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.
What the Hail (Hail Raisers, #4) by Lani Lynn Vale

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.
Lark isn't her real name. It's safer that way. She's running from her past and she's hoping that it doesn't catch up with her. That he doesn't find her. Her ex is someone she hopes to never see again. But she's smart enough to know that's an unrealistic hope. In the back of her mind, she's aware that he has the resources to find her, and he will, eventually. So, she stays alert, always cautious and observant. Ready to run.
Baylor is used to upsetting people. None of them are ever happy when he repossess their cars. But this one, she gets to him with her tears. He wants to turn her frown upside down. He feels protective towards her and doesn't understand why. However; it always seems to be him on the receiving end of the trouble when the two of them run into each other.
Lani Lynn Vale always makes me laugh. If it's not the funny chapter headings, it's the internal dialogue or witty banter between characters. But at the same time, she always tackles serious issues and does a good job telling a story that will grab you in the gut and make you feel something. As the series progresses, she shares glimpses of the other character's lives. Just enough to tease her readers and get them intrigued about what she has in store for them next. I'm so damn excited to get my hands on The Hail You Say, that the waiting is going to be
hail. The line forms here...
