He is the one that never looks her way.

He is rough around the edges and mean.

He is everything she’s ever wanted.

He doesn’t even know she exists.

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.

Hissy Fit

I was recommended this book and I was honestly surprised there was a book by Lani Lynn Vale I hadn’t listened to yet. She is a favorite author of mine.

This book was so unlike any of her other ones and I LOVED every last second of it.
I loved Raleigh and Ezra, they really go through a lot to get to where they end up and I loved that they both worked at their relationship.

Ezra is that boy you crushed on in high school the one that never knew you existed.
And Raleigh is the shy awkward girl who was invisible until she wasn’t. I just loved their story.

Great narration, seriously these two narrators were perfect for these particular characters.
I want more in this series!

I loved this book!!

The humor often had me laughing until I cried. It has a great storyline, which was sometimes sweet but also touched on some unfortunately true situations.

How did he not know who she was?!!

Ugh. There was so much wrong with this book that it was really hard for me to really like it. I could NOT get past the fact that they grew up in the same small Texas town, went to the same high school where he played football with her brother, now work at said high school.... yet Ezra didn’t know Raleigh’s name?

The speed in which they went from him not knowing who she was to Ezra being completely smitten with him gave me whiplash. And their first time together? The dude doesn’t even woo her. I felt like it was almost borderline assault, the way he took it upon himself to rid her of her V card while they were in lockdown during a tornado.

And her klutzy schtick got real old. The first few times it was cute, but then I just rolled my eyes every time there was another accident.

The performance, though, was great. Despite the lacks in the storyline, Ava Erickson and Jacob Morgan did a fantastic job with the material.

I kept waiting to figure out why this book is titled Hissy Fit. And the realization never came. Raleigh gets cranky about his past fling with another teacher (whom she can’t even call by name!) but doesn’t pitch a fit about it. Speaking of that teacher... Ew. That subplot where she was bedding a student I didn’t think was necessary.

Unfortunately, Hissy Fit wasn’t for me.

Loved it

I loved everything about this book. The narrators was spot on and the story was just so good. I read this book a while back and just couldn't help getting the audible and reliving the whole thing all over...
Will never get tired of this author and narrators :-)

Amazing Read

This series is very different from her usual series, but I've enjoyed it so far. Although the narrators are different from the regular ones that I'm really crazy about, but they did okay. Love anything by Lani Lynn Vale, she's just that amazing.

loved the story, not the narrators

I am an avid Lani Lynn Vale reader & listener, but the two she had narrating this book almost bored me to death. There was just no emotion to their voices. I will continue the rest of the series because I love the author, but not happy if these two are going to be doing the rest of series. The two she had doing The Dixie Wardens series were the best two yet.

Review: Southern Gentleman 1: Hissy Fit

Hissy Fit by Lani Lynn Vale is the first book in her Southern Gentleman series. First in a series of inter-connected standalone's set in a small town, this story is of one woman's long time crush finally seeing her for the first time and all the small-town drama that evolves from their connection.

Raleigh has had a longtime crush on Ezra, has worked at the same school with him for a few years, but it seems that this year is THE year he finally notices her. With all her clumsiness on display, he is entranced with this woman.

Ezra was the popular captain of the football team in high school, all-star, great guy that realizes he was an oblivious idiot in his younger years when he finally takes notice of the beautiful teacher that has to take over teaching his sex-ed class so he can focus on coaching. Not realizing that they were in school together and that he should know her, he sets his sights on her, drawn to her clumsy, gorgeous ways like he never has been before.

Well-written and well-paced, this story has all the awesomeness of a typical Lani Lynn Vale book without as much of the danger that is sometimes prevalent for some of her characters. The audio is sexy as sin with Ava Erickson and Jacob Morgan bringing these characters to life. Loved it! Enjoy!

Ezra + Raleigh = all the heart eyes!

5 Accidental Stars

Raleigh Crusie has been in love with Ezra McDuff since high school. She’s also been invisible to him this whole time...until she’s not. Literally falling at the feet of the man is one to get him to notice her, and notice her he does. Ezra is the local football hero, turned high school coach that everyone lusts after. He never really paid attention to one of the newest teachers at the school until she falls at his feet and he drops his box of condoms on her face.

I loved the flow of this book and how adorkable Raleigh really is. Accident prone is an understatement! But, I love how Ezra just goes with the flow and is there to catch her when she does fall, which is often lol. There is so much growth throughout this story as well as lots of life lessons. Classic LLV humor, with a touch of suspense and the witty banter I’ve come to love between her beloved characters. There were many subjects touched on that I felt LLV did justice in bringing the seriousness to life. No spoilers...you’ll just have to read and find out for yourself. Great start to what looks like another great series from Lani Lynn Vale. The narrators really hit this one out of the park.

Loved it!

This was a cute and easy listen. The narrators weren't Kendall Taylor and Mason Lloyd but I think they did a good job bringing these characters to life. I will admit to listening to this more than once. I hate it's not part of the other series hemispheres, but it was good. I just missed the character overlaps that you see in almost all of her other series.
