Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Title: Truth or Beard (Winston Brothers #1)
Author: Penny Reid
Release Date: May/June 2015
Publisher: Independently Published
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 advisory, now more dangerous than ever, how much of her level-head heart is she willing to risk?
Why I’m waiting?
I have made it an unofficial duty to talk about Penny Reid books every week. Why? Other than the fact she is breathing life into the indie scene, they are just so good. When I first met the Winston brothers in Beauty and the Mustache I have been charmed and maybe a little obsessed? They are funny. They are quirky. They have beards. Aren’t those all good reasons for waiting impatiently for this book? Oh, and the cover. I need that cover in my life, on my shelf, in the hands of my friends!
