Book & Author Details:
Beard with Me by Penny Reid
Publication date: 16th September 2019
Genres: Contemporary Romance
No one is better at surviving than Scarlet St. Claire and making the best out of circumstances beyond her control is Scarlet’s specialty. In an apocalyptic situation, she’d be the last person on earth, hermitting like a pro, singing along to her CD Walkman, and dancing like no one is watching.
Scarlet is clever, Scarlet is careful, and Scarlet is smart . . . except when it comes to Billy Winston.
No one is better at fighting than Billy Winston and raging against his circumstances—because nothing is beyond his control—is Billy’s specialty. In an apocalyptic situation, he’d be the first person on earth to lead others to safety, overcome catastrophe, or die trying.
Billy is fearless, Billy is disciplined, and Billy is honorable . . . except when it comes to Scarlet St. Claire.
When you think of Penny Reid books, I have no doubt that you think of them as somewhat quirky. Emotional, yes, but with humour to lift the storyline. Even Cletus, being his teenage self, cannot lift the pervasive sadness though this tale. And nor should he. It is as essential to this tale as breathing.
Don’t get me wrong. This is a beautiful tale. Stunning, really. And it is really well worth your time. But please be aware – there are some difficult subjects dealt with here. I was that Penny described this as a love story, not a romance. That, right there, is the heart of it.
And my heart? It hurts. But I forgive Ms Reid. Because she created this book.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
