Synopsis (Goodreads):
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?
Thoughts on Truth or Beard: MAN, I like those Winston men. They're just so delightfully quirky and...bearded. SO MUCH BEARD. SO MUCH. It was delightful.

So. Duane and Jessica. The surly mechanic and the Sheriff's daughter. They're kinda adorable together. Even when they're working at cross purposes. Duane is so determined to do things right just because he doesn't want to be like his dad. And Jessica has that laser focus on traveling the world which makes her practically blind to any other options.

They fight. They put ridiculous plans into play. They rely on their families and protect them when they need to. (As an aside....Tina is not a nice person. Just no.)

If I haven't mentioned it already, the rest of those Winstons are gloriously hilarious. Especially Cletus. I can't WAIT to start his book! The dude is just too smart for his own good. Or maybe for everybody else's good. I don't know. I just know he made me laugh.

Fun, flirty, and a little dangerous. I like these Winstons and hope to see a lot more of them.
