Winston Brothers #3 
Publication Date: October 11, 2016 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Humor, Romance


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.

  ‘Beard Science’ is the third book in the Winston Brothers series, is a full-length romantic comedy novel, and can be read as a standalone.




This is everything I expected and so much more! And I lurve it!

Yes, this can standalone but I seriously don't know why you'd want to not read the first 2 books in this series. These Winston boys, I tell ya, GAH, I want to be Ashley, their sister, yes! They're all too adorable and lovable for words, GAH!

Anyhoot, this is about Cletus. Cletus is everything I expected and so much more! See, there's another reason why you can't skip books in this series. You need to build up to the experience of Cletus:p Right from the start, I doubt he won't catch your attention.

He's odd, he's sneaky, he's cunning, he's sweet, he's funny, he's quiet, he's smart, he's thoughtful, he's caring, he's sincere... He dances to his own beat and stays true to himself... He really is quite an enigma... Regardless, he makes me smile...

❝ I only had time for twenty-four people (tops) in my life, and I already had six siblings. Twenty-four people was an average of two birthdays a month. Ain't nobody got time or more than two birthday celebrations a month. That's a lot of cake, and I'm particular about my cake.❞
He has own version of wisdom, in a way that only he can pull (translation: Cletus-ism)
❝ Bullsh!it was the adult version of Santa Claus. For reasons I'll never comprehend, the general population seemed to enjoy wallowing, spouting, and believing in bullsh!t.❞
❝ Saying someone would make a great politician is like saying someone would make a great serial killer. It's not a compliment.❞
And my favorite:
❝ If you're after a life-long baking partner, avoid indiscriminate bakers. And if you take on a reformed, previously indiscriminate baker, make sure he's had his kitchen thoroughly inspected by the health department.❞
BAHAHAHAHA... Oh Cletus... GAH!

And to get a h like Jenn, there couldn't have been a more perfect pairing. I mean, they're the least likely pair but when it boils down to what really matters, they're just the right match.

Jenn is quite an interesting h herself. She's the kind of daughter born in a past era. Yet she isn't. She's just as odd and cunning as Cletus, and yes, just like him, she's just as sweet, funny, quiet, smart, thoughtful, caring, and sincere. She did her best to dance to her own beat and stay true to herself, with the help of Cletus.

Ultimately, the kind of love they have is authentic to the core.
❝ You'll discover what it's like to find the other part of yourself. You'll know it's her, only her, always her. Maybe not right away,but eventually, you'll know. She'll be your beginning, middle, and end. And your intentions won't matter. Love brings its own intentions, and all other plans, hopes, and dreams fade to insignificance in the face of love.❞
Happy sigh...

I've said it before, I'll say it again. FLOVE the Winston brothers!!!

About Penny Reid

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing). By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.


Thanks for dropping by!
