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

In - flipping - credible!!

This was my first foray into Lani Lynn Vale’s world. What The Hail was the first book I picked up of hers to read. And amid the chuckling, giggling, nail biting, horror, sympathy, envious lust, and all-consuming joy at the love found between the characters, I couldn’t help but think ‘What the heck took me so long to read from this author???’

Well, I’ll be correcting this lapse tout suite. Because if her other books are anything like the story I just got of Baylor and

HAIL YES! I found MY Hail man!!! Baylor Hail... Swoon...

These Hail brothers sure are something else, and even though each of them is his particular brand of danger, they still manage to be as different amongst themselves, but still the same wild and tormented men at their core.

Her grin was rather manic. “Six boys and two girls, darlin’.” She tucked the flask back into her purse. “I nearly died going through puberty with them. If

After hating book 2 and being turned off by book 3, I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this book. It’s safe, no cheating, and OM drama is due to the abusive ex-hubby. Baylor (H) was such a good guy, I just would have preferred that he pursued Lark (h) harder from the start.

Goodness! Full of passion, emotions and laughter What the Hail is truly the best book Lani Lynn Vale has released to date! Baylor and Lark are two broken souls who fit together perfectly to make one beautiful, sexy, funny and emotional whole. This is truly the best book Lani has written yet.

Ms. Vale has definitely hit her stride with super hot sex scenes, good golly Ms. Molly was the flirting and sex HOT! The emotions and healing that went on throughout this book touched my heart, everything f

I’ve yet to read anything by Lani Lynn Vale that I haven’t loved. It’s a rare thing when there isn’t at least one book that I don’t like in an author’s catalogue—especially one with as many novels as Vale has written—but that’s where I am with Lani’s work. Vale has grown tremendously as an author since her first release. She’s taken some risks, she’s stepped out of her comfort zone, and all of that experimentation has paid off in her last few series where she’s gone back to her romant

My favorite in the series so far!

Loved the chemistry between Lark & Baylor. Every scene they shared felt so natural & so right. Their conversation & sex scenes were smokin'!

Lark... What a horrible past this woman was running from. The uncaring parents, the crazy-a** ex-husband, the physically & emotionally distress... my heart went out to her on more than one occasion. Loved how strong, determined & sweet she was.

Baylor... I really liked this guy. Loved how protective he was

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

Another scrumptious read by Lani Lynn!.

Baylor and Larks story is one that hits you right in the feels.

What I love about these books is that not only do you get a fantasic story with a well built plot filled to the brim with emotion that sucks you in and makes you feel/connect to. You also get a great bunch of secondary characters and little insights of what's to come in the future for them. She somehow manages to find that perfect balance of angst, suspense.. humour and love.

I freaking loved this book!

Ok, so the beginning didn’t gel with me, but that was just me. As much as I love the books by this author, I just couldn’t get into the freebirds series…and this book ties directly back into that series (not in a non-standalone way though)…and I just felt myself wandering when I was reading. But once Lark and Baylor met, I was hooked. I loved seeing Lark come to trust him. I loved seeing Baylor want nothing more than to be with her. I loved seeing Baylor introduce Lark

Be prepared to get dragged into this world in Hostel, TX that we've all grown to love. Here we find Baylor, one of the Hail brothers and Lark a hard working gal that can't seem to get ahead for falling behind.

We get to hear how Harold the only banker in town and President of the H.O.A is crazy as ever. We meet Pongo and find out the crazy things Lark won't do to for someone she cares about. We get more of a glimpse at the broken Dante.

WTH? = What the Hail

Another amazing addition to the Hail Raisers series. Each book has me convinced that it's my favorite in the series, until the next book is released. I just can't get enough of the amazing Hail brothers. They are a close-knit bunch who love to give each other hell, but at the same time would give their lives to protect each other. As I read each book, I'm drawn deeper into their lives, and then I don't want to leave when I turn the last page.

This is the fourth book in the Hail Raisers series and although each book can be read as a standalone, I would advise reading the other books in the series first. This is my first read of this author and therefore not having read any of the books in the series I did get a bit lost and it took me a while to ‘get’ the Hail Raisers world.

Lark is on the run from her ex, always trying to be one step ahead of him. She moves to a new town hoping she has left her troubles behind her only to find herself

What The Hail had me asking what the hell was Ms. Vale doing to my emotions and to my heart! I think for me this was the most emotional one of the series so far. Honestly if you haven’t read any of the books in this series or if I am to get real any of Lani Lynn Vale’s books what are you waiting for? I only have a small list of will read authors no matter what they write and Ms. Vale is one of the ones on the top of t
First, let me tell you... that Lani Lynn Vale is an expert tease when it comes to mysterious or for-the-time-being reclusive characters. Yes, I'm speaking about Rafe and Dante. And yeas, I'm frustrated as hell!

Lark's background is one that none of us would ever want to endure but this brave woman has managed to break away from her past with the assistance of some of our past favourites. When Baylor and Lark lay eyes on each other something sparks between them and it is something that neither of them will be able to avoid.

I love this series! I loved this book! It's been a hot minutes since I've read an LLV book. Having devoured so many back to back, I needed a change of scenery for a bit. I recently read a couple serious (but still amazing) books and was looking for something a little lighter. I realized that Reed's book had just come out, reminding me I hadn't yet read Baylor's book, so I jumped right on that!

I absolutely loved how regardless that Lark can't seem to catch a break she never gives up, she just digs in and continues to try hard.

Lark who is broken beyond repair as far as she believes, but after meeting some locals in her new town she meets a very sexy man who is bad yet very good for her.
