His Wranglers fit him like a glove. A really tight, leaving nothing to the imagination, glove. Codie wants nothing more than to shove that Wrangler-covered butt straight into the mud.
Ace Valentine has a smart mouth, a devil-may-care attitude, and those wicked eyes aimed directly at her.
She doesn’t know what to do with that kind of attention. Especially not from the sweet-talking man that has no problem charming every woman that enters his orbit—everyone but her, at least.
Ace isn’t sure why Codie Spears had her panties in a twist when it comes to him, but every snub and insult she hurls his way brings him closer and closer to falling for her.
He’s not sure what it is about the town’s bad girl that draws his attention, but every encounter they have leaves him wanting her until there’s nothing else left to do but have her.
The only thing is, she’s been convinced by everyone around her that she’s not good enough. Tell a person that she’s a piece of trash enough times, and eventually she’ll start to believe it. It’s going to take a lot of smooth-talking and gentling on his part to get her to see that she’s worth it.
And once he has her where he wants her? Well, she’ll make a mighty fine rancher’s wife.
What’s hotter than hot, rough and rugged cowboys with big hearts? Nothing. The answer is nothing. Ace Valentine rode straight into Codie Spears heart and found a way to plant roots and grow. Codie was a bad girl growing up and came from the wrong side of the tracks, so to say. Her family was not well liked, but that was then, and this is now. Ace knew what he wanted and went after it. The only problem is that Codie had a hard time believing that she was good enough. However, in Ace’s eyes, she was everything.
Another Lani Lynn Vale book that will tip the charts. She did a bang-up job starting of this new series. I can’t wait for the second installation into the Valentine brother series. Hopefully it will be Darby! No matter who it is, I know it will be amazing.
Going to be honest and say that I was a little nervous that I would't like a cowboy book but ummm, who am I kidding? Lani writes it, I freaking LOVE it! This book was amazing. I loved every second of it and quite frankly I really didn’t want to put the darn thing down. What an amazing start to a new series!!
Codie and Ace both have had pasts in their small hometown and both left….now they are back and the fun begins. What starts out as being bashful and ashamed to go out in public because people seriously need to get out of the past, Codie and Ace kind of stumble upon each other and find their company makes being in public not so bad.
As always Lani throws in some kind of drama but it’s fun, I laughed a lot. The plot was fantastic and its always amazing to have characters from the past intertwined with the future. I can’t wait for the rest of this series! I think I’m in love with a cowboy!!
