Bless Your Heart by Lyra Parish Release Blitz

Now Available. Bless Your Heart by Lyra Parish.

Summer Jones only wants three things in life:
1. Keep her house plants alive.
2. Open a beautiful bed-and-breakfast.
3. Never see or speak to Beckett Valentine again.

None of those things are currently possible.

Summer Jones and Beckett Valentine are rivals and have never wanted the same things in life except for the newly for sale Horseshoe Creek Ranch. Summer thought her dreams of building a B&B would finally come true until her number one enemy decides he wants the land, too. Beckett plays dirty and refuses to give her what she wants—a common theme in their relationship—and the dream of acquiring the property turns into a living nightmare.

They might’ve been at each other’s throats since they were teens, but the stakes have never been so high. And right now, she's more determined than ever to take down her best friend’s older brother—cowboy boots and all.

Bless Your Heart is a small town, enemies-to-lovers, grumpy/sunshine, best friend’s older brother, contemporary southern romance with a guaranteed happily ever after.

Warning: This book contains tons of Southern sass, sarcasm, and lots of spice! Fade to black is not included.

Each book in the Valentine, Texas series is a standalone.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the first book in a new series, and given that the numerous Valentine siblings all seem averse to settling down, or are too young, I think that we can settle in for a nice long run of books from this particular location!

There is plenty of small town chat and giving us the lie of the land, but at its heart, this book revolves around two super stubborn people who cannot see the obvious in front of their face. And by that, I mean both that they are clearly in denial of their romantic feelings for each other, but also the simple answer to the problem of the ranch that they both want (for totally different parts of it). I found that mildly frustrating – along with some of the Valentine clan – but it worked to emphasise their stubbornness!

I felt that they capitulated very quickly once they accepted their true feelings, but it was also very enjoyable to see them give in to their chemistry – and explore their evident compatibility! I am looking forward to the next installment.

Bless Your Heart is the first book in the Valentine Texas series and it starts with an enemies-to-lovers story of Summer and Beckett. These two have a long, antagonistic history that goes back to when they were in high school. Fuel is added to the fire when the farm next door to Summer’s family home goes up for sale. She wants to buy it to start a B&B and Beckett was to buy it to expand his business.

I loved the banter between these two. Even though they bicker and fight, it is clear they are both denying their attraction to each other. Sparks fly when they are near each other. I love that even their family and friends tell them they need to get a room. But my favourite thing about this story is that even though I could see where the story was going to end up, I had no idea how it was going to get there.

Beckett and Summer’s journey from enemies to lovers is good fun and incredibly hot. The two of them together felt natural and easy. Bless Your Heart is a great start to a new series. I’m looking forward to reading book two in this series, featuring Kinsley, Summer’s best friend.



Fighting with her is the best aphrodisiac there is, and I honestly have no regrets.
