Release Blitz for Herd That by Lani Lynn Vale
The Valentine Boys #1
By Lani Lynn Vale
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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
We were introduced to the Valentine Family in Nico and Georgia’s book, Double Tap which is part of the KPD Swat series. Georgia is the older sister of the Valentine brothers. In that story, we were given the back story about the tragedy that nearly destroyed their family, as well as how they were trying to reinvent themselves, in their hometown. Now it’s time for the Valentine Brothers to find their HEA. LLV has a reputation for MC stories, as well as military and first responders being the main characters in her stories. The fact that The Valentine brothers are cowboys is a step outside of what we normally get from her. I have to say, I think it was a step in the right direction, because cowboys are HOT!!!!!
Ace Valentine is trying to make his family ranch a success, despite the bad history he has in his home town. He’s a hard working, puts everything that he has in him into making that dream a reality. He doesn’t think he has the time, or the want, for a relationship, until one glimpse of Codie changes everything.
Codie was a bad girl. She got into a lot of trouble as a teenager, and moved away as soon as she was able. Now, family obligations have pulled her back to the town of her childhood, and those mistakes just won’t go away. She doesn’t think she will ever be able to move on from them, but Ace knows what he wants, and will do what he has to convince her that she is meant to be his.
I absolutely cannot get enough of Ace and Codie! Their story was fun, and totally different from everything else I’ve read recently. Still in keeping with everything I love from this author, as well as being connected to other much lived characters, this series promises to take LLV’s stories to a whole new level. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for the other Valentine Boys!
