So the female lead Ronnie is a tough as nails tattoo artist and Kale is a sergeant in the Army who looks like Captain America (yum yum). I love the interaction between these two characters. Ronnie never gives him a break from her tough, rough around the edges attitude to keep from getting her heart broken again (her attitude I can relate to) and Kale just keeps at her.
Kale himself readily admits he has avoided relationships due to being in the Army. One of my favorite scene was when he put her to sleep rubbing her feet on Valentine’s day…it made my heart smile a little..What can I say this book was a nice easy read that was funny and touching. Not to mention it had a nice hot Captain America male lead rocking a nice tattoo..swoon…I read it in about two hours and I am glad I did.
Favorite Quote: “…I want all of you, not just our arrangement, but all of it. I want all of you”
The Valentine’s Arrangement has one strong, takes-no-crap, heroine in the story. And I love her! Ronnie, is a tattoo artist, who had her heart broken (and left her a bit bitter!) by her cheating fiancé, Brandon, who is serving overseas. She has sworn off soldiers and pretty much love itself. Until…Sergeant Kale Emerson, Mr. Yummy Pants Captain America, walks into the tattoo shop and pretty much rocks her world—but she doesn’t quite know it yet!
Sergeant Emerson is home on leave for just a week. He’s the typical male, who doesn’t do relationships and just looking for a “good time!” And what do you know, Ronnie is suddenly up for it too. So they make an arrangement (and I should say HOT arrangement). Just sex. No hearts. No flowers. No dating. And certainly not love. Just, well, just sex. My favorite scene has to be at the gym/during yoga class! Seriously…that has never happened to me in yoga class!
But hmmm…what happens when his leave is up or when the ex-fiancé rears his cheating ass back—do they freak out and bail? Or fall in love? Read it to find out!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book, it was fun and loved that the heroine was not a whiney chick! Hoping to read more from this author!
“You can stop mind fucking me now.”
“He committed himself to you and then he turned his back on you and your trust. He’s not a man; he’s a coward and a piece of shit.” (Seriously…super swoon!)
