Hail Mary by Lani Lynn Vale: Release Blitz + Review

Title: Hail Mary
Series: Hail Raisers #6
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romance Suspense 
Release Date: February 9, 2018

Mary Persephone Hail Mary—well-wished-for child.

 Persephone—destruction. Hail—well that speaks for itself. 

Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child. Persephone, though? Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail? Yeah, that’s just the final f-you. The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete. Or so he thinks. What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask? Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival. Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain. Dante’s a bad person. He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds. 

Karma is finally catching up to him. This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation.

 This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives. He doesn’t want this child. But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not. With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life. But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind. Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he's suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

We FINALLY get Dante!!! If you are an avid Lani Lynn Vale fan then you are aware of the anticipation of this book!!

Dante has been through absolute hell. The life he built was taken from him in an instant. Instead of sticking around with what family he did have left he went into hiding. That is until a one night stand found him and left him with their daughter. A daughter that helped him come out of his hole he was slowly burying himself in.

Cobie has been through a lot in life as well. She has already fought cancer once and won but can she win again? Dante found her and was a knight in shining armor when she needed it the most but can this knight let go of the family he lost and move forward or will he be stuck in the past and hide back in the hole he dug out before?

This was such an emotional book, so many ups and downs, but that is what made it perfect. Life is not all butterflies and rainbows. That’s what I love about Lani’s books the most. Yeah sometimes the stories are out there but totally plausible. She has a way of sucking you right in the story from the get-go. Loved this book with a quickness and I was not able to put it down.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 8, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
