Beard NecessitiesThe soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts and my soul was still Scarlet Wow Just wow I ended this book with a face full of tears and a tinge of melancholy in my heart This series is than ust a series to me and as this chapter closes on the Winston clan I am left an irrational sense of emptiness I remind myself that these are FRIENDLY ENEMIES just characters in a story but then I laugh at the ridiculousness because I know I m lying as I try to deny that they have become like a family to me I ve loved them been mad at them rejoiced with them and cried with themBilly Winston the stalwart protector of his family has been the one person we never knew much about but always felt like we knew He was strong stubborn and an unfailing protector He took care of what was his despite his safety Billy didn t have a selfish bone in his body and that would come back to haunt him Because his need to protect kept him away from the only person he ever loved outside of his family but the one person who was always outside his reach You are the architect and artist of my own personal paradise Meanwhile Claire was filled with guilt of loving and desiring a man other than her husband A man who was always hers but never within her reach Guilt kept her away from Billy But the Winston clan would bring them together again Lead by Cletus his family realized it was time for them to put Billy first and to intervene in his life to take charge And take charge they did They schemed they manipulated they lied and they pulled pranks all with the end goal of bringing Claire and Billy together once and for allBilly s devotion to and love for Claire was so pure and grounded in their rich history Not always good and not always bad the two shared experiences that no one else had or ever would Their experiences bonded them with the strength of steel It was unbreakable It may have taken them a while to find their way back to each other but Billy needed to hate Claire to love her and Claire needed to lose Billy to love him Y all Reid killed it with her uote worthy phrases I could seriously gather them all and put them on throw pillows around my home Nothing lasts forever Not a song not happiness not misery Mere survival was no safer than living for hopes and dreams At the end there will always be the endSo why not dream Why not hope Why not live life with wild faith and abandon Why not take the risk Otherwise all these moments small or momentous heaven on earth would be lost to fear Saying goodbye is not easy This has been a top favorite series and even though I know Reid has books in store I m not sure there will ever be another series that I love as much as this one I was provided a review copy by Penny Reid this did not influence my opinion of the book 10 epic Winston stars for Beard NecessitiesI have no words only this painful lump in my throat and the tears streaming down my face in the grocery store parking lot in my town I love this family Every single person in these books have left their mark on my heart and I m afraid it s permanent Penny has truly outdone herself with this book and I can t imagine the feels that it must ve given her to finally pen The End I didn t want this to end but alas all good things must come to an end Iust want to sit here in the uiet of my car and go through the gazillion highlights I ve made in this book So many moments of laughter pain awe swooning and ust relishing the tender moments and words of wisdom between siblings and their spouses I love the deep friendships they all have with each other and fierce loyalty they share That is family All the uniue personalities uirks insecurities and strengths that they all draw from each other is beautiful I m not giving a single detail away to this breathtaking story Everyone should experience this for themselves spoiler free All I know is I have come away with such a deep respect for these people for Penny and especially Cletus as with such a deep respect for these people for Penny and especially Cletus as is The Godfather of the Winston s I love this series so much You re not alone either I m here Your burdens are mine so are your hopes and dreams I want it all I want to share everything with you Please Trust me to be strong I trust you I was waiting for this ever since I read Beard Science but this fell short of what I expected this to be This was getting to be a 5 star book for me when I started it off The last book was background on the MCs when they were kids even tho they behaved twice their age at least See review here first 40% or so of this book was very promising tugged on my heart strings every which way for Billy Reminded me of the PAIN I enjoy these heart rending books in and Also about an epic couple who has a past that prevents them from sharing a present and future So I was EXCITED to see how Scarlet was going to WIN BACK Billy because from my POV knowing everything that happened between them it s still mostly her faultThis is where I have to take down my stars to 4 stars Because Scarlet didn t grovel she didn t win back anything BILLY APOLOGIZED TO HER FOR BEING SELFISH AND WON HER Say whatSo now I get into the back drop IF YOU DON T WANT SPOILERS DON T READ ON the 2 meet when she s 14 he s 16 He s de facto head of household with ridiculous burdens on his shoulders He grew up in a violent household His father is a member of an illegal MC But he s the perfect guy and his biggest fault is seeing everything in black and white There is no gray He s too unyielding She s the daughter of the serial killer head of the MC Her childhood is even violent and she doesn t even have a home to live in so of the MC Her childhood is even violent and she doesn t even have a home to live in so camps out in the woods Long story short they meet he decides to take care of her which is what he does for everyone hero complex and they fall in love given she s so young she really can t be expected to understand relationships between men and women She has a major crush on a much older guy 19 Ben And then she falls in love too with Billy and says no to Ben Stuff happens WHERE SHE S IN TROUBLE WITH HER FATHER AND she s in trouble with her father and convinces her to run away and never come back so she d be safe But the MC members come hunting for her and he takes her punishment for her broken fingers aw legs flesh cut into etc and was hospitalized for months lost his football scholarship his chance to go to college get out of town etc meanwhile she gets married to Ben who gives her the impression that she s safe because of him and she never knows what Billy did for her Billy is resentful that she chose Ben out of gratitude and obligation even tho she s in love with Billy and he s in love with her They have a weird push and pull relationship while she s engaged and then married for a decade Then Ben finally dies forget how and now she s free but Billy is faked engaged for his political career and Scarlet is going to therapy present day Billy put himself through hell again to mainly get revenge on the head of the MC and also to get And a Bottle of Rum justice He s tired of Scarlet s cold shoulder and silence while she s dealing with her own issues and he sust ready to give up on everything on them The whole Winston family is in Italy for the birth of Duane s baby and spending several weeks there I guess as a family getaway Here s their chance at reconciliation being in close proximity for extended period of timeThis part reminds me of And the sacrifices and grudges also remind me of Pure Surrender Yeah Aja s books are forever imprinted in my mindAt this point i m thinking yes GO GET YOUR MAN woman I thought Billy Winston’s family is going to see him happy and in love if it’s the last thing they doNo one deserves a happily ever after uite as Carlet will finally know what he did for her she s stronger now and sure of herself and she ll go get her manBut that s not apparently Scarlet Her way of getting her man is to cook for him and give him little touches and essentially WAIT FOR HIM TO COME GET HER I liked her character but I really hate this part The thing is from Billy s POV what led him to make the decisions he s made keeping silent about many things is because he never felt secure enough in Scarlet s love Her actions didn t prove that she loved him but she explains it away and he Crochet just accepts it AT WHICH POINT I MIGHT HAVE CURSED A LOTHe wasn t secure in her love when they were young give her a pass for being 14 not when they were older and she was married 18 and not now 30ish Because she NEVER DID ANYTHING TO WIN HIM Tell me What did she do for him Other than write little haikus and tell not funnyokes WHAT DID SHE DO FOR HIM She might have said the words once or twice but she didn t fup with actions She didn t break off her engagement tho he begged her to and he didn t tell her about his being the one making her safe instead of her selfish fiance because he didn t want her to feel indebted to him too he wanted her to CHOOSE him Choose love over fear and gratitude That s not what she did I find her reasons tepidThen he tried to convince her to leave her husband and yeah he could have been less circuitous about it and direct and they shouldn t have been sneaking around emotional cheating but cheating but she also didn t leave then She certainly participated aplenty in the emotional cheating tho INDECISIVE MUCHSO IF BEN her not so great husband LIVED TO 100 WHAT THIS BOOK TELLS ME IS THAT THIS TRUE LOVE EPIC COUPLE WOULD NEVER HAVE GOTTEN TOGETHERNow marinate on that for a bit ust think it through with meThat s what this book is telling me that they couldn t have found their way to each other without all the stars aligning and husbands dying and family diving in to help them thank you CletusI compare that with the epic true love books I mentioned above and I m left wholly unsatisfied UNSATISFIED Billy saved Scarlet s life He s the reason from teaching her music to encouraging her singing she is free and soaring while he s taken so much damage and pain both physical and emotional unto himself And you know why HE s the one apologizing to HERBecause HE S SELFISH FOR NOT TELLING HER WHAT HE DID HE S SELFISH FOR WANTING HER TO CHOOSE HIM BECAUSE IF THEY WERE JUST FRIENDS AND HE WASN T IN LOVE WITH HER HE WOULD HAVE TOLD HER AND SHE WOULDN T HAVE WASTED HER TIME WITH BENThat s the logic folks But listen how about this logic if they were ust friends loved as a friend I don t think he ever would have done all of that She s not family He only does this for family He has NO FRIENDS as far as I can tell and she might have still been able to get away by marrying Ben Or he would have plotted what to do with Cletus My point is if they d been only in love as friends things never would have happened this way Billy did what he did for the GIRL HE LOVES he took her pain for himself he would move heaven and earth to protect her so to theorize about him doing this as FRIENDS is STUPID And then using that theory to make him apologize is STUPIDOK now I m mad so I m taking down another starWhy else was the last 50% or so unsatisfying bc with 2 decades of sexual tension the sex was pretty lukewarm VERY lukewarm I was expecting Billy to explode honestly This guy has been celibate for most of his adult life bc he loves this woman and when they finally get together I m like mehThe only saving grace was what Scarlet did for Billy in the end to keep him out of ail And they get a HEA But the resolution of the past was very much unsatisfyingThere are things Billy should apologize for but there s ust as much Scarlet should apologize for and I never got that satisfaction Like you have this wonderful devoted man chasing after you for a decade why couldn t you choose him over fear and a sense of indebtedness To a man you know is not worthy Who is truly selfish and uses you You re either stupid not sure of what you feel or a complete coward None of these options make Scarlet an appealing character to meSo yeah we get these Options Make Scarlet An make Scarlet an character to meSo yeah we get HEA but it wasn T As Satisfying As I as satisfying as I it would be Unlimited Amount of Stars and Hearts Congratulations 2019 Best Romance Semifinal Round Nominee Review Spoiler FreeIn 2014 Penny Reid introduced to the world the Winston Brothers in her crossover book Beauty and the Mustache She took Ashley from our Knitting in the City group and brought her back to the family home in Tennesse Little did we all imagine how impactful it would be to our hearts and minds And in my humble opinion I think a lot of other savvy authors took note too because it seemed everywhere I turned to read there were these sexy men with BEARDSJust Sayin But I digress The Winston Brothers became a series that took me on a Desire and Deceive journey I never knew I wanted to go onReid does that naturally with all of her books If you haven t read Reid please take a look at her entire catalog there is something for everyone So this Winston family has been the passion of mine from the start and one of the main players has been Billy Winston He is the one brother who was part of every story yet still was a mystery We would get bits and pieces hints as to why he was who he was yet never enough to satisfy As the series worked its way through all of the siblings the one brother we all had a neverending interest in was Billy Earlier this year the backstory of Billy s and Scarlett s younger life and love story was released It is NOT a reuired reading Ms Reid is very emphatic about it To read it might be too intense for someI can honestly say Ms Reid covers what is necessary for those who have not read Beard with Me to feel as if they have a handle on Billy s and Scarlet s issues and feelings for each other However if you have the ability to read Beard with Me you will experience something uite touching and real It is the foundation of the type of love someone has for another that has no boundaries or limits they will do to protect and shield the other Which brings me finally to Beard Necessities The love Billy and ScarletClaire have for each other is thereit has always been there It hasust been incredibly difficult for both of them to be on the same path together at the same time It has been like they were in a tall maze where they started out together and then due to both being stubborn or misreading cues or both they separated got mixed up and could never find the path back to each other Oh they could hear each other and try to direct which way to go only to get deeper and deeper turned around At one point both seemed to be stuck Each living life going through the motions but with this undercurrent of want and need for the otherAll of this turmoil has not gone unnoticed by the entire family The main manipulator and constant thinker of things Cletus has decided enough is enough He assesses the situation sees an opportunity where the conditions are perfect to enact a plan and calls a meeting of the minds As Ms Reid states at the very beginning of the blurb Billy Winston s family is going to see him happy and in love if it s the last thing they do This ourney for Scarlet and Billy will not be the easy road without bumps or hiccups but it will be the perfect one for them and us All is revealed all is displayed each loving confusing and som. Uch as the second oldest Winston brother and his lady love Claire McClure aka Scarlet St Claire Cruelty and circumstance tore them apart almo. .
