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.
“Unlikely love, 5 stars”
The Valentine Boys series is a new one from Vale and it takes place in our favorite town of Vale’s, Kilgore, Tx. So not only do you get a bunch of new characters but you see some familiar ones as well if you’re a reader of Vales. I loved it. Ace and Codie are one of those couples that don’t make sense but at the same time do. I cannot wait to see where Vale takes this series.
Codie came home to the town where everyone still sees her as the wild teenage who caused trouble. When in reality she really wasn’t ever that bad. But it is what it is. She just plans on putting her head down, helping her grandfather on their farm and making sure he gets better. What she didn’t expect was for her neighbor Ace to take an interest in her. Will she be able to put aside her distrust and trust him? Or will she keep him at arm’s length.
Ace is still trying to figure out why his brothers and him all decided to come back to the town that holds so many bad memories. He’s working his fingers to the bone trying to get their new ranch off the ground and just make it. When his neighbor asks him for a little help, he can’t say no. He vaguely remembers Codie but he never really knew her. But he wants to know her now. Will he be able to convince her that he’s feelings are legit or is he wasting his time? Only one way to find out.
