Overview

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER



The “emotional, spicy-hot story” (Belle’s Book Bag) that propelled Kelsie Leverich to the New York Times bestseller list!



Tattoo artist Ronnie Clark is counting the days until Valentine’s Day is over. Ronnie doesn’t do romance. She doesn’t do flowers or dates, and she sure as hell doesn’t do love—not anymore. Love leads to heartbreak, and she’s vowed never to let herself get hurt again.



Sergeant First Class Kale Emerson is home on his mid-tour leave from Iraq, but he only has one thing on his mind—returning to his soldiers to finish leading their mission. He’s dedicated to his men and to his country, and he’s not interested in getting wrapped up in a distracting relationship…but casual sex, that’s a different story. From the moment he sees Ronnie, he wants her. And he agrees to her terms—no romance, no fluff—just passion.



But as their sexual chemistry ignites, the lines of their arrangement get blurry, and Ronnie starts to push Kale away. And when Kale realizes he’s found his match in this razor-tongued, gorgeous woman who is hell bent against love, winning her heart could be the toughest battle he has ever fought.

Meet the Author

I am a wife and a mommy to two adorable knuckleheads, a hair stylist by day and a writer by night. My crazy life revolves around my family (to include two dogs and a cat) and most of the time, actually all of the time, it's a crazy mess—but I love it! Drinking wine and reading books helps, and I do a lot of both. I’m a sucker for romance, add some toe curling smut and I’m done for!

My favorite thing EVER is to snuggle on the couch with my kids in the mornings. Kindergarten has really put a damper on this...I'm not a morning person at all! I have a soft spot for animals (don't let a stray come to my house). I love musicals, hate seafood, and I really want a 1970 Dodge Challenger Convertible.

My passion is writing. It's the thing I think about when I wake up in the morning, the thing I think about in between packing lunches and giving baths, and the thing I think about when I close my eyes at night. A book can teleport you to another life, to another world. It can sweep you off your feet, make you fall in love, break your heart and heal your soul. I love reading for those reasons, and I love writing for those reasons.

    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.

    Ronnie Clark is this hard ass young tattoo artist. She followed

    Ronnie Clark is this hard ass young tattoo artist. She followed her fiance after he joined the military, after he is deployed she learns that he has cheated on her. She will never date another military man again!

    Kale Emerson, Captain America, as Ronnie calls him, is the handsome Sergent home on leave looking to get a memorial tattoo and maybe a casual fling while home.

    When Kale walks in to get a tattoo by the ""BEST"" he is surprised to learn that Ronnie is a woman, an attractive woman at that. He quickly learns that she is very smart mouth and not having any of the flirting he might want to dish out.  Needless to say he gets to her and they have a heated ""one nighter"", at least that is what Ronnie thinks. Kale on the other hand is just getting started.

    This book was not a typical guy meets girl and goes after her. It had a lot of moments when you really felt like you were in the story and trying to help break those walls down. Normally I don't get very emotional about a book but when Kale leaves to go back on deployment my heart breaks that she has pushed him away. To Ronnie's dismay Kale isn't giving up though and even from a far, still is trying to get her to talk with him. It's not until his unexpected return that you get to see her walls finally break.

    I really LOVED this book, it brought up some emotions that for me were hard but much needed. I highly recommend this for anybody that wants a romance that not only funny in parts but emotional and worth every single minute.

    I liked this story. Kale was great but Ronnie kind of got on my nerves.

    The story itself is pretty good, however, there is a MAJOR need for some editing. I always feel as though I was ripped off when I pay for a book and it is FULL of spelling and grammatical errors- really blatant ones, like changing from past to present tense mid sentence. As for the characters, Kale was okay as written. Ronnie needed a vocabulary lesson or something, because every time she opened her mouth, an F bomb fell out. Foul language doesn't offend me in the least, but it does get distracting when it appears in nearly every line of dialog from her.
