Crazy Heifer by Lani Lynn Vale Review


* * * * * * * * * *


I fell in love with his rope skills. I stayed because somehow he took hold of my heart and made it his.

Callum Valentine didn’t mean to eavesdrop. Then again? When a man is calling a woman fat right in front of your table, it’s kind of hard not to intervene. Especially when the town’s most beautiful creature ever is the one being called fat.

Desi just wants to be left alone. After an ugly divorce, she thinks she’s in the clear. Then her ex takes it upon himself to continue to make her life miserable, giving Desi no choice but to take it or leave.

In fact, her bags were nearly all the way packed when Callum poked his nose into the most embarrassing spectacle the town of Kilgore has ever witnessed. The moment he declares her his and off limits, everything changes—and definitely not for the better.

As if things couldn’t get worse than being called a pitiful, fat heifer in front of the hottest man she’s ever seen, Callum has to go and say that she’s his, and they have to play a game that she’s not quite sure she wants to be playing.

But before her eyes, things change. And suddenly the rules of the game aren’t clear. And they’re crossing boundaries neither one of them see coming.

I’m really enjoying Lani Lynn Vale’s Valentine Boys series. I’ve read all of her books, I know all the back stories, and I’ve been waiting for these characters’ stories to be told for a long time. The Valentines have a tragic history, and of all Vale’s characters, it’s very rewarding to see these boys get their happily ever afters.

Crazy Heifer pairs Desi, a newly divorced woman finding herself after an awful marriage to an unfaithful, narcissistic man. Her ex is horrible, and he seems to live to torment her. Callum rides in to her rescue during one run-in with him, and I fell hard for this couple right then and there. Where her ex tore her down, Callum builds her up. Desi is strong in her own right, and I loved her upbeat positive outlook. This couple was so sexy together, they were so supportive of each other, so right for each other.

Vale could have gone in a lot of different directions with the Valentine Boys series. Considering their heavy, painful past, I’m glad she’s taken a lighter approach in telling their stories. Full of heart, heat and humor, Vale turns heart-break in happily ever after with a sweet, sexy love story between a cowboy and a baker. I loved it. Five smooches from me for Crazy Heifer by Lani Lynn Vale!
