These Valentine boys really know their way into a woman's heart and Banks certainly wormed himself into mine!

Banks and Candy knew each other in high school. He was the most popular guy in school while she was the token goth girl that never fit in. They also had huge crushes on each other that really didn't get a chance to go anywhere because in one night, not only did Banks torpedo her self worth, she suffered a horror that no one should ever have to endure. One night turned Candy's crush into

LLV has been really packing in the emotions in her most recent books and it is no different in  Chute Yeah . She is going for broke and is not holding back. Candy and Banks story is here and my goodness, the tears were flowing. My.Poor.Heart.

Whether you're an older or newer fan to this series, you have the history of the Valentine's and it's tragic and absolutely heartbreaking. Banks survived one of the worst days of his life and you have to wonder how someone can come back after that. When it

These boys and their girls are romance royalty

I loved this series from the first pages so it was little wonder I was on high alert for Banks and Candys story. Their relationship was complicated but I had no idea at all what was hidden by well-earned animosity. If I hadnt already had a soft-spot for Banks, he may not have been able to dig out from under

When we are kids, we dont always make the right decisions but these ones were doozies. With heart-wrenching complications. Banks, his entire

Banks and Candy... what a story! 

I was in tears by chapter 3.

I was really mad at Lani. Like really mad. But it was worth it. 

Banks and Candy's story begins in high school.

Banks makes a decision that comes with consequences. Consequences he doesn't know about until he is an adult. But Banks also goes who his own terrible ordeal that same night. 

My worst night had also been his work night, and his worst night ever trumped mine a thousand-fold

Candy never imagined she would go though what she went

Mixed feelings about this. I liked a lot of it... but there were some thing that just didn't gel for me. See, the thing is... it was his fault, what happened. I mean, not directly... but if he hadn't said 'yes', she wouldn't have been there in the first place. I kind of wish that that hadn't been the kick-start for the story. It made it overly sensationalised in a way. This was a serious thing that had happened to her... an event that would shape most people's entire future's... and a lot of the ...more

5 Star Review Chute Yeah (The Valentine Brothers #3) by Lani Lynn Vale
This is Candy Ray Sunshine and Banks Valentines story which was emotional.
Candy and Banks have history, starting in high school and not all of it is good.

This was an emotional roller coaster of a read and I admit, tears were shed. Can Candy and Banks make peace with the past, forgive and move forward? Or will they allow the past to destroy their chance at happiness?

I loved how Candy gave as good as she got, not prepared to

Banks is often times just full of questions, "he opened both eyes. If thats a possibility, why the eff do women use tampons at all? he asked. That, I had no idea. Do you use them? he asked." I liked this book, I loved Banks.

These Valentine Brothers have me won over big time. Banks is the flirty, bronco riding hunk with the tight wranglers and secret heart of gold. Candy...she was sort of the freak in high school but I didnt really understand why. Shes gorgeous, down to earth, sweet...but she was bullied. I dont quite get it but I was happy when good things started happening for her. Loved the flirty way these two started falling for each other.

Candy Ray and Banks!!!! I've been excited for Chute Yeah since the previous book when we discovered that Candy Ray HATES Banks for something he did to her in high school. I love a good second chance!

So both of them crushed on the other, but one night brings all that to a grinding halt for Candy. But, they can't ignore each other any longer since they are neighbors, and Banks starts pushing Candy to tell him what he did! This gives us a peek into Candy that will tug at your emotions for sure.

Hot Damn These Valentine Boys, or should I say Banks and Candy, sure put me through the wringer! Every single possible emotion, Chute Yeah guaranteed ALL of them!

I did not expect this book to put me to tears and break my heart for Candy immediately in the first few chapters! It really wrecked me

God, I really needed to get it together.
But, the problem was, I didnt ever have it together when it came to Banks Valentine.

Lord does Lani know how to test our limits when it comes to her adding shocking revelations into her stories.

I really DID NOT expect their story this way. Like not one bit.

Banks and Candy have known eachother since high school and it's safe to say their relationship was not a friendly one. Both had secret attractions to the one another but Banks being the cook kid on the block and Candy being different made it so that they wouldn't act on it. If anything he was a little dick head to her. One

One night, Two devastating tragedies.

This book was absolutely devastating in the before, I was sort of expecting it to head down the same "past" explanation as Crazy Heifer and Herd That. But unlike the other Valentine brothers, Banks Valentine wasn't the only one that suffered that night.

Candy Rae Sunshine also suffered her own traumatic event. My heart bleed for that girl.

When I saw this was in two parts, I wondered what it's purpose was. I'm actually really glad that with Banks LLV

For as long as I have read Lani Lynn Vale she has never failed to make me laugh, think, cringe, squirm, etc. And with Chute Yeah she does it all again. As this is book 3 in the Valentine Boys series, and as I have been hooked since book one, I was ready to sit and enjoy all sorts of fun. She did not let me down.

If you have been keeping up with the Kilgore stories by Lani Lynn you know the last name Valentine. If you have not been keeping up with the story she does gives you a little backstory.

Ive read all of Lani Lynn Vales books, and Ive been along for the entire ride as shes built this fictional world in East Texas. The tragic story of the Valentine family is one that stuck with me through many other characters stories, and Ive waited patiently for Vale to get around to telling these boys tales. Its been worth the wait. Lani could have gone in a lot of different directions with the Valentine Boys, but shes opted to make their stories, thus far, lighter and happier by

Chute Yeah tells the story of Candy Ray Sunshine and Banks Valentine. And what a terrific story it is too. It is written in two parts with the first part happening fifteen years prior to today.

From the first part I was chuckling, that senior prank was a good one but the description of the cleanup even funnier! The hilarity continues in part two but one of the funniest was the description of what Wranglers do for a man. And the reaction Candy had to painkillers, hilarious. 😆 There are some

This is book 3 in a series and its the only book I had read but as soon as I started it I realized I really needed to read the first two books. Can it stand alone? Yes, probably but I felt I had missed a lot by not reading the other stories and so I quit midway and started with Book 2, which is where we meet Candy.

I have loved these Valentine brothers since the first book of this series and every book so far has made me love them all even more. This story followed the story of Banks Valentine and Candy. I really loved their story together and the backstory that they had. One thing in this series that I absolutely love is the relationship that the family have with each other and the way that the brothers all look out for each other.

The third of the Valentine brothers' stories belongs to Banks. Back in high school, before "that night" happened, Banks had been popular and quite the hottie. Then there had been Candy Ray Sunshine. Candy was also known as "goth girl" and was teased relentlessly, but after getting a yes from Banks when she summoned up the courage to ask him to a dance, the night in question changed both their lives forever... for the worse. Jump to present day and both are back in

Lani Lynn Vale brings fans of the Valentine Boys series a fabulous enemies to lovers romance with Chute Yeah!

Candy Ray Sunshine and Banks Valentine. Candy Ray wasnt popular in highschool and preferred to stay in the background. Banks was part of the in crowd. Both had a secret crush on the other, but neither let it show. And, on a night that should have been a fun and amazing time, they both experienced the worst night of their lives that left them forever changed.

Banks and Candy were in different social cliques in high school. He was popular and she was the goth girl. When Candy takes initiative and asks Banks to the senior prom, it winds up being a night that would haunt her for a while. Banks is unsure what really happened, but knows that Candy was not in a good place when she went home that night. He finds out later, when his own unspeakable event happens, that she was in even worse shape than he thought.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Candy Ray Sunshine and Banks Valentine were anything but friends in high school. One night that ended in a way no one would have expected and they are both left with the scars. Years later and they are living in the same town again and Candy is hating Banks as much as always. Yet, this is always a thin line between love and hate.

Well, heres another top of the charts for Lani Lynn Vale. I have been waiting for Banks story since The Valentine Boys series began. Theres just something about a big-headed, ex-jock and military man who grew up on a farm. Those tight jeans and a wide smile will do a girl well, anytime. Throw in the fact that he is a closet hopeless romantic. My heart was just swooning when we find out the little things that he did for Candy back in the day. All this time they thought there was a mutual hatred ...more

Chute Yeah follows Banks Valentine and Candy Ray Sunshine. The story is told in 2 separate parts, the first occurring 15 years ago and the second occurring in present day.

Candy was the nerdy girl in school and Banks was the popular kid, so when Banks accepts Candy's request to go to prom together you can imagine her surprise. What is meant to be her dream date ends up being unforgettable in a whole different way. What happens to both of them on that night is something that will change them
