Beauty and the Mustache (Penny Reid)

There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston:

1) She has six brothers and they all have beards,
2) She is a reader, and
3) She knows how to knit.

Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous — local Game Warden, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions — or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands — to himself. Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she’s lost her heart in small town Tennessee.


After reading all the books that are out about the Winston Brothers, I decided to read the original book that gave way to those fantastic ones, the prequel, the book about Ashley, the only girl in the Winston clan.

Like I mentioned before, I did read the first book in the Knitting in the City series, Neanderthal seeks Human, and it didn’t quite blow me away, but this one I liked a lot more. Maybe because I was already so invested in the characters and I already knew Ash and Drew well, and liked them too.

But I will say that I wasn’t impressed by the way this book started out. Ashley goes home after being away for 8 years, to take care of her mom who is sick. I already knew that… what I didn’t know was how when she stayed away for those 8 years, she cut ties with all her brothers. As in, she didn’t speak with them, she hardly saw them, and she never asked her mom about her own siblings. DAMN! That hurt! Because I had read the other books first, I KNEW how amazing those boys were, so the fact that she was being all mean and shit was not right. But I had to try and pretend I didn’t know any of that, and see it from her perspective, and while I still thought it was all a bit bullshit, I got it a little bit… just a little.

Once I sort of got over this, and Ash did as well, I really liked her. I liked how fiercely she loved her mom and her friends, and even her brothers. I really liked how she strived for more, and made her own path. Drew is still a bit of a mystery, but he’s a man of a few words, so that was to be expected. Still, the fact that even though he had such strong feelings for Ash, but wasn’t willing to be in her way, warmed up to him. He was kind of dreamy!

The romance was well constructed and ran so deep. It was really amazing to see their relationship grow in such a turbulent time. Sweet and fun and sexy. Awesome!!!

But a few things were weird for me. I had to keep reminding myself that this book was written before the sequels, because there were so many things that my brain keep telling me were sort of wrong. Like the fact that no one seemed to be aware of Cletus brain power, or the fact that Billy and Jethro got along so well.

Overall, super sweet and enjoyable romance, that made me a tiny bit curious to read the rest of Knitting in the City series… I might have to give it a shot after all.

Sneak Peak: Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me — and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

Excerpt:

After that evening, I hadn’t heard back from him for a few days.

Then, one night, a text came in from the same phone number I recognized as Landon’s. It was the first time he’d texted me.

I looked down to find he’d sent a photo.

I gasped.

It was a heavily tatted man set against the backdrop of the ocean at sunset. Oh, my. It was him — a selfie.

Fuck. Me. He was beautiful.

I wouldn’t have even known it was Landon were it not for the blue eyes I recognized instantly. The shaggy, caramel hair I remembered from the past was now a darker shade of brown and shorter, cropped closer to his head. His arms and his chest were inked, his body so perfect that if I squinted, it almost resembled carved stone.

I couldn’t stop looking at him. My eyes wanted nothing more than to explore the ridges and valleys of his stunning body.

Was this a cruel joke?

This was not Landon!

But, it was.

With my thumb and middle finger, I kept zooming in and out, examining the details of the ink across his chest and on his arms. There was really nothing sexier than a guy with perfect arms and a full sleeve tattoo.

Even though his lips seemed fuller than I recalled, they still curved into a familiar grin that oozed confidence. The eyes and that smile were the only traces of the boy I remembered. I wished I could’ve leapt through the screen to smell him, touch him.

“Hi, Landon,” I whispered, for a brief moment talking to the boy inside, not the man in front of me.

This Landon was the polar opposite of the Ivy League yuppie image previously in my head. The only thing the man pictured might have majored in was badassery. He looked like a rockstar, a rule breaker, displaying a sense of arousing danger — someone who must have had women from all walks of life drooling over him for the sheer fact that either they couldn’t have him or shouldn’t have him. It suddenly became clear why, as he’d alluded to, a woman might have been begging him for sex. That made me wonder if he had any secret tattoos in spots I wasn’t allowed to see.

God.

A fire was burning inside of me, and I knew it was my crush exploding into a full-blown obsession.

A self-conscious feeling came over me. If I was scared to show him a picture of myself before, now I was really hesitant.

The message that went along with the photo simply read:

Now show me you.

Excerpt:

The last person I wanted to see walked into the restaurant, and I tensed.Her frantic gaze was forced to me, and the only three vacant seats. She searched the room in vain, the rounding of her spine a clue she wasn’t thrilled about her options. She looked out the way she came, squeezed her eyes, then squared her shoulders and marched toward me.

Part of me—the lower half—wanted to pin her to the wall with my thighs while I hitched that proper little skirt higher. The other part hoped she’d wandered into the wrong place. Not because our night together had been bad, or the fact that she’d disappeared without a trace. No. The thing that had the tendons in my neck bunching was remembering how good it all was. Too good and too much fun, and I’d imagined rounds two and three and four ad nauseam. But rounds always ended in a knockout punch.

This girl was nothing but trouble.

She paused at the table, drew in a long breath, mumbled something as she exhaled, then glared at the seat beside me and the ones across. She chose beside, probably to face the room.

The only reason we’d hooked up two weeks ago was because there were no names and no strings. She’d admitted how hard it would be for her to relax, how awkward she’d feel afterward. The relaxing part I took care of with one brush of my lips. The awkward was still alive and kicking.

What went down between us couldn’t happen again. Distractions over the next two months weren’t an option, and repeat affairs led to feelings, and feelings led to promises, and promises were nothing but lies dressed up to seduce. Not an outcome I was keen to revisit. Still, I couldn’t ignore her anxiety, as long as she wasn’t here because of me.

I leaned toward her. “You’re the last person I expected to see.”

She squished her lithe body farther from mine. “Kind of coincidental, don’t you think? Did you follow me?”

“I got here before you. If anyone is stalking, it’s you tailing me.”

Indignation colored her cheeks. “I didn’t follow you. I saw a flyer and thought the contest looked interesting, but you obviously read it, too. If I’d known you’d be here”—aggravation laced her hushed tone—“I’d never have shown up.”

Her harsh words had me fisting my hands, or maybe it was how tempting the line of her neck looked, that column of tanned skin shifting as she swallowed. But she was right: having a diversion wouldn’t help my plan. “Then we’re on the same page.”

“Excuse me?”

“Since we’re both here for the contest, we can pretend that night never happened.”

Her face fell, but a beat later, she said, “Good,” nothing but ice in her voice.

I followed with “Great.”

She spat, “Fine.”

So much for stamping out the awkward.

Blog Tour: Beard in Mind (Penny Reid)

BEARD IN MIND BT BANNER.jpg

Beard in Mind, an all new standalone in the bestselling, romantic comedy Winston Brothers Series by Penny Reid, is available NOW!

All is fair in love and auto maintenance.

Beau Winston is the nicest, most accommodating guy in the world. Usually.

Handsome as the devil and twice as charismatic, Beau lives a charmed life as everyone’s favorite Winston Brother. But since his twin decided to leave town, and his other brother hired a stunning human-porcupine hybrid as a replacement mechanic for their auto shop, Beau Winston’s charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket.

Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever.

She mumbles to herself, but won’t respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She won’t shake hands with or touch another person, but has no problems cuddling with a dog. And her damn parrot speaks only in curse words.

Beau wants her gone. He wants her out of his auto shop, out of Tennessee, and out of his life.

The only problem is, learning why this porcupine wears her coat of spikes opens a Pandora’s box of complexity — exquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexity — and Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean losing what matters most.


Review:

This book was a huge surprise. Somehow, I was expecting Beau’s book to be all fun and games, and what I got was the most serious and deep book of this series. This book made me cry like crazy instead of laugh.

Once again the writing was wonderful, but this book definitly felt very differently than the others on this series. This book is mostly told through Beau’s POV, and we only get Shelly’s perspective when she’s in the doctor’s office. While I understood the need for it to be this way, I also felt like I was missing something. I wanted to see a bit of Shelly’s day to day life through her own head. I wanted to read her struggles in real time. But either way, I liked that I got at least the bits and pieces in those sessions.

I really liked the two main characters, though I wanted to see a bit more of Beau too, what I did see of these 2, I liked. I loved Shelly, how wonderful she was, how trusting and willing, even through all her issues. How she didn’t hide from who she was. She was brave and beautiful. Beau is great, but I already knew that, because I’ve been seeing bits and pieces of him for several books. But I really liked how supportive he was of Shelly. How he SAW HER! 

Obviously I really liked the connection and the romance between these two characters. But most than anything I loved that the romance wasn’t used as a cure for Shelly’s issues. Beau helped her deal and adapt, but it was her battle, her refrigerator, and he was just handing her the tools when she wanted them. I LOVED THIS MESSAGE! You have to do you, and work on you. No one can do that in your place. You can only be supportive of the other person and be there for better or worse, and that’s what these two did for each other. A thousand times yes!

Of course I would have liked more to the story, especially I would have liked some closure and some sense of answers about the future. But we are still 2 books away from the end, and I hope that the next 2 books will give me closure about all the couples I love so much.

Also, I kind of saw that shitstorm coming, but I’m so excited about it. It just made things even more interesting, eheh.

I’m gonna ask again… Why haven’t you guys started this series yet?
It is seriously fantastic!


Excerpt:

She’d taken the sofa, in her own house, and given me the bed. That didn’t make a lick of sense.

I crouched next to her, threading my fingers into the silky hair at her temples. “Honey.”

“Mmm.”

I bent to whisper, “Shelly.”

“Hmm?”

“I’m going to carry you to your bed. I’ll take the sofa.”

“Mmm.”

I grinned at her soft noises, at the untroubled expression on her face, and how her brow — even in sleep — still looked regal and stern.

Sliding my arms under her legs and shoulder, I picked her up. And, unfortunately, that woke her up.

She jerked in my arms. “What are you doing?”

“I’m taking you to the bed.”

“Don’t do that.”

“I don’t mind, I’ll take the sofa.” Our mouths were just inches apart, and hers was distracting.

She squirmed. “Put me down.”

Sighing unhappily, I did. I set her on her feet next to the couch. The blanket pooled at her feet and I stepped back to give her some space. It was dark, but I could see her just fine, and that meant I had to force my eyes to remain above her neck. The woman was wearing two pathetic scraps of fabric as pajamas. A thin little tank top and shorts. That’s it.

I set my jaw and turned to the side, waiting for her to walk past.

“Where are you?”

I glanced at her and realized she couldn’t see at all. She didn’t have a hand out, but the way her eyes were moving about the room gave away her blindness.

“I’m here.” I didn’t touch her, because if I did, I wouldn’t want to stop.

Shelly turned her head in my direction and took a deep breath. Still she didn’t reach for me. I didn’t know the specifics of what to expect after her Friday session, but I recalled Dr. West saying something about Shelly doing self-guided ERP exercises over this week.

“Can you see?” She licked her lips, her voice sandpapery. “Because I can’t see at all. It’s so dark.”

“I can see.” Unbidden, my eyes dropped to her body, to the swell of her breasts, the panel of bare stomach, the curve of her hips. Pinpricks of heat raised over my skin and I curled my hands into fists.

She shuffled forward and I caught her before she bumped into me, setting my hands gently at her waist.

“Let me take you to your room.” My voice was rough, for obvious reasons.

Saying nothing, she brought her hand to my forearm, her body gently colliding with mine. And then her hand on my arm slid up my bicep to my shoulder.

“Shelly.” I was running out of breath.

“I like this.”

“What?”

“Touching you.”

Oh fuck.

I held still and endured her hands moving over my body, down the front of my shirt, stopping at the hem, then pushing it up.

“Take this off.”

I did. I pulled the T-shirt over my head and let it drop to the floor.

We stood there, facing each other in the dark, not touching. Despite the session on Friday and the progress that had been made, I realized she wasn’t quite there yet. Dr. West was right, Friday was just a step, the first step. Shelly wasn’t able to initiate contact. Not yet.

Her hands balled into fists and she swayed forward, her breath struggling little puffs.

If anything was going to happen tonight, I had to initiate it. I had to be the one to touch first.

God, how I wanted her. How I wanted her above me, beneath me, surrounding me. But how could I?

“I know why I hesitate,” her voice was breathless, “but why do you hesitate?”

“Lots of reasons.”

“Give me one.”

“I don’t want to you use you.”

“I wish you would.”

That pulled a laugh from me, just a small relief from the mounting tension. My eyes moved over her body, an undeniable impulse to devour the sight of her, her legs, stomach, chest, then up her neck to her lips.

“You asked me on Saturday if sex was a big deal for me, or if it was you. The answer is both.”

She held very still, and I got the sense she was holding her breath, straining to listen.

“You are a big deal to me. I don’t want a fling. I don’t want a flirtation. I want promises.”

“What can I promise you?”

That you’ll love me. That I’ll be your priority.

She shifted her weight from foot to foot. A spike of anxiety that she might leave me like this had me acting without forethought. I lifted my hands to her waist again and immediately, her fingertips skimmed over skin of my lower stomach in response, making my muscles tense in hot anticipation. She grew more assertive as she caressed my sides, abdomen, ribs, chest, shoulders, and then back down.

Shelly stepped closer, a hint of thrilling contact between her breasts and my torso, and all the words and worries melted from my mind, died on my tongue, suffocated by the feel of her body, and the possibility of this moment.

Her finger hooked in the waistband of my jeans. “Take these off.” Her hand turned, her fingers and palm cupping me over my zipper.

Instinctively, I pressed myself into her touch even as I grabbed her wrist.

“Beau, I promise—”

She didn’t get to speak, because I kissed her, hard and wild, unbuttoning and unzipping my fly with one hand and bringing her palm inside my boxers with the other.

Beard in Waiting (Penny Reid)

A Long scene/short story featuring two unlikely characters from the Winston Brothers series.


When I started this I thought it was a novella, but in truth it is a very very short story about 2 very unexpected characters.

Are you ready to know about who the book is? I need to talk about it, otherwise I cannot actually review this scene, eheh. So this story is about Diane, Jennifer’s mom. And… Repo… yep, Repo. If you’ve been reading the series you might be thinking right about now: “damn, these people are all related somehow“, and I say, yep, it seems so, eheh.

I didn’t really like Diane on Beard Science, even though she kind of redeemed herself towards the end, the way she treated Jennifer throughout all her life, was a huge no no for me. Yes, I hated her daddy more, because he implied all the time that she was dumb and so on, but Diane’s treatment of her daughter wasn’t that much better. So, I’m glad to say that she grew on me on this short story, because I felt like she was truly trying to be better for Jenn. But I do like Repo, and I want better for him than that club, so I hope this was the beginning of something, and that by the end, we actually see these two together and happy and NORMAL, because they both deserve that.

Overall, a very cute very short story, I wish it was just a  bit MORE.

Beard Science (Penny Reid)

Make a deal with the devil and you might get what you want, but will it be what you need?

Jennifer Sylvester wants one thing, and that one thing is NOT to be Tennessee’s reigning Banana Cake Queen. Ever the perpetual good girl and obedient daughter, Jennifer is buckling under the weight of her social media celebrity, her mother’s ambitions, and her father’s puritanical mandates. Jennifer is officially desperate.

And desperate times call for Cletus Winston.

Cletus Winston is a puzzle wrapped in a mystery covered in conundrum sauce, and now he’s in a pickle. Despite being convinced of his own omniscience, extortion by the exalted Banana Cake Queen of Green Valley has taken him completely by surprise. So… what’s a maniacal mastermind to do?

Likely, the last thing you expect.


CLETUS WINSTON!!!

This was definitly my favorite book of this series so far, and I think that’s because Cletus Winston and Jennifer Sylvester are over the top AMAZING characters. I already thought Cletus was fantastic, I love how his mind works, how smart he is, how he analyses the situations and schemes and plots. He’s hilarious, smart and overall super entertaining.

But I was surprised to see a great match for him in Jennifer. Just like Cletus, she’s an observer, so she SEES everything and everyone, EVERYTHING. And she never ceases to amaze me throughout this book.

The plot was my favorite too, because blackmail is always fun, and the goal for each of them was great and hilarious. Jennifer wanted a husband so she could be free of her controlling parents, Cletus decided she would grow a backbone. And she does! I loved to see Jennifer flourish throughout this book, becoming more assertive and herself, letting her personality, wants and dreams shine. And in the meantime, it was so much fun to see Cletus realize all along that his preconceived notions were all wrong, and the right person for him was right there all along.

These two made the cutest couple!

And again, the family element to this series is beyond fantastic. In each book was see a little bit more of the siblings, supporting and helping each other, and I’m still so darn curious for Billy’s book…

This series is a real treat, and this book is a winner. So, guys, why haven’t you started this series yet? What are you waiting for?

Grin and Beard It (Penny Reid)

Sienna Diaz 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?


You guys might have caught on as to how much I loved her first book in this series, Truth or Beard, right?! Well… I think I loved this one even more.

I’m gonna admit that I’m a bit tired of my reviews, I seem to repeat the same words a lot. So for this one I’m doing a list of what made this book awesome.

1. The humour! It was one of my favorites things on the first book, and I think this one was even better, mostly from Sienna’s POV, because that girl was so darn funny. Granted… she was supposed to be.

2. Sienna. I love when books represent real woman. And by “real”, in this case, I mean a size 14, with curves. Sienna was called fat by a lot of people, especially in the movie industry and she never let it bother her. She was unapologetic about who she was, and what she looked like and I loved her for it. She liked to eat, she loved her body, and she didn’t take shit. HELL YEAH!

3. Jethro. I’m a sucker for second changes, and this guy got a second chance in live, and strived to do better, for himself and for his family. He was awesome and so hard working and calm and caring and balanced. AMAZING.

4. Family. The family aspect of these books is still my favorite thing, because those people love each other fiercely, they joke, they fight, they bond, but they always support each other.

5. Cletus interference… I love the 3rd oldest brother. He’s a hoot.

6. The romance was pretty amazing. I was a bit afraid at first, with Sienna being a big movie star and all, how exactly their romance was going to work. They booth adapted and did better, and they were just perfect for each other.

7. The lack of drama! Oh yeah, there is some mild drama during the book, some things here and there, but once they get together, they are together. They solve their issues, they talk, they support. I LOVE THIS.

So guys, I really likes this one, the brothers keep being amazing, and I’m loving every minute of this series. I’m now almost done with all the books that are already out, and I need Roscoe and Billy’s books ASAP!

Go read this series NOW!
