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?


4.5 Wanderlust Stars!!!!

Ahhh!!! This book was so much fun! I’m seriously addicted to the Winston Siblings!

After finishing Ashley’s story, I couldn’t wait to dive into the next one. As soon as I started Duane and Jess’s book, I instantly fell in love with them!!

Penny does quirky romance so damn well. But I was totally surprised that this one had an element of suspense, betrayal and some major angst!!

These books are monsters. You might think that a 377 page novel is no big deal, but they don’t have a large style print and the margins are full, so really this is well over 400 pages of a typical book. With that said, I read it in two days because it was ADDICTING!!!!

I can’t wait to devour this series! My only complaint is that I’m going to have to wait for the last three to come out. Billy….I need Billy’s book!!!!!!
