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.
Beard Up is book six in The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC and it blew me away! I have been so curious about Ghost because he was the most secretive. He was so dark and mysterious, and I couldn’t believe his story once I started.
Ghost has quite a past. He had to “die” to protect his family. So many secrets with his cruel and powerful parents that he felt the only way to keep them alive is to protect them by disappearing and faking his death.
After keeping a close watch on his wife and daughter for years, and having his friends keep an eye on them, he finds out they are in more danger than he first thought. He does the only thing he knows to do and that is to bring them home. Little do they know that he’s not the same man they once knew.
The more he sees his family, the more he knows he wants them back. But, is he willing to endanger them again? I wasn’t sure what would happen next, and I was anxious to see what was he was going to do.
I am not revealing anything else because this book is quite a shocker. It’s full of suspense and action, but a true second chance romance. Ghost is hot and sexy, and I love seeing him open up to his wife and daughter again by trying to be the man they remember. He’s tough and badass, but so tender and sweet with them. I have loved every book in this series, but I think this is my favorite. I was anxiously awaiting Ghost’s book, and it is well worth the wait! Lani’s writing continues to impress me because you can’t help but love the characters in each book, and I look forward to more of this MC after reading this 4.5 star book!
