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 adversary, now more dangerous than ever, how much of her level-head heart is she willing to risk?

Review By: Gina
Another amazing book by Penny Reid, in fact Truth or Beard is my favorite to date!!! This book has everything...it's funny, sweet, sexy, and suspenseful!
The writing was fantastic. One thing with a Penny Reid book is no detail, big or small, is missed. The story line flowed nicely which made the book entertaining from beginning to end.
I love the Winston boys! And I just maybe need a bumper sticker that says that too! I love the relationship they all have together. It would be so fun to hang out with them for a day. The banter and teaser between them all was hilarious. I didn't think a conversation about pancakes or sausage could be so entertaining. And of course the man of the hour...Duane. He was just so sweet. I love his adventurous side. I high recommend this book and I am looking forward to reading about the next Winston adventure!
