Candy Ray Sunshine—Yes, that is my real name, thank you very much, Mom and Dad—knew two things.
One, she was going to work her butt off and open her very own coffee shop, even if she had to die doing it.
Two, Banks Valentine was the world’s worst ex-boyfriend in the history of ex-boyfriends. Even if they were only boyfriend and girlfriend for one evening. She wouldn’t sneeze on him even if he was on fire.
Banks Valentine also knew two things.
One, he was an immature jerk when he was in high school, and Candy Ray Sunshine probably could open a coffee shop if she put her mind to it. But he still thinks that she should shoot a little higher, anything that gets her the heck out of Kilgore, Texas.
Two, he likes riding bulls. It’s a dangerous job, and when he gets on the back of one of those thousand-pound death machines, he can finally feel his head clear enough that he can think.
Candy and Banks would never get along. Not after what he said, and definitely not after what she did.
Then again, neither one of them expected that night to end the way it did, either—the night that both of them refused to talk about the next morning.
Candy Ray and Banks!!!! I’ve been excited for Chute Yeah since the previous book when we discovered that Candy Ray HATES Banks for something he did to her in high school. I love a good second chance!
So both of them crushed on the other, but one night brings all that to a grinding halt for Candy. But, they can’t ignore each other any longer since they are neighbors, and Candy finally spills about why that night changed her forever! This gives us a peek into Candy that will tug at your emotions for sure. It also gives Banks a chance to flex his primo book boyfriend muscles! Chute Yeah really brings together a great couple.
Chute Yeah hits the right blend of emotional, funny, and swoony and does so in a quick read that you could finish in a weekend. It is a great book to help take your mind of the current state of the world and find some happiness and joy! Lani Lynn Vale is one of my go to authors. She has never disappointed me and Chute Yeah continues the tradition. She has a TON of books out, so if you find you enjoy her writing, you have a plethora of backlist choices that include motorcycle clubs, dragon shifters, police, and cowboys! She writes them all!
