One look at the sixteen-year-old, prim and proper town goody-two-shoes, Hennessy Hanes, and Tate Casey knows he’s in trouble. He knows he should stay away from the preacher’s daughter, but there’s something about her he’s drawn to, and he can’t resist the pull.
The more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that something isn’t right. He may not be able put his finger on what it is, but he’s determined to find out what’s going on with the girl with the haunted eyes.
Tate didn’t anticipate that someone else would be just as determined to keep Hennessy’s nightmare a secret, and he never realizes just how far that person is willing go to keep those skeletons in the closet until it’s too late.
With the very real threat of jail time hanging over his head, Tate leaves without a backwards glance at the town or the girl. The problem is that out-of-sight doesn’t necessarily mean out of mind, and it’s Tate who’s now haunted by his decision and memories of Hennessy.
Hennessy Hanes knows better than anyone not everything is always as it appears to be. After years of being on the receiving end of her squeaky-clean preacher father’s abuse, she seizes an opportunity to leave it all behind and runs.
Her only regret is that in walking away she loses any chance with the one person who tried to save her.
Fast forward ten years, and they’re both back where they started.
Tate was never a good boy, and it turns out that the man he’s now grown into isn’t all that much better. Anger is a living, breathing part of him, and there’s a court order forcing him to seek help from the one person he’s never forgotten.
Hennessy never thought she’d see Tate Casey again, and certainly not on her couch. But now it’s her turn to save him, and there are rules she must follow as his psychologist, not to mention a court order instructing her to help him manage his anger. If she doesn’t follow those rules, he’ll end up back in jail.
Tate Casey has never been a man who followed the rules, and Hennessy is no longer the straight-laced, timid preacher’s daughter she once was.
His hands may be tied, so it looks like for the first time in Hennessy’s life, she’ll be the one breaking the rules for the chance to finally get what she’s always wanted. Him.
I've read every book out in this series so far and don't know which is my favorite but I think it may be this one. Tate and Hennessy have known each other since they were kids. Tate was older known as the towns troublemaker. Hennessy the daughter of the town preacher who was also a hypocrite. This man was horrible and abusive, but I will not get to much into that.
Tate just got out of jail for killing some gangsters that were raping a young girl and was appointed a psychologist for his anger management. Guess who was his psychiatrist No other then Hennessy she always had a crush on Tate, but her father hates him. I think the man doesn't even like himself.
When she finds out that she is his psychiatrist all of those feelings comes back. She has the town and her father on her back cause they do not approve of her relationship with Tate and Tate has an unexpected something that happens that may stop their relationship before it begins.
Great book I will definitely read it again and can't wait for the next book in this series.

I am loving the Hail raiser series. Tate and Hennessy deserved their sexy happy ever after. Lani never disappoints! Nice to see other characters again. Can't wait to read their stories too.
