SON OF BEARD
Series: The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC #3
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
Truth Alan Reacher was a biker. He was a bladesmith. What he was not, was a fool.
The moment he walked in on his girl screwing his cousin on his bike, he does the only thing he can do.
He ditches the bike seat—and the girl—riding right out of her life without a backwards glance.
That is until he’s forced to attend the marriage of his cousin to his cheating ex-girlfriend. The only bright spot of the entire thing was watching some chick go off on the groom—the groom’s ex-fiancé—right in the middle of the bouquet toss.
Verity Ruthann Cassidy was supposed to be here today attending this wedding as the bride, not watching the festivities as a guest from the chairs she’d painstakingly purchased covers for while her fiancé—now her ex-fiancé—screwed around on her with another woman.
The icing on the wedding cake that she refuses to eat? She’s forced to attend the wedding due to her mother being the wedding planner.
However, the night doesn’t turn out quite the way she expects it due to the hot-as-hell biker sitting in the chair directly beside her. The man gave one hell of a speech during the reception that sounded like something that could have come straight out of her own mouth, and she enjoyed every single second of it.
Thrown together under similarly lousy circumstances, the two newly single jilted former lovers of the happy couple decide to go to Vegas on what was to be Verity’s honeymoon trip.
One thing leads to another, and the next thing they know, their night has gone from a celebration of being single to a marriage—to each other.
Verity and Truth now have to figure out if everything that happens in Vegas should stay in Vegas.

“One man’s used up slut is another man’s brand new bride.”
Is this or is this not one of the best opening lines EVAH?! Best best-man speech ever!!! LMFAO
Lani Lynn Vale sure gave us one hell of a ride with Son of a Beard!!! Of course with a tricky premise like this one, it was set to be one surprising story, and that it was!
Truth caught the surprise of a lifetime when he arrived home and caught his live in ‘girlfriend’ screwing his cousin on his bike. Mind you, his shock and rage wasn’t for the woman herself but for his bike! That says all about their ‘relationship’ and what she meant to him. The desecration of his precious bike was the big issue!
My bike meant the world to me, and I hadn’t been able to sit on it without thinking about them since then.
Verity’s situation with her cheating fiancée (the one caught screwing Truth’s girlfriend) was even worse, specially with the way she was confronted by the situation. Poor woman.
But well there is always a silver lining, and theirs is their meeting in the wedding from hell. And a second one, that EPIC best man speech!
And boy, oh boy was that a meeting, the attraction was immediate and they sure took advantage of the crappy situation they were on. Their bodies demanded it so!
I wasn’t normally so slutty, but hell, if you saw this man, you’d have jumped at the chance to do him, too!
Of drunken trip to Las Vegas and their life would never be the same!
Truth was the very personification of hermit, all he wanted was his life of solitude with his blacksmith trade but when fate again brought Verity to his doorstep, she ended up blowing that all away.
I’m with her, what is so damn sexy about a sweaty hot man pounding metal to submission? I don’t know, but I totally got her. Irresistible!!!
“Bladesmith,” he muttered, still not taking his eyes off of what he was hammering. “Different set of training, and different set of skills are required to do the two.”
He was just as intrigued by her, with her proper facade, but out of the boy personality. Verity was everything he craved and never dreamt he wanted.
God, she sounded so prim and proper that I wanted to strip the pants from her lower half and fuck that proper right out of her.
And rock her world he did, but definitely not as much as she rocked his. They were the perfect match, and sarcastic, witty and sassy lines between them, more than prove it.
“You don’t have any time for you?” he tilted his head to study me.
He was now leaning against my GG’s china cabinet, and I realized how out of place he looked in front of it.
“That’s good news, I guess,” he drawled.
LOL, this sure was one of Lani’s most hilarious couple. Verity really brought Truth’s best features to light, and I loved every single second of it!
“Didn’t realize you let women fight your battles, Son.” Truth’s father backed away, taking a hold of his wife’s arm. “Though I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that you can’t handle your business.”
“I can handle my business,” Truth said, leaning back into his chair. “It’s just sexier when she does it for me.”
Don’t get me wrong, Truth isn’t by any means perfect. There was one moment there when he was trying to push her away, that he said some horrible things to Verity – even though he had his reason for it – so bad that I wanted to nut punch him, but after a away she could see way he had done it, and ended up fighting for him. I wish it had been him taking the first step (ok, he tried) for their reconciliation, but it also proved to us what a strong and intelligent woman she is.
Certainly all the HOT sex had something to do with her fast forgiveness, I’m sure. These two were explosive together!
“You feel so fucking good, baby. Like a dream,” I rasped, sweeping my lips up the line of her jaw.
It was incredible to revisit all the previous couples, and their women insight on their men really was spot on. Perfect description for these Dixie Wardens Rejects MC men!
“But there’s this thing about the man you love,” she whispered, not caring that the man she loved was standing at her back, listening to every word. “They can drive you insane, but at the end of the night, when you’re in their arms, everything that was wrong with that day ceases to exist.”
Son of a Beard really was a kick ass ride. Action packed, hilarious ROFL moments and amazing character and relationship development from start to finish. Lani Lynn Vale never let’s us down (ok, maybe a little, because I NEED to know Ghost’s identity!!!), and this book and series is yet another proof of her immense talented in creating unforgettable stories. Can’t wait for Jessie James story! Actually I want ALL of the rest of the gang’s books like, yesterday!!! <3 <3 <3 <3
“I trust you completely, Truth. With my heart and with my body,” she whispered. “You’re a good man.”
But, most of all, I loved how he loved me. Without limits. He didn’t care that anyone thought he was whipped or too attentive to me. He only cared about what he and I thought, and that was everything.
