    5 STARS Truth or Beard has easily made it’s way to my top favorites of 2015 It’s one of those books that really had it all It’s smart witty sweet original sexy fun and the writing is fantastic The characters are so lovable and great Really I couldn’t have asked for in a book As soon as I finished reading I was craving from this series I can’t wait to read about the other Winston brothersThis is the story of Jess and Duane Duane has an identical twin brother named Beau Beau has always been the nice twin the twin people like The twin Jess has crushed on most of her life But as much as Duane and she have butt heads he’s always carried a torch for her She disliked me But she worshipped my brother He didn’t see her not really Not like I did I was always running after her but this time I wasn’t going to let her get away 
I truly loved the relationship between Jess and Duane They started as that couple that could hardly stand each other and then it clicked Things changed They couldn’t stay away from each other These are really my favorite type of reads They bicker and can’t stand each other then realize they are perfect for one another Seriously SO great Everything seems so perfect for the two of them but there are a few other factors that make things in their relationship interesting Like the fact that Jess has big plans to travel the world and Duane is settled and happy in small town Tennessee Add in some drama with the local MC club and you’ll see a relationship that isn’t easy Their love isn’t easy but it is a love worth fighting for Love is the greatest adventure where you risk the most for the greatest reward Not only were Duane and Jess fantastic characters but I loved Duane’s brothers as well Especially Cletus He was a hoot I can’t wait to get of this group and even though this can be read as a standalone I still have one lingering uestion I hope will be answered later in the series view spoiler Regarding Jess’s biological dad I think it’s fairly obvious he’s the guy from the MC but I want to know about that hide spoiler

    4 45 StarsOh my facial hair Batman How delightful was this little book of chin curtains? rhetorical uestion alertLOLZSo obviously I wasted dedicated entirely too much time and had way too much fun surfing through the plenitude of wicked awesome beard memes available on the interwebs Either that or I have an unnatural and slightly creepy interest in Abraham LincolnBut I digressAnystache this is how you feel when reading Penny Reid You're having So Much FunI mean just look at that guy Whip his Nae Nae And you are getting in some good exercise Some brain exercise that is And by this I don't mean that my brain has to work harder to read a Reid bookbut rather I am reminded that my brain actually does work pretty damn well and that it really can comprehend words bigger and complicated than Oh yeah baby harder and pssy In theory Now with the same breath I used to explain that little nugget of brain efficiency I will now also endeavor to contradict it completelyBecause the ONLY reason I didn't give this book a full 5 stars is because I wanted a little Oh yeah baby harder and pssy sprinkled in with my goatee flavored witticisms Beard with meI don't always need some snap with my crackleOh wait yes I do Especially when the two main characters have as much chemistry as Jessica and her bearded hunk of man sexy But anyflavorsaver aside from this book's smarty pants ensemble did I mention hilarious? Because HILARIOUSLike people giving you weird looks as you laugh randomly to yourself in public hilarious But above the hilarity and even than the jazzercise is the writing itself Penny Reid is just an amazing writer I love her prose her flow and simply put her styleEveryone has certain writing styles that crank their tractor than others And Penny Reid is my John Deere Can't wait for book two

    I've been meaning to get around to this series for uite a long time Finally I downloaded the audiobook and decided to find out what all the fuss was about surrounding these bearded brothers I wasn't disappointedIn the first book in the series readerslisteners are introduced to the Winston brothers Listening to the Audible version I couldn't help but envision the men from the 'Duck Dynasty'which wasn't exactly sexy However with time I was able to overcome that and mold the brothers into sexier versions of bearded bliss Despite being rather over the top at times each of the brothers stood out as being uniue and loveable They were definitely a uirky bunch but very endearing I think they might be my latest guilty pleasureJessica James is the leading female character in this first book in the series She is dying to get out and see the world but her plans have been temporarily derailed She's returned to her hometown to earn enough money to pay off her student loans so that she can travel the world Long term relationships or any other commitment that would tie her down are not in her plansWhen she runs into the object of all her young fantasies Beau Winston she acts in an uncharacteristically passionate way Nobody is surprised than her to discover that her impromptu make out session was actually with Beau's twin brother Duane her childhood nemesis She certainly wasn't prepared for the jealousy and longing that she felt toward her one time rival I enjoyed the progression of Duane and Jessica's story from stand offish to inseparable This was a sweet heart warming kind of story I smiled and laughed at the personality uirks of the various characters throughout this story There was just enough action and mystery to keep me engaged as wellEventually everything works itself out We get the HEA that we craved and are left feeling contented This story can easily be read as a standalone even though it is the first book in the seriesIf you're in the mood for a sweet humorous feel good type of love story then this is a great choice I can see why so many of my friends have fallen in love with the Winston brothers I will definitely continue this series I look forward to seeing what the other brothers have in store for meCheck out of my reviews at wwwbookaddicthavencom

    FIVE WINSTON STARS Beards brothers and bikers Oh my I'm not convinced I have the right words to summarise how I feel about this book I've said it before and I'll say it again; Penny Reid is a complete word genius and I don't think there is any review that I can throw together that would give this author's talent justice Full of originality and fabulous narrative this English book addict willingly got carried away by this gorgeous tale set in a small stateside town Now begins the painful yes torturous wait for from the Winston brothers I'm already in love with this series and I'm sure you'll soon be just as addicted as I amWhat's it all about?For Jessica James having a long life crush on the one man who can make her knees go weak can be problematic especially when she has never had the chance to show how she really feels It doesn't help matters when the object of her affections has a set of bearded brothers who have never seen eye to eye with her law enforcing family Add into the mix a chance meeting of mistaken identity a local MC club one passionate encounter and a desire to leave the small town that she has grown up with and you have yourself one romantic story that leads to the best kind of happily ever afters Jump headfirst into this bearded romantic soirée and not only fall in love with this heroines journey of finding her soul mate but be prepared to fall in love with a set of unforgettable brothers What did I love?In addition to having a story line that I was able to fully enjoy and appreciate I also happily adored the romance of this story I laughed I cried I wanted to hug the characters I also may have wanted to strangle them on occasion and ultimately I fell head first into book and hero love Everything and I mean everything including all the full stops chapter uotes heroine hero beards bad buys apple pies small town gossip cute American references family dinners need me to go on? Ok I'll stop all made this book an absolute winner Every single one of the twenty nine chapters led me happily into the five star rating zone and I knew from the start that I would have zero complaints about this hero who won over my heart and landed himself straight into my favourite lists From steamy start to heart warming finish this novel appealed to my romance addiction and I couldn't call out one thing that didn't have me dying to spend time with Penny Reid and her imagination put to paper Final thoughts If you are looking for a romance novel with a uirky feel to it that will sweep you away and at the same time give you a healthy vocabulary lesson then you have come to the right place Penny Reid combines all that I love about reading a loved up novel and gives it an original intelligent twist The characters storyline and swoon factor are all on point and I'm desperate to discover about the Winston brothers and the possibility of them all finding their own happily ever after Brilliant plot simmering chemistry and Duane Winston made for one perfect reading combination Bring on the re read Enjoy readers kisses ARC generously provided by Penny Reid to read and review as a guest reviewer for 'Reading is sexy book blog'

    45 Finding Your Siren's Song 12 Spoiler Free and Are You Kidding Me RIGHT NOW FREE YES NO COSTWarningDisclaimer It is important to note when reading this review it was written by a reader who has great affection for the past works of the author It has been stated in past reviews but for complete transparency it is repeated hereThere I have covered my assI happen to love the way Penny Reid thinks and writes She takes ideas fleshes them out gives them life and then adds her Secret Sauce Secret Sauce you say What the hell does that meanWell it means if I were even to attempt to do a poor man's imitation of her style I would have to do the followingCreate a female character who has a very distinct personality One who is natural in her intelligence and beauty; open in her curiosity and unassuming in her looks She would dance to the beat of a different of a drum; highlighting her uniue take on everyday things She would be accomplished in whatever career she was in; however there would be to her then what she doesit would be who she is or what she feels may be missing in her life which would be the crux of the matter She would not always take things seriously and have a great sense of humor but she would see things with a discerning eye and be the one to look to if another opinion was needed In other words she would be very special and others would see it even if she didn'tI would need a strong focused manOne who had past issues of some kind but not the violent or nonredeemable He would have all of the physical attributes a woman would wantBeautiful eyes which resemble some of nature's perfection a chiseled face which could be on any billboard possible dimples or cheekbones to wish for or a delicious beard to tug There would be broad shoulders long legs and a muscular chest with a happy trail pointing in the heavenly direction of the promised land sorry I got carried away in my mind's eye You get the idea the man could stop traffic But he was not just eye candy He would have a sly sense of humor which worked perfectly with the woman he pined for they would both have active minds and the banter would snap and crackle with undercurrents of amazing sexual needBut the best the most important part of this man would be his heart; his inner workings of what he thought was rightjustand righteous in his path of living He would see the person he desired and somehow someway have her understand the sun and moon were nothing compared to her He would fight himself to do right by her and be sometimes too sensitive in wanting to do the right thing and do the wrong hurtful thing thinking it was rightSurrounding these two characters there had to be families and friends those who would be important parts of the story Those who would be sounding boards or Devil's Advocates or comic relief which would lay the groundwork for surprises later in the story These other characters would keep the reader thinking and surmise as to what could be the idea down the line in the storyWould the twists and turns one thought they knew were coming actual be exactly that or would there be that added twist to make it even betterAnd speaking of story it would make sense It would have a purpose; not just something thrown together to keep the two main characters having earth shattering sexOhand the sex we might have to endure an amazing amount of mental and physical foreplaybecause the coupling of these two would mean something to both of themThe last part of this puzzle would be the location and community All of the descriptions of lakes land skies and stars The way the words would transport you to a place where you heard the gravel move when one walked it or feel the chill and nervousness of being in the woods when at any moment a bear or other unwanted creatures could make a showing This ability to have the elements described in a way where you may be sitting in the dead of summer but when reading this book the winter's chill is on your back So with all of these elementsI could try to create a type of Reid book but then again it goes back to that missing element The Secret Sauce The mind of Reid and try as a writer might without the inner workings of how to add the uirk which really isn't because it comes as natural as breathing to the character or collect and use collouialisms of regions or times or use vocabulary which just fits right but is than most it won't be doneThat is not to say other books by other authors will not be uick smart uniue charming and winning Not At All They just will be their own special books hopefully So if you really want to know about this particular entry of the Winston Brothers I will uickly tell you it had it allSmart endearing Jessica CheckHot Intense Duane Double CheckAll of the other Winston Brothers around or in the book CheckA heartwarming sometimes very humorous sometimes sexually hot all the time thinking story checkThere is plenty of Specific Reid all over this so if you are used to reading her it should be a no brainer If you loved Beauty and the Mustache then you already know of the Winston Brothers and their ways yumThis is a blatant love story no shame in it being right out there We get all of it plus clues to More love stories with the Winston's secrets revealed and all the feelings of knowing they love loving hard and deeply Please Penny Reid keep producing that Secret Sauce and sprinkle it all over your upcoming books Beauty and the Mustache Knitting in the City4Winston Brothers #05 Truth or Beard Winston Brothers #1 Grin and Beard It Winston Brothers #2 Beard Science Winston Brothers #3 Beard in Mind Winston Brothers #4 Dr Strange Beard Winston Brothers #5 Beard with Me Winston Brothers #55 Beard Necessities Winston Brothers #6 the series that started it all Neanderthal Seeks Human Knitting in the City #1 Neanderthal Marries Human Knitting in the City #15 Friends Without Benefits Knitting in the City #2 Love Hacked Knitting in the City #3 and the Mustache Knitting in the City #4;

    when in tennessee read bearded romances?i've heard a lot of good things about this series over the years and when i saw it pop up in audible escapes i decided an audiobook was a safe bet safe because i don't normally pick up wholesome small town romances and i'm really not into beards have you seen my fiance? lol but ya know it was free and available and i was visiting my parents in tennesseeand this was surprisingly good it did have all the small town charm but it didn't have the cheesiness i expected our hero was the perfect amount of mysterious and brooding without being a jack ass and our heroine had some shit she had to work thru that explained a lot of her hesitance to enter into a relationshipthe only thing i would have changed was perhaps the speed with which the heroine professed her love like i understood it the hero was hot and i was into it but it also felt a little uick given her hesitance to settle downbut i'm excited to continue on with this series and i'm hoping of the audios in this series become available on escapes

    Yeah the beard thing doesn't work for me And when you put a ginger in a giant beard I get this image in my headIt's a childhood thingBut still I could have handled it because the girl in the story was cracking me up at first She's snarky and has a cat named Sir Edmund Hillary who is actively trying to kill her on a daily basis What's not to like about that?Until well let's start with this the guy Duane tells her he wants to court her and take her out on nice dates bring flowers to her mother etc he wants to do it right So when he takes her on their big date you just know it's going to be somewhere nice right? Um yeah He takes her out to a dirty illegal racing event He doesn't tell her where they are going so she is wearing a white dress Surprise They get to eat chili while sitting on the ground with bikers and trashy people surrounding them and the roar and dirt spraying off cars racing next to them Romantic huh? But wait it gets better He then doesn't say a word to her but leaves her alone and goes off to race illegally In the car that they drove an hour in to get there And there have been tons of accidents in each race So he is willing to allow this girl he treasures to sit in the dirt while he possibly has an accident in the car leaving her stranded in a strange place surrounded by very shady characters Of course she is angry about thisAnd where was he keeping the bear suit? Why did he bring that on the date? I don't like where this is goingUntil he wins his race And then it's on She runs over to him and starts dry humping his leg in front of everyone She gets him into the car and is all over him like white on rice while all of the spectators are surrounding the car and watching them get it on ClassyThat was when I started to uestion my friendship with this girl But it was thoroughly over between her and me when she then becomes a pathetic suction cup who gives up every single bit of dignity and self respect she has to be with this guy She literally BEGS him at than one point to be with her She cries and whines and begs him to love her while she is telling him that she loves him ever other second when he never returns the sentimentYou see girls men are stronger than women While we have no control over our hormones and are begging for the D they have self control and will refuse to have sex with us for our own good Duane is a noble character while Jess is a sex starved pathetic creature in heat Duane will not have sex with her until he's good and ready Definitely not when she wants to have sex No it will be when she says no and never when she's climbing him like a monkey in a coconut treeSo I kind of had a problem with this book It just wasn't for me I know I'm picky I expect too much I actually think men should be respectful and women should be given a little dignity in stories It's crazy talk I know Sorry not sorry

    I was always running after her but this time I wasn't going to let her get away I loved this one I have a feeling this series is going to become one of my favorites these Winston boys are something special Truth or Beard was one of those reads that had me constantly smiling I am definitely becoming a Penny Reid fan Her style is a wonderful combination of fun and heartwarming with relatable characters you can't help but fall in love withJessica James has returned home after college but only plans to stay for a few short years she wants to travel to see the world Growing up with identical twins Beau and Duane Winston she has always had a favorite Beau was sweet safe and easy going the perfect guy to crush on Where as Duane was broody argumentative and complicated he was easily placed in the nemesis category Years later it doesn't seem like much has changed or has it I hope you wander into a hornet's nest and die of an acetylcholine overdoes I spatYou say the prettiest things A moment of mistaken identity is about to open Jessica's eyes Maybe Duane wasn't as indifferent to her as she thought It seems that uite the opposite is true Time is of the essence with Jessica's plans but will a year be long enough for this couple?I adored this story every single minute of it Duane was swoon tastic trying to treat his girl right sigh I did have a few unanswered uestions but since this is the start of the series I have a feeling I will get answers Also I CANNOT wait to get my hands on Cletus' book Maybe Duane should show you around the house it might help you cool offSitting so close to my sausage likely has you overheated and excited Cletus mumbled as he indicated to the grill with his chin

    The Winston Boys – 6 Bearded hotties up for grabsI’ll admit it I’m a sneak I actually messaged Penny Reid to complain suck up that her books were too good to have to wait for I mean seriouslyhot guys with beardsand we’re not talking about just one either6 of themand two of them are identical What’s a girl to do? Well this little chicky me scored I’m sure she felt sorry for me and decided I had the potential to be a stalker if I didn’t get my way So here we goI really loved those Winston men This is a family who is getting over the loss of their mother to cancer and a despicable father who showed no love or regard for any of them They are not perfect by any means but they do have such goodness within them that you can’t help but love them Duane our H is a daredevil He loves challenging his mind and body with dangerous activities He cares about his family and tries to solve all of their problems Jethro is the oldest Unfortunately he started to follow in his father’s footsteps but realises his mistake and makes every effort to change his ways CletusOMG this guy is funny but it’s the kind of funny where he’s not purposely doing it He’s extremely smart and is the one all the brothers go to when they need a problem nutted out Beau Duane’s twin is the easygoing one Smiles for everyone and manages to manipulate most people into seeing and doing things his way We don’t really get to know the other brothers and sister Ashley that well The one thing that stands out is that they love each other unconditionally and will always have each other's backThe James Family is made up of Daddy who’s the sheriff Momma who is a God loving mother to Jackson a police officer and Jessica a teacher and the heroine of the story TBH they came across as a bunch of people who lived in a house together We don’t see them checking in with each other or finding out how their lives are going We do see Jackson give a brotherly face to Jessica and then turn around and show an egotistical jerk to the Winston brothers Yes this could be seen as brotherly love but he never actually asked or took notice of Jessica’s desires or wants Jackson and Jessica didn’t seem to mind each other but they just didn’t feel connected to me The Sheriff seemed uite nice and I respected him for not being narrow minded but he obviously did not pass these values on to his son There is also mention of an Aunt Louisa in Texas It’s not until later that we learn about her and this part dragged down my opinion of the family even Jessica and Duane’s love story spans years Jessica is friends with both Duane and Beau One brother is nice to her and one enjoys tormenting her Guess which one likes her??? It’s the old pull the pigtails of the one you like kind of story think Maxwell Smart as you read that You can’t help but love Duane and his devotion to Jessica He had dreams and made plans that he hoped one day might come true Jessica made dreams and plans too Unfortunately their dreams aren’t on the same track This story is about finding love and whether sacrificing or compromising can help your dreams meet on the same trackThere are some dramas for the Winston’s with the local motorcycle club trying to take advantage of the boys The connections between some of the characters to our main characters reinforced the small town vibe Between the teacher friend connected to the President of the MC Jess’s cousin also connected to the MC and a history with Duane it’s got an everyone knows everyone vibeI really enjoyed Truth or Dare and will definitely be going back for I want to find out who is the perfect match for each of the brothers I have not read Beauty and the Mustache from the Knitting in the City series which has Ashley the only sister to the Winston’s in it I didn’t feel like I missed anything but it has now been added to my TBR pile because I don’t want to miss any of the Winston’s storyThis review and can be found at
