Beards, brothers, and bikers! Oh my!
About Penny Reid
Review & Images by Guest Reviewer Lisa Jayne
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 more 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 am.
What'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 quotes, 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 quirky 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 more 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.
