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.


LLV has quickly become one of my favorite authors to read from, her stories are fresh and I always fall head over heels in love with her main characters. I know that a lot of her series especially the ones that take place in Kilgore have various connections and I’m going to need someone to draw everything up for me.

I’ve gotta say, this new cowboy series just might be my kryptonite because LLV lovedddd giving us all the glorious details of Ace Valentine. My oh my, Codie was in for a treat.

Ace is extremely-hardworking, has a completely heartbreaking story and he’s striving to make the best out of everything. And then we have the wild child that is Codie, he gets so much crap, which I didn’t fully understand why she got all this hate. But in the end, she AND Ace said what needed to be said to all the gossip birds in town.

I loved that that these two grew together throughout the story and they became better because of it. LLV knows how to write this very unique stories that has me devouring every single word.

It looks like I’ll be going back to reading her other series to make all the connections! Sooooo happy about this series and I’m ready for book 2!

major thank you to the author for the complimentary copy in consideration for a review. this does not affect my opinion of the book or review.
