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 patt

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

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

Okay I don't know where to start! Okay I'll start with Lark and Baylor! These two deserved to have their HEA after ALL that they went through in life! Lady Luck owed them and she gave right back by bringing these two together! I've never laughed so hard with all the mishaps Baylor had with his impressive "package"! I loved these two together! I also LOVED seeing all the Hails! And Pongo! And now on to the other amazing parts in their story...2 major things we see: Dante and Mary ( OH MY HEART) a ...more

This book was both exactly what I was expecting and yet it didn't really play out how I was expecting at all.

I was expecting Lark to be meek and mild and probably a little broken. So I was really happy to discover she was such a fighter. She had gone through hell and yeah, she was still a little haunted by everything she had gone through but she was determined to live her life and enjoy it.

Baylor was everything that I expected. He was so protective of Lark and so gentle with her. The whole story

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.

I love these Repo fellas!! Each story has been unique. Baylor is the strong beefy man you don’t want to get close to, but who you secretly want to hug.

I wasn’t really sure where this story was going at first but I loved that he and Lark became friends than more, I am not sure this would have worked for me otherwise.

Oh but it gets spicy, the action which I figured was coming but I didn’t expect how it went down! I loved it a freaking SWORD! Nuts.

The ending lmao I love on to the next.

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

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 of Lark, how he care

Have I said lately how much I love this author's books... I think I am obsessed with her books.

This one, I loved loved loved. This series is awesome, all I can say is if you haven't read it you are seriously missing out.
A bit of everything, drama, sex, romance, suspense, and absolutely freakingly hilarious at times.

If you haven't read a book by this author you need to right away I suggest that you start with the Freebirds series first because alot of those amazing characters are mentioned throughout every LLV series .

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.

What The Hail is everything I love from Lani Lynn Vale multiplied by a thousand! Hands down this is my favorite (so far lol!) in The Hail Raisers series. I was literally, and loudly, cracking up at times while reading this. What The Hail has the perfect amount of fun, humor, swoon worthy romance, and heat. I could not get enough of Baylor and Lark! From the second I started reading this I couldn’t stop. Lani’s writing is beyond addictive and her characters are impossible to not love. Trust me wh ...more

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.

The best part though is the crazy shenanigans that seem to

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.

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!
Second, I freaking love Hail brothers.
Third, I got so excited about the second, I forgot the third.
Fourth, I don't know why I'm still doing this.
Fifth, I'm hoping I get my motor—the stupid brain of mine—running again by continuing this silliness.

I received a copy of this book to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

What the Hail is the fourth book in Lani Lynn Vale's Hail Raisers Series. It can be read as a standalone. If you have not met the Hail brother's yet you are missing out and in for a treat.

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

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!

While there is a slight seriousness to this story, what with Lark's ex on the loose, there was still a l

Wow!!! This might be my favorite book of this series. Baylor is a sweet, cocky man who meets Lark under unfortunate circumstances. 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. This book is funny & Lark is by far the quirkiest introvert, but her character was so great to read. I loved her. She had such a hard life before she moved & ur heart went out to her, but as soon as she let ...more

I liked Baylor and Lark. It was obvious from the other books that these two were going to end up together.

One of the craziest relationships in the bunch, with the button flying, almost broken appendages, people walking around with swords....

I will say that I was starting to feel some type of way with how things were going for Lark and she was one of the Freebirds, then when it was explained I was back on solid footing with the men of Free.

Lastly, I want more Rafe.

I don't know how she does it but every book gets better and better!

Lark, a victim of domestic violence, is starting again in a new town, with a new name and new everything. The threat of her ex, Sal, finding her is something she lives with daily. Baylor Hail is a loner much of the time and recognises a kindred soul in Lark.

The relationship that quickly builds is not easy to begin with but then as Lark let's down some walls it quickly turns into a combustible situation but more, it shows how muc
