things up a bit and date a different type of guy. So she allows Jeremy to make reservations for her to go to Alaska where the ratio of men to women is greatly skewed in Valentine's favor.

Logan, Chief of Police and Mayor of East Merritt, happens to be in the right place at the time. He's in Ketchikan to pick up new police supplies when he first lays eyes on Valentine. He thinks she's drop dead gorgeous, but out of place. He offers to take her to East Merritt and so it begins....Logan is repeatedly called to "rescue" Valentine and her dog. He thinks she's hilarious, but a breath of fresh air.

Valentine has told Logan she's in East Merritt to date, but doesn't know she's blogging about her dating experiences. Valentine blogs about her date and sex life with Logan, but decides she can no longer share Logan through her blog when her feelings for him deepen. When Logan finds out about her deception, he demands she move out while he's out of town visiting his family. Valentine is devasted and heartbroken. She knows she doesn't deserve Logan, but doesn't know how she can live without him. Logan thought he found "the one", but doesn't know if he can forgive her.

Loved it, loved it, loved it! I think it was one of the sexiest, funniest novels I've read in a long time! This is a stand-alone, second chance novel. If you're into rugged, sexy, sweet, Alpha men, I highly recommend this novel!!! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
