    4.5 stars I ve read every book in the Winston Brother s series upon release I ve been reading this series for over 4 years now, and Billy Winston has always been the brother I ve been most curious about He s different than his brothers and sister You can tell he s carried than they have, but you re never sure what or why Finally, you find out And let me tell you, this was not an easy read At times, it was a lovely story about first love and made my heart so happy, at other times, I was devastated over many different things Billy Winston is a protector Even though he s not the oldest Winston brother, he s the brother that is always there for his mom and siblings He works hard, goes to school, plays football, and helps his mom He is the person you want in your corner Scarlet St Claire has one thing in common with Billy Her dad is also a Wraith and an awful human being But Scarlet doesn t have a great mom like Billy she s on her own But being on her own is better than being with her parents, so that s what she choses She deserved so much better than the hand she d been dealt Maybe her struggles had made her strong, resilient, but she didn t deserve to be burdened with them Scarlet s story broke my heart Her parents were truly the worst I already knew that from reading the other books in this series, but this book just solidified it One thing that made me super happy was seeing Scarlet and Cletus s friendship It warmed my heart And Scarlet and Billy together was everything Until it wasn t After reading this book, I m even anxious to get to the part 2 of Billy and Scarlet No one deserves a happy ever after than these two I can t wait to watch Billy rekindle his love with Scarlet I have hope that it will happen This book is part 1 of their story, and it s not a romance, as the author says It s a tragic love story And if you re sensitive to certain topics, beware especially abuse of any kind.

    Beard With Me by Penny Reid Will you sing for me again, so I can find you I thought for sure that I would be in a complete mind melting, emotional brain fog of epic proportions after having finished this book, but somehow, at the end of it all, my mind is completely focused and eager to absorb , my heart is admittedly still very, very tender but it also retains a vital shred of hope and yes, my thoughts are going a thousand different directions, yet they are all seemingly concentrated, towards this one agonising, beautiful, breath stealing love story, that deals out tears and laughter in equal measure Technically it is a prequel, or an origin story I suppose, but I honestly feel like that is selling this book far too short It is a volatile saga of pain, loneliness, fear, willfulness, hope, strength, selflessness, courage and above all else, love Familial love Love for yourself Falling madly, deeply, irrevocably in love Excruciating love Lost love All Time love Now that I know your heart, I ll forgive you anything We all know that author Penny Reid is a certified wonder when it comes to writing romance, comedic timing, quirky characters, eccentric heroes and adorable heroines but what she also showcased here in Beard with Me, is her ability to handle heart wrenching topics with aplomb and sensitivity These issues are not used as a mediocre tool to elicit sympathy for her characters, they are there to show us just how incredibly resilient, strong and remarkable these people are Not people but kids Reading this story, I often forgot what age Billy and Scarlett were because they are so jaded, heartbreakingly sad and too mature for their years Individually they are exceptional, to say the least But, together, they are everything You deserve the best, Scarlett Only the best And, I swear, I will always mean every one of our kisses Every single one I m not going to lie and say this book was an easy read, because it wasn t We got to see every side to Billy and to Scarlett The raw, wounded sides and the sweep you off your feet and melt your heart sides My lip trembled and my eyes misted over often than not but it was also a good kind of pain to experience because along with the pain came the fun, friendship, comfort, belly aching laughter and the fast, tumultuous hurtle into soul deep love There was a perfect balance of the good with the bad The sweet and the sour I went into this book with serious reservations and jumbled nerves, about what lay ahead, but I came out of the story with a full heart, a clear mind and an eagerness for the conclusion to these two phenomenal characters happy ending Because even after all of this, in how it all began with harsh words and ended in a killing silence, that s the one thing that keeps these characters going when it all feels insurmountablehope.

    I m only rating this now because I find it super annoying when people rate a book they ve never read 1 star and skew the rating of a book that likely hasn t even been written yet downward Be the light you wish to see in the world, people.

    5 What Needed To Be Told Stars Spoiler FreeOne of the amazing talents of Penny Reid is to create worlds which feel real to the reader She has this way of making us believe wherever her books take place, they are places we would find if we looked hard enough I have no idea if there is a real Green Valleybut as long as Penny Reid writes about the Winston Brothers and those who live there, I will believe Now with this in mind, Ms Reid created a very complex family tree and backstories for this Winston Family and their friends, families, and foes Throughout all of the books, in the ways we learned about each of the brothers, we had hints of the pasthow violent, how cruel and how past traumas shaped themfor the good and bad These hints were not too detailed but did give the reader a sense of how serious these experiences wereSo it was only a matter of time and bravery for Ms Reid to take a moment and share all that she had carried in her heart about these charactersWhen you create characters so real that they seem to breathe and live off the page in our minds, I can only imagine the constant nudge to have their truths released and shared In Beard with Me, you are given the developing Winston s and the other characters during their coming of age We are flies on the wall with the journeys the Winston Brothers have which will impact everything We meet Scarlet St Claire, Billy Winston, Ben McClure and then have huge doses of Cletus with nods to Beau, Dwane, Jethro, and the sister, Ash The Wraths also make their presence known Ms Reid made it very clear this is NOT a Romance but a Tragic Love Story She is absolutely correctbut in many ways there is a budding type of romance is planted The focus of this Love Story is between Billy and Scarlet It is the type of story which is innocent, fun, sweet and heartwrenching.As you read this, you will run the gambit of emotions You will be cautious, watchful then hopeful, and gleeful You will also be horrified, angered, in pain and feel helpless at times There will be humor, incredible strength and bravery And there will be kindness, sly teasings, sweet talking and just the beauty of Reid s writing You may know at some moment this will cause you great pain and empathy for many of the characters but you will continue to read because you are so invested I felt my eyes watering as I read through, my heart hurting as if this story was happening to people I actually knewBut all of these emotions weren t a surprise to me because when I read Reid, she takes me THEREShe takes me to the joy, the pain and the results she wantsHappily This can totally be read as a stand alone It has a beginning, middle, and end We do this journey and understand the intensity and truth of real love for another PERIOD And that IS story enoughfor any reader or author Yet, for those who have been a Reid Readerone who has been following the Winston Brothers from the very beginningthis is a special insight into Billy Winston s history, of why he is who he ishis journey into manhood and his past with a woman he truly loved It also gives us the backstory of this special woman, information which is so critical For

    God gave us free will so that we ll stumble and learn how to pick ourselves back up But He also gave us folks who love us, to clear away the obstacles before we trip and fall Let s just start with the obvious, this is the prequel to the long, long, looooonnnnnggggg awaited Billy n Claire HEA that everyone and their cousin has been waiting for since forever We all know they have a small ocean s worth of water under their bridge and this book gives insight into where and how all that water got there If you ve not read the series, this is a fantastic place to start, actually, because not only does it cover Billy and Scarlet Claire but all of the Winston brothers are featured to varying degrees from Cletus and his Cletusness to the twins and their yin yang thing to Roscoe and his preciousness However, it is not the easiest book to read Scarlet and Billy have monstrous fathers who play pivotal roles in their development I knew that but I did not know the details of Scarlet s backstory, most of which is awful So, if you re triggered by abuse this might not be the best read for you.On the other hand, Billy s backstory didn t surprise me and probably won t surprise fans of the series He s responsible, altruistic, loyal and intense through circumstances beyond his control foisted upon him at a young age Case in point I redoubled my resolve She deserved someone looking out for her first, someone who d set aside selfishness for her sake So, yeah, I would keep her safe, even if it meant sending her away My heart broke again for both of them and I am beyond ready for them to be exceedingly selfish when it comes to each other Enough with the doing the right thing and always putting others first nonsense.It s your time, Clairilly Carpe diem My only quibble is the lack of a comprehensive backstory the whole thing takes place in 2003 when they are 14 and 16 They fall in love in a week which was a surprise to both of them and extremely gratifying for me to read But I know there are heartbreaks, disappointments, sacrifices and missed or wasted opportunities and I wish a couple of them would have been included as well For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction It applied to life and hopes and dreams and expectations too Needless to say, I would like Beard Necessities and my equal and opposite reaction, like, yesterday I find Green Valley extremely comforting even when things are tense so while it might seem counterproductive to long for the final installment a I will always have this series and b there are not one but TWO spinoffs in the works One of which involves Cletus and Jennifer and undoubtedly some shenanigans so I m owning my greediness I m ready to soak in a tub filled with Billy and Claire s happy happy joy joy until my fingers get pruny Recommended with the caveat mentioned above.Review up 10 8 on An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.
