There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston's preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can't escape the notice of Drew Runous- local Game Warden, reclusive mountain man, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone's favorite guy. Drew's irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can't seem to keep his exasperating opinions- or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands- to himself. Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she's lost her heart in small town Tennessee.

REVIEW

 

I’ve been wanting to try this series for so long and I’m so glad that I held out until I was able to buy the paperbacks! First of all, I just love the covers. I love a good theme, and these are just too cute to resist. I’m usually a stickler about reading a series in order, but if you are wanting to get into the Winston Brothers series before starting Knitting in the City, you absolutely can start with Beauty and the Mustache!

DREW!!!! Damn I loved Drew. All mysterious and a brooding Viking to boot! Sign me up. I loved Ashley and Drew’s relationship. It was funny, frustrating and simply romantic at the same time. I am a huge fan of romance novels actually being ROMANTIC. This one definitely fits the bill. When I first starting reading romance, I wasn’t into the frilly poetry and art lingo, but now as I’ve gotten older, I’m finding myself love it more and more.

I am sooooooo excited to continue with this series. I instantly fell in love with the Winston brothers during this story and I can’t wait for all of them to get their happy ever after! I’m also excited to be so intrigued by Ashley’s friends that I’m definitely going to have to check out the Knitting in the City books as well!.
