Publisher's Summary

Aaron "don't ever call me Fatbaby" Sims is lucky to be alive. Or at least that is what everyone keeps telling him. He doesn't feel lucky, though.

He's scarred, has more than a little bit of a bad attitude, and there isn't a single day that goes by that he doesn't wish his wife would've just finished off the job.

After being denied his old position at the fire department, he leaves, and doesn't look back. He heads straight to Alabama and into the semi-welcoming arms of The Dixie Wardens MC. There he becomes a part of a brotherhood that forces him to get back in the land of the living.

Imogen is a smart girl. A girl who doesn't always make the best decisions.

Her heart is in the right place when she walks into that prison, but it doesn't take long for her to realize that her heart shouldn't have had any say so in the matter. Especially when one wrong move lands her in the arms of a scarred man that looks frightening enough to scare any sane woman away.

Immediately enthralled by the angry man, she tries to get closer to him. But the harder she tries to get to know him, the further he pushes her away.

The only thing Aaron wanted to do after his now ex-wife was sent to jail was escape. Escape the awful memories. The pity-filled eyes. The curious glances.

He does a damn fine job at ensuring he draws as little as attention as possible, but then that annoying woman with startling blue eyes starts hammering away at his resolve. Makes him feel when he doesn't want to feel.

Imogen comes into his life and carves out a place for herself, obliterating his defenses one heated kiss at a time.

Contains mature themes.

Different kind of MC

This audiobook was certainly not about 1%ers or criminal like MCs. The hero is a former Marine who suffered terrible burns after returning to the US when his crazy wife hit him with her car when he was driving his truck. Disillusioned by women and his felling rejected because of his appearance, he moves back to his mothers house and joins the local MC club. While getting a classic car restored he meets the woman he just saw at the jail after she was injured by her brother-in-law who is a prisoner and gave first aid to her. They start to see each other and his heart begins to open again. The story was entertaining and narration was well done.

Part of the book feels missing

There was a part in the book where it felt like she had a plot then changed her mind but didn't what she had before

Scars are only skin deep

To truly love someone you have to love them from the inside out... the outer package isn't the most important. Imogen sees the man within and past the scars. This is a nice story. We all know these romance books are going to have a happily ever after, but getting there was a good journey in this book.

Love Mason Lloyd

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is a very good story and narration of this book

What did you like best about this story?

I love this author!! And she picked great narrators because a narrator can make or break a book you love.

What about Mason Lloyd and Kendall Taylor ’s performance did you like?

Love Mason Lloyd's voice and love that you can tell the emotions of the characters as well as who is talking by the different voices. I feel the same way about Kendall Taylor but I will say it took me a little bit to get use to her voice but I ended up loving it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I just loved how accepting Imogen was of Aaron and his scare. Showing that it isn't just about the outside but the inside of a person.

Any additional comments?

Love Lani Lynn Vale and her choice for narrators.

A Good Listen, Made Me Laugh

I really enjoyed Beard Mode. Both characters were relatable and funny. I found myself a couple of times just giggling out loud to some funny aside uttered by the character.

The romance aspect was nice too. You could really feel the attraction and personality match between Aaron and Imogen. The raunchy scenes were good without being corny or trying too hard to be "hot".

I liked how blunt Imogen is when things start getting hot between her and Aaron, how she tells him she will get attached and warns him of her clinginess. I liked how Aaron's painful history with his ex didn't turn him bitter.

Overall, it's a good book and I recommend it.

Freaking Brillent

I've read all of Lani's books & now I'm collecting the Audio books , Bead Mode had me crying all over again at the sad sad spot with Stone , big tears falling ....... But that doesn't deture from the great story just adds to it ... Aaron & Imagon what a way to finally get together , it's one of my favs in this Series .. I hope every single book she's written goes on Audio .. .. One that should not be missed .. One Click , you won't be Dissappointed .
