Candy Ray Sunshine--Yes, that is my real name, thank you very much, Mom and Dad--knew two things.
One, she was going to work her butt off and open her very own coffee shop, even if she had to die doing it.
Two, Banks Valentine was the world’s worst ex-boyfriend in the history of ex-boyfriends. Even if they were only boyfriend and girlfriend for one evening. She wouldn’t sn

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 in

Yes, unfortunately I didn't like that at all. Firstly due to the recurrent fact of the majority of novels today, i.e the heroine with a tragic past with a frustrated sex life or practically nonexistent while the hero also with a tragic past who claims to have always loved the heroine, but for sure it did not prevent him from being with several other women. Needless to say this cliché is more than outdated (but yet, OUTDATED). Another thing that bothered me was the thought that she (h) felt the n ...more

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 didn’t ever have it together when it came to Banks Valentine.

Chute Yeah is a fun yet emotional romance. Old crushes and old hurts have made Candy and Banks relationship as adults strained, even though their relationship is strained it doesn’t hide the chemistry they have. Banks wants Candy, always has and he doesn’t understand how badly he hurt her when they were teenagers or how that incident impacted her life. Banks is on a mission to wear Candy down but Candy isn’t sure she can forgive and forget. Banks starts turning on that cowboy charm and his stubb ...more

I knew going in that I was going to love Banks and Candy's story. First because Lani Lynn Vale wrote it. Secondly because this series has been great. But mainly because the tension between them was palpable in Crazy Heifer, I just knew it was going to be amazing when it exploded.

What I didn't know was how much my heart was going to break for Candy. I thought the drama between her and Banks was normal dickhead, egotistical, teenager boy behaviour from when they were in high school carried over i

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 sur

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 n

Gosh...maybe it’s this virus, maybe it’s me...I don’t know but this didn’t work for me. I was bored, it took me 4 days to read this and this has been happening a lot lately with this authors books. I love her and her writing in the past has been flawless but I think she’s trying to hard and is losing her mojo.
I do love the Valentine brothers but this was just too easy for me. I wish I had had some conflict, some angst, ya know??

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

I’ve read all of Lani Lynn Vale’s books, and I’ve been along for the entire ride as she’s 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 I’ve waited patiently for Vale to get around to telling these boys’ tales. It’s been worth the wait. Lani could have gone in a lot of different directions with the Valentine Boys, but she’s opted to make their stories, thus far, lighter and happi

I knew Banks's story was going to be awesome. And it so was.
Banks and Candy together was so sweet. I loved that it's almost like they decided it was enough to be in this love/hate thing going and just gave in to their feelings for each other😍

My heart just Broke for Candy and what she went through and so it did for Banks. Evetyime I read about what their family went through in each book it just breaks me😔
But I think both of them so broken they just knew how to fix each other💖

I wasn't sure I was going to like this one going into it. We got a bit with Candy in the last book and it seemed like she and Banks were nemesis, going back a long time. How then are we supposed to root for them as a couple???? But things were written so I could get on board hoping for them to end up happy. Sure it took a weird turn, it is a Vale book after all. I especially loved how loopy Candy got on meds, made for some fun reading!! ...more

I wasn’t sure what Chute Yeah had in store for me as the first part of this book had the tears streaming down my face. However as the tears from the pain and heartache dried, new tears formed, but don’t worry these were ones resulting from the laughter that at times I couldn’t control. Banks and Candy stole my heart and had me captivated by their journey from pain to happiness. Their story was emotional, heartfelt, witty and overflowing with passion.

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

A few parts of Chute Yeah felt flat for me. I liked the characters but it seemed to me we were shown just a surface of their real lives, that the author could have dived much deeper into their issues and personalities, drawn so many more emotions out of them.

Book 3 in Valentine Boys by Lani Lynn Vale
I love that all theses book have the main characters hating each other.
Banks is a Valentine boy that is a bull rider and compete when isn’t working on the family farm. Candy Ray Sunshine is the weird goth girl from high school that asks Banks out to school prom and when she gets there is totally humiliated in front of everyone. That night was just being humiliating but horrific and Candy never told anyone.

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.

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 town

I am beyond digging The Valentine Boys series and the previous book, Crazy Heifer, sets this one up perfectly giving readers a preview that things are definitely difficult between Candy and Banks. We don't know what the issue is, but we find out fairly soon in Chute Yeah, and the reason definitely was like a shot through the heart. This is a second chance for these two and it is not only a heartwarming story, but it has the humor that typically like to find in Lani's stories.

Chute Yeah (The Valentine Brothers #3) by Lani Lynn Vale is a hilarious and emotional rollercoaster romance read.
I have been so waiting for this story because it's Candy Ray Sunshine and Banks Valentine's story!! They have history together that goes back to high school and back then, some of it wasn't good at all.
Without giving the story away, just know that Candy and Banks story is heartbreaking, emotional, touching, funny, heartwarming, steamy, intense and amazing. I totally didn't expect to

Candy & Banks have a bit of a rough start. The worst day of their lives is the same day but for different reasons. And Banks, unfortunately, has a hand in why Candy's day was the worst. So although the book opens w/ quite a bit of humor, I was still pretty sad for all they had to go through!

Their story really takes off once Banks has to return her donkey, tho... They begin a friendship that turns into a fake relationship neither of them wants to be fake, which pretty quickly turns real. We get l

Man I love everything Lani writes! But boy do I love her Valentine cowboys! She definitely didn’t disappoint with Banks.

I have loved Banks in the previous two books. There was just something about him, be it his quiet don’t mess with me attitude, that just made me love him and knew that there was more too him. He definitely showed that in this book especially with Candy.

Candy per usual broke my heart in Part I. Oh man did she kill me with what happened to her. But I think Banks got to me too onc
