Publisher's Summary

Omega looking for alpha for...unusual request. Must be physically impressive. Please inquire for further details.

Christian Kelley is down on his luck - big time. After moving to Las Vegas in the hopes of becoming an entertainer, he’s been met with nothing but rejection, so when a friend suggests he sign up with Rent-a-Dom as a service provider, he’s eager to give it a shot. While more naturally submissive than dominant, Christian is sure he can pull off the act well enough...at least, until the founder of Rent-a-Dom himself contacts him with an unusual proposal, and his world turns upside down. 

Monty Mills, the mysterious founder of Rent-a-Dom, has a problem he can’t fix. With Rent-a-Dom’s fifth year anniversary on the horizon, he sees potential for exposure like never before. The problem? He’ll risk Rent-a-Dom’s credibility if he shows his face in public. What he needs is a beard - someone who can make the world think he’s someone he’s not.

Someone like Christian Kelley.

Sparks fly when Monty and Christian meet, but with Monty’s business riding on their success, and Christian’s future hinged on this performance, love isn’t on the agenda. Is it?

This final installment in the Rent-a-Dom series contains mpreg, D/s elements, and is intended for 18+ listeners. 

Warning: Don't listen unless you like fun books with mysterious and powerful omega Doms, bubble bath disasters, rugged, secretly pierced alphas who long to submit, and scenes that’ll make Vegas temperatures cool in comparison. But then again, this is a Susi Hawke and Piper Scott collaboration - you already knew to expect that, didn’t you?

Took me a while to warm up to Monty

This book was well written, with great sexy scenes as well as humor and some angst. I had a really difficult time with omega dom Monty, though, and I kept wondering why Christian was falling so hard for him. I eventually warmed up to Monty, but that didn't happen until he found out he was pregnant. At that point, his outlook changed, which made my opinion of him change as well. The narrator, who is one of my favorites, gave a fantastic performance. This series is not my favorite from these authors, but the books are entertaining. Anyone who has enjoyed this series will no doubt appreciate this addition.

So enjoyed this!

Somehow I missed reading this book so when it came out in audio it was a no brainer. Really enjoyed the story of Christian and Monty. From steamy encounters to laugh out loud moments this is an entertaining book. Nick Russo’s narration is great. As always Susi and Piper don’t disappoint!

Hate to See the Series End

Monty, the slightly paranoid head of Rent-a-Dom, is looking for a Beard, an Alpha who will play him in public, to keep his Omega status a secret from his business contacts and Las Vegas as a whole. Christian, a performer who hasn't had any luck finding jobs where he can act, follows his friends advice and applies for Rent-a-Dom. When Monty contacts Christian for an acting gig that will set him up nicely financially, he doesn't even have to think twice about it! While teaching Christian how to be Monty, the two grow close; but can Monty over come his insecurities and trust Christian?
This entire series has been such a ride and this story is no different. Monty, someone you've met briefly in previous stories, finally gets his happily ever after, and it Christian is such a perfect guy for him, having not only the patience to get to know him in the beginning but also the strength to push at times when he needs to. Its nice to see both sides in, not only one, but both characters. In addition to Christian and Monty, you get to see other characters from previous stories (Toby & Thorne from Daddy Wanted, and Robin from Master Wanted) and get a look at their life a little later in the timeline.
Nick J Russo did such an amazing job with not only this book, but the entire series! While each character is similar (as there are only so many voices one man can make), he does a good job giving them their own unique feeling with tone and inflection. This is one series that I have listened to several times, and this book in particular will be one I listen to again and again!

Good narrator and cute story

I love what the narrator did with the voices, it was perfect and cute at the same time. Hard to find a good story with a perfect voice, but this series is awesome both ways.

I loved the story, Monty and Christian were totally cute together, i loved their relationship and what they did together.
The pregnancy was super, i laughed hard, everything was good and lovely.

This is the way how every mpreg/audio must look like, i love it and definitely will re-listen it!

Great Series

I received an ARC of this audio for my honest review. I have really enjoyed this series. This audio is steamy, fun and interesting. This is the first of this series that I listened to the story instead of reading it myself. I enjoyed listening to Nick Russo narrate this story. Great job.

Nice ending to the series

Nick Russo brought these guys to life with his narration. I’ve always liked the deepness of his voice. It fit these characters perfectly.

Monty runs his company, Rent-A-Dom, with total control. As a Dom he doesn’t think his business could withstand the news that he is an Omega. He concocts a plan to present a more suitable person as the face of the company. When he finds Christian, he believes he has the perfect candidate. As the training begins, both men realize there is so much more to their relationship than boss and employee, but the road to always does have a few bumps.

The switch in traditional roles, the Omega in control and the Alpha the sub, was nicely done. Both characters were vulnerable but had such strength. I enjoyed getting to know them both. Their story was very sweet and a fitting end to the series.

The Full Monty? Or being true to yourself?

I do enjoy Nick J Russo's audios and he's definitely one of my top 20 favourite narrators (yes, I do have a list! LOL)
I've very much enjoyed this Rent-a-Dom series by the very talented Susi Hawke & Piper Scott, so it was bittersweet that this is the final book in this series.
Monty is rightfully proud of the success he has made of the business he started with Robin before their mother got ill, but his personal life is virtually non-existent. He wants to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of Rent-A-Dom with a special party, but he is afraid to be the public face of the company as he's been so used to concealing the fact that he's an omega. He turns to Christian, his newest hire to pretend to be him for the party, so they have just over 6 months to prepare as the wannabe actor takes on the role of a lifetime...I love how this develops as Monty gets over himself and they become a true partnership with babies bringing them into their true lifetime roles.

My favorite in the series!

Monty was a bit enigmatic and I wasn't certain what to make of him. It actually took me a few chapters to warm up to him and start liking him, but once I did it wasn't long until I fell in love with him. He was a rare type of Omega, a dominant one and yet, it was nice to see that he was willing to give into Christian every once in a while. Christian, on the other hand, was the perfect book boyfriend. Protective, supportive and willing to do anything and everything for the man he loved. Do you think we could clone him? LOL

Nick J. Russo did an outstanding job, as always. He captured Monte and Christian's essence and brought it forth in his narration. Of course, it doesn't hurt listening to the hotness that was Monte and Christian together in his sexy tenor. ;)

All in all, this was a fantastic audiobook! Hot, sexy, and did I mention, hot? Ms. Hawke and Ms. Scott are an amazing writing team and I can't get enough of their books, and Beard Wanted is not the exception. Highly recommendable!

Wonderful End to this Series, NJR is Perfect!

The fourth in Susi Hawke’s Rent-a-Dom books, Beard Wanted is a wonderful end to this series. Monty gets his man and what a perfect combination these two make! As with the other books in this series, Nick J. Russo finds what makes each character unique and delivers a smooth, sexy, and charming performance.

I think my favorite part of a Susi Hawke romance is the unique relationships she creates. In Beard Wanted we get Christian, a submissive Alpha (who just needs a little encouragement to switch it up), and the dommy omega Monty. Monty’s charisma has been present throughout the series and I was wondering how Ms. Hawke was going to give him his perfect mate… well let’s just say I’m very happy right now *wink*.

This has been a fantastic series made even better with Nick J. Russo’s wonderful performance. Definitely enjoy this one in audio!

So hot and sweet

I loved this whole series but I think that this one was my favourite.
I can't believe that this was the last Rent-a-Dom book that these two talented authors would be writing and we would be getting to listen to.
In this instalment Rent-a-Dom is coming up to its 5 years anniversary and the company founder and CEO Month needs someone to be him for the very public apperance, someone like Christian. The pair start to work together, learning all about each other and what they each needs.and have laughs together. The heat between the pair leaps from the pages.and is so hot it's scorching. I loved the party scenes even if one is stolen by a certain Chihuahua.
All in all a very fitting book to finish the series on but I like so many fans would love more.

The mysterious founder of Ren-a-Dom...

Monty is the omega in charge of Rent-a-Dom. How difficult will he have it if he goes public? He hires Christian to impersonate him and when getting to know each other, they really get to know each other. I enjoyed the hard working omega who likes to dom and a rugged alpha who doesn’t mind submitting. I loved Christian reaction to the mpreg and their little surprise. He’s so sweet. It’s a nice wrap up on the series 👍🏼.
Mr Russo has a nice voice. The narration was on point, specially the sexy scenes.

An interesting spin

In this conclusion to the Rent-A-Dom series, we FINALLY meet Monty. Hawke & Scott have masterfully again written a great story. I found the characters likable and entertaining, the plot engaging and a lovely surprise with characters from the previous books “popping” in. Russo’s narration was soothing and often times I felt myself drifting off into the story. Other times Russo’s narration gave way to bringing the characters to life. A nice finish to an interesting series.

Sweet and Spicy

I’m sorry this series has ended but it goes out on a high. Monty gets his story. He is the founder of Rent-A-Dom. He decides he needs a cover for the 5th Anniversary of his company. Christian is the Alpha he chooses to impersonate him at I love Christian he is a sweet gentle Alpha. When Monty and Christian get together they are hot and fit together so well. Sweet and spicy. It’s only a matter of time before Monty becomes pregnant. The story is a different take on needing a beard and it works so well. The party scene is excellent.
I know I’m on to a good audiobook when it’s narrated by Nick Russo. He takes care with the characterisation and performance so that the story feels vivid.
