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.
LLV has been really packing in the emotions in her most recent books and it is no different in Chute Yeah. She is going for broke and is not holding back. Candy and Banks story is here and my goodness, the tears were flowing. My.Poor.Heart.
Whether you’re an older or newer fan to this series, you have the history of the Valentine’s and it’s tragic and absolutely heartbreaking. Banks survived one of the worst days of his life and you have to wonder how someone can come back after that. When it came to Banks and some of his actions towards Candy when they were younger, I honestly wasn’t sure how he was going to redeem himself. And I even questioned how deep his crush went for Candy, but oh boy, he won me over.
Candy is the absolute light in this book. She is such a sweetheart and has a little bit of feist. Her story broke me too. And she was such a brave character. After everything that Banks put her through, how will he win her over?
Despite their not so great history during their teens, the chemistry was absolutely insane. I loved how flirty Banks was towards Candy. He wasn’t holding anything back to get the girl.
The series definitely gets better and better with every new book. And their story is probably my favorite so far.
