Falling for the wrong twin never felt so good . . .
From the NEW YORK TIMES, WALL STREET JOURNAL, & USA TODAY bestselling series

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 perpetually level-headed Jessica James has been in naïve and unhealthy infatuation with Beau Winston for most of her life. 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.

When Jessica finds herself drawn to the man who was always her adversary, how much of her level-head heart is she willing to risk?

Truth or Beard is book #1 in the Winston Brothers series. Each book is a standalone, full length (110k words), contemporary romantic comedy novel, and follows the romantic exploits and adventures of one of the six Winston Brothers.

    Not even worth 1 star. Absolutely awful; could not finish. :(
  • Recommend listening via audible

    By Yvette Br.
    4 stars! I listened to this via audible and really loved the story. The narrators really brought the book to life. I loved Duane and Jessica. Jessica was so sassy and fun to read. And I need a Duane in my life. He was so straightforward and honest about his intentions. Left no room for games and misunderstandings. It was so refreshing. I love listening to audio books while in the car so I wish I had longer distances to drive so I can do it more often. I really loved the story even though it took me forever to listen to. I really recommend the audio for this book. Can’t wait to read more in the series.

    This is one of my favorite book series ever and I absolutely adore this first book. Duane and Jessica have so much chemistry and this is the best type of hate-to-love you’ll ever read about. This is a slow burn romance and I think Penny Reid did a fantastic job with playing with the partner following their partner to another country trope! Highly recommended
