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.

I love Sawyer Bennett book! They tend to be gritty, thrilling and you can't help but fall in love with the leading characters and be invested with them from the get go. But Sex in the Sticks is a different sort of a tone, than the Sawyer Bennett books I have read in the past; they are light hearted and sweet.

The main character Valentine is a wealthy high profile blogger on the lookout for love with a real "man", she was sick of all the metro-sexual men that New York City has to offer, so of all places she could have gone to (and trust me I could name a few), she goes to Alaska! I just had no strong connection with Valentine, and that really detracted, from the book for me. Now don't get me wrong, Valentine is a sweet character, but I just found her unrealistic. Logan on the other hand, was totally believable and (in my head) totally delicious! His only downside, is he can hold a grudge…FOREVER!!!!

Overall I liked the book, but it didn't WOW me like the authors books normally does. And even though I personally struggled with 1 one the characters, I did enjoy all of the rest of the characters.

I give Sex in the Sticks 4 stars.
