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.
This is the third book in the Hail Raisers series and while I liked this one - I didn't absolutely love it. While all of LLV have sex and language, this book had A LOT of both of those things. It had a good storyline, but I did have a problem with the believability of a Psychologist having a fling with her patient - even if she's known that patient almost her whole life and had a crush on him. I know it's a book and it's fiction, but I did ding another author for this and it wouldn't be right to not do it here. It's an unethical line that shouldn't be crossed and with that being said, Hennessy did pass his case on to her friend. There's a bunch of stuff going on in this book that's leading up to the books that are coming out in the next couple months and I really enjoyed finding out about the insights into those characters. Again, while I believe this wasn't a five-star for me, it's going to be for a bunch of others and I might actually go back and read it again to see if I was just in a mood. I read it while I was in the Hell Hotel at a book signing and wasn't in the greatest of moods. Will this keep me from reading the others coming up? Absolutely not!!
I was given an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own and do not reflect anyone else's.
