The Valentine Boys
Release Date: January 21
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.
We first met the Valentine family in Double Tap (Nico and Georgia). We learned their heartbreaking story and briefly met Georgia’s brothers. This series is all about her brothers and their stories to find love and happily ever after.
Ace is running the family ranch. Day in and day out, he goes through the motions, always working to better the ranch and avoid the memories of what happened there.
Codie has returned to Kilgore after her grandfather had a heart attack. When she left she had absolutely no intention to return to the town that almost ruined her.
I really liked this book – not a whole lot of drama. I’ve read almost every LLV book and while Ace was great, I felt like he was missing the full alphaness that the other stories have had. I will definitely keep reading the series though!
