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 enjoyed Fear the Beard more than I expected. LLV books have been hit or miss for me lately. I thought book 1 in the series was good, but not great or anything. With this being a bit of a taboo/student-teacher thing, I wasn’t sure I would like it. However, it is well done!
Dr. Tommy is charming and endearing and Tally is sweet and likable. The tension comes mostly from wondering if their relationship will be discovered. There are a few bumps in the road from these two just not talking things out sometimes, but nothing that bothered me a great deal (miscommunication tropes are some of my least favorites!).
What made this book absolutely wonderful in my opinion was the epilogue! So freaking perfect! I just loved it!
The narrators are great! Good accents and engaging voice acting keep me entertained and focused. I am really liking these two narrators and I hope they will continue the series!
