I fell in love with his rope skills. I stayed because somehow he took hold of my heart and made it his.

Callum Valentine didn’t mean to eavesdrop. Then again? When a man is calling a woman fat right in front of your table, it’s kind of hard not to intervene. Especially when the town’s most beautiful creature ever is the one being called fat.

Desi just wants to be left al

I loved Callum and Desi. Callum wasn’t a man to stand by and watch as a lady was mistreated so he won me over pretty quickly. Desi had her insecurities but in the end she chose to love and accept herself and open her heart to another.

I liked the chemistry between these two. Especially how unimpeded and honest Callum was with his tastes. Their intimacy was hot.🔥Scorching! Their development was progressive and executed well.

The writing was distinct LLV and contained all the crazy hilarious antic

So these Valentine Boys are freaking awesome. I really liked Ace and Codie in Herd that but I think Desi and Callum beat them out in Crazy Heifer. Or maybe it’s just that there was a little more going on with Desi’s acehole ex and all the boys wanted in on the action so we saw a whole lot more of the brothers. And oh man the brothers. And the nephews, can I just say, are shaping up to be just as solid men as their father and uncles.

So Desi we already kind of knew from Herd That, being as she wa

The Sitch
Callum is eating at a diner when Desi’s horrid, horrid ex decides to call her names and basically act like an asshat. Callum stands up for her, and pretends to be her boyfriend. They are drawn together to prep for a race that Desi signed up for as a way to lose weight and thumb her nose at her ex. Cal and Desi grow closer, and yep, romance happens.
The Good
Ms. Vale has a distinctive voice and I think she excels in writing family and friendships. Those scenes are my favorite. I like that

The Valentine men will steal your heart!

Callum soon finds out he can’t stop thinking about Desi and decides to win her heart.

Hero has a especial thing for redheads, the sister was a redhead when she was a baby.. not that he’s into the sister but I’d think redheads would be the last woman he’d be into.

Let me be clear, I’m just saying that I think redheads would the least hair colored women he would be into. I don’t want certain “someone” saying I misconstrued the words. I know very well he’s not into his sister. Ok? Ok..

Loved that he loved her for her size! He saw beauty in her as she was. I did expect more of a push/pull based on how her ex treated her and how their marriage ended BUT I can understand why she didn't put up much fight because he never gave her a reason to doubt him.

Callum intervenes when he hears a woman being called fat in front of his table. Desi just wants to be left alone after her divorce. But her ex continues to make her miserable. Callum claims her as his and their game turns into more and boundaries are crossed they didn’t see coming.✨

I loved Desi and Callum in Crazy Heifer, they were both charming and funny. And they just clicked with me from the beginning.

What I didn’t care about was her ex-husband and all those hints about him learning the lesson, changing his ways in the future and most likely becoming a good guy. Don’t know if I would want to read a book about him, to be honest. All that fat-shaming turned me off very quickly.

I have become a fan of this author lately, and while normally I’m not much of a western romance reader, this one grabbed me with the synopsis and the snarky title. I have read a few more lately set in this kind of a setting, and so far I’ve enjoyed them for the most part. Now I have to say that something I do really like about this author is the way she writes her stories. It is a little different to me than other romances, in that we kind of go along just like life is. We don’t necessarily get ...more

Crazy Heifer delivers the next Valentine boy, Callum! I love that he swooped in to save our heroine from her super douche-y ex. He didn't even hesitate. After that, he quickly admitted he had feelings for her and continued to be her white knight.

Desi has a horrid ex and his new girlfriend is a wretched, hateful woman. So, they are perfect for each other, but they are brutal to Desi. Callum jumps right in when he sees them bullying her. Hello white knight! One minor issue I had with the sto

First off this title is everything. I mean I've never met a more creative author when it comes to naming books that Lani Lynn Vale. Also I love the word heifer. It's one of those words that makes me laugh every damn time.

I mean just give me a man who's going to defend my honour before he's even my man. Lord have mercy Callum just got it right in all the best ways.

Steamy with all the feels…

THIS! THIS STORY! This is why I love this author’s stories. Romance with humour, heart and family. One person loving another through it all – offering a shoulder to cry on and a giddy-up let’s roll when heads need knocking. Down to earth people who you sympathize with, cry and laugh with. And above all, love.

If you’ve read Herd That than the premise of this story is already known. And probably couldn’t wait to pounce on Desi and Callum’s story (just like me). Desi was d

I loved Desi and Callum. They meet in a restaurant where Desi’s ex and his fiancé are trying their hardest to be a mean as possible to her and make her life hell. Callum thinks Desi is a beautiful woman and her ex must have been crazy to let her go and decides to help her even the score with her ex.

Desi’s husband had been cruel to her and her self worth had been badly damaged. Callum was determined to build her back up again by helping her work out for the race.

Callum is real appreciative of his woman's attributes, “baby,” he said, his hands finally coming up to cup the heavy weights in his hand. “These things are lethal weapons. I never would’ve thought you could’ve fit all that gloriousness in that bra, but damn. You did a wonderful job.” Callum is a very touchy, feely man, "he pulled me in and laid a hot, wet kiss onto my lips before slapping my ***. “Something light.” I liked this book, I loved Callum. ...more
First things first; I love the cover of this book.
Crazy heifer is the second book in the ‘’Valentine boys’’ series. I devoured this book in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. I found the writing style easy to follow, the characters loveable and the storyline enjoyable. Desidara is a recently divorced woman with an obnoxious ex husband. When Callum Valentine steps into a situation and helps her, a friendships starts. Said friendship soon turns to love.

Okay, don't get me wrong, I'm an absolute fan of Lani's book and every single one has been devourable. I did enjoy this one quite a bit, but I didn't quite connect with it like I hoped. I've loved getting to know the Valentine brothers a lot and am definitely looking forward to the next one.

Desi's ex was the absolute worst! I truly liked Desi, but I wasn't really a fan of how often she was saved by Callum. As I kept reading through the book, the more it happened, the more it just wasn't sitting

From the moment Callum Valentine stepped in and put the heroine’s arrogant prick of an ex in his place, I was 100% Team Callum and ready to see what he was prepared to do to claim Desi as his own, for real, not just to prove to Desi’s ex that she is beautiful inside and out and he let go of an amazing woman for a witchy gold digger. And the fact that her ex-husband seemed to want to embarrass and belittle her anywhere and everywhere he could, I was ready for that lying, cheating and all-around d ...more

I’m really enjoying Lani Lynn Vale’s Valentine Boys series. I’ve read all of her books, I know all the back stories, and I’ve been waiting for these characters’ stories to be told for a long time. The Valentines have a tragic history, and of all Vale’s characters, it’s very rewarding to see these boys get their happily ever afters.

This one was fun to read. I liked that Callum stood up for Desi from the moment he saw her and how smitten he was, how he did what he could to be around her. Desi had some big issues to work through so this was the perfect approach. Watching Callum and Desi get to know each other was great! Every time Desi ran into her ex, Callum and his family was there to support her, something she desparately needed.

Dare I say I liked this book more than the first one in the series..? I feel like I'm cheating on Ace but Callum was just so... *le sigh* Damn, I adore those Valentine boys!

Desi & Callum (heck, the whole extended family) were great together. Loved how authentic they all were & how they banned together to protect Desi from her jerk-face ex & his stanky side dish.

I love people that are different. Those that march to the beat of their own drummer. Lani Lynn does that on two accounts. First, her writing is sooo good and sooo not the norm. Her characters march to the beat of their own drummers as well.

I think I love Callum Valentine, actually, I know I do. First of all the way he stands up when someone is being fat-shamed by their ex just made me melt ( I am a full-figured woman and I own it). He’s a strong man, he’s a kind man, he’s a family man, but he’s
