Roscoe has even successful in avoid Simone for ten years. After she broke his heart, he did everything to erase memories of her. But one look at her and they all come rushing back. Suddenly, the more he tries to avoid her the more she is in his way and Roscoe is beyond baffled.

Simone clearly remembers how Roscoe threw her away for the popular crown and she is absolutely over it. 100% for sure over it. Then why does looking at him hurt? Why does his silence invoke feelings and pangs inside of her? Too bad he’s the only one who can help her.

My life is of the Winstons, by the Winstons and for the Winstons. They have become like my family and these updates about them are what keep me sane. I fall more and more in love with every subsequent book. I JUST NEED THEM SO MUCH.

Roscoe and Simone stole all of my heart and it didn’t even take them more than 10 minutes. They are very different but the love that they have for each other is just so pure and sweet and heart-warming.

This story set up plots for so many mind blowing events that I was crazy hyperventilating. It’s fraking amazing how Penny’s mind work. It’s borderline evil genius. The story was sweet, swoony, heart-felt and just so damn beautiful. I AM UTTERLY IN LOVE! *broken sobs* 

I’ll admit while reading my thoughts kept going to Billy and how he’s still waiting for his HEA. I’m ready to put my life on hold if that would help Penny Reid write faster. I just want that man to have all the happiness in the World and I want him to have it all now. That’s not too much to ask.

5 Stars!

Hunches, horse races, and heartbreak

Ten years after Simone Payton broke his heart, all Roscoe Winston wants is a doughnut. He’d also like to forget her entirely, but that’s never going to happen. Roscoe remembers everything—every look, every word, every single unrequited second—and the last thing he needs is another memory of Simone.

Unfortunately, after one chance encounter, Simone keeps popping up everywhere he happens to be . . .

Ten years after Roscoe Winston dropped out of her life, all Simone Payton wants is to exploit him. She’d also like some answers from her former best friend about why he ghosted her, but if she never gets those answers, that’s a-okay. Simone let go of the past a long time ago. Seriously, she has. She totally, totally has. She is definitely not still thinking about Roscoe. Nope. She’s more than happy to forget he exists.

But first, she needs just one teeny-tiny favor . . .

Dr. Strange Beard is a full-length romantic comedy novel, can be read as a stand-alone, and is the fifth book in the USA TODAY bestselling Winston Brothers series.
