The Valentine's Day Disaster by Lori Wilde  A Twilight, Texas Novella 

Valentine's Day can be a real disaster … even in a town like Twilight, Texas!
These days, event planner Sesty Snow is no fan of hearts, flowers, or goo-goo eyes over dinner. She's learned to be in control of her life and her emotions. Still, running Twilight's annual Valentine's Day bachelor auction is right up her alley—until her high school sweetheart zooms back into town. He's still heart-stoppingly handsome, but it's clear he hasn't changed the daredevil ways that put the brakes on their first love.
Injured NASCAR driver Josh Langtree isn't up for being anyone's sweetheart these days either. He's just looking for a place to lick his wounds … until a misunderstanding lands him doing community service in Sesty's auction. Soon he finds himself standing in front of hundreds of screaming women—wearing a tux and a smile. And then there's Sesty—looking as tempting as ever.
He says he's changed, and the sparks between them are flying fast and furious, but can Sesty trust Josh to take the wheel and drive her into the future she never dreamed possible?

     Valentine’s Day calls to every young unmarried woman’s heart, I don’t care what they tell you.  Even if they have been dumped like Sesty Snow was by Chad the Cad.  Even with all that she proved my case because all she could think about was her first everything.  Her first kiss, first love, and first sexual love making experience.  No one ever forgets the first one especially if it is great!  And Josh Langtree was the best.  Or so Sesty thought.
     Of course she would never admit that to anyone but especially him if ever asked.  Now she only had two other partners to compare him to but hands down he had them beat.  It was like he was fully engaged just like his driving.  She just couldn’t live with the constant fear of him crashing and him not coming home to her let alone if they ever had a family.
     Josh on the other hand was in it back then for the whole race so to speak.  He was madly and truly in love with Sesty and was crushed when she dumped him.  Now he has been dumped again and like Sesty it doesn’t seem to bother him either.
     The gleam in both of their eyes tells the whole story of the fact that the love never died but the fear is putting up block walls to keep each of their hearts safe.  But is Sesty finally ready to be fearless and not worry what her parents think?  Reaching out to Josh and that brass ring for happiness?
     Is Josh ready to be fearless in a different way by stepping away from the race track and finding out what real life has to offer?  Become a more rounded person allowing and opening his heart and making room for Sesty in there to see if they can love again without hurting each other? 
     He made it okay in the past to take risk and be different, to enjoy the ride and be happy doing.  She showed him that buckling down and setting his mind to something he could achieve it, that his learning disability of dyslexia didn’t have to hold him back.  It just didn’t make the dream of college that most teens had his dream.  Yet, it didn’t mean he wasn’t smart far from it he was that and sexy too.
     And he was back in Twilight to recuperate after his wreck.  But got in a little trouble and is assigned 40 hours community service to be serve with Sesty, working on the bachelor auction.  So let the fun begin.
     This is just one of those stories of when love is right it’s right.  It may happen to soon but there is nothing that says you can’t set it free and if it’s meant to be it won’t ignite again with an even brighter flame than before.  Especially, when it started out as a first love as it did for Josh and Sesty.  Life’s experiences gave them the tools they needed to see what a gift their love was and how to honor it.  Sweet, sweet story.  I gave it 5 stars.  Provided by the author for and honest review.  Follow us on:
