Bearded mode is the first book in new series from Lani Lynn Vale. HOORRAY! A somewhat new group of phenomenal characters to keep us hooked for the foreseeable future and a lot of possibilities for amazing adventures with them.
Aaron, first appeared in the Kilgore fire series, where he suffered greatly but since his story didn’t get a clean ending I was really curious what happened to him and was waiting for his story ever since. Well he got a new beginning with a more agreeable ending. After everything that happened to him he doesn’t really feels like himself anymore or like the himself everybody else knows in Kilgore so he goes back to where he grew up. Partially to escape the memories and partially to start afresh. Luckily the story starts when he is mostly over his tragic past and it doesn’t really shows the dark, struggling part of it. He falls for Imogen and their story is simply hilarious.
Imogen character is brilliant; she is badass, hard working and not really the usual female main character used to from the author. She is not so soft but I liked her maybe even better her for it.
Their relationship starts out slow because of Aaron reluctance to start something with another woman after how badly he been burned several times in the past. They start out as friend but they have so strong chemistry that they can’t deny it for long.
There is a lot of twist and surprises in the plot and it’ exciting. This one is really well balanced regarding action and romance. The writing style is great the story has a great pace. I enjoyed it immensely. The character development is executed beautifully and there are a lot of little snippets, hints in the books that makes me extremely excited for the other characters books.
Lani Lynn Vale is creating better and better stories by every book. I simply love her stories and can recommend it to anyone.
