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.
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-headed heart is she willing to risk?

review v2


And i’m married and absolutely captivated with the rest of the Winston clan. This 6 gorgeous bearded attractive brothers are absolutely impossible to resist! I’m gonna start with the hero this time, Duane. There has to be other words, stronger ones that can expresses just how deeply in love i am with this hero. So we first met him in Beauty and The Mustache (Knitting in the City, #4) but we met him as a brother, here we get inside his heart and mind and met him as A MAN IN LOVE. And fuck me! how he loves. Duane is twin with Beau, they are the only pair of twins in the Winston clan. Their relationship is absolutely adorable, it makes me want to be a twin. The relationship between the family, the brotherhood is so precious, it made my heart feel full. So our heroine here Jessica, has a long-time childhood crush on Beau (the happy and smiley twin) while she thinks she has always ”hated” the serious broody twin Duane. As kids she spent more time with Duane than with Beau, fighting and teasing each other and that was actually their chemistry. One night there is a mistaken identity hot chaos and that is when things get all shaken up and while at it Jessica realize that the twin she had always liked was Duane. Meanwhile Duane was already in love with her! since they were kids. SWEET JESUS I CANT EVEN AT THE SWEETNESS AND PASSION of Duane towards Jessica I JUST CANT.

”Jessica,” he whispered, ”arguing with you is one of my favorite things to do.”

One of the things i love most about Duane was his love for cars and racing, that made the character feel so genuine. I love Jessica, she is a free spirit math teacher with a dream of traveling around the world but her wonderlust brought some problems with her relationship with Duane. She was so funny and she didn’t question her love for Duane, i mean once she realized she was in love with him, that was it! she loved him and nothing was going to change that, she was just as passionate as Duane!

”I sucked in a shuddering breath, my eyes flying open, and I stared at my beautiful man. He was so… everything. So sweet and handsome and passionate. So wonderful and kind and… I was so desperately in love with everything about him.”

See! they were both just so everything, like seriously i was swooning one minute and then a sobbing mess the next!

”Jessica, I’ve been thinking about making love to you for a real long time. And I won’t settle for our first encounter being rushed— on a blanket outside, in a car, before dinner in my bedroom at home. I plan on taking my time with you…”

And then the in the middle of swooning or sobbing, i was just laughing or squealing and their adorableness! Right now Duane tops as my fave Winston brother but is hard to choose between them. All the Winston boys are simply hilarious, sweet and hot. I’m craving for more as i write this review and i’m happy to know that Jethro’s story is the next one! SAYING THAT I’M EXCITED WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT!  Penny Reid is a GENIUS! humor, and romance combined at its finest and even action and drama all so flawlessly written! is pure perfection is like a perfect bookworm treasure. Definitely a must read in 2015 and FOREVER. This book (and the next and the next) doesn’t fail in any department, even the love scenes were incredibly sweet and passionate, totally arousing. Seriously if you are not into bearded country man this will totally change your mind. READ THIS BOOK. Meet the Winston brothers, you wont regret this.

Grin and Beard It Winston Brothers Book #2 COMING IN 2016

Synopsis: Sienna Foster is everyone’s favorite “fat” funny lady. The movie studio executives can’t explain it, but her films are out-grossing all the fit and trim headliners and Hollywood’s most beautiful elite. The simple truth is, everyone loves plus-sized Sienna. But she has a problem, she can’t read maps and her sense of direction is almost as bad as her comedic timing is stellar. Therefore, when Sienna’s latest starring role takes her to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park she finds herself continually lost while trying to navigate the backroads of Green Valley, Tennessee. Much to her consternation, Sienna’s most frequent savior is a ridiculously handsome, charming, and cheeky Park Ranger by the name of Jethro Winston. Sienna is accustomed to high levels of man-handsome, so it’s not Jethro’s chiseled features or his perfect physique that make Sienna stutter. It’s his southern charm. And gentlemanly manners. And habit of looking at her too long and too often. Sienna has successfully navigated the labyrinth of Hollywood heart-throbs. But can she traverse the tenuous trails of Tennessee without losing her head? Or worse, her heart?
