    Book one in the new series Valentine Texas by Lyra Parish and it was a wonderful start. An enemies to lovers/small town romance that will heat up your pages and make your heart swoon. Summer and Beckett have been straddling the line between love and hate and it really came out when they both wanted the same property. A bet is in place and when Summer loses and must go on a date with Beckett, will their feelings for each other finally come out or will they just keep fighting it? The tension between them that comes off the pages is off the charts hot. Can’t wait to read what is next in this series because if they are anything like this book, they will be amazing.

    I really enjoyed this first book in the Valentine Texas series. If you love small country towns, Enemies to lovers, best friends older brother tropes this is the book for you. I love how sassy and sarcastic Summers is and how she won't back down despite Beckett wanting the same land she does. Their chemistry is off the charts despite them fighting it every step of the way. Once they give in to it be prepared for some serious steam. Did not disappoint and I can't wait to read the rest of this series.

    Summer and Beckett's story is soo good! I am a sucker for small town romances and now we get a new series from Valentine, TX. Summer and Beckett are basically enemies to lovers and it's so good. A little tension and angst makes for some excellent steamy moments. I am so excited to see what comes next from Valentine, Texas!!
