Amy's 5 star ARC Review of Beard Up (The Dixie Warden Rejects Book 6) by Lani Lynn Vale

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.

Ghost - something that cannot be seen but you feel his presence. Until you read this story you really don't have any idea what that simple word means. It will explode into something bigger, more fierce, loyal and a greater love than you ever imagined. 

We as readers are bound to secrecy, but what I can tell you is that this is a story you do not want to miss. I had to re-read several pages because my jaw dropped - heart missed a few beats and my words were "no it can't be." 

I could not have loved a storyline more. This is one of my favorites that I certainly will read again. Absolutely brilliant. Standing ovation and the cover is spot on. Thank you Lani! You outdid yourself on this release. 

Thank you for the chance to read.
