Review of Grin and Beard It (Winston Brothers #2) by Penny Reid

Grin and Beard It (Winston Brothers #2) by Penny Reid

Review: I completely read this series out of order, first I read the first book. Then I moved on to the third book and then the fourth before getting to this one. The only reason I moved around so much was because of Cletus. I love him so much, that I just had to read his book.

Anyway, Grin and Beard it was nice but not all that interesting. Although there were funny moments throughout the book, but nothing that made me love it or the characters. So in the end this book was just a stepping stone for me in this series. And I do feel sorry that I did not like or enjoy it more.

Favorite quote:

“And number four: don’t ration the passion, i.e. put your best fuck forward.”

Would I? Do a reread? I don’t think so. Recommend to others? I would recommend the whole series, and this book as just a get to know you book.

SummarySienna 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 backroads 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?
