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.
I absolutely loved Baylor and Lark!! This might be my favorite Hail Raisers book so far.
Tomorrow, I’d tell him that this wouldn’t work out. Tomorrow, I’d be the adult I needed to be. But today? Today I was going to do what I wanted to do. And Baylor was the thing I wanted to do.
Baylor and Lark have both had rough lives.
Baylor had a terrbile accident years ago and is still recovering from the injuries he received.
Lark is one of the “birds”. She is on the run from her past and is hoping to start a new life in a new city.
“I didn’t do small talk. I wasn’t a small talk kind of girl. I was more of a grunt and point kind of person. This new girl I was being forced to be wasn’t good for me. I hated people.”
When they first meet it wasn’t under the best circumstances. Then they had a series of run-ins that were both funny and terrible….you will understand once you read the book.
As the book goes on, you uncover more about each character and you learn why they are the way they are.
Like most Lani books, everything is not just going to go smooth.
When it comes down to the wire, will they both survive? Will they be able to move past their pasts or will it tear them part?
“Something is broken inside of me,” I blurted. His eyes studied me for long moments before he let me go. “Everyone’s broken, Lark,” he said. “You just have to find a way to fix yourself. Tape sometimes works.”
This book made my laugh, cry, and cry some more. This book so much heart in it. You can tell that Lani really put herself into this book.
