RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - I'm Only Here For The Beard (The Dixie Warden Rejects #4) by Lani Lynn Vale
Title: I'm Only Here For The Beard
Series: The Dixie Warden Rejects #4
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
Sean is a man with needs—needs that a lot of women were ready and willing to fulfill. Yet, the only woman that he wants to fulfill them dumped him for another man. A man who’s a member of his MC and is someone he has to see every single day and twice on Sundays.
He’s bitter and angry. He’s definitely not in the right frame of mind when it comes to dealing with women. Which is unfortunate for his new partner, Naomi, a fresh-out-of-school and totally green paramedic.
Naomi’s got enough problems on her plate. A brother who’s self-destructive and doesn’t care who he takes down with him. A man who she’s in love with but who doesn’t love her. A job that she hates because it is a constant reminder of what she can’t have.
Desperate to distance herself from her problems, she runs, taking the first job in her field that she finds willing to take on someone with so little experience.
The last thing she needs is a perpetually pissed off partner, especially when he sets her blood on fire.
But life doesn’t ask how much you can handle when it dishes out challenges. It just keeps piling them on until you’ve bested them or you’ve buckled under them.
Sean really doesn’t want to like his new partner, Naomi. He just wants to be left alone to live his life however he damn well pleases and without complications.
Naomi doesn’t care what he wants, she can’t be anything but herself. It isn’t long before she’s breaking down his walls and making him feel again. She’s trying to pull him closer and he’s pushing her away.
It’s not long before Sean sees the error of his ways.
It’s too bad, though, that by the time he realizes she’s the one, Naomi’s already gone.
Once again, I am in the minority when it comes to this author's books. This the third book I have read written by her and for the love of all that is holy, I don't UNDERSTAND why I can't get with these books.
The story is good. It has a sexy alpha. The heroine is not a spineless doormat. The sex scenes are good. But for the life of me, I CAN NOT connect with the couple. I literally had to make myself finish the book because I just had no real interest in Naomi and Sean's relationship or issues. And both has some real issues. Naomi with her unfortunate choices in men and her colostomy bag. Yes........a colostomy bag. (Brightside.....she doesn't have it thru the whole story.) Sean falls for the wrong woman and she falls for someone else, his biker brother. How unlucky is that???
I know I gave it a 3, I just could not give it a bad rating because the book is not bad. It has some interesting elements and the writing is good. Seriously, it's not the book.......it's me.
