    An absolute delight!

    The third standalone romantic comedy in the Winston Brother’s series by Penny Reid is Beard Science, an apt title for the smart and calculating character of Cletus whose machinations behind the scenes have been a staple in the previous books in the series. Now we get the delight of delving into his devious mind, and watching him get blown away by the intelligence and beauty of the one woman who sees through his façade to the real man underneath. Delightful, charming, inventive, heartwarming - really, there are many superlatives one could use to describe this author’s talents and they’d all be correct. Every story in the series is as unique as the characters that are represented, truly a daring feat where it’s all too common to find a trope you like as an author and stick to a tried and true formula. The only formula here is that taking a chance on love is worth the risk. The character growth and change is essential to this particular story. Jennifer starts out as a quiet, unassuming, and somewhat beaten down character. She goes along with anything her parents want, the defection of her brother to a local motorcycle club meaning that her mother can constantly play the teary eyed ‘but you’re the only child we have left!’ card and get Jennifer to do whatever she asks, so as not to add to the burden her mother carries. With Cletus now on her side helping her, she takes his advice in hand and starts making little changes, small refusals to fit in with her parents' expectations. Things like a different nail colour, a small change in her hair or her clothing – little acts of rebellion that fortify her nerve and her desire to move out and gain some independence. While Jennifer is gaining her backbone and her confidence, Cletus is discovering uncomfortable truths. He starts out as the confident, calculating, ‘everything is being handled’ kind of guy, only to discover that Jennifer is getting under his skin and making him question his motives and desires. Though he’d somewhat planned out his own love life, figuring on dating a new female mechanic they’ve hired at the shop, he realizes soon after that Jennifer is too fascinating for him to ignore, especially as those rebellious acts become more public. The sexual attraction between them sizzles, and the result is some steamy love scenes. But while Jennifer is definitely on board with some sexy times with Cletus, she’s also enjoying being able to express her own needs and desires for the first time in her life, and isn’t willing to give that up right away. She’s not going to change one dependent relationship for another, and Cletus is smart enough to know (and tell her) that she’s going to be worth the wait. The result is a beautifully done happy ending, suitable to both characters. As always, there are a combination of humorous and poignant scenes involving Cletus’s brothers and sister Ashley and a taste of what’s in store for the rest of the family. I can’t wait to read the next in the series!
