I have three simple wishes:
1. Keep my houseplants alive.
2. Open a charming bed-and-breakfast in my small town.
3. Never see or speak to Beckett Valentine again.
None of those things are currently possible.
When Beckett decides he’s also interested in purchasing the Horseshoe Creek Ranch, my dreams of owning a bed-and-breakfast become a nightmare.
He refuses to give me what I want while playing dirty—a common theme in our rivalry.
Because of him, we’re in a ridiculous bidding war for the land.
We might have hated each other since our teens, but the stakes have never been so high. And right now, I’m more determined than ever to take down my best friend’s older brother—cowboy boots and all.
**Bless Your Heart is a small town, enemies to lovers, best friend’s older brother, contemporary southern romance with a guaranteed happily ever after. Each book in the Valentine Texas series is a stand-alone. Warning: this book contains tons of Southern sass, sarcasm, and lots of spice! Fade to black is not included.**
Bless Your Heart will be released in audio at a later date.
This book will also be published in German, French, and Italian!
Sometimes I decided to read books based on the cover, blurb, or author; this was solely based on the title. I absolutely loved the title, and the storyline didn't disappoint. This one was a cute read. Beckett and Summer are cute characters. I liked them both. They have this love-hate relationship going on that, at first, I wasn't sure if they actually liked each other. Their banter and chemistry were great. I enjoyed every bit of their story.
