Tobias knows that women are a lot of trouble, and one in particular is more trouble than most. Yet even with the knowledge that she’s a pain in the ass, he doesn’t stop himself from doing the one thing he knows that he shouldn’t do—fall in love with her.
It’s supposed to be simple. Get in, get the girl, and get out.
What Tobias isn’t supposed to do is fall for the woman he’s supposed to rescue. But he can’t help being intrigued–and amused–by the defiance rolling off Audrey every time he so much as speaks to her. This fascination only intensifies with every single word from her delectable mouth.
It’s been six years since her assault, yet it feels like it happened just yesterday. Audrey’s sick and tired of feeling so useless. She’s had enough of being scared, she’s doesn’t want to be all alone for the rest of her life. All of that boils down to a woman who’s had enough of not doing anything to reclaim her life.
She’s at a loss as to how to move on, and every attempt she makes results in failure. Just when she’s ready to quit, a sexy biker is there to push her out of her comfort zone.
Under Tobias’ patient guidance, Audrey slowly makes her way back to herself. She lands a job that she adores, and she thinks she’s finally found her place in this world. Most surprisingly, though, she finds herself falling in love with a man that honestly scares her to death.
Just when she vows to take that final step that’ll put her past in her past forever, the life she wants to live is yanked away. Leaving her with nothing to pick up the pieces.
Why oh why does this have to be the last book in this series! I am both sad and excited. Sad because I have loved every single book in this series and am not ready to let go of some of my favorite bearded Dixie Warden Rejects. I am excited because I know this means we will be moving onto a new series which I know I will love and that we will see the guys again but sometimes we wish a series could go on forever.
For The Love Of Beard was funny, sexy and emotional just like all the rest but I think due to the nature of Audrey’s history it made it even more so. I loved the way Tobias aka Fender stuck around and made ways for him to work himself into her life and her heart. He alone made me love the book because of his love, patience and protectiveness was exactly what Audrey needed. I love that these tough cops, firemen, EMT’s and bikers all fall hard for their women and will do whatever it takes to keep them safe.
Normally I will sit and absolutely devour one of Ms. Vale’s books in one sitting but I made sure to savor and drag my reading out over a couple of days because I just wasn’t prepared to let these characters go, I am still not if I have to be honest. For The Love Of Beard was an amazing conclusion to an amazing series and this book whore can’t wait to get her hands on the next book Ms. Vale releases.
