Grin & Beard It by Penny Reid
USA TODAY Bestselling Romantic Comedy Series
Sienna Diaz is everyone’s favorite “fat” funny lady. The movie studio executives can’t explain it, but her films are out-grossing all the fit and trim headliners and Hollywood’s most beautiful elite. The simple truth is, everyone loves plus-sized Sienna.
But she has a problem, she can’t read maps and her sense of direction is almost as bad as her comedic timing is stellar. Therefore, when Sienna’s latest starring role takes her to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park she finds herself continually lost while trying to navigate the back roads of Green Valley, Tennessee. Much to her consternation, Sienna’s most frequent savior is a ridiculously handsome, charming, and cheeky Park Ranger by the name of Jethro Winston.
Sienna is accustomed to high levels of man-handsome, so it’s not Jethro’s chiseled features or his perfect physique that make Sienna stutter. It’s his southern charm. And gentlemanly manners. And habit of looking at her too long and too often.
Sienna has successfully navigated the labyrinth of Hollywood heart-throbs. But can she traverse the tenuous trails of Tennessee without losing her head? Or worse, her heart?
Quirky characters with engaging dialogue keep the pages turning in Grin & Beard It by Penny Reid. I love her writing style, it’s blunt, straightforward, and quite amusing. While this is most definitely Sienna and Jethro’s love story, I have a soft spot for Cletus. Oh, Cletus has thoroughly embedded himself in my heart. I cannot wait for his story in Beard Science!
Okay, back to Grin & Beard It. Jethro is bearded sexiness at it’s most rugged. Seriously, he can capture bears and relocate them, he can hold a Hello Kitty coffee mug with no shame, and he loves his family. Things aren’t always what they seem when you step into a Penny Reid book and this one is no different. A slow simmer burns between Jethro and Sienna, but where can it lead and is it worth the pain it might cause in the long run?
Smart characters, witty conversations, and the Winston brothers make this another Penny Reid winner! Don’t miss out and grab this one today. Grin & Beard It is a brilliant story with a ton of heart. I’ll be going in for a re-read soon.
