Release Blitz! Hail No By Lani Lynn Vale

Evander Lennox doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to do. At least, that is, until he’s sent to prison. The four years he’s incarcerated, he’s had no choice but to do the things that he’s asked to do, when he’s asked to do them. And now, if he doesn’t, it will mean a one-way ticket straight back to hell.

Once he’s free, it takes him twenty-four hours to get his old job back, his dog at home where he belongs, and an understanding that people aren’t as forgiving as he once thought them to be. He’s just about given up hope of ever integrating back into society when a woman slams into his heart, literally and figuratively.

 *** Kennedy Swallow just wants to belong somewhere. When she was younger, her parents divorced, and chose to separate her from her twin. Fast forward fifteen years, and she’s finally getting to meet the family she’s always wanted to be a part of. To make that happen, she uproots her life and moves to the tiny town of Hostel, Texas—giving her almost everything she’s ever wanted. Just when she thinks she’s making progress in winning her family over, she finds out that her twin is ill, and the only reason her family tolerates her is due to the convenience of having a free caretaker whenever they might be in need of one.After a few eye-opening experiences, she quickly realizes that she’s being used. Vowing to herself that she’ll make the best of the situation, she begins to steel her heart. What she doesn’t prepare for is a man named Evander who sees that barrier as a challenge.

*** It takes Evander all of ten seconds while watching the woman on the floor, bleeding from her jaw, to realize that maybe life isn’t as bad as it could be. This woman with her thrill for life, a crazy obsession with chickens, and a desire to be wanted, changes everything he thinks he knows.But it doesn’t take long for him to realize that just by being around her, the people of the town have judged her guilty by association. Her business suffers, and soon after, she realizes what it will mean to have him by her side—the loss of everything she’s worked so hard for. Kennedy knows that Evander is worth it. Evander, however, decides that he’s not letting another person get hurt because he was stupid enough to care.
Hail No is the first book in the Hail Raisers series and I really liked it a lot.  It has that Lani Lynn Vale touch but with the added suspense that was more prevalent in this one.  It was a bit rougher around the edges and I loved it.  While I always love her MC romances I am loving that we are getting different series but that still feel like you are coming back home when old friends are mentioned.  It must be said it is NOT an MC romance, but what it is, is another amazing start to a new series.  From the very first few sentences I was hooked and didn’t want to put it down at all.

Evander had this intensity, this edge to him that only added to his supposed dangerous persona.  But what’s hard on the outside is sometimes the softest on the inside even if that softness only shows to certain people.  He was wronged, yet his family, the one he chose not the one he was born into welcomed him home with open arms after being released from prison.  While some of the town hates him and talks about him behind his back, the one person who should stay away from doesn’t and sees what everyone else doesn’t, that person is Kennedy.

Kennedy’s life has been hell to put it mildly.  The amount of loss she has felt was enormous, the way people treat her is inexcusable and she needs a ray of light in her life when it appears dark all around her.  Not that I would describe Evander as a light but he was there for her, he helped her, he shielded her, he made her feel like with him at her side she could take on the world.  I loved the connection these two shared.

I can’t wait for the next book, hail (see what I did there ha) I can’t wait for the entire series.  Lani Lynn Vale has given this book whore another new series to anticipate and enjoy!
