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 am a huge fan of Lani Lynn Vale if you haven’t already guessed and I swear with each new book I keep having a new favorite from her and Fear The Beard is my new favorite! I devoured this one like I do all of her books and when I was done I wanted more of my favorite Dixie Warden Rejects MC bikers. Me wanting more after I finish one of her books isn’t anything new I am always impatiently waiting for the next book but before I get ahead of myself let me tell you about Fear The Beard.
Can I have Tommy aka Dr. Bones be my Dr. because holy hell he is hot! I mean he could practice mouth to mouth on me any day of the week, hell I think I may need some right now. He is also an instructor for the nursing students. Hello Dr./teacher combo! He knows what can happen to not only him but Tally as well if their relationship is ever discovered but the heart wants what the heart wants. I felt for him at times because I know he didn’t want to wait for Tally to graduate but I also understood where Tally was coming from.
Tally was almost done with nursing school, she has been working hard and being a single mother on top of it just added to the stress and length it is taking her to finish. She is sassy and I loved her! The interactions between her and Tommy had me laughing more than once as well as squirming in my seat because these two are hot together. Tally doesn’t want to screw up this close to being finished with nursing school, and she has good reason not to, but Tommy is making that resolve hard because she wants him just as much if not more than he wants her.
The drama that happens in this one was one I thought would go one way but it took a complete left turn a crazy town and had me saying well that was one I didn’t see coming. I love the bit of drama Ms. Vale adds to these books it keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Fear The Beard is another must read from Lani Lynn Vale and one that absolutely needs to be on your TBR lists right this very minute!
