Bless Your Heart | Lyra Parish
#BlessYourHeart #LyraParish #ValentineTexas #bestfriendsbrother #enemiestolovers #smalltownromance #southernromance #grumpysunshine #familysaga
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.**

Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit! Bless Your Heart is an absolute SHOWSTOPPER! Within the first chapter, I had my bags packed and I was ready to sell my livelihood here in Tennessee for Valentine, Texas. But alas, I had to settle for losing track of time and spacial awareness of my surroundings while I settled into the small town in my mind.
The banter between Beckett and Summer is off the charts HOTTTTT! I’m a huge fan of enemies to lovers and Lyra Parish hits far beyond the mark. As an only child, I love how Summer isn’t your typical spoiled child. She’s a hardworking woman with a big dream — and she’s not afraid to fight for it. I completely related to her (lack of) success with plants and her dedication in continuing to try again and again, regardless of how many she destroyed. Despite everything, she has Beckett’s sister, Kinsley, keeping her uplifted and in a positive state of mind.
Beckett is hardworking and willing to put in his own fight for buying the Horseshoe Creek Ranch. But his ability to push Summer’s buttons ups the ante and makes the bidding war even more fun. At least for him. I love his relationship with all of his siblings, but especially his brother, Harrison.
This series is gearing up to be one of my all-time favorites! The supporting cast who will be getting to tell us their own stories are going to turn Valentine, Texas into a panty-meltin’, heart-stoppin’, boot-stompin’ heck of a good time! And I’m here for ALLLLLLLLLLL of it!
I received a complimentary ARC for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own.
