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 her 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.
Beard Mode was a great 5 star read.
Aaron has just become a member of the Dixie Warden Rejects MC and is also a medic at the prison. Something happened to him that has scarred him for life and has steered him away from women and commitment Then he meets Imogen and he is instantly attracted to her, she is also his neighbor.
I would chew her up and spit her out.
Imogen took her nephew to see his dad in prison which is where she meets Aaron for the first time We quickly discover that Imogen isn’t the luckiest person, she seems to always have things happening to her. Plus she is working to support her mother and nephew while her sister is deployed.
The man was sexy. Scarred, yes, but sexy beyond belief.
As fate would have it, Imogen and Aaron always seem to be running into each other. Aaron can’t stop thinking about Imogen and she has also noticed how hot he looks on his bike.
Will Aaron be able to get past his trust issues? Will Imogen let her hair down and enjoy her hot neighbor?
I had some LOL moments, especially when Imogen shared how she discovered she was allergic to latex. There are some other situations that are sad and heartbreaking. You get it all in this great read, hot sex scenes, LOL moments, heart stopping moments and teary eyed moments. I didn’t like how hard Aaron was on himself. Imogen was a very strong woman and was the perfect fit for Aaron she knew how to push his buttons and banter with him. I also enjoyed the secondary characters they added a great element to the story. Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed the epilogue. I am looking forward to reading more from this series.
