One look at the sixteen-year-old, prim and proper town goody-two-shoes, Hennessy Hanes, and Tate Casey knows he’s in trouble. He knows he should stay away from the preacher’s daughter, but there’s something about her he’s drawn to, and he can’t resist the pull.
The more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that something isn’t right. He may not be able put his finger on what it is, but he’s determined to find out what’s going on with the girl with the haunted eyes. Tate didn’t anticipate that someone else would be just as determined to keep Hennessy’s nightmare a secret, and he never realizes just how far that person is willing go to keep those skeletons in the closet until it’s too late. With the very real threat of jail time hanging over his head, Tate leaves without a backwards glance at the town or the girl. The problem is that out-of-sight doesn’t necessarily mean out of mind, and it’s Tate who’s now haunted by his decision and memories of Hennessy. ***Hennessy Hanes knows better than anyone that not everything is always as it appears to be. After years of being on the receiving end of her squeaky-clean preacher father’s abuse, she seizes an opportunity to leave it all behind and runs. Her only regret is that in walking away she loses any chance with the one person who tried to save her. *** Fast forward ten years, and they’re both back where they started. Tate was never a good boy, and it turns out that the man he’s now grown into isn’t all that much better. Anger is a living, breathing part of him, and there’s a court order forcing him to seek help from the one person he’s never forgotten. Hennessy never thought she’d see Tate Casey again, and certainly not on her couch. But now it’s her turn to save him, and there are rules she must follow as his psychologist, not to mention a court order instructing her to help him manage his anger. If she doesn’t follow those rules, he’ll end up back in jail. Tate Casey has never been a man who followed the rules, and Hennessy is no longer the straight-laced, timid preacher’s daughter she once was. His hands may be tied, so it looks like for the first time in Hennessy’s life, she’ll be the one breaking the rules for the chance to finally get what she’s always wanted. Him.
What is better than a story about the town’s bad boy and the preacher’s daughter? How about one that is filled with some emotional moments, suspense, a bit of rebellion on the good girl’s part and one that is also sexy, funny and another amazing addition to the Hail Raisers series. Burn In Hail is all of the things I mentioned and so much more.
This book at times wasn’t easy to ready because of the things Hennessey has gone through, things that had me getting so upset that I wanted to jump inside my book and whoop some serious ass. She is not weak let me get that out first, what Hennessey is, is a survivor and someone becoming who they were always meant to be. I love how slowly the more she was around Tate the more she well let’s just say blossomed, and seeing that happen was not only emotional at times but also beautiful.
Tate is the bad boy, the one recently released from prison and once you find out everything well let’s just say I know I fell in love with him even more. He is at times rough around the edges, but he is also sexy as hell, sweet and exactly whom Hennessey needed in her life to bring out all that was buried deep. There is something about the bad boy falling for the most innocent of good girls that makes them so much sexier in my opinion. Also it must be said, Tate’s grandma she was amazing!
Burn In Hail will make you burn up alright, burn up with wanting one of these Hail Raisers as one of your own, and if Tate wasn’t already Hennessey’s I would want him as mine. Lani Lynn Vale has another check in the win column with Burn In Hail, I think this is one that needs to be on the top of TBR lists!
