Today we are delighted to be sharing Lani Lynn Vale’s all-new romantic comedy, HISSY FIT
He is the one that never looks her way.
He is handsome and strong.
He is rough around the edges and mean.
He is everything she’s ever wanted.
He doesn’t even know she exists.
Her life is a joke.
She doesn’t step on cracks in the sidewalk.
She laughs at inappropriate times.
She talks when she shouldn’t.
She is clumsy and trips on air.
She is finally on his radar.
God help her now.

This is my first book by this author and I decided to jump in blind. I did not read the blurb because I wanted to be surprised and I definitely was.
Ezra is the local high school football and baseball coach, the town’s most eligible bachelor, he is quite the catch. He might be cocky but he has a heart of gold. His rapport with his pupils is top notch and he treats them equally. The day he knocked Raleigh off her feet and made her nose bleed will definitely change his life.
Raleigh is one of the new teachers in her local high school. She is a walking disaster, the queen of klutz and a frequent visitor in the ER. To say that she is clumsy is an understatement. She has had a long-standing crush on Ezra since they went to the same school but he never even knew she existed. She always felt invisible blending in the shadows but when she fell over and got a black eye and a nose bleed, she finally got Ezra’s attention.
Told in dual points of view, this contemporary romance is set in a small town where everybody knows everyone’s business. Raleigh’s mishaps and accidents were so legendary that I sometimes felt it was a borderline slapstick comedy. But the tender moments and steamy escapades between Ezra and Raleigh are swoon-worthy and although this romantic tale is meant to be light-hearted, there are some serious issues that were actually tackled in this book.
I am glad that Raleigh was able to connect and help out a bullied student. The way that Raleigh and Ezra addressed the bullying is inspiring and quite apt with what is happening in our schools today. The secondary characters especially Moira, Ezra’s little niece provided the comic relief; her innocent quips were hilarious it gave me some laugh-out-loud moments. Ezra and Raleigh’s romance does not only entertain, but is also inspiring and heart-warming. I am glad I got to read this book, Lani Lynn Vale is my new favourite and I am looking forward to reading more of her books.
