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.
Who say a motorcycle club member has to be all tough, rough, and hard??? Tommy is all that but he is also a doctor, a teacher, and a veteran. He has feelings, needs, and wants. Those wants happen to include Tally. Tally is his student who has a baby daughter. Together they are breaking rules, mending broken hearts, earning trust, and fixing wrongs of the past.
In true Lani Lynn Vale style I devoured Tommy and Tally’s story. Their attraction was so sweet and hot but it was the interactions with Tally’s daughter that won me over. Tommy took her daughter in his arms the very first time they met and I became mush. He had no responsibilities to Tally or her daughter yet he took it upon himself to take care of them and to be there even when she didn’t know she would need him. When Tallulah touched Tommy’s beard and Tally smiled I knew it was all over for them both. There was no turning back and forgetting each other.
Fear the Beard is part of a series but each book is its own entire story. The characters make appearances in each other’s story. Each book can be read as a standalone story.
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.
