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.
First of all, the covers on this whole series are amazing! I honestly saw the series cover reveal and knew I had to find out all about The Valentine Boys. Their family back story has so much potential for dynamic, dark, and messy characters. Plus, the female lead’s back story of being the wild child growing up and the lasting impact that has left on her is a perfect way to get readers thoroughly invested in her! Unfortunately, I had trouble getting through it, which makes it really hard for me to rate this book. The writing just wasn’t for me, and I didn’t feel the story met the potential I thought it had. While this all made it not for me, I think that readers that enjoy this author’s style, will absolutely love this book though. Plus, I think each of The Valentine Boy’s story is going to be intriguing because of the back story. Which means I may have to give this author another change for book 2.
