4.25 'My Other Half' Stars

I’m Only Here For The Beard is here and I keep getting more and more addicted to these Dixie Wardens Rejects MC, and to these monthly – how über fantastic is that? – Lani Lynn Vale’s delicious releases! It’s like a smoking hot bearded Christmas all year round!!! <3

Sean, aka Seanshine, we know from the previous Rejects installments, and all this bearded handsomeness, and Naomi we saw in most of the Kilgore Fire series (a felt so mad for the poor girl) finally said
Heeeeh, back to fantasy land for me.

Every time I read one of Lani Lynn Vale’s books I am guaranteed a few hours of escape into a world full of passion, drama, suspense, humor and love and I’m Only Here for the Beard is one of the best yet! Luckily Ms. Vale gives us at least one book a month or I would most definitely need rehab for LLV withdrawals.

I’m Only Here for the Beard is the much awaited story of Seanshine and Naomi, two people who have sworn off love because they continue to have their hearts ripped out by people they were

3.5 I’m Only Here for the Beard Stars

Ok so I have loved I mean LOVED everything I have read by Lani Lynn Vale. So I was extra excited to be able to read this book.

Now 3.5 stars is my rank and here is why. I liked the storyline but I did feel like it was rushed at the beginning and two that we are missing a few chunks of the story.

Because I loved Sean and how he treats Naomi is so freaking sweet.
And the attraction was there this is where I feel like we got gipped a little. We went from them b
Naomi has had enough of heartbreak, the man she has a huge crush on found is girl and it wasn't her. Deciding she needs a clean break and distance she leaves town and takes a job in a new town. Being paired with fellow EMT Sean is not so bad and she finds a connection with him but she is not willing to cross the line from co-workers to something more, even though the attraction builds every day.

Sean is sick of looking at the woeful looks he gets from his ex-girlfriend dumping him for another man
Lu Bielefeld **
The story follows the style already known of the author.
He remains friends with the ex-girlfriend and is reluctant to admit his feelings for our heroine. He's had his heart broken so many times that he's scared.
I've waited so long for the story of Naomi that I was a little disappointed.
Our heroine was physically and mentally very broken and gradually she is falling in love with the hero.
The interaction of the two is interesting because both are preserving their feelings and they take a while to

I laughed. More times than i can remember. And there were tears when that happened. And i'll come right out and say it: i googled the squatty potty and laughed some more. Hell, my boyfriend would spend HOURS on the toilet just because he was busy doing his thing and would only get up because his legs were numb and couldn't feel his butt. So i KNOW Naomi's problems - i live it, every single day. So now i'm debating if i

I loved this series, though I'm going to admit that I read this series all right after another while on vacation so it will be hard to review them since it was all one big story to me since i couldn't review in between. I will say that I LOVE this series. I haven't found a series I have been his excited about in a long time. I couldn't put any of these books down and didn't want to finish. thinking that I have to wait for the next two books is so depressing. I can't recommend this series enough ...more

This book didn't suffer from some of the pacing issues others have but it wasn't my favorite which is sad because I liked these characters so much! But there was some politicizing that just felt kinda of jarring and pulled you from the story ruining some very important scenes that followed pretty closely together. But over all I've been enjoying the series and I will continue.

I mean Im pretty sure I don't have to write this because anyone who's seen my book shelf knows Lani pretty much dominates it.
Her story's are absolutely seamless and written to perfection or at least my kind of book perfect. It definitely pulls at the heart Strings. As per though this is the perfect balance of love, humour and heartbreak. Everything is so well blended, the Story most definitely isn't smooth sailing, they're journey isn't a straight road and they deal with gut wrenching blows

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

I'm Only Here for the Beard is the fourth book in Lani Lynn Vale's The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC series. It can be read as a standalone but all the characters in this series are interconnected so its just so much more fun to read the whole series. Plus they are amazing books you do not want to miss. This is Sean and Naomi story.

This is book four in the Dixie Wardens Rejects MC series. I loved this book. Who am I kidding I’ve loved this whole series so far. Just when I get worried it won’t be as good as the last the author does it again. She has proved to me time and again she can. I loved this book for the first words uttered to the last. Even though thought here is suspense in this book, I don’t see it as deep as the others. Don’t get me wrong there is a storm brewing in this one that is a different level. Both main c ...more

Just like with any other Lani Lynn Vale book I have read lately I absolutely devoured I’m Only Here For The Beard. I love the men she writes, I love the females, I love the quotes at the beginning of each chapter because they almost always have me giggling or snorting because so many would be something that I would think or say.

I'm Only Here for the Beard is another good read from Lani Lynn Vale. I'm currently behind with her most recent releases over the last 12 months, she writes and releases them so quickly that I can't keep up!

The main 2 characters in this book, Sean and Naomi, are both nursing broken hearts.....both have had numerous failed relationships, so understandably are initially wary of feelings they both have for the other. The majority of this book is a fairly easy read - however this author doesn't shy

Red Cheeks Reads

As a long-time, die-hard fan of Lani Lynn Vale’s work, her monthly releases are constant and consistent source of pleasure for me. Her writing style is one that speaks to me. Her quirky sense of humor is rooted in reality in such a way that those moments are ones the reader can envision happening in their life with their friends. Her books never let me down and never fail to amuse and entertain me. But more than that, Vale always manages to deliver a romance that is a perfect balance

With the release of another great read to a great series we have Sean and Naomi. I'm trying to keep track of all the interlacing of these characters but it's hard!

Sean lost his love to a brother of the MC. Seeing them happy together kills him. Naomi only had eyes for PD but we know that was a lost cause. You do get to revisit him in this story.

This story has two strangers who become work colleagues and discover they have a lot in common, they've both been very unlucky in love. And they find them selves being drawn into a closeness neither of them anticipated.

Naomi's luck has really left her in the dumpster, she's given up on men, her secret love married someone else and her brother is a mess, he's destructive to himself and to others if they get in his way. She needs a new start and takes a hike, she starts a job in a position she has

You know the adage “Nice guys finish last”? Well, in Lani Lynn Vale’s newest release, I’m Only Here for the Beard, she proves how true that statement is by providing back stories for both her hero and heroine that illustrate them being the consolation prize in every one of their past relationships.

For Sean, he couldn’t get a woman to stay; she always found someone else who she wanted to be with more, leaving Sean with nothing but memories and heartbreak; for Naomi, she’s never had a man who hasn

I'm Only Here for the Beard is book 4 of the Dixie Wardens Rejects series but it is a stand alone. You have met Sean in previous books, so it was about time he had his own! Sean is a genuinely nice guy. He isn't a man whore, he isn't looking to hit it and quit it, but he can't seem to find a woman who wants to stick around. Naomi recently uprooted her life and moved to Mooresville after her brother hit her with his car and the man she had a crush on married someone else. Yeah, these two are kin

I'm Only Here for the Beard is the fourth book in The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC series, and it is Sean and Naomi's story.

What do you get when you place two people who drive each other mad into a close and stressful work environment? Chaos, I tell you, pure chaos. One minute, they are wanting to strangle each other, and the next, they are wanting to jump each other's bones!

This isn't my favorite of the books so far but I did enjoy it. It too me a while to warm up to these two characters. I understand that they had both had their hearts broken numerous times so they were more guarded. Some decisions they made ticked me off but it all worked out in the end. I don't remember Naomi from PD's story - so I'm going to go back to it and read a bit. There were a few different story lines going on so that kept my interest up.

You just can't help feeling sorry for both the main characters in this book, Sean and Naomi. Sean because he's a great guy that keeps getting crapped on by women. And Naomi because she keeps crapping on'll understand that better when you read the book. These two hit it off right away and also hit it off with me, the reader, from the beginning of the book. This story had some great humor mixed in with a couple of characters you can't help but love. There was a couple parts that I ...more

Sean is a man that has been through enough the woman he wanted didn't want him an not because he was doing her wrong but because she was in love with one of his brothers in the same MC (trust and believe there's a story behind that and I can't wait to see what it is). So of course he's leery when it comes to trusting women but his new partner somehow manages to break through that barrier. Naomi has had her own share of heartbreak especiall

Great Characters

This was another really enjoyable book by Lani Lynn Vale. The featured couple, Sean and Naomi are great together. Sean was different. Most of the male characters are super sexy, confident. alpha male badasses and while he was definitely sexy and badass, he was kind of lacking in confidence department due to past relationships. But, I really liked him, compared to how I've felt about some of the characters in in the last few books. Also, for some reason I didn't realize his relati

Lani has done it once again!! Every book she writes it just gets better and better. Her characters are simply amazing and her stories are always beautiful and ruff around the edges. She is and always will be my go to author. An the squatty potty OMG I haven't laughed that hard in a while. And I love that we get to see some of the other characters from the other series.

Naomi and Sean have had love and lost it. Many times. Every time they think it's going to work out it blows up in their faces.
