Truth or Beard by Penny Reid Winston Brothers #1 Publication Date: July 23, 2015 Genres: Contemporary, Humor, Romance
Beards, brothers, and bikers! Oh my!Identical twins Beau and Duane Winston might share the same devastatingly handsome face, but where Beau is outgoing and sociable, Duane is broody and reserved. This is why Jessica James, recent college graduate and perpetual level headed good girl, has been in naïve and unhealthy infatuation with Beau Winston for most of her life. His friendly smiles make her tongue-tied and weak-kneed, and she’s never been able to move beyond her childhood crush. Whereas Duane and Jessica have always been adversaries. She can’t stand him, and she’s pretty sure he can’t stand the sight of her… But after a case of mistaken identity, Jessica finds herself in a massive confusion kerfuffle. Jessica James has spent her whole life paralyzed by the fantasy of Beau and her assumptions of Duane’s disdain; therefore she’s unprepared for the reality that is Duane’s insatiable interest, as well as his hot hands and hot mouth and hotter looks. Not helping Jessica’s muddled mind and good girl sensibilities, Duane seems to have gotten himself in trouble with the local biker gang, the Iron Order. Certainly, Beau’s magic spell is broken. Yet when Jessica finds herself drawn to the man who was always her adversary, now more dangerous than ever, how much of her level-head heart is she willing to risk?

With each Penny Reid book I fall in love with each of the the characters and their stories and Truth or Beard is no exception. I have anxiously awaited the beginning of the Winston Brother's books and declare Duane my favorite...for now. Jessica met her match with Duane and with a little help from all those Winston brothers, fell in love with the perfect guy. Duane and Jessica's story is funny, full of romance and contains all things Winston. Penny does such a fabulous job of making each brother's personality distinct, making you fall in love with each one for entirely different reasons. These bearded men are intelligent, have hearts of gold and apparently magic.... hands ;). Just in case you missed it, you can check out my interview with all those crazy Winston brothers here.
