Series: The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC #6
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
Ghost [gohst] noun: the soul of a dead person, a disembodied, vague, shadowy spirit wandering among or haunting living persons; a mere shadow or semblance; a trace.
That noun sums up Ghost and what his life has become with painful precision. He is barely living, merely existing but never thriving. There wasn’t much that could pull him from the darkness he willingly inhabits…except one thing. Her.
She is the reason he’s done what he’s done, and his life has become what it has become.
He haunts his former life, lurking in the background, surviving on occasional glimpses of the only thing good that is left in his miserable life. The horror he has inflicted upon her is nothing compared to the terror that waits for her when someone moves in to take her from him.
The thing about being stuck in the past is that it is like walking through life backwards. She is always looking back, so she doesn’t see what is happening in front of her. Unfortunately for her, it turns out that the ghosts of the past aren’t nearly as terrifying as the monsters of the future.
They say that true love is like a ghost, something that many talk about but few have seen. It’s a good thing for that, too, because he’ll need that element of surprise to protect her. Hopefully when the dust settles, he’ll be able to resurrect more than just himself.

Mind blown! Seriously, completely and utterly blown away! First, Lani Lynn Vale was killing us with the suspense around Ghost’s identity – which I’m not even hinting at, btw, believe me you’ll thank me for hanging onto every word until it’s revealed, like I did -, and now, she totally and utterly KILLED IT with Ghost’s story!!!
Since the very first book of the Dixie Wardens Rejects, we all been dying to know and read Ghost’s story, so much so that ended up as origin and speculation in endless threads on media. Beard Up became of the most anticipated Release of the year, and undoubtedly of all of LLV’s books.
Well, I can honestly say all the anticipation and built up were surpassed by the book, and specially the main couple. I never thought it would be possible to come up with a explanation for Ghost’s decision where I would completely forgive him, but damn, Lani sure proved me wrong, because I was rendered speechless. Completely understandable and without another choice, no one would have chosen the alternative, so I hurt for him, as much as for his wife and child.
His wife’s reaction was another of the highlights, totally unexpected, and so humanly realistic, I cried right along with her, and felt what she felt.
“I made a promise to myself a long time ago,” she said, her voice heavy with grief. “To God. To anyone that would listen.”
I swallowed thickly, not sure that I wanted to hear what she had to say.
“That if I ever got another chance…if you came back to me some way, that I wouldn’t squander it. I wouldn’t scream. I wouldn’t yell. I wouldn’t question. I wouldn’t hate. I’d love you. I’d love you for every single second that you were gone. I’d hug you. Kiss you. Never let go.”
More of a surprising, honest and heartfelt explanation I couldn’t have asked for. Their reunion brought simultaneously to tear and smiles, and heart as full as the MCs themselves. I adored every devoted word, every caring gesture and loving feelings. Beard Up was one of the most realistic and truly heartfelt stories I’ve ever read. This married couple’s love and devotion made me fall in love all over again, not only with Lani Lynn Vale’s writing, but with all Romance all over again! Top Three best reads of the year and fav LLV of all time! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
My heart was full.
I had the love of my life in my arms, and our kids in our bed. My club—both of them—at my back.
It was a long, painful road back to this point. I’d never take any of this for granted because life just didn’t get any better than this.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
