Josie | 2 comments I have known your work at that time when I badly need something to tether me from myself as I was really in a BAD place (well in my judgement 🤭 that time) and I need a very good distraction. Since I’m a book lover before a music lover I went to goodreads (this app 👍) searching for books and I do remember, Beauty and The Mustache. The idea of Escapism and that Ashley was a Nurse like me (though not great and cool as her ☺️) was pushed me to start reading it and it cured me. I fell in love with you, I mean the book or yes , your work. 🤭I learned to appreciate my family,( though I really want to try the nipple abuse to my bro after reading that), my friends and myself again. I remember that even when taking shower I was constantly reminded of some funny scenes from work and it continued until I go to work. From there I started being hooked with your lovely work! Somehow time passed by and made my life bearable. Thank you po for inviting me here. 😊 I do hope to read more from you and continue doing what you love po. God bless! 💜

Elle Vanzandt (elle_vanzandt) | 5 comments Love your books Penny! Thank you so much for the invite. I'm getting ready to read the whole Winston Brothers series and as a fellow yarn junkie I loved reading my favorite hobby, crocheting, mixed with awesome characters! Can't wait to see what's coming up next!

Csilva | 1 comments I’m a huge Penny Reid fan, thank you for the invite. This group is such a great way to come together share our love of romance novels. I tend to read and reread Penny’s books, they are comfort food in book form. Funny, clever and I love the way they treat me like I’m clever too! If I was to name favourites I’d basically be naming all Penny’s books, once I read and loved one it was then all of them. Big thanks to Penny for introducing me to LH Cosway, loved the Rugby series, but also all of L.H Cosway’s other books as well. Thank you Penny for your books, beards are awesome! Xx

Thank you so much for the invite to this group. Seriously could fangirl about your books all day. I'm caught up on every one of your series, and can't wait for the next newsletter for some more Nobody Looks Good Naked!

Antonella I'm so happy to find so many readers in one place who love Penny...Yay... I read somewhere that Penny said the character in her books who is the most like her is one of a male characters. Who do you think that is?

YAYAY!! Okay ladies, here's a short sneak peek from Laws of Physics #1, MOTION. Hope you enjoy!
I watched them go. As soon as they were out of sight, I dashed to my backpack, grabbed it, and . . . hesitated. Would I have enough time to run up to my room, deposit it within, and be back in the kitchen before Abram returned?
Probably not.
Which meant I needed to hide it before he returned. There were many, many options as the kitchen was expansive. Did I hide it in the pantry? Or beneath the double oven? Or above the fridge? The unmistakable sound of the front door shutting made my decision for me. The pantry was closest, so that would be its home for the time being.
Rushing, I shoved the bag behind baking supplies on the bottom shelf. Unless Abraham—Abram? Abraham? Damn. Which one was his name?—was a closet bread maker, I felt like it was the safest place.
He’d returned.
Panicking, I reached blindly for a bag of something on the snack shelf and poked my head out of the walk-in pantry.
Following Gabby’s advice, I said, “What?”
The guy’s gaze found me, his slashing dark eyebrows pulled low giving him an air of being thoroughly pissed-off. “What are you doing?”
“Getting—” I held out the bag of whatever I’d grabbed in front of me, reading the package, “—prunes.”
Ah jeez. Prunes. Why’d it have to be prunes?
He blinked. Some of the severity in his glare was replaced with confusion as he looked between me and the bag. “Prunes.”
I nodded. What else could I do? I was holding a package of prunes, now I just had to commit to the package of prunes.
“Yes. Prunes. As you see.” Tearing it open and walking out of the pantry, I reached into the container. Slimy, larger versions of raisins were waiting for me inside.
“You’re going to eat . . . prunes?”
I nodded, struggling to find a lie that sounded as plausible as Gabby’s had been. “You don’t know anyone who eats prunes?”
“My grandpa,” he said flatly, still splitting his attention between me and the bag.
“Smart man. They’re high in fiber.”
“Yes.” I lifted the bag to scan the nutritional information, hoping they were actually high in fiber. Though I had a suspicion, I wasn’t 100 percent certain. After reading the package, I released a relieved breath. “Twelve grams of fiber per serving. It says so right here. That’s a lot. And I need my fiber.”
“Why do you need fiber?”
“Flying makes me—” oh God, don’t say it! “—makes me—” ohnoes, here it comes “—constipated.” I nodded at my own assertion, quickly stuffing my mouth with three prunes so I wouldn’t be able to speak.
His confusion persisted, but he said nothing. Holding perfectly still, he watched me with a frown that teetered on dismayed.
Meanwhile, I had to stop chewing. Each prune had a pit. Shit. There existed no graceful way to remove a pit from one’s mouth. I would have to spit the pit.
