My Valdez Valentine; Odds Are Good #4
(A standalone within a series)
by: Katy Regnery
An intense, page-turning hit, full of emotional topics. Katy Regnery kept me up late with this highly emotional book.
In My Valdez Valentine Addison, an LA divorce attorney, receives a desperate call from her adventurous brother that unfortunately cuts in and out. Elliot gave her bits of information that leads her to believe he’s in trouble. This isn’t the first time her brother has gone off on a dangerous adventure, but something about this message sounds more ominous than most. Addison heads to Alaska and hires Gideon, a helicopter tour pilot, to help search for him, fearing her brother may have little time left and since she isn’t familiar with the area she needs all the help she can get.
I love that even though Addison is smart and normally has a level head on her shoulders, when it comes to her wild brother, she does anything she can to take care of him. Addison proclaims not to understand misplaced emotions, or to ever succumb to the frivolous emotion of love, but the one exception in her life is her brother. She doesn’t want to give up the search and that is where Gideon steps in. Their connection is immediate, but she puts it on a backshelf in lieu of finding her brother.
Gideon is a helicopter tour pilot, so he knows the area, but he is not normally in the business of search and rescue. When Addison shows up asking questions about her lost brother, he offers his services and he’s drawn to her for reasons he can’t really explain. Gideon is just a good guy, no ifs, ands, or buts. He is the perfect mix of horny, hot male and sweet, loving gentleman. For Gideon his attraction to Addison is instant, but he also doubts his own attraction from her numerous times, which is heartbreaking, but also makes him very easy to fall for. Addison is quick to compliment and put him at ease, which lights him up. He’s very easy to please and super patient. Once you get to know both of their backgrounds you realize they are a perfect match for one another.
Gideon has a huge heart which he made it kind of hard to hide, but Addison’s lack of wanting to fall in love made it easy for Gideon to get away with him wearing his on his sleeve. He’s not a pushover by any means, so don’t misconstrue what I’m saying. Gideon is exactly what Addison needs in her life to help her understand the feelings she’s never experienced before. This is where I think they are the perfect give and take couple.
I love the chemistry they have, but constantly try to keep at bay. They are both extremely intelligent people and try to tackle their relationship intellectually vs. hormonally, but how long can that last….yeah I love this side of the human species, because chemistry and explosions are bound to happen eventually when the heat is turned up. Well done Katy! You are amazing and tackled some very tough issues in this beautiful story. Another hit in the Odds-Are-Good series.
Fall in love with Katy Regnery’s superhot Alaskan men…
When Los Angeles lawyer Addison receives a desperate voicemail from her adventure-seeking brother, Elliot, she hires Alaskan helicopter pilot Gideon (whom she first discovers via an ad in the Odds Are Good) to take her to her brother’s last known location.
