He’s wanted her since he repossessed her car and made her cry.
Baylor Hail knew two things. One, he hated crying females. Two, it was even worse when he was the one to make that female cry.
He never meant to do anything but his job, but when one thing leads to another, suddenly all he can think about is the broken woman whose car he towed.
She’s wanted him since he patted her back and told her it was okay to cry even though she knew he was lying.
Nothing ever goes right for Lark.
Not when she got married. Not when she tried to leave her abusive husband, and not when she arrived in a new town with a fresh, clean slate.
That clean slate came courtesy of a secret organization that specializes in helping abused women find a way out. They set her up with a whole new life. It just turns out that it happened to be right smack dab in the middle of another woman’s old one.
That woman also happens to be down on her luck, something that Lark learns the hard way when on her first day there, her car is towed by a handsome stranger.
It’s been two years since she’s felt any kind of sexual attraction toward a man, and she reacts badly. We’re talking full-on, hysterical breakdown as he loads her car onto his tow truck while looking at her like she’s lost it.
Maybe being crazy isn’t all that bad.
The next thing she knows, she’s spending time with the sexy stranger and life couldn’t be better—even though she still doesn’t have a car.
She thinks she’s in the clear, that she’s got it all figured out… well, that is until her ex-husband finds her again.
Now the ball is in her sexy stranger’s court as he decides whether or not her kind of crazy is worth getting killed over.
Turns out, for Baylor Hail, maybe it is.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If there's one thing that i absolutely love about Lani Lynn Vale, it's how totally unexpected her books are. What The Hail had me laughing so much that i had tears rolling down my face (and my 8 year old thinking i was crying). I mean, it's not every day that you'll come face to face with devil jean shorts and its killer button from hell that will require intense medical treatments... to the balls! Oh yes, karma really had it in for Lark, but this woman refuses to go down without a fight and Baylor unwilling to lose something as precious as the woman who humbles him with her outlook on life.
The best part of this book?! Finally realizing why the Hail family history sounded so familiar - i had heard it through Tobias' sorty in the Dixie Warden Rejects series *sigh*. That MC family isn't completely gone - i can 'see' them again through this series and i'm loving every single moment!
