Title: Fear the Beard
Series: The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC Series #2
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
Tally is a twenty-year-old single mother struggling to finish nursing school. Has she made mistakes in life? Sure, but her daughter isn’t one of them. She works hard, she studies even harder, and she’s only a few weeks away from graduating. She’s living her life the best she knows how when she witnesses a near miss motorcycle accident between a car and a biker. A biker that happens to be the most talked about teacher at her college. The moment she meets those startling blue, narrowly-escaped-death eyes, she realizes quickly that life as she knows it has changed. No longer will she be content to let life pass her by, even if it puts everything she’s worked so hard for in jeopardy. *** Tommy is a highly skilled doctor. A teacher. A veteran. A fully-patched member of The Dixie Wardens MC. He’s lonely, but also set in his ways. What will it take for this man to accept that he needs to make some changes in his life? Apparently, it’ll take a guy in a truck, who’s preoccupied with his phone rather than focused on the road, nearly plowing into him on his bike at seventy miles per hour. Oh, and a twenty-something year old nursing student witnessing the entire thing from only a few feet away. It only takes a second, a single heartbeat in time, as he looks into her worry-filled eyes to realize that he’d give anything for a single night with her. He may lose his job in the process, but after that one incredible night turns into an amazing weekend, he knows it’s worth the risk for the promise of her forever.
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, 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.
While this may be the second book in this new series (The Dixie Warden Rejects MC) it can be read as a standalone. I did not read the first book and you will not have any problems reading as each book contains a different set of characters that intrigue you as secondary characters in the series. Once again, we have a five-star read from LLV. If you have not read a book by her yet, you will not be disappointed and will want to read her other series as well. Trust me!
Fear the Beard should have been titled Fear the Bones, just saying lol. Dr. Bones (sorry Tommy, know you don’t like being called this) is hot and his beard and Alpha protectiveness of both Tally and her daughter, Tallulah will leave you wanting to be scratched by his beard and panting all throughout this book. You have been warned, but in a good way.
From the beginning of this book, you will fall in love with Tally, a single mother going to school to be a nurse and working full-time as well as dealing with a very sick child most of the time. Then we meet Tommy and boom the insta-love between all three strike and will have your heart melting. Tallulah may not like her real dad (though I do not blame you), but she sure likes Dr. Tommy.
This book fulfills it all, forbidden student-teacher, single mom, MC life, explosive chemistry and bumps in the rode you don’t see coming with twist. You will even want to throttle a couple people in this book. You will fall in love with the secondary characters as well and I really want to know more on Ghost. His name alone is intriguing. That epilogue is the topper especially after protective Tommy was hilarious when it came to Tallulah and how it leads to this. Once again you will not be disappointed and will want to read this in one sitting.
