Wendy's Review of Sex In The Sticks by Sawyer Bennett ~ REVIEW BLITZ ~


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.

This was a pleasant easy read. For the most part I did enjoy how the storyline went and the relationship between the two main characters. 

Valentine is a blogger who writes about her run-ins with men to her readers. Well when the men of New York City doesn’t appeal to her anymore, a suggestion from her cousin has her packing her bags and going to Alaska. She has a plan for her blog but what she wasn’t expecting was the town’s chief of police Logan. He puts a wrench in her plans and I was intrigued to see how it would all play out. It took me a while to warm up to Valentine but by the end she was likable. She was a go-getter but whenever she was with Logan, she was humble and pleasant. Logan was great for most of the story. He was nice and sweet and I liked seeing his attraction to Valentine grow. Whenever these two were together, it was enjoyable and sexy. I liked them together and I liked reading about the progression of their relationship. Their banter and interactions were great-funny and nice. Sawyer definitely had me entertained and enjoying the story. I also liked some of the supporting characters in the story-they were delightful. Overall, this was a nice read.



Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions. A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone. Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.
