He is handsome and strong.
He is rough around the edges and mean.
He is everything she's ever wanted.

Humor is always in this author's books! Especially the chapter sayings, some are so off the wall funny!! This is a 179 nook pages of heartache, humor, steamy loving, conflict, some heart warming moments, and addresses bulling. The secondary characters like Morgan & Johnson (oh, and can not forget Ezra's neice) were great additions to this story. Highly recommend any of her books!****

"Women my age are supposed to be look suave and sophisticated while walking in heels. Me? I manage to trip over thin air. -Raleigh's inner thoughts" Okay, so at the very first, I was totally into Raleigh. She has a lot of the same thoughts that I do and felt many of the same things, as well. Pining over her high school crush, but truly feeling like she can't catch him. Yep, that's me! "Who was I kidding? I'd never be anything more than a last resort." I don't know how many times I've felt that way; how many times I doubted myself. The story itself, though, was so cute. Ezra was the typical "stud" from your high school years: confident (almost cocky), popular, funny, good-looking, and ... well, you get it. But the thing that seemed a bit different about Ezra, was that he was totally into his family and made my heart melt with those he loved. He also didn't bring any discrimination or prejudice into his adulthood, and in his teaching position, he appreciates all students. These two together were adorable. Raleigh with her clutzy, lovable self, and Ezra as the coolest teacher in school made me smile at almost every turn. There were some moments that I thought maybe went to quickly and some questions I had about some of the characters, but the world LLV created was lovely and I can't wait to go back.

I've enjoyed the books by this author that I've read before, so looked forward to this one. And I was blown away by how much I loved this book! I wish I'd been able to get started before my spring break was over, because this is one that I would have stayed up all night just to finish in one sitting. Raleigh was a klutz, I mean the BIGGEST klutz. Think Bella Swan on steroids, no exposed to radioactive klutz rays. Raleigh managed to get nose bleeds, break arms, all of the things she did to herself! She was so bad the students were afraid her bad luck would carry over at sporting events so they'd ask her not to come unless she had to. And then there was Ezra. That popular guy you all remember from school. He wasn't a mean guy, but he was definitely oblivious to anything that wasn't directly in his line of sight until the beginning of our story when Raleigh tripped in Target and caused him to trip and drop what he was carrying, in this case, a monster size box of condoms. Only they fell and hit her right in the face. Raleigh had been in love with him since she first saw him when they were younger. But he'd really never noticed her before, even when she'd been right under his nose as a teenager, and now worked with him for five years at the high school. But this wasn't just a romantic comedy, although I laughed out loud all the way through, there were a lot of deep emotional aspects to the story as well. One of Raleigh's first experiences as a teacher, wow, it was scary. And then the student that she was there for, one that really needed just one person to be there, whether they knew it or not. There were also some great points, like when she was warned about public displays of affection at school when Ezra kissed her in the hallway, yet he didn't get warned! The bad guys in this were really bad people. Although with one of them being a high school student, the way Raleigh and even others handled it made great sense to me, with my experience as an educator myself. I loved everything about this book. Except one teensy, tiny thing. A joke, that I still don't get. One that was told at the beginning, and the brought up again in a speech by one of the students. Maybe you can help me? The joke was: What is a soldier's least favorite month? The answer the story gave was 'Allich. I don't know what that is!! The answer I would have thought or can find anywhere is that the month is March. Help me!

4.5 Stars of hilarity! Ezra & Raleigh were absolutely adorable and freaking hilarious at the same time! Poor Raleigh, who is a klutz and trouble (the painful kind) magnet, can’t seem to catch a break in the beginning of this book. I wasn’t really sure what I was going to think of her, but her character really pulled me in and had me cheering for her and Ezra through the story. Ezra, while delicious, really has blinders on when it comes to Raleigh. He doesn’t notice her and then BAM she was all that he could think about. And I think that there were times that she, or her situations, made him take a look at himself more. But he totally shows Raleigh that she is it for him and sometimes those times are hot as hades or totally sweet. I also really liked the secondary characters. Camryn, Raleigh’s best friend, is hilarious and the perfect person to get into hijinks with. And Morgan, I totally wanted to reach into the pages and give his character a big hug. This wasn’t a totally drama induce book, nor was danger paramount through the pages. This was a sweet story that did have a small bit of drama and danger. Overall, freaking awesome start to a new series! Loved the main characters and the secondary characters, Drama was kept low key and danger was as well. Hijinks ensues, sometimes in funny ways. Raleigh … OMG some of the situations that she found herself in were hilarious or cringe worthy. So, great book and I am totally looking forward to what comes next! Two thumbs up and happy reading.

Raleigh is clumsy personified, if you looked up clumsy in the dictionary you would find her picture there. You'd also find her in the unrequited love section. As she has loved Ezra McDuff forever, he doesn't even know that she exists.Ezra McDuff is the towns all star hero, high school coach and all round good guy. But he has never noticed Raleigh, until she caused chaos in Target, then suddenly she is everywhere and he can't get enough.OMG will Lani ever write a book I don't like and don't want to swallow down whole in one go. No I think not. I love this book, I love Lani and I love the fact we have a new series to devour. Lani you are a writing machine. I love you

The blurb is such that I wasn't sure what I was going to get so when it landed on my e-reader I opened it up just to see.  And didn't put it down until I was done!  I loved goofy, sweet, fun Raleigh.  From the very first page (and the subsequent awkward encounter with Ezra) I wanted to be bestest, life-long friends with her.  Klutzy, funny, and awkward, Raleigh will win your heart and you'll be cheering when she finally gets her guy.   I will saw there were a few times that I wanted to smack Ezra on the head.  He's either totally clueless or a bit of an *ss because he let another women get a little too handsy with him.  More than once after starting a relationship with Raleigh.  I get that maybe he didn't realize the signals that Raleigh might be picking up but after the first time it made her huffy I would have thought that he'd get a clue.  Outside of that, though, I found him to be a pretty good guy.  He takes care of the guys on his team and his family.  And wants he sees Raleigh he's ready to take on anything she needs him to.   While this is a more light-hearted book overall, it isn't afraid to tackle some harsher topics when it needs to.  This is only the second book by Vale that I've read, but it's not going to be my last.  (Lord Have Mercy, the next book in this series, is out soon and I'm already trying to figure out how to get my hands on it!) **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**

I admire and appreciate the fact that you give us a book a month. Normally I read each one the day it becomes available and then fret because I have to wait weeks for the next book friends from you to arrive. Raleigh and Morgan brought back vivid memories of being bullied and invisible in high school. Wished I could have given each of them a hug and been able to share more time with. Thanks for another unforgettable book. Both the smiles and giggles as well as the tears will long be remembered.

This book was hilarious! My kid kept looking at me asking what was so funny as I would laugh out loud while reading some of the paragraphs. I am so looking forward to this new series that she started!

I’m an avid reader of Lani Lynn Vale stories and a huge fan of her story lines and characters, so when I saw that she was writing a new series - one set in a small town community that focuses on the lives of teachers - I couldn’t wait to be introduced to a new set of colorful characters and the interesting things that happen to them and to those around them. Raleigh Jolie Crusie is definitely a heroine who readers will identify with; she’s a quite quirky, a total hot mess, and a klutz like no one I’ve ever seen, but her flaws and self-image issues are what make her real, and while there were times that I just wanted to put Raleigh in a bubble to protect her from herself, she is who she is and she can’t be someone she’s not regardless of how much she might desire to be in order to catch the eye of her old high school crush. Ezra McDuff was the hot high school athlete who everyone wanted to be and be with, and now as an adult, he’s the handsome teacher and coach who, despite his rough edges, everyone still wants a piece of him, and rightly so, because the further into the story I got, the easier it was to understand just who Ezra is and all of the good that he does for his students, his players, and his family, and the accident prone, amazing woman he will never not see again. There’s one plot line in the story that I struggled with, but that’s only because I’m a high school teacher and the reality of the situation explored was absolutely on point; I appreciated the way that Vale crafted this particular conflict, and I couldn’t help but think about similar incidences that have happened in my own district. Overall, though, this was just the feel good story I needed, and while there’s a bit of mystery, some drama, and a few creepy incidences, at the heart of the story is a good guy who finally sees the good girl who has always been in his life, and together, they find what they’ve been missing in each other, which also helps them grow as individuals and that’s the kind of character growth I love to see a hero and heroine experience. 4 Poison Apples

I loved the extreme clumsiness. There are a few triggers in the book. Another must retread from LLV.

My first though about this books was "Yay, a brand new series by an amazing author! I can't wait to get started!" Second thought was, "Wait. What? Southern Gentlemen?!? That's not what we do! We have bad boys, and we like them!" I have to say, I pouted a bit, thinking that a gentleman could never match up the LLV's boys, then I got over myself, and started reading. And boy, was it a ride! Different? Sure. But I couldn't help but love this story! Ezra and Raleigh were such a cute couple! And absolutely perfect for each other! Raleigh is a teacher, in a small southern town. Everyone knows everyone, everyone went to school together, and everyone knows everyone else's business, good and bad! She teaches high school in her home town, and wouldn't have it any other way. But, simply put, Raleigh is a menace! As sweet and likable as she is, she's beyond clumsy! It's like she has a little black rain cloud over her all the time, and Murphy sits on her shoulder, waiting to embarrass her. But she also considers herself invisible, a wallflower, someone who sits on the sidelines of life, watching it go by. Until, one day, her clumsiness puts her front and center, right in front of the man that has had her attention forever, the same man who never even knew she existed! Ezra is THAT guy! You know the one I'm talking about. He was the star football player in high school and college, then returned to his hometown to be the Football and Baseball Coach and most loved teacher. Literally, everyone loves him! But he is absolutely clueless! But that is what makes him so lovable! And when he realizes what is right in front of him, things go from 0 to 100! (I love insta-love!) If I could sum this book up in one though, it's that while Fate works in mysterious ways, she also works in her own time. Raleigh and Ezra grew up together, their entire lives, going to school together, being in classes together, and nothing ever happened. Until one day...... It's absolutely crazy how things work out, but it sure makes for a fantastic story! I absolutely loved the connection between Ezra and Raleigh, how perfect they were together, how they balanced each other out, and how real they were! Neither were over the top bada**es, like you see in a lot of stories, but there was a level of realism, of sincerity and truthfulness to them that took this story to another level. I can't say enough how much I enjoyed this book, and how I'm eagerly anticipating the next story! (On a side note, I totally adored Morgan, and hope we see more of him in the future, Maybe he will get his own HEA?!? )
