Sex in the Sticks by Sawyer Bennett

This is the first book in a brand new series (of standalones) from Bennett. It's about the filthy rich blogger, Valentine and the chief of police, Logan.

Valentine is tired of the men in New York and wants to know if there's another type of man around. At her cousins suggestion, she leaves New York and heads to Alaska where the men outnumber the women significantly and she can sample the offerings to her hearts content. When she disembarks the ferry she is greeted by the delectable Chief who not only drives her to the only B & B in town, but proceeds semi-arrest then rescue both Valentine and her dog (and more than once). Valentine is there for the flings and isn't interested in a relationship whereas Logan has no interest in casual hookups.

I liked this story although I didn't always like or understand Valentine. I couldn't understand why she wrote disparagingly of the town residents when they'd all -bar one- been nothing but kind to her. Also, she was 31 years old - isn't that old enough to stop giving your family the proverbial finger? She showed some growth and maturity towards the end of the book and that was great to see. I liked Logan's character a lot. He took his duties as the Chief of Police and town Mayor seriously but he also had a sense of humor. I think he was the ideal character to complement Valentine's. I'm looking forward to the next book!
