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.
Lani Lynn Vale has once again delivered a book that I couldn’t put down!

Humor – yep
Off the chart chemistry – yep
Interesting plot – yep
Great epilogue – yep
Tally has become one of my favorite heroines. She is a young woman doing everything she can to go to nursing school, work to support her daughter, spend quality time with her daughter and to tries to do it with minimal help from others. Tommy, aka Dr. Tommy, aka Dr. Bones, is sexy, sweet, alpha, is in a MC and is the owner of a super-hot beard! He also happens to the doctor in charge on some of Tally’s shifts at the ER where she is interning. Oh and he is the professor for one of her college courses…No big deal right?
WRONG! From the moment they meet Tally and Tommy have an undeniable attraction, at that point neither think they will see each other again, imagine the shock when they find out they are thrust into the roles of student/teacher! Tommy knows that Tally is off limits but he can’t resist wanting her and Tally doesn’t want to risk everything she’s worked so hard for.
Tommy and Tally are perfect together, the supporting cast is loving and funny and there’s a shocker that had my mouth hanging open. Last but in no way least, is Tallulah, she steals every single scene she is in and I absolutely love the instant bond Tommy and Tallulah formed, Big bad Dr. Bones totally melted when Tallulah was around.
I love everything about Fear the Beard! It’s forbidden, funny, sexy, cute and sweet! Add in the epilogue and Fear the Beard makes another great addition to Ms. Vale’s shelf of amazing books!
