Publisher's Summary

Wake up and feel the wood! In the first of a series of irresistible standalone romances from New York Times best-selling 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 15 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 $14 martinis, Logan would give her the only luxury that matters: his heart.

    "Humorous light hearted romance 💋"

    First off I love Sawyer Bennett's style of writing.
    I buy her books as soon as they're available because she never disappoints.
    This one is low on drama and quite funny.
    Of course it's uber hot with detailed bedroom scenes that rock.
    It reminds me of the movie new in town with Renee Zellweger only this takes place in Alaska.
    When val tires of the metrosexual dating scene in New York there's only one place to go to find a sexy manly man... Merritt Alaska of course where the man to woman ratio is a whole town to two in vals case😄
    When cab service is not an option the local chief of police 🚓 Logan steps in to save the day.
    Sparks fly and it's just a matter of time before val discovers just how useful Logan's handcuffs really are.
    This book is more than just a romance it's packed full of great supporting characters that give a (northern exposure ) kind of feel to the town.
    Joe and Maxine did a awesome job portraying the characters.
    I would give this funny feel good listen 10 stars if I could.
    Give up the credit and start listening immediately!! It's worth it.

    Story
    "Private Benjamin in Alaska"

    Rich girl, completely out of her element. Beautiful man (not an a%#@&le).
    Turbulent start, fast moving story. Plausible love story, easy listen.
    Ms. Bennett does very well with these kind of stories but I don't purchase all of them because she has a formula that she sticks to. Entertaining but basic fluff. I still enjoy them very much.

    Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.

    Story
    "Moving to Alaska"

    My newest fantasy will be moving to Alaska and meeting a mountain man.

    Ok, not really but it sure was fun to live in this fantasy world Sawyer Bennett created. Valentine moves to Alaska to blog about dating "real" mean. Not like the type she meets in New York that have better manicures and spend more time looking at themselves than looking at her.

    What she doesn't expect is to meet the love of her life. Alaska is not the face paced life she is used to in New York and BEARS, so can she make her life outside the city and when her blog comes back to bite her in the butt... can she be forgiven?

    I loved this light hearted book. While completely predictable from the beginning, it still warmed my heart and was so hot and funny and sweet... I loved listening to it.

    Maxine and Joe are a power couple and their narration matches wholly. I love when these two pair up.

    "Usually love Sawyer Bennet works"

    Normally, Sawyer Bennet writes very engaging characters. Logan was. Val was NOT. When she said she wasn't good enough, she was right.

    "Never disappointed"

    I am never disappointed by Sawyer Bennett nor these narrators. Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are magic together.

    This story is a great city girl vs. rugged man story. I love the banter.

    "New narrators great story"

    This was an absolutely wonderful read/listen about a New York Socialite, Valentine French, blogger that is tired of the New York metrosexual regular men that she dates and decides that she needs a different scene. So she goes to Alaska where she runs into the chief and tries to meet different people but falls for the chief, Logan Burke. But what happens when the town finds out about the blog. This was so interesting and the chemistry between these two is great. Sawyer Bennett did a great job with another hit.

    Story
    "a little bit boring!"
    Any additional comments?

    I can fully appreciate that this is a smutty little light read and how that's enough for a lot of readers. I wanted to murder Valentine character multiple times, and while it was somewhat refreshing to have a rich, sheltered, city girl who isn't a snob, just naively ignorant yet also willing to learn, I just.. never got the point where I cared about her. At all.Since she is a trust fund baby she can do whatever she wants, and after a suggestion from her cousin, decides to test out the male population in Alaska. Val is probably the most difficult heroine for me to like. I really couldn't find anything redeeming about her other than the fact that she doesn't hide who she is or pretend to be less shallow or egocentric. Val and Logan has no chemistry !I didnt feel any attachment in between them!!!

    "don't waste your time or money"

    cue the eye rolling and watered down, lame plot. couldn't make it more than 1/4 way through before I had to give up. I love a cheesy rom-com but this was pathetic
