Raleigh Crusie was such an endearing character, I couldn’t help but love her. An incredibly klutzy person prone to all sorts of accidents and injuries, Raleigh, a high school teacher, has been crushing hard on the town golden boy since he was a quarterback a year ahead of her in high school. The problem was he didn’t even see her back then, and Raleigh is certain he doesn’t see her now. Until he does. Ezra McDuff, now a high school teacher as well as the baseball coach, was kicking himself for not noticing Raleigh before now. A good guy and alpha to the core, he falls hard and fast for her.
I loved their sweet and tender romance, and the suspenseful portion of the plot kept me tapping my Kindle furiously. Vale is doing what she does best in this series, and that’s building a new world in Texas for her readers to fall in love with. Five smooches from me for Hissy Fit by Lani Lynn Vale!
I am not a fan of the H/h feels a certain way (which is made clear through out the entire story), expresses his/her legitimate opinion on the matter, then feels guilty for expressing said opinion with an apology.
I also feel that there were to many incidents with the h it was annoying. I have a real hard time when anyone gets hurt. For me there is no humor with it.
I still love LLV stories, this story was just not for me. I will read more of LLV books with her being one of my favorite authors :)
LLV has the inane ability to draw you in deep and fast and put you in a position to where you feel as if you are a part of the world she has carefully crafted. First of all, Raleigh. It's the town I have lived in my entire life, so right off the bat I was in love. I don't think I have ever read a more clumsy, fallible, and lovable character in my life. She was endearing to the point you wanted to wrap her in a cocoon and fight all her battle for her. While underneath she certainly possessed a strength most didn't see, I loved how vulnerable she was and I especially loved that Ezra recognized that (well, when he finally noticed her that is). I enjoyed that most of the setting took place in a school. We don't have enough books written about our unsung heroes and I loved that it was the setting she chose. We were able to fall in love with them in the halls and classrooms and ball fields all while having the added dynamics of the students and other teachers.
But above everything else, I just really loved the chemistry between Raleigh and Ezra. I appreciated that he had to work for it and she didn't just fall over for him (well, I mean she physically did, but she made him work for the rest). I loved that there was no BS. Once they both realized what was there, that was it. Between the tender moments and explosive ones, I lived for them all! They were both genuinely good people who cared about their community and doing better for those around them. They could have both gone on to bigger things, but both wanted to stay in the community that raised them. The community where they had roots.
LLV did an excellent job setting up the rest of this series with many side characters and even more possibilities of pairings. I cannot wait to see where the next few books take us. I have my suspicions, but I will eagerly wait with everyone else to see if I'm right.
Hmm... This was a mixed bag for me.
I LOVED the fact that this author stepped out of her HUGE interconnected series (where characters continuously make appearances throughout each others' books) & decided to write in a completely new world. There is still the overall vibe of her writing but it felt... different somehow.
Unfortunately, I wasn't a big fan of the main characters. I thought they were great together but as individuals, they irked me.
Ezra... Man, if I didn't have to hear about how he ignored & NEVER noticed Raleigh in the past (like, EVER throughout the years), I think I would've liked him more. I just had trouble believing he magically fell in love with her one day, even with me being a big fan of insta-love stories. I just felt like I couldn't trust him or something, even though present-day Ezra was pretty swoony at times.
Raleigh... She kinda frustrated me. I ADORED her persistence & thoughtfulness where Morgan was concerned but... the annoying outweighed the good with her character. Her klutziness was a little too much. She trips over thin air on what seems like every other page & it got old, fast. The biggest though, was how she crushed on Ezra for practically her entire life; even when he failed to acknowledge her existence. It just made her seem... desperate & I didn't like that one bit, even if they were pretty cute together. *sigh* #disappointed
Even if it wasn't my favorite (hey, they can't all be a favorite), I will definitely check out the next book in the series, Lord Have Mercy. Camryn's character seems like she'll be a lot of fun & quite the handful for Flint, thank gods.

This book is the first in a new series. Raleigh is a teacher, who is renowned throughout the town as the clumsiest person to ever walk it’s streets. She has had an unrequited crush on Coach Ezra McDuff since high school. He doesn’t know she exists because she is quiet and shy, and always has been.
Ezra finally notices Raleigh when she falls over a box of wrapping paper, taking out himself and three others. On his way to the floor the giant box of condoms, he bought for his nephew, smacks her in the face giving her a bloody nose. Not the best way to get someone’s notice!
After Ezra finally notices Raleigh he can’t stop thinking about her. Since she has an enormous crush, it doesn’t take much to persuade her to go out with him. There doesn’t seem to be much challenge in the relationship, all their problems come from outside sources.
There were a couple of instances when Ezra’s behaviour was a bit lacking, that were just brushed over, which annoyed me somewhat. It also seemed a little idealistic that a relationship based on a lifetime’s crush would have such a smooth transition from imagination and longing to actually being together.
Another review stated that Raleigh was a bit of a caricature of the naive, clumsy, virginal teacher, and I have to agree with that somewhat. However, there were a few things that counterbalance that view point. She really cares about her students, despite her fear of the very large senior football players. Her relationship with her family is solid as is her friendship with Camryn. She has experienced loss and pain which gives her some depth.
Basically this, like most books by the author, is a fairly easy read, filled with sweet romance and humour. It’s an unchallenging read, but it is pretty entertaining.
She is a level 5 stalker
He is a level 5 creep so I guess they were perfect for each other.
I’m glad it didn’t follow cliches and was unique to a degree though not really remarkable and I was tired of her clumsiness early on.
It was kind of a meh read, not bad but not great.
Just not something I’d re read and probably not something I’ll overly remember
Loved this story and wish I could score higher than 5 stars, but alas I can’t! Love Ezra and Rayleigh and I look forward to seeing what mischief Camryn her bestie gets up too😍
The clueless coach and the accident prone invisible woman.
Frustration and love :) I couldn't love this book more than I did.
Lani has yet again written such an interesting story and the twist I didn't see coming was such a shocker.
Loving the start of a new series and can’t wait for more.
I know whenever I enter the world of Lani Lynn Vale I will leave with a smile. Until next month when my next pre order comes available....
