Tobias knows that women are a lot of trouble, and one in particular is more trouble than most. Yet even with the knowledge that she’s a pain in the ass, he doesn’t stop himself from doing the one thing he knows that he shouldn’t do—fall in love with her.

It’s supposed to be simple. Get in, get the girl, and get out.

What Tobias isn’t supposed to do is fall for the woman he

4.5 'Healing Hearts' Stars

Hot damn! Lani Lynn Vale did it again, and I'm equal parts sad to see my LLV's FAV series go (though we know we'll get more at some point from the Dixie Wardens Rejects, yay) and so, so very happy, because For The Love of Beard, Tobias and Audrey story, really was the PERFECT conclusion for the series. A story of rebirth and healing at its very best, with Toby stealing my heart with the way he cherished and loved Audrey from their very first encounter! I Adored these tw

I love all of Lani Lynn Vale's stories but I can 100% say that Tobias and Audrey's story is her best yet! Audrey has been through a severely horrific ordeal, an ordeal perpetuated at the command of the people she should be able to count on to protect her at all cost.  Six years later and the incident still controls her life and keeps her from "living" she's just going through the motions, until Tobias comes into her life. Something about him makes her want to let down her guard and try to live
Tobias has been crushing hard on Audrey since he was sent to protect her. The threat to her is gone but his interest in her has not waned. The one thing he knows is that she needs to break out of the shell she is hiding behind, he knows she was assaulted and she has made strides but he plans to push her a bit along the way.

Audrey never thought she would be interested in a man again, but Tobias is growing on her. She feels safe with Tobias and the more time they spend with one another, Audrey re

I loved this book seeing Audrey and Tobias get their happy ending was so perfect and seeing this series come to an end(I'm assuming was sad) but I love that we see some characters that will be getting a new series. Like with all the books in this series I blew through it, I didn't want to put this book down and in fact I didn't unless I had to. Tobias was an amazing hero he is strong, possessive, caring and perfect for Audrey. After all Audrey went through she needed a special hero and she got t ...more

Oh how I love thee, Tobias and Audrey what a great story. I am so glad she gets an HEA she really deserves it.

I loved it from the beginning to the end. I did feel them getting together was a little fast but really I think she was ready and he was just the perfect fella for her.

Both of their pasts shaped who they are and since they both have some scares it works.

I loved the narration I am so looking forward to the next book like you have NO idea.

I adore Lani Lynn Vale and all of her books, but this series—the Dixie Wardens Rejects—has quickly become my favorite of hers. I’ve honestly loved each and every single book, and while I’m completely fulfilled and pleased with how the series concluded, I’m also sorry to see it end. You could just tell from her writing, the ease with which these stories seemed to be told, that Vale herself enjoyed this series as well. I don’t think I’m alone in the hope that she revisits the Dixie Ward

The last one in the series… *sob*

I love this series about family, love, loss, hope and the tie that brings it all together, of course, beards! Tobias and Audrey get their story and it’s almost fitting that it is the last in the series as they personify all that is good about their blended families…

Trauma and grief, loss, have contributed to make them both wary yet all too aware of how fleeting happiness can be. When they finally realize they can act on the feelings and chemistry they both feel,

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the brilliant Lani Lynn Vale, so I'll say it again, there isn't ANYTHING that she releases that I don't LOVE A TON! And For the Love of Beard is no exception at all! See, "it was supposed to be simple. Get in, get the girl, and get out," for Tobias, but he did what he wasn't supposed to, fall for the woman he rescued. No matter how hard she tries to push him away, he doesn't let it phase him, and instead he's entertained by Audrey, in all of her defiance. It's been 6 ...more

Why oh why does this have to be the last book in this series! I am both sad and excited. Sad because I have loved every single book in this series and am not ready to let go of some of my favorite bearded Dixie Warden Rejects. I am excited because I know this means we will be moving onto a new series which I know I will love and that we will see the guys again but sometimes we wish a series could go on forever.

Lord have mercy on my soul, Lani is trying to kill me. That whole wedding scene I spent in a ball chortling with laughter, tears streaming down my face and I could not catch my breath. That is one of the funniest things she's written to date apart from Payton's fart scene in Another One Bites The Dust .. that one is yet to be topped.

The story is definitely touching on very sensitive subjects and at times is a lot to take in emotionally. Lani never fails to amaze me with her sheer talent of alwa

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about Lani Lynn Vale’s Dixie Wardens’ bikers, it’s that when they go all in, investing everything that they are and giving everything that they have to give, nothing and no one will step them from claiming who or what they want, even if it’s a pain in the ass she-devil who’s supposed to be off-limits simply because she’s one of his biker brother’s sister.

Vale makes it perfectly clear, early on in her stories, that there are significant reasons as to why her hero

Six years ago Audrey was assaulted and the worse part of it, its by people that was suppose to protect her and care for her. But then her brother, who she didn't know was alive, came for her by sending Tobias to bring her home.
Tobias didn't want another women to care for, both his sisters died and he didn't want another women to care about. But then he met Audrey and he knew right away that she was perfect for him.
Audrey didn't know if she could trust

Wow! Just wow! For the Love of Beard is the seventh and final book to the Dixie Warden Rejects series and what a finale it is. I didn’t think LLV could top Ghost’s book, but man! She blew me away with Tobias and Audrey. From page one I was totally engrossed in this book. Tobias is an Alabama Highway Patrolman, a member of the Dixie Wardens, and burdened by his own demons. Audrey is one of the strongest characters that LLV has ever written in my opinion. She truly thinks she’s bro

This can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest that you read life to my flight and beard up to better understand the heroine while you are doing that you should also ...more

Thoroughly enjoyable read.

I love that the focus of this story is on Audrey and Tobias as a couple. Yes, there is some drama but it is a ultimately a romance story. Tobias is just the man to help Audrey overcome her demons and she helps calm his. I loved these two.

Audrey is Ghost's sister and was "rescued" from her parents in the last book. Her life changed in an event orchestrated by her father. She is determined to live again and Tobias is by her side helping the whole time. Tobias has some tr

I don't know where Lani Lynn Vale comes up with these things. She had me laughing out loud in parts and about ready to throw my kindle in others.

The ride she takes us on with Tobias and Audrey is an awesome one. Lani takes you on a journey of how two broken people find the safety in one another and realize that they both want things they didn't realize they even wanted.

I just can not get enough of this series.😍. For the love of beard was a great read , i loved how characters from other books pop up in these books and the friendships are strong ,powerful and comedic . Its always a hoot to see the banter between them wether they are brother's by blood or by choice . Its good to see . I felt so much for tobias and audrey and i was glad that they both got their own happily ever after.
I loved the ending ha ha didnt see that coming at all.

Love the Dixie Warden Rejects each and every broken but strong one of them!
Tobias and Audrey Yep I knew they would be together. They just had to get over the bumps and bruises of their pasts. They were too perfect not to be together. They fit and they fixed each other and I LOVED watching it play out!!!

As with all of her books, the story pulls you in, leaves you a little bit breathless, and keeps you in its grasp until the end, it was certainly an experience reading this couples fight to get their happily ever after."

LOVE LOVE LOVE Tobias & Audrey! I think this is one of my favorites. The banter, the healing, the FUN! My only minor complaint with this one is that - if you haven't been reading the various series - you can get kinda lost. I don't think it makes a good stand alone for this reason, but I still want everyone to read it. There's some pretty steamy steam going on on that cruise, too.

AND OH MY HECK, THE END! The chosen wedding attire. *plop* Such a fun surprise. ; )

For the Love of Beard is the seventh book in The Dixie Warden Rejects Series and my absolute favorite. I didn’t know how Lani Lynn Vale could top the emotional rollercoaster that was the last book, Beard Up, but she really out did herself with #7 in this series. I think Tobias aka Toab aka Fender is my favorite LLV hero. 

I LOVED how patient Tobias was with Audrey. They reminded me of magnets because they were just naturally drawn to each other from the beginning. They were both broken in their o

I was excited to read this one. Liked the sample enough to purchase the book for $3.99, but by 45%, I was so bored.

The H and h go on a cruise and basically have sex and eat. It was so bland. No drama, no real suspense. Everything was so "nice-nice". What happened to the hero's sister and then to the heroine was awful and I wanted to connect, but I didn't. I love reading stories that involve abused and traumatized heroines and overprotective heroes, but nothing was happening. It was t
