Okay, onto this book.
When Lani branched out into the beard series, I was hesitant. Not because I didn't think she could do it, but because they were the unknown. I wasn't sure how they would all tie into her previous books. Once again, I read the first one and was hooked. I really think I'm hooked for life. I love how some of my favorite people make an appearance each one of her books. It's hard for me to sometimes keep them all straight, so I'm in awe in her ability to connect each character to other book characters.
I was not sure how Naomi fit into things. I knew Sean was connected because of Big Papa and Memphis, but I couldn't figure out Naomi. (Memphis is married to Downey "Bang Switch") Within the first paragraph, I put it together. (Again, She keeps them all straight, I get all confused without my notebook. I wouldn't be able to do this many books and keep all the connections clear.....I bow to you Lani, you are my author hero.) Naomi is the sister to Danny and best friends with Aspen. Aspen is my favorite jilted ex hero when she went Carrie Underwood on Danny's truck when she caught him cheating (Oxygen Deprived) I've always wanted to do what she did. IT WAS AWESOME (and illegal, I don't recommend doing this). Anyway, I digress.
Naomi and Sean coming together is just about perfect. It's realistic and is almost a sneak attack. It's gradual. It's a build. It makes you fall in love with them. It isn't the instant love that you sometimes see. Yes the attraction is there, but it's not insta-love. I really wanted to kick Naomi's brother's butt for what he did to her. I felt her awkwardness and pain for what she had to do to keep healthy. The acceptance that Sean has for her struggles really makes me love him more and more. Their friendship is really what is the foundation of their relationship. The pain and grief he felt when they lost the baby and Naomi almost died, I felt that. You feel the pain and grief of both Naomi and Sean when they are dealing with the loss and the aftermath. As a parent, I could relate to how difficult it would be to lose a child. Even with all that emotion, the laughter was still there. I seriously read and re-read the squatty potty scene. I laughed so hard EACH TIME I READ IT. It is by far my ALL TIME FAVORITE scene! That's also what I love about her books. Oh and the sex scenes. Those are always hot. Who doesn't love a hot bearded alpha man throwing his woman around? If you don't love that, then I pray for you. It's hot and great mommy porn. Just sayin'.
Lani uses REAL locations, REAL situations, and REAL pop cultural things. While I love getting lost in a good book that is TOTALLY made up, I really prefer to read books like Lani's. She doesn't hold back and make it all struggles with everything working out in the end. There is laughter, tears, love, hate, and sometimes death in her books. She gives you real life situations, with a little bit of made up. That's what keeps me coming back and pre-ordering her books each month. I am proud to say I own ALL of her books, digitally. I will begin my paperback collection soon. :)
Lani, I hope your characters keep talking to you. I will be sad if it ever ends. Thank you for providing me with monthly books of sexy bearded alpha men. While I have a real life version, a girl can never have too many in her life that she loves. Thank you!
I’m Only Here For The Beard is the fourth book in Vale’s Dixie Warden Rejects series, a spin-off of her best-selling, fan favorite Heroes of the Dixie Wardens series. Vale has grown tremendously as an author since that series, branching out into somewhat darker themes, with sexier storylines. There has been a lot of experimentation in her writing since that series, and it all comes together in this series.
This book is Sean and Naomi’s story. Two souls unlucky in love, brought together professionally but unable to fight the passionate draw between them. I couldn’t help but root for them to find their way; they both wanted love but had been burned by it in the past. A little gun-shy, a bit tentatively, slowly they come together in a story that was explosive, magical and vibrant.
I absolutely adored this book. While technically a standalone, I highly recommend that the series be read in order for the best experience. This book kept me tapping my Kindle late into the night – I couldn’t get enough, I couldn’t read fast enough. Full of hope, humor and heat, I’m Only Here For The Beard is another fantastic story from an author who consistently turns them out. Five smooches from me!
Their story was filled with juicy stuff; heartbreak, laughs, sexy times, swoony-worthy confessions, annoying pushing away scenes & a few WTF, WHY?! moments. Definitely one of those cereal-for-dinner-because-mommy-is-reading kind of books!
Ghost... I almost can't even go there. I am so incredibly frustrated with how drawn out his storyline has been. I hate all the carrots that have been dangled in front of our faces about him in each book & this one is no different. The wait for his book has truly been killer. Can't believe we have one more before he gets his happily ever after. *sigh*
On to the next book in the series (in 10 days), The Beard Made Me Do It, which features Jessie & Ellen. I'm not a big #TeamEllen fan at the moment but it'll bring me one step closer to Ghost's book, so Bring. It. On.
Side Note: Why don't I remember Fender?! I blame it on my #GhostObsession, I guess. :)
