I was looking for a new author and came across this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Ronnie and Kale were awesome. I loved their interaction and seeing their relationship build. I loved the military aspect and the homage the author paid to military wives. Kudos! All in all a great book. I laughed, cried, got mad, and felt ridiculously happy for these characters. Any book that can make me lose myself in, is worth recomending. Look forward to this writers future works.

I quickly grew tired of the F bomb in this book. In the first chapter, the author created a new word: "f***ingly". The F bomb is over used and distracting.
It also needs an editor. There are many typos and many misused words (shutter for shudder, peak for peek ).
It's a good book for a first timer, but not great.

    The Valentine's Arrangement immediately appealed to me for a couple of reasons. One, I find there to be something so absolutely sexy about tattoo artists. Second, I really have never seen the appeal in a "man in uniform" and I wanted to experience it. Throw those two things together and hey, maybe sparks fly, right?

    I can say sparks flew. I can't say that they blew up into some uncontrollable bonfire. The Valentine's Arrangement is not quite that type of book.

    Ronnie has been wronged, in pretty bad way. Because of that, she has developed a tough skin and it takes some heavy doses of determined shrapnel to penetrate her barriers.

    Kale meets Ronnie when he wants to be inked for the first time. He didn't know he would be falling into the world of a 'saucy, outspoken and stunning' firecracker of an artist. He also didn't think he wouldn't be able to get her out of his mind. Kale doesn't do relationships. He does deployments and he doesn't think it fair to get involved with a woman when he can't put her first. Cue it... 'awwwww'.

    Yep, Kale is a keeper ladies.

    Kale is only home for a short respite and wants that respite to be full of Ronnie in his bed. He manages to worm under her armor enough to get her to agree to a 'sex only' deal until he leaves again for Iraq. But that arrangement doesn't go as either of them had planned.

    This is real sex. It's hot but it is somewhat tame. If you look for a kink factor in your sexy books, look away. You won't get it here. You will get a bit of an adorable love story between a couple of reluctant lovers. There is some added drama thrown in that I could have done without but the sweet factor mostly made up for that. You'll get a story that I can imagine a bunch of military wives/girls can relate to . You'll get a story about a real life type hero and real life type scorned woman just trying to find a love that fits.

    Like I said, it may not blow you away but it will probably still gently pull on the heart strings and bring a smile to your face.
