The Valentine's Arrangement

I was lucky to have the author ask if I would like to review her upcoming book, which also happens to be her first! Well to say I hit the jackpot is an understatement! I literally felt like this when reading this one......

Ronnie is a sought after tattoo artist who is in high demand! Especially with the military guys! She is coming off a break up with her ex-fiancee and she hates Valentine's Day.. like really hates the cards, candy, flowers, the whole kit and kaboodle that surrounds the Holiday.

SFC Kale Emerson is the epitome of a military man. He leads his troops with an iron fist but you know he loves his guys. He is single, freaking hot and coming in to Ronnie to get his first tattoo. Well, I forgot to mention that Ronnie is no longer keen on military boys either. When she gets her first look at Kale she is totally like this...

Yep, Ronnie don't play that! She is badass! If it was me and I got that first look at Kale like she did I would totally do this....

Kale is home on leave and he gets a look at our Ronnie and he thinks she would look mighty fine underneath him! I loved the dance these two played with each other and the attraction Ronnie was fighting and well, Kale he didn't do serious commitments so they came to another arrangement, one both thought would work really well for the short duration Kale was home.. yep, it's what you're thinking!

Well, they really tried to keep it just a beneficial situation of two people getting their "needs" met and Ronnie with her....

attitude was quite impressive! It was irritating as you may think it just worked for the two of them. I adored the faux relationship these two shared along with the complexities that went along with a relationship such as theirs and what it would mean to both if things became serious.

I ran the gamut of emotions with this one! Hell, I don't know how you couldn't! It was freaking hot, sexy, amazing read and on the flip side there was real emotion and depth behind Ronnie & Kale that I felt I was really living the story at times. HOLY WOW!

This is a 5 freaking star read for me from this first time author. I'm telling you it was great! The issues that one faces while being either a military spouse/girlfriend or the service member were in the book and it's really a book that you can take notice of the behind the scenes and a small glimpse of what each faces! Kudos to men & women that serve our country and to their families too! The sacrifices they all make are tremendous and it's nice to read a book that brought it back in the forefront for me!

I was totally.........

I was dancing around like a fool at the end with my big ass grin and fist pumping that this author asked me to read her book? HA I'll be buying the book IT's FREAKING FANTASTIC!!! I can't wait to read more from Kelsie Leverich! 

This comes out on January 1, 2013 I highly recommend you buy it :) Don't you love the cover too :) Yep, fangirling I love it all!!!!
